Restaurant Equipment Repair

Monday, December 1st, 2008

Needing restaurant equipment repair can be frustrating, and it happens to all of us sooner or later. That pizza oven or ice machine you depend on for your restaurant to function does you no good if it’s not working. Every moment a piece of equipment sits there broken is another moment you’re losing out on what it’s supposed to be doing. Work can get backed up, and business can be lost all because of a broken piece of equipment.

Finding someone to handle your restaurant equipment repair in a timely fashion can sometimes be difficult. And unfortunately once you do get someone out to look at it, they may have to give you some bad news if the damage is serious. You may get lucky and only need a very minor repair like a new light bulb, replacement burner or a new pilot light. But costly repair parts or long hours involving expensive labor might be required. Or a needed part might have to be shipped in order for the repair to be made, causing you to have to wait even longer to have your restaurant equipment back in use.

Restaurant equipment repair can really cost you, even to the point where it makes more sense to just buy a new piece of equipment to replace the broken one. So how do you decide to go with repair or buy a new one? Well, you’ll want to take into consideration how much it’d cost to replace. Then compare that with how much it’d cost to repair the broken one. Factor in time it’s not in service, labor costs and parts costs. You can also take into consideration the age of the piece of restaurant equipment. Restaurant owners find that when they look at it this way, it’s often a better choice to buy a new piece of restaurant equipment to replace the broken one.
