well you can. just say your going to service it and bring it back and then dont bring it back. Give them a call if you feel like it and say you went out of business or something. If one of my machines isnt doing well I just tell them it isnt doing well and needs to be moved. I dont offer anymore explanation than that. Its just not doing well.

With your numbers, you have some really good spots and some really bad ones, what you dont have is a bunch in the middle so it seems pretty clear cut to me.

It does suck to walk. Its easier to walk in and try and get a location than it is to pull out of one. Its like reverse rejection or something. Trust me, these guys are business owners, they understand, I usually say 'well we tried it, nobodys really using it so, were gonna relocate it but thank you for letting us try'. 

When you have a 100 locations avg. $33 a stop your gonna be happy, you will have built a business worth $$ and you will have done it all on your own.

Yea, When I first started, I used to do the old "I'm gonna clean it and bring it back" but you're better off just telling the location that It's just not performing. Most will understand and some won't even care that you are taking it.

If you feel the need to explain, just say that in order to generate the most revenue for your chosen charity, you are forced to relocate any machines that fall below a certain income level.

Your locations will appreciate your honesty and view you as a professional. If you lie and say you'll bring it back then don't, They will remember that lie. If they ever see any of your machines elsewhere they will be reminded how un-professional you are as a business person. Besides, You never want to burn bridges in this business. Having a good relationship with other business owners in your area is a great thing.

Seems like the vast majority of your top performers(minus the bar locations) use PMM (M&I and skittles close second).  Maybe you should try switching these in to your poor performers?

P.S. That new icon is just creepy....

  I know I need to relocate soo many machines I am just getting hit hard by so many of the goo places going out of business or what ever.  All most all of my location I got from Ron Davis are gone or duds .  I have one more machine in my garage I need to locate before I can start tweaking the other ones.  I am sure once I get the one in my garage place I will then get my machines out of the 2 businesses and then have more to place so who know's when I will be able to tweak my route.  It took me all day to locate 1 machine I placed that one in a hall with a lot of other business's there it is call De Care so lets hope that does good.  I can not stand locating it sucks I offten am stumbling over my words. I hve tryed to keep all my machines in the same area so I end up doing a complete circle , but I see this is no longer possible and I will have to go into a new town which will cost more in gas and take more time . :X

If anyone could put my average up that would be great kids are whinning and I need to go get some chez for the hubby's football guys night in tonight.


                       I started with 35 machines 1 was stolen so that makes 34 2 are in business's that are now closed that leave me with 32 machines out right now . There is only totals from 31 machines here .....

This is true; the application is totally web-based not one that is downloaded and installed.  There are a few advantages to this set up.  First, as mentioned above, not installation is required.  It runs on any operating system (i.e. Mac, Windows, etc.) as long as you have access to the Internet.  (Note: the application is fully maximized with Internet Explorer).  Second, you can log into it from any computer, not just your personal computer.  This gives you more accessibility.  Third, any updates, additions, etc, are immediately available to all of our users.

You can sign up for a two month free trial if you would like to test it out (use the information above so that you get the discount if you continue your service).  Also, if you would like to see what it would look like once you have a lot of information in there, go to www.vend-trak.com and click on the "View Live Demo" image on the right side.

I've also put some Hints and Tips for Vend-Trak in the Special Buys forum under Vend-Trak.  Here is the link: http://www.vendiscuss.com/forums/view_forum.php?id=22

Happy Vending!
