Meet Your Emergency, Temporary or Permanent Cold Storage Needs with Refrigeration Coolers

August 5, 2010

refrigerated trailerRefrigeration coolers are a must-have item for many types of businesses, special events venues, emergency response organizations, vendors and service providers. From florists specializing in elegant wedding décor for local brides, to mobile barbecue restaurants that set up at special events across the country, temperature controlled storage that is portable and convenient is absolutely essential.

Businesses that consistently need refrigerated storage for flowers, food, beverages, pharmaceuticals or other climate-sensitive products will experience the greatest benefits and convenience from purchasing a cooler trailer custom built to fit their needs, while vendors, venues or smaller businesses that only need temperature controlled trailers on occasion may be better served by renting a trailer on an as-needed basis. Of course, once these folks have rented refrigeration coolers one or more times, they often make plans to purchase a cooler trailer in order to enjoy the convenience of always having handy, portable, temperature controlled storage readily available.

Whether in need of a short-term refrigerated trailer rental anywhere in North America or in search of a customized freezer trailer to purchase, business owners, event coordinators, restaurateurs, first response groups and special events venue managers turn to Cooler Trailers for all of their portable cold storage needs. One of the main reasons for this is that we provide high quality, custom-built cold storage trailers crafted to meet each customer’s needs and specifications. Another feature that sets our cooler trailers apart from our competitors is the 110 volt wiring, which allows our portable units to be powered by a standard house current, rather than requiring special electrical wiring or a generator.

The refrigeration coolers built by Cooler Trailers use the latest nanotechnology and have 3- 4 inch insulation throughout to ensure superior efficiency. They are also ultra-quiet when running and include top quality electrical equipment. Our popular 8-foot and 12-foot trailers also feature ground-level entries, 2-inch and 2 5/16-inch hitch connections and electrical wiring that is ready for both 110 and 220 volt hook-ups. Of course, our trailers are also available in custom sizes and with a variety of optional extras and equipment, allowing you to customize your cold storage trailer to fit your specific requirements.

Whether your portable cooler trailer needs include permanent cold storage, temperature controlled transportation for deliveries, special events refrigeration or portable freezers for emergency food storage, Cooler Trailers is sure to have just the right trailer to meet your needs. And, if you have unique needs that a standard, pre-built trailer may not meet, contact us about custom building a trailer just for you.

Cooler Trailers Offers Convenient, Affordable Options for Floral Coolers

Floral coolers are a key component 

in the décor of any event.

The florists who supply them are relied upon to deliver beautiful, fresh arrangements that will play an important role in setting the overall tone for the occasion. Whether the flowers are for stage decorations at a college graduation, elegant wedding bouquets and centerpieces, or memorial arrangements for a funeral or celebration of life event, it is imperative that the floral arrangements arrive looking just as lovely as they did when they were first created. Of course, this requires proper storage that is temperature controlled, as well as a means of transportation that allows for convenient delivery.

Having on-site cold storage at your place of business is a requirement for all florists; however, the minimal storage space provided by floral display coolers and backroom floral coolers is rarely enough during wedding season, in the time leading up to major floral holidays or when you are providing the flowers for a special event. Fortunately, it is easy to expand your temperature controlled floral storage to accommodate arrangements during particularly busy times or when you are preparing for a large event. And, with the flexibility of the options available, it is also possible to accommodate your needs for on-site floral storage at your place of business, portable cold storage for use at venues and temperature controlled delivery of floral arrangements.

Purchasing refrigerated trailers for use as floral coolers is an ideal option for florists in need of cold storage and transportation for their arrangements.

Cooler Trailers offers temperature controlled trailers that can be custom built to match your needs and provide a convenient, portable refrigerated storage option that can improve your ability to take on larger orders and increase your profits. These trailers can open up expanded opportunities for refrigerated floral deliveries, can be used on-site at venues and will provide the additional refrigerated flower storage you need to effectively manage your current orders and grow your business.

Aside from custom building refrigerated trailers for a wide variety of clients, Cooler Trailers also provides trailer rentals by the day, week or month, which is a great option for those who might not be quite ready to take the step of purchasing a trailer, but who need additional floral coolers during particularly busy times or for special events.

If you would like to find out more about renting or purchasing a refrigerated trailer to meet your cold floral storage requirements, contact Cooler Trailers today and we will be happy to discuss the options that will best suit your floral coolers needs.

An Emergency Cold Storage Plan is Vital to Hurricane Preparedness

June 20, 2010

Hurricane season is upon us and there is no time like the present to make sure we are well-prepared for what might come our way this year. Now is the time to prepare for what is expected to be an active hurricane season. While families are making sure they have crank radios, candles, non-perishable foods and bottled water, first responders, municipalities and emergency response organizations are making preparations for stepping in and providing assistance to large numbers of people quickly and efficiently.

