When looking for cheap trampolines online, it is best to still keep to trampolines which do not become so cheap that the quality suffers. Even though this is a strong recommendation, if you buy a trampoline from our site or any other site which comes from a top manufacture such as a Supertramp, Jumpking, TrampolinesGB and Skyhigh then the quality is of the highest quality anyway so no need to worry.
There could possibly be other companies which fly under the radar who sell cheap trampolines but the quality is not as good as the leading manufacturers. If the quality suffers then the life of the trampoline could suffer but also the safety of the cheap trampoline could also be a worrying consideration. Falling off a trampoline is something you do not want your children to do at all, but if the trampoline is inferior when it comes to the frame for example then it could be possible to fall of much easier. The other side of the safety aspect is the actual bouncemat itself. If this was to fray, tear or become damanged in some other way then catching shoes or barefeet could lead in injury. Therefore make sure you by a top brand such as those on our Madfun site or any trampoline company who appear high in the Google search engine rankings.
If you are buying second hand then cheap trampolines definatly need to be looked at before buying. You have no idea how much it has been used or the quality of this outdoor trampoline unless you visibly see it yourself so make sure you investigate it before handing any money over. See if the bouncemat is in good condition and the frame and springs have not begun to rust. It is recommended to buy a new one if in doubt.
