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 Hanahan.

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 Hanahan 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.

Hanahan 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 Hanahan

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:

 Remote Refrigerated Storage Hanahan, 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 Hanahan 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 Hanahan, 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.

Hanahan Refrigerated Trailer Pro Tip

 Refrigerated Transportation Hanahan, 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.

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCIV) — Learning how to save lives one class at a time is the goal of a course at Hanahan Middle School.

"Our principal came to me last year , wanting to start a new class," teacher Susan Hill said. "And we did."

Read more: Berkeley County begins construction of Nexton Middle School

The new class, called Introduction to Health Professions, brings the medical world to the classroom.

"We go through a lot about the body systems, different tools used by health professionals, and different types of jobs," Hill said.

For students to get a complete understanding of what it’s like to work in the medical field, health professionals from the community are invited to come speak, including Rodney Profit, a training captain with Boeing Security and Fire.

Learning about these jobs isn't the only takeaway for the students; they leave the course certified in basic life support.

"We do everything from adult child infant, CPR, choking first aid, and AED usages to get these students certified in basic life support," Profit said. "Students are given a chance to kind of look and explore what's out there for them and letting them know that there are no hurdles. If there are any hurdles, they can transverse those hurdles, but no one can tell them they can't do what they want to do.”

This encouragement has left students with the world at their fingertips.

"This has opened a lot more like pathways," student Lianny Martinez said.

Student, Savannah Wika said, "I would say it really like helped me realize what I really want to do for like a job. It really opened up what's happening when you go to the hospital."

The course also includes off-campus field trips. The class recently visited Charleston Southern University (CSU), where students got a tour of the campus.

For Hill, she believes each and every one of the students are more than capable of accomplishing their dreams.

"I just hope they understand how valuable they are and what a future they have," she said. "They have their whole lives in front of them and I'm just really excited to see what they do with that."

Hill says she could not be prouder of her students and teaching them has been a rewarding experience.

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCBD) – It was a chilly and crisp October night in the Otranto neighborhood on Monday, a perfect setting for the community’s annual Halloween decorating contest.

A walk down many of the Italian-named streets and you’ll see the sparkle of orange, green and purple lights inviting a view from passersby — but look a little closer and you’ll find skeletons running amuck and ghosts dangling in the trees high above.

While many homes in the neighborhood are beautifully decorated for the fall season, the star of the show is there along Monte Sano Drive where you’ll find home after home boasting dazzling but spooky décor.

Just past a home where Freddy Kruger himself sits off the front porch — and across from Roma Road — is a wildly haunted cemetery scene. There is much to take in with a dark creature looming over the graveyard and eye-catching creatures no matter where you turn.

At this home you will find a sign out front begging neighbors to keep Halloween a beloved holiday. “Do not let Halloween be a thing of the past,” the sign read. “Decorate, turn on your light, hand out candy … Be a community!”

It was the Judge’s Choice 1st place winner.

A walk around the loop, enjoy the sights and sounds of inflatable ghosts and animated ghouls shouting at you from the roadway. Or a skeleton who was not able to keep anything down.

On the opposite end of Monte Sano Drive is a home you simply cannot miss. Set with a purple and green glow are myriad Halloween animatronics begging for your soul. From witches to skeletons, a giant werewolf and even the headless horseman — be sure to stop and see what this yard has to offer.

Our favorite was the green goblin and a nicely timed scare. The home won second place scariest yard.

And just across the street you’ll find large sheets of spiderweb draping portions of the yard. A frightening scarecrow and large ghosts were the setting for this home winning second place most creative.

A short trip away down Monte Sano Court and you’ll find a home fit for Jack and Sally.

Say hello to Oogie Boogie and the gang as you walk through the pumpkin shaped door and take in the Nightmare Before Christmas themed yard including scenes from Halloween, Easter, and Christmas.

Musicians and business owners across the Charleston area will be celebrated for their achievements at the annual Lowcountry Music Hall of Fame.

