How to choose a Bulk Vending Locator!

Choosing your bulk vending locator

A Bulk Vending Locator can be your best friend when it comes to finding the perfect locations for your bulk candy machines, gumball machines, honor boxes and honor snack boxes. When you use the right locator service they will locate businesses that will treat your machines well, look for longevity, foot traffic or break room, and use a time tested formula for finding new homes for your bulk vending machines.

The bulk vending locator service that you choose should be able to use a program to and experience to find the right locations for your candy machine or bulk vending equipment in general. I personally don’t use an in person locator due to the fact that you have to pay at least half up front to even get them there and in my experience there are a lot that just drop your vending equipment in the first spot they find and move on to the next. Now, they may not be like that! But guaranteed they require at least half up front!

You will want a locator that knows where to look so you can make the most amount of profit, not just in the first month or 2 until the upper management comes in and has it removed, but long term meaningful income that stays the course to make you money month after month! I have my first location from 12 years ago that I have only repaired 2 doors on it! It’s not a home run every month, but steady income that never fails! That’s a smart investment in my opinion!

Just remember, your machines aren’t going to make you money in the garage, living room, or worse yet in storage where they are costing you money!!!!

Money Made Vending!

Choose a locator that will answer all your questions with satisfactory answers and not beat around the bush about the subjects. It is tough to say how much locations will make, nor will anyone with experience give you number, but the bulk vending average per month is over $7.00 per head. Now, depending on the equipment and product that varies, but that’s the average.

A good bulk vending locator service won’t take months to find you locations and have lack of communication. They will stay in contact with you when you have questions and answer your questions same day. The locator service should be able to get your locations in a timely manner as well. This doesn’t mean it won’t take a week or 2 to find your locations, you might have a more saturated area, but weeks on end and no results is not OK.

An honest locator will often let you go to the location and see if you approve of the vending locations before you install the bulk vending machine or gumball machine,  and better yet, doesn’t accept money up front or before you install your vending equipment! The vending locator is responsible for making sure you are happy with their choices. It will be just a matter of time before you are enjoying the profit! Before long you will have a lucrative business you can rely on!

Above all else, make sure to look up the businesses on Google and check their ratings on Google! Don’t just look at the people they give you for references! Anyone can give you a list of people that say they have done good. Do your research!

Honor Snack Boxes!

Honor Snack Boxes

Snack Honor Boxes are a great way to bridge the gap in locations that aren’t big enough for a snack machine and yet have enough employees to support a Snack Honor Box.

Honor Snack Box

Honor Snack boxes can be a great way to build your income on your route or a supplemental income to your job. Who knows, maybe you will decide to use Honor Snack Boxes as a way to build your way to being fully self employed!

Honor Snack Box Locators

Honor Snack Box Locators will find locations for your snack boxes one of two ways. Either in person, or by telemarketing. I personally don’t feel that an in person locator will get the best locations for these. They will have a problem getting into some locations that would be very lucrative for you because they will miss the manager or decision maker.

The other way of finding locations for your snack boxes is by phone – calling. I have experienced this as the way to get the best locations that will have the least amount of loss in your honor boxes and provide the best profit!

Honor Box Locator Fees

No matter what type of locator you choose, make sure that you don’t pay any money up front! If you hand over money up front you stand a very big chance of them not completing the job to your expectations! You might sit twiddling your thumbs for months before the company delivers, do not make that mistake.

Your box locator should secure the locations for you, allow you to deliver the honor box and THEN pay them! This will make sure that your money is WELL SPENT!

Money Made!

 

Honor Box locations can be tricky, so leave it to us. If you’re looking for a locator for  your bulk candy machines or honor boxes, you have found the one you need! If we can help in any way including answering any questions, please contact us at: rodney@vendinglocator4u.com

Bulk Vending: Step 1 to Make More Cash!

The first step is making sure your candy machine is clean!

After you have your equipment, the first thing is to make sure that your machine is clean! One of the most important parts of vending is presentation! If it doesn’t catch their eye, or look good, they will use another machine by another operator!

