RAIN & SEVERE WEATHER POLICY
This policy only applies to events that are scheduled to occur outdoors without appropriate shelter or outdoor orders with items that cannot or should not be exposed to rain or severe weather. This policy does not apply to indoor events on a day that it is raining or experiencing severe weather. During periods of rain or severe weather conditions - such as snow or winds exceeding 15 mph – BBS reserves the right to cancel your order or - if already delivered - to retrieve any BBS property that cannot or should not be used in rain or severe weather without refund. If rain or severe weather is forecasted to occur in your delivery location zip code with a probability of 20% or greater on your scheduled delivery date during the start of your delivery arrival window and the end of your return arrival window AND you are having an outdoor event with items that should not be used during rain or severe weather, you ("Renter") have the option of canceling the entire order by 6:00 PM on the evening before your scheduled delivery date to receive a 50% refund of the order total you have paid OR you can reschedule your entire order delivery to another date of your choosing at no additional cost. If you decide to only cancel a portion of your order that cannot be used in rain or severe weather, you may receive a 50% refund for the cancelled portion only or a credit equal to 100% of the cancelled portion to use towards a future order. You must decide which option you would like and notify us of your choice via a reply email to the confirmation “PAID” email you received after paying for your order by 6:00 PM on the evening before your scheduled delivery date. If you choose the option to reschedule your entire order to another future date, you will have 5 business days from your cancellation date to select a new delivery date. If you are having an outdoor event and cancel your order or any portion of your order due to rain or severe weather after 6:00 PM on the evening before your scheduled delivery date, you ("Renter") will NOT receive a refund for your order. If you decide NOT to cancel your order and instead choose to go ahead with the scheduled delivery but BBS determines it must retrieve the items that cannot or should not be used in the rain or severe weather anytime during your rental, there will be no refunds. IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE RENTER TO MONITOR THE FORCASTED WEATHER CONDITIONS FOR THE DELIVERY LOCATION ZIP CODE IF YOU ARE HAVING AN OUTDOOR EVENT. IF YOU DO NOT CANCEL YOUR ORDER IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE POLICY ABOVE, THE DELIVERY WILL BE ATTEMPTED AND NO REFUNDS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

You can keep the rentals for the entire rental period on the Rental Agreement you sign. The rental period on the Rental Agreement is assigned based on your choices on order placement and our schedule of paid Deliveries & Returns. Most customers choose "Same Day Return" rentals which means that the Rentals will be returned and picked up on the Same Day that they were delivered.
Can I pick up the items myself?
No, we do not currently allow for customer "pick-ups" of any rental orders. We are required to deliver all rental orders to the delivery address on the signed Rental Agreement and to verify the Renter's identity on delivery.
Do you deliver to parks?

If you would like to rent a bounce house or other item that requires electricity for delivery to a park, you must obtain the required permits (if any) required at the park of your choice. You must notify park officials ahead of time and obtain any permits prior to submitting your order. If there are no sources of electricity available to you at the park, you MUST rent a generator from us. If you own a generator and would like to use it with our equipment, please contact us ahead of time to make sure it is compatible with our equipment.
What do I do if one of my rentals malfunctions?
Although it is not common for one of our products to malfunction during a regular rental, we ask that you call us immediately if any malfunction occurs. Your delivery person will provide you with the number they can be reached at for the duration of your rental on your receipt on delivery. If we cannot help you over the phone, we will send out a representative to you as soon as possible to help you with our product or to provide an adequate replacement.
What is your cancellation policy?
