Reconditioned Kitchen Catering Equipment in the UK
The slow rate of growth in the United Kingdom and other countries in the European Union has put more pressure on small businesses that were already finding it tough to survive. Nevertheless, survive many of them are and some of them are making a good profit as well. The desire to cut running expenses among companies that are involved in the catering industry has led a number of them to opt for second hand machinery when refurbishing a restaurant or café, rather than buying new.
This change in attitude has led to an increased demand for previously owned refrigeration units and cooking appliances, which has had a knock on effect on the number of suppliers that specialise in providing such equipment. Nowadays, an online search will usually turn up dozens of stockists of interest to firms that are looking to buy used units to preserve their dwindling supply of capital, so there are plenty of accessories from which to choose.
It should also be possible to find several local suppliers of kitchen catering equipment that are capable of meeting your organisation’s needs for a reasonable price. What constitutes a fair price these days is open to debate but because you can find a number of online stockists in just a few seconds, it is easy to check what other dealers are charging for any item that you are looking to buy.
New equipment comes with a warranty from the manufacturer that usually covers the buyer in the event that the unit in question should break down within the period of time stipulated in the terms and conditions attached to the warranty. This is a useful benefit that has persuaded some people in the catering industry to continue to buy new. Nevertheless, with some firms offering 12 months parts and labour warranties on reconditioned equipment, older machines are definitely worth considering.
If you are keen to save money then, as mentioned above, second hand machinery is bound to appeal. If you have no idea how to fix cooking accessories when they break down you may want to stick to the companies that offer a warranty on second hand items, also mentioned above. Once the warranty period has expired, you will need to find a local handyman who charges reasonable rates.
