Williams Refrigeration has partnered with Academy Leasing to offer businesses competitive funding solutions and bespoke finance packages suitable for a range of budgets.
The package includes the option of a three-month period of discounted payments to help lower initial outlay.
The three-month discount is designed to help businesses by giving them a leg-up as they come out of lockdown.
Refrigeration equipment plays a vital role in professional food safety and hygiene regimes, but with budgets tightening the offer will make it easier for operators to get hold of the kit they need.
Customers can begin the lease with three lower monthly payments, instead of starting at the usual rate, freeing up cash flow just when it’s needed.
For example, a Williams bottle cooler would typically cost around £1,000. Under the new Williams leasing deal, the first three months on a five-year lease would cost only £6.11, followed by 57 payments of £23.65.
The lease can be used on all types of Williams equipment, from undercounter cabinets, to specialist equipment such as blast chillers and bespoke coldrooms.
A single lease can be used to buy multiple products – and it could also cover cooking equipment and other appliances.
“Many businesses are having to make big decisions about every aspect of their operation as part of the response to the Covid-19 pandemic,” said Malcolm Harling, sales and marketing director at Williams Refrigeration.
“The additional benefit of beginning the lease with lower payments for three months will help to free up cash flow during a critical period for businesses, whether they’re buying new or upgrading. These new leasing options are just part of Williams’ commitment to provide innovative, flexible solutions to meet the challenges of the lockdown and its aftermath.”
Leasing equipment rather than buying it has a number of advantages. It allows businesses to access the newest and most efficient technology that might otherwise be outside their budget.
Monthly, fixed payments make budget planning easier, with terms starting from 12 months up to five years.
This monthly payment can also cover any additional costs, including installation, training and maintenance.
Furthermore, companies can claim a tax allowance against any leased equipment, and it does not affect any existing credit lines.
