to Frequently Asked Questions
HOW MUCH MONEY WILL MY MACHINE MAKE?
A. If a potential supplier tells you how much his/her machine will make
- run away quickly. Why? Because NOBODY KNOWS how much a machine will
make. Revenue is determined strickly by location. Poor locations will
give you poor results. A great location...great results. One thing has
been proven...the only way a vending machine will make no money is by
keeping it in your garage!! Vending is about locations...getting them...keeping
them...and getting more and better locations.
WHAT IS THE PROFIT POTENTIAL?
A. A box of 850 Count gum (comes in a box of 850 pieces of 1" gumballs)
costs around $29...which is 0.035 per piece. That's 3 and a half cents!!
You sell a gumball for 25 Cents...that means you profit 21.5 cents per
gumball. Less approx. 30% commission to location owner (7.5 cents in
commission per gumball). That leaves you 14 cents profit per gumball
IN YOUR POCKET!! That is amazing profit!! Gumball vending is great!!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY MACHINE?
A. We ship our machines UPS ground and it takes around 4 to 5 days for
it to arrive (after UPS picks it up). The machine is shipped fully assembled.
Depending on the machine and color of the machine you want, it takes
between 2 to 7 working days for us to ship it. We maintain many machines
in stock and the colors available in stock change as orders are pulled.
The latest your order normally would ship is 10 days from order date.
On orders of 10 or more it could take a couple days more. On orders
of 50 or more we ask for 2 weeks from order date to ship. International
orders shipping times are determined by the speed in which we receive
the special coin mechanisms.
HOW MUCH WILL FREIGHT COST TO RECEIVE MY MACHINE?
A. Freight costs are determined by three factors:
machine do you want? The larger the machine the more it will cost to
do you live? We are located in Arizona...the further you are from Arizona
the more freight will cost.
- How many
machine are you going to buy? With volume purchases the freight costs
per machine is lower than shipping one machine.
Q. WHAT WILL I NEED TO GET STARTED?
A. Lets talk about what you WON'T need - then what you WILL need.
- You WON'T
need a warehouse or special office. You WILL need a garage, basement
or some space in your house dedicated to storage of gumballs and machines
you are preparing for locations.
- You WON'T
need to rent an office. You WILL need a home office; a desk, maybe a
filing cabinet, and once you get bigger you may want a business phone
- You WON'T
need a special vehicle to service your machine. You WILL need your personal
vehicle to service your machines. Obviously, the type of vehicle you
drive will determine how many machines and boxes of gum you can take.
DO I NEED A LOCATOR OR LOCATING COMPANY TO GET LOCATIONS?
A. In over 10 years of vending experience I have NEVER heard ANYONE
say ANYTHING positive about their experience with a locating company.
That doesn't mean that nobody has ever had a good experience, but
the thousands of people I have talked to and worked with have never
had a good experience. At Wizard Vending, we STRONGLY encourage you
to get your own locations...that is the real work in this business.
Anyone can fill a machine with gumballs and scoop out quarters. Besides,
nobody can represent your company and services as well as you. It
is important that you make the initial contact with the location owner
or manager. It will help you in the long run.
WHAT IS BETTER...BULK VENDING OR FULL SERVICE SNACK AND SODA VENDING?
A. If you want a challenge and to resolve complex problems then start
a Snack and Soda Vending company. If you want a simple business with
limited inventory, limited servicing, and simple machines, then bulk
vending is for you.
OPERATING a full service vending company is tedious and frustrating.
Inventory is heavy and difficult to control and the machines are complex
electro-mechanical machines that require expertise to repair. Bulk
vending is simple and the profit margin is much better than full service
snack and soda.
WHY GET STARTED NOW?
A. The longer you wait, the higher the chance that someone else will
put a machine in the locations you desire. Get started, buy machines
and start the growing and learning process.
Thank you for your interest in our excellent equipment! Thank you also for making the effort to communicate with us in English, if it is not your native language.
Besides selling to every one of the 50 United States, we have years of experience exporting our equipment around the world...Japan, Russia, Mexico, Costa Rica, Switzerland, Philippines, Guatemala we have shipped machines to most continents and over 40 countries. Our equipment can be set to take any currency and any denomination of coin. Most of the time there is no additional charge for international coins but sometimes there is an additional charge if the coin acceptor must be custom made.
To make your importation easier, we prepare all required international documentation and we have relationships with many international freight carriers...air freight and ocean cargo. Of course, if you are experienced in international transportation you can chose to have your equipment picked up by your carrier at the plant.
So if you are interested in just a few machines or complete containers (a 40 foot container holds 180 of the 4’10” Gumball Wizards) we are able to work with you.
Also, if you think you might qualify to be an International Distributor, please let us know and we can share the requirements with you.
Vending offers our volume customers assistance obtaining financing for
their machines. We can help you get a line of credit you can use to grow
your route as quickly or as slowly as you wish.
What do we
mean by "line of credit"? Depending on your current financial
situation you may qualify for access to an amount of money ranging from
$5,000 to $75,000. Since it is a line of credit, you are not obligated
to use the entire amount. Maybe you will start your route with 15 machines
and will only use $7000. If you qualified for a credit line of $25,000,
you still have $18,000 available for future expansion.
How do you
get financing? Send us an E-mail or give us a call. We will send you a
credit application by fax or in the mail. You fill out the application
and fax it directly to our lending institution. Our credit company specializes
in vending finance and they will evaluate your application and determine
the size of credit line you will have available to
you get financing, if you order 10 or more machines Wizard Vending will
also send you a Marketing Packet. The Marketing Packet contains information
that will help you obtain locations, give you ideas of potential locations,
help you control your business and provide you sample marketing material
you can use in order to obtain locations.
Wizard Vending is here to help you succeed. We are qualified to help you
because besides selling machines all over the USA and foreign markets,
we also have routes of hundreds of machines.
