  1. Gaines is just another biz-op who sells sh*tty chinese vending machine place them in bad locations with a few employees and sell them for $$$ We have a company here in Quebec that does that too. http://vendingroute.com/en/partnerp.php It's funny because they try to make you believe that if you buy vending machines you will work just a few hours and spend the rest of the time on your new boat or travelling around the world
  2. I have a De Larue Mach 3 and I am really satisfied with it.I had a Cassida C200 for a long time before I upgraded and although it is made in China it never let me down
  3. From the album Car dealership

  4. Isn't Fortune Ressources just another name for some piece of crap chinese made machine sold via biz-op scams ?
  5. I see a lot of those here in Montreal.You actually would need to pay me money to operate one of those chinese turds
  6. I know for sure there is '' lost vending machine '' hunter here in Quebec.They also started being more picky about the quota for vending operators ( It is 1.6 case per machine/per week ) Lets say I have 10 machine owned by coke I need to buy 69 cases a month from them.A lot of people here dont respect that number and coke started actually pulling off vending machines of locations.They warn you before and they are actually patient,but they have limits
  7. Make sure that the machine was not pulled off a location without Coca Cola Company knowledge,because if it is the case the machine is still owned by them.It can be easily looked up with the equipment #.
  8. I think it wasn't meant to be.The guy is too lazy to tell you what type of machine there is on location ? Maybe he was also too lazy to properly keep track of the sales.
  9. I don't know which part is faulty but if I change both of them I should get somewhere.The connector board with the blades located on the tray and the one that is located in the middle of the machine.Any of you guys has both parts ?
  10. I am located in canada but I am sure we could arrange something for shipping,I would pay you back the fees.
  11. is this part still available somewhere ?
  12. That's the thing my harness is smaller and the plug is smaller also.I abandonned my idea of changing my tray set up and I just want my machine to work like it used to
  13. Hello, I am going mad crazy with a problem I have It all started when I removed the D tray which was configure as 5 large products and wanted to change it for 10 candy spiral.Little did I know I was about to open a box full of sh*t I wouldn't be able to close.So I went to Brokerhouse Distributors our official Crane retailer here in Canada.I bought dividers,motors,spirals etc...But I wasn't able to complete my project because the harness I needed is discontinued.My harness is connected to a circuit board to the back of the tray which connect to a series of metal connectors.I need 2 harness of 5 connection each but can't find those anywhere. I went to put back the tray like it was originally but it still wasn't working.When I set up the trays I get the first one right ( AAAAA ) and (BBBBB) and the C...When i get to D it golpher up the whole thing and reset the other trays.I went into test motor and I always get 'D'D'D'D'D' the bracket means the motor is missing or the tray is not recognized...So I removed all the motors on the D tray and tried them on E.The motors are working.Then I removed the circuit board where the harness connect from the F tray,which was working,and put the D board on F tray.I was expecting F to not working and D to work...But surprise,the two of them are not working anymore !! I unplugged the machine...put the boards like they were before...and both trays still don't work.I spent 4 hours trying over and over to program the damn trays but I left before I break something.I will call back Crane tomorrow,bring some contact cleaner next time I go there,but do any of you guys have an idea of what I should do ? Any way you can make a hard reset on Crane machines ? I ran out of ideas.Thanks !! Included is the picture of my fully working machine before I decided to f*ck up the whole thing
  14. I stay away from any business who sell silver/gold/platinum package.It is marketing rubbish.Typical biz-op golpher
  15. Hello,just some tips I want to throw out there.They are basically all based on the same principle,social engineering. 1.Contact large office space location company and find one the owner,the director of tenants services or something like that.That's where it gets difficult.Basically you will be asking him to refer you to some of his customers.But you have to sugar coat it the best you can and not talk about what he can do for you but what you can do for HIM.Scratch my back and i'll scratch yours.If a 200 employees company is moving in he can in a subtle way ask them if they need refreshment and snack.You place the machines.You give the first month in sales.That's an easy few hundred bucks for him. 2.Contact companies that do esclusively OCS.Often a customer will ask for vending services which they dont do.So try to be friends with them.Buy a coffee machine from the guy.Talk with them.I did amazingly well this way I met a Van Houtte licensed operator ( GMCR ) and this guy get all the coffee machine contracts in downtown Montreal.Bingo.Being friends is not just about money..I offered a money counting machine to a OCS guy and he was really happy of course.He finds a big customer,that's my win too. 3.Get to know as much operator in your area.The reason is about the same as the precedent.I bought a tassimo machine from a full line vending guy and he pleasant to talk too and I saw the opportunity.His company is on the southshore of montreal and he gets lots of call because of referencing on google.Refer me,I will remember you.One week after I got a call from the director of a small call center,too small for the guy apparently.I placed a CS12 there.It makes around 200$ a month and I am really really happy,investment was almost nothing.Cs12 goes for what ? 500$ ? So do as much networking you can.Here in quebec almost everyone near montreal goes to the same places to buy their stuff and parts or machines.And know the market is different in Usa but I am sure you can find customers the way I did
