How Much Does It Cost To Lease A Sunbed For Your Business?

If you're in the tanning industry, you know that sunbeds are a profitable business opportunity. They're a popular and convenient way for customers to get their desired tan without the hassle of going to the beach. However, purchasing a sunbed outright can be expensive. Thankfully, there’s another option: leasing. This article will explore the costs and considerations of leasing a sunbed for your business.


The Cost of Leasing a Sunbed

Leasing a sunbed can be a significant investment for a tanning or beauty salon, hairdressers/barbers or gym and it's important to carefully consider all the factors that can affect the cost. These factors can range from the lease terms to the type of sunbed. By taking these factors into account, you can make an informed decision about which sunbed to lease that meets your unique needs and budget constraints.


The Type of Sunbed

The type of sunbed you choose will significantly impact the overall cost. For example, tanning beds that have additional options, such as air conditioning and wellness features, will typically cost more to lease than basic models. Moreover, you can choose to lease either a new or pre-owned sunbed.


The Lease Term

The length of your lease term will also affect the cost. Generally, the longer the lease term, the lower the monthly payments. However, you'll also be committed to using the sunbed for that period, so choosing a term that works for your business is important.


Maintenance and Repairs

Another cost to consider when leasing a sunbed is maintenance and repairs. Depending on the terms of your lease, you may be responsible for covering these costs. It's important to factor in these expenses when calculating the overall cost of leasing a sunbed.


How Much Does a Sunbed Cost to Run?

In addition to the leasing costs, you'll also need to consider the ongoing expenses of running a sunbed. By factoring in these expenses and creating a comprehensive budget plan, you are prepared to cover all the costs associated with running a sunbed and continue to provide quality tanning services to your clients. Here are some things to keep in mind:


Electricity Costs

Sunbeds can use a significant amount of electricity. You need to factor in these costs when budgeting for your business. Your electricity costs can vary depending on your location and the type of sunbed you have.


Tubes and Replacement Parts

Sunbeds require regular maintenance, including replacing tubes and other parts. Talk to the sunbed supplier about the services and fees included in the lease agreement.


Examples of Sunbeds to Lease at Helionova

If you want to add sunbeds to your business, leasing can be a cost-effective solution. To give you an idea of the costs and features of sunbeds available for lease at Helionova, here are a few examples:


New sunbeds

Investing in new sunbeds can be an effective way for businesses to attract more clients and improve their services. However, the cost of leasing new sunbeds can vary depending on the type — lay down or stand-ups — and the additional features. You can expect to pay between £200 and £300 per month to lease new sunbeds.



Pre-owned sunbeds

For those on a tight budget, leasing pre-owned sunbeds can be a viable alternative to purchasing new equipment. The cost of leasing pre-owned sunbeds can be significantly lower than new ones, with prices ranging from £100 to £300 per month, depending on the quality and age of the equipment. By leasing pre-owned sunbeds, businesses can save money without sacrificing the quality of their tanning services.



Leasing a sunbed for your business can be a great way to offer tanning services without the upfront cost of purchasing a sunbed outright. However, it would be beneficial if you considered the costs and ongoing expenses of leasing a sunbed. By doing your research and budgeting accordingly, you can find a sunbed that works for your business and your customers.




How long are sunbed lease terms?

Sunbed lease terms can vary but typically range from 12 to 36 months.


Do I need to purchase insurance for my leased sunbed?

Yes, you will need to purchase insurance for your leased sunbed to protect it against damage and theft. With the Helionova lease agreement, you will need to purchase insurance for your leased sunbed to protect it against damage, theft, and public liability. Your current insurer should be able to add this to your existing policy.


Can I lease multiple sunbeds for my business?

Yes. The cost will depend on the number of sunbeds you lease and their individual costs.
