I know what you are thinking… Why would home game room collectors want to buy vending machines for there home game room? Maybe it’s a flash backs to the movie “BIG” where Tom Hanks has a soda machine in his apartment. What can I say, there is just something about having one in your game room!
We have a large group of arcade game collectors looking for these. Granted, not all of them are looking or one for there home. But when they are condition has a lot do do with the price! These machines went through quite a bit on location. From soda spilling inside of it, to thousands of hours of there compressor running trying to keep the unit cold!
The ones that have been refurbished are always worth more. Rebuild or new compressors are extremely important and costly to replace! Shipping just to get them worked on is about $400 alone! Then you have to pay for parts and labor! Before you know it you have paid well over $800! These machines can become quite costly to repair and fast!
The man hours that it takes to really get these thing back looking good, is almost crazy! But as a collector, we enjoy preserving them and having them in our game rooms. If you are looking to sell your Soda machine, please submit it using the form to the right.
