03 January 23 - Beware of the cheap bounce house listed on Market Place or Craig's List

We're all looking to save money but beware...

Some rental companies cut corners to save money and cutting the wrong corners can leave your party in ruins or worse yet can result in someone being seriously hurt.

When it comes to renting a bounce house, many people automatically assume the cheapest guy advertising on Facebook or Craig's List is the best option. Often these rental companies are not companies at all. They are simply people renting equipment as a side hustle.

This could mean they may not have insurance; their equipment could be old and warn out and not well-maintained resulting in injury. They may also have non-commercial grade inflatables that do not meet the industry standard for commercial rental safety. It could also mean that the units are not regularly safety inspected and that the person that comes to your house to set up your inflatable has not been professionally trained in the safety requirements recommended, properly anchoring the bounce house ensure the unit is ready for safe play.

It’s important to do your research. Don’t just go with the first company you find or the one that offers the cheapest price. Take some time to read reviews, ask about safety protocols, and find out about their cleaning process. By taking these precautions, you can help ensure that you and your guests have a fun and memorable experience.
