New and used

Our marketplace includes not only new equipment but also ‘Certified Used’ equipment — mostly ex-rental equipment that’s been fully refurbished and which you can either finance or purchase outright. 

We also market clearance equipment sourced from trusted third-party suppliers. 


Fast delivery 

We can order equipment for you via a network of hundreds of equipment dealers nationwide (new equipment) or dispatch it from one of our warehouses (used and clearance equipment). 

If the equipment’s in stock, it can typically be delivered to your business within 1–5 business days.  



If you finance new equipment through us, we’ll consider paying you cash for any old equipment you’d like to trade in. 

We’ll consider your old equipment’s age and condition, among other things, before making you an offer that reflects fair market value.  


Warranty support 

New equipment typically comes with at least a one-year manufacturer’s warranty, and our Certified Used equipment has a three-month warranty. 

If your financed equipment breaks down within the warranty period, we can help you arrange a free repair, replacement or refund.

We’ll finance virtually any type of commercial kitchen equipment that helps your business make a profit.

Do you finance used equipment? 

Yes — we can offer you finance for our own range of fully refurbished equipment, which we refer to as ‘Certified Used’.  

This is mostly ex-rental equipment that’s been stripped, cleaned, and serviced using genuine manufacturer parts before being rigorously tested.  

We’re so confident in the quality of our Certified Used equipment, it comes with a three-month warranty.

Do you accept trade-ins? 

If you finance new equipment through us, we’ll consider paying you cash for your old equipment (i.e. a trade-in).  

Alternatively, if your business’s cash flow is tight and you need some quick cash to relieve the situation, we’ll consider buying equipment you’ve bought recently. 

We’ll pay you a lump sum of cash — which you can inject into your business — and then rent the equipment back to you for manageable, weekly payments under a 12-month Rent–Try–Buy agreement.
