Hiring A Ride, What Do You Need To Know?
How much to hire a dodgems set near me, is a regular question we receive, unfortunately there is no simple answer to fairground ride hire prices, as it depends on where, when and what type. The where and the when are easy to answer, the other questions might need an explanation.
There are basically 2 type of dodgems rides available, the traditional type which is supplied totally dismantled and erected piece by piece., he advantage of this being that they can be carried through small gates, even upstairs, the disadvantage is that the set up time is 6-8 hours.
The alternative is commonly referred to as a continental track or modern dodgems, these are folded up onto a centre trailer for transport tending to be more highly decorated than the traditional model, contain more elaborate lighting systems and higher powered music and can be erected in around 3 hours.
The drawback with modern dodgems is that they need to be driven into position, they cannot be carried up stairs or through narrow gaps.
You also need to take into account the track sizes and quantity of cars required to ensure whichever you choose will fit in your intended venue.
You need to take care when hiring rides like the dodgems, the internet is great for finding something you need,but there are plenty of cowboys out there, our short article on finding the best ride for your money will help.
Like most things in life, if you are offered a super cheap funfair ride, beware, some companies will provide a ride, with only 6 or 7 cars, with no lights or music, and sometimes without the top cover for rain.
When you complain, you will be informed that you have hired the cheap version and that is the quantity of cars you booked, but you can add all the additional extras to build your ride to the normal standard, at which point you may well find that it has worked out more expensive than hiring it that way in the start.
