frequently asked questions

1. Will BigTray offer package pricing for my new opening or remodel?

    Absolutely, just give us a call and we will be happy to review your plans and finalize your equipment list.

2. Can I buy smaller quantities than are shown on your site?

    BigTray sells primarily to the commercial foodservice industry, and we buy and sell at the case pack size to reduce costs. As such, we are not able to sell in quantities that are less than shown on our site.

3. I am not a restaurant. Can I still buy from you?

    Although our site is designed for the foodservice industry, we welcome your business. However, please note that our products are designed for commercial use and may not meet your expectations.

4. Will you engrave or imprint?

    Printing and engraving are best done locally, where you can easily view the product and samples. As such, we do not offer these services.

5. Will I be charged freight on backorders?

    Freight costs will be invoiced on a pro-rated basis as your order ships. No additional freight will be applied to backordered lines over your total freight amount (i.e. your total freight amount will not change, although we do spread out freight charges across all shipments).

6. How do I set up an account with BigTray?

    You can setup your own account. When you're ready to place an order, simply begin the checkout process. Anyone can setup their own account - and there's no need to contact us first.

7. How can I get a catalog?

    BigTray customers get our product mailings, but if you haven't purchased from us and would like to receive our catalog, click here.

8. Does your free shipping policy cover heavy pieces of equipment?

    Yes, we'll ship for free as long as your merchandise totals more than $250 and shipment is made within the 48 contiguous states. There is an extra charge for liftgate service to a non-commercial address in the event that you do not have a loading dock. This fee does not apply to commercial addresses.

9. I need to pay off a PO, can I get credit approval?

    BigTray does not offer credit terms, however, there are some exceptions for government and large institutions. If you meet these requirements and would like to pay by purchase order, please send an e-mail to [email protected]. One of our customer service representatives will contact you about applying for credit terms.

    Yes, though we'll process the return and associated credit separately from any new shipments.

    Please read our returns policy for more information about returns and credits.
