Are you considering bounce house rental? If so, you should consider buying a bounce house as well. It can sometimes be a difficult decision to choose between buying or renting and there are many things that you should take into consideration. Factors such as price, hassle, maintenance and time frame all come into play with your decision. In order to help you make the right decision for you and your family, we have created the following questions.
- Why are you considering bounce house rental? Is it for a one-time party or event or will the event happen many times? If the event will happen many times, when and how often will it happen?
- What does it cost to rent? What will it cost to buy? When you look at both costs, does it make more sense to buy or rent?
- What ages are your kids, close family and friends? How much longer will they all be able to use a bounce house?
- Do you think you could resell it when you are done with it? If you live in a metropolitan area, you will most likely be able to sell it later as long as it is in good condition.
- Does your family currently enjoy doing similar activities? Would your family enjoy owning one?
Take some time to answer all of the above questions and write down your answers. If you only need it once, renting one is probably a better option. However, if you envision using it many times, buying one will make more sense.
Based on your answers to the questions above, if it looks like buying one makes more sense, do some bounce house rentals Lakeland FL to see how much they cost. Then, find some local bounce house rental companies and call them. Ask them how much it costs to rent one. Be sure to ask about the overall cost of renting, including delivery, set up and the time frame, as they can be very different for each company. Next, go back online to see if there is a good resale market in your area, so that you can sell it once your kids are too big for it. Finally, gather up all of the information you have and do a quick cost comparison to evaluate the overall price difference between buying and renting.
Usually, the cost comparison shows that it makes more sense to buy. However, if the cost comparison numbers are close, considering your family’s needs and desires can help you make the decision. In fact, even if the comparison shows that renting is a better decision, when you factor in all the years your family can enjoy it, buying one may still be a better decision.