The idea to create a local celebration for the area’s musicians came from Michael Davis in 2015. Davis owns the 25-plus-year-old Ye Olde Music Shop in Hanahan. The store is advertised as the largest Gibson, Fender, Martin, Taylor and Paul Reed Smith dealer in South Carolina. Davis was inspired by his business and customers to create a new Lowcountry tradition that went beyond his beloved shop.

The Hall of Fame has inducted several well-known Charleston artists, as well as some “unsung heroes” who can benefit from the recognition. The inaugural ceremony in 2015 inducted local music stores, politicians and music schools, with the tradition continuing into 2023.

The Lowcountry Hall of Fame will introduce 15 artists, business owners and radio personalities into the 2023 catalogue.

Attendees can enjoy food trucks, music mastery and good times with local music lovers at the induction ceremony for the 2023 Lowcountry Music Hall of Fame at 1 p.m. Oct. 22 at the Hanahan Amphitheater, 3100 Amphitheater Ave.

While we’ve honed in on the best records to come out of South Carolina this past year, we’ve also tasked our writers with sharing their favorite discs to come from outside of the state.

Here are the picks for 2023 albums released by artists outside of South Carolina.

Betty LaVette: “LaVette!”

God bless the voodoo-voiced singer Betty LaVette. Not just for her spellbinding vocal performances, but for her taste in songwriters. For her album “LaVette!,” the singer has chosen a worthy but unheralded writer: Athens, Ga.‘s own Randall Bramblett. Randall has spent five decades or so churning out album after album of sharp, grown-up rock ‘n’ roll, and LaVette digs in with confidence and gusto, taking classic rumbling Bramblett rockers, like the piercing “See Through Me” and “Hard To Be A Human,” and turning them into a smoky jazz ballad and a horn-spiked soul revue, respectively. It’s an unlikely pairing to be sure, but LaVette makes these unsung compositions her own.

U2: “Songs Of Surrender”

Roll your eyes if you must, but U2’s “Songs Of Surrender” was one of the most compelling releases of the year, simply because of the context. One of the world’s biggest bands takes some of the biggest and most beloved songs from the back catalog, songs that seem etched in stone like Zeppelin or The Beatles, and reimagines all of them — turning “One” into a sparse, piano-driven torch song, “Where The Streets Have No Name” into an icy and dark synth epic and “Beautiful Day” into a echoing pop maelstrom that’s a million miles away from its original anthemic arrangement. There’s a sentiment among some musicians that the best songs can be stripped down to just a voice and acoustic guitar. With “Songs Of Surrender,” U2 proves a good song can withstand just about anything.

If you’re catching our Best of SC Music 2023 edition, then you’ll see the records voted the top 20 out of South Carolina this past year.

But what about the albums we loved that missed the cut? Here, our writers share their picks that didn’t quite make it into the top 20 and why we think they still deserve some recognition.

Hirow, EL and Ivory Keys: “One Spliff And Three Minorities”

An EP came out in August that quickly established itself as one of the most interesting local releases from the 2023 Charleston music scene. A trio of hip-hop artists, Hirow, EL and Ivory Keys, collaborated on the EP, released under the title “One Spliff And Three Minorities,” which is also the name of the group. The EP immediately envelops the listener in its atmosphere with a dark and cinematic sound. Skeletal, low-tempo electronic beats anchor the songs’ moody twists and turns through movie-score string arrangements, muted bass lines and a generally haunted feel. The three MCs shadowbox each other throughout the song, dipping into their verses with lines like: “One too many shots I turn into Keith Urban” and “Stuck inside a house like I’m Macaulay Culkin,” which drift up out of the hazy, seductive feel of the music, turning the tired cliché of rap boasting into something funnier and more universal.

The Travelin’ Kine: “Ride”

The first two tracks on veteran Charleston sextet The Travelin’ Kine’s new album “Ride,” released in early September, will feel like home to longtime fans. These two tracks — “Again” and “Mean It This Time” — are right in the band’s wheelhouse. Singer and guitarist Slaton Glover’s rough-hewn vocals and heartfelt lyrics fit perfectly over the band’s deft mix of Americana roots music and country. The album’s producer, Josh Roberts, seems to be everywhere these days; he just finished producing and playing guitar on Columbia folk singer Danielle Howle’s new album “Current,” and he leads his own popular rock band, Josh Roberts & The Hinges. The sound Roberts and the band created on “Ride” definitely has a little more muscle than the 2016 debut album “Change In The Wind,” but these opening tracks sum up The Travelin’ Kine’s familiar easy-rolling sound.

