Bouncy Castle Hire – What to be aware of Before Hiring a Bouncy Castle

Hiring a good bouncy castle can really make a children’s party, but it can be a stressful time for the parents that are in charge of ordering it. Finding the right bouncy castle hire company can be a difficult job, since there aren’t usually bouncing castle for rent any online reviews (as you get with lots of businesses and products these days) letting you know which companies to trust and which to avoid.

That being said, finding a bouncy castle hire company is easier than ever these days, since they can be found in either the local directories (such as the Yellow Pages) or through online directories (such as the Yellow Pages’ website). One good way to get a list of companies in your area is to type ‘bouncy castle hire’ and your town/city name into Google. For example, you might type in ‘bouncy castle hire Huntsville, AL’ if you live in Huntsville.

While I have previously stated that there are very few online reviews of these companies, it can be worth checking around online forums to see if there’s any feedback regarding the companies that you might be considering (again, do this by searching on Google). Obviously you never know where these comments might have come from (it could even be the company posting positive feedback about themselves), but it would be wise to pay some attention to them because 99% of the time they are genuine.

Once you’ve made a shortlist of a few local companies, take the time to call each one and ask them what kind of service they are offering (and how much it costs). Some companies may only offer just one kind of bouncing castle for rental, whereas others may have several different kinds (and several different sizes). It is important to be clear about what you want, and it also helps if you have a rough idea of the number of the people that’ll be on the bouncy castle at the same time. Many places require a deposit when they hire a bouncing castle from them, so don’t be surprised or suspicious when they ask for one.

The best way to find a good bouncy castle rental company is usually to ask a few of your friends about their experiences since they’re bound to give you completely honest feedback that you can trust.

One of the most important things to think about when hiring bouncy castles is insurance. There are two different types of insurance that you should have: Accidental damage insurance and liability insurance. Liability insurance protects anyone that’s injured when bouncing on the castle. It’s important to have this kind of insurance, so when talking to rental companies be sure to ask about this.

The second type of insurance (accidental insurance) is in case you accidentally damage the bouncing castle. While most castles are made to be extremely tough and durable, they are effectively just a big balloon, and we all know balloons can pop! One of the most common ways that they get damaged is when someone jumps on them whilst carrying a set of keys (possibly in their pocket). If you land on a set of keys there’s a good chance that they can create a puncture in the fabric. Before any bouncing castle is hired, it’s important that you acknowledge who’s responsible for which damages. Follow these steps and you’ll be on the way to a successful bouncy castle hire!
