need another bed choice??

I am opening a party store and tanning salon in the next few weeks. I have a 12 minute bed, a 15 minute bed and an air brush system. I am wanting to get one more bed...should I go with another 12 minute, a 15 minute or a stand up unit??
Thank you,
Cabomomma

Re: need another bed choice??

There are hundreds of "12 minute beds" and "15 minute beds" out there. You need to be more specific.

How many lamps, and what wattage, are in each of those beds. Who is the manufacturer, and what "model" is it?

Remember, some people enjoy a good 20 minute nap... I have some people that love the conventional beds..

With so few beds, they will need a faster unit to make any $$$

Re: need another bed choice??

Yes we need alot more details here. But just by what you've said I would go with a 20 minute bed. People still think longer is better. Or you could try a standup
Tanning and Party store?

Re: need another bed choice??

Agree with Jeff -- all things equal, if you have limited space, you need to maximze profitability. A 20 minute base bed will not do that. Probably my last choice, but it depends on what else you have, what you have room for, your electric and A/C situation, your budget, local competition, etc

If there is a NEED for tanning in your community, they will be glad for what you offer, and you need to offer what will maximize your profitability - e.g. the optimal demand and price (e.g. no need to put in a super expensive one that will sit empty, but not too cheap if they will pay a little more).
