Placing automatic lockers on the beaches, we repeatedly faced the problem of lack of electricity in remote parts of the beach. Naturally, the best solution in this situation is the installation of solar panels. What, by the way, we have already started practicing. However, there is another solution that does not require additional costs – battery operation.
Here is the story of the Italian entrepreneur, who has a small souvenir shop in the center of Rome. Watching the tourists, he concluded that people are a little depressed while walking as they carry travel bags and heavy backpacks. They always have to pull them or look for a place to leave. Therefore, the entrepreneur Jamie had come up with idea to set automatic lockers directly in the tourist area, and not one, but a whole network of such lockers.
Management of the railway station and general contractor performed the railway station project with maximum liability. Everything was made at the highest level, including design and equipment.
This summer we set automatic lockers in the beautiful town of Budva, Montenegro. Let’s be honest – it was not very easy, because the order for eight automatic lockers fully assembled was received in May!
We spend April and May 2016 on the beach of Nissi Bay in Ayia Napa, Cyprus. The trip to Cyprus was very intense. We have not only established and carried out the launch complex of the beach lockers, but also met with many entrepreneurs who are interested to try themselves in this business.
Finally, we have officially established our representation in Europe. Now the vending equipment can be purchased directly from the warehouse in Torrevieja, Spain (near Alicante). The trip turned out very busy, two days on the road. Meeting with the Moscow partner in Madrid. Night trip to Torrevieja.
Our lockers have never been that far. However, you must admit, it is nice that MVK-MASH is trusted in the United States. We work from from dawn to dusk. After all, we need to have time to commission four sets before Christmas. However, it is not as simple as we wished it to be. Because in every order for the vending equipment, we face many difficulties and challenges that must be overcome. That happened with this order as well.
Our lockers have never been that far. The road was not only far, but difficult. We even got no sleep. The customer constantly hurried us. Standard situation, when the client puts off an execution of the order to the last, and then calls almost every day with the question: “How is it going?” But this does not make machines work faster, components delivered faster, and workers do not get another pair of hands to assemble the lockers more quickly. This is true!
Sochi 2015 beach season is almost over. This year not everything turned out as smoothly as we would like. Let’s even say — there were too many difficulties, especially this summer. Lots of mistakes, lots of incorrect decisions, lots of failures. But, despite all the difficulties (in fact, sometimes we met almost non-achievable goals), we have fulfilled our obligations in full. All automatic lockers have been installed, and all additional equipment (devices for charging phones, paid Internet access points, bill acceptors with the function of issuing change) has been set up.
New business project on installation of automatic lockers in Bulgaria. The Bulgarian language is very similar in writing to Russian — it is Cyrillic alphabet. Only the older generation understands Russian, and the youth does not. Why Bulgaria? There are 18 popular resorts. Average bill for an umbrella and a beach chair is € 6. For some beaches – € 12. A lot of tourists from Russia, Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus, Poland, Germany and other European countries. Perfect environment for investments and opening of new business.
