Should You Expand to an Indoor Bounce House Business

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : July 13th, 2013 Date Updated : May 29th, 2018

Bounce HouseWhen you start an inflatable bounce house rental business your main concern, at least at first, is trying to get new clients to find your website. Once they have found your website, and thus your business, you can begin to start renting out your units. If you play your cards correctly and do your research you should be able to expand your business significantly. But what do you do once you have expanded your business to the point that you can live off of the money you make from your bounce house business alone? One option is to expand into an indoor bounce house business.

This type of business is one that is becoming extremely popular, especially in urban areas. Often, and city areas, families do not rent an inflatable bounce house for a birthday party because they have nowhere to put it. This is extremely common and is a problem that many bounce house rental business owners run into. How do you help these clients out? By having your own location available for your use.

Some rental business owners simply purchase a large warehouse that they then rent out as necessary to their clients or to others who wish to use the space. Other owners, however, take things a step further and set up an indoor bounce house business. This type of business requires that you leave the unit inflated during your operating hours and that you charge people to come in to your business and to use the units for a specified amount of time.

This type of business can be a great way to expand your already thriving rental business but there are some things you should know. First of all, you need to remember that you will have overhead if you have an indoor business. You need to be able to make enough money to pay the rent on the space and their often specific types of paperwork you will need to have done in order to run this type of business in your city or town.

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : May 27th, 2013 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

Lime Green BouncerThere are many ways that you can make money when you own an inflatable bounce house rental business. Unfortunately, most people believe that the only way you can earn an income from this type of business is to rent to parents who are looking to use the bounce house as entertainment for their child’s birthday party. By thinking outside of the box, however, you will find that you can earn a much bigger payday while, at the same time, spreading your name.

Inflatable Play Area

When you purchased your commercial inflatable’s for sale you likely had never heard of an inflatable play area. An inflatable play area is where you set up a number of different inflatable units and allow children to use them all. You may see this type of play area at a small county fair, but they are actually becoming more and more prevalent thanks to the amount of money it’s possible to earn by simply setting one up. But how do you go about setting up an inflatable play area?

First, you need a location. In order to set up an inflatable play area you need to find a location that you are allowed to use. Many bounce house rental business owners look to local parks, and that can be a good idea. Once you have found a location you will be to get some permits. In order to get permits simply go to the city or town office, explain what you’re going to do, and fill out the forms required. You may need to pay a fee to file these forms, and you may also need to pay a fee to use the area.

Once you have your location, and your permit, it’s time to start advertising. Show pictures and videos of the commercial inflatable’s for sale that you have on social media websites and advertise where you are going to be, when you’re going to be there, and how much it is going to cost. Make sure you keep the cost low enough that families will believe the trip is worthwhile and high enough that you can make money as well. You may even want to make a deal with a local snacks vendor so that they can set up nearby allowing them to make money as children and their parents get hungry and thirsty using your equipment.

It is very important that you do not book any rental dates until your units are in your possession and you had the time to inflate them and inspect them.
  5. The moment your unit arrives, take the time to inflated and get familiar with it. Invite some neighborhood children over to jump on it and take photos that you can use for your website.

You now have the basics for a wonderful bounce house rental business. If you work as hard all year long as you had to in order to start your business you will get a great return on your investment.

Balancing Life And Your New Business

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : September 20th, 2012 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

Arch Sport ArenaThere is something you need to realize if you are going to start your very own inflatable bounce house rental business, and that is the fact that it can be very difficult to balance your home life when you own a business that you run out of your house. This is true no matter whether you already work out of the house or if you are going to run your inflatable bounce house rental business full-time. If your business is run out of your house, you will find that there are going to be many things that are frustrating.

One of the first things that you will discover that is very frustrating is the fact that people do not seem to realize you’re working because you are doing so out of your house. Many people tend to have in their mind that someone who works from home has plenty of free time available. This is definitely not true, and in reality people who work from home tend to have less free time available then those who work strictly outside of the home. When you have an inflatable bounce house rental business that is run out of your home you will spend countless hours on the phone, on the computer, or at the setup location in order to keep your business going. How, then, do you balance having a life and running your very own business?

Being Assertive

One of the first things you will need to do if you want to retain your sanity when you own and inflatable bounce house rental business is to be assertive. If you’re going to be spending the hours of 7 – 9 PM doing paperwork on a weekday, make sure you explain to anyone who tries to contact you during that time who is not interested in the business side of your life that you’re not available to talk. You will need to have a very firm hand when it comes to situations like this. In order to have a business that thrives there are times you will need to dedicate yourself to the business, and during those times you cannot allow friends and family to get in the way.

But all work and no play definitely is not good either, which is why you should always set time aside to spend with your family and friends on a regular basis. Many inflatable bounce house rental business owners refuse to work on Sundays so that they can devote an entire day to their family and friends, which is definitely not a bad idea.
