A smart customer of ours who is a keen operator recently upgraded his stacked dryers. The dryers were only eight years old. The benefits of upgraded equipment early like this are many:
- You are operating under warranty more. If you replace at 8 years and 5 of those years were under warranty then you are only paying for parts for 3 years.
- Service costs rise as the equipment gets older. You eliminate that cost by upgrading quicker.
- Newer equipment intimidates potential competitors. Would you rather put in a laundromat next to a run-down laundromat or a laundromat with shiny, new equipment?
- Customers like the new equipment.