11th Hanahan military fest celebrates veterans, offers post-service resources

BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Hundreds gathered in Hanahan on Saturday for a full-day affair dedicated to honoring the nation’s veterans.

Several community members say it is vital to prioritize our Lowcountry military before, during and after their service.

“That’s what it’s all about,” Navy Veteran Jerry Oldham says. “Right here. I’m one of you all, you’re one of us. We’re in this all together.”

After two tours in Vietnam and several years of service, Oldham now calls the Lowcountry his home.

He believes post-military resources didn’t always exist, but they are more important than ever.

“There’s more programs, opportunities, more things that look to help veterans today that weren’t there in the past.”

400,000 veterans currently live in the state out of 20 million nationwide, according to studies done by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control.

28% of them are experiencing a disability of some kind, whether physical or mental health-related.

Besides the day filled with speeches, songs, treats and trinket shopping, a handful of vendors were in attendance to support transitioning and post-service veterans.

“Whether it’s a lifelong career or just a few years, they come out different than when they went in,” City of Hanahan Mayor Christie Rainwater says. “They often need services and support.”

“Education, employment, nutrition, housing, social networking, all the different things which hug a veteran through their transition,” Palmetto Pathfinder Jean Brooks adds.

Palmetto Pathfinder is one of the many options available to veterans who need assistance.

It is a three-day mentorship program through the statewide Department of Veterans Affairs.

“A Pathfinder is a mentor for other veterans,” Brooks says. “We can speak to each other in our own language and provide resources.”

Oldham says it is heartwarming to see advocacy and celebration from the community in a time where it is becoming “less common.”

“It kind of hurts me sometimes, the things that happen today because people just don’t appreciate it.”

The City of Hanahan has been a long-time supporter with a population consisting of mostly military families.

They say they hope to continue to foster relationships and work toward making resources more accessible until the festivities start again next year.

“To those post-military, say ‘Hey, how can we support you, what are you in need of? You have served us, now we want to serve you.’”

Railroad Avenue extension connects city of Hanahan after 20 years of delays

HANAHAN — A parade of emergency response vehicles and a school bus were the first to drive a newly opened mile-long stretch of Railroad Avenue, a road project recently completed after years of work.

The extension runs from Mabeline Road to Eagle Landing Boulevard, adding a two-lane roadway along the eastern side of the existing CSX rail line, with a sidewalk along one side of the road.

Though only a mile, the new stretch connects the northwest corner of the city, where several neighborhoods and Hanahan Elementary School are, to the rest of the city, said Mayor Christie Rainwater.

Prior to the extension, drivers had to take a roundabout route and cross the railroad tracks twice.

“In order to get to the Eagle Landing ... part of the city, you actually had to leave the city, cross over the railroad tracks, go to another city (North Charleston), and then go down Rivers Avenue, cross back over the railroad tracks and get back into (Hanahan),” she said. “So obviously it was inconvenient to say the least.”

It was also completed after more than two decades of delays, which ballooned the cost from a $4 million federal earmark in the 1990s to more than $20 million by the time the county broke ground on the project in 2021.

Berkeley County’s 1 percent sales tax to pay for infrastructure contributed more than $16 million to the funding.

Officials said the delays were due to a number of bureaucratic hurdles and discussions between the county, the S.C. Department of Transportation and CSX, all of which had to review and approve various aspects of the project. Funding issues contributed as well, Rainwater said — the longer other delays took, the more expensive the project became and the more time it took to secure further funding.

Town and county officials held a ribbon cutting for the road extension on March 17, with a cohort of former mayors and other public officials in attendance such as former U.S. Rep. Henry Brown, who helped secure the initial federal earmark. Officials, local emergency responders and other attendees took to the school bus and emergency vehicles to drive through a blue ribbon and up the mile of road.