After a natural disaster occurs, all energy must be focused on ensuring that men, women, children and pets are safe and have at least the basic necessities made available to them. In order to effectively step in and assist those in need after a hurricane or other natural disaster, it is imperative that we plan ahead and anticipate every need we can possibly think of. The availability of food, water and medicine is critical to the recovery of the community after a hurricane, and in order to transport and store these items efficiently, portable, temperature-controlled trailers are a necessity.

Preparing for a hurricane or other emergency situation must include an emergency cold storage plan. This is particularly true for hospitals, city and county emergency response groups, prisons, the Red Cross, FEMA and any other group that either provides assistance in emergency situations or is responsible for the care and safety of a large group of people. Part of an emergency cold storage plan is arranging for access to refrigerated trailers that can be used to transport or store food, water, medicines and other necessities for affected communities. This could mean purchasing one or more refrigerated trailers that are custom-built to meet your needs, or working with a company like Cooler Trailers to arrange for quick cold storage trailer rentals when a hurricane or other emergency occurs.

Keep in mind that it is not enough to simply make a note that you will need freezer trailers or refrigerated trailers if disaster strikes; you also must ensure that the trailers will provide the function you require. For example, many refrigerated trailers require a dedicated generator or special electrical wiring. Just imagine the time, product and money that would be wasted if you purchase or rent a freezer trailer and take it on location, only to find out that you do not have the proper energy source to run it. The refrigerated trailers made by Cooler Trailers run on 110 volt, which is regular house current or a 5000 watt generator making them far more versatile and a more reliable option that will work effectively in more situations.

Cooler Trailers is proud to have worked with FEMA and a number of municipalities to ensure proper hurricane preparedness and cold storage for emergency situations. While we hope that the 2010 hurricane season will not be as active as anticipated, we strongly urge you to include an emergency cold storage plan in your hurricane preparedness planning.

refrigerated trailerCooler Trailers Inc. Reveal Their Latest Innovation: Portable Affordable Refrigerated Trailers

Cooler Trailers, Inc, a nationally recognized leader in the refrigerated trailer business, announces their latest innovation: portable 8 to 12 foot cooler trailers, which provide an affordable alternative to the industry standard size 48 foot refrigerated trailers and refrigerated trucks

Daytona Beach FL.  March 16, 2010 — Cooler Trailers, Inc., the recognized leader in high quality cooler trailers, is proud to announce their latest innovation, aimed at businesses looking for an affordable alternative to the large, expensive cooler trailers offered by most trailer rental companies.

Their portable 8 foot and 12 foot cooler trailers, which can be viewed by visiting, are specifically designed to meet the needs of smaller businesses that need a refrigerated truck or refrigerated trailers (also known as a reefer trailer.)

The portable trailers are especially timely with the cost of diesel fuel running high and businesses struggling to trim their bottom lines in today’s stressed economy.

“Not everyone needs or has the space to rent a 48 tractor trailer or straight truck and pay a small fortune in diesel fuel to keep it running,”
according to Tom McBride, owner of Cooler Trailers, Inc.

“That’s why we developed our Cooler Trailers. They’re small portable trailers that easily pull up to your business or home and plug into your 110 volt power. The 8’ and 12’ trailers are easy to fit almost anywhere and they’re whisper quiet.”

The trailers are the result of years of working with local businesses in their Daytona Beach area and listening closely to the needs of the business owners.

“We started out renting to our local market and got a lot of great feedback on how to build a portable refrigerated trailer that is helpful and unique to the refrigeration truck and trailer industry,” McBride explained. “Everyone is familiar with the big truck operators in this space but nobody was taking care of the needs of the smaller businesses.”

The trailers are used by customers in the restaurant industry, catering industry, special events and festivals industry, floral and wedding industry, and many more.

“Another breakthrough is the use of standard refrigeration in our units. We modify standard refrigeration for transportation use and once this is done, these units are more cost effective to repair and maintain than other systems,” according to McBride. “We can cool down well below freezing (-5 degrees) on a 110 volt system that requires 15 amps. Other companies require 25 amps or more and require a generator to run all the time.

Cooler Trailers Inc’s headquarters are in Daytona Beach, but they offer freezer trailers for sale or rent nationwide. Among their distinguished clientele are Coca-Cola, Anheiser-Busch, Sonic, Applebee’s, Longhorn Steakhouse, Stonewood Grill, Red Lobster, Wendy’s Hamburgers, McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, Papa John’s, Krystal’s, Chili’s, Olive Garden, Friendly’s, Piccadilly, Ocean Spray and many more.

