New Jersey and Pennsylvania are the toughest states to have an inflatable rental company but they are leading the way on safe operation of inflatable products. This article will discuss some of the latest safety practices that will ensure a damage and injury free party rental. Inflatables have different names such as bounce houses jumpers moonwalks moon bounces and so forth and are used interchangeably in this article. Every jumper rental company and operator should start off with reading the manufacturers owners manual the day they receive their inflatable products.
Paying a little more for your Inflatables can save you a lot of money in the long run not to mention a whole lot of aggravation and lost customers! Buying the cheapest Inflatables can many times turn out to be a very expensive mistake. You should ask yourself how much in lost rental revenue you will incur if that bargain Inflatable falls apart in a few months right in the middle of your busy season. A lot more than you might think. And good luck trying to get it fixed in less than a month or two. (Especially if it has to be shipped back to China for repairs.) During that time you would have lost 10-15 rentals multiplied by your average rental rate which could cost you as much as Two Thousand Dollars or more each time your China Inflatable is out for repair.
Once all anchors are fastened and the inflatable is fully inflated the delivery person can now check to make sure that wires are not causing a tripping hazard there are no sharp objects protruding near or on the inflatable there are no overhead power lines and so forth. Making sure every precautions are taken to ensure safety. Most often than not an injury will occur when a delivery person gets too careless about setting up the inflatable and doesnt follow all the safety steps. Inflatable products should never be used during certain weather conditions. Winds over 20-25 miles per hour can cause the inflatable to move or if the speed is high enough to make it airborne.
This will make the renter more knowledgeable about the situation and also be able to supervise the participants. There should always be a responsible adult supervising the inflatable and the participants using it. The adult attendant should make sure the participants are not breaking any manufacturer-designated rules. It is always a good idea to open up your inflatable product when you receive it from the manufacturer and test it out yourself. The best way to gain experience on delivery and safety is to experience the product yourself and study what potential safety hazards there can be and work from there.
