About Our Refrigerated Trailers for Rent in South Carolina

At Charleston Refrigerators Trailers, all of our mobile rentals are well-built and crafted with a seamless fiberglass design for both reliability and refrigeration efficiency. When you make arrangements to have an ice truck for rent in Charleston delivered or picked up, you'll enjoy a range of helpful trailer features, including the following:

  • Each Trailer Comes in a 6x16 Size
  • Four-Inch Walls for Structural Rigidity and Cool Air Retention
  • 54-Inch Reinforced Doors for Easy Loading and Enhanced Safety
  • Pellet-Duty Floor for Ease of Convenience

Cooling and freezing take place reliably with an integrated GOVI Arktik 2000US series refrigeration unit. These compact units provide a temperature range of 0 to 50 degrees F, are all-electric, and only require 110V and 15 amps. Since our coolers have the capability of maintaining temps both below and above 32 degrees Fahrenheit, our ice truck rentals double as both freezers and coolers. This handy feature makes them a more convenient and robust tool for your personal or business needs versus other mobile cooler rentals in Charleston.

With CRT by your side, there's no need to rent separate ice trucks or mobile refrigerators because our unit is 2-in-1, saving you both time and money.

How Does a Refrigerated Trailer for Rent in Charleston Work?

Generally speaking, refrigerated trailers aren't meant to cool down or freeze the items stored within them. Instead, they're meant to keep products at a specific temperature for a certain amount of time. At Charleston Refrigerators Trailers, our team members use Polar King Mobile trailers. We made the choice to use this brand for a reason: These ice trucks both meet and exceed all compliance guidelines set forth by the NATM or National Association of Trailer Manufacturers.

Our refrigerated trailers for rent utilize three major components:

Compressor

Compressor

When the compressor is powered correctly, it draws in refrigerant and then compresses it. Once the refrigerant is compressed, it becomes liquified and is passed along to the trailer's condenser.

Condenser

Condenser

After the gas is compressed by the compressor, it is passed on to the condenser for a heat exchange process. The condenser fan allows outside air to flow through, leading to the dissipation of heat and a decrease in the refrigerant's temperature. This cooling process results in the refrigerant condensing from hot gas to regular-temperature liquid.

Evaporator

Evaporator

The evaporator receives the liquid refrigerant through an expansion valve that regulates its flow and cooling. The refrigerant transforms into a cool liquid as it passes through the valve, then expands and turns into a warm gas in the evaporator. This gas absorbs the heat and air inside the container and is then drawn into the compressor to restart the cycle.

Charleston Refrigerated Trailer Pro Tip:

Refrigeration units can run in cycles or continuously. Running the refrigeration unit in cycles reduces fuel consumption but creates more temperature variation. Frozen foods are less sensitive to temperature changes and can endure these variations. Continuous cooling is better suited for products and goods that are not able to withstand temperature variations well. At Charleston Refrigerators Trailers, our mobile rental options utilize continuous cooling to ensure your items don't suffer from temperature variations.

5 Benefits of Using an Ice Truck for Rent in Charleston

For business owners, managing funds and staying on top of costs is a crucial part of owning a profitable company. Purchasing and maintaining a fleet of refrigerated trailers can be a significant financial burden, requiring substantial capital investment and ongoing maintenance costs. However, renting refrigerated trucks can help businesses allocate their funds more wisely.

That's especially true for businesses that do not frequently engage in long-distance refrigerated shipping. Why purchase an entire vehicle and refrigeration system when you need the trailer for more minor tasks, like delivering flowers on Valentine's Day or storing products after an unexpected power outage? If you have a specific product line or a limited-time special, it's more practical to go with a refrigerated truck for rent than to purchase an ice truck outright.

In terms of the additional benefits of refrigerated trailer rentals, there's no shortage of them to highlight:

 Refrigerated Trailers Charleston, SC
 Remote Refrigerated Storage Charleston, SC
  • 01 No Maintenance Costs When you rent a refrigerated trailer, one of the biggest benefits is that you don't have to worry about expensive maintenance and repairs. If you were to buy a unit, it would only be a matter of time before you or a qualified professional would have to make repairs. At Charleston Refrigerated Trailer, all of our trailer rental options are well-maintained and up-to-date on repairs and updates.
  • 02 Cost-Effective When you buy an ice truck, you're making a long-term investment that may take a long time to pay off. When you rent, you're getting an immediate solution, which is better for your bank account when you only need the trailer for an abbreviated time.
  • 03 No Storage Costs What many folks don't think about when they buy a refrigerated trailer is that they will need someplace to store it when it's not in use. Often, that means paying even more money to rent a storage unit. With a refrigerated trailer for rent in Charleston, you can eliminate the expenses associated with storage units.
  • 04 Focus on Day-to-Day Business Obligations With an ice truck rental, you can concentrate on your core business activities instead of allocating resources towards managing a fleet of trucks and dealing with all the logistics involved.
  • 05 Refrigerated Space Catered to Your Needs Renting a refrigerated trailer from CRT means you have the flexibility of booking a short or longer-term trailer rental. That can be very helpful, especially for growing businesses and events that might have changing needs from month to month.

