How much does a bounce house cost?
Bounce Houses (a.k.a. moonwalks) vary from manufacturers. They may use different materials, some
may use a ‘cheaper’ vinyl (often thinner). They might not double stitch stress points. They
could also charge extra for add-ons to the inflatable unit, such as a vinyl
roof, which prevents sun exposure which could lead to hot vinyl and burns. They
might not include a front step which is highly recommended safety feature so that children can
easily access the door or not “fall out” of the unit directly onto the ground. A
zipper is another nice amenity for deflation, drying of the unit, and checking
for worn vinyl or weak seams. Less price could mean less useable life in a unit.
Please research your equipment before your final purchase.
The author of this website hopes that you've probably already done some research and know that sizes and prices vary.
You'll find that a typical 15 x 15 unit can be purchased for $1595
and $200 shipping. Yes, you could probably could find a less expensive
inflatable, but I am in a belief that you get what you pay for and
quality and longevity will reign in the end.
Also consider warranty of your inflatables, they vary greatly.
One year to three years. Some will NOT
pay shipping even if your inflatable has a seam rip only after a few
rentals (which should be considered a manufacturing
defect). Some will pay only return shipping. And yet
some inflatable manufacturers have worked out agreements with repair
companies through the country and you might be able to bring (or
ship) it to a "closer" repair location. Warning: Shipping
can be expensive!!!!!!!!!!
