40FT REFRIGERATED
STORAGE CONTAINERS

Store large volumes of product safely

Safely increase your shipping volume per consignment with our longest refrigerated (“Reefer”) container. The 40ft provides reliable, consistent climate control to your temperature-sensitive cargo in transit or on site. Beyond our refrigerated, containers you can trust your most temperature sensitive products in, we also have Non-Functioning Reefers which serve as insulated containers that are great for protecting goods from temperature fluctuation.

Safely store mass-quantity perishables

Storage of temperature sensitive cargo can only be trusted to a high-quality climate-controlled Reefer. Our 40ft containers offer maximum efficiency for safely moving large quantities of goods. The container runs off three phase power (500 volts and 32 amps).

40ft Functioning Refrigerated containers are commonly used for:

  • Storage for food manufacturers
  • Paletized cool room storage
  • Remote location food storage
  • Event or festival onsite refrigerated storage
  • Long distance transportation of temperature sensitive goods
  • Surplus stock for supermarkets
  • Safe transportation of meat, seafood, dairy products, frozen goods, flowers, fruit and vegetables
  • Storage of medical supplies or chemicals

Non-Functioning Refrigerated containers (NOR)

These are simply decommissioned refrigerated containers with their motors removed. A Reefer has a stainless steel interior, aluminium T-bar flooring system, 75mm-100mm of insulation – without its motor, the container still protects from outside extremes and is incredibly useful for:

  • Storing wine
  • Storage of artwork and important documents
  • Backyard storage sheds or home projects where insulation is required
  • Storing goods that need a relatively consistent cool temperature

Hiring a container is an inexpensive short-term solution. The hiring process is hassle-free, and typically the container will be delivered to your house, work, farm, or wherever you need it in 2-3 days, or even within 24 hours if required. With flexible hire periods beyond 1 month on offer and a range of delivery options to suit, this is an unbeatable, low commitment solution. Get a quote now and see why so many Australians choose National Containers to safely store their items.
