In Topic: Price list

17 April 2008 - 05:07 PM

It surprises me how different pricing can be between the US and Canada.

You can't buy a can of pop *soda* from any machine for less then 1.00

Generally Chips are around the same price 1.00

and Bottles are about 1.50-2.00

Sorry. Left out Candy. Generally Chocolate Bars go for 1.00 to 1.25ish

In all honesty you can't rely on others to help you figure out your pricing. I'd suggest driving around the local
area and seeing what other vendors are pricing their stuff for. Or using the 2x 3x formula if that works for you.

Would you have a company/site to suggest for finding generic signs?

In Topic: Vendo Model 511?

15 April 2008 - 10:15 PM

The Vendo I got is an older model 264-148.

The graphics on the door are crap, that the last owner put in it, so I don't know where to find graphics for the face of hte machine.

I paid 100.00 for the machine, its in good working order, and they ended up leaving 30.00 in change in the machine...so the whole thing cost me 70.00.

The shape it's in now, I wouldn't probably be able to place it anywhere, but if I clean it up and find new graphics...I might be able to place it.

Have you considered putting an LED strip in the top of the machine?

LED's will last 100x longer on batteries then flourescent lighting would.

Thanks for the quick input jbl.

The reason I'm considering it is two fold really.

The price is reasonable, and the seller is actually a local refurbisher...that I wouldn't mind beginning a rapport with.

I have 4 days to decide....so I'll hemm and haww till then...
