Having a vending machine business can really be costly at the start. It is a form of a business that needs enough upfront investment. Most of the cost goes straight to obtaining the vending machines.
Drink vending machines, when taken into consideration, can be a good and affordable start to grow a small business, especially starting by purchasing used can vending machine. Used can vending machines are easier to start, with so many benefits you and your customer can enjoy. These machines are easy to operate and come in different sizes that you can choose from, depending on your target customers and capacity. Refilling your stock is also quick and simple. And the best part is that the products in your drink vending machines have long shelf life, which saves you from extra costs on spoilage.
Get a jump on your business with a used can vending machine and use these 3 easy tips when buying a used can vending machine.
1. Decide what type of beverages you want to sell. Although all your products are in can forms, even a can vending machine is product-specific. You need to identify what you want to vend (such as coffee, soft drink, water, root beer, or fruit juices), which also includes the sizes of the products before deciding the machine to buy.
Customers also love it when they have the freedom to select the products. Think of buying a can vending machine that is not brand specific. By doing this, you’re offering your customers products from different customers and attracting a wider scope of consumers.
2. Consider the type of business you want to place your can vending machine into. Think of the size of the building and the population of the employees, students, or by passers that type of business has. You might decide to get a small can vending machine if you’re placing it in a small business, and of course, have a bigger can vending machine for larger businesses.
3. Buy only from reputable suppliers. A very cheap used can vending machine will have a lot of technical problems that you cannot see. As a guide, vending machines keep good resale value and that means a good quality used vending machine will only be slightly cheaper than a brand new machine. The used machine will have little to no warranty whereas a new one will have up to a 3 year warranty.
