Business on a Budget: Catering Equipment

Are you in the restaurant or food industry? Do you own a small business? Do you manage a commercial food enterprise, or even a franchise? Well, in this current edition of Business on a Budget we will let you in on some valuable insider information.

You needn’t pay full price to fit out your kitchen. And, it shouldn’t cost a fortune to furnish your venue and maintain your inventory and equipment. Stop paying full price for quality goods and have a good look at your options.

Salvaged and Repossessed Catering Equipment

You can buy catering equipment – most commonly at auction – that has been salvaged or repossessed. This allows for massive savings, keeping your business as far away from the red as possible.

It’s an unfortunate reality that restaurants and other related enterprises do close down for various reasons.  But, what happens to all the gear when a venue goes out of business?

Salvaged and repossessed catering equipment allows a company that has experienced hard times to recoup their losses. At the same it allows another business to take advantage of massive savings on often near new, quality goods.

Choice

Commercial catering equipment is often made available for sale to the public as a result of liquidations, foreclosures and other similar circumstances. This represents a mass of goods that are often in great working order and have an urgent requirement to be sold.

It depends on the type of restaurant or food premises that has resulted in the surplus of equipment. However, typically as a company or an individual you can access a wide variety of furniture, appliances and other items for sale.

Commonly you can find catering equipment for sale across most industry needs. A sample of items that you could buy: cooktops, workbenches, ovens (including pizza ovens etc.), deep fryers, grills, dishwashers, fridges, freezers, all kinds of commercial furniture and speciality wares such as soft serve machines.

Auctions

Auctions present one of the most obvious and accessible ways to obtain salvaged and repossessed catering and restaurant equipment.  By procuring goods for sale direct from the original owners, auctions represent prime opportunities to buy goods at prices well below retail cost.

Items at auction are often ‘must-sell’. This means the buyer gets a great deal due to the urgency of the situation. Auction houses with impeccable customer sales and service records offer complete peace of mind to the buyer and are the savvy way to shop for your business.

One such company is Lloyds Auctioneers and Valuers. They are a leader in auctions across Australia.  They select quality goods and perform regular testing. They also offer the ability to bid via the net on a 24/7 basis. The comprehensive online auction system is quick and easy to use.
