If you’re a business owner, it’s time to start thinking about purchasing an ATM for your business – they’re a great way to attract new customers and encourage higher amounts of spending during each transaction. If you’re not ready to invest in a machine yet, or just need an ATM for a short period of time, consider renting an ATM. Renting one means you don’t have to stress about maintenance, repairs or making a long-term commitment. You can simply make convenient monthly or lump sum payments in order to gain all the benefits that an ATM can provide for your business. If you’re thinking about renting, here are five easy and helpful steps to follow:
- Do research.
It’s important to do research when you’re considering an ATM rental. There are usually different requirements for each individual business and their ATM machine, so it’s important to understand them before you decide to rent. For example, you should know beforehand which bank or other financial institution you would like to be a franchise of, and the fees you will have to pay for installation –in addition to any maintenance the machine might need. In most cases, these potential fees are taken care of by the company you rent from. While researching, look for a company that will provide this service. You should also be taking into consideration what type of ATM machine and model you want.
- Choose a company.
After researching, you should have an informed decision on what ATM company you want to rent from. Based on your extensive research, you should already know which providers offer which products, how their services differ from other companies and what you will receive from your rent package. From here, you can pick the company you want to work with.
- Ask questions.
Once have you picked an ATM provider, it’s important to ask questions. You should ask your provider about any hidden costs you may have to sustain while renting an ATM. It’s important to discuss this issue ahead of time, because a company could potentially scam you by offering off-the-cuff prices for purchasing an actual ATM to own, in addition to hidden charges, which will go way beyond the regular rent charges for a machine.
- Study reports.
Different ATMs have different types of benefits. It’s recommended to study the different reports on each type of ATM machine in order to fully understand the positives and negatives of each one before officially renting. It’s beneficial to discuss which type of ATM machine will be best for your business with a representative from the ATM company who can help make your decision.
- Sign the papers.
When you have chosen the right company for your business and ATM machine, it’s time to sign your lease. Now you will have all the tools necessary to help your business grow.
