Inflatable / October 10, 2018 / Tempeste DAvis.
This type of inflatable company is easy to operate but is designed for small-scale growth. For instance renting an inflatable to a household for a childs birthday party typically only happens on weekends and the largest inflatable you can buy is one that fits nicely into a large backyard. Bouncers are the most popular inflatables to buy in this situation and ball pits are a secondary choice. Since this type of business only functions on the weekends and holidays (for the most part) this is a good investment for families who are looking to make a little extra money part time.
These are a step above the event rentals but with the same basic concept. Instead of renting inflatables and choosing some employees to man them this company targets specific carnivals fairs and public events like the California State Fair. They set up a permanent location at these events pop up a large inflatable and people purchase tickets to enjoy the inflatable area for a certain period of time. For this company the wear and tear on the inflatables is less sporadic and more of a full time concern. However they make a constant stream of money during the events unlike the one-day rental options.
If you have purchased a used product you can still inquire about getting an owners manual from the bounce house manufacturer. Usually the owners manual will display a step-by-step instruction of how to setup and teardown an inflatable product. This will also cover where the tie downs are where the enter and exits ramps are located where and when to use the product what age group it is designed for and space requirements. The details covered in an owners manual will differ from company to company since one will be more thorough or precise with clearer images than the other.
And what you choose will depend upon how much time you have whether you want this to supplement your income or be your income whether you have a useable indoor space and how much money you want to put into this concept being a success. If you want to get involved in the inflatables business and see how it goes I recommend starting small with a backyard rental company and working your way up. That way you can see how the inflatables will hold up and whether a company is truly a good investment for your family. Inflatables are now rapidly taking the advertising world by storm. It is definitely the most innovative and even effective outdoor advertising techniques there is.
