What You Need to Know About Vulcan’s Free New Equipment Checkout Program

So, you made the decision to purchase a brand new piece of high-quality kitchen equipment from Vulcan. Congratulations! But you’re not done yet. Next up? Getting your new oven, range, fryer, griddle, charbroiler, steamer, kettle, braising pan, heated holding cabinet, or combi up and running in your kitchen.

Unfortunately, this can sometimes be more challenging than it seems when you factor in all of the variables that go into an installation. Enter Vulcan’s New Equipment Checkout Program. Here’s a closer look at how all restaurant owners and managers can enjoy unprecedented peace of mind, thanks to Vulcan.


Is Your Install on Point?

Installing a piece of kitchen equipment involves much more than some heavy lifting. Proper assembly, leveling, and connection all go into the process, as do adjustments and calibrations along the way. Can you ever be certain that the job has been done right? You can now, thanks to Vulcan.

With our New Equipment Checkout Program, a service representative will provide a complimentary on-site inspection aimed at insuring that the equipment has been properly installed. After all, who knows Vulcan equipment better than our own trained and qualified service professionals?


Save Time, Money, and More

Vulcan’s New Equipment Checkout Program offers several advantages for today’s bottom line-minded restaurant owners and managers. For starters, you get the peace of mind that comes with knowing that a piece of equipment has been installed correctly. After all, equipment which has not been properly installed can put your staff at unnecessary risk by creating potentially hazardous working conditions. It can also potentially create health hazards for customers if it means food isn’t being cooked to the right temperature or properly stored.

Poorly installed equipment can also lead to another big issue for today’s busy restaurants: downtime. If equipment isn’t properly installed, it can interfere with the cooking staff’s ability to cook food efficiently. Not only can this lead to reduced morale among your kitchen staff, but it also has a direct impact on customers who are not likely to return if they have to wait a long time for their food.

In extreme cases, improperly installed equipment can even cause your restaurant to be shut down if it results in health and safety inspection failures.

And, of course, there’s the direct financial benefit: A checkup by a trained service professional is a smart preventative measure when it comes to minimizing the need for future service calls.

We’re confident that your new Vulcan kitchen equipment will surpass your expectations. However, proper installation is a major part of the equation. As a result, the New Equipment Checkout Program is a win-win for us and our customers alike. You get the extraordinary performance for which the Vulcan name has long been known, and we get the validation of knowing that each piece of kitchen equipment we manufacture will indeed live up to the iconic Vulcan name. Simply contact your dealer sales rep to schedule the checkout with one of our professional service networks, Hobart Service or the Vulcan Independent Service Network. (Equipment must be completely installed and ready to operate. Should be completed within 90 days after install.)
