The common comparison, card-operated laundry equipment versus coin-operated laundry equipment- which is best for your Miami multi-housing laundry room?

There is solid evidence why Smart Card operated laundry equipment is best in the multi-housing realm. Miami property managers and tenants alike can experience many pros of using cashless laundry equipment, including no more counting coins which in turn eliminates accounting stresses, reduces the risk of theft by eliminating cash-filled laundry rooms, and the best of all, property managers have access to choosing the most advanced laundry equipment for residents to enjoy.

Speed Queen® Smart Card multi-housing laundry equipment is superior in both categories of performance and durability, perfect for high-volume rental properties and large condominium properties in Miami. The following is a breakdown of the pros of switching to cashless Speed Queen® laundry systems in your Miami multi-housing property.

Eliminate Coin-Counting Stresses from Residents and Coin-Collection Hassles
In a coin-operated Miami apartment or condo, the laundry floor may be littered with dropped coins from tenants. Or worse, the underneath of the washers and dryers may be filled with loose change resulting from frustrated attempts of retrieving said coins. Your tenants become angry and upset because doing the laundry now equals losing money at the same time. Gift your residents the joy of using card-operated Speed Queen® washers and dryers. Residents will love the convenience of inserting their Smart Card into the machine and not being limited by the number of available mix coins in their pockets. Cashless operated commercial laundry equipment is operated by Smart Cards which are then reloaded at VTM (value transfer machine) kiosks placed inside the laundry or wherever you see fit.

Reduce the Risk of Theft in Your Miami Multi-Housing Laundry Room
A cash-filled laundry machine and ATM is a tempting target for thieves. Think about it, a coin-operated laundry machine is like a big white piggy bank just waiting to be cracked open! Reduce the risk of theft and vandalism in your Miami condominium’s laundry room by the eliminating the source of temptation. Speed Queen® card-operated laundry equipment works to keep laundry rooms safe and secure by only accepting payments by Smart Card, credit or debit cards. Although VTM machines are 100% safe and secure, property managers may choose to place their building’s VTM near a well-lit lobby area adjacent to the security desk for added protection.

Enjoy Advanced Technology with Smart Card-Operated Laundry Equipment
In today’s world of chip readers and simplified cloud-based electronic payment processes, carrying around loose change and dollar bills has become a nuisance. Top washer and dryer manufacturers have turned away from developing new coin-operated laundry machines and now focus on the advancement of card-operated laundry equipment. Speed Queen® manufactures world-renowned, top-rated Smart Card operated laundry equipment used in multi-housing properties across the nation. Keep your Miami condo ahead of the curve and appealing to residents and future residents by maintaining a modern card-operated laundry room.

Residences in Hollywood Beach

Sitting atop gorgeous golden sand and overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is The Residences on Hollywood Beach condominium, a chic 15-story condominium building off of Ocean Drive in Hollywood, Florida.

Steven Zamora of Atlantic Pacific Management is the property manager of The Residences and chose Aaxon for his community’s large laundry room retool and upgrade to stainless steel Smart Card-operated machines.

“My experience dealing with Aaxon since the beginning has been beyond spectacular,” says Steven. “From the contract negotiations to the scheduling of removing old equipment and putting in new, to the final completion- everything has gone smoothly!”

Housing more than 2,000 residents with 31 laundry rooms, Aaxon tackled the large-scale project quickly and efficiently.

Aaxon replaced the condominium’s current machines with high-end stainless-steel Speed Queen Quantum Commercial Washers and Dryers equipped with SmartCard technology. The machines will service the entire two-building condominium property.

“The equipment and technology they provided to the building are excellent, above the industry standard. Their commission split is very competitive,” Steven adds. “I highly recommend Aaxon for your laundry business needs.” Watch Steven Zamora’s video testimonial here.

The telecommunications industry says the upgrades are needed by 2020 to meet the demand for faster internet speeds, smart cities, driverless vehicles, instantaneous 3D downloads, the “Internet of things” where machines talk to machines, and more.

The battle between infrastructure needed for fast digital service and property rights may soon come to communities across Palm Beach County. Right now, it’s playing out in Tallahassee courtesy of legislation before lawmakers.

“It’s a ticket for multi-billion dollar wireless communication companies to come into a city and do as they please in city right of ways,” said Riviera Beach Councilwoman Dawn Pardo.

