Hey everyone, I am a total newbie and I am looking for all the advice I can get. I am also located in Canada so I don't know if that will change things.
I currently have a pretty secure job that I can climb the "corporate ladder" but I am looking for some income on the side. So this brings me to my first question unattended vs attended.
I know attended will make more money, but is it even worth it to go unattended? I'm guessing attended locations do WDF and that is one of their main selling features. For the owners who are running unattended how often do you check in? Do you have a janitorial service, or anyone else that checks in for you?
I know breakdowns will happen, but how often are they big breakdowns and not fixable? If I do have to buy new machines how much do they usually average? I have seen 700 bucks but that seems cheap to me. What's the average length of warranty? I have read 10 years which seems really good. What is the average lifespan of the machines? It every 2-3 years machines are being upgrade or worked on?
A lot of the locations I am looking do not have statements. Is there a reason why they don't provide statements besides asking for more then it's worth?
I know I am missing a lot but I will follow up with more questions.
