your place. your memories.
Provide the life of the party with amazing
rentals to entertain all ages!
All rentals are full day which is 8 hours. Prices listed include delivery, set up, and tear down.
Delivery is free within a 10 mile radius of Hamilton, MT.
Areas outside of the 10 mile radius will incur a $1.00/mi charge (with the exclusion of the rockwall.)
A credit card is required to be kept on file for rentals.
We do our best to accommodate all requested rental times however, due to the various locations we travel throughout the valley and varying set up/tear down times, we must go by a first come, first serve system. We require a 2 hour window before and after your designated set up/tear down time in order to manage our delivery schedule.
Our rentals are equipped with the Watchdog Blower Siren to keep your kids safe – All inflatable bouncy houses need a blower to keep the structure inflated. But when the blower stops inflating, lost air immediately makes the structure unstable. When this happens, every second counts!
your outdoor rental questions answered
frequently asked questions
YES! This is an important question considering that not all inflatable companies are insured. Bitterroot Bouncers is fully insured with a 2 million dollar liability insurance policy. A copy of our insurance binder is always available to you upon request. A service charge may apply to those wishing to be named as an additional insured on our policy. Any such fee is due and payable once the certificate is requested whether or not the rental ever occurs.
The number of people will differ dependent upon a few factors. In general terms each of our standard size bouncers are designed to safely accommodate up to 8 young children at one time. Older kids may use our bouncers as well, however, the limit goes down as the age and size go up. Our Obstacle Course can accommodate up to 12 young children at a one time and is great for large parties and school or church functions. It is always recommended that you group the participants by age and size. Our smaller units such as the Princess Castle and X-Men bouncers can accommodate 8 children at a time with a weight limit of 70lbs. per person maximum. Our Giant Slide and Waterslide are designed for children to go down one at a time down, but up to 4 people can be waiting in the stairway. Our Interactive inflatables are all different and difficult to list here, but call us and we’ll be happy to discuss them with you. Each of our inflatables has a set of manufactures rules printed on it, when in doubt refer to those rules printed on each inflatable.
Our inflatables are very durable and will hold up well under normal use. The customer however, is responsible for any damage to the Inflatable caused by but not limited to; overloading or allowing individuals in excess of weight limits on or in the inflatable, silly string, face paint, gum, food or drink, dirt, shoes, or punctures caused by sharp objects such as jewelry, buttons with pins, etc… Damage charges will be based upon the cost to repair plus any lost business. In addition if any inflatable, not designated for wet use, is found wet at pick up time (for other than weather related causes) the customer will be charged for set up, drying and re-rolling expenses at a rate of $20.00 per hour. These additional charges will be automatically billed as part of the balance due.
We understand that weather can change quickly, making it difficult to plan events well in advance. We ask our patrons to keep tabs on the weather and remain in communication with Bitterroot Bouncers in order to manage your pending rental. Our weather policy states that during periods of severe weather conditions (i.e. rain, heavy rain, high winds, etc.), for safety reasons we reserve the right to cancel your reservations. On the day of your rental, if weather conditions are predicted to be adverse, we may give you the option of accepting delivery or not. If your original rental date is cancelled due to severe weather, we offer a few options: 1) We are happy to reschedule your rental for a later date, 2) Move your party to our indoor play center where you can take advantage of our party room and bouncing. This will be available based on the availability of your requested party time. If a room is available at that time, the transition will be seamless. If there are already parties occupying the party rooms, you would need to choose an alternative time. 3) If rescheduling is not possible, we will, in this case, refund your rental. If on the other hand, we agree to deliver and you decide to accept delivery, there will be no refunds or credits issued regardless of how long you were able to use the inflatable! Please NOTE: If the inflatable gets wet everyone must exit until the rain stops and the unit is dried. THE INFLATABLE MUST NOT BE USED WHEN WET or WHEN WINDS ARE 15 MPH OR MORE or exceed the manufactures guidelines. Once wet, inflatables becomes very slippery and dangerous. Once the rain stops you can dry the unit with towels. Once dry the inflatable will be safe to use.
