What Should I Delegate for My Bounce House Rental Business

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : August 28th, 2013 Date Updated : May 29th, 2018

Bounce HouseAnyone who first start the business is excited about the prospect of their business growing so large that they are able to earn a decent amount of money. Unfortunately, what most people do not realize is that when businesses grow things can be difficult. It can be very tricky for someone who owns a small business to learn how to trust another person to handle their businesses affairs. It is definitely not something that you are contemplating when you are looking at big commercial jumpers for sale.

There are a few tricks when it comes to figuring out how to delegate a part of your business to someone else. The first trick is to figure out what, exactly, you do not want to do. Figure out the things that you are currently required to do that you either are not very good at doing or that you really hate to do. Those are going to be the first things that you want to delegate to someone else. By selecting only things that you truly do not enjoy doing, or that you are not good at doing, you’re making it easier on yourself to trust someone else to do the work for you. If you were to delegate something that you love doing to employee you would likely quickly discover that you have a very hard time doing it because you know that you could do the job better yourself.

Let’s say, for instance, that you thoroughly hate handling billing. If you truly do detest billing than that would be something you would want to hand off to someone else. By hiring someone who is good at billing you will find that not only is it easy for you to give up the control of billing to someone else, you will also find that you feel happier in knowing that the billing is being taken care of properly. Remember: always delegate the tasks that you truly do not enjoy doing, or those that you are not very good at handling, in order to make heading off a little piece of your business just that much easier.

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : February 20th, 2013 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

Sport Arena 3One of the great things about starting a bounce house for rent business is that it’s something almost anyone can do. Simply find a great place to purchase jumpers for sale, learn a little bit about how to run a business, and you’re able to start earning money. The longer you own your business, however, the more interested you are likely going to get in the business world and you will soon learn about something known as an LLC. But what is an LLC, and do you need to have one for your business?

Understanding LLC

LLC stands for limited liability company. An LLC is defined as a type of business that has characteristics of both a corporation and either a sole proprietorship or partnership, depending on how many owners your business happens to have. Basically an LLC is a type of unincorporated association and is not considered to be a corporation, however it does include limited liability and is not something that you need to be a lawyer to understand.

Why would you want to have an LLC? Some business owners find that having an LLC allows him to sleep better at night. This is because it is considered to be a legal entity that is recognized by your state government and is designed to help protect your assets should you happen to be named in a lawsuit. It also helps to create professional structure for the business that you are running and can give you more flexibility in choosing a tax structure that will fit your business.

Should I Get One?

Likely one of the last things you are thinking about when you are looking at jumpers for sale is if you’re going to need to get an LLC. There are many reasons why you may want to get an LLC, and the simple fact of the matter is that many bounce house rental business owners do get one mainly because there is definitely a chance of injury when you have children jumping around in a bounce house. Having an LLC can help protect your business, and your assets, and is actually not that difficult to set up. There are many websites that will explain to you how you can set up an LLC legally without spending a huge amount of money. It may be something you want to look into.

Growing Pains and Your Inflatable Business

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : January 15th, 2013 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

Fun CastleWhen you first start your commercial inflatable jumper rental business, expanding will likely be the last thing on your mind. When you first begin any sort of business the main focus is getting it up, running, and profitable. If you do your job right, however, sooner than you know your business will be ready to expand. This means more advertising, possibly hiring help, and one thing that you will definitely need more of – space. Most inflatable jumper rental business owners store their jumpers in their garages. These units, however, are definitely large and after a short amount of time you will find that you are going to run out of room to store everything. What do you do that?

Your Options

What kind options do you have when it comes to storing your inflatable jumper units? If you run out of room to store your units in your garage, there are a few options you have available. Some of the options are more affordable than others, so it is a good idea to list all of the options you have available and to research the financial repercussions of each option before you make a final decision.

