  1. Thank you to both of you angrychris and NYcandyman. I appreciate any information given I am an absolute newbie to vending. I’m just trying to soak in as much info and do my due diligence before starting
  2. Hi poplady1, i am located near Disneyland. Thank you some other people have recommended those companies too, but I will look into those companies as well. Have you heard of the vending machine king? He is located very close to where I am. Thank you for all the tips. I will definitely keep them in mind when I start. Thank you again
  3. Thank you for the advice moondog. Yeah a lot of people have told me to find a location first. So I will definitely be doing that. Youre right after searching online I found a lot of people selling used equipment. There is also a good amount selling equipments already placed at locations too. But many have told me to be wary of that too. I just have to continue doing research and see. Once I get everything ready on the business end I will start hitting locations and see how good of a sales person I am to acquire locations. Thank you again for the info I have learned a lot from everyone so far. Any other advice would be much appreciated.
  4. Thank you for your feedback southeast. I would prefer to have a machine where I can upgrade to credit card reader so I will definitely be looking for the models that have that capability
  5. So I take it the 167s are the better models out there
  6. Thank you orsd. I just contacted him again and he said the prices he gave me are actually for refurbished machines not used. And he that he has used machines That he is selling arleady places at locations too. But thank you. Now I kinda know price ranges to look for.
  7. Thank you southeast treats. I’ll take this in to consideration when I go see the machines. What do you usually check for when buying used machines? I’ve read in other post that I should obviously check if the machines vend properly. Check if it gets cold for beverage machines. Make sure coils turn in snack machines. Check bill validates. And coin dispensers. Should I be checking for anything else? In your opinion what snack machines are the best?
  8. Thank you angry Chris. To be honest I was wasn’t planning on buying this route. I just wanted some insite on how to gauge how much a route is worth. 42k gross for 39 machines doesn’t sound good to me. On another note I have a person in my area selling some used machines. I haven’t seen them yet but wanted to see if the price is right. I haven’t made any offers yet but of course I will try to get it for less then what he is saying if everything is in working condition and it’s a good deal. Royal 804 multiprice coke branded for $1075 AP 6600 for $750 vendo multiprice Pepsi branded $975 AP 113 for $1000 AP LCM for $1100 national 147 for $1100 national 167 for $1990 thanks in advance
  9. Thank you very much southeast treats. He was asking 49k for the route and for spare parts and van. I messaged but never got a reply. But that can be due to it being the weekend. I will wait a bit longer before I try again. I’ll try to get as much info as I can. But for now I’m looking into used machines like everyone suggested. Just need to find a resource I can use to figure out which machines are worth buying and for how much. I do want machines I can put credit card readers into. Thank you for tips on locations too. I’m still in process of creating the business entity and logos,business cards, website ect..... I will start looking for locations once I get that done. I’m not in a rush I just want to do this right. Thank you again for the info I appreciate it very much
  10. Thanks angry Chris. I totally understand that I’m taking a risk going into this industry with no knowledge. I was just making a broad statement when I was saying extra 1k a month. Any amount of extra money is good. I’m interested in this industry also because I can start off small without risking a lot of my money and just see where it takes me. I’m sure everyone in here felt the same way at some point when trying to start out. I do appreciate everyone’s honest and straight forward answer though. It’s very refreshing to see open and honest discussions and I look forward to learning from everyone in here
  11. AZ I totally understand that. I was just making a broad statement. My main point of saying that was I don’t mind working hard and learning. Honestly anything will help. Also that’s why I am on here. Just trying to learn from people already seasoned in the business, not trying to predetermine anything
  12. Yeah I totally understand that. I am looking to make some extra money on the side to supplement my income now and at the same time I wanted to do something I can call my own rather then just get a second job. If I’m able to grow this into a legitimate business then that would be awesome and at the same time if I can get 10-20 machines and make an extra 1k a month that would help too.
  13. I will definitely give the book a read. Thank you
  14. Thank you NYCandyMan. I will consider looking in to gimballs as well.
  15. Thank you Anacapa I will definitely keep that in mind if I am ever in that area. Are you on Facebook? Always great to make new friends in the industry.
