Unlock the coin box

Hello All

I got an offer to buy all the washer and dryer in an old mat. The ex-owner walk a way so now the landloard want to get rid of all the old equipment. The mat has 11 tall single (not stacked) old gas dryer speed queen and 10 more SQ washer. The condition is unknown. I got an offer at $2500. The problem is none of the machine has key but all still in the old mat that were lock down. All of the coin box is locked. What is the best way to go about getting all of this coin box unlock ? I've my own warehouse near 2 big apartment building. I'm thinking of putting all this equipment in the warehouse and operate it. What is your take on my idea ? Please advice.

LOL, Jonathan, you mean we won't tell the entire world how to get into our coin boxes or this guy who may actually be looking to rob a particular laundromat?

anyone who would walk away from a coin operated washer would do so with the coins and the coin box, or they would provide the keys to the new owner.
elseways- if you're not a thief, then you are a landlord and you screwed the l-mat owner out of his space and/or equipment, so now you are justly screwed by the equipment. congrats.

I would only hazard to guess he would plan on using these for a laundry service but then why not just by opl machines designed specifically for that industry.

Also, why would this guy "actman" or what ever get an offer to buy laundry equipment, specially if he isn't even in the industry to begin with.

There is one reason to use coin-op washers in your opl setup.

Not so sure, this could be a genuine request. I once purchased lots of equipment at a sheriffs sale from a bust laundromat. There was more coin in the boxes that what I paid for the equipment. The guy who really cleaned up was my buddy who bought the changers. He paid about $500 and there was over $1500 in the changers.

It sounds like this is old junk and the operator either walked away or it was seized by the landlord.
