How to Maintain a Long Term Cold Room Hire

Whether you need more storage, are often travelling to events, or don’t have the resources to build your own cold room, having a long term hire can be a great option.

Hiring a cold room for a long term can be a cost-effective solution for your business. With a long term hire, you can pay a fixed rate each month, making it easier for you to control your finances.

Long term hire gives you the refrigerated storage space you need at an affordable price. It’s flexible, mobile, accessible and immediate.

Thinking about hiring a mobile cold room for your business for a long term period? There’s a few things you can do to get the most out of your cold room and ensure you have a positive hire experience.

Take care of your cold room

Taking care of your cold room throughout your long term hire can help to prevent it breaking down and save you from that expense. Record the temperature each day and make note of any changes. This can give you an indication of how well the cold room is performing.

Also make sure to keep it clean. Wipe down its surfaces with warm, soapy water and a cloth. Don’t use bleach, steel wool, or chemicals which could not only damage the unit but also affect your goods. Once it’s clean, make sure all surfaces are dry to prevent ice building up and slip hazards.

Keep the area around your cold room tidy and free from any weeds or rubbish that could obstruct its airflow and reduce its efficiency.

Keep your cold room well-stocked

A fully-stocked cold room will work more efficiently than a partly stocked one. An overstocked one will have to work much harder and could break down more easily. Remember to keep an eye on stock levels throughout your long term hire so that your cold room can operate at its best.

For example, you could keep frequently used items close to the door so that you can find them easily and prevent too much cold air from escaping. Also ensure items don’t block any fans or impact the flow of cold air. Check perishable items daily to ensure they are still in good condition and to reduce the risk of contaminating your other items.
