Refrigerated (Reefer) Shipping Containers for Rent
As a company with large-scale refrigeration needs, you need portable warehousing solutions that offer quick installation, convenient storage, and easy cleaning.
Polar Leasing’s fiberglass modular buildings are suitable for a wide range of applications, including refrigerated packaging, additional warehouse space, and food manufacturing.
The Polar Leasing Advantage
Polar Leasing’s products are different from conventional refrigerated shipping containers in that they are developed for stationery and walk-in use instead of transport. With this design, the units offer more efficient use and convenience.
Polar Leasing’s refrigerated walk-in containers are available for rent in 8’ x 10’ and 8’ x 20’ foot models. The temperatures of the containers range between -10°F to 35°F. Custom sizes are available in some markets from 6’ x 6’ to 16’ x 65’. Call for more information about custom sizes.
There are several key benefits of using Polar Leasing’s walk-in refrigerated rental units instead of shipping containers, including:
- Lower on-site labor costs
- No need for costly steel structures
- An aesthetically appealing exterior finish
- Units are ground-resting, so no ramps are needed
- More efficient and cost-effective delivery to your desired location
All walk-in refrigerated units for rent have a low six-inch step into the unit, a fiberglass exterior, a National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) approved interior that has sufficient lighting, and a high-performing and durable refrigeration system.
How Polar Leasing Differs from Standard Refrigerated Shipping Containers
The modular walk-in refrigerators differ from standard refrigerated shipping containers in several ways.
The most significant difference between Polar Leasing’s units and a conventional container is weight. A standard 40-foot refrigerated shipping container weighs 10,000 lbs, whereas the Polar Leasing unit weighs less than 2,000 lbs. Even though a Polar Leasing unit specializes in walk-in and stationary use, the lighter weight allows for optimal portability and cost-effective transportation.
Standard refrigerated shipping containers must be set in place with the help of a crane. This can be expensive and time-consuming. Polar Leasing units don’t require heavy-duty machinery during delivery or pick-up.
The preparation and handling requirements for a Polar Leasing refrigeration unit is significantly lower than those of a standard refrigerated shipping container. As a business, your input cost per unit and overheads will be lower, which can result in profit increases.
Polar Leasing units also have fiberglass exteriors that are visually appealing and suitable for any outdoor setting, such as weddings. Unlike conventional refrigerated shipping containers, a Polar Leasing refrigerated container is:
- Waterproof and seamless
- Resistant to the sun’s harsh rays
- Resistant to rust
These differences allow for minimal maintenance and allocation of valuable resources to ensure that the refrigeration unit is functioning optimally.
Since Polar Leasing units are developed to allow for optimal efficiency and storage convenience, your staff will spend little time operating the container, especially since the units feature easy-open doors and programmable refrigerator monitoring.
Transportation of Polar Leasing Refrigerated Containers
If your business can benefit from the use of a temporary, loss cost, and efficient refrigerated unit rental, contact us today and request a reservation! Polar Leasing’s expert sales representatives can assist you in reserving the rental unit right for you.
Depending on availability in your location, Polar Leasing may be able to deliver the unit to your site within 12 – 24 hours and provide you with any information that you may need. They will also arrange a delivery date that is convenient for you.
Transporting a Polar Leasing unit is straightforward. Since the delivery driver will unload the unit at the exact location where you need it, you won’t have to worry about moving the unit around yourself. Also, delivery doesn’t require the use of a crane as in the case of a standard refrigerator container, so you won’t have to prepare a large workspace.
Keep in mind, however, that there should be an open area of approximately three feet around the condensing unit to ensure sufficient air ventilation to the walk-in. Since Polar Leasing is not a licensed electrical service provider, you will also need the services of a licensed electrician to power the unit.
When your lease term expires, arrange a date that is convenient for you with Polar Leasing, and they will schedule transportation back to the depot location. Then, make sure that there is enough room for the transport truck to access the unit and that there are no obstructions near the unit.
Operating the Unit
After delivery, the first step is to have an electrician connect electricity to the unit and turning it on. You then have to wait an hour before the internal temperature reaches the appropriate level for your products. If you have a larger unit, this waiting period may be longer.

The interior left wall of a standard unit is fitted with a single temperature adjustment dial that is easy to use. It is important to note that setting the temperature lower than necessary can result in higher energy consumption and running costs.
The interior of a Polar Leasing unit is fitted with bright interior lighting. The light switch is conveniently located next to the doors.
