Refrigerated Containers for Rent in Cape Town
December 5, 2018 gnuworld

Refrigerated shipping containers, or reefers, are a quick and affordable way to expand or create cold storage in Cape Town. Reefers are ideal for outdoor use and, provided there’s sufficient ventilation, can be used indoors too – for example, in a warehouse or factory space.

What can a refrigerated container be used for?

A refrigerated container is designed to keep goods cool or frozen, at a stable temperature. A single unit can also be partitioned, with areas for chilled and frozen goods in the same container.

Refrigerated containers have uses across a range of industries. Here are just a few:

What are the benefits of buying or renting a refrigerated container?

With Big Box Containers, you can choose to buy a reefer to meet long-term cold storage needs.

Alternatively, you can rent a reefer in Cape Town – making it easy to get cold storage just for a period when you need it and without having to make a heavy, upfront capital investment.

Some of the benefits of our Cape Town refrigerated containers are that they’re:

  • affordable: a reefer is an affordable alternative to building a “brick and mortar” cold storage facility
  • durable: our marine-grade reefers are weather-resistant and tamper-proof
  • convenient: we’ll deliver a reefer directly to your premises
  • portable: a reefer can easily be moved to a new location if your business moves
  • instant: unlike building a cold store, a reefer provides instant cold storage
  • expandable: as your cold storage needs change, you can easily add more reefers.
