Supermarkets and food retailers wage a constant battle to increase their freezer storage space while staying in
compliance with regulations and budget restraints. Many types of food must be refrigerated at all times, and to
make things more complicated, the temperature required can vary. Refrigerated containers can help businesses to
remain competitive and retain a broad product offering.
Maximise the effective floor space
Smart positioning of several freezer units can provide a fast and convenient storage solution without using too much space. Some units may be located in areas where large crowds are present, while others may be placed into a warehouse or positioned alongside buildings. The idea is to make the most out of your floor plan. Sometimes it makes sense to use multiple container sizes to utilise every square inch available.
Using separate freezer containers
Some products are sensitive to cross-contamination, which is why it can be useful to store them separately. This can present a problem in traditional facilities, but containers offer a very practical solution. You can simply use dedicated containers for certain produce, completely eliminating the danger of accidental contamination and the resulting spoilage.
Be prepared for the holiday season
Many supermarkets in the United Kingdom experience a surge of demand in advance of the Christmas season, so their needs for refrigerated space tend to spike during this period. Short term rental of high-quality freezer containers is a smart way to weather the storm and keep the level of service at a standard level without overspending. Since a busy season also means increased revenues, rented containers could turn out to be a very profitable asset.

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.
