Coin operated industrial washing machine

To be fair I didn't pay much attention to the make of the machines when I first purchase them so I may be lucky as you said.

I decided that there is no justification to go for a new machine and bought the washing machine and dryer from a second hand place. It is possible to find reconditioned appliances that looks almost as new.

Coin operated industrial washing machine

Hi Martin,

I own a 14 bed HMO and use a domestic washing machine and a dryer each connected to a coin timer (£130 inc. VAT each). The property has been occupied for over a year now and during this time I had no complaints from any of my tenants.

I am very happy with this arrangement so last week I installed coin timers on the washing machine and dryer at another 14 bed HMO that I own. These are also domestic appliances

The latter HMO has been occupied for over 3 years with no complaints on the arrangement. During this time I only had to replace one second hand (reconditioned) dryer with another (second hand) at a cost of £120 (the one I replaced wasn't so smart to start with).

I originally enquired about commercial machines for my HMOs but the cost was too high to justify it in my view. For the price of a commercial machine I could buy many good brand reconditioned machines.

Hope that helps.... Read More
