Bed Removal

What is considered a fair fee to pay a tech for removal of a bed and put on skid for shipping? It will be a large VHR Cayenne or S Class.

Re: Bed Removal

I would expect $500-$700 plus expenses.

Re: Bed Removal

That will require at 2-4 people to handle the canopy. So price will depend on:

1. Is it just one tech and you are supplying other lifting help or is tech bringing crew?

2. How far is travel time?

3. What sort of constraints are they working with inside the salon - room sizes, door sizes, hallway sizes --- all can make an extraction easier or harder.

4. Who is providing the pallet? Do they have to make/bring?

5. Assume you want it set back up on the pallet to ship. This means basically reversing the process and rebuilding the entire bed - AND securing to ship safely! Screwing down ballast trays, securing canopy, etc etc etc. Time, materials AND expertise to do that safely.


Keep in mind - it will take several hours to remove the bed and several hours to rebuild. This is a whole day job at least! Add in travel time - they may have to build in an overnight hotel stay along with their mileage, meals and time.


As an FYI - a bed this size will be too big for a liftgate. So plan on having a forklift available to get it on the truck or however you plan for it to leave the salon on the pallet.

Re: Bed Removal

It's no wonder why some choose to just tear apart and throw in dumpster because to do it right, it takes so much time! Very costly to hire someone, harder is to find someone qualified to do it!!!!

1 tech + helper and myself
2 tech is local to the city
3 tech has worked in salon that bed is being removed from, he said no prob. removing.
4 tech is providing pallet
5 he estimated 4-6 hours to break down and rebuild

I will be transporting in 8 by 15ft enclosed trailer metal ramps and electric pallet jack to load..

The tech was referred by salon owner. She said he did the install 7 years ago when salon was opened and has done all maintenance on beds since opening.

Re: Bed Removal

And that is just the cost of moving it. Then you have to count the costs of setup and build out to support the bed including, electrical, HVAC, and physical build out. The cost is more than the bed is worth.

Re: Bed Removal

$500-$700 sounds about right if you are supplying the vehicle.

Peach is once again off base. Those are good beds and your customers will like them.

Once again, Robert is off base. From a salon OWNERS point of view, The question is not will your customers like them; it is 1) are there other pieces of equipment that will provide the same results with less cost to you and 2) will the equipment ROI after all of the expenses are incurred.

These monster beds are going to be considered the dinosaurs and boat anchors of the tanning industry of the future, just like the monster stereos are passť today, and big sound is coming from smaller and smaller units.

Any bed that requires a forklift to move is a "NO".
