When to replace a Hot Drinks Vending Machine.

In today’s fast paced world, Hot Drinks Vending Machines can be a real blessing.

Relaxing with a hot drink, there’s nothing like it.
Especially when it’s been made for you by a modern vending machine.Hot Drinks Vending Machine

But, if you imagine your Hot Drinks Vending Machine looks anything like this inside, don’t you think it’s about time to upgrade to a new vending machine?

Although this is a lighthearted picture, there are a couple of more serious messages.

First there’s the obvious overworked, worn out internal “mechanics”.

As a hot drinks vending machine ages, it starts becoming less reliable.
After all, a vending machine consists of moving mechanical parts, just like a car.
And as the vending machine gets older, just like a car that’s done 100,000 miles, things will start to wear out.

Less obviously, we can also see that there’s mess and clutter around the inside of the machine.
Again, just like an old car, an old vending machine will be more difficult to keep clean.

A clean vending machine is a healthy vending machine!

How to know when your Hot Drinks Vending Machine needs replacing.

  • Are you constantly being called to the machine because it’s “robbed” someone of their money without vending a drink?.. Then it’s probably getting unreliable and needs replacing. (It may just need minor repair or adjustment, give us a call first!)
  • Are you always having to call out the engineer for small niggly repairs?.. Again, just like an old car there comes a time to let it go and upgrade to a new (or newer) machine, give us a call.
  • Are you constantly having to refill your vending machine?.. Your business may well have outgrown the machine. Call us for advice on a new machine which can handle more capacity.
  • Are you getting complaints that the hot drinks from the machine are “stale” or the ingredients are “stuck together” and won’t mix?.. This could mean that your machine is underused. Or there could be a problem with the boiler. Give us a call.

Hot Drinks Vending machines come in many different versions, depending on your requirements. They are capable of vending a mixture of coffees, teas, hot chocolates or just hot water.

3 easy steps to replacing your old Hot Drinks Vending machine.

  1. Choose a machine. (We know the choice can be daunting, so we can help you.)
  2. Choose your drinks. (Probably the easiest part.)
  3. Contact us! (Even easier than No 2!)

Why are there no coffee prices on our website?

Why don’t we show coffee prices for on our website?

We’ve been asked a few times why we don’t display coffee prices on the Douwe Egberts Coffee Pricewebsite.

Well, the international prices of tea, coffee, chocolate and all other vending products change on a regular basis, just the same as any other
commodity. Sometimes, very rapidly.

To a lesser extent, the same goes for all the machinery and hardware associated with vending.

We run a tight ship here at Red Hot Vending and we want to stay cutting edge with all of our product prices.
We don’t want to disappoint callers by telling them that the price on the website is out of date, and has increased.
Conversely, we don’t want to put off potential callers by being priced too high.

Hot Drink Refills – Cost v quality


Hot Drink Refills – Cost v quality.Douwe Egberts

Here at Red Hot Vending, we sometimes get asked for an extremely cheap price on unbranded hot drink refills.
Even though it could mean losing a potential customer, we always turn down these sort of requests… Why?

Because we are just not prepared to risk our reputation on unknown, untested products with no guarantee of any sort of quality.

In this life, you usually get what you pay for.

Ever wondered just what effect a poor quality cup of coffee could have on a blossoming business relationship?

We’ve probably all been there… Whilst visiting a prospective client, a new customer or supplier, there is always the obligatory social protocol of offer and acceptance of a hot drink.
While waiting for your drink, you fervently hope that your host only uses quality drink refills… Just like you do in your own business.

If a bitter, poor quality drink is offered, it could well tip the balance on any business decisions made that day!

Now, we aren’t saying that unbranded hot drinks are always terrible quality. But we do PG Tips quality hot drinkbelieve that to achieve CONSISTENT good quality a premium branded product, or at least a good quality generic product we know and trust MUST be used.

We don’t know about you, but we would much rather pay a couple of pennies more for a cup of coffee or tea, to guarantee a great drink every time!

So, if you want “cheap” coffee, we’ll regretfully have to turn down your request.

