Useful Tips - How to store your inflatables properly

Useful Tips - How to store your inflatables properly

Bounce houses and blowers need to be stored in a thick and durable bag that will protect it from dirt, dust, and bugs and keep it secure while being transported from one place to another.

Additionally, it is important to store the bounce house and blower in either your garage, shed, basement or any other place that will protect the bounce house and blower from the elements and keep it from water and heat.

Here comes the questions - How do I Fold a Bounce House to Fit in That Small Bag?
This does not have to be one of those frustrating purchases that never folds back down into its original form, however it does take some consideration to make sure all the air is out and that it stays folded tightly and compact. Below are some steps to help you visualize how to best fold and roll a basic bounce house for storage.
1. Deflate the bounce house so that most of the air is out. Once it is generally flattened, fold in all the tubes and slides that stick out so that it takes the general shape of a square or rectangle.
2. Depending upon the size of your storage bag, fold the large rectangle in either thirds or halves to reach the desired height. As you fold, tuck in any sides or netting that may come out of the sides. At this point, you should have one long strip or rectangular shape.
3.  Recruit someone to help with this next part. With you on one end of the rectangle, slowly squeezing and rolling the end as tightly as possible, have your helper roll right in front of you to get all the air out of inflatable parts ahead.
Keep rolling until it is a tightly rolled burrito-shape and lift into the bag.

How do I roll an inflatable?

You've successfully used your inflatable, but now it's time to roll it back up. What's the best way to roll up your inflatable? While everyone has their own slightly different method, we present here the standard method of rolling an inflatable.

1. Deflate the inflatable, and make sure all deflation zippers are open to allow air to escape.

2. Begin by folding the inflatable into even thirds or quarters (the final width should be as wide as your storage bag).

3. Once you have the inflatable folded into a manageable thirds or quarters, begin rolling the inflatable towards the open deflation zipper.

4. As you roll the inflatable, continue to depress the air out in front of the roll to assure a tight, even roll.

5. Secure the rolled inflatable in its protective vinyl storage bag.

How long does Omega Inflatables take to ship

How long does Omega Inflatables take to ship

There are three commonly used modes of transportation in international trade: sea, air, and rail.

If one or two bounce houses, we can only ship by air, it takes around 7-10 days, as we all know, the commercial inflatables are heavy duty, so the shipping cost is really expensive, often close to the value of the units, we generally do not suggest shipping by air, but if you need units urgently and can accept the high shipping cost, we will arrange air shipping for you.

The most common and cheapest way is to get multiple inflatables for sale and ship by sea, which will help you save cost, sea shipping takes around 20-45 days(depends on your location). If sea shipping, we recommend ordering inflatables at least 3-4 pieces( amount over $4000).

Here is the shipping process:

1. The Water Slides/Bounce Houses will be delivered to our shipping broker in Guangzhou.

2. Our shipping broker books shipment and deal with papers works.
Meanwhile, the broker on your end will contact you for paper works(they will help you throughout the whole import process).

3. Get the shipping papers and wait for a period of time.

4. When the ship arrives, the broker will notify you and send you a bill: duties and port charges(show us the bill and we will check and avoid overcharge).

5. Pay off the bill and pick up your commercial inflatables(we have insurance for the your order, if there is any damage on the packages, take detailed pictures and we will claim against the damage.

The sea shipping process is simple, all you need to do is the Steps 2 and Step 5. Then you will save costs and make profits.

Omega Inflatables Shipping Cost

Omega Inflatables Shipping Cost

A lot of customers are curious about Omega inflatable shipping costs, now let's explain to you.

There are three methods to ship commercial inflatables, by air/express/sea.

Shipping by express or air takes around 7-10 days.
For example, if you order two regular bounce houses, we can only ship by express/air, the shipping cost is close to the inflatables' price, our inflatables are commercial grade and heavy-duty, so it's expensive to ship by express or by air, we don't recommend them.

But the most common and cheapest way is to get multiple units and ship by sea, which will help you save cost, sea shipping takes around 20-45 days(depends on your location). If sea shipping, we recommend ordering over $4000, around 3-4 units.

Because freight and port fees consist of two kinds.
Some fees are charged by bill, so no matter how many units you buy, you will get charged once. (you are going to save this kind of charge if you get multiple units.)
And some fees are charged by the dimensions of packages, so the more you buy the more you pay.

Here is an example of 5 bounce houses shipped by sea to Houston, USA.
- Cost of 5 bounce houses: $704 x 5 = $3520
- Freight: $800
- Port charges and duties on arrival:  around $800
- Final total is around $5120

Please keep in mind, that freight varies according to your location and the weight of the items ordered.
If you get a list of what inflatables you want to order, please contact the sales to check the exact shipping cost.

What kind of inflatable business is right for me?

What kind of inflatable business is right for me?

The inflatable business is now not just for backyard rental, there are some main business segments, we hope this article it helps you make your decision and operate a successful business.

What kinds of businesses can I choose from?

Here are four categories:

Backyard Rental Company:
These are the operations that handle birthday parties and the like, typically in a customer's backyard. This type of business can be money-spinning, but it is generally a smaller “weekend business” provides a secondary income for yourself. These companies typically purchase small, easy-to-operate bounce houses, combos and smalle slides.

Interactive Inflatable Rental Company:
These companies are not only for birthday parties and now rent inflatable units for corporate picnics, churches, schools and so on. Many companies start off as an above-mentioned backyard rental company and expand to larger inflatable units such as big slides, obstacle courses, and games. This can be a full-time operation.

Pay-for-Play Event Company:
This is generally more of a carnival business, instead of renting out inflatable units for a set amount of money, these companies provide for local and regional events and set up a large eye-catching inflatables then people are willing to purchase tickets to experience.

Indoor Inflatable Play Center:
This operation features a large indoor space filled with inflatable units and other attractive items. Owners typically provide either to scheduled parties or are open to the public during a set period of time each day.


To be honest, this depends on what you’re looking for. Are you looking to just make a little extra money on the side? A backyard rental business is probably good for you, costs (such as gas, insurance, and repairs) are not excessive, and you can usually make a small but steady profit during the year. But what if you already have a backyard business and want to expand?

If you want to provide service to schools, corporations, churches etc. can be stressful, as can operating the larger inflatable units it necessitates. It will definitely force you to grow your operation into more of a full-time business, this means new equipment, more staff, some advertising and marketing efforts, as well as all the other headaches that go with owning your own business. But there is more profits, as well as all the other benefits that go with owning your own business!
