Refrigerated Container For Hire
SEA Containers supply a wide range of new and refurbished refrigerated storage containers for hire in New Zealand. The operating range of refrigerated shipping containers makes these high-capacity units suitable for storing and transporting temperature-controlled products such as frozen food, meat, beverages, plants, fruit and vegetables that must remain chilled before sale.
Types of refrigerated containers
Our reefer containers offer effective refrigeration solutions even in the highest ambient temperatures. Choose from new, used and non-operating storage containers.
Refrigerated shipping containers offer more than just a frozen storage solution. Reefer containers are mainly used for transportation; however, new containers are increasing in popularity at festivals, corporate outings, and functions. Their excellent temperature control enables food and beverages to be stored safely for prolonged periods.
Second-hand reefer containers are available in 20ft and 40ft sizes. Our used refrigerated shipping containers are an affordable and practical way to store or transport perishable goods requiring precise temperature control.
For customers who don’t need a chilled unit but still need to store products at consistent temperatures, a non-operating unit may be a better option. Non-operating refrigerated containers are equipped with heavy-duty insulation that retains hot or cold air temperature while reducing condensation.
Refrigerated shipping containers are available in a single-phase (15 amp) or 3-phase (32 amp) power supply, depending on your preference. The box interior is manufactured from Corten steel, stainless steel and aluminium, with sandwich packed foam.
In addition, our standard height containers are well-maintained, weather-tight and vermin-proof. All refrigerated containers also feature an easy-open access door on one end and complete inner and outer door seals to ensure no cold air escapes.
20ft reefers are the industry standard shipping container size for transportation. Our 20ft models are generally available in either single-phase or 3-phase units. This reefer container size features a capacity of 33.1m³ internally.
The 40ft models are most commonly used in international shipping. These containers are capable of storing up to 18 large pallets, offering a capacity of 67.7m³ of internal volume and supporting a maximum load of 30 tonnes. 40ft refrigerated storage containers are available in 3-phase only.
