Wouldn’t life be easier if money really was no object? Sadly, unless you run the country, this is simply not the case. Most of us have just finished paying off the remnants of the Christmas excesses but guess what? Easter, the next major holiday on the calendar, is just around the corner.
For those who are in the catering business, Easter heralds the end of the winter and the start of the summer, and almost certainly, increased trade. Easter begins on 18th April with Good Friday when pubs, clubs, bars and restaurants will be looking to serve large numbers of customers throughout the holiday season. Now is the time to make sure that your Rational oven is in tiptop condition, and that means using the service and maintenance programmes on offer.
Why Bother With Service Agreements?
There is a very good reason why companies offer service agreements and maintenance programmes, even the biggest names in the industry, such as Rational. You may think that your oven is working perfectly, but unless it is serviced properly and maintained then you are not in a position to know if anything is wrong until it goes wrong. And then it’s a case of “can open, worms everywhere!”
Rational offers a two-year warranty on new appliances and when that period is up, then the company’s service partners have a number of maintenance options. Why is this recommended? Simply to cover any eventuality. Ovens can and will go wrong for many reasons. Imagine the following scenario, you have a room full of hungry guests and the oven suddenly goes on the blink. First you have to find an engineer quickly. Good luck with that. Second, you have to pray that any parts that are needed are in stock. Thirdly you have to pay out a lot. Need I say more?
No-one can predict the unpredictable but planning for it is a rational decision. There are a number of scenarios that can happen if your oven fails suddenly for whatever reason:
1. You lose customers
2. You lose money
3. You lose reputation.
Time has a tendency to run away with us so contact a service engineer and have your appliance checked out now by a reputable and proven company, such as AC Services Southern with 30 years’ combined experience as an approved Rational service partner, installing, servicing, and repairing ovens.
Remember, procrastination is the thief of time, (and business, and money) and before we know it, Easter will be upon us. The wrong kind of egg will be on your face if the Easter Sunday roast is ruined through a faulty oven!
