Access to your electricity must be available either before or on arrival of our installation crew. Bucking Events will not be responsible if we are late setting up due to electricity not being available. To power up to 3 blowers we require a minimum 8KVA generator and if from a building we may need the power to be off more than one circuit, so on some hires we will require more than one generator or access to separate areas of the building that is on different circuits. Some inflatables take more than three blowers to inflate them so please check with the office at least three days prior to your event to discuss your power requirements if you are supplying the generators or power from a building.
9a FOR INFLATABLES DO NOT TURN THE POWER OFF unless you speak to one of our staff at the office (there are after hours’ numbers as well) if you wish to use the inflatable again. Once we have installed your inflatable we will not take any responsibility if the inflatable deflates or won’t inflate properly after deflation. Sometimes the impeller inside the blower goes into reverse mode and will only half inflate the inflatable if you deflate during your hire and then try and inflate. We suggest you completely deflate the inflatable again and make sure the impeller inside is not moving. Then and only then turn the power back on. You can call us and we will attempt to assist where possible but take no responsibility after we have installed the inflatable.
