New at Freelance work, question about D300 shutter life

I am working 4 days per week shooting and uploading automobiles for a web hosting company visiting 4 dealers per day shooting vehicles and uploading them to be edited and loaded on dealer websites its nice job for me

I started with a Nikon D5600 but dont need 24mp, wifi etc so I picked up a D300S for its bigger viewfinder, dual card slots and better handling , I misread the ad and thought it said shutter count was 22,000, its actually 220,000!!!, do I need to worry about this ?, I am planning to pick up another lower shutter count D300 (cheaper than the D300S) and retire the D300S as a backup, but how long do these Nikon shutter mechs actually last ?, I don't do burst but it will be about 23,000 shots per year

ie 10 cars per day @ 12 shots per car = 120 shots per day

120 x 4 = 480 shots per week

480 x 4 = 1920 per month

1920 x 12 = 23,040 per year
