When purchasing coin-operated washing machines, there are a number of factors to consider. The intended use of the washing machines plays a large role in determining which machine will be your best choice, as do speed, capacity, security, price, potential profitability, and other considerations.As the owner or property manager of an apartment complex, college dorm, hotel, or other multi-housing property, your customers want to be able to do their laundry in a quick and efficient manner, so the speed and capacity of the equipment are of primary concern to you. By balancing all the various factors you can find the best coin-operated washing machines for your particular facility.
Some coin-operated washing machines have features that can directly increase the profitability of your laundry room, such as energy efficiency, capacity, and technology. Commercial Laundries will help you customize a solution that best suits your laundry room requirements. Theft is often a concern when providing coin-operated washers for tenants. Lack of on-site supervision can tempt thieves, so it is important to take counter-measures to protect your investment. Before purchasing a coin operated washer, pay attention to how the coin boxes are secured, as poorly secured coin boxes can provide an easy target for thieves. While the outright stealing of and from coin boxes is not a problem at all facilities, the more insidious theft of free wash cycles is widespread and can negatively affect your revenue stream.
Some of the older coin-operated washers have known vulnerabilities that unscrupulous users can exploit to completely circumvent the paying mechanism, allowing them to activate the wash cycle without having to put any coins in at all. Other vulnerabilities allow customers to activate the washer using slugs or lower valued foreign money. To eliminate this problem, some of the newer commercial coin washers now have tamper proof functionality, which prevents potential customers from obtaining free wash cycles.
The right commercial washers and dryers make all the difference in coin-operated laundry rooms, whether at an apartment complex, college dorm, or other pay-per-use laundry facility.
