8:00 am – 12:00 noon
9:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Please ensure you are available via the telephone number(s) you have provided on your event date. Your driver will contact you 20 – 30 minutes before their arrival.
When the driver arrives at your home, they will call you a second time to inform you of their arrival. If the driver cannot reach you via telephone after 15 minutes, the driver will continue their delivery route.
Accommodating redelivery is based on the truck's delivery schedule and route availability. A truck turnaround fee (of at least $50.00) will be assessed/your deposit may be forfeited. You will need to contact our office for redelivery at (301)375-8892 to reschedule your delivery.
At the time of your delivery, an adult aged 18 years or older must be present. This individual will instruct the driver on setting up the rental equipment.
After being instructed on where to set up the equipment, your driver will not move the equipment to another area. To have equipment moved, you will need to contact the office. An additional fee for the movement of the inflatable will be assessed.
A standard (3 prong) 110 outlet within 100' of the setup area is required for operation. To determine the number of outlets your setup requires contacting our office or looking at your item's description (s). The designated outlet(s) should be for the sole use of the equipment to avoid tripping your event location's circuit breaker. Generators are available for rent at $85.00 each (if reserved before your event date) if you do not have adequate electrical access/power. Power issues are considered the Customer's responsibility if a generator is not reserved. Your driver will allow you 15 minutes to resolve any power issues.
If the power issue persists, you may call our office and see if delivery of a generator at $125.00 is possible. (An additional Travel Fee may be applied) Or you may reschedule your event for another date; however, a Truck Turn Around Fee of at least $50.00 will be applied
Most of our equipment requires ground anchors (ground stakes or sandbags). Ground stakes can penetrate the ground 18" – 32". If you have an underground water sprinkler system or lines, we suggest opting for sandbags ($3.00 each). Suppose you would not like to use sandbags to anchor the equipment and have an underground water sprinkler system. In that case, you will be required to sign the "Sprinkler Waiver Form" releasing Backyard Amusements from any damages to your underground water sprinkler system.
All inflatables under our "Bounce House" tab require eight (8) sandbags. Other inflatable equipment varies, and for a correct sandbag count, don't hesitate to contact our office at (301) 375-8892.

**DID YOU KNOW???**
Most States and Municipalities require amusement companies to carry insurance and be registered in order to provide equipment/entertainment for a Public/Large Event. A Public Event/Large Event is defined as any event outside of a private home birthday party/celebration. Operating outside of your State or Municipality's laws can result in your event being shut down, expensive fines, or prison time.
Setup Area – The amount of space your driver will need in order to setup the equipment including ground anchors, blowers etc.
Backyard Amusements can provide Additional Insured Certificates upon request for an additional charge of $50.00. On your request for the Additional Insured Certificate you must include the following information:

**Please note** Additional Insured Certificate does not cover for personal or residential events.
1. Deflate all inflatables by shutting off the blower
2. Evacuate participants
3. Stop the use of equipment until the inclement weather has passed
Once the inclement weather has passed, please follow these important steps:
1. Check the equipment to ensure it has not been damaged and is safe to still use and operate.
2. If you have rented an inflatable piece of equipment turn the blower on to inflate the inflatable.
3. After the inflatable has been inflated for 15 minutes dry the interior surface with a towel. (Vinyl is very slippery when wet)
4. Once the interior surface is dry the inflatable equipment can be utilized again.
Note* The seams on the inflatable will bubble when inflating the inflatable; however, these are air bubbles not caused by cleaning solutions.