Charleston Refrigerated Trailer Pro Tip

 Refrigerated Transportation Charleston, SC

Looking for a spot to practice towing and trailering? Practicing these maneuvers in an empty parking lot is an excellent idea. It's always better to learn the movements of your trailer in empty spaces, so you can avoid any mishaps like trying to back up and park in front of a busy store.

Also named Palmira Barbecue, the forthcoming establishment will be located at 2366 Ashley River Road, previously occupied by Sunflower Cafe, which closed in September.

Makan

210 Rutledge Ave., downtown Charleston

Last year, a popular Washington, D.C., restaurant serving Malaysian cuisine signed a lease to take over the 2,350-square-foot downtown Charleston space previously occupied by Goulette Rotisserie and Grill.

South Carolina native James Wozniuk will open Makan, at 210 Rutledge Ave. across from Fuel Charleston, this year.

Located in the Columbia Heights neighborhood of the nation’s capital, Makan serves noodle and rice dishes packed with flavor and spice. Wozniuk, who grew up in Greenville and has family in Charleston, was first drawn to Malaysian food during a layover in Kuala Lumpur. The stopover inspired three more trips and the chef’s first solo venture.

Wozniuk hinted at a Charleston location for Makan last summer, when he hosted pop-ups at Rutledge Avenue restaurant Chasing Sage and downtown brewery Revelry Brewing Co. More Charleston pop-ups are planned ahead of the restaurant’s opening.

Marbled & Fin

480 East Bay St., downtown Charleston

The Neighborhood Dining Group is adding a fifth Charleston-area restaurant to its portfolio. Marbled & Fin, a “modern” steakhouse with plenty of seafood on the menu, will open at 480 East Bay St. in the first half of 2024.

Marbled & Fin’s name is a play on the steak and seafood concept, new to the Charleston-based restaurant group. Husk, Minero, Delaney Oyster House and The James are the other four restaurants in the Neighborhood Dining Group, led by David Howard, who founded the company in 2001.

Four new restaurants catering to a variety of tastes are on the way across the Charleston area.

In Moncks Corner, an Italian restaurant called Capy’s plans to open at 323 E. Main St. where Chill-N-Grill once operated. The new venue beside Unity Park will open Jan. 22.

The family-owned and operated establishment comes from Jack and Gabby Capocciama and his brother, Caleb Capocciama.

Hours will be 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday-Wednesday and 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. A Sunday brunch could be added later.

On the peninsula, meanwhile, a new Thai offering called The Mango Tree plans to open at 396 Huger St. beside the KH Smoke vape shop. Renovations began after the first of the year. An opening date has not been announced.

Also on the way are two new bagel shops.

Ruby’s New York Style Bagels plans to launch a fourth Lowcountry location by the spring at 3485 Park Avenue Blvd. in Carolina Park in northern Mount Pleasant. An opening is planned for late February or early March.

The eatery has other locations in Montague Corners Shopping Center on Dorchester Road in North Charleston, in Northcutt Plaza on Coleman Boulevard in Mount Pleasant and in Crossroads Centre on Ashley River Road in West Ashley.

A fifth location is in the works for the planned Marketplace at Carnes Crossroads in Goose Creek where Publix supermarket will be built.

Also in the bagel business, Spread Bagelry is expected to open its second Lowcountry restaurant soon.

The new shop will be on the ground floor of the Hoffler Place student apartment complex at King and Spring streets in downtown Charleston.

The company brought its first Lowcountry restaurant to 1400 Shucker Circle in the Oyster Park development off Ben Sawyer Boulevard in Mount Pleasant last summer.

A spokeswoman said the new venue is ready to open but awaiting final permits from the city.

On the way

A new retail shop is coming to a mixed-use development on Charleston’s lower peninsula.

Atlanta-rooted Hutton & Home, offering curated collections of original art, fine home furnishings and interior design services, plans to open in a 3,660-square-foot shop in the spring on the ground floor of The Jasper at 310 Broad St., according to The Beach Co.

