Companies need commercial ice machines but they don’t need the hassles and costs associated with ice machine ownership!
Commercial Equipment Services understands the costs and headaches commercial ice machine ownership brings and that’s why we off a leasing program that takes the risk away from our customers. For customers that depend on ice, our fully-inclusive commercial ice machine subscription program delivers the best ice machines, service and added benefits.
Commercial ice machines are notoriously fickle pieces of capital equipment. So why spend capital on an ice machine that will require spending more money year after year? Commercial Equipment Services assumes the risk for commercial ice machines saving our customers the expenses of repairs, service, parts, maintenance and cleanings.
Commercial ice machine pre-installation checklist
The purpose of our pre-installation checklist is to provide you with some guidance regarding what is required to successfully install a commercial ice maker. It is not an exhaustive list. Our technicians will perform a thorough site survey prior to installation to ensure your location qualifies.
