We carry a $5,000,000 insurance policy
Safety is our number one priority and it should be your number one priority in choosing an inflatable company. We understand that you have many choices when it comes to selecting a rental company. We want you to be safe and enjoy your party whether you use our company or not. Of course we want your business and we strive on great customer service. You may find a guy on craigslist renting an inflatable for a ridiculous price. Just remember you get what you pay for. They are most likely not insured, not commercial units and who knows if they are cleaned before and after every rental like they should be. Our staff is trained on how to set-up and properly secure each rental item in our inventory. If the set-up is going to be on a hard surface you must let us know at time of booking so we can bring the proper weights to hold the item in place.
Our general manager was interviewed on bounce house safety by the Today show on 6/1/14. Here is the article posted on the Today's show website.
Dan Stuckey, the general manager of Jump and Jam, a safety certified bounce house company in Long Island, gave TODAY some tips on how to keep kids safe. "This wall of the bounce house, it's just like a kite or a sail,'' Stuckey told Rossen. "If it's not properly secured...wind will take it and just tip it right over. Kids will fall out and get hurt very seriously." Here are Stuckey's tips to avoid a bounce house disaster:Here are Stuckey's tips to avoid a bounce house disaster:
- Properly secure the house by using stakes that are at least 18 inches long, and hammer them all the way into the ground at a 45-degree angle.
- When the wind is higher than 20 miles per hour, which usually causes the tops of trees to start swaying, it is not safe to let children in the bounce house.
- Make sure you are not setting the house up near any power lines or near any water or pool.
- Make sure the ground is firm because sand or loose dirt could cause injuries and instability.
- If you are taking your child to a bounce house on someone else's property, check if there are any rips or tears in it, and make sure the straps where the anchor points are located are in good condition.
- If the house has a slide, make sure the ropes anchoring it aren't old or deteriorated.
- Read the rules and recommendations printed on the house before using.
