Buying A Wholesale Tanning Bed
The tanning industry is showing no signs of stopping. If you ever wanted to open a tanning salon, now is the time to buy wholesale tanning beds. Many retailers sell tanning beds at wholesale costs. The best place to buy wholesale is online, since there are no warehouses or sales staff to pay. Online vendors have special buying relationships with manufacturers because of the high sales volume they generate. (Furthermore, even if you want to buy a single bed at wholesale cost, just contact a web vendor and ask whether you can piggyback on another customer's large order.)
Another way to buy wholesale is to contact the manufacturer. They are always looking for free advertising by selling to potential commercial tanning bed salon entrepreneurs. You can save even more money by proposing an agreement whereby you would market a manufacturer's products exclusively.
Used Tanning Beds
There are some used tanning beds out there that are as good as new, at a fraction of the cost. When considering purchasing a used tanning bed, find out the year, make and model, just as if it were a car. Is there built-in obsolescence? Why is the owner selling? Is the bed in violation of FDA rules? Is it malfunctioning? Has the warranty expired? How deep is the discount?

Cheap Tanning Beds
Consider buying a tanning bed at auction. Sometimes salons go out of business and their equipment is auctioned off to pay off any outstanding debt. Keep an eye on online auction houses such as eBay as well as foreclosure notices in your local newspaper.
Otherwise, you can opt for a smaller tanning device known as a solarium. And not only do solariums cost one-tenth as much as tanning beds, they are easy to move and you can store them in a small closet.
