Inquiring About Buying Inflatable Bounce Houses

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : August 30th, 2013 Date Updated : November 8th, 2018

Inflatable JumpersOwning your own commercial-grade inflatable bounce house business can be rewarding as well as profitable. With a relatively small investment and a bit of hard work, it is possible to enjoy financial freedom as you operate your own small business.

Naturally, when others see your success, they may inquire about what it takes to own a bouncer rental business. There are many questions you may be asked, including what it takes to run a successful operation. In this guide, we’ll share some of the tips you can provide to interested parties, helping them to make smart business-oriented decisions.

Sourcing Inflatable Products

The first question many rental business owners get is often “where did you buy your bounce houses?” In many cases, business owners may not wish to divulge all of the details, including where purchases were made. Still, if you feel comfortable answering this question with specifics and are pleased with your business investments, feel free to name-drop the manufacturing company.

More importantly, it is a good idea to talk about why you made your purchases with the chosen company. Not all inflatables manufacturers are the same, and quality varies across the industry. A good inflatables manufacturer uses superior materials and construction standards to ensure quality. Heavy-gauge vinyl fabric and stitching add durability to the completed bouncer or inflatable slide; lesser companies may use thinner fabric or skip reinforcement steps that negatively impact the life expectancy of the finished product.

The very best companies also include rigorous testing and safety procedures when manufacturing their products. Innovative safety features like blowout panels, internal baffles, and finger-friendly mesh window openings keep youngsters safe when enjoying playtime inside the moonwalks you rent to event hosts. Quality materials, quality construction, and high standards of safety should be the first priority when sourcing inflatables for your rental business – while these products may be more expensive in initial investment, they are the foundation of your operation. Don’t skimp, and encourage others to focus on the same quality in their own rental business ventures.

Outstanding Customer Service: The Cornerstone of Success

It goes without saying that customer service is a dying art, regardless of the business being discussed. Unfortunately, customer service is the leading “touch point” in customer/business interactions, and failing to invest the effort to deliver great service can mean business failure down the road. Maintaining high levels of customer service not only helps create a loyal customer base, but it can also help to create strong “word of mouth” advertising. Satisfied customers are far more likely to recommend your business to their friends and families, improving your business prospects without the expenses associated with traditional print or television advertising.

When answering questions from curious people, make a point of stressing the value and the return on investment of delivering quality customer service in any business interaction. How you manage each customer experience can spell the difference between long-term success and eventual failure of your operation. Above all, be polite and encouraging to anyone who asks questions about your business.

Again, you don’t always have to provide all the details – maintaining a certain level of secrecy about the inner workings of your operation is often a good idea, especially when dealing with competitors. Still, being friendly and open with your knowledge of the bounce house rental industry can create goodwill, possibly even convincing someone else to give this profitable business venture a try.

Inflatable JumpersWhen you first look at inflatable jumpers for sale in order to start your home based bounce house rental business it is unlikely that you took into consideration the vast amount of stress that comes with owning a business. Look online and you will find hundreds of websites that tell you how amazing it is to own any sort of home-based business. On paper, the idea of owning a business is amazing. You get to make all the decisions and you get to be your own boss earning as much money as you want. The reality of the situation, however, is extremely different and one of the biggest reasons why so many bounce house rental businesses fail is because the owners do not know how to handle stress.

It is extremely important that you learn how to handle a great deal of stress when you run your own business. It is not easy to tell everybody the one thing that they can do to alleviate stress, this is simply because everyone handle stress, and alleviates it, in a different way. Some people enjoy taking want bubble baths for other people like to go out to the shooting range. The vital part about all of this is that you need to figure out how you can alleviate the stress in your life the fastest way possible. Where can you go, or what can you do, that completely and totally relaxes you? Figure this out and plan on doing it at least once a week and you will find that the stress level you currently have decreases significantly.

Also, learn how to depend on other people. You are only one person and, if your business is successful, it is going to grow beyond what you can handle yourself. Figure out who around you is best equipped to help you out and, once you figure out who that is, bring them on board slowly. Once you learn how to trust another person, and are able to hand off some of the work to that person, you will find that the stress decreases, again, significantly.
