FAQ - Residential

Question: What do you do for the price of the rental?
I will deliver the machine(s) you request to your location, set up the machine(s), and show you or anyone you wish how to operate and mix the product. I will pick up the equipment after your event at the most convenient time. I also leave written instructions for mixing and operating.

Question: Do you require a deposit?
No.

Question: How do I reserve a rental?
You can either call me (702 338-4091) or send an email with your name, address, contact person and best phone number, dates, and types and quantity of mixes you want. I will follow up with an email back with a draft of the rental agreement for your reference. With no deposit, there is also no charge for a cancellation.

Question: How do I pay?
I accept cash and personal or company checks. I do not do credit cards. Payment is at time of delivery.

Question: What do I put the machine on?
You will need a sturdy table or countertop for placement. A single machine will weigh about 100 lbs loaded and a two tank machine will weigh about 200 lbs. Typically a kitchen countertop works perfectly well, but they will NOT fit under an overhead cabinet. I can provide a 6' long convention table for your use without charge if it is available.

Question: What about electrical requirements?
For single machines any standard 15 amp 110 volt circuit will work. For a double machine, a 20 amp circuit is required. I can provide a 25' long heavy duty extension cord without charge if you need it, if it is available.

Question: What size are the machines?
A single machine is about 10" wide, 24" deep and 36" tall. The double machine is about 17" wide 24" deep and 36" tall.

Question: How long does it take to freeze?
At normal room temperatures, it takes about one hour to freeze a standard batch of mix.

Question: Can I use the machine outside?
This is a tricky question. You can indeed use the machines outside, but I don't guarantee the freezing capability of the machine when used outside due to the extremes of temperatures in Las Vegas. Best results can be obtained when keeping the machine in the shade and covering or wrapping the clear tank to prevent heating. Normal caution should be used to avoid electrical shock conditions by not allowing the power cords to come in contact with water.

Question: How much alcohol do I need?
To make a bar strength drink, 5 cups of your liquor of choice are needed for a normal 2.5 gallon charge. However, if you don't want to measure, using a liter bottle of your liquor of choice for each bottle of mix will be pretty close.

Question: Can I save and reuse left over mix?
Yes. If you use no alcohol, you should definitely refrigerate or freeze remaining diluted mix. For unused concentrate, reseal and refrigerate the remaining mix, which should last several months. For diluted mix that contains alcohol, you should still refrigerate the diluted mix, but no bacterial growth will occur because of the alcohol. I have stored unrefrigerated mix with alcohol in it for over a year with no ill effects.




FAQ - Trade Shows/Conventions

Question: What do you do for the price of the rental?
I will deliver the machine(s) you request to your location, set up the machine(s), and show you or anyone you wish how to operate and mix the product. I will pick up the equipment after your event at the most convenient time. I also leave written instructions for mixing and operating.

Question: Do you require a deposit?
No.

Question: How do I reserve a rental?
You can either call me (702 338-4091) or send an email with your name, company, mailing address, contact person and best phone number, dates, and types and quantity of mixes you want. I also need the location of the show, and booth number or other location designation. I will follow up with an email back with a draft of the rental agreement for your reference. With no deposit, there is also no charge for a cancellation.

Question: How do we arrange delivery and pickup?
Typically, most shows have a show service company that requires that they handle the physical transport of the machine(s) to and from your location. In some cases there are charges to the company for this service, and in some cases cart service is at no charge. Check with your show contact for this information. I deliver the equipment to the service company and they physically deliver. I set up and show how to operate it. I also arrange with the service company for retrieval at the end of the show. Sometimes you are required to fill out a bill of lading so that the service company has paperwork to authorize the removal of my equipment. If needed, please have that filled out prior to the end of your show.

Question: How do we make payment?
I accept cash or company check. I do not accept credit cards. Payment is normally made at the time of delivery. Billing can be arranged in advance for the rental and any mixes purchased. Net 30 days.

Question: What about electrical requirements?
For single machines any standard 15 amp 110 volt circuit will work, with power to spare for other small electrical devices. For a double machine, a 20 amp circuit is required. There is little spare power for other appliances for a double machine on a 20 amp circuit. Check with your show contact to arrange the necessary electrical service.

Question: What about water?
If you use my mixes, you will need approximately 2 gallons of water for each bottle of mix. There is no water service to your booth location, so you will need to transport water from a nearby source or use bottled water. I do not typically provide water.

Question: What do I put the machine(s) on?
Any show table provided by the show service will be adequate in most instances. If in doubt, check with your show provider for capacities of their tables. A single machine is about 10" wide, 24" deep and 36" tall and will weigh about 100 lbs. fully loaded. The double machine is about 17" wide 24" deep and 36" tall and will weigh about 200 lbs. fully loaded.
