Cancellations…

Cancellations Policy: Once you have placed an order you have entered into a contract, However we understand that cancellations are needed to be made from time to time, our cancellation terms are outlined below and are designed to be very reasonable. The policy is only in place to protect both our and your best interests and ensure that our out of pocket expenses are covered. It is not designed to be profitable on our part;
Orders up to £100: Cancellations are accepted. All we ask is that you cancel the order before 12noon on the friday before your event. Should your order be cancelled after 12noon on the friday before your event or on the day of the event (including refusal of delivery on arrival) your order will be subject to a 100% cancellation fee (Reduced to 50% if paid within 7 days) to cover cost already laid out for your booking such as the testing and organising of your entertainment, loading up, vehicle & generator hire and staff commitments which will now have to be paid for regardless of weather your event goes ahead or not. All payments made will be treated as a booking fee and not a deposit and as such, non refundable.
Orders between £100 and £200: Cancellations are accepted but must be made at least 7 days in advance of the event in order not to incur a cancellation charge. Cancellations made between 7 days in advance of the event and up until 12noon on the day before your event will be subject to a 50% cancellation fee (Reduced to 15% if paid within 7 days)
to cover our costs. Should your order be cancelled after 12noon on the day before your event or on the day of the event (including refusal of delivery on arrival) your order will be subject to a 100% cancellation fee to cover cost already laid out for your booking such as the testing and organising of your entertainment, loading up, vehicle & generator hire and staff commitments which will now have to be paid for regardless of weather your event goes ahead or not. All payments made will be treated as a booking fee and not a deposit and as such, non refundable.
Orders between £200 and £400: Cancellations are accepted but must be made at least 14days in advance of the event in order not to incur a cancellation charge. Cancellations made between 14 days in advance of the event and up until 12noon on the day before your event will be subject to a 50% cancellation (Reduced to 25% if paid within 7 days) fee to cover our costs. Should your order be cancelled after 12noon on the day before your event or on the day of the event (including refusal of delivery on arrival) your order will be subject to a 100% cancellation (Reduced to 50% if paid within 7 days) fee to cover cost already laid out for your booking such as the testing and organising of your entertainment, loading up, vehicle & generator hire and staff commitments which will now have to be paid for regardless of weather your event goes ahead or not. All payments made will be treated as a booking fee and not a deposit and as such, non refundable.
Orders over £400: Unfortunately all orders over the value of £400 are subject to a 50% cancellation fee regardless of when the order or cancellation is made due to the large amount of preparation and event management that will have taken place already that must be recovered. Should your order be cancelled after 12noon on the day before your event or on the day of the event (including refusal of delivery on arrival) your order will be subject to a 100% cancellation fee (Reduced to 50% if paid within 7 days) to cover cost already laid out for your booking such as the testing and organising of your entertainment, loading up, vehicle & generator hire and staff commitments which will now have to be paid for regardless of weather your event goes ahead or not. All payments made will be treated as a booking fee and not a deposit and as such, non refundable.
Cancellations on arrival due to not fitting: All sizes and dimensions are clearly displayed on our website. Should we arrive on the day and the items not fit in your chosen venue or event area your order will be subject to a 100% cancellation fee to cover cost already laid out for your booking such as the testing and organising of your entertainment, loading up, vehicle & generator hire and staff commitments which will now have to be paid for regardless of weather your event goes ahead or not. No exceptions. We will try our best to provide an alternative or accommodate the relocation of the entertainment, however our event staff will only have a finite amount of time allocated to your booking and must keep a tight schedule in order not disrupt other bookings on that day. All payments made will be treated as a booking fee and not a deposit and as such, non refundable.
Generators: All generators are non refundable as they are hired in on your behalf. There is no course for Funbounce Entertainments to recover costs associated with the hire as payment is paid up front and in advance at the time of your booking on your behalf. Additional fuel charges are however 100% refundable.
Refusal of delivery: Should our team arrive at your venue and for whatever reason you cancel the booking your order will be subject to a 100% cancellation fee (Reduced to 50% if paid within 7 days) to cover cost already laid out for your booking such as the testing and organising of your entertainment, loading up, fuel costs, vehicle & generator hire and staff commitments which will have to be paid for regardless of weather your event goes ahead or not. WET OR BAD WEATHER IS NOT A VALID REASON FOR TURNING US AWAY WITHOUT NOTICE AND THE CANCELLATION CHARGE WILL STILL APPLY. The only way in which to avoid a penalty is to provide our delivery team with a copy of your Cancellation Confirmation. Failure to pay on the day will result in your case being presented to Daniel Silverman Ltd as outlined below.
Bulk orders: Cancellation of bulk orders and multiple event date carries a strict 50% cancellation fee (Reduced to 25% if paid within 7 days) on ALL BOOKED EVENTS. This is due to the number of resources and equipment tied up on multiple dates across the year. Under no circumstances will any refund be given. The charge is a calculation based on a mixture lost revenue from previous examples of bulk cancellations, staff resources and administration already dedicated to your events and lack of availability of items to other clients as a result. This charge is designed to cover our costs and not make a profit from your misfortune.

