The renting versus buying question is one we deal with frequently. We recently consulted with a caterer in Bath who was considering one of our walk-in freezer rooms for extra storage over the summer. However, anticipating that he would need extra capacity every summer for years to come, he wondered whether purchasing would be better or not.
We explained why we believe walk-in freezer hire is better than purchasing. Among the many reasons we gave him, these are the top three:
Lastly, we talked about the potential for lost business if the client decided not to do anything. It was apparent that not increasing his freezer space would force him to have to turn down some jobs offered during the busiest time of year. Turning down business is not a good choice when you are looking to expand.
In the end, walk-in freezer hire turned out to be the right choice for our caterer in Bath†. We are happy to say he now has plenty of freezer capacity to meet the summertime demand. Once the season ends, we will pick up our unit and start making plans for next year.