Cleanliness is very important! You would be surprised how many candy machine operators don’t clean their equipment! Take a walk around town, or drive around and look at all the gumball machines, double head candy machines, triple heads, and even the pro’s with big rack systems! You will notice quick how well most bulk vendors clean their machines!

OR NOT!

Should I really take the time to clean my machines? Or even my honor boxes?

YES! It makes a huge difference! If you clean your machine to look like it did the day you dropped it off every time you service it, you will make way more money than the person that just gives it a quick wipe down and moves on.

If you are in a vending location with competition, you will notice quick how well they take care of theirs! The best thing you can do is go the extra mile to make sure your’s is top notch!

How to clean your candy machine: I personally use Micro fiber wash cloths and a natural spray citrus cleaner. Always spray into the cloth, then wipe down your gumball machine or candy machine with the towel. Don’t spray the machine then wipe! You won’t be able to get it all and it may drip down on a surface that the candy will be on (that’s why I would use natural).

After you wipe the whole machine down (including stand), look at the floor around your machine. If you see anything, pick it up and toss it in the garbage. I promise you that the location owner will notice this!

Even the area around your machine will be credited to you!

I know this may seem common sense, but sometimes it’s better to cover all the bases so none are missed!

Honor Box Locator!

Honor box locators are few and far between, more so than bulk vending locators. I’m not sure why, but I do know that the best locations seem to be restaurants. Every thing else seems to be hit or miss!

The thing about Vending Locator 4 U is that our primary target is restaurants for your honor box locations! We have found these to be the most lucrative for the honor box owner or route owner.

Honor Box Chips Candy Locators

Restaurants take more work and more calls to secure the location, so we make less performing the service, but the customer’s smiles make it all worth it. We don’t mind to make a little less and provide amazing support as opposed to “just doing business”.

Honor boxes are a great way to start out, especially to learn if vending is right for you! It also works great to fill gaps in your area!

Let’s say you have a route of candy machines like gumball machines, double head candy machines, and Uturn vending machines but you’ve maxed out on distance. You don’t want to expand any further, but you could fill in your area with Honor boxes! They are a great way to supplement your income! Some have even made it full time using a majority of honor boxes in their routes.

If you want to order locations for Honor boxes, or you want bulk vending locations and honor box locations, we are the best honor box locator on the net! You need a location, we are the locators for the job!

Installing your bulk vending machine at it’s new location

If your not a seasoned candy machine operator, or if you have never delivered charity vending machines/ Honor boxes before, then the task may seem to be a little intimidating. No worries! When you have a good bulk vending locator, it’s easier than you think!

I won’t focus on how others do it, or how not to deliver your candy machine. Here is how it goes:

We first send you a email with the new bulk vending locations in it which include; Name of location, address, phone number, contact person (usually the manager that gave permission), hours of operation, and other notes that the location has requested. Often times there is no extra notes, but may include: No gum, or has another machine with…….. , in back for employee’s, or out front for customers. Rarely, there may be a specific day or time. I try not to do this.

After you receive a new bulk vending location in your email, it’s best to deliver it as soon as possible! Every day that goes by is an opportunity for another vendor to get in there or the manager starts to forget that they gave permission for a candy machine!

It  doesn’t make money sitting at home or worse yet storage!!!

When I go to install a vending machine, I try to wear either khaki pants or newer jeans (with belt), polo shirt, and decent shoes. The idea to remember is your representing your business. How a person portrays themselves reflects heavily on how long they get to keep the location!

When you walk in introduce yourself, shake hands and ask for the person that is listed on the email that gave permission, if they are not there, just let them know that they approved the candy machine for your charity and you are there to install it.

Then you just take it where they asked you to! Simple as that!

Whether you have bought a single head gumball machine, double head candy machine, or a 8 selection Terminator, always try to take it in with you! If it’s a big store, then go in first without it to figure out where it goes, then go back out and get it.

 

Hopefully this helps in getting your machine placed! Have a great day!

Bulk Vending Locations Worth having?

Category : locating

What bulk vending locations are worth having?

