    coffee machine leasing costs

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi folks,

    what would be a resonable price to pay to lease a solid, working 2 group commercial machine and large grinder [macap M7]

    looking for $/week ball park figure.

    Thanks

    See a local sponsor... *CosmoreX Coffee for eg..

    As to a ball park cost..

    Depends on how long the string is... err

    How many hundreds of cups an hr your going to do.. OR *10 or 15 or 20 kg a day or 10kg a month *:D

    Also have a chat to Dennis at Cuppacoffee about leasing through Silverchef (I know he was offering that)

    Thanks for the referral BF, and while we do have arrangements in place with GoGetta (division of Silver Chef), Id be surprised if Attilio didnt have a similar arrangement in place. And personally, I think its better to buy local. ;)

    Agreed :)

    Personally I am a big fan of buy it outright unless you are really short of capital and if so you will possibly be in bigger trouble really quickly unless you sell X product every time you open. Roaster piggy bank has been started *8-)

    Ill amend my remark to "buy or lease". There are certainly advantages to leasing eg. reasonable interest that is claimable on tax, frees up capital, ability to hand it back after a year, etc.

    To expand on AngerManagements point about the undefinable piece of string, there are any number of relevant factors...

    * What the "solid, working 2 group commercial machine" is actually worth, based on its condition, make, specs, stage of life and so on, plus its value as an asset (taking into account what else it could be used for)

    * Whether or not you will be buying coffee from the business/person that leases you the machine and, if so, how much how often and at what price

    * Whether the business will also be supplying other benefits and perks besides the machine -- what level of support? what training? what extras like cups and saucers, barriers and so on?

    * What kind of arrangement you are going to enter into regarding the lease and/or product purchases, and over what term

    * Other particular details of your business that may come into it -- your location, future prospects, existing warm relationship and so on

    * The unique business conditions in the local area that all play into what is reasonable/fair/sustainable with regards to pricing

    Not wishing to labour the point, but you see that there is really no answer to the question as you put it. Best path is to make contact with a reputable local business and talk specifics.

    Rgdz,
