Available Trailer Types

Here are some possible variations of trailer rentals in Ft. Lauderdale

  • Wood floor 
    They are fitted with wooden flooring. As much as it was common a long time ago, they are still widely used. The greatest advantage of using a wooden floor is that it aids the circulation of air. Produce is commonly transported using such a trailer.
  • Metal floor 
    As the direct opposite of wooden flooring. If your commodity in transit does not need the presence of air circulation then a metal flooring is the way to go. The good thing about metal floors is that it preserves the cold way better than a wood floor.
  • Front Fixed
    A front fixed reefer trailer has one cooling component that is diesel powered that can be easily adjusted to the most favorable temperature. This one unit is in charge of the temperature settings of the entire room. Such refrigerated trailers are meant for the transportation of commodities that share similar characteristics. It is not uncommon to see only one type of commodity being transported in it.
  • Multiple temperature zones
    Unlike the common reefers that have one refrigeration unit controlling the temperature for the whole trailer. A multiple temperature zone trailer comes fitted with a number of units. This allows transportation of different commodities at a go, that might require different set temperatures.

Trailer Uses

The trailer rented on COOP can be used for any of your business needs. Here are some examples of the types of uses for trailer rented on COOP.

  • Flower Transportation
    Flowers just like many other perishable goods tend to be affected negatively by too much heat. A refrigerated trailer helps in controlling the temperature at which flowers are transported in and by doing so, the flowers have a chance of surviving a long haul.
  • Transportation Of Produce
    Refrigerated trailers are majorly used to carry out this particular task. The perishability nature of produce makes it difficult to transport them in another way rather than through a refrigerated trailer. This way one has the confidence that the goods will arrive while still fresh.
  • Hauling Personal Care Products
    Personal care products such as cosmetics are very delicate goods that need to be transported under specific temperatures. To avoid altered chemical composition due to an unwanted increase or decrease of heat, a refrigerated trailer is perfect for this kind of transportation.