The business will join a variety of other shops and restaurants in the 12-story development that includes 25,000 square feet of first-floor retail space, 75,000 square feet of office space, 219 apartments and an enclosed parking garage.

Changing hands

A longtime Summerville business is now under new ownership and a new name.

Oakbrook Custom Embroidery Inc. at 960 Bacons Bridge Road in Palmetto Plaza is now Infinite Creations.

Business

Vicki and Bill Gannon decided to retire and were going to close the 37-year-old shop on Dec. 31, but Ericka Horne, owner of Infinite Creations in the Publix-anchored Market at Cane Bay in Berkeley County, decided to buy the business.

The transaction closed Jan. 2. Horne’s second shop will include gifts, etching, embroidery and other items.

“We are working with her to assure a smooth transition,” Vicki Gannon said.

No longer tentative

A Pawleys Island-based cafe and to-go market opens Jan. 11 in Mount Pleasant.

Get Carried Away confirmed its soft opening will take place at 9 a.m. at 644 Coleman Blvd. in Moultrie Plaza Shopping Center. Last week, owner Brian Henry said the launch date was tentative, pending a final inspection.

The business offers a variety of menu items for in-house dining or carry out from 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Henry said he’s considering Sunday hours during the summer.

Gerry Turner Believes ‘Fate Played a Hand’ in His Decision to Move to Charleston with Theresa Nist (Exclusive)

From The Bachelor Mansion to a sprawling Southern dream home!

After getting engaged on Thursday’s Golden Bachelor finale, Gerry Turner and Theresa Nist tell PEOPLE they plan to start their lives together in Charleston, South Carolina.

“One of the things that I think fate played a hand in is the possibility of where we might wind up living,” Gerry says. “For the last couple of years, when my family gets together, I've talked about moving to South Carolina, and it's an idea I've toyed with. And then in conversation with Theresa, a private moment, she's saying, ‘Well, yeah, my son lives near Charleston in South Carolina.’”

Golden Bachelor Gerry Turner Told Fiancée in the Fantasy Suite He Planned to Propose: ‘I Was Very Confident’ (Exclusive)

Gerry currently lives in Indiana and Theresa hails from New Jersey, but that conversation made it easy for the couple to decide where they should reside.

“And all of a sudden it's like, there's a big problem that is gone,” Gerry says. “The issue of compromising on where to live and how to reconcile families and all of that is, it's no longer an issue.”

The reality stars hope their families will visit often. “We want to have a house that's so inviting that everyone would want to come,” Theresa, 70, says. “Maybe a pool so they all want to come and have fun.”

Lucky for Gerry and Theresa, their kids have already bonded.

“Our daughters, they're like sisters now,” the father of two says.

Theresa agrees. “My daughter says, ‘Thank you for giving me two more sisters,’” the financial services professional says. “She has a sister-in-law already but now, two more sisters.”

After his hometown date with Theresa’s family, Gerry saw her family as his own.

“I looked at Jen and it was like, ‘This could be my own daughter,’” Gerry says of his fiancée’s daughter. “ I literally was having those thoughts because she was so kind and she was so sensitive to the situation, to her mom and to me. The whole dynamic just worked.”

Theresa and Gerry plan to bring their families together to celebrate Hanukkah this month. “We'll have a holiday dinner together with everyone,” Gerry says.

As they’ve continued getting to know each other over phone calls and text messages these last few months, Gerry and Theresa learned they share similar views on one very important — albeit unromantic — facet of combining their lives.

“Financially, we're the same,” Gerry says. “The way we handle money is the same.”

Theresa clarifies that that means the pair consider themselves “somewhat frugal.”

While Gerry and Theresa look forward to moving in together, they don’t have an exact plan for when that will happen.

Golden Bachelor’s Fiancée Says She Started 'Slinking Away' When Gerry Turner Misspoke During Proposal (Exclusive)

“We've had conversations and we've narrowed it down to a time window, but that's always in flux,” the retired restaurateur says. “We have two homes to sell. We have other events that we're going to have to deal with and so forth.”

One major event: their live, televised wedding that will air on ABC in January.

“​​When you're in your 20s and you put something off for a year, it's a very small percentage of your life,” Gerry says. “In your 70s, the clock ticks faster. And I'm 100% certain I found the right girl for me. So it's like, why not?”

Gerry can’t wait for his future to unfold, but Theresa keeps him grounded.

“Fortunately, Theresa is the more patient, I think, of the two of us,” he says. “Me, I'm like, ‘Come on, let's go, it's time to go have fun. Life's a wasting. Let's go.’”

