Helpful Accessory Items For Your Business   When operating an inflatable rental business, it is important to have a few key accessory items on hand. Accessory items are the name given to the extra pieces that typically give your customers a better experience with inflatable games or interactive units.   You should consider adding the items below to your accessory items inventory to help you operate your inflatable rental business more efficiently.  Extra Game Accessories If you’ve purchased sport or interactive game units, you’ll likely have balls, boxing gloves and helmets to look after. It’s always smart to order extras of these items, as they can become easily lost over time. You’ll want to avoid putting yourself in a situation where you aren’t able to rent out your units because you’re waiting on an order of accessories. Moreover, game accessories can become worn after repeated use, so it’s good to have extras on hand when that time arrives.   Slide Co

Transportation Your vehicle will be an important element to your inflatable rental business, as they will become your trusted means to get you and your units safely to and from events. As a result, you’ll want to be sure to choose a vehicle that will serve you well throughout your years in this business.  When you are just beginning, a classic pickup truck is always a great option to consider. As your business expands, you may want to look into adding a trailer to your truck, or consider using a box truck.   Here are some helpful tips to consider when choosing your vehicle:   Pickup truck When looking for a pickup truck, it wise to choose one that has an open bed (a Ford F-150 is a great starter option) and a lift gate.   A lift gate will make your life much easier as you deliver your units.

Equipment Maintenance Inflatable units bring a lot of joy to customers and, as a result, they can become worn if they are not properly maintained. Your inflatable units are the backbone of your business, so you’ll want to do everything you can to protect your investment. Here are some tips for properly maintaining your units. Use ground covers Ground covers may seem like an unnecessary extra load to carry around, but make no mistake about it, these covers will save you a lot of headache in the long run. When laid out properly, ground covers increase the longevity of your units by protecting them from rips and tears. A vinyl tarp works best for dry units. For wet units, you’ll want to use a canvas tarp, as vinyl becomes very slippery when wet.   Set a cleaning schedule With the heavy amount of use your inflatable units will get week after week, it is wise for you to stick to a cleaning schedule on a weekly-basis, or even a twice-weekly basis for highly rented units.
