Whenever purchasing anything, you should always go for the best quality you can afford, and this is just as true for trampolines as it is for say a car, or home improvement item. The importance of making sure the quality of a trampoline is up at the top of your requirements for one cannot be understated – the effect a cheap or poorly-designed trampoline can have on your or your family's health could be catastrophic. This doesn't mean you have to avoid trampolines that are cheap in price; but definitely avoid any that are cheap in build.
Since it's a natural process to want to buy something for as little as possible, we've turned into a nation of "super" bargain hunters. While this isn't a problem in itself, where issues can raise themselves is if we allow bargain hunting to equate to skimping on quality. By looking around, whether in shops or online, there are literally hundreds of great bargains to be had, so there really is no excuse to let the quality suffer as well and buy "a lemon", especially when it comes to something as potentially harmful as a trampoline.
Figures show that as they get more popular for both recreation and fitness, trampolines are now the cause of a lot of injuries in households. Unless properly used and supervise, it's easy to see where the potential for injury could come from. That's why it's so important to go for quality every time; at least a trampoline that is built stronger or better offers less chance of injury than a cheaply constructed one.
Sort Through the Nonsense
However, actually sifting through all the descriptions and sales pitches to find the best available trampoline can be a bit of a minefield at times. This often puts people off, and leads to lesser quality trampolines being bought. However, just by spending this little extra time now could save you spending a lot of time later, either in the doctor's surgery or hospital.
In fact, despite the obvious health and fun benefits, trampolines have been highlighted by the American Association of Paediatrics as generally unsuitable for children, whether indoors or outdoors, due to the potential danger factor. However, it's easier said than done to convince children otherwise, therefore the AAP advises that should you go ahead with a trampoline, makes sure it's as safe as it can possibly be.
Enclosed trampolines offer some of the safest alternatives, as they help to prevent any falls. Ensure that there are plenty of safety mats spread around where the trampoline is situated. Although these particular features only come with the more expensive trampolines, the extra expense far outweighs the medical costs that can be incurred otherwise.

With so many different units on the market today, we feel it is to your advantage to learn all you can about them, BEFORE you purchase one for your family. What you get and where you get it from, does make a big difference. The last thing you want to do is to drag home a big and bulky unit that you bought somewhere else. Only to then get it home, get it about half put together and then discover it's not what you had hoped it would be... Now what?
You need to ask yourself right now, do I want to get my family a cheap inexpensive unit from somewhere else or do I want to get a good quality unit that will provide years of family fun? Remember with a trampoline what you are really buying is the
"quality of the bounce".
Simply put, the better the unit, the better the bounce! Simple enough.
