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 Columbia.

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 Columbia 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.

Columbia 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 Columbia

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 Columbia, SC
 Remote Refrigerated Storage Columbia, 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 Columbia 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 Columbia, 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.

Columbia Refrigerated Trailer Pro Tip

 Refrigerated Transportation Columbia, 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.

As powerful storms bear down on South Carolina Tuesday, a tornado watch was issued for the Midlands, according to the National Weather Service.

A wind advisory previously went into effect at 6 a.m.

The tornado watch is in effect until 6 p.m. in both Richland County and Lexington County, as well as Calhoun, Clarendon, Fairfield, Kershaw, Lee, Newberry, Orangeburg, Saluda and Sumter counties, the National Weather Service said.

Shortly after 1 p.m., a severe thunderstorm warning was issued for parts of Richland, Lexington, Fairfield, Newberry, Saluda, Aiken and Edgefield counties, according to the National Weather Service. The warning is in effect through 2 p.m., as a line of storms was moving at 50 mph, the National Weather Service said.

The warning was extended to 3 p.m. for Columbia, Lexington and West Columbia.

“Remain alert for a possible tornado!” The National Weather Service said. “Tornadoes can develop quickly from severe thunderstorms. If you spot a tornado go at once into the basement or small central room in a sturdy structure.”

Additionally, the National Weather Service said anybody on or near Lake Murray should move away from the water and take shelter.

This announcement came hours after a flood advisory was issued for Columbia, and flood warnings were put in place in other counties across the Midlands, according to the National Weather Service. Possible flooding of the Congaree River could impact both Richland and Lexington counties, the National Weather Service said.

The risk of flash flooding is low but possible, especially in the northern parts of the Midlands and in urban areas where drainage is poor, National Weather Service meteorologists said in a Tuesday morning briefing. There is a greater risk of river flooding beginning Wednesday, according to the briefing.

But powerful, gusty winds remain the greatest threat posed by the storms that are moving into the Columbia area, the National Weather Service said.

The storms are expected to increase in strength by the afternoon, and will remain a threat into the night, according to the briefing. The Midlands can expect the greatest impacts between noon and 6 p.m., but the effects will be present hours before and later, the National Weather Service said.

Strong winds are predicted, with powerful gusts that could reach 45 mph, according to the briefing. Some wind gusts could be enhanced by thunderstorms and might exceed 70 mph, the National Weather Service said.

At the peak of the storms, maximum sustained winds outside of the thunderstorms are predicted to be at about 30 mph in the Columbia area, according to the briefing.

Additionally, there’s the potential for a few tornadoes to be embedded within lines of storms, and a significant EF2+ tornado, with gusts as powerful as 135 mph, is possible, the National Weather Service said.

The wind advisory is in effect until at least 10 p.m., meteorologists said.

Gusty winds will blow around unsecured objects.

Powerful winds and tornadoes could cause considerable damage to trees and branches, in addition to structures including mobile homes, roofs and outbuildings. Vehicles would also be under siege in the case of a tornado.

Damage to trees and branches creates the possibility of downed power lines and outages.

As of 11:45 a.m., more than 19,000 outages were reported in South Carolina.

Meteorologists also urged drivers to use caution on Tuesday because winds this strong can make driving difficult.

This prompted most Midlands school districts to close buildings and switch to e-learning for students on Tuesday.

“If you must drive during the worst of the weather, adjust your speed and follow distance accordingly,” the South Carolina Department of Public Safety said on social media.

Strong to severe thunderstorms and heavy rainfall is also included in a hazardous weather outlook for the Columbia area.

There is a 100% chance of precipitation in Columbia, and more than an inch of rain is possible Tuesday, the forecast shows. Localized amounts in other areas of the Midlands could be higher. Previous rainfall predictions called for more precipitation to accumulate, but have since been reduced because the storms are expected to be fast moving, according to the briefing.

“Most flooding deaths occur in vehicles,” the National Weather Service said. “Never drive through a flooded roadway or around barricades. Turn around, don’t drown.”

Even after the storms move out of the area, the effects are expected to linger. Conditions on Wednesday morning and afternoon are predicted to be breezy, with wind gusts potentially exceeding 30 mph, according to the briefing.

