If you are opening a restaurant or getting ready to make upgrades, buying used restaurant equipment is a great way to get everything you need without breaking the bank. Here are some tips for buying used restaurant equipment from Kohn-Megibow Company:
- Make a Priority List
First and foremost, make a complete list of all the equipment you’ll need and then put that list in order of priority. It will allow you to focus on what matters most and purchase those top priority pieces first. Otherwise, it can be unorganized, leaving the buying process to feel overwhelming.
- Research the Brands and Options
Next, you will want to do your research. Take some time to see the advantages and disadvantages of the various equipment and brand name manufacturers. Also, understand the different options available for each type of equipment so you can know exactly what you’ll need in your restaurant.
- Know Your Buying Options
You might be able to find good used restaurant equipment directly from a restaurant that is liquidating, or you can turn to a restaurant equipment wholesaler like KMC. With us, you can buy directly from our warehouse at discount prices or attend one of our bi-weekly used restaurant equipment auctions.
- Research Parts and Accessories
Before you commit to any used restaurant equipment, it’s worth knowing how available replacement parts are, how much they cost and how easy/difficult they are to replace/install. The same goes for any accessories or variations that you can add to improve or customize your equipment for specific kitchen functions. Oftentimes, you can find these accessories for great deals at a restaurant equipment warehouse like Kohn-Megibow Company.
