Cold storage can be used to hold a range of valuable goods; and our container-based solutions are gaining popularity
due to low prices and excellent performance. To help decide the best cold storage solution for your company,
we advise you to consider the following:
What types of goods need to be stored?
Many different types of raw materials, chemical compounds, medical samples, commercial merchandise, and high-tech equipment have to be kept in temperature-controlled storage. With this in mind, the first step towards recognising the best solution is to define what the storage will be used for. It is paramount that the chosen storage format is well-suited to support temperatures needed to keep the particular type of goods in the desired controlled environment.
What is the expected peak volume of goods?
This factor is extremely important for picking the right storage capacity; and in the case of container-based solutions, you need to determine the right size and number of refrigerated units needed.
Is mobility important?
In situations where cold storage is needed for transportation purposes or where storage facilities are needed at multiple locations, containers have a marked advantage over any other storage technology. They are very lightweight and can be moved around with the right vehicle, so its possible to derive more value out of a single container than it could be possible with a comparable amount of stationary refrigerated space.
How soon can the solution be operational?
Urgency is another factor that can dramatically change your outlook since readily available solutions can help solve potential challenges and capitalise on sudden opportunities. As refrigerated containers are continually available from Spacewise and can be delivered across in the UK in a very short time, they can be used to mitigate the impact of unexpected events.
Thank you very much for the service provided by Spacewise. BULKPOWDERS rented 3 x 40ft Refrigerators for the summer season. An excellent service from our initial phone call through to the end of the agreement. Great communications, ease of contract, quick delivery of selected refrigerators, with a faultless rental agreement period. Thank you for the service.
Coca-Cola Enterprises have developed a strong relationship with Spacewise during the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games. The Spacewise team have worked effectively with CCE providing support to deliver on time solutions for this high profile logistical operation, contributing to a successful Games time operation for our business.
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.
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.
