I would like to start out with four beds. What do you think I should start out with?

This is a hard question for us to really answer... Do a search on all beds out there. Contact the companies... ask lots of questions. And REmember that customer service after the sell is very important....

What Mitzi said, mainly because we do not know your demographics or how much competition you have. Better to start small and add later rather than struggle to pay for too many.

Four Beds??....all drMueller from Future Industries; 2 SunMagna (Orions), 1 SunStorm (Orbit), 1 SunGate (GiantSun)..you will kill any 10 bed salon!!

We too, have a 4 beds salon and recently put in 4 new beds, all the same,34 Bulb VLR'S. Reason being on the old beds, 2 had face tanners(30 bulb),2 were reg. beds w/out face tanners(also,30 bulb beds.) People had preferences as to which beds they wanted and we found when we were too busy/booked solid, we didn't have time for tanners to wait for specific beds. We bought 4 new 15 minutes beds at the Vegas show last year, and are really happy with them and so are our tanners! This seems to work really well for us, however we are in a small community and have no competition w/in 20 miles.

If I only had a 4 bed salon they would all be high end.
1 360 hp lay down
1 360 hp standup
2 BIG VHR's

Short session times and high dollar sesions---Able to make serious money.

With 4 basic beds there is no real money to be made.

Careful: I have one market this would work in and one where it would not. One of my salons simply WILL NOT spend this kind of money...they just do not have it. I have trouble administering CPR after trying to push a $30 bottle of lotion at one of my stores while it flies off of the shelf at the other!

Thank-you for your reply's but, I wasn't planning on starting with all basic beds. Probably two basic, two upgrade and maybe a stand-up. I would rather start slow and add for growth as needed.

I am not all the experienced. However after alot of reading, I think if your doing 6 beds you need either way difference. 2 base,1mid 1 hp.
always need base beds. then bump them up to level 2 then keep it going to HP bed.YOu can cover all bases. 100 watt level 1, 160 watt level 2 then hp as level 3. You should be good.
