Electrolux Professional is helping care homes to quickly upgrade or replace kitchen kit by offering instant access to finance and 24-hour delivery across a core range of catering equipment.
The company has launched Electrolux Express Finance in conjunction with independent finance provider Shire Leasing, to offer a one-stop service with flexible finance options to make upgrades and distress scenarios as pain-free as possible for those without the capital to take immediate action.
The new service builds on Electrolux Express, a ‘24 to the door’ provision that allows kitchens to obtain replacement equipment from a specially-selected Express Range the day after an order is placed with one of its UK-wide network of partners.
Electrolux Express Finance promises the rapid finance and delivery of the most commonly-replaced kit – from prime cooking and dishwashing, to refrigeration and dynamic preparation equipment – in just four simple steps.
When a machine needs upgrading, customers need only contact an Electrolux Professional partner to obtain instant finance approval on a replacement, before the order is placed and delivered within 24-hours.
“Speed is key when it comes to the replacement of equipment, but we know that not all of our customers have instant access to the capital they would need to replace their kit when the time arises. In fact, well over half of people we asked as part of our research said they would buy on finance given the option,” says Darren Lockley, head of region for UK & Ireland at Electrolux Professional.
“Through Electrolux Express Finance, we are offering a comprehensive solution for when chefs and caterers most need it, and we hope that this service will be the perfect tool for those in need of a fast and reliable replacement.”
