Yes, because equipment is rented on a first come first reserved basis we require a credit card deposit to reserve all equipment. This assures you will receive the item that you have reserved on the date that you requested.
We are in the business of providing fun, therefore, if you should cancel your reservation for any reason other than for high wind (15+MPH winds) or lightening, you forfeit your deposit or, you can reschedule to a different day within 1yr of your original reservation date as long as your rental has not been scheduled and loaded for delivery. If a cancellation is requested, prior to delivery, due to rain on the day of the event, you have up to 1 yr to reschedule your reservation without loosing your deposit. If equipment is delivered, or on delivery, and it starts to rain, and you cancel your order, you are still responsible to pay the balance due in full; once we arrive to your setup location, the order is fulfilled and payment, in full, is due. Lambert Bounce Parties, LLC reserves the right to do an early pick up with no refunds in cases where lightening and/ or high winds (over 15+MPH) are present. ANY cancelation, before delivery, due to lightening and/ or high winds (over 15+MPH) will be refunded whether canceled by Lambert Bounce Parties, LLC., at our discretion, or the customer.

If your rental is for a setup at a location where we have just a window for setup and then a hard “must be picked up by” time, there will be an additional fee of $50 added to your reservation. These kinds of setups are doable but do cause scheduling pains as we cannot just add them to a route for pickup when we can get there. This is not usually the case when setting up at a residential property though.
YES! All units are cleaned, vacuumed, and sanitized after each use and before every rental. We never deliver a unit until it has been cleaned. We actually do an onsite sanitation cleaning when we drop off your rental so that you can see it done.
YES! When operated correctly, the bouncers and combos are the safest way to have fun at a party. The kids are all in the same area having a blast, getting exercise, and laughing all the time. If the operator follows all the operating rules, everyone will be safe and have a great time. Under no circumstances should the unit be moved once the delivery person sets it up. We always also properly anchor all of our units, which is why we ask about the setup surface on the quote: grass setups get staked, all others we secure with very weighed sandbags.
Case by cast. If the unit is not rented out for the following day, a unit may be able to be left over night. There is a $50 overnight fee if that is the case and the unit would then be picked up on the following day morning. If this scenario occurs, you are responsible for the care and condition of the unit while in your possession. The overnight fee will be added to parties or events that end at dusk or later that can stay overnight as it is harder to see at night when breaking down.
We try our best to avoid any damage to ANY yards BUT, sometimes weather does not feel the same way. When applicable, we set our units up with a tarp, especially when using wet or if the ground is or will get muddy. Depending on how hot the sun is beaming, having a moon bounce or tarp, or anything really, on the grass for too long can burn the grass. This doesn’t happen often though; we may have this happen to 1-2 customers a year.
There can be expected minor disturbance in the grass where the stakes are placed in order to secure the units, where water will puddle if you rent a water unit or it rains, and maybe flattened grass from the weight of the equipment or from the traffic of it’s users.
No. All rentals include setup. In order to provide the safest experience for everyone, we deliver, set up, and tear down the units. Our experienced team will ensure that the units are setup safely and securely.

30 to 45 minutes to set up, and 15-30 minutes to tear down per unit, depending on location of inflatable and inflatable size.
Usually six to eight, but it depends on the size of the children and the type of inflatable they are on. See chart on our Terms and conditions page, or refer to the instructions on the units for unit specifics.
Yes, provided the driveway is flat enough. We prefer to setup inflatables on a grassy area when possible, because it is easier to safely secure the inflatable and generally safer. We will not setup inflatables on gravel driveways.
A little slope is not a problem — we can usually put the entrance of the inflatable at the top of the slope. Steep slopes, however, are not acceptable and unsafe for inflatables.
Yes, upon request and for an additional fee of $40/hr. that starts upon equipment delivery and ends at time of pick up.
For most residential deliveries, we will park on the driveway or street and use a dolly to move the inflatable to your desired setup spot. With our larger Items, we must be able to drive delivery vehicle on grass. Many games are simply too heavy to carry with a dolly and require a vehicle with a trailer to move the attraction to desired location. Extra outdoor Power outlets are helpful. 20 amp circuits are required. We will only drive on grass in extreme circumstances for certain inflatables.
Do not take food or drinks on or near the units. If a mess is made, try your best to clean the unit with a wet rag then dry with a towel. Super messy stuff will require additional cleaning and may be charged to the client.
