5 Reasons to Purchase Your Restaurant Equipment Used

Furnishing your commercial kitchen can be a daunting project and can put a huge dent in your wallet. But there’s good news – you can avoid such wretched fate! Used commercial kitchen appliances can save you money, and ACityDiscount is the reputable, trustworthy dealer that can help you save big bucks today!

1. Save Money

The top reason to purchase used commercial kitchen equipment is the money saving benefits. This is a great option for new restaurant owners on a small or limited budget seeking equipment for a start up bar, restaurant or commercial kitchen. This allows the excess money to be utilized in other important areas. A new restaurant owner can enjoy the perk of furnishing their commercial kitchen with top brands for a fraction of the price it would cost to do so otherwise. Now, that’s pretty unbeatable.

2. Like-New Equipment

The unfortunate statistics show that 30% of food service businesses fail in the first year and a staggering 60% fail in the first 3 years. Of course, not yours – we totally believe in you! But what this means is that many used appliances are so gently used, that you can get like new equipment for a steal! Often in these situations, equipment has been well maintained and reconditioned. Sometimes your used equipment will even come with a valid, transferrable warranty – just ask!

3. Decreased Value Depreciation

The value of your equipment won’t depreciate at the same rate as a brand new appliance would. A new piece of equipment drops drastically in value the moment it begins service.

4. Tax Break

Did you know that both new and used equipment qualifies for Section 179 deduction? This IRS Tax Code allows a business to deduct, for the current tax year, the full purchase price of equipment that qualifies for the deduction.

5. Environmental Benefits

If you are an environmentally conscious buyer, consider buying used restaurant supplies as a form of recycling. Most restaurant equipment is reusable, down to the POS system! Why not go the whole 9 yards and work on making your restaurant green as well?
