Refrigerated containers for sale and hire

We currently offer two types of refrigerated shipping containers (also known as reefers), including:

1. Marine machinery high-performance containers

These have a very wide temperature range, from +25°C to -25°C. As such, they’re a suitable option for a variety of different products and are always available for sale and hire.

2. Low-noise temperature-controlled containers

These also have a good temperature range, from +5°C to -25°C – and, thanks to their revolutionary design, they boast a range of additional benefits. For example, they create very little noise and are highly efficient – reducing power usage by 30% (compared to a standard refrigerated container).

These are both available in a range of sizes, including 10ft, 20ft, 30ft and 40ft, and feature:

  • fully-lockable double doors or butcher’s doors
  • an internal emergency door release mechanism
  • outer doors with a container lock-box for added security (if required)
  • a ‘man-trapped’ alarm
  • aluminium chequer-plate flooring
  • interior lighting
  • emergency lighting

Depending on your specific needs, our temperature-controlled containers can also be fitted with an aluminium ramp and security grills. They’re available for a highly competitive price and can either be delivered to a UK address of your choice or collected from one of our depots across the country.
