Do you supply sunbed goggles and tanning creams?
Eye protection is supplied FREE
of charge and will be delivered with your chosen sunbed hire model. Please be aware that our sunbed goggles are provided free of charge for a very important purpose. The sunbed goggles are necessary whilst using a home hire sunbed as they protect the eyes from any possible damage. Wearing eye protection is not only recommended for total eye safety whilst tanning on a sunbed indoors but it is also a requirement under UK law. Coco Sunbeds offer an extensive range of sunbed creams and tanning lotions to use when hiring a sunbed. Sunbed creams enable you to get a faster and long lasting tan. Tanning creams including: accelerator , bronzing, tingle and moisturisers can be purchased when ordering your sunbed hire or can be purchased from the delivery team. For additional information please see Sunbed Creams
Can the sunbed be set up upstairs or downstairs?
Any of our sunbed home hire units can be installed either in an upstairs or downstairs room. As long as there is a power supply located nearby we can install our sunbed hire models in virtually any indoor room, including conservatories and garages. Our sunbeds come in a specific number of sections and are assembled on site by our delivery drivers. The canopy, double lie down and vertical sunbeds require 1 x 13 amp socket. The vertical sunshower sunbed requires 2 x 13 amp sockets. Please note for safety reasons it is not possible to use an extension cable on any of our sunbed hire models. Each sunbed mains power lead needs to have its own individual 13 amp power socket.
How much space do I need in order to use a home hire sunbed?
The canopy range of sunbeds require approximately 1m2 of floor space. The main advantage of the canopy sunbeds is that they can be folded upright and stored when not in use. The canopy sunbeds are supplied with a hydraulic stand with 4 castor wheels which makes moving and adjusting the sunbed over a bed or lounger very easy. The vertical stand up range of sunbeds also require approximately 1m2 of floor space. The double or lie down sunbeds require approximately the same space as a small single bed (2m x 1m) Please Note: The vertical stand up and double lie down sunbeds cannot be moved once installed so it is best to make sure you ask the delivery driver to install it in a location that will be free for the entire hire period. Our delivery team will advise and install in the best position to suit your requirements. See also our Sunbed Hire Fleet
How long should I spend on the sunbed?
Full tanning instructions and maximum tanning times advice will be provided with your sunbed when delivered. Each sunbed is fitted with the very latest 0.3 technology sunbed tubes which fully conform to the latest UK Sunbed Legislation. Typical tanning times vary from 3-10 minutes, depending upon your skin type. You can learn by visiting: Skin Types & Sunbed Exposure Times.
What should i wear when using the sunbed?
As most women choose to wear a bikini on holiday (and men shorts!) it would seem natural to use the same clothing when using a home hire sunbed. If you do not mind having tan lines (as you would when you come back from holiday) then this seems to be the most common option. Alternatively women can simply tan on the sunbed in their bra and knickers and men in their underpants or boxer shorts. Women often choose to pull down or loosen the bra straps so as not to leave strap lines. This is a good option if you are planning a special occasion or evening out and you would be wearing a strapless or backless dress!. Alternatively you can choose to tan on the sunbed completely in the nude. The convenience of using a sunbed hire tanning unit is that you are using the sunbed in the privacy of your own home. The only thing you need to remember if you are going to use the sunbed in the nude, is to make sure you protect your most sensitive parts, as the skin is much more sensitive in these areas.
What if i want to extend the sunbed hire period?
If you would like to extend the hire of your sunbed, then we would greatly appreciate you letting us know as soon as possible. During peak season we have very limited availabilty and an indication that you wish to extend the sunbed hire period would help us avoid disappointing any future hire customers.
What happens if the sunbed on hire should develop a fault?
All our sunbeds are fully checked and tested prior to delivery so it would be very rare for one of our sunbeds to develop a fault. You can rest assured that if anything should go wrong our delivery team will aim to rectify any faulty within 24 hours or supply you with alternative sunbed.
