Vending-machine manufacturer All Brands Vending Resources Inc. has released the “Storage Supply Depot,” a vending machine designed to sell packing supplies and other retail products to self-storage customers. The machine is constructed to withstand bad weather and vandalism, according to the source. It’s also energy-efficient and compliant with Americans With Disabilities Act standards.
“We are excited to provide self-storage facilities and their owners with a new profit center,” said Bill Fankell, sales manager for All Brands. “The Storage Supply Depot will allow self-storage owners to maximize their packing-supply sales in a cost-efficient manner.”
The machine is capable of dispensing locks, storage bags, tape and other supplies. It’s equipped with dual-temperature zones and includes a refrigerated area for cold drinks. Customers can pay with Apple Pay and Google Wallet in addition to cash and credit/debit cards, according to Vending.com. Other features include a programmable LED display for customized messaging, and a standard alarm that sounds when the machine is tipped or opened without authorization. It comes with a free bolt-down kit.
The company is offering a promotional “starter kit” for self-storage operators that includes “best-selling packaging products,” the source reported.
