We’ve touched on this topic before but make sure you can find parts for your machine. If you haven’t done your research and homework and you haven’t read these articles before purchasing, you may wind up buying a brand that few people have heard of at an incredible deal, very low cost, and it may have sounded like a very good opportunity.
However, the first time something happens to your machine, you realize that you can’t find frozen yogurt machine parts for your particular brand anywhere and you’re stuck.
And while you may have saved a few thousand dollars in the purchase, and had a promise from the owner that it was a great machine, you’re now realizing that it’s worthless without access to parts.
Spare parts make the fixing possible so without it, you become stuck.
Further, you want to know where parts come from the machine, its exact location and etcetera so that you will be familiar with the whole repair process.
If you’ve got a repair technician and the machine breaks, the repair technician comes to take a look at it. Sometimes they will have standard parts with them. If you have a lesser known brand, your commercial frozen yogurt technician is going to have to order the spare parts.
If the parts has to be ordered, it’s going to make a difference if it’s going to come from your state, or the other side of the country, or a different country.
And it’s ok if you’ve got a foreign-made brand, but you want to make sure that that brand carries or has a sufficient warehouse of available spare parts for common things that go wrong with the equipment.
Once again, if you’re researching a piece of equipment that few people have heard about from an off brand or from a company that’s no longer in business. Be very careful here because if you don’t have access to parts, you will eventually be in trouble looking for it once your frozen yogurt machines breakdown.
