Frequently Asked Questions

What is a refrigerated shipping container called?

A refrigerated shipping container is often referred to as a Reefer or a Container Fridge.

How can I rent a reefer container?

A reefer container, or a frigerated container, can be hired through us at S Jones. The process is the exact same as our usual hire services however, the refrigerator will need to be commissioned on site due to it needing to be plugged in to work.

From the initial quote from S Jones Containers all the way through to delivery, the service was top class. I dealt with Clare Wright and Charlotte Seymour, there attention to detail and high work rate allowed the container to be ordered and delivered in a timely and smooth manner for our client.

great reliable and informative service already looking at using S Jones again on another project

3rd Jul 2024

I just wanted to thank everyone at S.Jones for the brilliant, professional service throughout the whole process of buying and delivering my container and also for their patience whilst we coped with very unhelpful weather on site. Special thanks to Rachel and Lorna and Lee at John Butlin & Co. Ltd
Transport and the very helpful, professional and efficient driver on the day. I had never bought a container (which by the way was very smart for a reconditioned one) and they all helped me when I must have been a complete pain at times!
