Chiller & Freezer Trailer Hire

Our fleet of refrigerated trailers are available for both short term refrigerated trailer rental and longer term contract hire.

Our fleet of mobile fridge trailer units provides the ideal solution to ad-hoc or ongoing requirements for additional temperature controlled storage. These units, which can also be powered by a generator, are perfect for weddings, festivals, county shows and all outdoor catering events.

The IceBox Rapid Response Programme is the perfect solution for those unforeseen commercial kitchen breakdowns providing peace of mind that help is on its way.

Refrigerated trailer rental services cover a wide range of business sectors across the UK. As specialists in the provision of short term refrigerated trailer hire, IceBox provides a comprehensive range of quality chiller and freezer trailers for rental periods of a day, a weekend, a few weeks or several months.

The temperature controlled trailer fleet ranges from 8ft (2.4m) chiller trailers to 12ft (3.6m) freezer trailers. All trailers are extremely well maintained and are cleaned to the highest hygienic standards prior to each and every rental. In order to ensure the highest levels of operational efficiency and reliability we rotate our rental fleet regularly and therefore operate one of the youngest, freshest and most reliable refrigerated trailer hire fleets in the UK.


In addition to short term refrigerated trailer rental, we are also able to offer longer term refrigerated trailer contract hire options for those who may need to hire for longer periods but who cannot warrant the outright purchase of a trailer or who do not wish to be responsible for resale / disposal costs and other overheads brought about by ownership. Often long term hire can be the perfect alternative to outright purchase.

We specialise in providing long-term refrigerated trailer rental solutions to consumers and to businesses of all types and sizes from periods of 1 to 24 months. We will deliver to your location and collect again at the end of the contract period.

To make a booking enquiry, simply advise us of the type of trailer required, the period for which you are willing to commit and we will provide a quotation accordingly. Should you require to keep the trailer beyond the initial contract period, simply let us know and, subject to availability, we’ll extend the rental period and pro-rata the rate initially applied.

Refrigerated Trailer Emergency & Scheduled Maintenance

Our refrigerated trailer hire service doesn’t only apply to events and parties. As specialists in the arena, our Rapid Response programme is the perfect choice when seeking a solution to commercial kitchen emergencies and/or planned maintenance.

We partner with a large number of hotels, restaurants, fast food outlets, care homes, theme parks, football clubs and many other corporate clients who operate commercial kitchens to provide both emergency response services and also scheduled maintenance support services. In the unfortunate event of fridge or freezer failure, our commercial IceBox refrigerated trailers provide the perfect emergency solution – often we are able to respond and be onsite within a matter of a few hours.

Similarly, should your own commercial kitchen facilities be undergoing routine scheduled maintenance, our fridge trailer rental services will provide the perfect support during the period of maintenance downtime.
