Fridgexpress Van Case Study
Nature of business:
Experts in refrigerated vehicle rental.
Fridgexpress offers simple and flexible refrigerated vehicle hire, sales and servicing. The company provides a fuss-free personalised service from a small, friendly team. Fridgexpress likes to look towards the more obscure and unusual rental opportunities that numerous organisations would step away from.
Problems faced by the client:
The experience of David Richards, its founder and CEO, has helped tremendously in getting the small detail right which has then helped the end user specify the correct equipment and obviously thereafter help with payloads, temperature control, door operation and even driving styles on fuel consumption.
To come up with a solution which would be suitable for a customer on multi-drop ice cream – something which is always a tricky one to deal with in inner-city London, with little time between drops and door openings.
Fridgexpress came up with a solution with one of Coolertech’s thermally efficient, low temperature panel van conversions. The Mercedes Sprinter van features, amongst other equipment, a neat plug door access point to the side and an internal bulkhead to shut the load space down as the van is unloaded.
Another strange but again challenging question is height restriction these days which again Fridgexpress helped out with the provision of a Mercedes Vito van product and under-bonnet refrigeration system which met the customer’s 1900mm height restriction.
