Trampoline Q & A with Backyard Fun Zone
What’s special about the Springfree Trampolines you sell?
Springfree trampolines are the safest trampolines in the world. Fiberglass mat rods replace the springs – springs are one of the most dangerous parts of a trampoline. And these trampolines offer just as good of a bounce as any other trampoline. In fact, did you know that Trampoline is an Olympic sporting event?In the country of New Zealand, Olympians train on Springfree trampolines. I invite everyone to come in and try out the bounce on our models at the store.
Another Springfree safety feature: All metal is below the surface. Kids can’t hit a rail or the springs. And all trampolines come with a net and cannot be installed without it. Plus, these trampolines have Flex nets, which means no rigid net rods. If a jumper was to get thrown into the net it would bend and flex with the jumper. Finally, we recommend jumping one jumper at a time, which omits the problem of collisions.
Amazingly, the Springfree trampolines have an 1100 pound load capacity. Backyard Fun Zone registers all Springfree trampolines for their customers – which doubles customer’s warranty! The trampoline warranty includes 8 years on frame, 4 years on rods, 2 years on the mat and 2 on the net. Outside of warranty, Backyard Fun Zone will place orders for customers and get Springfree parts at cost. Backyard Fun Zone offers installation and service calls.
What do I do with the trampoline in the winter?
Weather wise, the trampoline is meant to be enjoyed all year round. It can handle snow and kids can jump on it in the snow. Tracie, the owner of Backyard Fun Zone, has left her trampoline up for 11 years. (If you don’t take it down in the winter, do have the children jump the snow off.)
What happens if my Springfree trampoline needs a new part?
Call Bakyard Fun Zone and they will help you either use your warranty or get the needed part at cost. And you can also schedule a service call for installation.
What other services and products do you offer?
We distribute Rainbow Play Systems. There are so many options when it comes to designing your playset- we custom order everything. It takes 2-3 weeks to come in after ordering. If you order a playset from us, we will help you decide where to put the set when we come out for installation.
Gorilla Basketball Hoops are another popular product that we carry. The hoops get cemented into the ground – but you can still take them with you if you move. That’s because the anchor goes into the ground and the pole – hoop assembly is a separate piece. Our prices are very competitive with local sporting good stores and we offer convenient installation via our local team of installers. Service just a breeze with backyard fun zone!
and Trampoline Q & A with a Local Insurance Guy…
Will my insurance company cover me if I have a trampoline?
You need to shop around to find an insurance company that will cover a trampoline. The worst thing to do is not disclose you have a trampoline because your insurance could drop you if they find you’ve violated your policy’s terms. The best thing to do is work with your insurance agent to find an umbrella policy that will cover trampolines.
What is an umbrella policy and why might I want one?
An umbrella policy is very wise, ESPECIALLY if kids other than your own use it. An umbrella policy is cheap too. Typically they are for $1 million and cover anything above the limits of your homeowner’s coverage – all for $150-200 per year. Every homeowner should consider one.
