How long does it take to set up/inflate/deflate/pack up the inflatable?

Will you send me a confirmation of booking?
All bookings made with us will be entered into our booking system. You will receive an email with all the booking details. This process allows you check the details of your booking and ensure everything is correct.
Please make sure the area is free from animal foul, sharp objects/litter and is relatively level. As at busy times we are unable to wait for the area to be cleared as we will have other deliveries.
Can you deliver with no side entrance and take castle through the house?
Most of our items can fit through standard doors so this shouldn’t be a problem. However, some of our inflatables are huge and weigh up to 150KG and will require a proper entrance so please advise us of your access type at the time of booking to avoid disappointment on the day.
Do you supply safety instructions?
We provide detailed safety instructions in our safety section of the website which you can view here https://bradfordbouncycastlehire.co.uk/hire-agreements/
Is there an age limit for children using the inflatables?
Yes, all our castles will have specific age specifications which can be found by clicking on each individual item and reading the specification box.
What happens with regards to trailing cables?
All cables are 240v blue commando plugs that are water resistant. We do not cover the cables in order to prevent them from overheating
Who is liable for the safeguard of the equipment?
All items delivered to you are left in your care whilst we are absent until we are able to collect the item(s) you have hired. Remember all theft from the property is the responsibility of the customer not our company.
Are face paints allowed?
Face paints are 100% banned unless you can guarantee the brand is Snazaroo. All other brands react with the PVC & cause severe staining and PVC burns.
Do Bouncy Castles explode?
NO Bouncy castles 100% do not explode.
The inflatable that exploded on the news was an inflatable trampoline and NOT a bouncy castle. The fear at the moment is coming from a complete lack of understanding of the difference between a bouncy castle and sealed trampoline. The trampoline was a pressurised unit that was inflated to a ridiculously high pressure of around 150psi to be able to fire children into the air. Bouncy castles are completely different and do not run in the same way at all. They are soft in nature and have constant cool air leakage through the sewing seams. A bouncy castle runs from a constant air source at only 0.1psi which is 300x less than a child’s bicycle tyre for example and therefore 100% impossible to explode. I understand the panic hype from the media portraying a bad light of inflatables and tarnishing the industry with the same brush but the Sun, Telegraph, ITV, Channel 4, The Mirror, Sky news, Harlow Police have all retracted previous statements about bouncy castles and now ensure they are perfectly safe.
Do you provide staffing/ Supervision?
