What to Know When Shopping for an Ice Machine

There are many decisions that need to be considered when looking to purchase an ice machine. The type of business you are operating and the kind of ice needed on a daily basis will determine what kind of ice machine is right for your business. When customers come into Icesurance looking to purchase an ice machine, they should consider the following to help them choose the right make and model:

  1. Budget. The first consideration when looking to purchase an ice machine is how much money is available to spend. If budget is an issue, customers can lease ice machines from Icesurance. The cost includes installation, a full service agreement, and our ice guarantee, all at a low monthly cost. Our ice guarantee ensures we will deliver ice directly to your business if the machine breaks. Cost effective financing plans are also available.
  1. Peak business periods. Will your new ice machine be able to handle the increase in business during the summer months? We will assist you in determining what size ice machine makes the most sense for your situation. The two main types of ice machines are air-cooled condenser and water-cooled condenser, both carried by Icesurance. No matter what your ice needs are, we can help you choose the best size machine for your business.
  1. Space limitations. Where will your ice machine be located? Do you have a large enough space, or should you purchase two smaller units? Icesurance offers ice machines in a variety of sizes to fit any situation, from large commercial kitchens to food trucks and anything in between. Be sure to bring in your measurements to see what we have available for you.
  1. Power and water availability. Have you checked into the availability of a power supply and having a clean source of water for your ice machine location? This is one of the most important steps when looking at purchasing an ice machine. If you do not have a safe, reliable power source and a source of clean water, your business will suffer. Consider adding a water filter for better quality ice and to reduce the risk of having any sanitation issues.

An ice machine is a large investment for a business. It is important to do your homework and to have a clear understanding of what you need and what is available before making an ice machine purchase. Having the right ice machine will allow your business to operate at its best.
