When you start a bounce house business, one of the last things that may be on your mind is figuring out what you were going to do with your bounce house if you are unable to go to the clients house to retrieve it. When you first start renting out things like commercial inflatable slides, you will likely have only a few units that you need to rent out. This means that should be easy for you to set up, and pick up, units on the very same day they are rented. As your business grows, however, you will likely find that it is much more difficult to set up an retrieve the unit on the same day. What happens then?
First, check with the client who rented the unit and ask them if it is possible for you to leave the unit at their home overnight. That is, if the weather is planning on being sunny, of course. If rain is expected, it is extremely important to make sure that you get the unit down and packed away so that he can stay dry even if that means recruiting some friends or family to help you. It is much better to have the commercial inflatable slide packed messily then to have it extremely soaked.
If the weather is going to be sunny and your customer has no problem with keeping the unit overnight, it’s important that you realize that you will need to give them some sort of a benefit for keeping the unit for you overnight. This can be as simple as allowing them to keep the unit inflated and to continue jumping on it through the night, and into the next morning if they would like to, without you charging them any extra amount. This can be great for families who have children as they will feel like they are able to truly get their money’s worth, and because they will feel this way it’s likely that they will tell their friends and family about your business getting you more potential customers. It’s almost impossible to run a large business alone, and if you get to the point when you are leaving the commercial inflatable slide at a customer’s house overnight more often than not, that may be a signal that you need to hire some help, which means that your business is growing and expanding and is definitely a good thing!
