Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Does the price include set up and delivery?
A: Yes. If a delivery fee applies, the system will let you know.
Q: Do you deliver to other cities?
A: Yes, but once again please be aware that due to rising gas prices and the possible need for an extra truck and labor that travel fees can be quite high. Please call our office for a current quote.
Q: When do you set up?
A: That depends on how many rentals we have that day. Generally we arrive 1-3 hours before the rental time begins. If we have a lot of rentals that day, we may need to set up as early as 4 hours in advance. If this is the case, we will call the Friday before to confirm that someone will be at the party location.
Q: We've rented some really dirty jumps from other companies in the past. Are they always that dirty?
A: No. [company name] cleans and disinfects at each setup.
Q: Do we have to keep it plugged in the entire time?
A: Yes. A blower keeps air in the jump unit the entire time. Once unplugged they deflate. That's why we require an outlet within 50¥ of the unit or a generator. Longer cords can pop your circuit breaker so we bring our own heavy duty cords.
Q: What about parks? Do parks have electricity?
A: We love setting up at parks but most parks do NOT have electricity. If you want to set up at a park, you must rent a generator. We rent generators at a reasonable cost. Also, parks are first come, first serve so get your spot early in the day.
Q: What payments do you take?
A: Cash or Credit Cards. If paying by cash, please have exact change as our drivers do not carry cash.
Q: What if we need to cancel?
A: Due to the fact that all our equipment is by reservation only, and your requested equipment is removed from our available equipment inventory, making it unavailable for other clients; we are forced to charge a Cancellation Fee which would be your minimum required deposit in order to compensate for the time the equipment is not available. However, if you cancel more than 10 days ahead of your event, the minimum deposiit plus whatever else you paid beyond that, will be fully refunded. There is absolutley no same day cancellations allowed. The full price of your rental invoice will still be due if you cancel the sameday of your event. Please read the next question and answer below regarding deposits for more details and specifics.
Q: Do you require a deposit?
A: Yes all orders require a minimum $35 Credit Card deposit from your balance although you may pay more than the minimum including paying in full. Minimum Deposits are fully refundable if you cancel your order at least 10 days prior to your rental date. If you cancel between 1-9 days prior to your rental you will be given a rain check that is good for 1 year. However management reserves the right to forfeit the raincheck if neccessary. Any deposits paid over the $35 minimum, is fully refundable up to 24 hrs before your event. There is absolutlely no same day cancellations allowed. The full price of your rental invoice will still be due if you cancel the day of.
Q: How big are the jumps?
A: Most of our jumps (all of our character jumps for example) are 15¥x15¥ which is a little bigger than many companies rent. Please note the space required for each jump (listed near the large picture) as some are VERY big and require extra space. When in doubt, measure your space to make sure it will fit. Jumps need room to be staked and they need room for the blower and can't rub against walls or trees as this may damage the jump. The sizes listed with each jump include the space needed for stakes etc. If you have stairs or a tiered backyard, please call our office to discuss options for setup.
Q: What about the big jumps? Any special requirements?
A: Check the requirements listed with each jump. Also, make sure you have at least a 4¥ access to the area where it will be set up. The jumps can weigh up to 650 pounds so we need a clear path with ample room.
Q: What surfaces do you set up on?
A: We can set up on Grass (our favorite and best for the kids), dirt, asphalt, and concrete. Sorry, we can't set up on any type of rocks as the constant rubbing will wear through the vinyl jumps.
Q: Can we see a copy of your contract and safety rules?
A: Yes. There is a link in your receipt once you've ordered or you may contact our office.
Q: Are we responsible for the unit if it gets a tear or damaged in any way?
A: Yes and no. You are not responsible for normal wear and tear on our units. Seams may develop tears in high traffic areas over a period of time. If this happens please alert us at once so we can remedy the situation. If however, damage occurs due to failure to follow our safety rules or negligence (i.e. not turning off the blower in high winds) you will be responsible for all damages up to and including replacement of the unit/blower etc which can cost thousands of dollars. We don't want you or us to be in that situation which is why we have you sign and initial on all of our safety rules so that you can be the trained operator.