Cooler Trailers and Portable Freezer Units Are Perfect For Festivals or Special Events

Cooler trailers and portable freezer rentals are the affordable way to keep bulk items chilly at all types of festivals, fairs, and special events. Our handy 8-foot or 12-foot refrigeration or freezer trailers are the perfect size for banquets or weddings, corporation trade shows, and all types of crowd-pleasing needs.

Portable cooler trailers are often rented to hold:

  • Beverages: At community gatherings, company picnics, or at consumer entertainments or sales, there is often a need to keep cases of bottled water, soda, or beer cold and ready for distribution. Cooler trailers and portable freezer rentals run on 110v or generator to efficiently chill all types of bottles, cans, or containers without the cost or smell of diesel fuel involved.
  • Meats or Seafood: Food vendors at festivals and special events need a safe way to keep their frozen foods solid throughout the duration of the affair. Handy mobile refrigeration units monitor temperatures in a manner that is approved by health officials. Restaurants often use these same units on-site whenever an extra walk-in freezer or food storage refrigerator is needed.
  • Fruits or Vegetables: At community events today, fruits and vegetables are in high demand. All over America, many people are participating in healthy lifestyle routines. What this means for vendors is that cold produce often sells as well or better than the traditional meat-filled meals or sugary snacks. An affordable cooler trailer rental can help you to really cash-in on today’s popular food trends at all public gatherings.
  • Flowers or Candles: Portable refrigeration trailers can keep fresh flowers perky and designer candles intact under all types of summertime show conditions. Craft sales, Christmas shows, and antique auctions can all happen under the sun during the tourist months of June, July, and August. Refrigeration units can help to protect your delicate or perishable booth-sale inventory before sales, during events, and between show dates on the calendar.

Another popular use for cooler trailers and portable freezer rentals is currently revolving around trade shows and industry-specific consumer events. At these shows, vendors are in heavy competition to gain the attention of visiting clients or consumers. There is no better way to catch the public’s attention than through free food or drinks. All sizes of businesses are taking advantage of affordable refrigeration unit rentals for trade shows.

Whenever cold storage is needed for a tournament, county fair, or public sports event, a quiet running portable cooler trailer is perfect for your needs. These refrigerator/freezer trailers have common 2” or 2 5/16” trailer hitches and they run quietly from any normal electrical outlet. Their size makes them easy to park, and inexpensive to operate at all types of community functions, festivals, and special events.

Refrigerated Truck Alternative

April 14, 2010

Cooler Trailers offers a refrigerated truck alternative with our portable refrigerated trailers. Ideal for practically any industry that makes use of a cooling system, these portable refrigerated trailers have been used by supermarkets, caterers, pharmaceutical manufacturers, fast food chains and a large number of other small and large businesses, as well as a variety of individuals for personal home use.

Save on Space

Unlike large, loud and smelly diesel truck refrigeration units, this innovative refrigerated truck alternative is available in a variety of units and a number of sizes to fit into small spaces not suitable for industry sized trucks. Our portable refrigerated trailers are available in 8 to 16 foot units perfect for small businesses without a lot of room for a large standard size 48 foot truck. These units can fit practically anywhere. These portable refrigerated trailers are perfect on gravel, pavement and even grass. They will fit much more easily into a tight space than a large industry sized refrigerated truck will, and there is no danger in placing it on a slope. While large industry sized trucks should not be parked on a slope because of the risk of injury, portable refrigerated trailers can easily rest on practically any surface. They can be positioned inside or outside.

Save on Cost

In comparison with big industrial trucks, Cooler Trailers’ portable refrigerated trailer units are extremely cost effective in today’s sliding economy. Many smaller businesses find they don’t really need the space an industry sized 48 foot refrigerated truck provides. However, even if you don’t use that space, you are still paying for it. With the rising cost of diesel fuel, why not opt for a portable refrigerated truck that doesn’t require diesel fuel to begin with? Simply pull the unit up to your business or home and plug it in to a 110 volt power supply. With this refrigerated truck alternative, you will save a multitude of money on diesel fuel, delivery and running costs.

Eliminate Odor

Gone are the days of truck trailers that reek of smelly fuel. Refrigerated trucks require diesel fuel for the cooling unit to keep running properly. Cooler Trailers’ convenient refrigerated truck alternative runs on a 110 volt system, requiring as little as 15 amps of power. In addition, our portable refrigerated trailers are available with a generator backup and thermostatically controlled environment.

Enjoy Convenience