Yes! We offer a multi-unit discount. Renting 2 pieces will yield a 5% discount and 3 or more units will receive a 10% discount. Furthermore, if you are planning a large event where multiple items and attendants are needed we can work with you on special pricing for those types of events as well. Please call for details. We believe our pricing, our clean and high quality equipment, and our professional service will always represent your overall best value.
Reservations are currently being accepted by phone or in person at our indoor play center but will also be offered via our website in the very near future. Rentals may be booked using a credit card, PayPal, cash, or check at the time of reservation. If you have questions or would like to make a reservation, give us a call at (406) 203-0033 so we can help. Please call early for best availability. We can’t stress this enough. Many times people will plan their entire party three months ahead of time and then try to reserve an inflatable two weeks before the event! During the spring, summer, and fall months items book quickly. The best way to get the inflatable you want, is to figure out your date, and call us to find out it is available. Then, contact your guests after you have your desired piece reserved. By calling early, you increase the likelihood of getting the item(s) that you want.
Yes, a minimum $100.00 deposit using a Master Card, Visa or Discover Card is required in order to secure a rental. The balance due on your account will be charged to the credit card on file the morning of your event. If you are paying with a check, checks should be made out to Bitterroot Bouncers and will be collected at delivery the day of your event.
Cancellations must be made no less than 72 hours of contracted rental date in order to receive a full refund. Cancellations made within the 72 hour window or less will only receive a refund of half the total rental cost or may choose to reschedule your rental within 2 months of original rental date and dependent upon availability. It is the renters responsibility to check the expected weather conditions on the date of your rental. If we set up the bouncy house you have rented, there will be no refunds given. For weather related cancellation decisions due to the possibility of rain, we allow customers until the afternoon before their rental to decide whether or not to move forward with the rental. If however, forecasts for the day of an event predict severe weather, including rain, heavy rain or wind speeds in excess of 15 MPH, Bitterroot Bouncers reserves the right to cancel all rentals to ensure the safety and well being of our customers and their event participants. If a cancellation due to weather is necessary all monies paid can be applied toward a future rental or will be returned to the customer without penalty. At Bitterroot Bouncers we take safety very seriously and we appreciate your understanding in allowing us to ensure that every rental is a safe and enjoyable experience.
Each item that you rent from Bitterroot Bouncers comes with a set of printed operational guidelines and safety rules. These printed guidelines and safety rules will accompany the rental agreement that you must sign. Please read all these guidelines and safety rules and familiarize yourself with them. Our delivery crew will review these guidelines and safety rules with you again at the time of set up. Ultimately you are responsible for the safety of all those using our equipment while it is in your possession. We take safety very seriously. You should too. Persons not following the safety rules should be immediately instructed to exit the inflatable.
150 feet is the maximum distance allowable between the inflatable and the source of electrical power. Here’s why: We carry LOTS of extension cords on our trucks and are often asked: why can’t you just run more cord? Simply stated: the longer the distance the greater the loss of power. Even with the heavy duty commercial grade extension cords we use, the voltage drop over 100 feet is significant. The fan motor which keeps the inflatable inflated requires a set amount of voltage at all times. When an excessive amount of cord is run, the voltage drops causing the fan motor to run slower and hotter. This can result in 1) tripped circuit breakers and/or fire 2) fan motor failure 3) slow fan motor speed and inadequate inflation. In cases where the set up location is more than 100 feet away we will require the use of a portable electric generator. Bitterroot Bouncers rents generators for $75/day, however, they are not routinely carried on our delivery trucks and must be reserved in advance.
Our inflatables use very little electricity. Generally each inflatable has one blower (fan) which runs continuously and keeps the unit inflated. Each blower draws approximately 6 to 12 amps when running. A standard 110 volt 3 prong grounded outlet located within 150 feet is required for operation. It is best that the outlet (or circuit that the outlet is located on) not be shared with any other equipment. If you are renting multiple inflatables, then we strongly suggest that you identify and make sure that additional separate circuits are available within the 150 feet limit. Bitterroot Bouncers does rent portable electric generators if conditions require, however, they are not routinely carried on our delivery trucks and must be reserved in advance.
