Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Does the price include set up and delivery?
A: No they do not, there is a delivery charge based on what city you are in and what you are renting. Most of the inflatables are to be picked up at 9719 S. Robert Trail, Inver Grove Heights MN 55077. Some of the larger units might not be able to be picked up and will require a delivery. I allow for a Friday pick up at no extra cost if the unit is not rented, and I am flexible on the drop of times for Sunday as well if not otherwise rented I allow for a late drop off.
Do you deliver to other cities?
A: Yes, but once again please be aware that due to rising gas prices and the possible need for an extra truck and labor that travel fees can be quite high. Please call our office for a current quote.
Q: When do you set up?
A: That depends on how many rentals we have that day. Generally we arrive 1-3 hours before the rental time begins. If we have a lot of rentals that day, we may need to set up as early as 4 hours in advance. If this is the case, we will call the Friday before to confirm that someone will be at the party location.
Q: WeÃƒÃ‚Â´ve rented some really dirty jumps from other companies in the past. Are they always that dirty?
A: No. The jump should be clean when you get it. Affordable Inflatables cleans and disinfects after every rental.
Q: Do we have to keep it plugged in the entire time?
A: Yes. A blower keeps air in the jump unit the entire time. Once unplugged they deflate. ThatÃƒÃ‚Â´s why we require an outlet within 50ÃƒÃ‚Â´ of the unit or a generator. Longer cords can pop your circuit breaker so we bring our own heavy duty cords.
Q: What about parks? Do parks have electricity?
A: We love setting up at parks but most parks do NOT have electricity. If you want to set up at a park, you must rent a generator. We rent generators at a resonable cost. Also, parks are first come, first serve so get your spot early in the day.
Q: What payments do you take?
A: Cash,Check or Credit Cards. If paying by cash, please have exact change as our drivers do not carry cash.
Q: What if we need to cancel?
A: Please check out our policies page for details.
Q: Do you require a deposit?
A: Yes all orders require a $50 Credit Card deposit. If you cancel this order, the $50 deposit will become Lifetime credit for any future rental.
Q: How big are the jumps?
A: Most of our jumps (all of our character jumps for example) are 15ÃƒÃ‚Â´x15ÃƒÃ‚Â´ which is a little bigger than many companies rent. Please note the space required for each jump (listed near the large picture) as some are VERY big and require extra space. When in doubt, measure your space to make sure it will fit. Jumps need room to be staked and they need room for the blower and canÃƒÃ‚Â´t rub against walls or trees as this may damage the jump. The sizes listed with each jump include the space needed for stakes etc. If you have stairs or a tiered backyard, please call our office to discuss options for setup.
Q: What about the big jumps? Any special requirements?
A: Check the requirements listed with each jump. Also, make sure you have at least a 4ÃƒÃ‚Â´ access to the area where it will be set up. The jumps can weigh up to 650 pounds so we need a clear path with ample room.
Q: What surfaces do you set up on?
A: We can set up on Grass (our favorite and best for the kids), dirt, asphalt, and concrete. Sorry, we canÃƒÃ‚Â´t set up on any type of rocks as the constant rubbing will wear through the vinyl jumps.
Q: Can we see a copy of your contract and safety rules?
A: Yes. There is a link in your receipt once you've ordered or you may contact our office.
Q: Are we responsible for the unit if it gets a tear or damaged in any way?
A: Yes and no. You are not responsible for normal wear and tear on our units. Seams may develop tears in high traffic areas over a period of time. If this happens please alert us at once so we can remedy the situation. If however, damage occurs due to failure to follow our safety rules or negligence you will be responsible for any repair or replacement of the inflatables.
Q. What is your rain policy
A. If the weather is not cooperating on the day of your reservation we will be happy to work with you to reschedule your reservation with no cost or penalty. As a safety precaution, if it is actively thunder storming we will not deliver or setup the unit. Once the unit is set up we will be unable to provide any reimbursement or refund for bad weather, as we still have to pay our staff regaurdless if you use it or not and we will also need to dry and clean them. We will work with you the day of your rental if threatening weather is present or approaching.
