Renting kitchen equipment can be a good alternative to buying outright, for a number of reasons. Firstly, there are a lot of costs involved in setting up and running a commercial kitchen, so choosing to rent commercial kitchen equipment can leave you more money for running your business and other expenses.
Secondly, there may be tax benefits to renting restaurant equipment – it’s important you discuss these with a qualified tax advisor before making any decisions.
Finally, with SilverChef’s Rent-Try-Buy you get additional flexibility over typical rental products.
You can decide to upgrade your equipment in the first 12 months if you need something bigger and better (in the same equipment category e.g. upgrade rented fridge to a bigger fridge); you can also decide to purchase it and get a 50% gross rental rebate on your payments so far (up to 12 months).
At the end of your 12 month contract, you can decide whether to keep renting your restaurant equipment, work towards ownership, or return. Please note that if you decide to purchase your kitchen equipment after the end of your 12 month term, the net rental rebate drops to 25% after 12 months.
