Frequently Asked Questions

Below are the answers to questions frequently asked about the vending business. We always welcome questions, so feel free to call or text us your questions at (505) 980-6764. You can also fill out the form on our Contact Us page.

Question: I’m just getting started in the vending business. Should I buy new or used vending machines?

While new vending machines are always an option, they can be expensive (several thousand dollars, depending on the brand and type of machine.) If you are just starting a vending route, used vending machines are an excellent choice, as you can buy reliable used vending machines for a fraction of the cost of new machines.

Question: How much do your used vending machines cost?

Costs vary, but our current selection of used soda and snack machines can be seen on our Machines for Sale page.

Question: Can I move a vending machine myself?

While it is possible to move your own vending machine between locations, personal injury or damage to the machine is a real possibility, so we usually recommend that you hire an experienced company to move your machine. At Maximum Vending, we have the experience and equipment to move your vending machine safely, and our price is $90 to move a machine within the city limits.

Question: How many employees does a location need to have a vending machine placed?

A good vending machine location will usually have at least 40 employees, or a high amount of customer traffic. The vending machine should be places in a conveniently-accessed, high-visibility area.

Question: What do I get if I buy a used vending machine from you?

If you buy a used vending machine from Maximum Vending, we will show you how to load, clean, and maintain the machine. We will also demonstrate the vending machine operation, and will answer any questions you have after the machine is placed on location.
