Here we take a look at the most important areas to consider when purchasing a new fridge or freezer van:

What temperature do I need my refrigerated van to be?

This must be one of the most important fridge or freezer van questions, when you have decided or discovered the temperature that you are going to need, you can then look for a vehicle that will match this.

What am I using my refrigerated van for?

Again, another vital question, what do you need your refrigerated van or vehicle for? Are you using it to transport food produce? Or maybe it’s for important equipment for the pharmaceutical industry? Either way, your usage of the refrigerated van will affect the vehicle that you choose. We don’t convert any of our vehicles to suit particular service industries, but the type and temperature that they provide will be suited to different vehicles or vans.

How many stops, drops or deliveries will I make using my refrigerated vehicle?

This question is essential, the number of stops you carry out in the vehicle will affect the power of the refrigeration system. You may be planning on multiple stops, so this will require a powerful system, whereas limited drop-offs may reduce the fridge power only slightly. Another important area to consider is considering a van that has a backup system, just in case the power was to go off for whatever reason, a backup power source can take over and make sure that your products or goods are still chilled.

Do I need any extra specifications added to the fridge van?

There are a whole host of extra specifications and modifications that you can include in your fridge van conversion, from adding a slip-resistant floor or a wet load floor, these are great for vans that are going to get a lot of foot traffic. You can also add extra shelves and racks, great options for more storage space for your products and goods.
