Frequently Asked Question

 

How far in advance should I make my reservations?

Please make your reservations as soon as possible. All of our inflatable moonwalks, waterslides, and interactives are quite popular and sometimes we are booked weeks and even months in advance. The sooner you call, the more likely you are to be able to obtain the exact item you want

 

How much room do I need?

Approximately a 20' by 20' area should be plenty of room for the typical moonwalk and a 20' by 40' area for most of the slides. The area should be level, free of rocks, sticks, etc. and any in ground sprinkler systems should be shut off and not sticking up. The unit must be within 60 feet of an electrical outlet. The inflatables can also be used indoors. Please specify which surface the inflatable is to be set up on, so that we can provide the appropriate anchors. Please clean and clear the area for the inflatable prior to our arrival time.

 

Who sets up the inflatable?

We set up the bounce or slide and take it down when we come to pick it up. This is done to ensure your safety and the safety of the equipment. Set up time is approximately 15-20 minutes for the bounces and 20-25 minutes for the slide. We ask that if you are done with the bounce or slide please DO NOT shut down the blower. The bounce or slide must be inflated before it is taken down so that we can inspect and possibly do a preliminary cleaning of the unit. We ask that if you use the slide as a water slide that you turn off the water and empty the pool one hour before we arrive, but leave the unit inflated, so that it may be dry when we pick it up. This hour will not be included in your rental time.

What time do you deliver and pick up the inflatable?

You decide on the specific rental time and we will be there anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours before that for set up. You do not pay for set up or take down time. Your rental period is for a day, typically 8 hours. We like to guarantee at least 6. Additional hours and overnight set ups are available for a minimal additional charge. We pick up the unit after the party is over, but please allow up to 3 hours for pick up. If an exact delivery or pick up time is needed, such as for a surprise party, just let us know. We will be more than happy to make any arrangements that you may need. >

 

How does the inflatable unit stay inflated?

We setup the unit and inflate the bounce or slide with a fully enclosed blower motor that must stay on the entire time that the inflatable unit is being used (unless winds exceed 25 mph or it starts to rain, in which case the motor must be shut down). There are no moving parts exposed on the blower unit, which is a very important safety feature when there are children around. The blower unit must be located within 60 feet of an electrical outlet or accomodations for a generator must be made.

 

Can I cancel my reservation?

Yes. All cancellations must be called in the at least the day before your rental.

Here at City-Wide Party Rentals, Inc. we do our best to accommodate all customers in times of unforeseen weather and/or emergency conditions. For this reason, we stay tuned day and night to the local weather conditions in and approaching our area. We ask that all customers do their part and stay informed as to any weather conditions approaching their area. In order for us to better serve all customers, we have developed what we feel is a fair policy for cancellations and rain checks. Sometimes rain may be occurring in one town but not the town right next to it, and it might only last a few minutes. For this reason WE DO NOT CANCEL DUE TO WEATHER, this decision is left solely to the customer. Please feel free to give us a call should you have any questions regarding our policies.

Customers should call by 5:00 PM the day before their rental to check on their scheduled delivery time. In order for all customers to be delivered on time we occasionally deliver several hours in advance of scheduled rental time. The customer is responsible for notifying the office BETWEEN 7:00 - 8:00 AM OR BEFORE THE DRIVER DELIVERS ON THE DAY OF THEIR RENTAL if they need to cancel the rental. Once the equipment is delivered there is NO REFUND. All decisions to cancel due to weather or any other reason need to be made BEFORE the scheduled delivery time, even if the equipment is delivered early. We ask that the customer be informed of all weather conditions approaching by watching or listening to their local news. If a verbal acceptance of the delivery is given over the phone on the morning of the delivery and the customer declines the rental when the driver gets to the rental location, the customer will be charged the full amount on the invoice and no rain check will be given.

 

Do you require a deposit?

We do not require a deposit. However, we do collect your credit card number when confirming the reservation. When placing your reservation the card will only be authorized that it is a working card. In the event of a cancellation, 25% of your total rental fee will be charged to this card.  If cancelled due to weather or emergency, we will hold this 25% charge for up to one (1) year from rental date as a credit to your account in a rain check file. Only for those two reasons will a refund be held in a rain check file, no exceptions. No refunds will be given once equipment contract is signed, so please inform us in advance if canceling your rental.


What is the policy in case of rain, cold temperatures or high wind?

THE INFLATABLE BOUNCES MUST NOT BE USED WHEN WET INSIDE, CURRENTLY RAINING, THE TEMPERATURE IS LESS THAN 45° FAHRENHEIT, OR WHEN WINDS EXCEED 25 MPH! THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT SAFETY ISSUE! If it starts to rain and the inside of the bouncer gets wet, everyone should exit the bounce, the blower unit should be turned off at the unit, and then unplugged. The bounce unit becomes very slippery and dangerous when wet. Once the rain stops, plug the blower unit back in and turn it on. You can wait for the unit to dry or dry it with towels. Once dry, the bounce should be once again safe to use.

**Please call us at 713-623-1759 if you have weather related questions once your unit has been set up. No refunds will be given once the inflatable has been setup and the equipment contract signed.

 

Can your inflatables be set up indoors?

Yes, our units can be set up inside or outside! You will need to have enough ceiling height (about 18-20) to accommodate the inflatable. The inflatable must not be set up to near hot lights, a/c vents, or any fire hazard. Many commercial halls, malls, gyms, etc. will do just fine.

 

Can I set up the inflatable near my pool?

No. Safety is our number one concern. The bounce or slide must be set up a safe distance from any pool, at least 20 feet.

 

Why can't I pick up the inflatable and set it up myself to cut costs?

Safety is our number one concern. Some companies will allow the customer to pick up & set up the units, we do not feel that is a safe idea. The owners of the company personally set up and pick up every rental. The set up area will be evaluated, the correct size, type, and length of power cord will be used and they make sure all of the connections are correctly made. We will use the proper straps, stakes, tie downs, and anchors to secure the inflatable to the ground and ensure its safe operation. Also, each unit is rather large and weighs in excess of 220 pounds, so your safety in transport of these items is also our concern.

 

How safe are your inflatables?

Our inflatables are constructed with quality and safety in mind! All of our units meet the ASTM F2374.07A standards and have a safety entrance/exit ramp for the children's protection and safety and emergency exit flaps in the roof. Each unit is constructed of only the very best commercial grade 18 to 21 oz. vinyl, with double and quadruple stitching. All of the materials are fire retardant. The windows of the bounces are made of specially designed mesh netting, which allows for easy viewing and minimizes the chances of getting entangled. We will also supply recommended guidelines for safe use and recommended number of children allowed in the inflatable at any one time. Beware of cheap, unsafe, imitation inflatables!

 

What methods of payment do you accept?

For your convenience, we accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, & Discover. Please make checks payable to City-Wide Moonwalks, Inc..
