Access to inexpensive resources is always a big business advantage, especially in an environment where profit margins are tight. Today, the food industry is often described as extremely competitive, with many companies needing to optimise their expenses at every step, including their cold storage.
Containerised storage isn’t a new concept, but it has a lot of potential to become more widely used in a number of roles. Here are some business goals that are more readily accomplished by enterprises that embrace refrigerated containers for storing their perishable goods:
An obvious reason to adopt storage containers is the possibility of adding additional products into your commercial offering. Frozen goods must be kept at a certain temperature and access to abundant cold storage is therefore mandatory in order to store produce on-site. Since containers can be acquired with a much lower investment than traditional freezers, they empower smaller vendors to venture into new niches. Leasing containers lowers costs further and provides a cost-effective option for companies wanting to test a new product in the marketplace.
Perishable goods must often be stored on-site at consistent, precise temperatures. The portable and flexible nature of refrigerated containers from Spacewise means they can be used by companies to help reduce waste and increase revenues.
Through leasing refrigerated containers, companies can benefit from handling larger batches of products, potentially obtaining goods at lower prices and organizing warehousing at scale. Leasing a few extra units can be a savvy way to increase the volume of business and achieve indirect savings through more efficient product handling. The gains are usually proportional to the increase of volume. With stock located UK-wide, It’s possible to lease several containers on flexible terms from Spacewise and increase capacity to any desired level.
Due to post-Brexit Britain's current economic climate, many companies choose to play it safe and explore short-term solutions that help them turn a profit without putting large amounts of capital at stake. By leasing containers on flexible terms, businesses of all sizes can gain some flexibility and offset the impact of macroeconomic factors that could complicate their finances.

Coca-Cola Enterprises have developed a strong relationship with Spacewise during the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games. The Spacewise team have worked effectively with CCE providing support to deliver on time solutions for this high profile logistical operation, contributing to a successful Games time operation for our business.
I wish to say Spacewise (Sharon) response time is superb (even whilst she is on holiday!) and time between my enquiry and quote provided is remarkably quick.
Equipment delivery is good quality and clean. Commissioning (usually next day unless otherwise organised) is complete by suitably qualified engineers and an ‘operating’ explanation given to the end user.
In addition their after-sales support is very good, tech. offering advice and engineer if deemed appropriate.
We contacted Spacewise to supply us with 2 refrigeration storage units on behalf of the client and their bar supplier as a long hire during the peak season. We haven’t experienced a single problem with them and we have found the team to be helpful and reliable at all times, particularly Sharon Rimell whom we have been liaising with. Happy bar company, happy client! They come highly recommended.
