There have been numerous stories in the news recently about vending machines being vandalized and robbed, so much so that it might actually be enough to stop people entering the lucrative vending industry. While the news is always disturbing, you also have to look at where the vandalism is taking place. You rarely hear about a vending machine being trashed when it is located inside a mall or other area that see’s a ton of traffic. Those are without a doubt the most lucrative spots for machine owners, which is why it’s important to think carefully about placement when starting a vending machine business.

There are people that will get into the industry by purchasing a refurbished machine online or from private seller in their area. The problem with going that route is that you are then forced to get out there and try and find places to put the machine. Depending on how much you paid for the machine, you may settle for a place that you know isn’t the best choice, simply because you have to start generating some income to recover your initial investment. This is where you have to ask yourself if the money you might save by buying from a private seller is worth the hassle of searching out your own location.
