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 point of enquiry, our reservation team will endeavour to establish the best fit for your needs by talking through your plans and gaining a firm understanding of what your requirements are.

We will deliver the trailer to site, power it up to ensure that your desired temperature is set and lock it in place for security and peace of mind. At the end of the rental period, we will attend site and collect the trailer. 

From the initial enquiry to the end of rental refrigerated trailer collection, you couldn’t be in safer hands. 

Some of the things to think about:

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.

  • How many people will be attending?
  • What size of trailer will best suit your needs?
  • Are you using external caterers for your event or is this being handled in-house?
  • How long will you need the refrigerated trailer for?
  • What temperature range do you need?
  • Will there be clear unobstructed access for us to deliver the trailer?
  • How do you intend to provide power for the trailer?
  • Will you require shelving? If so, to one side or both sides.

Longer Term Contract Hire

In addition to short term refrigerated trailer hire, 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 trailer or who do not wish to be responsible for re-sell / disposal costs and other overheads brought about by ownership. 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 3 to 36 months. We will deliver to your location and collect again at the end of the contract period. 

To make a booking enquiry, simply advise us of the type of trailer required, the period for which you are willing to commit and we will provide a quotation accordingly. Should you require to keep the trailer beyond the initial contract period, simply let us know and, subject to availability, we’ll extend the rental period and pro-rata the rate initially applied.

Emergency & Scheduled Maintenance

Our refrigerated trailer hire service doesn’t only apply to events and parties. As specialists in the arena. we are the perfect choice when seeking a solution to commercial kitchen emergencies and/or planned maintenance.

We partner with a large number of hotels, restaurants, fast food outlets, care homes, theme parks, football clubs and many other corporate clients who operate commercial kitchens to provide both emergency response services and also scheduled maintenance support services. In the unfortunate event of fridge or freezer failure, our trailers provide the perfect emergency solution – often we are able to respond and be onsite within a matter of a few hours. Similarly, should your own commercial kitchen facilities be undergoing routine scheduled maintenance, our trailers will provide the perfect support during the period of maintenance downtime.
