Top 10 Uses for Portable Fridges
From Food Storage to Securing Sensitive Equipment

Business is far easier when you have the right equipment, and sometimes the most significant upgrades can be made using
relatively simple technology. Compact and portable fridges are a perfect example of an asset that can create benefits far
beyond any initial cost, while at the same time having the twin advantages of availability and practicality. Their robust
construction and reliable cooling mechanism allow them to be used in many different ways.

WE FREQUENTLY WORK IN THE
FOLLOWING INDUSTRIES:

Sporting Events
Spacewise has supplied units to many major sporting events, including the Wimbledon Tennis Championship.
Outdoor Bars and Festivals
Spacewise supply refrigerated and dry storage containers for music events and festivals throughout the UK.
Cider and Beer Companies
Spacewise regularly supplies ambient and chilled storage containers to the many events hosted by CAMRA and similar organisations.

1. Meat and fish storage

The food industry would be severely hampered without access to refrigerated storage. Use of portable reefers empowers companies in this line of business to be flexible and rent storage when its needed, rather than investing heavily in other traditional storage methods.


2. Preservation of fresh fruits and vegetables

Seasonal produce is temperature sensitive, so leaving fruits and vegetables in regular dry storage isn’t always a viable option. Due to their mobility, refrigerated fridges can be utilised to store seasonal stock for peak seasons and beyond.


3. Secure storage for high-value items

Since 40ft portable containers can be locked and monitored remotely via a mobile phone or PC, they are frequently used to store large amounts of valuable temperature-sensitive stock.


4. Temporary storage boost

Available in three different sizes, portable fridges can be readily added whenever there is a need to increase the volume of refrigerated space on hand. This happens often in some industries, sometimes without warning, so the ability to simply rent a few extra units is an important, cost-effective problem-solving tool.


5. Delicate Equipment

Some equipment is vulnerable to the heat, and may be damaged if it is stored without proper precautions. Some devices that require specific atmospheric conditions can be safely placed in refrigerated storage.


6. Drink coolers

Keeping drinks properly chilled is a constant challenge for open-air restaurants, beach bars, music festivals, and other venues that serve refreshments. Portable fridges can be a smart answer to this issue and allow for easy stock rotation.


7. Event catering

The quality of food served at corporate events or promo parties tells a story about the hosts, so it’s paramount to ensure its freshness. Temperature-controlled fridges excel in this role and can be used at a variety of events. They allow for much improved catering service and shorten the time needed to serve food to guests, while at the same time they don't produce much noise.


8. Storing Flowers

Mobile fridges can greatly improve the capacity of florists to preserve flowers in small or larger quantities. It allows products to be kept fresher for longer and our smallest unit is a cost effective solution that can be kept on a standard size car parking space.


9. Keeping valuable medicaments safe

Pharmaceutical products often include complex chemicals that might decay if they are exposed to high temperatures during transportation or storage. Container-based storage helps address this issue while also significantly impacting the physical security and potentially preventing theft of valuable cargo.


10. On-location warehousing

Even companies with extensive storage capacities can benefit from portable fridges capable of maintaining low temperatures. As such, adding a few containers to a field location can be a smart solution for storage challenges and temporary increases in business volume. Our units are light, self-supporting, and portable, so they can be moved if required.

Spacewise has more than 30 years of experience in supplying containers to different industries across the UK. Our portable fridges can be delivered almost anywhere in the United Kingdom.

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.

Entourage Live

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.