We will of course always offer you an unbeatable price on a premium or a good quality generic product.

Do I have to provide drinking water?

Do I need to provide drinking water for my staff?

Drinking water machine

Can’t I just ask my staff to fetch their own bottled water in to work, and save myself the hassle of one of those water machines? They always seem to need refilling with those big replacement bottles!

The Workplace Health, Safety and Welfare Regulations 1992 places obligations on you for the provision of drinking water for your workers.

Regulation 22 says:

1. An adequate supply of wholesome drinking water shall be provided for all persons at work in the workplace.

2. Every supply of drinking water required by paragraph (1) shall –
(a) be readily accessible at suitable places; and
(b) be conspicuously marked by an appropriate sign where necessary for reasons of health or safety.

3. Where a supply of drinking water is required by paragraph (1), there shall also be provided a sufficient number of suitable cups or other drinking vessels unless the supply of drinking water is in a jet from which persons can drink easily.

So, there you have it!
Yes, you must provide your workers with decent drinking water.

To avoid the large bottled water dispensers filling up your offices, you could just provide a sink area with a tap…

But, rather than just supplying a tap, why not go the extra mile for your workers and supply something a little better.

One of the best ways to do this is by having a good quality water chiller machine installed, plumbed straight from the mains supply along with a filter.
Your staff will love the clean fresh taste of chilled filtered water.

And while you’re at it, why not install a hot drink vending machine?

Cost shouldn’t be an issue… Nowadays, these machines can finance themselves.

Call us or get in touch to ask how.

Free Vending Machines

Free Vending Machinesfree vending machine

If you’ve been looking around at different options for vending machines, you’ve no doubt come across the “Free Vending Machine” offers from various suppliers.



You’ll have seen things like…

  •     “We offer cost-free snack and drink vending machines.”

  •     “We offer a free vending machine to all our customers.”

  •     “All our vending machines are supplied on a cost-free basis.”

  •     “Our aim is to provide the equipment on a Free Of Charge basis.”

  •     “Free Vending Machines with no rentals or management fees to pay.”

  •     “FREE Equipment.”

  •     “Free Loan Equipment for all customers.”

  •     “We effectively offer our machines on a free of charge basis.”

  •     “We have supplied free drink machines to many businesses.”

  •     “We supply your free coffee machine along with the best coffee.”

  •     “A free coffee machine will boost the morale of your employees.”

Apparently, they’re all FREE, FREE, FREE!
But are they really?
Of course not!

If you look carefully at these type of deals, you’ll usually find something like this…


*Subject to Agreed Minimum Vend Levels

“In order to service and maintain your machine on a free* basis, you must agree to minimum usage levels. If you do not reach the agreed usage level, you will be charged the difference between your usage level and the agreed usage level.”

And there’s the kicker.

Your FREE vending machine actually… isn’t!

You must buy a minimum amount of products to qualify for your “free” machine.

If not, you’ll have charges to pay!

Your “free” machine is actually financed by inflating the price of the refills, normally by around 50% or more. AND you’ll have to sign up to buy products for at least a year or longer.

Here at Red Hot Vending, we don’t work like that.

Why pay 50% extra mark-up on your refill products? Just ask us and we’ll arrange for you to OWN a top quality vending machine and pay LOW prices for your refills.

Another advantage is that unlike the “free” machine agreements you won’t be required to keep buying your refills from us. If you find refills at a cheaper price elsewhere (highly unlikely) just go ahead and buy them.

Call us on free-phone 0800 413559 or Contact us.

Save money with a vending machine in your business.

Employees waste your hours and your money making drinks.

Employees can and will stand around for hours in the office during the working week… making drinks.

You could designate an office junior for this task, which will cut down on the general chit- chat around the kettle or kitchen area, but even at minimum wage rates your losses could run into hundreds of pounds every month.

You must act now to save money!

It’s a fairly straightforward message…

With our vending machines starting at only 75p a day and the cheapest refills on the market, it’s a complete no brainer to save money and buy a vending machine from Red Hot Vending…
