    Refrigerated Containers

    Looking for a safe way to store or transport your food produce? We can help. Gap Containers is a leading UK supplier of refrigerated containers. From chilled fresh groceries to packaged frozen goods – we’ll ensure they stay at the required temperature and arrive in perfect condition.

    Refrigerated containers for sale and hire

    We currently offer two types of refrigerated Storage 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.

    How do refrigerated shipping containers work?

    It’s all down to air circulation. Essentially, a refrigeration unit is attached to the back of the container. This blows cool air into the system via the chequer-plated floor – which, due to its unique design, encourages the air to flow and distribute throughout the entire internal space.

    This process successfully maintains the temperature inside the refrigerated container – regardless of outside conditions. However, it’s important to note, a reefer cannot be used to reach the desired temperature or to cool produce. This must be done prior to loading.

    What goods can be shipped in a refrigerated container?

    Refrigerated shipping containers can be used to transport a wide range of temperature-sensitive goods. Most commonly, this includes perishable food items, such as:

    • fruit
    • vegetables
    • meat
    • fish
    • dairy products

    However, they can also be used to store and ship pharmaceuticals – thus maintaining the effectiveness of drugs whilst in transit – as well as a number of other non-food products (e.g. flowers, photography film).

    How much do refrigerated containers cost?

    The depends on several factors, including whether you choose to buy or rent, the size and quantity ordered, and the specific features required. But rest assured, here at Gap Containers, we strive to be as competitive as possible. All of our refrigerated containers are available for the best price on the market and we can work to most budgets.
