CMSS purchased an oven from Caterquip earlier on in the year. The money was awarded to CMSS from a Ward Grant.
Unfortunately due to recent changes in legislation the oven was not suitable for the space allocated in the Kitchen . After speaking with Dominic he arranged for it to be picked up and replaced it with another smaller oven. However CMSS is a charity for adults with disabilities and the oven was too complex with its digital monitor for the the clients to understand.
After a phone call to Dominic (one of many, I hasten to add) he arranged for someone to pick the oven up and Caterquip then delivered another one that was much simpler to use. It was PERFECT ! The clients have enjoyed baking scones and cakes and more recently showed off the oven to the Mayor of Hillingdon John Hensley and his wife Mayoress Diane Hensley.
Thank you to everyone at Caterquip who helped us to get the correct oven and especially to Dominic for answering my 100s of calls!

We were thrilled with the quality of the installation and the exceptional service we received from the Caterquip team. They managed the project efficiently from the design process to right through to the installation of the equipment, and delivered the project within the appointed timescale and budget.
Caterquip fully understood our requirements in terms of our catering operation, and communicated clearly at every step. The kitchen design was expertly planned, with careful consideration given to each area. The space was transformed into a fully-functional kitchen which would allow our kitchen staff to work with ease.
We saved thousands of pounds by using Caterquip’s services, and are still delighted with our kitchen. The pre-owned equipment supplied was not only cost-effective but in excellent condition and able to perform well under the strains of a busy commercial kitchen. We will certainly use Caterquip’s services again in future.

I would like to say a big thank you, on behalf of my company and Dagenham and Redbridge football club, for your help guidance and support from taking the time to come down to see me and your advice on what equipment to use, and more especially knowing what a small football club we are and how tight funds are the costs were kept to a minimum with kitchen now up and running hopefully the club will get additional income and continue to grow.

After designing my kitchen from the ground up, my boss decided a new Rational combi oven was out of reach for our budget. so I contacted Caterquip and purchased a superb Rational 10 grid combi oven with floor stand at a fantastic price. The machine is absolutely right for our kitchen and we are delighted with it. They were friendly, efficient and knew their stuff and will definitely be using Caterquip again in the future.

I felt I must write and say how very pleased we have been with all our dealings with Caterquip UK (Peterborough) LLP.
Fifteen months ago we approached you with the request for a flight dishwasher. Your assistance was invaluable; you helped us choose the right one for our needs, you delivered on time, the installation was very good and your aftercare has been second to none. Shortly after this we approached you again with a request for a deep fat flyer for our Junior School. Once again you did not let us down and your care in dealing with this request from the choice of fryer right through to the delivery and aftercare was exceptional.
Thank you for all your assistance and we would not hesitate to use you again in the future.
Dudley Johnson, Catering Manager – The Royal School, Hazelmere, 2012
Buying from Caterquip has been a great experience from start to finish, their service has been excellent. My purchase was not straightforward as I had lots of questions and requirements but the communication from them has been really fast and really helpful. The item I bought is perfect and at a really great price, so thanks for all of your help!

I would just like to take the time to thank you for the service that you have provided for us here at Witchford Village College. Caterquip have been excellent in their sales, delivery and after sales. I will definitely be using you again for any future catering equipment requirements.
Gavin Peasey – Witchfiord Village College, Ely, 2011
We were looking for a commercial kitchen on a tight budget, we found Caterquip on the web, met with Dominic and the team and were treated very well, as we changed our minds so many times. The delivery driver was so nice and polite, a great ambassador for the company. We did have a bit of a problem with one of the fridges it turned into a freezer, but within 24 hours we had a repalcement unit no arguments just done, sometimes you remember companies with how they put problems right better than when it all goes swimmingley well. We at TC’s adventure will definitely use Caterquip when we extend our catering facilities. Thank you again.
Karen & Jayne – TC’s Adventure, 2011
Hoxton Apprentice Ltd was established and run as a social enterprise by the charity, Training For Life, we’re a commercial restaurant serving great food in airy and relaxed surroundings. We also provide apprenticeships for unemployed people from the surrounding communities.
Recently our fryer broke down beyond any economical repair; luckily, Caterquip kindly exchanged with us a second hand Rational in return for this needed fryer. Dominic is fantastic by helping us to complete the deal that we are extremely happy with.
I would recommend Caterquip to anyone interested in buying catering equipment

Following a 5 year project to build a fabulous Bar Restaurant and Function room called ‘The 12 Lost Churches’ here at Cliff House Holiday Park in Dunwich Suffolk (www.cliffhouseholidays.co.uk) we needed to fit out the kitchens completely from scratch. Having been horrified at the prices being quoted for a new kitchen I took some advice from another company in the hospitality market who recommended Caterquip to us. Dominic from Caterquip called out, helped plan and then priced up a superb kitchen for us at around half the price new would of cost. After fitting they made sure that everything worked perfectly and I have no hesitation in recommending them to others. If in any doubt come to Cliff House and have a look!