One option is to rent a storage facility. Storage facilities can be a great place to store your units, but it is a good idea to make sure that you read an inside, climate controlled unit in order to make sure that no damage comes to your inflatable jumper units. A climate controlled storage facility may cost a bit more than a regular storage facility that it would cost much more to replace all your units if they got damaged by heat.

Another option is to rent a storefront. Some bounce house rental business owners choose to rent out a storefront and to work from that location. There are some benefits to this, including higher visibility for clientele and a more professional look. But you also need to remember that renting out storefront can be fairly expensive, so make sure that you have the income coming in to warrant making that choice.

Your final option is to build some sort of storage facility on your land. If you have even half of an acre of land you have more than enough room to build a large storage shed. There are all sorts of different storage sheds you can purchase that are easy to put together, even if you don’t have much building experience. Remember: make sure you look at all of your options before you make a final decision when it comes to storing your rental units.

Locals Invested in Your Business

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : August 10th, 2012 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

Castle Module IIHow often do you drive past a local store and completely ignore it in order to go to the big box chain store that is quite a few more miles down the road, simply because it will save you money? It’s not uncommon for someone to drive past the more expensive smaller stores simply because they want to save money, but that does nothing to help the local economy. It often is not until a new business owner has started their own business that they realize how important local businesses are. But what do purchasing jumpers for sale for your own business have to do with local businesses, and why would you want local businesses interested in your business?

Small World

Anyone who has started a business before knows that the support that you get from friends and family can make, or break, a business. What they often don’t realize is that the very same statement is true when it comes to other local businesses as well. Small businesses need to band together, as they help to support one another. Let’s say that you have a party event rental location fairly near to your bounce house rental business. You two business owners would be silly to not be friends with each other, as customers tend to want to look for jumpers for sale, or bounce houses for rent, at the same time as they’re looking for party supplies! If the two of you are friends, or at least friendly colleagues, you can recommend the shop to any client that you have, doubling your exposure on an on-going basis.

Even if your business has nothing to do with another business, it’s a good idea to make friends with the owner. Local business owners do need to band together as you never know when you will need to support one another. Supporting small local businesses makes a huge amount of sense when you own your own business, and can definitely be a great way to get your business more exposure. Not only that, if your business is accepted by the locals, they will be more likely to recommend you to their clients and before you know it you’ll have the same clientele as all of the other local businesses, breaking into their already-successful businesses to get more attention to your own business in a very healthy way.

What To Do With Older Jumpers

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : December 17th, 2011 Date Updated : May 29th, 2018

3 Pieces Slide Bounce CourseOnce you’ve had your business for a few years you will begin to feel that it is time to do a bit of upgrading, and the best way to do that is to switch out your older bounce houses for new ones. This can bring a fresh feel to the business as the houses will look brand new and will have that new “smell” that comes with a newer bounce house. Nope, there’s nothing better than getting a new bounce house for your business, but that leaves you with one problem: what do you do with your older bounce houses?

Selling Your Jumper

What most bounce house rental business owners do is to actually sell their older houses. Now it’s not quite as simple as putting up a “jumper for sale” sign on your lawn, as you would definitely want to make sure that whomever gets it knows how to use it, and that you are not held legally responsible for anything that occurs once someone else owns it. But first things’ first: selling it. One great tip is to set it up and to take a number of great pictures of the jumper while it’s up and running. Try getting pictures of children on it as that makes it seem much more real to people.

The next tip? Where to sell it. Try selling it through online garage sales, such as through Craigslist, as this is a great way to reach a wide audience. You may want to sell locally so that you don’t have to worry about shipping it somewhere, as they can be very heavy. Once you’ve located a buyer, set up the paperwork. You will want paperwork that not only transfers the property to the buyer, but also that states that you are not to be held responsible for anything that occurs while the buyer owns it.

Then, while you don’t have to, it may be a good idea to teach the new buyer how to use the jumper for sale that they have purchased from you. Offer to set it up with them once and to deflate it once. It’s best to sell it to a private owner, rather than someone who wants to start a business, as starting a bounce house business with a used jumper is often not a good idea.