All the dimensions of each of our inflatables are listed on our web site under “Outdoor Rentals.” Please add approximately 15 feet to each measurement to provide proper clearance of fences, buildings, wires, over-hanging trees, etc. Other important considerations are: 1) that the area is fairly level, for safety reasons we do not set up on hills 2) an electrical outlet must be within 150 feet 3) any sprinkler heads and/or irrigation lines should be clearly identified. We don’t want to damage your sprinkler system when staking down the inflatable.
The area for your inflatable set up does not need to be perfectly level: however, a reasonably flat area is desirable. Generally, no more than an 8 inch slope per 10 feet would be considered reasonable. For safety reasons inflatables can never be set up on a hill. Also please note the following as it pertains to the delivery location: 1) We can not push our inflatables up steep hills and or multiple sets of steps to get to the set up or pick up location. If your location has multiple sets of steps, or a steep or large hill, we may refuse delivery unless you provide the extra man power to traverse the hill or steps both at set up and at pick up. It is your responsibility to inform us of any steps, steep inclines or hills at the time the reservation is made. 2) We will not allow our delivery crew to set up in any location that is not listed on your rental agreement or any location that the crew deems unsafe for your rental or the physical safety of the delivery crew and equipment. 3) We will not allow the delivery crew to set up at any location that illegal activity is witnessed whether or not you are the person conducting the illegal activity. If there is a question we may be able to arrange for a site survey of your location.
Bitterroot Bouncers cannot guarantee that the use of an inflatable will not have an effect on your lawn. Due to the weight of the piece and depending on the length of time the inflatable is in use and weather conditions that day, flattened grass is common but not permanent. During the heat of the summer, it is not uncommon to see burned blades of grass a few days after the inflatable has been removed. The grass typically recovers within a week.
No! All inflatables must be set up a safe distance away from a pool or waterfront. Furthermore, unless the inflatable has been designated safe for wet use, such as our water slides, you must make every effort to keep the inflatable dry at all times. At no time should water balloons, hoses, squirt guns, etc be allowed anywhere near the inflatable. If any inflatable, not designated for wet use, it found wet at pick up time (for other than weather related causes) you will be charged for set up, drying and re-rolling expenses at a rate of $20.00 per hour. These additional charges will be automatically billed as part of the balance due.
Yes, our units can be set up inside PROVIDED there is sufficient room. For inside set ups you will need to have enough ceiling height to accommodate the unit with ample clearance space from any lights, vents or any other hazards that may be present. Some units are 18 ft. high. Generally garages, basements, family/rec. rooms in residential dwellings do not accommodate the height or overall size of our units. Many commercial halls, school gyms, park & rec. facilities, church halls, town meeting rooms, etc. will do just fine however. You, the customer are responsible to ensure the inflatable will fit. If the unit does not fit once we arrive payment is still due in full.
Delivery, setup/pickup is FREE to many towns that are in a close proximity to our warehouse location. Those towns that require additional travel time do have a delivery fee in addition to the rental fee. Please contact us directly for specific information on delivery charges. If a delivery fee is charged for your area, it is only one flat fee regardless of the number of items that you are having delivered that day. All delivery fees are waived for rental packages over $1,500.
We will pick up the equipment as close to the listed end time on your rental agreement as possible. Depending upon the day , pickup could be exactly at that time or up to a few hours later. Our latest end time varies by the season due to the number of daylight hours. We always strive to complete pickups prior to darkness, so that: 1) our crew can properly inspect the equipment 2) no equipment is accidentally left behind and 3) our crew can work safely and timely. Ultimately you are responsible for the equipment until we pick up.
The Bitterroot Bouncers delivery crew strives to provide you with the best rental experience. They will consult with you on your preferred set up location and go over all operational guidelines and safety rules before they leave. They will also provide you with an emergency phone number should something unexpected occur during your rental period. Providing a high level of customer service is part of their job. While tips are never expected, should you feel that our crew provided you an exceptional level of service and is deserving of a tip, they are certainly ALWAYS APPRECIATED.
