The Benefits of Hiring a Refrigerated Trailer

Refrigerated Trailer

Trailers are an excellent choice if you are attending an industry event or festival or need temporary refrigeration for your business. Trailers are different from refrigerated vans because they are generally static and usually attached to a local power source rather than running off the van engine itself.

If you operate a wedding planning service and are holding the event outside, for example, access to a refrigerated van makes perfect sense for keeping food and drinks chilled. Bars and restaurants that require additional refrigeration will find installing and running a trailer temporarily the most economical option.

Quick Delivery When You Need It

Refrigerated trailers offer you a large, chilled storage space that can be easily connected to a local power source. If you need one in an emergency, at FridgeXpress we can have one on-site in next to no time.

For example, let’s say you run a meat preparation business and your existing refrigerator breaks down or you require more space. A fridge trailer can quickly be delivered to your forecourt and hooked up to the local power supply, ready for use.

Keep Refrigeration Costs Down

Today’s refrigerated trailers are not only high-quality and easy to use, but they can also help keep your costs down. You might want to hire a trailer because you’re attending a festival where you will be serving food and you need somewhere close by you can store your stock safely.

If you have goods that are likely to spoil quickly such as fish products, ensuring that you have storage available is critical and can save you money by preventing the need to throw out stock. You will often see refrigerated trailers in areas like fish markets where high quantities of goods pass through all the time and need to be kept at a specific temperature.

Trailers Can be Located Anywhere

As long as there is a local power source and enough room, you can put your trailer practically anywhere. You’ll see them at events and festivals, outside restaurants and bars at busy times, at weddings and functions all around the UK. Trailers can quickly be cooled down to between -10 and -20⁰C and provide a secure and safe way to store a wide variety of products.

Buy or Hire Your Refrigerated Trailer?

One question we always get asked is whether it’s best to buy or hire a refrigerated trailer. A lot will depend on how often you use the trailer and its purpose in your business. Hiring is the best and most cost-effective option if you only need a trailer for special events or once in a while to deal with extra stock. You don’t have to find a place to store it when not in use or incur the bigger cost of purchasing outright.
