How To Rent Inflatables for School Events

While party rental opportunities seem to decrease in the fall as kids return to school, plenty more become available too! Party inflatables can be utilized in numerous ways to help provide students and teachers alike a great time at school! Here are a few examples of how you can rent out inflatables to schools! 

Power up P.E. with some inflatables! Whether it’s competing in sports challenges, overcoming a massive obstacle course, or just bouncing away in a bounce house, inflatables offer different ways for kids to get active and have fun doing it. They can also help build a sense of friendly competition and cooperation among students. After a long day in class, kids will be delighted to play in your inflatables! 

School events such as open house, assemblies, and fundraisers are the perfect time to rent out inflatables! Having inflatables on hand can attract more attendees and encourage engagement. Happier guests will in turn lead to a more successful event for both the school and your business! As parents are heavily involved with these events, this is an excellent opportunity to introduce yourself to potential clients! 

Schools hold several fun events throughout the year for both faculty and families, and inflatables can be a great boost! Consider renting out inflatables with themes for holiday-themed class parties around Halloween and Christmas. Carnivals and fairs are another option to consider as the open space means you can often rent multiple units. These events are also a great place to showcase your company and inflatables to a wider audience! 

JumpOrange is the perfect choice to provide your party rental business with top notch inflatables! We offer units in a variety of themes and colors ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. Plus, they are highly durable and easy to clean and maintain. Together, let’s turn your school events into unforgettable experiences for everyone!

How To Start A Party Rental Business

The party rental industry is growing rapidly, and now’s the perfect time to join! Starting a party rental business can be both a lucrative and fulfilling opportunity, and with proper preparation, anyone can succeed in it! Here are a few tips on starting your own business!   

Before committing to a party rental business, do some market research. Factors such as demographics and climate will play a role in the viability of your chosen market. You will want to identify competitors and how you can stand out from them in your market. Examining places such as schools, community centers, and local businesses can also help you determine future customers to supplement your client base of families. 

We highly recommend starting out with one bounce house, one combo, and one 14-15 ft slide, preferably ones with more general colors and theming. This will help you reach a wider range of clients when starting out, and as the business grows, you can add more units such as 19 ft slides, obstacle courses, and games, as well as more specialized themes. Don’t forget to invest in liability insurance to protect your business.

Using a variety of online channels will help you streamline your business. A website can provide structure for inflatable inventory and bookings, while social media accounts can help you reach out and expand your customer base. By providing excellent service you can also earn glowing reviews on sites such as Google and Yelp. Keep your online profiles up to date with engaging content and you’ll quickly increase your reach! 

At JumpOrange, we also offer JEM Club Membership! This is the perfect way to save on startup costs with free shipping options, discounts on inflatables, and access to marketing materials. We also have plenty of industry insider knowledge we would be happy to share. Let us partner with you and help you maximize your business!

Fall Inflatable Rental Opportunities

With the busy season of summer over, it might seem like the time to wrap it up and call it a year. However, it’s still possible for party rental businesses to take advantage of the unique opportunities available in the offseason. Here are a few ideas on renting your inflatables during the fall.

Inflatables have increased in popularity at wedding reception events. The cooling temperatures during the fall months make bounce house rentals a viable option for weddings. Younger children in attendance will greatly enjoy the chance for playtime during the reception, and the bride and groom can even join in on the fun too!

While kids returning to school usually means fewer parties, it can also provide new opportunities for party rental businesses. Events such as school carnivals or back to school nights provide great opportunities for party rental businesses to participate in their communities during the fall. You might even consider renting out your inflatable obstacle courses as a fun alternative for kids in P.E. class! 

While trick or treating is most popular around Halloween, the holiday also inspires similar local events. Pumpkin patches are a fantastic place to rent inflatables since they operate alongside other entertainment options such as petting zoos, hayrides, and mazes. Communities and churches often hold their own events as alternatives to trick or treating around Halloween and are excellent ways to rent your inflatables. 

These are only some of the opportunities that are still available for party rental businesses during the fall. Are there any other autumn events that your business has found success in renting out for? Let us know!

Inflatable Combinations and Collections

One inflatable is sure to generate excitement at any party or event, so naturally adding inflatable combinations to your rental opportunity would be even more effective! For example, consider attaching a slide with its matching slip n slide partner for hot summer days! You can also try renting out a bounce house alongside an obstacle course to keep kids moving! Here are a few ways to mix and match JumpOrange inflatables together!

The 18 Ft Slides in the Classic collection can be attached to their matching Slip N Slides. The Sport Challenge collection is another example of interchangeable inflatables! With baseball, basketball, football, frisbee, golf, soccer, and archery games, these compact inflatables fit in seamlessly at any event!

The Shadow Obstacle Course set comes in seven pieces. Each piece can rent out individually. However, combining all 7 pieces forms a massive 75 ft obstacle course perfect for large-scale events!

The Mermaid collection is one of JumpOrange’s most complete product lines. With a variety of slides and bouncers, it has an inflatable for any occasion. Combine any number of them for the ultimate undersea playground! The Ocean Battle, Rocker, and Ice Pops themes also offer similar-sized collections.Most collections within this series offer a 15 ft slide, a 19 ft slide, a 13’X13’ bounce house, and a dual-lane combo. This makes it very easy to match inflatables with the same theme. The X-Series also lends itself well to mix-and-matching.The American Boxing, Thunder, and T-Rex lines all have inflatable dual lane combos to go with their respective slides. The American Boxing line also has an inflatable punching game that makes a great side inflatable for a patriotic party. the newly introduced Electric bounce house and Jaguar wraparound combo offer unique additions to any collection.

The XLD series have quickly become fan favorites thanks to the highly requested detachable pool feature! The Galaxy, I’mperfectly, Mysterious Jungle, Oasis, and Queen collections all offer slides and combos that go well together. Meanwhile, the Cali Palms and Dolphins collections added slip n slides and dual lane combos to go along with their slides.

These are all just a few examples of effective themed inflatable combinations. You may even find that a mix and match strategy for your inflatables from different themes and designs at your event leads to greater success! The possibilities are only limited by your imagination!