The brewing fight is over technological advances. First there was 1G wireless technology, for “first generation,” and as telecommunications technology evolved, 2G, 3G, 4G and 4G LTE came to be. Now 5G, a fifth generation network technology allowing greater connectivity at higher speeds for many more devices, is on its way.

To place the infrastructure needed for 5G service, a proposal pending in the Florida Legislature would limit state and local control of public rights-of-way where the 5G equipment is being installed.

You may feel lucky when it comes to the philosophy of “if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it” but Preventive Maintenance can actually save you more money in the long run.   Even when things seem to be running smoothly at your property, there’s always something you can do to head off potential problems. Here are just a few examples what should be on your list.  It’s much easier and cheaper to take care of something early on:   Trimming trees and bushes so they don’t interfere with buildings and utility wires. Maintaining bathroom caulking for toilets, sinks, tubs and showers rather than letting moisture rot the walls or floor. Inspect the roof and gutters for loose shingles, leaks and buildup to prevent serious water damage down below. Regular HVAC maintenance and inspections can reduce the risk of big emergencies due to neglect. Never ignore smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detector maintenance and schedule regular checks on them to make sure your property and your tenants stay safe and sound. Schedule regular visits by a pest control expert to keep your property free from destructive or invasive critters like termites, ants and mice. Failing to perform preventative maintenance and relying on luck to manage your property’s maintenance issues is sure to end up costing you more money and stress in the end.   Property Management Tips: Spring Cleaning, Maintenance and Information. It is time to begin thinking about and planning for summer. There is no better time to do so than the spring time! There are a few things that you can do as a property manager to prepare now for a smooth-running summer.                                          Renew Communication  Now is a great time to begin formulating a letter for your Owners and Tenants that describes all of the things that you will be doing for them as well as what they can do to make their summers as cool and uneventful as possible. Communication is key to setting expectations about what Tenants or Owners is expected to do, so get that letter out there in the next couple of weeks.   Tenants and Owners can help you help themselves by notifying you of any maintenance issues that may best be taken care of now rather than later. Things such as leaky faucets, stuck windows, and appliances that seem to be working a little less effectively than before are key items to look for.   Preventative Maintenance Now is also a good time to replace the batteries in smoke detectors as well as carbon monoxide sensors (if needed). Of course, the spring is an ideal time to change HVAC filters, Have your sprinkler systems serviced. doing so now also gives you a great opportunity to verify that the systems are working to prevent a problem in the future for the building floors or in the common areas of your buildings.     Stock Up On Sales You may want to begin stocking up on critical supplies like A/C filters, light bulbs and sizes, garbage disposals, various screws and fasteners, and other consumables like faucet aerators, water filters, shower heads, and water heater heating elements, if applicable. Ask your vendors if they have sales, if so get some prices for the work you will need.    Evaluate Workload People tend to move most frequently during the spring and early summer months, so you will typically find yourself using a lot of materials and supplies during this time of year. You may also find that your preventive maintenance routine gets put on the back burner this time of year because of all the move-ins and move-outs. Stay Focused. Try to refrain from making that mistake. In fact, you may want to consider hiring some temporary staff, just to help keep up with all that will be going on in a few short weeks. Line up your vendors, too, so that they don’t become a sticking point in getting new tenants moved into their apartments. and successfully finishing up projects on your maintenance lists.   Revise Budget You will need to set your budget and calendar for more carpet cleaning appointments, painters, paint and supplies, as well as general maintenance on Landscaping Clean Ups, Pool Maintenance, Tree Trimming, etc. There are always things you need to repair.   Time Management Additionally, your time will be tied up more, too, because you will be doing more inspections during this time, as well as all of the marketing to get new tenants and all that that endeavor entails: Things like interviews, background checks, more frequent deposits, more frequent and greater expenses due to all of the outside vendors you may have to bring in to get your buildings list completed as fast as possible. So you can also enjoy a great summer. Obviously, planning in the early spring for all of the activity that will ensue in May and June is time well-spent. If you don’t plan soon, you may find yourself scrambling at crunch time.   South Florida Property Management Association:   You can find Contractors, Vendors, and Business Members that can help you with your Maintenance To Do List.
