Frequently Asked Questions
WHEN DO YOU DELIVER?
Deliveries are made from around 9.00am to 1.00pm. Collections are made from 6.00pm. In the busy summer months we deliver and collect on a geographical round basis, we do try to be as flexible as possible. If you require specific delivery times please inform us at the time of your booking. We accommodate exact delivery and collection times for indoor hall parties or if you are organising a school fete.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO PRIOR TO YOUR ARRIVAL?
Our inflatables are delivered on a sack barrow and we need adequate clear access for this (approximately 3ft depending on the inflatable ordered). Please ensure the paths or access to your garden are free from obstacles, we will need access to mains power electricity with 20 metres of where you would like the unit sited. Please prepare the site prior to our arrival. In the summer months we run to a tight schedule to ensure all our customers are delivered to and collected from on time. Our delivery staff may not be able to wait whilst the access and/or site is cleared and prepared.
ON WHAT SURFACE CAN THE INFLATABLE BE SET UP ON
We can use any hard surface, such as patio, concrete, tarmac, rubber, and artificial grass, and heavy weighted sand bags are used for all areas as mentioned above to secure the inflatables to the surface. And of course grass and soft ground, Soft surfaces are staked to the ground, and for safety reasons any inflatable outdoors must be sited on reasonably flat surfaces. The site area needs to be free from stones, sharp objects such as washing line pole sockets, dog mess and excessive mud. If there are any overhanging trees or bushes encroaching on the site area of the inflatable, these will need to be pruned back prior to our arrival. The unit cannot be sited where any side of it is brushing up against bushes, trees, fences etc….Barbecues must not be sited within 5 metres of the inflatable.

IF I NEED TO CLEAN THE CASTLE WHAT CAN I USE?
Our inflatables are thoroughly checked and cleaned prior to every hire. If it is necessary to clean any spoiling prior to us collecting at the end of your hire then only hot soapy water (fairly liquid) can be used to clean the castle. Chemical cleaning agents must not be used. It is important to clean any marks quickly. Face paints for example, must be cleaned off immediately whilst it is still wet, if not the face paint will permanently stain the castle.
