How far in advance can I reserve
my Bounce House or any other rental item?
The earlier you
can make your reservation the better your chance at getting
the date you want. We appreciate as much advance notice as
possible, but we will always try to work with you even if
you event is a last minute request.
How long is the rental period?
All of our
rentals are "all day" rentals, so there is NO set time
limit, which means that a unit will be delivered and setup
generally between 8am and 1pm based on the best delivery
schedule for all customers that day, and will be taken down
generally between 5pm and 9pm, based once again on
customers' party schedules and locations. Since we have
multiple units to deliver and pick up, that means that
someone may have an inflatable delivered much earlier than
1pm and someone may have an inflatable picked up much later
than 8pm. We are always willing to work with our customers
and do our best to make everyone happy. If you need the
bounce house at 7am, or if your party doesn't start until
7pm, WE WILL WORK WITH YOU.
What is the Nebraska Bounce
policy on inclement weather?
If the weather is
not cooperating on the day of your reservation we will be
happy to work with you to reschedule your reservation with
no cost or penalty. As a precaution, if it is actively
raining, more than a slight sprinkle, the wind is more than
20 m.p.h. , or it is below 40 degrees we will not deliver or
set up the unit. If the unit is set up and it begins to rain
we will be unable to provide any reimbursement or refund for
bad weather. We will work with you the day of your rental if
threatening weather is present or approaching.
What should I expect on the day
of my party? How does the process work?
We will deliver
and set up the unit at least 1 hour prior to the start of
your rental period. The person that is responsible for the
rental must be available at the delivery location. At the
time of setup we will review the rental agreement, and go
over any questions regarding safety, proper use, and any
other concerns you wish to discuss.
Where can I have the bounce
A bounce house
can be set up in many different places on your property. The
surface must be mostly flat and relatively firm. Although we
prefer to setup on grass since that is the safest surface,
we can set up on concrete, asphalt and smooth gravel as
well, however we do need to know the surface type prior to
the event date. We will anchor the unit either by driving
stakes into the ground or by using sandbags where stakes
cannot be used. We will come prepared for placement on grass
and that we are able to place stakes in the ground. If
placement will be on concrete, asphalt or gravel we must be
notified at least 48 hours in advance. The placement area
must be free of overhead power lines and tree limbs.
How safe are your bounce houses?
Our bounce houses
and inflatables are clean and well maintained. It will be
necessary for an adult to be in direct supervision of
inflatables at all times. By following basic safety rules
all children will be safe and have a great time. If you need
someone to stay with the unit to supervise the play on the
inflatable, Nebraska Bounce can provide an attendant for an
Do I need an attendant?
ALWAYS be someone supervising any inflatable. The most
important duties of an attendant are limiting the number of
children in or on the inflatable at one time, making sure
that the children are all of similar size and controlling
the behavior of all participants. Nebraska Bounce can
provide an attendant for an additional fee.
How many kids can you have in a
bounce house at a time?
Usually up to 8
kids but it depends on their size. The best way to keep the
bounce houses safe is to separate the smaller kids from the
bigger kids. We will go over safety guidelines when we
deliver the inflatable. If you have questions prior to your
rental date please feel free to call us.
Is a deposit required to reserve
Can I use an inflatable at a
will need to reserve the area and get a park permit if
required. We will be glad to work with the park regarding a
certificate of insurance from Nebraska Bounce. If there are
any additional fees for placing a bounce house in the park,
you will be responsible for making payment directly to the
park. You will want to ask two questions of the park: Is
there a dedicated 20 amp circuit available for powering the
bounce house? If not, we do have generators available for
rental. The next to ask is if we are able to place stakes in
the ground to secure the bounce house. If not we can use
sand bags, but we will need to know in advance to bring them
for your delivery.
What if the inflatable is
damaged during my event?
If there is a
defect in the inflatable there will be no charge. Depending
on the situation if the inflatable is damaged due to a
preventable circumstance (i.e. dog chewed on it, someone cut
it with a knife, or sharp object on clothes or SILLY
STRING), then a repair fee will be incurred.
Are there any cleaning fees?
We expect to
receive our inflatables back in a fairly clean condition. We
realize that children in and out of it all day, can allow
grass to enter by means of their socks. We will not charge
for cleaning this. However since you will receive a list of
general rules at the time of setup, any food, drink stains
or not following any other listed rule of this nature will
result in a minimum $35.00 clean up fee at the time of
pickup. The inflatable will be inspected before it is picked
up at your location.
Can water be placed on a bounce
house or other inflatable?
inflatables are not made for water play. It is not safe to
play on them and it does damage to the inflatable. The only
exception to this are our specific water rental units.. If
water is placed on any unit other than our specific water
units, a fee of at least $100.00 will be charged. Damage
costs may include, but are not limited to, the cost of
cleaning and drying the unit, material damage, and any
rental fee due to any missed rentals. Do not use water
unless specifically approved in advance.
Do you have insurance?
Bounce is fully insured as required by the state of Nebraska
for general liability coverage. We are only responsible for
our own negligence; not yours. This statement in no way
implies legal responsibility. In reserving your bounce house
you will be required to sign a rental agreement and "hold
harmless" agreement that lists specific terms and conditions
of the rental.
What do we do if the inflatable
is up and it begins to rain?
Unplug the blower
and move it out of the rain while you let the inflatable
deflate. Once rain stops, plug the blower back in and wipe
down any wet surfaces to avoid slipping. The vinyl gets very
slippery when wet. The kids may resume play if the vinyl is
no longer wet and slippery.
What methods of payment do you
accept for rental items?
accept cash, money orders, and all major credit cards.
What are the power requirements
responsible for power. Nebraska Bounce is NOT liable for
problems due to power issues. Typically we need 1 dedicated
20 amp circuit for each blower. Other items can not be
plugged into the same circuit. We furnish one 50 ft.
extensions cord per blower unit. Unit needs to be placed
within 50 ft. of the power source. Generators may be rented
in advance if a power source is not available. No refunds
will be provided if adequate power is not available on day
of the event.
