Getting the Biggest Bounce from Inflatables: Five Tips

May 20, 2013 No Comments
  1. Make a List. Start by defining what you hope to accomplish, factoring in any restrictions such as space and height.
  2. Check it Twice. When listing your requirements, be specific.
  3. Talk the Talk. Do your research, including talking to others with inflatables and attending trade shows to find the right manufacturer.
  4. Make a Quick Study. Evaluate installation and service costs and benefits for each potential manufacturer.
  5. Try and See. Always buy for quality, and when in doubt, rent the unit first to test performance and guest satisfaction.
