Starting an inflatable rental business can be an excellent way to generate a steady income and have fun. Kids of all ages enjoy playing on bounce houses, inflatable slides, obstacle courses, and other games at parties, fairs, carnivals, and other types of special events.
If you want to start an inflatable rental business, you will first need to purchase some inflatables to rent. You can choose from bounce houses, slides, and obstacle courses in a variety of colors with many fun themes.
You will need to carefully transport and store your inflatables to keep them in good condition. Failing to take care of your inflatables can cause them to become damaged, which means you will have to pay for repairs and will also lose money by not being able to rent them for parties.
How to Move Inflatables
Inflatables vary greatly in terms of size and weight. They generally weigh at least 100 pounds. Some larger inflatables can weigh several hundred pounds. They can be even heavier if they get wet.
It is easy to hurt your back when moving heavy inflatables if you are not careful and do not use the right equipment. The most difficult parts of running an inflatable rental business are loading the inflatables into the truck, unloading them at parties, setting them up, and repacking the truck.
Inflatables are much easier to transport to and from parties if you can move them on wheels. A dolly or hand truck can help you move an inflatable bounce house, slide, or obstacle course from your truck to a backyard or wherever you are going to set it up. It can be difficult to move an inflatable over wet grass. For a large inflatable or an area with a hill, you may need two people to move the inflatable and set it up.
Where to Store Inflatables
You will need a place to store your inflatables when they are not being used. The amount of space you need will depend on the number and size of the inflatables you have. Make sure your storage location is clean and dry and that animals cannot get in. Animals could scratch or chew through inflatables and cause them to tear, which could require costly repairs.
