Mobile refrigeration is vital for many industries as it ensures business continuity. In this article, we will explain why it is so important and the segments that require it the most.
What is Mobile Refrigeration?
Mobile refrigeration is the provision of temporary chiller trailer or freezer trailer to organisations requiring additional or replacement temperature controlled facilities quickly. For ease of delivery and setup, the units are manufactured as towable trailers in a range of sizes ensuring that the right unit can be on-site with the customer with minimal fuss and maximum efficiency.
All refrigerated trailers are delivered and commissioned by a mobile service representative and collected at the end of the required period as part of the service.
Who needs this type of service?
For a wide range of industries from food storage to pharmaceuticals, maintaining a certain temperature of stock is vital to successful business continuity and ensuring compliance with industry specific storage legislation.
Having a contingency solution on standby – whether you are planning a kitchen or laboratory refurbishment or have an emergency breakdown of your own equipment – is imperative to ensure that stock is not compromised, standards are maintained and the service that you deliver to your clients is entirely uninterrupted.
How can you ensure you can get the help that you need when you need it the most?
Utilising a mobile refrigeration service is both cost effective and flexible. Hiring refrigerated trailers to be brought to your business, is a stress free way of ensuring you can continue with your business activities without interruption.
How are trailers delivered and set up?
Trailers are delivered, set up on stable surfaces, powered up and set to your exact specification so that they are ready to be used immediately. They can be delivered with internal shelving and racking in place in accordance with each customer’s individual requirements, to help you maintain a standardised working space whilst in use. Once the trailer is no longer required, a mobile service representative will collect at the end of the agreed rental period.
How are the trailers powered?
Depending on your location requirements, the trailers can either be connected to an existing 13A power supply or, where this option is not possible, can be powered by a standalone generator that can be provided as part of the rental contract.
