Hey! My name is Jay and I live in Brisbane, Australia and I have decided to start this blog so I can raise awareness of the importance of industry and manufacturing. I am not a professional who works in this sector but my dad was the manager of a manufacturing plant for many years. When I was growing up, I would often visit him and see the men working on the machines below. It was a wonderful sight. Even though I didn't enter into the same profession as my dad, I have developed a keen interested in the sector. I hope you enjoy my blog.

Hiring a Refrigerated Unit for a Party: A Guide

If you are planning a party, you have no doubt spent time drawing up a guest list, looking for DJ and planning the food menu. However, one thing you may not have considered is the amount of refrigeration space available to you. This is something many people don't think about until their guests start to complain about warm beer and a lack of fresh food. You can avoid these issues by hiring a refrigerated trailer. Below is a guide to the things you need to consider when hiring a refrigerated trailer.

The capacity

The cost of a refrigerated trailer will depend on its size. It can be difficult to judge what size of trailer you will require, so it is always best to seek the guidance of a member of staff at the party refrigeration rental company. If you explain the type and quality of food or drink you intend to store in the unit, they will be able to suggest the best size of trailer for your needs.

The security

Security is important. Because your trailer will be located outside, you will want to stop intruders from stealing the food and drink which are contained inside. Before you hire a trailer, you should ask to see the security features it contains. While older trailers may be fitted with simple Yale locks, more advanced trailers are often fitted with deadbolts, which add an extra level of security. Ultramodern trailers are fitted with high-secure keypad locks. Security is also important as it will prevent guests from making an unauthorised entry into the refrigerated unit when they are under the influence of alcohol. Unfortunately, there have been cases in which drunk people have become trapped in refrigerators, which have resulted in their death from exposure to the cold. To prevent this risk from occurring, you should always ensure that your trailer is locked when it is not in use

The power supply

Refrigerated trailers require a power supply. Before you sign on the dotted line to hire your mobile fridge unit, you should inquire about how it is powered. Traditionally, refrigerated trailers are powered using diesel generators. However, these can be extremely noisy. Some modern refrigerated units are now powered directly from your home power supply via a cable.

If you would like further guidance on hiring a refrigerated trailer, you should contact a company which supplies this equipment. A member of staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
