Hiring a Refrigerated Truck In Brisbane – What’s Involved

Hiring a refrigerated truck can solve all your transport needs, whether it’s for work, social activities, or leisure. 

Industries using refrigerated trucks include flower retail wholesale, marketing and promotion, catering and home delivery, food processing companies, grocery wholesale and retail, rotary and social clubs. 

Whatever you’re transporting, there are few things to consider to make sure it all runs smoothly. 

What size truck do you need?

Choosing a truck with a suitable size and capacity for your load is essential. It’s not practical to have a huge amount of space for a small load or to be squeezing your products into a tight space. 

Also, be careful not to exceed the maximum weight capacity for the truck. The truck’s Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) is the maximum weight that a truck can carry including its own weight. It is the responsibility of the driver to ensure that weight is not compromised.

Take a look at Brisk’s modern range of refrigerated trucks, vans and utes to find the right size for your needs. 

What temperature does your product require?

Make sure that all products in the same refrigerated transport vehicle or cold storage environment require the same temperature. All Brisk vehicles feature refrigeration units capable of up to minus 18 degrees to ambient and digital temperature control.

What licence do you need to drive it?

Hiring a truck without a truck driver’s licence can be tricky. Brisk’s smaller vehicles can be driven on a standard approved Australian Open “C” Class licence. No P Platers or drivers under 21 years. For their larger trucks, drivers must be over 25 years old and must have a Medium Rigid or Heavy Rigid licence. 

How long do you need it for?

Deciding how long you need to hire the truck for can save you money. There are both short term and long term rental options. For short term rentals, customers can rent for 1 day, 5 days, a week, or up to a month. Long term, customers can rent maintained and insured vehicles over 36,48 or 60 month contracts.
