    Hi Guys

    Would like some advice. I bought a bouncy castle last year for our family to use. It is a large one with a slide. Was an ex rental one.

    Some friends have asked can they use it during the summer. I never wanted to rent it out but since they are close friends I wouldnt mind. But what happens with insurance? Is it on their home insurance or would I need to buy liability insurance?

    Anyone any idea?

    You would need liability insurance if you are hiring it out. Not worth the risk if something goes wrong imo

    Dont associate with folk who are so precious? Kids have accidents, its part of growing up. If they're likely to sue or whatever you're alluding might happen, draw up a basic waiver removing any responsibility from you so only the kids whose parents sign it get on. Watch the disappointment of their kids faces are the sensible parents just let their kids enjoy their childhood :o
