|Frequently Asked Questions|
Does my tax exemption certificate apply to the admissions and amusement tax applied to rentals?
No. Unfortunately, unlike sales and use tax, exemption certificates are not valid for the admissions and amusement tax. Since the tax is imposed on the host of the activity rather than on the consumer, the exemption does not apply.
Yes, we provide free delivery for any address within 20 miles of zip code 21216. Any address over the 20 mile radius will incur a $50 delivery fee. Check the ABOUT section for our service area or you can contact us @ 410-225-3215 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We apologize but, the answer is no. Our delivery crews are contractors for the Big House of Bounce. If an address is outside of their service area, they charge Big House of Bounce and we charge the customer.
The best surface is a level grassy area. However, we can set up on any level surface such as concrete, asphalt, dirt and even indoor gymnasiums. Please specify when ordering which surface we will be setting up on so we can provide the appropriate anchors for your event.
Big House of Bounce LLC. reserves the right to cancel any reservation due to forecasted severe or imminent deterioration of weather conditions. We will grant one (1) rain date to be schedule within one (1) calendar year from the original purchase date. Due to the ever-changing nature of weather forecasts, weather cancellations can only be decided upon the day of the rental. As a safety precaution, Big House of Bounce LLC. will not set up in the rain nor winds of twenty (20) mph or more. If the forecasted weather calls for unfavorable weather conditions, it is the customer’s responsibility to contact our office to discuss canceling the rental and rescheduling the event. If the customer cancels due to rain before the delivery is in route, a full refund can be issued. If it is not actively raining and you wish to have the unit set up, we will be happy to do so. Please be advised that once your delivery is in route, no refunds or reimbursement will be provided.

Yes, a $20 fee is charged for proof of insurance/permit fee .
How much room do I need?
You will approximately need an area of 18’ x 18’ and a vertical height that can allow at least 15’ of clearance. It depends upon which size of the moon bounce you select. Imagine 2 cars parked side by side in your set area.
How much room do you need to bring the moonbounce in?

What time do you deliver and pickup moonbounces?
The typical ranges of rental times are 3 hrs, 6hrs or all day rental (up to 10 hours). You decide on the specific time you want the moon bounce set up and we’ll be there 1 hour before the start time. Also, you do not pay for our setup time, all rental periods are jumping time only. Picking up is based on the number of hours you rent for. Special arrangements can be made if you need to leave (example: dinner, or another party) by a certain time, just let us know. For park parties, we run the timing a little tighter. Your order representative will brief you on this if applicable at the time of confirmation.
What are your hours of operation?
Our office hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday.
How far in advance should I book?
Since weekends fill up fast, we recommend calling at least 6 weeks to 2 months in advance to ensure you get your preferred inflatable(s).
Do you deliver on holidays?
Yes, we deliver for all holidays.
Can I order overnight?
No, we apologize but we currently do not offer overnight services. We do offer two day packages as long as the items rented are housed inside of a building.
Is it cheaper if we pick up the moon bounces ourselves?
No, in fact, Big House of Bounce does not offer this option. All of our drivers are trained as professional installers and are certified by Big House of Bounce to be the exclusive installers of our equipment. When the safety of your children is of a concern, it is always best to leave it up to the professionals to do the work. In addition to this, the liability insurance that we carry does not permit unauthorized set up or moving of our equipment.
