Retailers such as Used Vending, Gator Chef and Restaurant Equippers sell used commercial kitchen and food preparation equipment. Customers can buy these items online and ship them to a local address. Customers can also buy directly from the retailer's local store or on direct purchase websites, such as eBay.
Customers should be aware of any warranties or services the retailer offers before purchasing equipment. Some retailers offer refurbished equipment with guarantees for electric inspection, parts testing, electrical and wire testing, and safety inspections as well as warranties. In addition many retailers offer free consultation with customer service representatives to help determine the customer's needs and assist in choosing equipment for purchase.
