However, there are very few if any equipment dealers - new or used - who will secure the unit, hold it until you are ready for delivery, do any refurbishing (if used and if your vendor provides that), new lamps, put it on a skid, pay to ship/deliver, line up installers and get in the salon without a portion upfront. Too many salon owners who are also sketchy and then "don't have all the money right now" and the bed is already in the salon and delivered.

Bottom line - do some research. Ask questions. Ask for references. Make sure you know you are dealing with someone reputable. And if they do a GOOD job by you - or a bad job - post it here in the community for others to be able to research from in the future.

You will save yourself a lot grief, frustration and especially money if you stay away from 2nd Sun. 2nd Sun could very well be one of the biggest ripoffs in the States. DON'T DO IT! You have been forewarned.
