What Makes Myrtle Beach Refrigerated Trailer Different?

Unlike some refrigerated trailer rental companies, we incorporate friendly, helpful customer service into every transaction we complete. That way, our clients know that they're in good hands every time they call our office and have peace of mind that their business won't suffer due to lack of communication.

We also make it a point to be flexible for our customers and strive to go the extra mile for them to make their jobs and lives easier. Need power cords to hook up your ice truck for rent in Myrtle Beach? No problem, we can make that happen. Need to pick up one of our refrigerated trailer rentals yourself so you can deliver your own goods? We'd be happy to make arrangements so you can do so. Worried about the overnight security of your temperature-sensitive items? We're delighted to provide a padlock for extra security.

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 Myrtle Beach 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 Myrtle Beach.

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 Myrtle Beach 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.

Myrtle Beach 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 Myrtle Beach

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 Myrtle Beach, SC
 Remote Refrigerated Storage Myrtle Beach, 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 Myrtle Beach 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 Myrtle Beach, 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.

Myrtle Beach Refrigerated Trailer Pro Tip

 Refrigerated Transportation Myrtle Beach, 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.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WPDE) — The Esports industry is becoming more and more popular, so much so that a two-day tournament was held right here in the Grand Strand for a second year in a row.

Sunday was the second and final day of the Boost at the Beach Esports competition at Broadway at the Beach.

SUGGESTED: North Carolina launches online sports betting ahead of March Madness

Those involved in the tournament said not only is the activity beneficial to students, but it also brings more tourism to the area.

“These are the ways we’re getting students connected with careers, these are the ways we’re helping students find community. Our program has a fitness and nutrition program. It’s just not that stigma of you’re in a dark room playing alone playing video games. All of our players, we practice, play, compete together- side by side," said Christopher Bilski, Director of Esports at Michigan State University.

Esports is a billion-dollar industry that's growing across the nation.

Some universities now offer the topic as a major or minor for students to study.

“The more people learn about Esports, the more they understand and the more they become advocates for it," Bilski said.

The event was hosted by Shenandoah and Syracuse Universities and 12 colleges competed against each other playing a game called Rocket League.

Dozens of students tried to level up to win a $5,000 prize pool.

“While they may not be traditionally what we see as being skillful, that everyday life and bringing them together to have that opportunity as an outlet and a place where they can find friendship and bonding over something that a lot of times was traditional sports. This is the next outlet," said Don Rockey, Chair of Recreation and Sports Management at Coastal Carolina University.

Esports directors at the competition said students who are involved with Esports are getting hands-on experience while also gaining skills that will help them when they graduate and enter the real world.

“Experiential learning is a big part of what we do which is why we have a focus on running events and having our students involved and working with people in the industry at actual venues. People they would actually work with in the real world," said Alyssa Duran, Interim Esports Director at Shenandoah University.

Duran said being surrounded by a community of people with similar interests while also creating connections is one benefit of the activity.

“It’s similar to being involved in any extracurricular. You are learning how to be around and communicate with people that are different than you," she said.

However, she said the best part of Esports is that it's accessible for everyone and anyone.

“You’re learning skills like teamwork and goal setting and conflict resolution. You’re learning these base skills that you do being involved with any sports team. I just think you’re hitting a demographic of students that might not be a part of a sports team because Esports is very accessible. Anyone can be involved, there’s a lot of ways to adapt," Duran said.

She said you don't have to be a certain height or have a certain athletic build to be part of the Esports community and anyone can try it.

The event also features a Smash Bros tournament for high schoolers from Horry County Schools competing for a $1,000 prize.

Duran said she hopes to see more ages, specifically younger students, become more involved in the extracurricular activity.

“They’re growing up and they’re gaming, they’re gaming with their families. Esports is very popular at the collegiate level, but it’s trickling down. We’re seeing it a lot more often at the high school level. We’re now even seeing it at middle schools. I would love to see this pipeline of youth starting at elementary or middle school, and you’re learning how to be a competitor on an Esports team, as you would any other sports team," she said.

The winner of this weekend's competition will be announced Sunday night.

Coastal Carolina University doesn't have a participating team, but they helped organize the event.

Rockey said they launched a class called Business of Esports during last year's fall semester, and it was very well received by students.

“It’s accepted because it caters to a whole lot of different students. Not only mainstream students but also those students who may feel like they don’t fit in anywhere and this gives them an opportunity to find their niche and to find the happiness that keeps them going through school. Sometimes that’s very hard," he said.

Reality Check is a new Sun News series holding those in power accountable, shining a light on local issues, and answering readers’ essential questions. Have a question or concern we can answer? Email online@thesunnews.com.

Social media speculation surrounding a Surfside Beach, SC store recently has caused some to wonder if a new discount retail business will take its place.

A Facebook user posted March 1, 2024, claiming that Old Time Pottery at 1870 Highway 17 North would be replaced by Gabe’s, an off-price retail and clothing outlet founded in West Virginia. Gabe’s acquired Old Time Pottery in April 2023; the initial Facebook user’s post referenced this sale.

Indeed, Surfside Beach’s Old Time Pottery recently had an everything-is-on-sale event, where the entire store was 10-40 percent discounted.

However, Old Town Pottery Manager Dave O’Hagan said the store is not closing, but it is getting rid of old inventory and making way for new merchandise. While O’Hagan confirmed the store is not closing, he declined to answer when asked if Old Time Pottery is converting to a Gabe’s. Instead, O’Hagan directed The Sun News to contact Gabe’s media team.

Gabe’s Media Contact, Leigh Guldig, could not be reached for comment before publication. While the Surfside Beach Old Time Pottery’s status is unknown, other stores across the country were replaced by Gabe’s. The Springfield Business Journal reported in February 2024 that Springfield, Mo.’s Old Time Pottery was getting replaced by a new Gabe’s
