Ensuring that drain lines are protected from waste food, fats, oils & grease is an important consideration for any caterer or restauranteur.

As grease removal equipment is not front of house and in the past enforcement has been minimal, many caterers have gravitated towards low quality or sub-optimal equipment in an effort to reduce costs, while nominally meeting their obligations.

Although the appetite for expenditure on grease removal remains low, water authorities and landlords have increasingly begun to crack down on sites with poorly maintained, sub-standard or no equipment in place.

The result is that many caterers with old, inferior or no grease removal units are required to source equipment of sufficient size and quality at short notice following site inspections or the emergence of drainage issues in the vicinity.

In order to assist with this endeavour, RGR Facilities have partnered with Shire Leasing – allowing clients to avoid costly upfront equipment payments and instead to lease their preferred equipment, with repayments made monthly or quarterly over a period of 3, 5 or 7 years.

Providing the option to lease a grease trap allows clients to protect their cash flow by paying as they earn, with a further option to include installation and planned maintenance costs in the payment plan.

Unlike payments by cash, all lease rental payments are 100% tax deductible against profits and have no impact on existing credit lines - and with access to over 20 specialist asset funders through Shire Leasing’s panel, you can be assured of receiving competitive finance options.

In the spirit of allowing clients to focus on the needs of their sites, rather than the cost of the equipment, it is also possible for clients to upgrade their units before the end of the lease term if any need upgrading or replacing.
