Default Embroidery Machine Suggestions

So I am having a very difficult time finding someone reliable and local to do embroidery so I am thinking of getting a single head to take care of the little orders I get which are not very complicated, mostly lettering. My question would be mainly about digitizing software. Is it really necessary? I mean their are people and websites that digitize logos and what not for cheap.

Since I dont understand the whole embroidery process I am asking what should I look for? I would love to get someone to digitize a logo, hoop the item, plug in a usb and hit stich.

Its important that you actually get an experienced person because of the challenges that you bound to face with incompetent workers. They usually do silly mistakes like omiting to oil the machine which would cause you heal of sums of money.
Online you can have digitzer who would do for you the job. You don't need to have a stationed digitizer, though the employee needs some ideas of some basics.
Hope this would help you in some way.

Question: Will you be able to get parts for a machine that is no longer supported. This machine is older and parts are getting scarce. I owned a Toyota 860 a few years ago for a short while and trying to get parts and help on how to run it was very difficult.

I'm not sure but I think the 830 has specific software to run the machine unlike other machines where you only need a floppy disk to input the design and the software is built into the machine. Something to check into. Will it be compatilble with the computer OS you run?

Who is nearby to service it if needed? I found there weren't too many people out there to service the older ones.

Toyotas are workkhorses but these are questions I would investigate if I considered buying an older one. Price isn't always everything.
