A pharmacist's dispensing room and shop must be clean, stylish and well-equipped. We can find the most cost-effective way to fund refurbishment and re-equipping

Table of Contents

As a dispensing chemist, you know that presenting fresh, clean and attractive surroundings for your customers, along with bringing in the latest equipment, can be a major expense for your practice - but it can be essential to ensure those customers don’t go elsewhere. At Rangewell, we can help you find solutions for refurbishment, using our contacts across the entire UK lending industry to provide the most cost-effective answers for your particular needs.

Work with the best equipment

Your dispensing area must have the latest technical equipment, your sales area needs stylish contemporary displays and lighting.

Asset Finance can be the most effective way to provide the equipment you need. Asset Finance covers a range of funding solutions, including:

Hire Purchase

Hire Purchase lets you acquire equipment straight away, with a single deposit payment. It then lets you spread the costs in regular monthly instalments over up to 5 years, after which you own the asset outright, making it ideal for items which have a high cost and a relatively long life.


Leasing works much like a rental agreement and lets you hire the equipment without having to buy it. Leasing can be ideal for technical equipment, as it can also include maintenance agreements - meaning that keeping your equipment in perfect condition remains the responsibility of the lender - helping you avoid any unexpected costs.

Both new and used equipment can be funded with Asset Finance solutions.

Borrowing to fund a refurbishment

A business loan could provide solutions for many types of refurbishment work, from simple redecoration to conversions and extensions, increasing your display floor space or providing facilities for additional practitioners. Both Secured and Unsecured business loans could provide cost-effective solutions.

“My chemist's shop was frankly tired when I took it over. The previous owner had not spent money on anything for years. It had a good location, but the old-fashioned layout and worn-out shopfront were putting people off.

A new shopfront and retail area were priorities, but new displays, lighting, flooring and building work added up to a sizeable investment.

Rangewell had the solutions. They know the pressure a retail chemist faces, and have the answers to them.”
