Renting coffee shop 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 café, so choosing to rent second hand cafe equipment can leave you more money for running your business and other expenses.
Secondly, there may be tax benefits to renting cafe 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 cafe rental products. You can decide to upgrade your cafe supplies 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 60% net 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 cafe equipment, work towards ownership, or return. Please note that if you decide to purchase your cafe equipment after the end of your 12-month term, the net rental rebate drops to 25% after 12 months.
