What about fridges/freezers at night?

by Mari

Like everyone else I would like to thank you for the effort you put in to this section.

I took delivery of a starter trailer yesterday, very excited but not sure what happens to the fridges and freezer overnight.

They are electric and I assume I will have to transfer anything in the fridges to my house overnight as the temp would be rising too high, does this mean the environmental health will want to inspect my fridge at home?

The trailer will be stored about 2 mins from home so transferring the food won't be a problem but I am wondering if I should keep another fridge at home just for trailer food.

Hopefully the freezer will maintain its temp overnight, what do you think?

Thanks again

Thanks David, as we speak I am looking for a second hand fridge and freezer ;oD

One more question if you don't mind. We had rain here last night and it seems the ceiling which looks like either perspex or plasic buckles and leaks a little. I had already decided to have it replaced as it is badly discoloured but as it is pot riveted I am having problems finding someone to do it. Car body people say plastic people, plastic people say windscreen people and windscreen people say not them lol

I will def take before and after shots. I have a signwriter working on a plan at the moment....so exciting.

Hi Mari,

I?m very excited for you and wish you every success with your new business.

Now, regarding your question ? You are absolutely right, transfer all your food overnight back home or wherever you storage facility is located and place in fridge or a freezer overnight.

You should get your self a cool box or something similar to maintain temperature while in transit back and forth to your trailer.

Invest in a couple or fridges and a chest freezer (for home or other) to store your stock and to cut down on driving back and forth buying stock.

If you are storing stock at home in your fridges and freezers you are supposed to contact the council who will require you to register.(a pain)

Again contact your local council to confirm this as it may vary form council to council.

Again best of luck ? and if you have time send us a picture.
