Should I buy or rent refrigeration equipment?

What are the benefits of renting cold store equipment?
There are a number of benefits of renting cold units and blast freezers over buying them. For example, renting is much more flexible than buying so you can have the exact equipment that you need, only when you need it.
You'll also save money on the outlay of buying an item outright, as well as reduce the costs associated with renting space to store your refrigerated goods inside.
Renting also saves money on maintenance and repair costs.
If you need permanent cold storage, it can be more cost-effective to buy, though.
How long can I store products in a cool storage container?
Refrigeration units are designed to stay permanently cold. They can be used as a cooling solution on either a long-term or short-term basis.
For example, a weatherproof storage unit could be stationed outside your business premises on a long-term basis or you could rent a mobile cool bar unit for a one-off event. You could hire cold storage whilst your usual freezers are being cleaned.
If you rent or buy a free-standing refrigeration unit, you can take it with you should you choose to relocate your business?
