Refrigerated Containers – Reefer Containers

Refrigerated containers, also known as reefer containers, are a fantastic cost effective way to expand your warehouse. They are electric powered temperature controlled containers that can be delivered to your site.  The most common sizes are 20′ and 40′ in length and they are usually about 8′ wide and 8.5′ tall.  Whether you are remodeling, moving your business, have a short term need, or looking for long term extra warehouse space…refrigerated containers could be your best option.

20′ 8′ 8.5′ 160 square feet 1,360 cubic feet
40′ 8′ 8.5′ 320 square feet 2,720 cubic feet

Refrigerated containers are a nice alternative to diesel powered refrigerated trailers.  The 20′ reefer containers can operate on single phase electric and the 40′ units usually operate on 3 phase.  They normally sit on the ground level and have swing doors but can also be adjusted for dock height applications by adding a chassis or even dropped right inside your warehouse in some cases.  They have a temperature range of -30 degrees F to 80 degrees F and are used for frozen items, fresh produce, or just temperature sensitive items.

Electric powered containers will save you the hassle of refueling a diesel powered trailer and the cost savings could be huge if your application is a long term requirement.  You can save up to $1,000 per month on fuel costs and usage fees and you don’t have to refuel every few days.  One reason customers might prefer a diesel powered refrigerated trailer would be in case the power goes out.  We have found in most cases power gets restored in just a few hours which is long before the temperature inside a weather tight unit will drop below a level which jeopardizes your inventory.  The most common reason we get service calls for any of our units is when a customer mistakenly runs out of diesel fuel.  The cost saving benefits usually outweigh the limitations.  If you don’t have the proper electric service on site you can often recoup the cost of having an electrician coming out to set it up within a month or two of rental or lease.

    I will be using for various uses, needing to keep computer/electronic/electrical equipment at a controlled level and a plus is a bathroom/cleanup area for employees, office space, break room, etc.
