The equipment must be in a clean manor to a similar cleanliness as when it was set up by our staff. If the equipment is dirty with confetti, face paint, food/drinks or large amounts of grass you will be charged a cleaning fee of up to £50. for out side hire we understand that not all grass can be removed but please be mindful and give it a quick wipe off. If the inflatable is hired to a garden and it does rain, you MUST keep the inflatable inflated, if this has been left down in the rain you will be charge a drying cost of up to £35. Soft play out side MUST be kept dry again if it rains take the soft play inside to keep dry.

Q: How long does it take to set up/pack away inflatables?A: Please allow 15 - 30 minutes for the setup and pack away of our equipment. Depending on what castles and packages have been hired

Q: How much space is required?A: This depends on each individual Bouncy Castle, please see description or if unsure please call and we will be happy to help. we can not be held liable

Q: Do you have insurance cover?A: Yes. We have £5 million public liability insurance. Most Council run venues will insist on this, copies of our insurance certificates are available on request.

Q: Can castles be set up on concrete/gravel?A: Unfortunately, inflatables cannot be set up on concrete as we are unable to anchor them securely. Grass or large indoor space is suitable for our bouncy castles as this way we can ensure they are correctly and safely secured. HSE has stated that we would require 163kg of weight per anchor point to secure the castle if not using stakes when outdoors. This is too much weight for us to carry around on our vans as we would need 163x6 (minimum) anchor points, so over a ton in weight! We secure the inflatables down with heavy duty stakes, so we need a grass area to put them on. However, if you have path area (which is flush to the grass) with grass either side we would be about to put in on there as long as we can get the anchor points staked down securely. Please discuss this with us at time of booking.

NB. We will not put inflatables on soil/mud or sand either!

Q: How far in advance should I book?A: We recommend that you book as far in advance for your event/party as you can to ensure we have castles available and avoid disappointment. We are able to take last minute bookings right up until the day of your event, please feel free to call to discuss availability.

Q: What is included in the price?A: All of our bouncy castles/bouncy castle combo slides come with safety mats, extension lead, blower, ground stakes or sandbags for indoor venues. Our experienced team will set up the inflatable for you and we will run through how to use the equipment correctly and safely in order for you to maximize your enjoyment.

Q: What if it rains?

A: We are happy to set up in the Rain

Q: Does wind affect my Bouncy Castle hire?A: If winds are forecast at 24mph (including Gusts) or more then we will not erect any castle, this is due to safety. It is not safe for a castle to be put up in high winds, therefore, the hire would be cancelled Due to safety law EN14960 and HSE

Q: What is a PIPA/RPII certificate?A: Each Bouncy Castle MUST have an annual test to certify it is safe to use, they come in different forms including PIPA, RPII. The benefits of PIPA tags and certificates are that the inflatable unit and its details are recorded on a national database accessible to anyone by visiting www.pipa.org.uk. The certificate and tag will match the unique reference number so that the client can always check the compliance of the product in meeting the EN14960 standard.
