  1. Past hour
  2. 93 snack/drink machines full time always looking to grow. average 7.5% growth each of the last 6 years
  3. State farm 1mil liability about $450 year
  4. With machines like that I wouldn't pay much more than what you'd pay a locator to do for you, machines like that are usually available for 20-40 bucks in my experience if someone says it makes $350 to $500 it probably does $250, I've seen it Over and over offer $1500 and if your comfortable go up to 2K otherwise pass my opinion FWIW
  5. Well, I received the following message from IP: Sorry if that doesn’t help. But I did keep researching, and this may also be of benefit. On Chrome, click more. (3 dots in the upper right corner.) Select Settings from the dropdown menu Click Show advanced settings. (Toward the bottom of the screen.) Under Privacy, click Content Settings Make sure Allow local data to be set (recommended) is selected. You could also choose Manage exceptions, and add vendiscuss.net, and select Allow. That might force Chrome to keep you signed in. And now I research Safari... but first I eat.
  6. Thanks very much for the reply. Would you mind describing this riser you mentioned and tell me where to get one? BTW, what is this machine set up for now? Thanks
  7. I had a small machine shop last year. It was a killer account. They were almost all guys in the 25-40 range. Killed energy drinks. Monster was solid, Rockstar was a dud, but they requested Grape NOS. I could barely keep it in the machine. I was making just about $1 per can profit on it, since it was cheaper than Monster.
  8. If you get a riser for the oak, it will vend a single 1" gb. As for the other machine, good call on avoiding it. Can't recall the company name, but the machine isn't reliable. It has a nice stand though, so if she drops the price enough is worth buying for that. $25-30 tops.
  9. Today
  10. Look for a Victor coin mech.
  11. 31 snack/soda machines Along with 165 bulk machines Still part-time, but the goal for the end of this year is to go from working my full-time job and vending on the side to growing my vending enough to only work part-time. End goal is to be vending full-time by the end of 2018.
  12. I have a little over 100 machines and it is full-time.
  13. It's a USI, and it is likely to be a USI 3015A. It also appears to have a coinco BA in it. That's not bad for $300 if everything works. I would check that the spirals aren't too small.
  14. I purchased this on Letgo just because it was neat. I need a coin mech for it but don't know what brand it is. Can anybody help?
  15. 38$

    Thinks for all the info guys
  16. 112 machines full time
  17. Good evening,

    Do you still have pricing discs For Seaga vending machines?

  18. I'm not sure. It doesn't spin backwards now but it free vends because the coin crawl or whatever doesn't catch it when it rotates. I'm guessing it was forced to turn or maybe needs a new prawl or what ever it's called.
  19. For sale for $300, though not sure if it's American or not? Sent from my XT1254 using Tapatalk
  20. And while we're at it, she offered me this for $75. I didn't know what it was and I thought that was too much so I turned her down. Anyone identify it? Thanks
  21. So I'm at my new charity, St Vincent de Paul. My wife volunteers there and my parish runs it so it's on the up and up. Anyway, they have a used Oak single with no lock that they sell me for $25. I think I ordered the right lock on ebay. So what kind of wheel is this? I'm new to this vending thing, only have 7 machines so far, but this wheel is obviously not for my 850 count gumballs.

  23. Thanks for the info Yes I am interested in keys if you have them. I will have the number from the lock for you in a day or so. I got what I thought was a good deal on them....didn't think about the key at the time of purchase .....Sometimes the deal looks too good...lol
  24. Yesterday
  25. I tried rockstars but they did not sell
  26. Related question. Rockstar vs Monster. I've had 2 locations request Rockstar so it's what I've been stocking, but I'm wondering if Monster would do better? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk
  27. Country companies, 1 mil liability, everything about $400/year.
  28. Could the machines be fixed up a little bit and could you raise some of the prices of the items to 75 cents or 50 cents. The negative about this deal is each machine isn't taking in a huge amount of money. The upside is that the places still have the machines in the locations and I would guess that a huge part of the reason they are doing low in sales is the owner is ignoring them which means there is room for improvement. If he says his machines aee taking in 550 a month I would assume he is taking in 350 a month. If you offered him 2 grand you would be playing about 60 bucks a machine. if he counters with 3500 maybe go up to 2500.
