How much does a vending machine cost in singapore?
Prices for vending machines, depending on type:
(The prices I found on Alibaba's search page were quoted in USD, so I've converted them to SGD below - quoted prices are dynamic so they may eventually change)
If you're looking to start a vending machine business, you'l have to factor in additoinal costs like maintenance, inventory, electricity, rent, and insurance. These can easily add up to 50% or more of your start-up costs.
If you buy a vending machine from a local supplier, they'll usually provide maintenance services for you. If you buy directly from Alibaba, you'll have to find a maintenance firm to service your machines. You can look at a firm like Pruftechnik for servicing: https://www.pruftechnik.com/en-SG/Industries/Industries/Industries-overview/?
Commercial insurance will be important to protect your machines from fire, burglary, vandalism, liability from food poisoning, etc. You can purchase commercial insurance for vending machines online at https://www.coverprovide.com/
