Rep Power: 0 Salon Girl 2005 is on a distinguished road
I am in the process of opening my first salon. I am not new to the tanning business (I was manager of one for 4 years in college); but I am ashamed to say that the whole time I worked in a salon I never had to deal with the breakers (except during power outages), or the beds if they malfunctioned. I never even had to change the bulbs when they burnt out. The owner always took care of that whenever he called us for status checks and we would let him know if there was a problem. Bottom line: I have no idea how to fix a bed that breaks (I do know how to change the bulbs finally-I made him show me once , as for the rest of the maintenance part-I'm clueless). My question is: does anyone know where I can take classes on how to fix bed parts when they break, or am I better off hiring a professional to do this; and if so can someone recommend a good company to use?

I think you should hire someone who can show you what to do. The tanning fact book 2005 just came out and has a lot of tips on taking care of your beds and bulbs.

The distributor that sold you the beds should of or should help you with this, if it's them sending a service tech to explain and train you or your distributor doing it for you.

That's the job of your distributor for taking all that money.
