We're for takeaways

The takeaway sector has seen huge disruption in recent years. More people want gourmet food without leaving the house; and the boom in third party delivery services has brought more competition. Our flexible equipment finance can help you adapt to industry volatility, helping you successfully grow your takeaway business.

Growing your takeaway is easy with Rent-Try-Buy®

What is Rent-Try-Buy?

Rent-Try-Buy® is a 12-month rental agreement, allowing you to try equipment in your business before you buy it. Enjoy unrivalled flexibility when it comes to owning and managing your commercial hospitality equipment.


How does it work?

During your 12-month Rent-Try-Buy agreement, you have the following flexible options:

Upgrade at any time. For example, if you outgrow your two-group coffee machine, replace it with a three-group and simply add the balance to your weekly payments.

Purchase at any time. Once you know the equipment is right, you can purchase it outright with no penalty. In fact, you'll receive a 50% gross rental rebate on your first 12 months' payments'.



Options at 12 months

When your 12-month Rent-Try-Buy agreement finishes, you can choose from the following options:

Purchase the equipment. If you know the equipment is right, you can purchase it outright and receive a 50% gross rental rebate on your first 12 months' payments'. You can do this at the end of your 12-month agreement, or at any time during the 12 months.

Continue to rent. Continue renting and keep your options open, while the purchase price continues to reduce with each weekly payment.

Extend your contract. If you decide to extend your contract for another 12 months, you'll receive a 25% discount on the previous rental price, when you sign up. Plus retain the ability to purchase and upgrade at any time.

Return the equipment. If you've decided the equipment no longer suits your needs, simply return it with no further obligation.



What type of equipment can I finance?

Starting or growing a serious hospitality business means serious equipment - so we finance most types of commercial hospitality equipment available from our network of accredited dealers. And if you're starting from scratch, we can finance your complete fit-out, including custom stainless-steel fixtures and furniture.

Another cost-effective option is our own range of Certified Used equipment. SilverChef's Certified Used equipment comes from businesses like yours, who have returned equipment through our Rent-Try-Buy product. Most Certified Used equipment is less than 18 months old, has undergone a six-stage refurbishment process and comes with warranty.

'My idea for Tuck Shop Pies was to do a straight up pie and coffee shop in a shipping container. I wanted to keep it nice and simple. The attractive thing about using SilverChef is that it is a weekly payment for renting the equipment rather than an upfront cost. I like knowing what I have to pay each week.


'My display cabinets would usually cost $10,000 each and what happens when you don't want them anymore? You'd have to sell for half the cost on Trade Me. The beauty of SilverChef is that you can scale up and down the equipment if something's not working.'


- Emile Bennington, Tuck Shop Pies
