A refrigeration van can’t be used inside a property, although you may be able to house it in a garage or by the kitchens. Fridge van hire is more expensive than cold room hire because the client incurs fuel and vehicle maintenance costs which are loaded in to hire fees. Replacement of fuel used is mandatory. The client is responsible for the van’s collection and delivery so it has time implications too.

Fridge trailers are delivered to site by the hire firm, positioned as required and set up. They collect the unit. The firm absorbs the fuel and time costs which causes you minimum disruption. Fridge trailers are on wheels and can be positioned indoors or outside. Firms can park them in the car park, school playground or a hospital communal area, discreetly and professionally.

Hire wisely

The refrigeration and freezer hire market is hugely competitive.

Imagine that you shop around and three firms quote in the same price bracket and one is much lower. Do you go for the lowest price? It’s your choice but you should ask yourself why the low price is so low. It’s not because the other three firms are overcharging.  

The less expensive walk in cold rooms and freezers may be an attempt by a failing firm to attract business. Perhaps they don’t maintain facilities, adhere to legislation or their customer service is poor. This isn’t always the case but it should be questioned. Don’t fall in to a trap. Do your research.

Cheap and cheerful may cost more in the long term.

Professional walk in freezer and cold room hire firms will be delighted to answer your questions and to prepare a quote for you so please contact them now.
