HIRING A BOUNCY CASTLEIf you’re planning to hire a bouncy castle for a birthday party, garden party, wedding, corporate event, or something entirely different, then use these top tips to ensure you get the best bouncy castle for the job, and the best deal.
Firstly, you should ask your bouncy castle hirer if they have a copy of the Health and Safety Executive’s latest guidelines on safe use, and if they can make you a copy of the bouncy castle operation guidelines to ensure you use the bouncy castle correctly.
It is also worth checking if the bouncy castle hire company you are thinking of using is a member of the Inflatable Play Manufacturers Association (IPMA), and whether all their bouncy castles have been approved by the association.
If you are hiring a bouncy castle or other inflatable activity gear for a public event then you must make sure that you have public liability insurance for the event to cover the cost of any injuries or accidents sustained at the event.
These days, bouncy castles are extremely popular for kids’ parties and garden parties, particularly in the summer months so it is advisable to book your castle well in advance to avoid disappointment.
Most bouncy castle hire firms let out their bouncy castles and inflatable games on a day or 24-hour rate, and it is best to check with the company exactly how long you will have the castle for before you agree to hire it.
Finally, be sure to ask the bouncy castle hire company exactly how much space the bouncy castle requires as this differs depending on the size of the castle. You should also check it is suitable for indoor or outdoor use, depending which you want to use it for.
