Refrigerated Truck Rental isn’t Available Everywhere

One of the reasons that we’ve been among the top choices for commercial rental vehicles since 1936 is because we try hard to be responsive to market needs. We target market needs and meet them, which is why we make refrigerated truck rental available to our customers, something that isn’t found everywhere these days. It’s not just perishable food items that need cool transport. There are many things that need to be transported in a temperature controlled environment, especially in the heat of a southern California summer.

We have refrigerated box trucks in sizes between 16 and 24 feet available for rental. The box is well insulated and temperatures can be relied upon, even for freezing. Your frozen goods will stay that way until you get them to where they are going. The vehicle cab is comfortable, and has room for three people, making it easy to take along an unloading crew. We even make the ride pleasurable, with air conditioning to make sure that you, as well as your load, stays cool, and an AM/FM radio to help pass the driving time. The trucks also have power brakes and steering and feature automatic transmissions for easy driving.

Like all of our rentals, we make our well maintained and pleasurable to drive refrigerated box truck rentals available at a reasonable price. Our efficient staff is trained specifically to make the rental process fast and easy, without sacrificing any of the essential details or elements of quality that have helped to place us among the top choices of the region for commercial vehicle rental. When you arrange for your rental with us, you can expect that it will be on the the lot, clean and ready for you to drive away with at the appointed hour. We respect that you have a schedule to keep and that being on time is essential to your ongoing success.

Many people choose a rental to help them get through a period when their own vehicle is undergoing repair, helping to keep their business running smoothly and avoiding a loss of income. Others choose truck rental during busy periods that are a bit too much for their current fleet to handle, but not quite busy enough to financially justify the purchase of another vehicle that will be idle for extended periods. We offer dependable value for your truck rental dollar, and work hard to help you meet your transporting goals.

Sometimes a Box Truck Rental is a Better Choice

Buying or leasing a truck is not always the best solution to a transporting issue. Sometimes, after giving the matter some consideration and running the numbers, box truck rental is a better choice. Clearly, for a one time transport situation, renting is the way to go. However, sometimes the choice isn’t as clear cut. An opportunity or situation may arise in which multiple transports may be necessary, such as repeated deliveries to a particular location over a period of time that almost, but not quite justifies the expense of buying.

Some types of seasonal businesses face this choice of whether to buy, lease or rent a vehicle capable of handling the task. It’s important to remember, when weighing the decision, that there are a lot of costs involved with buying and owning beyond the obvious purchasing and insurance costs. Maintenance will be a draw on the bottom line, and any major repairs will be coming out of your pocket. Leasing a vehicle is a solution for some, but for others that vehicle is going to be sitting idle for a good portion of the term of the lease agreement, costing money but not bringing any in.

In such circumstances, box truck rentals can be the perfect solution. Time spans are typically more flexible in these types of arrangements than are the standard leasing terms. A box truck can be rented for a day, a week, a month or even several months. Renting is also a good option for those that are trying to decide if the time is right to buy another truck, if – for example – the burst of business that has made them consider another vehicle is going to last or is just a more temporary market fluke.

Renting can be a great way to decide whether or not the time is right to add a truck to your business or can be the best choice for handling a temporary or seasonal upswing in business. Renting is a way to find the right truck fit for what you need, allowing you to test on the job if a box truck is the best option. It can be a more affordable choice over the long-term, when all factors, are considered, such as the day-to-day expenses involved in ownership, as well as the much larger costs associated with repair, something that renting protects you from.
