This entry was posted on July 24, 2015.
Inflatable party rental businesses are in high demand. With the growing popularity of renting inflatable equipment for parties and school, community, private or corporate events, renting inflatable structures can easily grow into a very lucrative business. However, like any business venture, the inspiring entrepreneur will have initial expenses before starting their new inflatable business. Buying quality inflatable structures is the biggest expense for new business owners. While inflatables are a mandatory expense, there are ways to save money when starting and growing your party rental business.
1. Buying Quality Inflatable Equipment
There are many different brands of inflatable structures in various sizes, shapes and prices on the market to choose from. When purchasing bounces houses for a new or existing business it is important to buy quality bouncers that are reliable and durable. Nothing kills an inflatable business faster than poor quality equipment that tear or malfunction easily during an event. Tent and Table uses only the highest quality, most durable materials for our inflatables. Our products exceed government standards in quality, reliability and safety. The seams are reinforced to guarantee that they will not rip or tear easily. All of our bounce houses are designed with safety features such as higher walls, reinforced mesh netting and built in water hoses and drainage systems to keep users safe from injury while using the unit.
2. Buying vs Renting Equipment
Buying bounce houses or other inflatable equipment at the beginning of your business rather than renting will save far more money in the short and long term. While renting your structures reduces your monthly expenses and helps when you don't have your own equipment to rent out, it can also decrease your profit margins. Inflatables pay for themselves rather quickly so once the initial investment has been recovered, the rest is profit.
3. Buying Used Bounce Houses
To have a successful business, entrepreneurs should own at least 2 or more bounce houses. Purchasing used bouncers at the start of a business is a great way to gain stock while saving money. Tent and Table has several used bounce houses that are less than a year old for sale. The used bounce houses are cheaper than brand new units but are equally high in quality and durability. While there may be some slight discoloration on the equipment from natural wear and tear, each bouncer has been professionally inspected and repaired to ensure that they are in excellent, ready-to-use condition before they are sold. Tent and table also sells other used products that you will need for your business including tables, chairs and tents. All of our used products are professionally inspected and repaired prior to being sold. All are guaranteed to be in excellent, ready-to-use condition.
4. Promotions, Sales and Package Deals
Tent and Table has many promotions and sales every month on quality bounce houses and accessories. Buying one of our new, high quality, ready-to-use units during a promotion or sale will help reduce the initial overhead costs of a new business. We have many inflatable structures on sale throughout the month as well as other equipment and accessories you will need for your business such as tents, tables, chairs, hooks, blowers, sandbags, bounce house storage bags, tarps and other equipment.
An inflatable business has many financial and personal rewards. However, like any new business, there are initial start-up costs that are a necessary part of starting a new business. There are ways to reduce these initial start up costs without compromising on the quality of the product or business.
