What to consider when choosing a commercial appliance supplier
When selecting the right supplier and brand for your commercial appliances, there are a variety of factors you need to consider before committing to a purchase.
- Compare warranties to ensure your commercial appliance is covered for the maximum amount of time - usually between 3 months and a year. Some manufacturers also offer extended warranties - also called service contracts - which can be anywhere from a year up to 5 or more.
- View the equipment in person and ensure it is compatible with the building that is being constructed and adheres to all regulations
- Ask about price matching from other commercial appliance suppliers who may offer better warranties
- Consider consulting with a commercial appliance service expert to get advice on what brands last the longest, are budget friendly, and easiest to use
- Research the energy efficiency and durability of the products offered by the commercial appliance brands you are interested in
- If custom appliances are necessary for your project, inquire whether customization is available
- Consider the space you have when selecting commercial appliances, because one overtly large appliance may restrict your ability to use the space
- Compare costs from different suppliers to ensure you are getting the best deal, and inquire about discounts
- Review the supplier's reputation and customer reviews.

- Air conditioning unit
- Overhead lighting
- Trash compactors
- Water heater
- Laundry appliances
- Microwave oven
- Stove and cooktops
What methods of payment do commercial appliance suppliers accept?
Some commercial appliance suppliers will be more strict with what types of payment methods they accept, but these are the traditional payment methods:
- Terms - Most suppliers offer some form of terms to their customers. Terms can range from 0 up to 90 days in some instances. When a supplier offers terms, they’re most likely not to offer any discounts on top of it, because they will incur holding costs while waiting for payment.
- Cash - Paying cash upfront is the ideal payment option for commercial appliance suppliers. Some commercial appliance suppliers may even be willing to negotiate a lower price for contractors if they are able to pay upfront.
- Line of Credit - A line of credit is a common payment method for contractors, as it allows them the flexibility to pay back what is owed over time, rather than paying the entire bill up front. This is typically issued by a local or regional bank, or a credit union.
- Company Credit Cards - Bear in mind that some commercial appliance suppliers may charge an additional fee for using a credit card to account for the fee the bank charges them for the service.
- Material purchase financing - An excellent option for contractors is to purchase appliances from their supplier using material purchase financing, a form of financing uniquely for the purchase of commercial construction materials. This type of financing offers extended terms and allows you to buy materials now, and pay it back later. Billd offers this solution.
