The Godolphin SchoolWe're Utility Rentals and you're in safe hands
“We have always used Utility Rentals…the parts and labour breakdown warranty they provide with the appliances is a high advantage to us. If there is a problem with any of the appliances, then Utility Rentals arrange for it to be fixed. Also, the payment can be spread out over a number of years…which suits our budget.”

The Godolphin School
The Godolphin School has been providing education to girls aged between 3 and 18 for almost three centuries. Godolphin offers a vast range of subjects including English, Maths, Science, as well as Art & Design, Modern Foreign Languages and Food Technology. But ensuring each department has high quality equipment that’s always up to date can be difficult, especially with a limited budget available. That’s why schools like Godolphin acquire their equipment such as white goods, hand dryers and sewing machines from Utility Rentals.
Utility Rentals help schools to acquire equipment through their flexible and affordable rental contracts. By renting equipment, schools can obtain the equipment they need immediately, using just their revenue budget, as the cost is spread across a 3 or 5 year period.
Schools no longer have to compromise on the quality of their equipment or acquire equipment gradually over a number of years, which can be a lengthy and frustrating process. The rental payments are made annually and as they remain static for the duration of the rental, schools can not only budget accordingly, but they are also protected against inflation.
With the rental of equipment from Utility Rentals, schools are not just provided with high quality appliances, but Utility Rentals also include delivery of the appliances to the school, installation of the appliances to existing connections, as well as the disconnection, removal and disposal of any existing appliances. Plus, Utility Rentals also provide a full parts and labour breakdown warranty for the duration of the rental period, ultimately ensuring schools aren’t left responsible for an unexpected repair costs during the life of the appliance.
Godolphin School have been renting their Food Technology appliances from Utility Rentals for many years and together they have built a great working relationship. Catherine Complin, Head of Food Technology at Godolphin explains, “We have always used Utility Rentals. They offer a great rental facility to schools and always provide literature with choice of both gas and electric cookers for us to choose from when we are looking to acquire new appliances. We decided to rent our equipment rather than purchase them outright because the parts and labour breakdown warranty they provide with the appliances is a high advantage to us. If there is a problem with any of the appliances, then Utility Rentals arrange for it to be fixed. We can have a variety of models within the department and we then have the option of replacing them on a new rental contract, at the end of the minimum term of the rental. This enables us to always have up to date cookers, rather than being left with very old and out of date models.”
Catherine went on to say, “Also, the payment can be spread out over a number of years, rather than a huge outlay all at once for brand new cookers, which suits our budget.
Utility Rentals are available on the phone and by email whenever we require them and they always respond quickly to enquiries. We have never had a problem with Utility Rentals, their service is great and as a result we would happily recommend them to other schools looking to acquire new equipment.”
