Many serious tanners will be happy to know that they can now afford to have their very own tanning bed, in their very own homes! That’s right, home tanning beds are finally affordable for everyone. Even those who cannot shell out the money for home tanning beds in one payment can easily get financing – as long as they carefully pay attention to the terms of the loan!
Tanning salons are fine, but having your own tanning bed at home is sheer luxury. There are many beds that are now designed specifically for home use, operating on standard 120-volt home outlets. These beds are typically a bit smaller in dimensions than commercial tanning beds – to save space in your home – but they are certainly just as powerful as the beds that you find in tanning salons.
New home tanning beds can usually be purchased for around $ 2000. At that price, you can find a quality bed that will suit your needs. Of course, if you want more features, you can pay upwards of $ 5000 for a home tanning bed – but most average tanners don’t need that much bed! If you cannot afford to pay that much at one time, you will find that many dealers now offer financing. Banks and loan companies also finance home tanning beds, if you have good credit.
If you do not have good credit, beware of some finance companies that offer to loan money on ‘luxury items.’ A tanning bed is a luxury item, and the terms of the loan may be impossible to meet. For instance, many of these ‘easy financing’ companies charge outrageous interest rates. Some charge reasonable interest rates, but include a stipulation in the contract that if you are even one day late with the payment, the interest will be raised considerably! If possible, you should avoid financing, and just save the money to make the purchase outright.
Another option for obtaining your very own personal tanning bed is to buy a used one. There are many sources for quality used tanning beds. In fact, many salons sell their tanning beds when they are ready to upgrade. Dealers often sell their showroom models at a greatly reduced rate as well. You can often find tanning beds for sale in your local classified ads. Be very careful when buying a used bed. Find out why it is for sale, and make sure you test it to make sure that it works as it should before making the purchase. Also, find out what the price of the same bed is when it is brand new to make sure that you are getting a fair price.
Another option for a cheap home tanning bed is to purchase one through a wholesale company. This is a way to avoid financing, and avoid buying a used bed. Wholesale companies are easy to find – simply use the Internet and do a search for ‘wholesale tanning beds.’ You will be amazed at the search results that pop up. This is also a great way to purchase tanning bed parts and tanning supplies. When purchasing from a wholesale company, just be sure to check the refund and exchange policy before making your purchase. You want to be able to return the bed if anything is wrong with it!
Don’t be afraid to purchase your tanning bed online. Simply visit a local dealer, where you can physically see and test the beds to determine which one you really want. Return home and fire up your computer – look for wholesale companies that are selling the exact same bed – at a considerably lower price! The bed should typically arrive partially assembled, and as long as you know how to use a screw driver, finishing the assembly should not be difficult at all.
When purchasing home tanning beds through a wholesale company, see about purchasing extra lamps for the bed – in bulk – at the same time. You will probably get a huge break on the price simply by making that purchase at the same time. Add some additional items to your purchase as well, such as a case of your favorite tanning lotion. Take advantage of all of the price breaks you can get!
