Rental & Contract Hire 

IceBox is a specialist provider of rental solutions to meet your refrigerated static storage and transportation requirements. The IceCube range of temperature controlled mini-containers is available for short term rental, contract hire and long term lease. 

The IceCube range spans units of 22 litre volume to 915 litres and offers top loading and front opening units. Chiller units, freezer units and heating units are available under short term rental contracts and long term leasing arrangements. 

All IceCube units are maintained to the highest standard; as a professional and recognised rental brand, we are proud of our quality standards which leads to a high level of repeat business and word of mouth referrals. The regular rotation of our IceCube units in order to maintain a clean and fresh rental stock provides a constant supply of ex-demo and nearly new units for sale at very competitive prices. 

Our rental stock is one of the largest in the country and our branch and partner network is steadily increasing with the aim of making IceBox the only supplier of refrigerated mini-container hire services with a truly national coverage.

So, whether you’re looking to rent an IceCube temperature controlled mini-container for additional low volume refrigeration storage to assist with outdoor catering, a festival organiser or pop up bar operator needing behind the scenes refrigeration or perhaps a food distributor or take-away operator requiring flexible in-transit refrigeration - IceBox has the solution you're looking for.

Call us on 0333 6000 800 to see how we can help with your refrigerated storage and transportation requirements.

Hire - How it Works

Our management team boasts more than 50 years experience within the asset rental industry. We understand hire and, importantly, we take the time to understand your needs. From the initial phone call through to delivery and subsequent collection of the IceCube unit, you're in safe hands. From the initial point of enquiry, our team will establish the best fit for your needs by talking through your plans and gaining a firm understanding of what your requirements are. Some of the things to think about are: 

  • What size of IceCube will best suit your needs?
  • How long will you need the IceCube unit for?
  • What temperature range do you need? 
  • How do you intend to power the IceCube unit?
  • Will you require shelving? 

​​These are just a few of the questions that we will need to obtain answers to and our friendly team will lead you through the process. You may also wish to have a look at our FAQ page.

Long Term Contract Hire

In addition to short term rental, we are also able to offer longer term contract hire options for those who may need to hire for longer periods but who cannot warrant the outright purchase of a IceCube unit or who do not wish to be responsible for re-sell / disposal costs. Often long term hire can be the perfect alternative to outright purchase.


We specialise in providing long-term rental solutions to consumers and to businesses of all types and sizes from periods of 6 to 24 months. We will deliver to your location and collect again once you've finished using the IceCube. Simply advise us of the type of IceCube required, the lease period required and we will provide a quotation accordingly. Should you require to keep the IceCube unit beyond that period, simply let us know and, subject to availability, we'll extend the rental period and pro-rate the rental rate initially applied. 

With IceBox's contract hire option, you get the benefit of low rental rates without the need to commit to lengthy contract periods over and above the period that you actually need the trailer. This is the perfect solution for businesses that have seasonal peaks in business volumes. At the end of the contract period, you can either talk to us about extending your contract or arrange for the unit to be collected.
