There is no set price on coffee machine rental and it will vary depending on the supplier, type of coffee machine, plus capabilities and performance. It is important to compare different prices and find an espresso machine that both meets your requirements but doesn't break the bank. As a general rule, prices are usually between £10 and £50 per week. Although there are some coffee machines for less than £10, and also over £50, the majority will fall within this bracket. The price of renting is normally more expensive than leasing in the long run, so we wouldn't recommend renting for a period longer than 2 years. For periods longer than that, leasing is usually a more cost-effective option.

What Type Of Coffee Machine Is Usually Rented Out?
It is usually smaller espresso machines that are most commonly rented out. Tanked coffee machines are the more popular choice over plumbed-in options, as they are much easier to move and install in different premises. Therefore, renting may not be the best option for high volume environments that require plumbed-in bean to cup machines.
What Are The Servicing Options When Renting A Coffee Machine?
As the ownership of the coffee machine remains with the supplier during a rental agreement, most suppliers will provide servicing, maintenance and breakdown cover whilst it is in your care. However, it is important to find out what falls under their responsibility, and yours, before you sign a rental agreement. By having maintenance and breakdown cover you will never be without a coffee machine throughout your rental period, giving you much-needed peace of mind. Some suppliers will also offer on-going technical support should you encounter a problem, and may even offer training on how to use it.
What to look out for when renting a coffee machine?
There are a few things to look out for when it comes to commercial coffee machine rentals. Firstly, be aware of the condition when you receive it; it is likely to have been rented out a lot before you, and so it may not be performing at its best. Regularly moving coffee machines and misuse does eventually take its toll. Another thing to look out for are any hidden costs. Some suppliers may require you to prepay for a set amount of drinks. If this is the case, make sure you know how many drinks you will require, as you don't want to end up paying for drinks you don't end up using.
