Is it possible to fit a pallet through the freezer door?

That would depend on the size of the pallet, but in most cases, the answer would be no as you’d need to fit it through a door, which isn’t very wide. With that said, you won’t have the need to fit a pallet into your newly hired freezer room as it will come with an adequate number of shelves to keep everything organized.

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.

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 included in the hiring cost of the emergency refrigeration service?

Whether you want to hire a refrigerated trailer, a cold room, or any of our other services, the quoted price will include delivery, installation, maintenance, and collection of the unit. Upon delivery, our team will also supply you with all the cables and tools necessary to operate and run your newly hired refrigeration unit.

What is included in the refrigerated trailer hire cost?

The quote you receive based on your requirements will include the delivery and collection of the fridge trailer from your site, the installation, as well as all the cables, tools, and equipment necessary to make the most out of the newly hired trailer.

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:


Example of a modular cold room (installed):


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.

You can find more information about our temporary refrigeration solutions here.

What power supply does my freezer trailer require?

All of our chiller trailers can be plugged into 13 or 16 AMP systems. If you don’t have direct access to electricity, you can also use a generator to power up your freezer trailer.

What power supply is needed to power up the fridge trailer?

If you have access to the power grid, you’ll need to plug the trailer in using a 13 AMP 3-pin socket or a 16 AMP C-form socket. In case you don’t have access to the power grid, you can use a power generator to power up the trailer.

What power supply is required?

To power up one of our cold rooms, you’ll need either a 16 AMP ‘C’ form socket or a 13 AMP 3-pin socket. If your site is in a remote location without direct access to electricity, you can also use a power generator to power it up.

What power supply is required?

Both our 1.8m and 3.0m modular freezer rooms can be powered up through either a 13 AMP 3-pin or a 16 AMP ‘C’ form socket. They can also be powered up either directly through a power socket or via a portable generator.

Where can the fridge trailer be put?

Our chiller trailers can be parked up both indoors and outdoors. Where you want your fridge truck rental to be parked up and installed is completely up to you. With that said, it needs to be within 20m of the power supply or power generator you plan on using to power up the trailer.

Where can you put a freezer room?

Our freezer rooms specifically are designed for indoor use only. This is not only because they need to be placed on a flat surface, but also because they need access to power to operate.

Where can you put a freezer trailer?

Unlike our freezer rooms for hire, there are no strict rules about where you can or can’t put your freezer trailer. Whether you need it indoors or outdoors, the only real requirement is that you park it within 20m of a power source.

Where can you put a walk-in cold room?

Our walk-in modular cold rooms can be installed in a variety of places, depending on what you plan to use them for and the size of the cold room you decide to hire. Some examples include inside cafes, supermarkets, construction sites, and warehouses.

Which areas does your emergency refrigerator rental service cover?

We serve customers nationwide and have made deliveries as far north as Sheffield. With that said, the large majority of our customers are situated in the southern half of the UK. If you’d like to make an enquiry, regardless of your location in the UK, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We're just a phone call away.

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.

If in doubt, just call us on 01635 250 950

Will you help with the installation of the unit?

Upon delivery, our team will take care of the installation of the emergency unit that you have decided to hire. This will come at no extra cost to you.
