One of the most overlooked aspects of starting an inflatable rental business is choosing the correct inflatables. The correct assortment is so important to your business's survival. Remember, you only make money when your rental fleet is rented so you need to focus on items that appeal to the masses.
It is appropriate at this time to review the type of inflatables that are available to purchase. All inflatables used for your inflatable rental business need to be made for Commercial use.

The main categories of inflatables are:
- Bounce Houses
- Bounce Houses with Slides (often called combo units)
- Inflatable Slides
- Water Slides
- Obstacle Courses (both toddler and adult size)
- Inflatable Sports Games (ranging from basketball to batting cages)
Obviously, as a start-up business or any business for that matter, you have budgets you need to adhere to. Since budgets are unique to the individual business, I will not begin to touch upon this subject. I will instead walk you through the priority process for adding inflatables.
Since your objective is to rent your units as often as possible, you need to select units that are most popular. From our experience, bounce houses rent the most often followed by combo units, water slides and slides, inflatable games, and then obstacle courses. Depending on your budget and how many units you wish to begin with will determine what types of units you would want.
