Do I have to insure the Trailer or Cold Room?

The short answer: No, All of our units are insured by Icecool Trailers whilst on site with you.

However, it is important to note that the contents of the Fridge Trailer or Cold Room is not insured by us and therefore it is the customers responsibility to cover this.

All of our units are lockable and therefore provide a level of security to the contents you have stored in the fridge trailer or cold room.

It is still recommended that you look into insuring your own contents especially if you are using our storage units at public events such as horse shows and agricultural fairs.

Do You Hire Fridge Trailers For Weddings?

Yes, indeed we do. About 40% of our business comes from weddings, garden parties and other seasonal outdoor events.

Our fridge trailers are ideal for cool storage of wines, champagne, beer and food as the internal temperature of the fridge trailer can be regulated very easily.

For storing wines and champagnes on a hot summer's day, simply set the internal temperature control to around 7 or 8 degrees Celsius to enjoy your champagne and white wines at their best. This temperature will work well for beers and food too.

For large weddings and events, you may wish to consider hiring a couple of trailers so one can be used to store food, white wines, champagnes and beers while the other can be used to keep red wines at a comfortable temperature (the French would say that's about 16-18 degrees Celsius - or chambré which means 'room temperature' but a couple of centuries ago large French houses were probably not that warm!).

After all, there are few things in life worse than warm beer or cold red wine! Keep your cool on your wedding day with a fridge trailer from Icecool and everything will just go swimmingly. When it's all over, we'll come along and remove the trailer. Simples....

Do You Offer Refrigerated Van Hire?

No, we don't. We hire refrigerated trailers in preference to refrigerated van hire for a number of reasons:

  • 1. The cost of refrigerated van hire is typically higher than the cost of refrigerated trailer hire.
  • 2. Our fridge trailers are delivered right onto site for you and collected when you're done with them, leaving you to get on with your work rather than having to collect and return a refrigerated or freezer van.
  • 3. Our fridge trailers (and freezer trailers) are often hired for long durations; hiring a refrigerated van for several weeks would not be economically viable, whereas long term fridge trailer hire from Icecool is extremely competitive.
  • 4. There are no fuel costs for the hirer when choosing an Icecool trailer; our hire cost is all-inclusive of delivery and collection.
  • 5. It's not unknown for hire vehicles to breakdown! The last thing you need when you have a refrigeration emergency is for the van to break down or a wheel to come off. All Icecool trailers are delivered by 4x4 vehicles (regularly maintained and serviced) and yes, we carry spare wheels!

How does freezer room hire work?

Our freezer room hire service works in a very similar way to our fridge and freezer trailer hire service.

Usually a customer will contact us with the following information:

  • Location for the freezer room
    • We need the exact location / postcode (Not 'in my back yard')
  • Duration of the hire
    • Remember that longer duration rentals will work out far more cost-effective
    • Some of our customers rent freezer rooms and chillers for a year or more
  • Special requirements / difficulties with access etc.
    • Whilst our portable freezer rooms are modular, we might struggle to get the panels into some tight spaces

We will then price the job (always competitively, of course) and provide a fully-inclusive quote.

The modular cold room or freezer room is then delivered to your site and assembled in situ by our own fully insured and qualified personnel. We ensure that the power supply is connected and working, and that the freezer room is ready for your use.

When you're done with your freezer room (or cold room/ chiller), we dismantle the entire unit and remove it from your site.

To get a competitive quote, call us now on 01635 250 950 - we're here to help and we don't think you'll find better service anywhere.

We offer two sizes of modular cold rooms/ freezer rooms: 1.8M and 3.0M

How much does a fridge trailer or freezer trailer cost to hire?

The cost of our hire services is very much dependant on your requirements.

