Considering Used Vending Machines

Posted by

Global Vending Group is an industry-leading reseller of used vending machines. Our goal is simple: To help you build your business by providing reliable, trustworthy machines at a fraction of the cost of new ones. That being said, the following should be considered when one is to decipher between investing in a brand-new machine or a used or refurbished one. The cheapest machine might not be the best fit for your business.

Aesthetic Appeal
Some used vending machines look like they’ve been through tough times. If you’ve ever used a snack machine in a cheap motel, you probably know what we mean. Customers are more likely to use your machine if it looks clean and new, so be sure that the used machine you’re buying doesn’t have too many signs of wear and tear. Global Vending Group’s used machines are checked thoroughly for aesthetic issues.

Mechanical or Electrical
Electrical machines are generally more expensive but require less maintenance. Mechanical machines are lower in cost but are limited to coin only purchases. Older used machines from reputable vendors will come with a satisfaction guarantee but remember that maintenance will be your responsibility, but we are there to assist you with free call in technical support. A newer used machine might be easier to deal with than an older used machine. If you’re comfortable with maintenance and simple repairs, an older machine might be worth your time.

Modern Functionality
The advantage of new machines is that they have the most modern tech. An older used machine, for example, might not be able to process credit cards, or might feature a dated bill reader that gives less consistent performance. Think carefully about your target customers and try to provide them with the most convenient methods for purchasing items. The easier it is, the more sales you’ll earn.
