HC Group is proud to offer clients a simple and affordable financing service through our partnership with Silver Chef Equipment Funding.
Their Rent-Try-Buy program offers you a flexible twelve-month contract with low weekly repayments that allows you to try equipment before you commit to it. HC Group and Silver Chef work together to ensure that you can free up valuable capital while starting or redesigning your business. You’ll also have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you’re benefiting from a flexible and generous repayment schedule.
The Silverchef’s Rent-Try-Buy® Solution is perfect for restaurateurs and caterers who want to keep their options open. With the Rent-Try-Buy® Solution, you aren’t locked into a long-term contract. Instead, we offer a 12-month agreement, so your business has the flexibility to:
- Purchase equipment at any time during the first 12 months and receive a 75% rental rebate.
- Return equipment at the end of the 12-month agreement if it is no longer required.
- Continue to rent – and we’ll simply continue to reduce your purchase price.
- Upgrade should you decide your business has outgrown the original equipment.

Rent vs Leasing
Rent vs Leasing
If you’ve made the smart decision not to tie up capital in Catering Equipment, you now must weigh the option of renting against the more common financing option: leasing.
While leasing may look like a good idea at first glance, you need to take into account the full impact leasing Kitchen Equipment will have on your business.
Leasing Silver Chef Rent-Try-Buy®
× Four-year fixed contract – Off-Balance Item
× On-balance item – No Director’s guarantee required
× Director’s guarantee required – Buy with 75% rebate on the rent you’ve paid
× No discounted purchase option – Return or continue renting (& lower the
× Stuck with the equipment purchase price)
A lease is a balance sheet item – which reduces your equity, your ability to borrow and, accordingly, your availability of working capital. Rent is an ‘off-balance’ sheet item (like salaries or electricity). This means that rental contracts have no impact on your equity, or on your ability to borrow.
A lease requires a lot of paperwork and binds you into a four year contract. This contract makes it difficult to trade or sell your equipment when it comes time to upgrade your kitchen.
A Silver Chef Rent-Try-Buy® agreement involves minimal paperwork, meaning you can get the equipment you need immediately – and enjoy the flexibility to upgrade whenever it suits.
