About Us

We’re Jeremy & Kara Truitt and we’re so glad you’re visiting our site. When we moved to Columbia in 2010 with our boys we wanted to rent a bounce house but quickly realized we just couldn’t afford it. Between the cost of the inflatable, delivery fees and a required “deposit”, it just wasn’t in our budget. So we started Rockin’ Rents with the initial goal of offering a cheaper alternative and making some extra cash for college savings for our boys. We started with 3 bounce houses, a combo unit and a water slide. That was in 2013.

Fast forward a few years and today we’ve grown to be the premier provider of inflatables and event staffing in central Missouri. We now offer almost 40 inflatables to choose from and while we still believe in affordability, we’ve also developed some core values.

  • We deliver, setup and teardown for FREE within 30 miles of Columbia (and always will).
  • We’re the ONLY company in Central MO that offers fully insured staffing for any event.
  • We donate 5% of EVERY event directly to local charities in Columbia (see Charities tab). We believe a profitable business has a responsibility to support the community in which it serves.
  • We donate inflatables to various non-profits, schools and churches every year.
  • We hire local high school and college students, providing 5-10 part-time jobs every season. We also don’t believe in starvation wages so we pay our team members a minimum of $12/hr.
  • We offer a consistent 10% discount to all Military, First Responders and Law Enforcement.
  • We believe in honesty and transparency so we have a rating system on both Google+ and Facebook. Sometimes we fall short, so when we do we hope you’ll leave us a review so we can make it right…every time (we like good reviews too ya’ know)
  • We’re teaching our children the value of hard work and entrepreneurship. They are expected to help with events on occasion…and get paid for doing so.


We know there are several companies in which to rent an inflatable and we hope you’ll choose Rockin’ Rents. While we are a for-profit business and will always strive to be profitable, when you spend your money with us you know part of it is going directly to Columbia charities, part of it is paying healthy wages to local students and part of it is helping us teach the “next generation” about entrepreneurship and the value of work.

So help us make Columbia a better place, help us constantly add new products and have a freaking blast while doing it. Help us build a lasting company that will serve Columbia for years…just one inflatable at a time.

We appreciate you,

Jeremy & Kara Truitt
