Buyer’s Guide — Though you can easily rent a bounce house, it would be much more cost-effective to purchase your own.
Now that Spring has arrived and Summer is rapidly approaching, I’m sure you’ve begun to consider your upcoming Portland summer event and the sort of entertainment you’ll have. If you and your event planning team have considered renting inflatables and bounce houses for your event, you’ve also looked into the costs of doing so.
If you have young children, choose a bouncer with a neutral theme that they can develop into and that you can reuse as much as possible. A fun castle bounce house, for example, can be used for any child in the family and decorated for any occasion. A giant slide or obstacle course may be used repeatedly without eliciting groans for being “made for little kids.”
What are the requirements of your family?
The last bit about the various types of inflatables was hopefully instructive, but don’t rush out and buy a bounce house just yet. We should also worry about your family’s needs and the costs of running a bounce house.
Most inflatables, except for retail bounce houses, are enormous. They can weigh hundreds of pounds, necessitating the use of a dolly or hand truck (both sold separately). Cleaning your bounce house may be a pain at first, but it will get easier once you get the hang of it.
Setting up and dismantling a bounce house are two-person tasks. One individual may set up a small retail bouncer, but they are not appropriate for older children. Anything large enough for children aged six and up would need two people to safely operate. As a result, accept the need for adult assistance.
You’ll also want to ensure you have a secure location where you can store your bounce house when it’s not in use, which is particularly important in colder climates. You should store your bounce house somewhere clean, wet, and dry, such as a garage.
You should also consider how much your children will use their new bounce house. If you can only see them using it once a season, it may be a smart idea to simply contact a local party rental company and inquire about rates. However, if you think they’ll use it three or four times during the summer, buying it yourself will save you money in the long run.
So, now that I know what I want, where do I get a bounce house?
If you’ve decided on a retail bounce house, you’ll find one at your local big box shop. Naturally, you’ll want to read the product details carefully and consider online reviews. Remember, once your kids get a little older, these bounce houses turn into the proverbial pumpkin. They’re usually unsuitable for children.