All payments made will be treated as a booking fee and not a deposit and as such, non refundable.

PIPA/ RPII & TEST related cancellations: Please note that All PIPA/RPII & TEST related cancellations will be subject to a 100% cancellation fee (Reduced to 50% if paid within 7 days)
. NO EXCEPTIONS.
PIPA/RPII is commonly misconstrued as the law and PIPA is not the law.PIPA is merely a brand.

The ONLY legal requirement for the safety inspecting of bouncy castles and inflatables is to comply with The Provision and Use of Work Equipment regulations 1998 (PUWER).

PIPA is NOT the law - PUWER IS the law!

This states that you MUST HAVE an annual inspection carried out by a competent person. The HSE themselves do not and will not officially recommend any specific body. All they specify is if the test was carried out by a competent person and as such we use the brand BETTER BOUNCE DIRECT

As part of this testing, The tester must be able to demonstrate that the inflatable is manufactured in accordance with the latest BS/EN14960 Regulations, which ensures inflatables are safe in design and manufacture, are Flame retardant and fit for purpose as well as ensuring the inflatables are in a good state of repair.PIPA testing is therefore not the law, whereas the company’s adherence to PUWER is the law.

PIPA is simply a brand of testing and despite popular belief, not compulsory. This confusion is lead mainly by PIPA being one of the first bodies to offer testing of inflatables and has become a household name in the same way the we use the word “Hoover” when in fact we are referring to the “Vacuum Cleaner” or the word “Tannoy” when we are referring to a public address system (PA).

One of the main reasons we do not use PIPA is that PIPA is only in place to reflect safety of bouncy castles & inflatables designed solely for Bouncing & Sliding and not really adequate for a company as large and diverse as ourselves. Gladiator Duels, Assault courses, Bungee Runs, Knock out inflatables, Pillow bashes, Bouncy Boxing, Human table football, Human Bowling and most of the other items on our website do not qualify for testing by PIPA.

In absence of any further laws we opt to use the brand BETTER BOUNCE DIRECT, We do this because of the following reasons:

  • The company has been around for over 25 years gaining an almost Unraivelled level of competence.
  • They issue safety inspections certificates independently that comply with PUWER.
  • The company issue every inflatable with a unique serial number to enable tracking even after sale.
  • Each certificate comes with a log book and a service history section so you can track its history (like a car)
  • They are members of The British Inflatable Hirers Association (BIHA)
  • They are members of The Inflatable Play Enterprise (TIPE)
  • They have completed The Registered Play Inspectors International training day.
  • They are open 7 days a week for verification of certificates on 0113 2574483 or by email on:betterbounceebay@gmail.com

More importantly, ALL our inflatables are tested by Betterbounce Annually and we have a complete record of in house weekly testing and maintenance schedules. To view our test, please email us and we will be happy to provide you with our records.

I must also point out that we are fortunate enough to have had our Health and Safety & testing regime inspected by the HSE themselves and they are 100% happy with our proceedings.

ADIPS related cancellations: Please note that All ADIPS related cancellations will be subject to a 50% cancellation fee. NO EXCEPTIONS.
ADIPS is commonly misconstrued as the law and it is not. Inflatables do not fall under the Amusement ride regulations but under EN14960 to which all of our inflatables comply.

The ONLY legal requirement for the safety inspecting of bouncy castles and inflatables is to comply with The Provision and Use of Work Equipment regulations 1998 (PUWER).

ADIPS is NOT the law - PUWER IS the law!

This states that you MUST HAVE an annual inspection carried out by a competent person. The HSE themselves do not and will not officially recommend any specific body. All they specify is if the test was carried out by a competent person and as such we use the brand BETTER BOUNCE DIRECT
