Children's Party Bounce House Information


Alright, we need to have a discussion. When you are planning your son or daughter's birthday party, there are certain items and activities that will be a given. You have probably already went over the menu which usually includes fare such as pizza, hotdogs, chips and pop. Of, course there will be a time of opening gifts as well. Possibly a few games to play. But you have been thinking about what is on the agenda and there seems to be something missing. You are wondering if there is an item or activity that could take the party to another level of excitement and fun. And we believe that there is. Add a bounce house to your birthday party and you won't believe the fun that the kids will have. In fact, there will be so much fun to have that the kids will not want to leave the party. You will have to drag them away with the bounce house. But one of the great things for the parents is that the kids should be exhausted by the end of the day and there shouldn't be any problem getting them to sleep. But that is just a side benefit. Of course, you want to make sure that you rent a high quality bounce house for the party which means doing some research in the Cedar Rapids area. And we want to help you as much as we possibly can. In order to do so, we have developed this guide that should help you with the search and with identifying the perfect provider for your party.


If you have never conducted this kind of search before and there is a very good chance that you have not, you are probably wondering where to even begin with your search. We have a few suggestions. We still strongly believe in word of mouth referrals. So, start talking to your family, friends and coworkers. You never know, you might know someone who has rented a bounce house and had an exceptional experience. If you find this to be the case, this will be the start of your list of potential candidates to check out. Of course we would be remiss if we did not advise you to harness the power of the world wide web. Do a Google search for “bounce house providers in the Cedar Rapids area.” This search will no doubt provide you with a long list of potential providers. The best thing you can do is to start clicking on the links that you see in front of you and check out the quality of the website and look closely at the pictures of the bounce houses in their inventory. If any of the companies look like they are worth checking out, record their name on your list. When you are satisfied with the list that you have accumulated, call each one up and see if they have a bounce house that would be available for your birthday date. If they say they do, find a day and time you can talk about what they could possibly do for you and your party.


When you are sitting across from each candidate, you will want to have your pertinent questions at the ready. Start with something that must be taken very seriously. Are they licensed? It may be surprising, but many are not and you would be taking a huge chance to go with one who has not registered the proper paperwork. Remember, this is for your protection. Also, find out if the company is insured. Again, this will protect you and all of the kids in case an accident does occur. Find out how long they keep their rentals. You want to look for a company that updates their inventory quite often. In fact, ask if they will let you check out some of their inventory ahead of time. You are not going to be very happy if what shows up at your party is an old beat up dirty bounce house. Find out what kind of cleaning process their rentals go through. How much room will be needed for setup? Get down particulars like the time that the crew will need to be there to setup based on the time of your party. How much do they charge for the rental that you want? When you feel really good about a provider and their inventory, it will be time to get a contract and sign on the dotted line.
