Please read the terms and conditions of hire below which sets out the terms of hire as well as important rules to ensure that the bouncy castles are used safely.
THE HIRE PERIOD:
The hire period is for a specified number of hours during the course of 1 day (i.e. am delivery/pm collection) as selected by you when making the booking. If you require the inflatable late into the night, you may specify this at the time of your booking and we are happy to accommodate for an additional charge .
We do not allow inflatables to be located outside between November 1st and April 1st due to adverse weather conditions.
Payment of 50% of the hire fee is required 7 days prior to the event. The deposit can be paid by Bank Transfer or by cheque. The remaining 50% should be paid by cash on delivery of the bouncy castle and prior to set up.
DELIVERY & ACCESS:
Please ensure access to the location where you would like the inflatable set up allows us to bring a trolley through & has 3 feet (90cm) clearance. Also that the area is clear as well as free of litter, rubbish and animal foul. We must be able to get a vehicle within 25 metres of the location of the inflatable.
If the inflatable is to be set up inside a hall or venue, there must be suitable parking for a large van (i.e. legal on-road parking or a car park without height restrictions).
If you require the inflatable to be taken up any steps or steep slopes, please advise in advance as additional man-power may be required for larger items for which there may be an additional charge.
The person who has booked the inflatable must be present to take delivery at the agreed time. Where our delivery team arrives at an address/venue and this person is not present, they will wait for a period of 15 minutes whilst attempting to make contact using the telephone numbers provided at the time of booking.
If you are in any doubt as to the suitability of your location or gaining access, please contact us to discuss.
Unless otherwise advised we will presume that the inflatable will be running off mains power supply & within 20 metres of a plug socket.
In the event of adverse weather conditions such as rain or strong winds, we reserve the right to cancel the booking to maintain the safety of the users & the general public. In such an event we will not charge you the remaining balance for your booking.
Unless you have selected one of our bouncy castles reserved specifically for indoor use, we cannot guarantee that the item will be dry when delivered to you. Any wetness will dry once the unit is inflated and in normal conditions will be dry within an hour. If we are aware that your chosen unit is wet prior to delivery we will endeavour to give you advance notice and where possible offer an earlier delivery to allow for drying time.
You may cancel your booking up to seven days prior to the date of hire by advising us in writing via email to firstname.lastname@example.org without having to pay anything further. If you wish to cancel within seven days of the hire date, the full balance of the hire will be payable.

9 – If the inflatable is not being used for any period of time, please switch the blower off at the mains.
10 – Do not allow anyone to bounce on the front safety step as a child could easily bounce off the inflatable and get hurt. The step is there to assist users in getting on and off!

17 – In the unlikely event that the blower stops working, please ensure that all users get off of the inflatable immediately.
18 – In the event that the inflatable loses pressure, check that the tube has not become detached from the blower or that something has blown onto and is obstructing the blower. If you are unable to restart the blower, please inform us straight away.
