We carry only mid to high level quality items.
Any product line that seems to be giving our customers problems is immediately removed.
Unlike most sites that list only selected products, we generally show all products of the brands we feature.
Advantages of slightly more expensive but higher quality equipment:
A) Less likely to break down and cause a loss of business.
B) If it does require service, it will likely have better, faster service and parts available.
C) They are generally more energy efficient.
D) These items are well known and have a much higher resale value.
Note about used equipment:
Unlike a car, there is no odometer on food service equipment. Unless you know the item came from a relatively new establishment, you won't know how old it is or how well it was maintained. Ask to see the original invoice to establish the purchase date. What kind of warranty does it come with? Are parts and service still available? One unexpected service call and disruption of business can eliminate the used price advantage. There is also a cost involved if you need to remove the item and reinstall a new one. Additionally, many older models are not as energy efficient as the newer ones.
With all the money and energy you put into your business, consider that an ounce of prevention is really worth a pound of cure.
