Is a Mobile Chiller the Same as a Freezer Trailer?

The term mobile chiller can actually be used to refer to a fridge or freezer trailer and a mobile (or portable) cold room.

At Icecool we hire both but the principal difference between the two is that the portable cold room is assembled in situ allowing us to set these up in relatively tight spaces or where access is narrow.

The fridge or freezer trailer, or course, is just that: a towable walk-in fridge or freezer which is delivered to your site by us and collected when you're done.

Typically a fridge or freezer trailer will be hired for ourdoor catering, country events and shows, or to locate adjacent to the kitchens of a pub, restaurant or hotel where it can be used as additional refrigerated or frozen storage.
