Why Insulated or Refrigerated Containers are Unsuitable for Storage
Used or second hand insulated containers are often non-operational refrigerated/freezer units, and are usually unsuitable for storage.
Non operational reefers are often sold for the following reasons:
- Refrigeration failure and subsequent rotting of perishables can leave odours or fungus spores that can contaminate stored goods.
- Leaking and water retained inside wall cavities and insulation that can not be removed.
- Age leading to breakdown of insulation material.
Insulated containers should only be used for construction site sheds, or similar where they are opened each day and do not present a possible health hazard.
Use Standard Steel Containers for Storage
Standard steel shipping containers are a better choice for the storage of household goods & furniture, building supplies & commercial goods.
