Business name and license – Obtain a business license once you have come up with a proper name for your jumper rental business. Also, location must be determined. You might want to have a home office and store inflatables in your garage to keep your costs low for the time being. If you are opening up a business location make sure you have the proper permits and licenses.
Research the competition – Gather information on the jumper rental businesses around. Get familiar with the products they rent, and their pricing information. If they have a website, social media pages, and/or google business pages, you will need to have them too. In addition, it’s a good idea to find out what areas your competitors deliver to and what they charge for their deliveries.
Set up operations – Now is the time to set up your phone lines, bank accounts, business cards, website, and rental agreements. In addition, make sure that you have the transportation aspect of the business covered in order to move the equipment. Obtaining insurance is a good idea as well. Make sure to communicate effectively with your prospective customers,. This is what will separate you from your competitors.
Inventory – Try to get the most for your money without getting the jumpers that are cheap but will not last long. In addition, make sure you are getting a warranty on the units you are purchasing. As you purchase more inflatable jumpers, have them added to your website. As you are picking the units that you want to purchase, pick the ones that will attract the crowd (color, shape and theme).
