Over the last thirty years, Ancaster Food Equipment has become an industry leader in commercial refurbishing. Ancaster Food Equipment has been proudly serving businesses in Markham, Vaughn, Toronto and across Canada. We have perfected our process, to bring our customers reliable and affordable refrigeration. Our focus is fully refurbished True® commercial coolers and freezers. Since True® is a leader in refrigeration, the units are made of high quality materials that have been built to last.
Our team of True® certified technicians have perfected the re-manufacturing process. We remove and replace all of the existing components, and replace them with brand new OEM parts. To be clear, we don’t just replace the parts that no longer work. All of the interior components are replaced. Each of our coolers and freezers undergo extensive testing, which allows our team to closely monitor the status of the unit(s). This step of the process ensures that no commercial cooler, or freezer leaves our warehouse if it does not meet and hold proper food safe temperatures. Once the unit has passed the testing portion of the refurbishing process, the coolers and freezers then get a full aesthetic upgrade. Our team applies new vinyl to the exterior, as well as a fresh coat of paint. The final step is adding new lighting. Once the coolers/freezers are out of production, they look and run like a brand new True® unit.
Ancaster Food Equipment stands behind the units that we rebuild in our Brantford warehouse, which is why we are able to offer a full coverage warranty. We offer our customers a seven (7) year warranty on the compressor, and two (2) years on all parts and service. For customers located in Markham, your refurbished cooler/freezer will be serviced by one of our True® certified in house technicians.
While our primary focus is our refurbished coolers and freezers, we also carry brand new equipment. We work with suppliers from across the world to give our customers the best options in commercial refrigeration. Refrigeration is the backbone to businesses like restaurants, pet stores and convenience stores, and without reliable refrigeration the operation isn’t able to run smoothly. If a commercial cooler or freezer goes down, there is no time to wait. This is why we are able to offer same day shipping for commercial units that are in stock.
Customer satisfaction is a top priority for Ancaster Food Equipment. We guarantee prompt response times and unbeatable customer service. Our team of sales agents have vast product knowledge on all of the brands that we carry. Our sales team knows all of the right questions to ask, making sure each customer gets exactly what they want.
Our portable sinks have been growling in popularity over the last few years. These sleek and easy to clean units are made of high quality 304 gauge stainless steel. Our portable sinks make a great addition to any outdoor event, food truck, or any space that requires additional hand washing stations. Our units have the largest waste, and fresh water tanks on the market. We have sold to trusted partners like The Canadian Red Cross. Each portable sink comes with a one year parts warranty, to set the minds of our customers at ease.
We carry add-ons for the portable sinks to further improve the functionality of the units. Take a look at our optional add-ons page! We typically have these units in stock and ready to ship within a few days.
If you are purchasing a portable sink, or refurbished cooler or freezer, we invite you to come to our warehouse in Brantford. Our warehouse is open Monday-Friday from 9am- 3pm. If you would like to visit us on a Saturday, we request that customers book an appointment. Please note that since we do not have a showroom, we do have brand new units on display.
Ancaster Food Equipment will accept payment by credit card, e transfer, wire transfer, PayPal or cheque. In order to begin the refurbishing of any freezer/cooler we require a 50% deposit. For any brand new equipment, we require payment in full.
We work with a few companies to offer both financing, and rentals. We have a 0% financing for 3 months on brand new equipment, and 6 months on fully refurbished coolers and freezers. We have longer term financing available in 12, 24 and 36 months. Ancaster Food Equipment has partnered with SilverChef to offer the Rent, Try, Buy program. This option allows customers to test out the equipment for a 52 week term. At the end of the term, customers can buy the equipment outright, continue to rent for an additional 2, or 3 years, or simply return the equipment if it no longer suits your needs. We have recently started offering short term rentals for customers within our delivery range, including our Markham customers!
"I own a 40 seat restaurant in Elora. At 4:40 pm on Thursday it was determined that our fridge was beyond repair. I called Ancaster Food Equipment at 4:43pm. Amanda explained that their products typically have a 8-10 business day turn around. I needed something immediately. She spoke to her manager and found a solution. By 1:00pm Friday our “new” True fridge was installed. The delivery team was polite and careful(I didn’t catch their names unfortunately) In our industry every business claims to have our back, but in the final hour this is often not true. Ancaster Food Equipment is the exception. From now on our business will deal with them for all our appliance needs. And, if you put a new fridge next to our refurbished unit, I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. Thanks again to Amanda and Ancaster Food Equipment"
"This was my first time buying a counter top cooler for my home and I was incredibly impressed by the level of knowledge and professionalism from Ancaster. They provided exceptional service throughout the buying process and I would recommend them to anybody looking for fridges or coolers"
