Available Refrigerated Box Truck Types

Here are some possible variations of Refrigerated Box Truck rentals in Chicago

Multiple Temperature Zone

Most refrigerated box trucks have multiple temperature zones. This means that the temperature in the cargo compartment is not uniform. Therefore, if you want to rent a refrigerated box truck, you should consider the needs of the items you want to transport before deciding on the type you want.

Front Fixed

The alternative option for the multiple temperature zone trucks is the front fixed ones. This type of truck has a similar temperature throughout the whole cargo compartment. It is preferred by those who want to transport a single type of perishable item. With the front fixed refrigerated box trucks, you can regulate the temperature of the goods during transportation uniformly.

Metallic Floor

The type of material used in making the floor of a refrigerated box truck is also an important factor you should consider when choosing a truck to rent. Metallic floors generally have more endurance and help maintain the cargo's temperature. The alternative option to trucks with metallic floors is those with wooden floors.
