Event ATM FAQs

Why would I want an ATM at my event?

Even back as far as the first event we attended we could see the benefit of having the ATM at a school fete. We had attended the fete for many years as parents and every year people would run out of money. Each year they would say that they were going down to the IGA (500 metres down the road) to get money and as many as 90% of those people that left with good intentions simply didn't come back.

Once they had left the event it was often too hard to come back. Either they had found somewhere else to eat, they had reconsidered their purchase or it's just simply too much effort to return.

Does it cost me anything to have an ATM at my event?

For small events, we have a hire fee. A small event is an event where there will be less than 8,000 people attending.

Our trailer hire fee covers our minimum costs to provide this service to your event which includes our weekend labour to deliver and pick up the ATMs at your event, insurance, communications, overseeing the ATMs for the duration of your event and the cost of providing cash.

Ask is for further details about our hire fees by getting in contact with us. It does vary upson location and the duration of the event.

We prefer to think of an ATM as an investment for your event rather than an expense. If you consider that for your $455 investment you could get up to $10,000 (and normally a lot more) invested back into your event, you are already way ahead.

We do charge higher hire fees for those events that are not in a franchisee's territory and involve considerable travel or for multiple day events. In these cases, we need to cover our additional expenses to attend your event which includes time, fuel and accommodation. If your event will have more than 10,000 people attending and there is evidence of this number of people attending in the past, then we can negotiate our hire fee with you.

We are a not-for-profit event, will you waive your hire fee for us?

In most instances we won't waive our hire fee for not-for-profit associations. We still need to allocate equipment to your event that can then not be used elsewhere, plus our overheads don't change because it's a not-for-profit event.

Who wears the risk of having the ATM at my event?

The ATM owner (in our case one of our franchisees) is responsible for the ATM at your event, for the equipment and for the cash.

Do you have your own public liability insurance?

We sure do! All franchisees have $20 million dollars public liability insurance.

Are you a member of the ATMIA (ATM Industry Association)?

We sure are! The ATMIA is responsible for disseminating information to ATM deployers regarding compliant machinery, forthcoming changes to the industry and changes to card systems. Staying on top of changes is paramount to ensure we are up to date with current ATM industry rules and regulations.


ATM2GO makes it a priority to attends the annual ATMIA Conference in the US and the bi-annual conference in Australia.


If you are comparing us to other providers we suggest that you do your due diligence on us. Read all about us on our website and follow us on Facebook (it reads like our CV). If you would like the contact details of other event organisers to chat to about our services just let us know.

If you are comparing us to our competitors please do so fairly. Make sure they are providing the same high level of service, that they are using Australian compliant machinery, that they have reliable communications, that they can provide sufficient funds for your event and that they will turn up to your event when they say they will.

We are one of the very early providers of event ATMs, we are still around because we provide this valuable service at a consistently high standard.
