In the early morning hours of Friday, August 22, smoke began rising from a refrigerated trailer parked at a festival site in Toledo, Ohio (USA). What nearby residents did not know was that a faulty refrigeration unit had started a fire that would destroy the contents of the trailer: 1.5 tonnes of German potato salad made by volunteers in preparation for Toledo's annual German Potato Salad Festival. Thank goodness emergency fridge rental was standing by.

You have many options in the UK when it comes to refrigerated trailer rentals. There are companies of all sizes offering trailers, walk-in cold rooms, and temporary freezers. Keep in mind that the portable cold storage business is no different from any other. Some companies excel, others are average, and still others are not worth doing business with. At Icecool Trailers, we believe that we offer the finest sales and equipment in Berkshire, London, Birmingham, South Wales, and beyond. Yet we would not expect you to take our word for it. Our regular clients are the kinds of people who research and compare before choosing a service provider.
The topic of walk-in cold rooms is most often discussed in relation to restaurants, caterers, and others who provide food service of one sort or another. Yet a recent call from one of our clients in Berkshire served as a reminder that portable refrigeration and freezing is sometimes necessary for industrial purposes as well. Food is not the only thing customers store in our refrigerated trailers and cold rooms.
