Inflatable / October 10, 2018 / Zurie Chandonnet
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.
All it requires is a prime location a large indoor space and a series of inflatables to fill the space. Because of its indoor nature these companies dont experience the same problems with sun damage and accidental punctures that outdoor rental companies face. However with constant use comes typical wear and tear so be prepared to have backup inflatables for replacements while used inflatables are patched and repaired. Also the cost of a large enough rental space will be rather high as well as the cost of utilities and maintenance. So as you can see there are four main options if you want to start an inflatables business.
You could easily paddle on remote lakes or rivers. Or how about taking your kayak on vacation with you? Bring it in your luggage on the plane and you could be kayaking almost anywhere in the world. That would be pretty difficult to do with a hard-shell kayak. You could take an inflatable kayak on a city bus or bicycle to the water. During off season the kayak would take up minimal storage space. Inflatable Kayaks are Tough and Durable When most people think of an inflatable kayak they picture a cheaply made plastic boat for kids. They picture a kayak that would burst from hitting the smallest rock or branch.