Things we take into consideration:

  • Location for the unit
    • We need an exact location and postcode
  • Duration of the hire time
    • This obviously changes the cost
    • An important note is that longer hire times are more cost effective
  • Special requirements and difficulties we might have
    • There could be a variety of issues and needs
      • we recommend contacting us for more information on this
    • Keep in mind although our cold rooms are assembled on site to fit small areas they need some space for assembly

This will depend on a number of factors, such as your location, the duration of the hire and the time of year. Because everyone's need is slightly different it is not practical or possible for us to list prices, so we ask you to call us on 01635 250 950 or contact us via our enquiry form.

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.

Whereas, our chiller rooms (also called cool rooms, cold rooms and freezer rooms) will usually be assembled inside a property (hotel, pub, restaurant kitchen area).

What Generator Do I Need?: Temporary Refrigeration

Our Fridge Trailers, Freezer trailers and Cold Rooms all require at least 3kw of power.

The generator must be capable of delivering this continually, and therefore should be of a higher output than required.

Do not attempt using a generator that provide less power than listed. Otherwise you risk spoiling your products as our units will not be able to function properly!

A good general use generator we would recommend is from HSS.

They are more than adequate to run up to 2 of our trailers and therefore will be able to suit your needs perfectly.

 

Follow the link below for the recommended generator:

HSS 10kVA Silenced Diesel Generator

Small Petrol Generators are not adequate to run our units and we recommend you research when making your decision on what generator to use.

We really can't stress it anymore, it is important you choose the correct generator!

If in doubt please call us on 01635 250 950, we are more than happy to help you make your selection.

 

Icecool Trailers delivers all across the country, we have a fantastic location just off of the M4 and the A34 allowing us to cover the southern half of Britain very quickly.

What is a fridge trailer?

Icecool fridge trailers are purpose-built refrigeration units built into a twin-axle towable trailer.

They are wired with lighting and are powered from a standard 240v 13 amp and (usually a 16 amp 240v outdoor weatherproof power socket).

Our trailers are fitted with locks and a rear step for easier access.

Shelf racking is fitted to all trailers making them an ideal walk-in mobile fridge.

They are ideal as temporary refrigeration in the event of equipment breakdown, or just as an additional cold storage facility for food and drinks.

We have had our units hired for a number of reasons including horse shows, agricultural fairs and restaurant solutions.

Contact us now, we are certain we can help find a solution for you.


What is the difference between a trailer and a cold room?

Our fridge and freezer trailers are towed to your venue/ location and set up for use by us.

A cold room or freezer room is installed by us at your premises or venue.

Typically, a trailer will be used outside a premises (perhaps adjacent to the kitchens or by a marquee at a show), whereas our cold rooms and freezer rooms can be installed inside or outside.

Example of a fridge trailer:

{module_webapps,1841,i,182140} 

Example of a modular cold room (installed):

{module_webapps,1841,i,182141}

Our cold rooms and freezer rooms are made of independent panels which Icecool staff assemble making an installed cold room (or freezer room). The trailers require very little setting up.

Modular cold rooms are usually used in locations where a trailer is not appropriate.

Which areas of the UK do you cover?

We will try, wherever possible and depending on current demand, to supply you with a fridge or freezer trailer if you are in the 'southern half' of the UK.

Often, we can provide same day refrigeration hire and sometimes even within a couple of hours (especially for emergency refrigeration replacement following a fridge or freezer breakdown).

We don't have any specific supply area and have recently delivered our trailers as far north as Sheffield and as far southwest as Exeter, although typically most of work clusters around the M4 corridor from Central London to South Wales, down to south coast and up to Birmingham and the Midlands (and all places in between along the M40/ M42 and M5 routes).

Deliveries to Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk are not uncommon either.

Usually, we'll be able to help you with any temporary refrigeration needs and as each request is different it really does pay to ask us even if you are outside of our normal area of operations.

Being so well-positioned (just off the M4 and A34 trunk routes), we can get to most places in the southern half of Britain the same day, depending on when you contact us.

Because refrigeration breakdowns are not just confined to business hours, we provide emergency fridge and freezer trailer hire/ replacement 24/7.

We are one of few companies in the UK to provide such a service.

We've listed a running feed of recent requests, deliveries and locations on our areas covered page.
