REFRIGERATED CONTAINERS FOR CATERING

The demands of modern commercial catering are forcing many companies to be creative about their storage solutions. For example, businesses that provide food for events often need to precisely control the temperature of their stock's environment to avoid spoilage. It can also be necessary for them to expand their storage capacity to meet demand on a short-term basis. One of the best solutions to economically meet this goal is to lease temperature-controlled containers.

Refrigerated containers have been utilised by companies operating in the catering industry for many years. Here is a summary of the most relevant facts about this type of storage and its potential applications in this industry:

What are the main benefits of storage containers for catering companies?

Mobile containers with self-powered refrigeration systems allow catering providers to store ingredients and produce in optimal conditions. In addition, refrigerated containers are very practical and include technical features that simplify the loading and unloading process, they can also be used to expedite the delivery operation and allow companies to serve more customers. Finally, this type of cold storage is far more affordable than traditional facilities, so adopting it creates a steady foundation for growth.

How reliable are refrigerated containers?

Spacewise containers are manufactured from high-quality materials and equipped with excellent cooling systems. As a result, they are suitable for storing an extensive range of cargo, from perishable produce to sensitive equipment. Once the temperature is set, it will be maintained at a constant level.

What types of goods can be stored inside refrigerated containers?

Refrigerated containers are an excellent choice to store practically any temperature-sensitive goods, although they are most commonly used to hold food and drinks. In particular, caterers often lease them to preserve raw ingredients, vegetables, fruits, seafood, meat, ice cream, and cakes. It’s also common for catering companies to use containers on location where they need to serve full meals. Combined with mobility, security, and simplicity of use, this kind of flexibility makes cold containers a logical solution for catering businesses of any scale.

What are the specifications of a typical container?

The temperature range inside of a Spacewise refrigerated container can be maintained at anywhere between -35°c to +30°c.

Our units come in various sizes, with the length of our containers ranging between 10 and 40 ft.

As an optional extra, we can provide a remote monitoring system, which can be conveniently accessed via a mobile phone, tablet or PC from almost anywhere in the world.

I wish to say Spacewise (Sharon) response time is superb (even whilst she is on holiday!) and time between my enquiry and quote provided is remarkably quick.

Equipment delivery is good quality and clean. Commissioning (usually next day unless otherwise organised) is complete by suitably qualified engineers and an ‘operating’ explanation given to the end user.

In addition their after-sales support is very good, tech. offering advice and engineer if deemed appropriate.

We contacted Spacewise to supply us with 2 refrigeration storage units on behalf of the client and their bar supplier as a long hire during the peak season. We haven’t experienced a single problem with them and we have found the team to be helpful and reliable at all times, particularly Sharon Rimell whom we have been liaising with. Happy bar company, happy client! They come highly recommended.
