When you are thirsty while walking down the street, what do you do? It’s likely that you pick a coin from your pocket and insert it in the vending machine, and voila! A can of soft drink or a bottle of water pops out from a machine. While you are getting what you want, someone out there is having a vacation while earning lucrative profits from customers’ spare coins. Wouldn’t it be nice if that person was you?
Buying a used vending machine entitles you to a 100% cash-only business. You are the boss of your own business and you get to decide what your vending machine will sell. Once your business starts rolling, you are the only person on whom the failure or success will depend on.
Start your vending ventures and look at this checklist of things you need to consider in buying a vending machine:
- You need to check how easy or hard is it to manipulate the machine and get the product. Remember, customers are spending their coins at a vending machine for convenience. The easier the machines are for the customers, more appealing it is to them. Pick those easy-to-use machines when buying a vending machine.
- Know what types of product(s) can be stocked in the vending machine. If you are planning to sell products like chocolates and candies then don’t buy a vending machine for bottles and cans. You will just waste your money in buying them because you cannot use them, for sure.
- If you are short of capital, you can buy a used vending machine. When you are going to purchase a used vending machine, make sure that the price of the used vending machine you are about to purchase is way less than the price of a new vending machine.
- When looking for a used machine, you must check whether the coin and note receptacle and validator are updated.
- Go for energy-efficient machines as they will run almost 24/7. You can earn more profits when you have smaller in electric bills.
