Would you like us to do a Condition Assessment on your carousel before beginning operation? We will provide a detailed report on the condition of your carousel based on our extremely thorough inspection so you can know what repairs are needed to meet the strict safety standards for carousel operation in your state. We travel to your location to do the inspection of all parts of the carousel, and then provide you with a part-by-part detailed report. The report will contain condition assessment of not only the animals on the carousel, but also all surfaces and mechanical parts on the carousel. If restoration is needed, we will provide an estimate for total or partial restoration as well.
