What is Honesty box (Honor Box) Vending?

What is Honesty box (Honor Box) Vending?

What kind of vending option could you have for smaller business locations, with easy servicing and little to no upfront cost and maintenance for you as a busy vending box professional? One answer is an “honor box”, otherwise known as an “honesty box”. The honor box is a cardboard or plastic box and comes in different sizes. Larger boxes could have small bags of chips and even candy bars. Smaller boxes carry typical candies like York patties, smarties, lollipops, bite size candy bars, etc. The box has a cash compartment attached to it and people pay for the snacks based on an honor system – thus the name. This is absolutely the opposite of a soda machine, for example, where you are required to insert a certain amount of money before you get your item. With the honor box, it depends on the person to pay how little or high they wish to. Honor boxes are often found in restaurants, cell phone stores, lobbies, banks, or anywhere with a counter, etc.

Large Honor boxes or Snack Boxes are ideal for smaller companies that have 50 or less employees (not saying that a bigger company cannot have them either). It might not be practical for a smaller company to have a huge vending machine but an honor box would yield enough buyers to make it worth keeping it. It also takes up a lot less room, compared to many other vending machines.

Finding Quality Locations for Honor Boxes

One of the most difficult things to do in having vending machines is finding quality locations to place them. Finding good locations is not only time-consuming but it is also quite stressful because you might be calling business after business and not getting super great results. You want to get the most out of every single one of your honor boxes and an effective way to do that is by employing an honor box locator.

Utilizing a locator service might be the best thing you can do for your vending machine business. Unfortunately, there are quite a few vending locator scams on the internet with many unsatisfactory reviews which might seem discouraging. Here, at vendorlocator4u, we genuinely care about helping you find quality locations for you to place your boxes (check out our reviews on the right side of this website and on Facebook). We take care of finding your locations so that you can focus on what you do best. We have been in the vending machine industry for a very long time and had our own route for years.

Pay NOTHING in advance

Still not sure if our service is the best? That’s okay. You do not pay for our service until your honor box is accepted by the business and safely placed there by you (must be placed and paid with in 2 days). If there are any issues and they kick you out (rarely happens), we will take care of them because we care about your business. Also, if the location does kick you out with in 30 days, we replace it. We are here for YOU.

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!

We are the best when it comes to bulk vending locators.

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!"

"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."

"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!"

"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