That’s a good question! Some feel it’s only high traffic area’s that work for candy machines. Not completely true!! I’ve had vending locations with only 3 employee’s that did better than a location that had 80!
It all depends on the type of vending equipment you have from a gumball machine, double candy machine, triple head, Uturn 4 selection, or an 8 selection Terminator candy machine.
Not only does the type of candy machine you have matter, but how many employee’s for the TYPE of location. Yes, there is many criteria to compare! 

This is only 2 of the type’s of criteria that we have to take into consideration when looking for your locations.
An honor box locator, candy machine locator, or bulk vending locator (however you want to call it) needs to have a conscience first, care about your future second, their reputation, and how they interact with everyone.

How to choose the best bulk vending locator

Category : locating

How to choose your bulk vending machine locator:

Whether you run only bulk candy machines, gumball machines or honor boxes… you can benefit greatly from a locator. The problem is, how do you choose one to trust your money with? More importantly, how do you trust someone with not just money, but your future? The future of your business can hinge on sound financial decisions, and your vending locations are your prime factor in profiting from this industry.

There are many aspects to consider, I’ll touch on a few of these today:

Does the vending locator have, or have they ever had their own vending machine route?

If not, then how can they know what really works in your machines? How do they know what it’s like to deliver your candy machine or honor box to a location and not be able to install it? Or how do they know the way it feels to spend hard earned money on bulk vending or candy machines just to have them making such a small return that it doesn’t even pay for gas?

At VendingLocator4u.com, we have had and operated a bulk vending route with many types of machines. From U-turn terminators, double head candy machines, triple head, and even single head gumball machines! We still currently run our route and it grows and gains every day!

Learn more about us here!

How much deposit should you pay a bulk vending locator?

Most require minimum of 1/2 down or all up front! Why?! Most company’s require money up front or even half down because they pay their staff hourly or hire a telemarketing company to find the locations for them. Most of the time they have never had a gumball machine, serviced a double head candy machine, refilled an honor box, or even a U-turn 8 selector! The problem with this is that they can take as much time as they want to work on your order and get to it when they feel like it!

Stop! Stop paying your hard earned money up front for you vending locator! Here at VendingLocator4u.com we don’t require ANY MONEY UP FRONT!  That’s right! We don’t get paid until you have a chance to INSTALL YOUR CANDY MACHINES FIRST!

If you don't trust us, simply see what others are saying!


"I found Rodney when I was at a very bad place financially and with our vending business.

Not only did Rodney help get us the locations we desperately needed, he has gone above and beyond to help me personally with staying positive, he's provided bulk distributors, resources for book keeping, how to get more efficient, ways to make the most of our machines, and things to do to keep the ball rolling in a positive direction.

I could go on forever and still wouldn't be able to say enough about what a great person Rodney is, what a change he's been to my business and life, and how glad I am we found him... I just wish it would've been years earlier!"
 ~Christina


"Me and Rodney were in contact for a short period of time before I decided to try him out. I started with a small order but changed it to 35 machines. The day after he pulled the list for my area I had 5 locations sent my way!  

The best part about how family vending works is that I can place the machines before I pay! So if there is a problem, I can bring it to Rodney's attention right away and not have my money tied up until it is fixed.

He also offers a one time relocation of any machines where that location is a dud. Truthfully I was not to into the idea of paying someone to locate these machines and driving the money I have invested up but I am very glad I did. These guys have been fast, professional and on top of every email and I will continue to use them. Thank you so much Rodney and I hope that people see how good of a job you do through this."
~ A vendiscuss.net user from Maine


"Very refreshing telemarketer experience! I highly recommend he and his staff. I'm over 30 locations now with Family Vending and I am pleased with results!"
~ Eli


"Obtained some mint box locations for me and followed my request for restaurant locations.  Drop off went smoothly and I placed all beside cash register. Thank you Rodney for providing good locating services!"
~ Vendor for over 8 years in North Carolina


"I've worked with 4 locators to date and Rodney is the only one I would recommend. He does everything over the phone and got us locations quickly. I don't know why it's so hard to find more people who locate who are as honest and hard working as he is but I wish all of my experiences were as good as the ones with him!" - A user from vendiscuss.net
