Electrolux Professional launches finance scheme for equipment upgrades

Electrolux Professional has unveiled plans designed to take the stress out of replacement equipment purchases, with the launch of an instant finance and 24-hour delivery service across a core range of catering equipment.

Created in partnership with independent finance provider Shire Leasing, Electrolux Express Finance offers flexible finance options to make upgrades and distress buying decision buying as simple as possible for those without the capital to take immediate action.

The new service builds on Electrolux Express, a ‘24 to the door' service, which allows kitchens to obtain replacement equipment from a specially-selected Express Range the day after an order is placed with one of Electrolux's UK-wide network of partners.

Electrolux Express Finance provides a rapid finance facility and delivery of the most commonly replaced kit, including prime cooking, dishwashing, and refrigeration and preparation equipment in four steps. When a machine needs upgrading, customers contact an Electrolux Professional partner to obtain instant finance approval on a replacement, before the order is placed and delivered within 24 hours.

Darren Lockley, head of region for UK & Ireland at Electrolux Professional, explained: "Speed is key when it comes to the replacement of equipment, but we know that not all of our customers have instant access to the capital they need to replace their kit when the time arises. In fact, over half of people we asked as part of our research said they would buy on finance given the option."