Never miss a story — sign up for PEOPLE's free daily newsletter to stay up-to-date on the best of what PEOPLE has to offer, from juicy celebrity news to compelling human interest stories.

The Golden Wedding will air Jan. 4 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Storm drenches Florida and causes floods in South Carolina as it moves up East Coast

GEORGETOWN, S.C. (AP) — An intense late-year storm barreled up the East Coast on Sunday with heavy rains and strong winds that shattered rainfall records, forced water rescues from flooded streets and washed out holiday celebrations.

Authorities rescued dozens of motorists stranded by floodwaters in South Carolina’s waterfront community of Georgetown, Georgetown County spokesperson Jackie Broach said. More than 9 inches (22.9 centimeters) of rain fell in the area situated between Charleston and Myrtle Beach since late Saturday.

“It’s not just the areas that we normally see flooding, that are flood-prone,” Broach said. “It’s areas that we’re not really expecting to have flooding issues...It’s like a tropical storm, it just happens to be in December.”

The tide in Charleston Harbor hit its fourth highest level on record and was “well above the highest tide for a non-tropical system,” according to the National Weather Service.

Blizzard conditions bear down on central US, closing schools and highways

Rising sea levels driven by human-caused climate change mean even relatively weak weather systems can now produce storm surges previously associated with hurricanes, said Meteorologist Jeff Masters, co-founder of the Weather Underground. In South Carolina that’s worsened by natural subsidence along the coast.

By 2050, Charleston is expected to see another 14 inches (35.6 centimeters) of sea level rise, Masters said.

“In Charleston, this is the sixth time this year already that they’ve had a major coastal flood. Most of those would not have been major flooding 100 years ago, because the sea level has risen that much,” he said.

The storm was forecast to gain strength as it tracked along the Georgia and Carolina coasts, producing heavy rain and gusty winds before sweeping into New England by Monday morning, the weather service said. Wind gusts of 35 mph to 45 mph (56 kph to 72 kph) could bring down trees, especially on saturated ground.

There were numerous road closures in Charleston and across South Carolina’s Lowcountry, while stranded cars littered streets.

There were no reports of injuries or deaths in Georgetown County, Broach said. Gusty winds were strong enough to topple some signs and trees. Outdoor holiday decorations were tossed about, she said.

Water rescues also took place on Kiawah and Seabrook islands, according to media outlets.

Charleston International Airport had more than 3 inches (8 centimeters) of rain in 24 hours — almost five times the prior record set in 1975, according to the National Weather Service.

Farther up the coast, minor to moderate coastal flooding was expected Sunday, according to the National Weather Service office in Wilmington, North Carolina.

There were more than 31,000 power outages in South Carolina, according to PowerOutage.us, along with over 14,000 in North Carolina and more than 11,000 in Florida.

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul warned of a possible 2 to 4 inches (5.1 to 10.2 centimeters) of rain, powerful winds and potential flooding in parts of the state. Flood watches were in effect in many locations in New York City, and high wind warnings were activated around the city and Long Island.

“We will get through this storm, but preparation is the key,” New York Mayor Eric Adams said. City officials told residents to expect several hours of rain and possible delays during Monday morning’s commute.

Colder air behind the storm will trigger lake-effect snow across the Great Lakes toward the Appalachians and upstate New York into Tuesday, the weather service said.

The storm dumped up to 5 inches (12.7 centimeters) of rain across Florida, inundating streets and forcing the cancellation of boat parades and other holiday celebrations.

The National Weather Service issued flood warnings and minor flooding advisories for a wide swath of the state, from the southwest Gulf Coast to Jacksonville. Major airports remained open, however, at the start of the busy holiday travel season.

“Today is not the day to go swimming or boating!” Sheriff Carmine Marceno of Lee County, on Florida’s southwestern coast, said on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Coastal advisories were issued for much of Florida as strong winds churned waters in the Gulf and along the north Atlantic coast.

The storm could be good news for residents in southwest Florida who have been facing water restrictions and drought conditions heading into what normally is the region’s dry season.

The weather service also warned of 2 to 4 inches (5.1 to 10.2 centimeters) of rain in parts of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, with the heaviest expected late Sunday night, and possible urban and small stream flooding and at least minor flooding to some rivers through Monday.

Forecasters also warned of strong winds in coastal areas, gale-force winds offshore, and moderate coastal flooding along Delaware Bay and widespread minor coastal flooding elsewhere.

The weather service said there is a slight risk of excessive rainfall over parts of New England through Monday morning, with the potential for flash flooding. Northern New England is expected to get the heaviest rain Monday through Tuesday morning.
