How should I prepare to receive my container?

Cinder blocks, wooden block, and railroad ties can help you avoid problems as well. Try to ensure a level area is available. FAQs about cold storage containers.

How much access do I need to make available?

You will need to ensure sufficient access for the delivery truck is available. There will also need to be enough space for you to gain access to your cargo via the swing doors when the unit has been grounded. The refrigeration unit will also require proper airflow on all sides.  You must ensure at lease 5 feet of space is available. You also need to make sure there is enough area to supply the unit with electricity.

How can I keep my units in good condition?

You can prolong the life of your container by ensuring you’re using the right electrical supply at all times. Check how the unit is operating on a regular basis and monitor temperature frequently. Try to keep the doors closed as much as you can.  Also allow unobstructed airflow when you are loading the container. Make sure products are not stacked near to the doors or ceiling. If you are entering the unit for a lengthy period of time, switch the unit off and turn it back on when you leave.

You also need to regularly inspect the unit to identify any oil-stained areas. The presence of oil can be a symptom of a refrigerant leak. The condenser coil needs to be kept clean, particularly during the warmer months of the year.
