Frequently Asked Questions
- Is there racking in the trailer?
Both sides are racked as standard. If you wish to put pallets in the trailer, just let us know so we can remove some, or all of the racking to make space for pallets.
- Can it be delivered chilled?
This is only really helpful if the goods going in the trailer will already be chilled. If they are, then yes we can deliver it pre chilled.
- How long does it take for the trailer to come down to fridge temperature?
It takes Two Hours for an empty trailer to come down to +2c during the summer months, this is significantly reduced during colder months. A Trailer full of boxed bottles however, takes significantly longer and a minimum of 24 hours should be allowed. Removing bottles from boxes and spreading it out on the racking does help to reduce the time it takes.
- What sort of power supply is required?
Just a normal 13amp household type plug socket.
- How much power does it draw?
At peak chilling when it is working hardest, it will draw 2.5-3.0KW. A minimum of 5KVA generator to ensure sufficient power.
- Can you supply a generator to run it from if there is no power at the venue?
Yes we can supply a generator to supply power to the trailers. For more information please contact us.

- Can I collect and tow the Trailer myself?
