San Diego Bounce House Hire

Frequently Asked Questions

If you don't find your answer here, it doesn't exist. Just kidding! Call us or send us a message with any other questions you may have.

What are your office hours?
We are open 10-6 everyday but our deliveries and pickups are not limited to these times. Need to get a hold of us during off-hours? Call us or send us a message here.

Are Bouncers safe?
Yes, we select only Bouncers that are designed with safety in mind. All of our bouncers are manufactured with lead-free, breathable, fire retardant materials and include safety netting and entry ramps. Each Bouncer is then secured to the ground with either stakes or sandbags. Additionally, our staff is trained and certified in setting up the unit in the safest possible manner. If you follow the safety rules provided, these units are considered very safe. All safety rules and guidelines will be reviewed with you prior to use.

Are your Bouncers clean?
We are glad you asked! We take great pride in providing a safe and clean play environment for your loved ones. We clean and sanitize our inflatables before and after each use. We use non-toxic, environmentally-friendly cleaners and disinfectants to ensure our equipment is as clean as possible!

Is electricity needed?
Yes, electricity is required to continuously power the blower fans. Most of the time, all that is needed is a standard household outlet within 75 feet of the Bouncer. Larger inflatables may require more outlets. We provide extension cords. In the event electricity is not available, or within 75 feet, we also rent generators!

How much power do the blower fans use? Will my electric bill go through the roof?
Our blower fans are very efficient. On average, our blowers use about 14 cents of electricity per hour. Thats about $1 per event!

What surfaces do you set up on?
We set up on grass, turf, asphalt, and concrete. Sorry, we do not set up on dirt, gravel, sand, rocks or bark of any kind (even if its temporarily covered).

How are inflatables secured/anchored to the ground?
To ensure safety, we anchor all of our inflatables. For live grass, we use 18" hook stakes that are driven into the soil. We ask that you please mark any irrigation or other underground pipes prior to setup. For setup areas where staking is not possible, we use sandbags to anchor the inflatables.

How much room will I need?
Depending on which unit you rent, the space will vary. Dimensions are listed in the item descriptions.

Do you deliver in our area?

Do you setup at Parks?
Yes, we sure do! Please note, there is a "Park Fee" for Park setups and most parks will require a permit. For additional information, click here.

What does the Park Fee include?
Park Fee includes a generator to power up to 2 inflatables (additional power extra), and covers priority delivery/pickup and additional administrative cost to coordinate with the Parks Departments.

Is setup and takedown included in the price?

Can I pay to have Tables and Chairs Set up, Organized and Taken down ?
Absolutely! We gladly offer a setup/strike service on all our Table & Chair rentals for a small fee.

Does equipment setup and take-down count against my "Event time?"
No, we will setup the equipment prior to your event start time (typically 30-90 minutes prior) and will pick it up no earlier than your event end time (unless requested by you).

What time do you deliver/pick up?
We strive to deliver and pickup as close to the event times set by you. However, we do require a 2-hour window for parks and up to 4 hours for residential before your event starts and after your event ends. Our delivery times range from 6am to 2 hours after sunset. Typical set-up and tear-down time is approximately 20-30 minutes. Times may change under special circumstances. We will email you the day before your event with the exact delivery and pickup times.

What if I need the equipment delivered/picked up at specific times?
For a small fee, We gladly offer a "Time-Sensitive Delivery/Pickup" option which allows you to set the exact times for drop-off and pickup.

Can I pickup the equipment from your warehouse?
No, sorry. We prefer to deliver all products, so we can setup in a manner that allows riders to play safely, and ensures the product will not be damaged. Our prices include delivery and setup.

What if it rains or there is bad weather?
Weather-related cancellations (by you or us) are 100% refundable. Weather-related cancellations can be made up to the day of the event. In the case of rain/high winds upon delivery, the setup crew will determine if it is safe to setup. You can also reschedule your event date (based on availability) at no cost. See our full cancellation policy at the bottom of this page.

What if I need to cancel for reasons other than weather?
If you cancel 7 days prior to the event date, you will be released of any commitment and will not be charged. Any cancellation within 7 days of event will result in a charge of 25% of total balance. See our full cancellation policy at the bottom of this page.

How far in advance do I need to order?
Rentals are made on a first come, first served, basis. We suggest 3-4 weeks prior to your event. If you do have last minute needs, call us, we will do our best to assist.

Yes! We pay all applicable taxes.
