?Bouncy castle hire business - the rewards Hiring out a bouncy castle or another type of inflatable for children's or adult's parties can be a highly profitable and enjoyable business that won't take up much of your time, or cause you sleepless nights. As an example of the financial rewards that can be yours, if you were to operate only three bouncy castles on part time hire at weekends, with each bouncy castle going out at around 65 per day, you could bring in 390-400 per weekend, amounting to 1,690-1730 per month gross. With business expenses at around 200 per month, you could end up with a net profit of around 1,500 a month. And this is from just a few hours work a week. A part time business run from home Many successful bouncy castle hire businesses operate from home and are run by people doing full time jobs during the week. To run the business you only need to devote a few hours to it each week, and you won't need to make a huge financial investment to get things started. The bouncy castle business is ideal for home operation: you only need to be available to deliver and collect the bouncy castle at the end of the day, and have somewhere to store your deflated bouncy castles when they are not in use. But will there be enough demand to make the bouncy castle business worth while? Of course there are no guarantees in business, but keep in mind that children have birthdays every day of the year, and every year there are more and more children out there. Adults are pretty fond of bouncy castles too. Hire for parties in back gardens will be good in the summer and autumn, and in the winter and spring, hire for indoor parties, for example, in community halls, or church hall, will ensure that your bouncy castle business runs all year round. The truth is that competitors often find that demand for bouncy castle hire exceeds supply -- especially in the summer months. There is normally plenty of room for everyone to operate in a medium to large sized town, or city. In a busy area, you will even find rival companies passing over enquiries to each other when they are fully booked! You might even find that there are no competitor bouncy castle businesses operating in your area. A business that can grow Many bouncy castle hire businesses start out small, say, operating one or two bouncy castles, but then expand within a few years to operating and handful. Ten years later the business might be operating as many as twenty. However, remember that how big you grow is largely up to you. Stephen Turner 2006.
