Apply for funding

Silver Chef backs potential and approves 96% of applicants, most of the time within 24 hours. You can apply either through your preferred equipment dealer or directly with Silver Chef by phone or online at

Get your equipment

Once approved, your equipment dealer will finalize your transaction and arrange delivery. If you are funding equipment for a business you have owned for over 2 years, you’re not required to pay a security bond. For all other applicants, a 6 week refundable security bond is required.

12 month rental agreement

Rent-Try-Buy® is a 12 month agreement that lets you try before you buy. During this time you can:

  • Upgrade at any time. For example, if your 2 Group coffee machine isn’t keeping up with your orders, replace it with a 3 Group and pay the difference in weekly payments.
  • Purchase at any time. Once you know the equipment is right, you have the option to purchase. You’ll receive a 75% net rental rebate on your payments to date.

Weekly rental payments

Save your working capital with low weekly payments that – being a rental agreement – are 100% tax deductible* as well as off-balance sheet, meaning it won’t affect your ability to borrow for future expansion.
