Reefers For Sale Hard To Find As Christmas Approaches

Friday, 5th November 2010
The U.K domestic refrigerated container market is very much driven by supermarket demand over the festive period. The stores have only so much space in their coldstores and the influx of seasonal produce brought in for sale, over Christmas and New Year, means they often turn to containers to take care of their excess chilled and frozen storage requirements. This increased demand from the stores means that between September and January many freezer containers are out on-hire being used for temporary cold storage. Many boxes coming up for sale are often purchased and repaired with the machinery subjected to a full PTI or in some cases modification to meet stores requirements. 40ft high cube reefers were generally more suited to the export market as the extra cube was not something supermarkets generally specified. However in recent years with fewer and fewer standard height 40ft containers being built there are more of this type entering the U.K domestic market. Innovation by the worlds leading reefer machinery manufacturers such as Thermo King and Carrier has led to quieter, more energy efficient equipment, all music to the supermarkets ears. Although only very recently introduced to many fleets as these machines filter through into the domestic market this could spell the end for bespoke machinery or conversions.
