How It All Started:

In 1997 while I was still working for the family air conditioning business in Ormond Beach Florida, I stumbled across a bagel shop with a need for some temporary refrigerated storage while we did some repairs. To my surprise there was nothing available in our local area. We either had to drive to Jacksonville or Orlando an hour away in different directions. It drove me on a journey that has changed my life forever. That same year I built a prototype small refrigerated trailer and the rest is history. Fast forward to today, we continue to build for small to Fortune 500 companies and have also lowered the entry bar for entrepreneurs to get into this incredible business and earn an income renting small portable refrigerated trailers to their starving local audience. If you have farmers, florists, caterers, medical facilities, restaurants, hotels, fairs, festivals and special events in your area this could be an excellent opportunity for you. Now, today you can own a fleet of income producing refrigerated trailers for what people pay for one refrigerated van or refrigerated truck.

What Cooler Trailers Believe:

We believe designing the best refrigerated and freezer trailer will provide you the best value or best bang for your dollar. We have learned that a quality built product will last longer, provide better results, save you on maintenance and repairs and have better resale value for your business down the road. Experience has taught us that building our trailers in three parts is absolutely the way to go and provides you with the coldest 115 volt mechanically refrigerated box on the market. Step one is our insulated truck body. Building the box separately allows for the floor to be completely sealed and keep the heat from the street from penetrating your goods. Step two is the chassis. Our aluminum frame keeps your chassis from rust while 5200 lbs.  Dexter torsion axles gently carry twice the load of our competitors.Step three is the 115 volt refrigeration unit. We believe you need a refrigeration unit that is designed to freeze or cool with the correct freon to get cold enough for your products safety, not a window unit.Our beliefs align with what has been working in the transport industry since 1925, so why reinvent the wheel.
