Vending Question – Location Moved the Vending Machines

Vending Machine QuestionsWHAT DO YOU DO IF A SITE MOVES YOUR MACHINES’ AND DON’T TELL YOU. IT LOOKS LIKE NOTHING HAPPENED TO THEM. THEY WERE MOVED DOWN A LITTLE.

Vending Rules Answer:

So long as they didn’t damage the machine – nothing. This is not that unusual. Often we suspect some kind of “foul play” if we find our machine moved slightly when none exists. Have you considered that maybe they needed more space or simply someone just liked it better in another spot.

My only real concern is that if they move it #1 someone could get hurt and they might try to come after me legally and #2 they could damage the machine slightly. As a quick aside, I’ve NEVER had either one happen in all my vending years.

This is why it is important to cultivate a good relationship with your locations. Sometimes I’ll mention that if they needed the machine moved I would do it; saying that I don’t want “one of them” getting hurt moving my machine. That way I know what is going on.

P.S. – Be aware though that if they move your machine more than once in a year the next move might be out the door. Make sure you talk with them to find out the problem. If they are concerned with space offer to get them a smaller machine if they can “reserve” the space for you.
