Available Refrigerated Straight Truck Types

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

Metallic Floor

Most refrigerated straight trucks are made with metallic floors, a durable option for such trucks. Refrigerated straight trucks with metallic floors are long-lasting and assure that your goods are safe during transport.

Wooden Floor

Wooden floors are the alternative to metallic floors. The major reason to prefer this variation is that it enables great airflow throughout the truck's cargo compartment. When renting a truck, some business owners or retailers look out for such detail as it means that their cargo can get good ventilation while the temperature is equally regulated.

Multiple Temperature Zone

A refrigerated straight truck having multiple temperature zones means that such a truck does not maintain a uniform temperature throughout the cargo area. Some parts of the cargo compartments are colder than others, allowing you to regulate how different items are preserved during transportation.

Frozen Food

Many people who rent refrigerated straight trucks use frozen food such as chicken, dairy products, and fruits. By maintaining the temperature of the goods throughout transportation, they can be assured of retaining the quality of their goods.
