What are the best ATM machines in 2021 and how much do they cost? Here are 6 ATM machines you can choose from. In this modern age, ATMs have become an important tool for the modern consumer. During the restrictions of COVID-19, ATMs can mean limited human interaction in modern banking.

Although it depends on the visibility of the machine, an ATM is likely to be accessed 15 to 30 times a month. Those transactions generate revenue from the fees. That revenue can add up to as much as $20,000 and $30,000 per year – no small chunk of change.

Types of ATM

There are two types of ATMs common in the U.S. The free-standing kiosk type and the in-wall or built-in type! For business owners with floor space limits, a free-standing ATM with a small footprint is the ideal option. Some are as small as 16″ square. Others are counter-top models that are secured to a tabletop. They can weigh from 200-400 lbs. and must be bolted to the floor or to the countertop.

The other type of ATM is the built-in version. They are customarily built into a secure, controlled-access room, which offers another level of safety. The installation of one of these machines is not easy. The chassis of the ATM resides inside the secured area and the face is placed through the wall to the other side. The usual material for the walls is reinforced concrete. The ATM itself weighs near 1000 lbs.

If you are considering adding an ATM to your business, the first thing you need to consider is if you would rather rent or buy the machine. If you have been saving money, buying an ATM outright may be a great option. It is a one-time purchase; you won’t have to pay monthly fees, and you won’t be tied to a holding company.

It is advisable that you research and find a model that best suits your business. If your company doesn’t have as much working capital, renting can be a great option. While you’ll owe monthly payments, you’ll have access to a good machine, maintenance options, and profitability.

When it comes to finding an ATM Company or buying an ATM Machine, comparing quotes is the key to getting a top product for the lowest price. Below are the best ATM machines you can get. All of these machines have EMV as a standard feature, as this is now required.
