Icecool Trailers - 21-Jul-2014
The portable cold storage business is made up of two types of clients: those who need equipment for a planned event and those who need help with an emergency. Believe it or not, the base of our business is the first group. Thus, we often find ourselves helping clients weigh the costs of walk-in freezer hire against its benefits. The cost of renting a portable freezer unit runs far deeper than just the bottom line price a company pays for the rental. There are so many other things to consider. For example, what is the cost of renting versus buying? Alternatively, what is the cost of losing business because you do not have enough cold storage capacity? These are just two of the questions to consider when weighing the cost of temporary cold storage.

Portable Refrigeration: Making Festivals a Reality

Icecool Trailers - 18-Jun-2014
We're sure you are aware that the UK will be home to dozens of outdoor festivals this summer. For example, the Party in the Park concerts hosted by local radio stations will cover nearly every major city from London to Cardiff to Edinburgh.
