Refrigerated Containers for Sale

Refrigerated shipping containers are the ideal way to transport and store goods that require reliable temperature-controlled facilities. When shipping or storing meat, cheese, dairy or seafood, a refrigerated container, also known as a ‘reefer’, is an absolute must-have. Fruits, flowers and many vegetables also need a steady temperature to make sure they arrive at their destination in their best condition, though they may only require an insulated container – it really does depend on the product, how far you are shipping, and how long the journey takes.

Refrigerated and Non-Operational Refrigerated Containers

Refrigerated shipping containers are available in mechanically refrigerated or non-operational refrigerated (NOR) configurations. At BFS Containers our mechanically refrigerated containers  require a power source or generator on the container, truck or train being used to transport the container. Non-operation refrigerated containers are decommissioned refrigerated containers and usually have had their motors removed and sold as insulated containers. These units are good for keeping the contents of your container at a steady ambient temperature.

Portable Refrigeration Solutions

A refrigerated shipping container is not limited to just shipping goods either. Mechanically refrigerated shipping containers can also be used as a mobile cool-room on worksites, mine sites, construction sites, film sites, festival sites, catering sites and large functions – anywhere a portable solution to refrigeration is required.

Refrigerated Shipping Container Sizes

Refrigerated shipping containers are available in 20 foot and 40-foot sizes and have the same outside dimensions as general-purpose containers, however the space inside is smaller because of the refrigeration unit and ventilation requirements.

At BFS Containers, we offer refrigerated containers for sale or hire in 3 phase 20 foot and 40 foot sizes fitted with a variable temperature control that keeps your goods between +25° C and -25° C. We also have single phase refrigerated containers available as well.
