Do You Need Commercial Appliance Repairs or a Replacement? December 29, 2017

Do You Need Commercial Appliance Repairs or a Replacement?, Virginia Beach, Virginia

Having to call for commercial appliance repairs is never an event restaurant owners look forward to, but it is an unavoidable part of running a business. Unfortunately, sometimes, fixing the issue is not the most viable option: It could be better to replace the item altogether. So, how can you decide which is right for you? Consider the three factors below.

How to Decide if You Need Commercial Appliance Repairs or a Replacement

1. The Warranty 

First, double check whether or not the broken appliance is still under warranty. If it is, you may qualify for a free or at least discounted repair. This could significantly lower the costs associated with fixing the item and help you avoid having to pay for a replacement.

2. Part Availability

There may be instances in which the manufacturer no longer makes the fridge or stove model you have, leaving you with no choice but to replace the item. Additionally, even if they still do make the product, they might not be able to ship out a part for a few weeks. At this point, you’ll need to decide if that would interrupt your business operations or if you can wait.

3. Cost

Most importantly, consider which is the cheaper option: appliance repairs or replacement? Without a warranty, paying to fix an item in a commercial kitchen can be quite expensive. Additionally, if you’ve called to have this particular appliance repaired before, it may simply be on its way out, making replacing it the better option. Finally, if the item is extremely old, you could save money by purchasing a new, more energy-efficient option. Always compare the costs of repairs and replacement before making a final decision.
