A great place to pick up used machines is Craigslist and eBay. Also make sure to look in your local yellow pages for vending companies. Most medium sized cities have vending companies and they very often have used machines for sale that they are no longer using. One of the main issues though with getting used machines is keeping track of all the different product selections. Getting the product selection right is paramount to running a successful vending business. Thats why I suggest using a vending management solution so you can keep track of all of your different sodas in each machine.
Vending Miser on the other hand eliminates the hassle of unplugging the machine and eliminates the concern about shutting down a machine during is refrigeration cycle. It has been proven to save a significant amount of energy in various locations. Vending Miser requires no modification to the existing vending machine and can be used almost all soda machines. Vending Miser simply plugs in line with the soda or vending machines energy cord and the outlet. It has a motion/occupancy sensor (Passive Infrared Device) mounted above the machine and if no one is around for 15 minutes the machine will turn off the machine. But before shutting the machine down Vending Miser determines if the machine is running a refrigeration cycle and will not shut down during a refrigeration cycle.
Soda bottling companies often provide the soda vending machines free of charge. However you do have to sign a contract saying that you will only purchase the supplies for the beverage vending machine from this company which can cut down on your profits. When you buy from the company you will receive discounts such as one free case of soda for every ten cases that you buy. The downside to buying all the sodas and other beverages from the company is that you will pay full price for the supplies.
Finding the best machine that suits your budget with a high variety of flavors that are most liked by customers is very important; this is most facilitated with getting hold of surveys conducted by various companies. However a search engine like Google could also help get details of companies that do a lot of research and develop soda flavors that give one lucrative income.
