Finding a Commercial Bounce House for Sale [May 2019]

Friday, June 7, 2019

Bounce houses are becoming SO popular these days.  They've been a staple at carnivals and other local festivals for years, but they've grown so much in popularity that moms and dads all over are finding more reasons to rent commercial bounce houses from local rental centers.

So, when most people think about finding a commercial bounce house for sale, they're usually doing it so that they can rent it out to others for a profit.  I personally think this is a great idea.  To be honest, I'm quite a fan of a lot of the residential models that are out there nowdays, but when it comes time for a birthday party or a family reunion, there's nothing like having the full-flegded, real-deal commercial grade bounce house.

And as an aspiring business man myself, I've looked into the profitability of the business model and I think it has HUGE potential.  The rental industry tends to be pretty lucrative in general, and when you couple that with the exploding popularity of bounce houses, it's a recipe for printing money.  If you have some risk tolerance, I think it could be pretty easy to earn a decent income on the side or full-time.

But Where Can I Find a Commercial Bounce House for Sale?

First, let me say that I'm a huge fan of Amazon.  Being able to choose from a massive catalog of products, with the convenience of having it land on your doorstep is just amazing.  Having said that, its only recently that commercial grade bounce houses have started selling on Amazon.

These are a few commercial grade bounce houses you'll find on Amazon:

Inflatable Bounce House, 13-Foot by 12-Foot Bounce Area, Crossover Pink Castle Complete with Included Blower, Stakes, Repair Kit, and Storage Bag

$899.99

So, surprise surprise, you can pretty easily find a commercial bounce house for sale on Amazon, and that's the route that I generally recommend going.  In addition to whatever warranty the manufacturer will offer, Amazon itself will usually have a decent return policy that serves, in my mind at least, as an extra layer of security for your large purchase.

While we're on the topic of added layers of security, I'd also recommend buying something like this with a credit card rather than a check or debit card (or, I can't believe I'm saying this, cash).  Having Visa stand behind you is another great thing that you can have going for you.  And by using a credit card and avoiding a debit card, you won't risk someone getting your card info in a data breach and draining your accounts (it's much easier to tell Visa that you won't pay the bill for fraudulent charges, it's quite a bit harder to get real money back into your account).

Anyway, back to the main topic, finding a commercial bounce house for sale.  As I've said, I'd recommend buying from Amazon, but there are also several other distributors who have presences online so you can get in contact with them.  You generally won't find full product catalogs like you'll see on Amazon, but the sites are out there.  Sites like BounceHousesNow and ACMEBounce have decent selections of commercial bounce houses for sale.

Are there Commercial Bounce House Sales?

I don't want to keep going to the same well, but you will find occasional sales on Amazon for commercial grade bounce houses.  My site has a SALE tag that shows up (check the products section) if a product is currently priced lower than its original price.  Check it out and you might find something interesting.

Besides that, I'd recommend checking with your local rental center to see if they're willing to part with one, or if they can give you any other leads on a local source of a commercial grade bounce house.  Most local shops are small businesses, owned by regular people like you and me.  The owners of these kinds of places are usually pretty open and accessible, so it's a good option for finding a cheap commercial grade bounce house. 

These are a few commercial grade bounce houses you'll find on Amazon:

Of course, this isn't necessarily the best option, and if you have big aspirations then these rental centers may one day become your competition, but if you're just starting out or looking for a larger unit for personal use, this is a great option.

Can I Find Commercial Grade Bounce Houses for Sale Used?

It's tough, but you can.  As I've previously mentioned, if you contact local rental centers they may be willing to part ways with one.  Local government auctions can also sometimes be fruitful, but finding those is a skill in itself, and one that I unfortunately do not have.

Do Commercial Grade Bounce Houses go on Clearance?

You'll definitely find sales on Amazon where a commercial grade bounce house will sell for well under the original price.  It's hard to call this full-on clearance pricing, because honestly the prices don't usually drop down that much, but even a small discount can be helpful with these larger, higher-priced units.  The main thing I'd advise is to focus more on quality than drop-dead pricing, because quality will pay off in the long run, especially if you're using this in a business scenario.

These are a few commercial grade bounce houses you'll find on Amazon:

Mega Tropical Red Marble Single Lane Wet or Dry Slide & Bounce House Combo, 32-Foot Long by 16-Foot Wide by 16-Foot Tall, Commercial Grade Inflatable, Blower and Stakes Included

$2,999.99

Can I get one Wholesale?

These days, you can find most products for sale on Ali Express.  If you're not familiar, it's Chinese website where you can purchase white-labelled products direct from manufacturers over there.  If you can find exactly what you're looking for, it's a decent route to go.  The downside of that approach is long shipping times (think multiple WEEKS) and a definite communication barrier.  Couple that with the fact that you may not get the most responsive customer service, and it can be a bit of a risky venture.

Some people will point out that most products on Amazon these days come from Chinese distributors just like the ones you'll find on Ali Express.  While that is true, I like the fact that you at least have Amazon itself to hold somewhat accountable.  Maybe I'm delusional, take my advice as you will.
