5 Tips For EMERGENCIES
A fridge trailer unit is an important piece of equipment for lots of different businesses, especially those companies working in the food and beverage industries. When a cold trailer breaks down, it can be a massive inconvenience to business and can ultimately lead to damaged products and lost revenue for your company. It’s so important that you know what to do in a situation like this.
Within this post, we outline the best actions you can take to prevent minimal impact to your business.
Understand The Situation You’re Facing
The first thing you should do when a fridge trailer breaks is to assess the situation you’re facing. Understand the full extent of the damage, whether the fridge trailer is repairable, and if so, think about how long it will take to repair, and how much the potential downtime could cost your business. Also, check the products in your fridge to determine if any of the items are at risk of spoiling.
If any items in the fridge trailer are at risk of being ruined, take immediate action to preserve them. This might include transferring them to another unit or taking them off-site to a commercial refrigeration facility.
Call A Repair Company For Help
We recommend contacting an experienced repair company as soon as possible, so they can assess the damage and provide a quote for the repair work needed. When you look for a repair service, make sure to look for one with experience in repairing fridge trailers and that they have a good reputation for quality service.
Should You Replace With A Rental Unit?
If the repair is likely to be timely, consider hiring a temporary replacement to keep your company running smoothly. This is important if you rely heavily on refrigeration for your day to day business operations, such as in the food and beverage industries.
Check You Have A Maintenance Plan
The last thing to consider is to take the time to fully review the refrigeration maintenance plan you have in place. It’s worth considering if you need to schedule more frequent maintenance checks in or time to think about new equipment that you may need in order to prevent future breakdowns.
More often than not you’ll be ok, but when a cold unit does breakdown, it’s essential to act fast to prevent any financial loss. You need to assess the situation you’re facing, and take action fast, should you fix it? Or would calling a specialist company be a smarter move?
We recommend to all customers that count on these units for their livelihood to have a maintenance plan in place to prevent future breakdowns that may happen unexpectedly.
