What You Should Know Before Buying A Trampoline


Buying a trampoline can be a whole lot of fun – especially if you didn’t have one yourself when you were young. If you’ve begun the task of finding the perfect trampoline, you might have quickly found that it isn’t as easy you previously thought and that instead of just a few sizes, trampolines can have dozens of features! To help guide you on the path to trampoline enlightenment, in this article we demonstrate a few great tips to keep in mind when buying a trampoline to help get you (and your kids, of course) the perfect trampoline – soon enough you’ll be a trampoline expert!

The first things to consider when trampoline shopping

Before you rush out and buy a cheap trampoline with Afterpay, taking note of a few of these points may help you make a more informed decision, which in turn can help you to save money in the long-run! Rather than opting for whatever is on sale, do a little bit of research on trampoline manufacturers. Understanding who makes quality trampolines will not only ensure your trampoline stands the test of time, but you’ll have the peace of mind to know that what you get is safer than a lot of the other products on the market today. To find out which brands produce the best trampolines, consider blogs, review websites and shopping hubs like Amazon to find out what trampolines go over well with bouncing connoisseurs. After you have some idea of what manufactuer to go with, you can decide on how big you want your trampoline. As they range from very small one or two-person surfaces to areas that are a massive five metres in width. This will not just depend on how many people you want on the trampoline at one time, but how much space you have in the backyard for it – many people underestimate the space trampolines take up, so make sure to measure and remeasure.

A few of the more overlooked things to remember

With the basics out of the way, there are a few things many people forget to factor in when buying a trampoline. Looking for net enclosures is always a very good idea, as trampolines have, by design, the potential for kids to bounce around unexpectedly. Nets are particularly valuable if your children are completely new to trampolines, as it only takes one awkward bounce to cause some serious damage. On the topic of safety, ensuring you know the weight capacity of the trampoline will ensure you don’t let too many people on at once (or at least compensate for it with a bigger trampoline), as this also has the potential to cause some safety issues. Finally, checking the warranty and spare parts availability will help out should there be any issues in the future with the trampoline (although hopefully you won’t need to chase something like this up). After all, if one small part costing a few dollars wasn’t available to fix an issue with your trampoline, there’s your investment down the drain!

Finding the perfect trampoline for your needs

Although there are a few things to keep in mind, applying all of these to your purchase will help you get the most out if your trampoline for years to come. All it takes is for you to do a little bit of research and ensure that you’re not buying the cheapest trampoline you can find, as this is often a recipe for disaster.
