One of the most common issues with coin-operated laundry is opening a laundry coin box with a lost key. A laundromat’s coin box is thick enough to withstand amateur attempts to unlock it.
But here is our solution to ensure you collect your coins and your tenants can use your laundromat even when you lose the keys.
The Importance of Coin-op Laundry Boxes
At the end of the day, we want to ensure that these coins are always collected for you, the landlord. Now there’s an actual key, like many locks, that ensures it goes in and out.
These coin boxes, as you can see, are built really thick, and they are meant not to be drilled. That way, residents can’t drill them, illegally take the coins, and have an issue.
Opening a Laundry Coin Box Without the Key
One of our biggest issues is when these keys get lost. But the cool thing is if you look at the key’s back and front, there is a little code, its serial number.
We have learned to take note of this serial number, such as by taking a picture or writing it down. Using this code, you can avoid drilling the box if you lose the keys.
In addition, we ensure that if we take over a building and there is a set of keys, taking note of the serial numbers will be one of the first things we do.
There are instances where we have taken over a building, and the person doesn’t have the key to the coin box. If we can figure out the serial number, we can order the keys without avoiding the box.
We also know how to drill them with special bits, but that’s something we want to avoid.
But these are the small things that, as a property management company, we have the experience to go through and avoid unnecessary expenses for you, the landlord.
It’s just about being proactive and detail-oriented to get the information that you need.
If you or anyone else you know is looking for a proactive property manager that can guide you through avoiding issues such as opening a laundry coin box with a lost key, please think of Green Ocean Property Management: where you get more than a property manager, you get peace of mind.
