  • Service is provided during normal working hours Monday to Friday – 8.30am – 5pm. Service can be performed out of hours, however, the difference in the cost to a normal hours service will be the responsibility of the customer.
  • Warranty – Used Equipment – Three (3) months’ parts and labour from date of installation. Service is provided during normal working hours Monday to Friday – 8.30am – 5pm. Service can be performed out of hours, however, the difference in the cost to a normal hours service will be the responsibility of the customer.

Three Things Most People Don’t Appreciate About Renting…
Apart from the fact that you don’t need to provide a Director’s Guarantee to rent from Silver Chef, renting has three other very important benefits:

  • It frees up working capital to help you grow the business. Paying ‘cash’ for kitchen equipment means you have less working capital available to promote and grow the business. You’ll always get a better return on your money by investing it in the business than by tying it up in kitchen equipment that depreciates rapidly;
  • Remember, it’s the use of the equipment, not the ownership, that produces profit …
  • Rental payments are an operating expense. This means no liability appears on your balance sheet – unlike when you take out a loan or lease. And because you have no balance sheet liability from your kitchen equipment, you can maintain a higher line of credit with your bankers.
    It all comes back to working capital. Most businesses fail to thrive (or just plain fail) due to a lack of it. Renting gives you access to working capital that you just can’t get by leasing or purchasing equipment.


Silverchef partnered with inKind to create a practical way for communities to support their favourite hospitality businesses. We’re asking restaurant-goers to ‘pay it forward’ by buying credit at their favourite restaurant or café, using the inKind app. This credit will provide an invaluable cash flow injection that could make the difference to a business being able to stay open.

SilverChef and inKind are paying all costs associated with operating this program, so 100% of purchases (minus credit card fees) will be provided directly to the restaurant.
