How much do vending machines cost?

Vending is a great business. I started my own full-time vending business several years ago. With that said I just want to warn you that there are LOTS of Biz-Opp salespeople who will promise you that this is the easiest business in the world. Of course they are trying to sell you $25,000 worth of equipment. Never buy from these guys - they are all rip-offs. You can start in this business for LESS THAN $2000 dollars, easily.

The last point I want to make is that this business does take time. If you are looking for this in addition to your current jobs you may not have the time to properly service your route. If you are looking to replace one or all your jobs then start small and build from there.

As far as how much vending machines cost; the answer to this question depends greatly on the type of machines you need and whether they are new or not. I run a route with lots of different types of machines. The best answer I can tell you is what I do; I only buy used machines - you get he best prices. I'll list the prices I pay for used machines.

Bulk Candy Machines - New $350 Used $100
Snack/Soda Combo Machines - New $5000 Used $500
Full Sized Snack or Soda - New $3000 Used $500
Spiral Gumball Machines - New $1500 Used $100

I hope this information helps!
