Non-operating Refrigerated Containers

When Royal Wolf refrigerated shipping containers become non-operational as cool-room or freezer solutions, we repurpose them as non-operating refrigerated containers.

With 100mm of insulation, a stainless steel interior and a fluted aluminium floor, Non Operating Refrigerated Containers are extremely strong and durable.  They are an excellent safe and secure storage solution for anything that requires storage in a moderately temperature controlled environment as the insulation will maintain a cooler and more consistent temperature.

Store your documents, furniture or wine in a non-operating refrigerated containers for greater protection from the elements and less exposure to heat.

Delivery Instructions


The tilt tray truck is ideal for delivery to many locations. The container is loaded on the truck in the direction requested ensuring the unit will be in the correct position once delivered. The truck must reverse to the delivery point where the tray of the truck tilts to the ground and the container slides off the back.

  • 6m Tilt Tray Clearance Requirements:
  • Height – 4.8m (16ft)
  • Width – 3m (10ft)
  • Length – 18m (59ft)


The side loader truck delivers the container by picking it up from the trucks tray at each end of the unit and lowering it onto the site directly next to the trucks’ tray. This method is ideal for delivery of containers that need to fit into constricted spaces. It is important to consider which way the container should be loaded onto the truck as it can only be unloaded from the right hand (drivers’) side.

  • 6m Side Loader Clearance Requirements:
  • Height – 4.5m (15ft)
  • Width – 6m (20ft)
  • Length – 10m (33ft)
  • 12m Side Loader Clearance Requirements:
  • Height – 4.5m (15ft)
  • Width – 6m (20ft)
  • Length – 16m (53ft)


This delivery method is used when neither a tilt tray or side loader truck can access the site. Crane truck delivery allows for containers to be delivered over obstructions such as fences.
