While some trucking businesses rely on refrigerated trailers for daily use, others just need to use a reefer trailer rental occasionally. By renting a trailer instead of purchasing one, business owners can maximize the profits they make from the few jobs they take that require refrigerated trailers. Unless a business uses reefer trailers frequently, it doesn’t make sense for them to own one.
The video on this page showcases some of the best features of refrigerator trailers that business owners should pay attention to when choosing a trailer to rent. Modern reefer trailers are much more efficient than older trailers, so make sure the trailer you rent is as new as possible. Many of the newer models include solar panels on the trailer roof to help power the refrigeration trailer. This offsets the cost of the rental by reducing fuel usage during transport.
Newer reefer trailers are also aerodynamic to help drivers save fuel. They also have safety features to keep drivers safe on the road. Other safety features include automatic lights on the interior of the trailer that respond to motion. These lights ensure that workers can always see what they’re doing when loading and unloading goods.
