Ice Vending Machine Success Stories

Good job on the install of my new Ice Vending Machine. Great people to deal with. Chris and Kylie were always very responsive to my questions. Delivery was on time and professional.
Thank you Chris and Kylie for my new venture.
I did months of research looking at every ice vending machine on the market. After going to the factories, looking at machines in the field and talking to salesmen and owners, it was clear that The Ice Depot was the only way to go. Other machines are made of steal that will rust or complicated computers and sensors that shut your machine down for no reason. (if your machine ain’t producing you ain’t making any money). Others had melted ice dripping on electric motors. Most other machines had 3-4 motors and multiple moving parts.
The Ice Depot is the way to go!!
