IMPORTANT NOTE; SAFETY PLAY, INC.® does not sell playground, sports or recreational equipment, surfacing, or even parts, so the work we perform for you remains free from bias or conflict of interest, and is INSURED. We DO, however, draw upon many years of PAST manufacturing and consulting experience to offer you the best specific modification recommendations! In addition, we do NOT make repairs to your equipment, not so much as a nut or a bolt. This way, we will not profit from it since it is a conflict of interest and makes it a bias service, so beware of the companies that perform audits yet still offer these products and services. "Local" companies may not provide you with the more important factors of having the expertise and experience of having WRITTEN the rules that ALL STATES must adhere to, as well as having other important qualifications. See the "QUALIFICATIONS" page and be your own judge!
We have performed services and made sales in the U.S.A. and other countries (Sweden, Canada, Singapore, Guatemala, Cayman Islands, Jamaica, Virgin Islands, Taiwan, Japan, England, New Zealand, Korea, etc.). So don't be concerned about us not being in your "neighborhood" since we typically combine jobs with other clients in your area, which combines costs and in turn saves you money! Remember, we also offer FREE AIRFARE (favorable restrictions apply)!
