Inquiring About Buying Inflatable Bounce Houses

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.

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.

When You Buy Inflatable Jumpers And Aren’t Happy

Posted By : Gary Simon Date Created : October 25th, 2012 Date Updated : May 30th, 2018

Balloon Bounce HouseIn an ideal world, everything that you would purchase would come to your door in perfect working order and would be exactly what you thought it was supposed to be. Unfortunately, we don’t live in a perfect world and far too often recently people are discovering that they are ordering items and receiving products that are not anywhere near what they thought they were going to be. What, then, do you do when you buy inflatable jumpers that are not what you believe they were going to be?

Firstly, it’s important to make sure that you have high quality manufacturer available to purchase from. One of the biggest reasons that people do not get the order they believed they were going to get is because the order from a company that is not equipped to handle such orders. Businesses that are new often promise things that they are unable to deliver. That is why, before you look to buy inflatable jumpers, you need to make sure that you are looking for a manufacturer who is been in the business for a while and who is adequately able to handle your needs.

If you do purchase from a manufacturer who does not meet your expectations, there are a few things you can do. Firstly, make sure that you contact the manufacturer as soon as you realizes something is wrong. This means that it’s important that you actually set up the inflatable jumper you purchased as soon as you are able to after it arrives so that you can check over the entire unit. Never assume when you buy inflatable jumpers that they are going to be perfect, as there is nothing more disastrous than setting up a brand-new jumper at a party only to discover that it is either not what you ordered or that there is a problem with it. If you contact the manufacturer and are unable to get a resolution that you are happy with, you should then look to the Better Business Bureau. The BBB is designed to make sure that consumers get what they pay for and are the best people to go to if you are having a problem dealing with a manufacturer. Remember: you don’t have to settle for a product that you are unhappy with. When you buy inflatable jumpers, you should get exactly what you pay for.
