Inflatable Repair Customer Writes:

We get a lot of messages that go something like this:  "I have a ___________ and it needs repairs.  How much do you charge?"

 

Bouncer Repair Answer:

A lot of factors go into determining the cost of a repair.  If you send the following information, we can send you an estimate of what we think the repair will cost.  The more information you provide, the more accurate the estimate:

 

  1. In what city and state is the inflatable currently located?
  2. Are you planning to dropoff the inflatable at our shop (Denver or Littleton Colorado) or ship the inflatable to us?
  3. What type of item do you need repaired (bounce house, slide, obstacle course, etc)?
  4. Is your inflatable commercial or residential grade?
  5. Do you know the manufacturer of the inflatable?
  6. Do you know the age of the inflatable?
  7. If shipping the inflatable to us, what is the approximate size and weight of the inflatable when rolled up? 
  8. What kind of damage does the inflatable have?
  9. Where specifically is the damage located on the inflatable?
  10. Can you send us pictures of the damaged area?

 

Please keep in mind that it rarely makes sense to make professional repairs to a residential grade inflatable.  We have a number of articles in our FAQ and Knowledge Base addressing this issue.  This article is a good one about how to tell if your residential grade inflatable is nearing the end of it's life, or try this one for general information about patching an inflatable.

 

Also read this article if you are unable to dropoff the inflatable in Denver or Littleton Colorado.

 

For a description of the damage, more detail is better.

 

When it comes to sending pictures, please give us an idea of what we're looking at.  A single picture of a tear in vinyl at close range is hard to estimate from.  Start with a close picture of the damaged area, then step back and take a new picture every 5 or 10 steps until you can see the whole inflatable.  This gives us an idea of what we're trying to repair, and where the damage is relative to the whole inflatable.  The location of the damage is a major factor in the cost of the repair.

 

Repairs rarely cost less than $200.  Most repairs cost $300 to $500 before shipping is factored in.  Some repairs are in extremely difficult locations and the cost may be significant.  The more information you give us, the more accurate our estimate will be.
