    yeoldeforest got a reaction from HeidiP in Is anyone renting their machine out   
    I have been renting for a few years now and overall it’s a pain but profitable.
     
    On the down side, you can give a beginners long arm class that lasts two hours or 20 hours and the results will be the same. Hand holding baby sitting and essentially doing everything but move the head for the renter. The reason is simple....lack of repitition and in alot of cases diminished mental capacity. It's a fact that the older we get the harder it is to push short term memory into long term.
     
    On the up side…you can charge more per hour than you get for doing it yourself.  Yes charge more. When you charge more you weed out the bargain hunters looking for a deal and you don't undercut your self or other professionals. Remember you are the expert and they are paying for more than a machine rental. Think of it as another aspect of the service you already provide.
     
     
    So, as others have said. Make a plan, execute it and don't sell your self short,
