Exploring Your Options: Purchasing vs. Renting Bar Equipment

When it comes to setting up or upgrading a bar, choosing the right equipment is crucial. One of the key decisions you’ll face is whether to purchase or rent essential items such as glasswashers, dishwashers, commercial ice makers and bottle coolers. In this blog, we’ll explore the benefits of both options, helping you make an informed decision that suits your business needs.

Purchasing Bar Equipment:

Purchasing equipment means making a long-term investment in your business. While the upfront costs may be higher, you ultimately own the equipment, and it becomes a valuable asset for your establishment.

Although the initial investment might be more substantial, purchasing equipment often results in cost savings over the long term. You avoid ongoing rental fees, which can accumulate over time.

It’s worth noting that commercial equipment, especially glasswashers and dishwashers, are workhorses that are in constant operation. When buying brand new, a typical manufacturer’s warranty maybe 1 or 2 years, however this by no means safeguards you against all repair costs. It is not unusual that user error or misuse could void your warranty agreement, leaving you with expensive call-out and repair charges. Remember, warewashers that are used on a daily basis, no matter how good or well maintained, will never last forever, which makes rental agreements a viable alternative.

Renting Bar Equipment:

Renting allows you to acquire high-quality bar equipment without a significant upfront investment. This is particularly advantageous for new businesses or those with budget constraints.
