How To Rent Food Service Carts
Learning how to rent food service carts can save you money if you only intend to use them for a short period of time. However, if you plan on running a business that requires you to have a food service cart, you are better off purchasing one. Food service carts function as a moveable storage container that you can transport food, cleaning products and other similar things. They can cut down on clean up time since the workers will have all the supplies they need right with them and they can cut down on broken dishes since waiters and waitresses will not have to carry everything in their arms.
Things you'll need:
- Access to local businesses that rent/sell food service carts
- Before you rent a food service cart, you should decide upon the style that you need and the price you are willing to pay. Set the price point first and then stick to it as strictly as you can. You should then narrow down the size of the cart you feel is necessary as well as the different capabilities the cart should have. If you plan this out before shopping for the cart you need, you will save yourself a lot of time and stress.
- Try calling different stores that sell food service carts and see what their policy on renting is. Because they are fairly cheap, renting food service carts may take some shopping around. However, there are certainly places that would be willing to rent to you if you offer them a deal on their products. Do not give up if you are not immediately successful at finding someone to rent from.
- Call the large restaurant chains around town and ask if you can rent from them. Most big restaurants will have food service carts and usually they will have more than is necessary. If you offer them a good deal and they decide they do not need the cart for that night, you could rent from them.
- Make sure you shop around and negotiate for the price you pay to rent for the cart. Do not settle on the first place you find that rents carts. Try to find at least two or three to rent from and then negotiate with them until you have decided upon a price you are willing to pay.
