Hey guys and gals, I have a quick question I want to run by you all. I am thinking about starting a side venture to my bulk routes. I am looking to see if there is interest out there for machine refurbishing. We have been in the business since 1956 and have learned some pretty cool tricks over the years. If this is something you may think would be viable please leave me a comment. I am just curious on whats out there.
I am new to the vending business. I purchased a company with about 30 customers, some have a snack machine, some soda, and some both. Most of all my soda machines are dixie-Narco, except the ones that are in Deli Combos. Here is my first challenge. I have more machines than customers. My extra machines have been stored under tarps, outside for about a year now. I am basically picking them up one or two at a time. Then dropping them in my warehouse. My concern is the soda machines. These things are disgustingly dirty. Prior to their arrival at storage, I run them through a coin op car wash. Not wanting to harm them, I wash them but not enough. Does anyone have some advice on how wet I can get them? Or what needs to be covered up so I can really hammer them? It would sure make life alot easier if I could store them clean. Some, make that all of them, need work and it is nice to work on something that is clean. Plus, I would lie to have them ready deploy-able when the time comes. Two tips I have found while cleaning the fleet. I use 1, 2 3 Novus ( TapPlastics) system when detailing the plastic fronts of the machines. It really makes them look nice, and it is pretty dummy proof so you cant mess it up. Also, I have found that using a spray wax is great for a super quick clean while on the customers site. LUCAS makes a really great one in a blue bottle for less than $10 bucks that shines real well, and it has a pleasant scent also.
