Sunbed Rentals: How Much Does It Cost To Rent A Sunbed?

Zuleika Boekhoudt By Zuleika Boekhoudt   •     •   3 minute read

Sunbeds have become increasingly popular in recent years due to the instant tanning it provides. It's a profitable business opportunity, but it's not wise to go in blind. It's imperative to know the costs involved. In this article, we'll take an in-depth look at the cost of running a sunbed, including electricity usage, maintenance, and repair costs.


Factors that Affect the Cost of Running a Sunbed

Running a sunbed can be a great business opportunity, but it's important to understand and consider the factors that affect its cost. 


Electricity usage

Electricity usage is one of the most significant factors affecting the cost of running a sunbed. These devices require a lot of power to operate, so the cost of electricity can add up quickly. The power consumption is based on the wattage of the bulbs and the length of time the bed is in use. A higher-wattage bulb will consume more power than a lower-wattage one, and the longer the bed is in use, the higher the electricity bill will be.


Renting a more energy-efficient sunbed or switching energy providers can reduce costs.


Maintenance and repair Costs

Another factor to consider when calculating the cost of running a sunbed is maintenance and repair costs. Sunbeds require regular servicing to keep them in good condition like any other equipment. When you rent a sunbed at Helionova, you don't have to pay for maintenance and repair. So that's a cost you don't have to worry about. 


However, there are other costs involved, like insurance. And on top of that, you would need to check if you have the correct power and sockets before Helionova can make an install. You can discuss this with your electrician once you choose a sunbed.


How much does it cost to rent a sunbed?

If you need more time to decide whether to buy a sunbed, renting one might be a good option in the meantime. Here are some average rental costs:


Rental costs for new sunbed

Helionova offers a wide variety of new sunbeds to rent. The price to rent a brand new sunbed starts at just £50.00 + VAT per week.


Rental costs for pre-owned sunbed

Helionova also rents pre-owned models that have gone through a thorough maintenance check - by our in-house engineers - and have new tubes. Helionova rental sunbeds range between £20.00+ VAT to £80.00 + VAT per week, depending on the rental duration.



Renting a sunbed is an excellent option for those who want to have an additional income stream. But like any other business venture, it's important to look at factors that can add to the cost of running a sunbed. Ultimately, it's essential to do your research and calculate the costs involved