Rob Meylan – Royal Beacon hotel, Exmouth, 2010
I recently purchased a dishwasher from Caterquip and I have to say the service that I received was second to none. The advice and help I received was excellent and the delivery and follow up was faultless and pleasingly swift. A pleasure doing business with them and Caterquip will be my first port of call for any catering equipment and my general requirements.
Andrew & Derryn Crookes – Teapots, Solney, 2009
I run a fine dining catering business and my entire kitchen is now fitted with reconditioned equipment. The best advantage a new enterprise could ever have is the ability to save money sensibly whilst getting the right equipment to get things started. Caterquip UK understood my plight straight away and supplied me with upright fridges, racking, prep tables, a combi oven and a gas range within a week of calling and gave me a peace of mind solution. I would highly recommend Caterquip to both a start up entrepreneur or established professional operation. The whole thing was made easy and their follow up customer care has been swift and thorough.
Paul – Cooking At Yours, Lincolnshire, 2009
With our 800,000 visitors a year to the Showground, catering is an important revenue stream. We have built up a good relationship with Caterquip over the last 4 years and are impressed with the quality and reliability of equipment and service provided.
Alan, FHCIMA FBII, General Manager – East of England Showground, 2009
I found caterquip by accident actually. I was hesitant at first as it was reconditioned equipment and I had never used it before but I was pleasently surprised and a lot looked as good as new. There were the inevitable teething problems with some pieces of equipment but caterquip were quick to rectify them for us and the equipment is now being used to its full capacity. I wouldn’t hesitate using caterquip again as the service and knowledge of the staff is very helpful and friendly. I’ve even given there details on to a couple of chefs I know who are looking for some equipment.
Adam – Hat & Feathers, London, 2009
We found Caterquip on the internet and were impressed with what we saw. We contacted the office and were pleased with the knowledge of the staff. There was a little hesitation about buying reconditioned equipment although we found the equipment to be as Caterquip said, very clean and well tested and they saved us some money.
Mark & Ryan – Inn or Out Ltd, London, 2007
We were recommended to Caterquip by a friend, we made our enquiry to the office and they then sent us photos of the equipment that we interested in, and we purchased all of the equipment without even viewing it, we were impressed when it arrived. Using Caterquip saved us time and money, we didnt have to go all over the country looking for equipment.
Harry – The Sportsman, Chatteris, 2007
Thank you for all you help the equipment is great.
Helen – High Lodge, Suffolk, 2006
We were a bit worried about buying from the internet and also worried about the equipment being second hand, but our worries were soon put to rest after we were assured that all the equipment was very well serviced and cleaned. when our order was delivered we were very pleased with the way the equipment looked, we had a lot of equipment and the minor teething issues were swiftly sorted out. we’ll definitely use Caterquip again.
Danny – Kennedys Diner, Scotland, 2006
We found the perfect catering equipment from Caterquip, we were very pleased when it arrived with three months guarantee and everything is perfect. There aftercare service is just as good as the sale of the equipment.
Andy – Festival Hire, Bucks, 2005
We found a piece of equipment on the website, we called the Caterquip office to check availability as we needed this item in a hurry, we thought we would be out of luck especially as we are on the isle of wight, but to our suprise they were able to supply and deliver within 4 days. Thankyou.

Thank you once again.
Roland Ballard – Muddy Boots Real Foods LTD, 2009
I am happy to recommend caterquip to anyone within the trade. The service i recieved when looking for a new oven was second to none. From the outset i spoke to Dominic who couldnt have been more helpful to us as we were having great trouble finding a range running on LPG fuel. Not only did they source one immediately but the price was fantastic well over £1000 less than i was quoted elsewhere.
Although it took a few weeks longer than first expected to arrive Dominic kept in contact to let us know what was happening. When it arrived the range was very carefully packed & the delivery company were very helpful with siting the oven.
As I have already stated I already recommend caterquip as a first choice for equipment & have no doubts that I will deal with them again in the future. a pleasure to meet an honest company.
Steve Dutch, 2009
Hi Dominic, I just wanted to say a big thanks for helping me out on the equipment, sorry to stress you about needing it so quick The weekend went really well, we had the guys still here on Thursday connecting the equipment. All of the guests were fed and watered and all left happy. I will definetly use you again but give you a bit more notice next time.
Dave Hughes – Eat & Live, 2005

We are pleased to recommend Caterquip
David Singleton – Billys and Barneys bars and restaurants, 2005

Claire Edwards – Withden Farm Bakery, 2009
Just a few words of thanks for the response to our problems when we needed a chiller for storing bait at the shop. When we phoned to place an order after viewing your website we were told of the products in detail and deliveryschedule. The first chiller was found to be damaged on delivery and on contacting yourself we had another delivered early on the Saturday morning. I again thank you all at caterquip for your help and prompt conclusion of business. When we or others are in need of equipment for the kitchen or bait shop i will be happy to recommend Caterquip.
