Before purchasing a machine
There are a lot of factors involved before you decide to go in for a second-hand machine. First, decide the type of vending unit(s) you would like to get and figure out the location(s) you want to install it at.
It’s also important to know that there is nothing wrong with buying a used machine as long as it works well. In fact, you can often buy used machines that have had all of the essential parts replaced with brand new components.
Advantages of buying a second-hand machine
There are many advantages in buying a second-hand machine. Probably the most important advantage is that it will cost quite a bit less than a brand new machine. And because you are saving money upfront, you will recover your initial investment cost faster and start earning you profits sooner than those who start their business with brand new machines.
Also, when you buy a refurbished machine instead of a new one, you will save a lot of money which can be invested in expanding your business further. So, a used vending machine can be a real boon to you and your new business.
Is it a new or used machine?
Sometimes you can even find a used machine for sale that was never used. This can happen when the owner decides that they are not able to run a vending business for one reason or another.
Or perhaps the owner is planning on relocating to another city or state and instead of carting the unit along with him, he might think of selling it. Hence, a used machine can be in perfect working condition or simply need a minor part or two replaced and can help your small new business save a lot of money when it’s just starting out.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when you are looking out for a second-hand unit:
– Choose a machine which is consumer friendly. A complicated machine might make the customer think twice about purchasing anything from your machine.
– Study the market before purchasing a used vending machine. Otherwise you might find out all too late that the used machine is priced way too high.
– Check that you have purchased the right type of machine. If you have plans to sell snacks you don’t want a cigarette vending machine.
– If the machine is already installed somewhere you might want to find out if people are buying through at that location or not.
– Always buy the machine from a reputed seller. You may end up with less than you bargained for if you purchase a vending machine from an unknown seller.
– Check each and every function of the machine. See if the coins and bills are accepted by it properly and that it dispenses the correct products selected.
– Buying a unit from a company may give you an option of a payment plan. This could be very flexible and easy on your wallet.
When you follow all these important details, buying a used vending machine will save you money and be just as good as good as buying a new one.
