Quality Issues With Vending Machines
If you are planning to have your own vending business, the very first thing that you should be thinking about is machine quality. It is so because most of the vending machines that you get in the market get easily broken into and are very difficult and expensive to repair. It is really a surprising thing that most of the companies in the U.K. typically opt for Grade B and Grade C machines and Grade A machines are a rarity there.
Grade B machines are typically all metal and surely offer some strength and durability but its biggest flaw is its design. The paint outside is easily scratched and rusting is a very common problem. What is more, the paint inside corrodes easily and might result in contamination of the product. And if the temperatures rise, there is every chance that the candy might melt inside the machines.
Talking about Grade C or all plastic vending machines, it is not at all durable like the Grade B machines. Grade C vending machines are prone to breakdowns at alarming regularity. The worst performer turns out to be the plastic coin mechanism which is perhaps the most used part in any vending machine. But the biggest problem is that gumballs or toys can't be vended by Grade C machines, which is perhaps one of the biggest segments of vending industry. And you can't actually have Grade C vending machines for high-end locations.
All this discussion might have made one thing clear that you need a judicious blend of metal and plastic. You need the strongest metal to ensure strength and stability while plastics of the highest quality such as polycarbonates that are shatter proof. If your vending machine can't provide both these features, it is not worth having. Metal vending machines are obsolete while plastic vending machines tend to fill the coffers of the manufacturers at the best.
The best option in front of you is Grade A vending machines. Grade A vending machines is a well thought out blend of the features of Grade B and Grade C vending machines. As such you won’t ever have to worry about your products getting contaminated by paint or your coin system failing every time someone tries to use it.
It is a fact that one of the biggest reasons why people actually make a mess of vending business is due to substandard vending machines. It is one of the primary reasons for vending machine owners losing their vending locations. The one basic rule that you should always remember in this industry is that vending is all about machines. As long as your vending machines are running your business is running.
