Why others have chosen us for so long...
Hi! Thanks for visiting Jumping Jacks. Many of you have heard about us but don’t know much about us. That’s what this page is for. The name (to some degree) has been around since 2002, but has changed ownership a couple times, always keeping it in the “family”. It was started in 2002 by Dan Wells. He bought 1 or 2 bounce houses and began renting them out for a little extra cash. As time went on he grew and began to buy bigger and better units. These new units made it necessary for him to begin following state regulations and get insurance. His goal was to always maintain a safe and fun environment for kids. In 2016, Dan sold the company to a coworker who ran it for 2 years before selling it to me, Chad Burkholder.
I’ve worked for Dan since a few years after he started. At first it was just a way for my younger self to make some money. Little did I know that I would purchase the company in 2018. In the beginning, I didn’t think much would amount out of it. But in Nov of 2018 I attended one of the nations largest expos and met several operators around the US that have helped light a fire in me to be the best company around for your inflatable and party needs. I enjoy every day I work and most of all, talking to each of you. My delivery crew hates when I’m with them because I talk more than I help.
Since 2018, we have reviewed Missouri’s and ASTM standards to increase the safety of our equipment for our users. I have attended several seminars and lectures both in person and online to bring you the best experience you can possibly have. One of them lead us to our new (as of 2020) rental structure which has 3 tiers. You are no longer restricted by hours, but instead days.
The tiers act like this:
Special Event rental prices are one price no matter the duration of your event during any given day. The only thing that is determined by the time is staffing of an event. This tier is for churches, schools, businesses, not-for-profits, or any legal entity that may have an event. Typically, these organizations are not having an event in a residential area and only last 3-4 hours (it can be longer).
Residential Weekday rentals are for customers that have their events anytime during the week. This price is generally lower and matches the Special Event rate because our weekday rentals are not as busy. Customers can save by having there party during this time. You can have your rental any length of time DURING ONE DAY Monday through Thursday.
Residential Weekend rentals are similar to the weekday, however, you have an added benefit. You don’t have to keep your rental for just the one day. It can be the entire weekend. We’ll deliver on Friday before 7p and pick up on Monday usually about the same time as we drop off. We’ll notify you of your delivery time either Wednesday night or Thursday morning the week of. The price is the same whether you rent it for one hour or all weekend. It doesn’t matter. This allows you to be able to throw a couple of parties in one weekend if you have multiple children, give your kids something to do outside and expend some energy.
Ultimately, we want to give you the best experience for the best value. We’ve done over 1500 birthday parties, church events, school field days, carnivals and other events in the last 3 years. Each year more customers are trusting us with their events and parties giving us a lot of insight on how we can better serve you. Don’t trust us? see what some of our customers have to say.
