Seasoned restaurant owners know how to find bargains and are aware that saving on purchases are eminent in this type of business. New restaurant owners may be of the view that the more they spend in outfitting their business, the better the quality of the equipment and the longer everything will last. While quality is a major factor in any purchase, you can search for lower prices of the same brand.

 

Here are some tips that can help you in making a more educated decision when purchasing equipment:

  • Warranties

While a discount restaurant supply of kitchen equipment or furniture may be enticing, ensure that you pay attention to the warranties offered. Usually, if you can purchase an extended warranty, it may be beneficial to you if the equipment would be one of the most used in your business. Chances are, these would be the first to have incidents. Service calls for equipment that carry no warranty, can cost you thousands of dollars, with a domino effect into the revenue of your business. Even so, it is your responsibility to check what areas of the warranty are limited.

  • Extended Warranty

Before you pay for the extended warranty, break-down your equipment into categories. Decide whether the equipment is core, meaning that it is critical and essential for the business, or non-core but critical, meaning that is not necessarily essential but it is important and can hamper the business if it is down, or non-core and non-critical meaning that it is not essential and will not hamper your business if it is damaged. Obviously, the extended warranty should be purchased for the first two categories, more so for core equipment.

  • Maintenance

Having decided which equipment is core, you would want to schedule regular maintenance services so that the equipment does not fail on you during a critical time. When you spend a lot of money on equipment, whoever you purchase from, should have an after sales service. Companies that sell the equipment but do not maintain it, can cause some issues later on. If they do not service it themselves, they may most likely have a list of reputable service providers whom they can point you toward. Do not wait until something goes wrong, it is best to be prepared.