There won’t be much time before more severe weather is expected to affect the Midlands, as the potential for powerful thunderstorms with strong winds and a 90% chance of rain is in the Friday forecast, according to the National Weather Service.

Lightning and tornadoes are equally as dangerous. Here are some lightning safety tips from the National Weather Service. By National Weather Service

Politics, religion, and abortion were all discussed on Saturday during the March for Life.

COLUMBIA, S.C. — On Saturday, hundreds gathered for South Carolina's 50th March for Life outside of the State House.

South Carolina Citizens for Life founded the event and had dozens of churches represented. It drew people from around the state, including Mary and Karen from Charleston.

"We came out here to save lives, to save our babies," Karen said.

After a short walk to the State House steps, speakers, including Attorney General Alan Wilson, Rep. Joe Wilson, and Lt. Gov. Pamela Evette, spoke. Evette highlighted the work her office has done after a year of abortion legislation in the state.

"In our executive budget, we've asked for $500,000 to go to children's trust. $250,000 of that will get matched 3-to-1 by the federal government," she said. "Right now, the program, OBGYNs refer an at-risk mom to the children's trust program. A nurse will come out to their home; they'll help them when it comes to prenatal care to help with the baby when it's born to helping them find options with careers."

In 2023, the legislature passed a new version of the fetal heartbeat law that essentially bans abortion after six weeks. After a long battle, the South Carolina Supreme Court took on the bill to decide whether it was constitutional. In August 2023, the court decided 4-1 to uphold the law. Evette said she sees the last year as progress.

"If you save one life, it's a win. Here in South Carolina, when the first Heartbeat Bill got locked up in the Supreme Court, and then the Supreme Court voted against it, we saw out-of-state abortions rise at astronomical levels," she said. "That was not good for South Carolina; to be an abortion destination state was not what we wanted to be labeled as. If this law didn't take everybody where they wanted to, know that you are saving more lives today than you did before it passed."

For Jonathan Bruce, the day was about spreading his message and connecting with others in Columbia.

"What I believe is we should come to a consensus of understanding of what life is," he said. "I believe if we can come to an agreement of where life starts, we can actually get somewhere."

Mary and Karen said they came to spread awareness of available resources for mothers in the state.

"That baby doesn't have a choice but a mother has a choice," Karen said. "There are so many people out there today that want children but can't have children."

Planned Parenthood did not respond to a request for comment on the rally.

More severe weather is forecast to hit the Columbia area just days after a line of powerful storms rumbled through the Midlands.

A lake wind advisory was still in effect Wednesday from the previous day when National Weather Service meteorologists said more powerful storms are heading toward the Columbia area.

Friday’s forecast shows another strong system will move through the area in the afternoon and last through the night, meteorologists said in a Wednesday morning briefing.

Thunderstorms are expected to form and could cause damaging winds and possibly tornadoes, according to the briefing.

While thunderstorms could begin in the morning, the greatest threat of severe weather is in the afternoon, the National Weather Service said.

Areas at the greatest risk of the severe weather threats are the southern and eastern Midlands, south of Interstate 20, according to the briefing.

Powerful winds and tornadoes could cause considerable damage to trees and branches, in addition to mobile homes, roofs and outbuildings. Vehicles would also be under siege in the case of a tornado.

Damage to trees and branches creates the possibility of downed power lines and outages.

As of Wednesday morning, more than 14,000 outages were still being reported in South Carolina.

There is 100% chance of precipitation in the Columbia area, and up to an inch of rain is possible Friday, the forecast shows. Localized amounts in other areas of the Midlands could be higher.

As was the case with the lingering effects from Tuesday’s storms, powerful winds could continue to impact the Midlands on Saturday after the next round of severe weather has moved out of the region, the National Weather Service said.

Wind gusts could reach 35 mph Wednesday, and the lake wind advisory runs through 1 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.

A flood warning remains in effect through Saturday night for several rivers across South Carolina. The Congaree River, Saluda River and Wateree River are at risk for flooding, which could affect Richland, Lexington, Calhoun, Kershaw, Fairfield, Newberry, Saluda, Greenwood and Lancaster counties.
