Available Refrigerated Box Truck Types

Here are some possible variations of Refrigerated Box Truck rentals in San Diego

Multiple Temperature Zone

Just like the name suggests, these are reefer box trucks that are built with different temperature zones. Instead of an even temperature in the cargo area, the levels differ in different sectors. Oftentimes, the temperature zones are usually a maximum of three and this means that you can haul goods with different temperature requirements all at the same time. For instance, the front part of the cargo area could have the lowest temperature while the rear part has a slightly higher temperature.

Metallic Floor

These are refrigerated box trucks made of metallic floors in the cargo area. The surface is flat with no spaces in between meaning that no air goes in or out of the truck. While they are not recommended for goods that need air circulation, they are quite durable.

Wooden Floor

Some reefer box trucks are built with wooden floors in the cargo area. This is because some types of goods with temperature regulation requirements require air circulation. Wooden-floor reefer box trucks are built with spaces in between the cargo area to allow air penetration. If you need to haul temperature-sensitive goods that also require air circulation, this would be the best option.
