Reefers are an excellent investment for businesses that require portable cold storage or an on-site refrigeration solution. Available in 20' and 40' sizes, each container features an external electrical outlet, built-in insulation and adjustable temperature settings, ensuring perishables are safe from damage and spoilage.

Like all shipping containers, reefers are built to withstand the elements and rigorous demands of international transport. They are hard-wearing, long-lasting and low-maintenance, making them suitable for a wide range of industries and applications where cold storage is required.

Non-Working Condition

Additionally referred to as an insulated container, non-operational reefers are commonly used for the storage of temperature or moisture sensitive stock (i.e. dry foods, documents, books, wine, artwork and electronics). Each container features built-in insulation and a refrigeration component that has either been removed or is no longer in working condition.

Designed to maintain ambient internal temperatures even in extreme weather conditions, they are a popular choice for structural conversions (i.e. an outdoor room) and add ons.
