How much room do I need?
Approximately an 18' x 18' area should be plenty of room for a bounce house. The area should be level, free of rocks, dirt, sand, sticks etc. and any in ground sprinkler systems should be shut off and not protruding. The unit must be within 50 feet of an outlet. We also ask that you please clean up the area in which the funhouse or slide is to be placed.

Who sets up the inflatable?
We set up the bouncy and take it down when we come to pick it up. Set up time is approximately 15-20 minutes. We ask that if you are done with the bouncy please do not shut down the blower. The bouncy unit must be inflated before it is taken down so that we can inspect and possibly do a preliminary cleaning of the unit. Pick up time is usually 20-30 minutes

How does the inflatable unit stay inflated?
We setup the unit and inflate the bounce with a fully enclosed blower motor unit that must stay on the entire time that the inflatable unit is being used (unless winds exceed 20mph, then it must be shut down). The design of the blower is such that no moving parts are exposed. This is a very important safety feature that you should take into account when children are around. The blower unit must be located within 50 feet of an electrical outlet.

Can I cancel my reservation?
We realize that things come up unexpectedly, so yes you can cancel your rental. But we do ask that you try to give at least a one week (7 days) notice of your cancellation. No refunds will be given once the inflatable has been setup.

Do you require a deposit?
Yes, just a $50.00 deposit holds your date. If you cancel your rental the $50.00 can be applied to your next rental. With a short season dates fill up quickly, so contact us today to reserve your date.

What is your weather policy?

AN INFLATABLE MUST NOT BE USED WHEN WET INSIDE and/or WHEN WINDS ARE 20 MPH OR MORE. This is a very important safety issue.

Wind – If the local weather is forecasted sustained winds of 15-20+ mph (with higher gusts) on your event day and both you and Bounce Around VT agree before delivery/set up that it may be unsafe to use then we will cancel the rental and your deposit can be applied to a future rental. We reserve the right to cancel your rental

Rain – If the local weather is forecasted 70% or higher chance of rain, we reserve the right to cancel your rental. An inflatable should not be used when raining or wet. If the inside of the bounce unit gets wet everyone should exit the bounce. When a bouncy unit becomes wet, it is very slippery and dangerous. Once the rain stops you can then dry the unit with towels. Once dry, the bounce should be once again safe to use.

* Note – We may cancel the rental the day prior or the morning of delivery if there’s a 70% or higher chance of rain and/or 15-20+ mph sustained winds (with higher gusts). In this case, we will contact you the day prior or morning of your event to discuss any weather related issues. Feel free to also contact us with any weather policy questions.

** Please call us at (802) 527-5725 if you have weather related questions once your unit has been setup. No refunds will be given once the inflatable has been setup.

Can a bouncy be set up indoors?
Yes, our units can be set up inside or outside! You will need to have enough ceiling height (about 18’) to accommodate the inflatable. The bouncy must not be too near hot lights, a/c vents or any fire hazard. Many commercial halls, malls, gyms, etc. will do just fine.

Can I set up the inflatable near my pool?
Safety is our number one concern. The bouncy must be set up a safe distance away from a pool or water front; at least 30 feet.

Why can't I pick up the bouncer and/or slide and set it up myself to cut costs?
Safety is our number one concern. Some companies may allow the homeowner to pick up & set up inflatable units, we do not feel that it is a good idea. Our set up personnel will evaluate the set up area, use the correct size & type of power cords and makes the all-important connections between the blower & inflatable. We also use proper straps and spikes/anchors to secure the inflatable to the ground and clean the inflatable prior to you using it (if needed). Also, each unit weighs approximately 200+ pounds, so injury to you is also our concern.

Are your inflatables clean?

Yes! Cleanliness is part of safety! We clean our inflatables every week. We vacuum, spray and wipe/scrub using a high quality cleaner/disinfectant.

How safe are your inflatables?
Our inflatables are constructed with quality and safety in mind! All of our units have the “child safety ramp/step” for safe & easy entry/exit; they are constructed from very durable commercial grade vinyl with double and quadruple stitching. ALL of our inflatables meet and/or exceed ATSM rental industry standards. Each of our inflatables is equipped with a non-removable list of rules. We will also supply recommended guidelines for safe use and recommended number of children that should be allowed to use the unit at one time. Beware of low-grade, unsafe inflatables and sub-standard rental operators! All rental inflatables SHOULD meet ATSM standards.

Do you accept credit cards? Yes, we take all major credit cards.
