A refrigerated van is a vehicle that offers temperature and humidity control in the cargo bay. A commercial-grade refrigerator unit is combined with insulation technology to offer air conditioning, heating or dehumidifying.
There are often three options when it comes to choosing a refrigerated van. You can either convert an existing van into a refrigerated van by improving the insulation and then adding a refrigeration unit. You can also choose between a range of used and new vehicles. There are petrol, diesel, hybrid and electric vehicles available.
A wide range of businesses can benefit from a refrigerated van. This includes any business responsible for transporting perishables, including food, flowers or medical supplies.
It’s important not to overload your van as this can reduce airflow and make it difficult for the refrigeration unit to work effectively. We recommend choosing a van with at least 10 cubic feet of storage space. Shop around and look for a van that will serve your business for years to come so you can set your sights on growth and expansion.
This will depend on a number of factors, including the size of your van, the standard of insulation, what you are storing in the van and how tightly packed it is. In general, you can expect it to take around 20 minutes for a van to cool down to 5 degrees Celsius.
This all depends on the items you are transporting. For meat, fish, dairy and other perishable food products, the industry standard is around 5 degrees Celsius. For pharmaceutical products, the temperature can vary from up to 15 degrees Celsius to below freezing. It all depends on the products you are transporting. Choosing a van with variable cargo hold will enable you to carry a wider range of perishables at once.
For the largest storage area, we recommend an extra long model that will have a full-length top box as standard. This cargo space can be split into zones for more flexibility, or you could add racking and shelves to make the most of the height and ensure your perishables are stored securely.
A refrigerated van is typically smaller than a truck and will usually have a single axle. This type of vehicle is perfect for businesses operating in cities, as it will be easier to get around. A truck is a much larger vehicle with multiple axles. This type of vehicle is best suited for long-distance travel.
If you transport perishable goods and you have previously been limited in your business by a lack of suitable vehicles, then you can benefit from a refrigerated van. Some of the businesses that can benefit from this type of vehicle include food suppliers, farmers, caterers, pharmaceutical companies, florists and many more. If you’re not sure if a refrigerated van is right for your company, we’d be happy to help you explore your options.
This all depends on your budget and your business goals. An electric vehicle can save you money in the long term as it will allow you to avoid the ULEZ charges while also helping to cut operational costs. If you are on a tight budget, a petrol-powered vehicle might be better suited.
If you’re curious about the operational history of your chosen model, we recommend visiting the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) website to find out more about any potential issues you might face. This can help you to decide if you are choosing a reliable vehicle.
It is certainly possible to find pre-owned refrigerated vans on the market. This can help to save money and avoid the need for a more significant upfront investment. However, with a new vehicle, you will enjoy improved performance and efficiency. When buying a used vehicle, make sure you check out the history of the van to check for any more extensive repairs.
You will need a valid driver’s licence in order to operate your refrigerated van. If you only have an automatic licence, you will need an automatic van. Without a full manual licence, you will be restricted to automatic vehicles. You will also need insurance and road tax before you can take your vehicle on the road. Since it is a commercial vehicle, you will need commercial van insurance.
The biggest benefit of choosing a refrigerated van over a conventional van is the flexibility to transport perishable goods. These are not only great for keeping things cool, they can also prevent items in the van from getting too hot, too cold or even too humid. This will ensure your items arrive at their destination in peak condition.
The main difference is the temperature inside the cargo hold and the type of items typically transported. A freezer van is more likely to be used for frozen goods, like frozen fish or ice cream. Catering companies can benefit from different temperature controlled compartments, allowing them to store items at different temperatures.
We’ll help you find the right fridge or freezer van for your requirements.
