There are thousands of people in the UK that are looking for a way to earn more money without having to invest a lot of money initially. Many have turned to the party industry to form a part-time company as this is an industry that has remained stable during hard financial times. Furthermore, as parties are generally hosted outside ‘normal’ working hours managing a company alongside a full-time job is an option.
Many people have ventured into buying used bouncy castles for sale and renting them out once they own them. It may be surprising, but the inflatable rental industry has remained popular during the recession, and if anything bouncy castle sales in the UK have actually increased since 2009.
Second hand bouncy castles?
Second hand bouncy castles offer a fantastic business opportunity because purchase prices are actually lower than many think. In fact, you can start your own inflatable business for just a few hundred pounds. One of the reasons why used bouncy castles for sale have remained stable during the recession is because the rental yield is astonishing. You can buy a decent-sized bouncy castle for less than £500 and earn that initial investment back in just a few jobs. This is something that is impossible in most other industries.
The best thing about buying and renting out commercial bouncy castles is that because the rental rates are favourable, expanding the company is not as hard as it is in other industries. Many people find that word of mouth advertisement is enough, but marketing can put you above your competition. Once you know where to buy bouncy castles and you have a list of people that are interested in potentially renting from you, what you tend to find is that expansion actually comes very naturally. By purchasing additional second hand bouncy castles you have more of a catalogue to offer potential customers.
Starting your own bouncy castle business is a viable option. However, be sure that you have the energy to start a company alongside a full time role, and that you understand how to run a business before you decide to invest any time in this venture.
