(as well as a ton of other things) But I want to do this and also find out about details on getting equipment and any other details I should be aware of that I should take under consideration. :D

Just curious - how come you want to own a laundromat? Is it purely a business thing or something more? Just seems like an usual goal so just curious, that's all.

I think there are services that will provide and service the equipment for a cut of the revenue. That way you focus on maintaining the location, providing security and customer service and marketing. I'd start by looking in the yellow pages for laundry equipment. Some google research on owning them might also be a good idea to help you write your business plan.

I once had that brainstorm because of the lack of necessity for owner involvement. Of course, you need to make sure everything is running smoothly, maintain machines, etc. But otherwise, in a strictly coin operated facility, you just drop in to pick up your coins. Or so it seems. :D

I once saw one advertised for sale on Craigslist. If you are anywhere near one of the bigger cities, try that. It's under the "for sale" section, "business".
