In a market littered with pedicure spa manufacturers, now more than ever it is extremely important to do your homework prior to purchasing a pedicure spa. Adding or replacing pedicure spas can cost $1,500 or upwards of $100,000 depending on the number of locations and type of salon or spa. Any way you look at it, purchasing a pedicure spa is a large expense and several key items should be considered prior to making your decision.
#1. Quality – The pedicure spa industry is not unlike every other industry, you get what you pay for. There is no substitute for a pedicure spa built in the United States utilizing major components from United States suppliers. Remember, when you buy on price, you buy twice.
#2. Customer Service – Every company in every industry has problems. Its how a company handles those problems that set them apart from all the others. Make sure you work with a U.S. based company that views customer service as an integral part of their business.
#3. Warranty – All manufactures claim to warranty their spa salon products, but do they really? After you read the “fine print” or “exclusions” you may find a warranty is not a warranty at all. One major manufacturer’s warranty reads: (for parts under warranty) “the customer shall bear all charges incurred for the shipment to it of a replacement spa or components or parts.” Make sure to read all warranties prior to making a decision.
#4. Design – Do you really want plastic pedicure spas that look exactly like the pedicure spas in the salon down the street? Set yourself apart from the competition! Look for a pedicure spa with an original and unique design.
