Installing your bulk vending machine at it’s new location
Category : Uncategorized
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!
