It’s always a good time to make sure your bases are covered when it comes to safety.
Nothing is more important to us than your guests enjoying your party safely. More Than Moonwalks provide some safety guidelines for inflatables so everything goes smoothly during your celebration, here are some additional advice for while you’re vetting inflatables rental providers.
If something unexpected happens and someone gets hurt or property gets damaged, you or your company may be liable for those damages. Make sure your inflatables provider carries an appropriate liability insurance policy so compensation for any incidents or mishaps can be claimed against that policy – otherwise you might find yourself at risk, or even in legal jeopardy. Every year a few poorly-secured bounce houses blow across parking lots or up into the air. Not only do wayward inflatables pose a risk of physical harm to children and property, both children and adults can suffer emotional “pain and suffering.” There’s almost no limit to how much damage a single accident might cause, and if there isn’t an insurance policy to fall back on, individuals could end up being sued for damages – and that means you. Organizers should make sure their inflatables rental provider carries insurance, while companies should run that insurance information past their legal advisor to determine if they need additional liability coverage.
Do Business with a Business
Your moonwalks and inflatables rental company should be a company. While Cousin Bob might have four bounce houses and a couple of generators, unless he’s a licensed electrical contractor he probably won’t know to check that the power draw is properly balanced so you don’t blow a breaker (or cause a power outage). Doing business with a business means you can have some assurance that your rental company approaches its work professionally, and takes its responsibilities to its customers seriously. Be sure your moonwalks rental company has a business license issued by the secretary of state in your state, and any contractors it will use while working for you are licensed and insured, too.
