The CRS Group has been promoting Reducing, Reusing, and Recycling practices for over 20 years with its refurbished container range. But what makes these refurbished containers so special?
What are the benefits of refurbished cold storage?
Firstly, they are sustainable! Repurposed refrigerated containers reduce waste and help the conservation of natural resources. Our upcycled containers are carefully selected by our procurement team to make sure they have had the least amount of lifts and the lowest running hours possible. Containers that are used by shipping lines that specialise in deep sea long voyages are usually in the best external condition due to the minimal amount of lifting. Refrigeration units that are used in colder countries can spend a lot of their early years in heating mode meaning the running hours on the compressors on these units are very low.
Secondly, they are durable and long-lasting! Shipping containers use stainless steel in their manufacture and are designed to withstand harsh marine weather conditions as well as rough transport handling. When these marine grade units are taken away from the marine environment and used as static Coldstores they have a long life.
Our refurbished containers have all the external corrosion removed and are fully repainted to significantly extend their lifespan. Our skilled team of engineers and manufacturers can modify a 40ft container into 4 x 10ft containers so that they are reborn for a second life for multiple users as 10ft Grade A static Coldstores.
Thirdly, refurbished units are more cost-effective! Refurbished units cost less than brand-new ones, making them a perfect choice for businesses that look into affordable and sustainable cold storage solutions.
Moreover, our refurbished range can be equipped with brand-new cooling units to ensure they are as energy efficient as possible! They also get upgraded with non-slip floors, butcher doors, LED lighting, person-trapped alarm systems, and energy-saving insulated door curtains!
