Commercial Kitchen Equipment – Why Buy Second Hand?

In all of our kitchen equipment auctions, we have a vast array of household names and trusted brands. With BPI Auctions buyers can bid and buy with confidence that the equipment being sold is value for money and presented properly.

A great deal of our catering equipment customers are repeat buyers. As well as highlighting trust in our service, it also highlights a great deal of confidence in the items customers buy through us.

We sell high-quality catering equipment that has come in stock as a result of liquidation or from companies who have upgraded their equipment. As a result, we have the likes of industrial freezers, mixing and baking equipment, ovens and chillers available to buy in an auction today.

Benefits of Buying Used Catering Equipment

In general, we believe that purchasing used restaurant equipment presents better value in both the short and long-term. Most items available through auction are in excellent, working condition and are a fraction of the price of a new model. When you purchase used commercial kitchen equipment, depreciation is FAR less dramatic. This equipment already loses its initial value when the original purchaser/seller purchased or sold the equipment … as a result, you're scoring a better overall value.

Many manufacturers have problems with transporting equipment and damaging it, albeit residual, in most cases this lowers the value. Costs of repair outweigh its true worth. As a result, we see a very high turnover for equipment in our used restaurant equipment auctions that is still in great working condition and classified as B grade. Although there is no condition report, most non-working equipment can be repaired by the buyer and still save money over the cost of new.

On top of this, purchasing second-hand catering equipment in any of our auctions is a form of recycling. By saving money, you're also helping the environment!

Not only will you be benefiting from helping the environment, but you will also benefit from avoiding the vast expenses that it takes to fill up a kitchen. We all know saving money is such a great feeling but also a way of life, in most cases. 

All the catering equipment for inside a domestic or commercial kitchen that are simply must-haves can come at a cost. That’s why you’ll be benefiting from looking into our used catering equipment auction. It’s a fantastic way to get your commercial kitchen in the shape you’re looking for.

Here at BPI auctions, we have you covered and we do our very best in providing you with a smooth and pleasant auction.
