Audrey's Auto Blog

Hello! Welcome to my blog. My name is Audrey and today, I would like to invite you all to learn about the wonders of the automobile. I first became interested in the auto mobile after the death of my husband. Until that point, I had no interest in cars at all. My husband did all the driving and I simply had to turn up on time and climb into the back. However, a few days after the funeral, I walked into our garage and I decided that I would learn how to drive and how to maintain an automobile. Our mechanic has been very good at teaching me a few things and giving me some top advice.

How To Choose A Refrigerated Delivery Service

Tracy Arnold

Are you looking for refrigerated delivery services? Could be you need to transport meats or fresh fruits to your customers. Below is a guide detailing the considerations you should make when choosing a refrigerated delivery service. 

Assess The Company Reputation

Assess how previous customers rate the company's services. Therefore, interview the company's clients, check social media and go over website reviews to know the quality of services provided by the company. For instance, you would want to know whether the company observes client deadlines or whether products arrive undamaged when being transported. Inquire about the company's customer care policies. For example, how fast do they resolve disputes? Does the company compensate clients for lost or spoilt products? This assessment will help you identify the best companies to work with. 

Examine The Company's Specialisation and Capability

If possible, you should work with a company that transports similar products. It guarantees that their employees understand how to prepare the products for transport, how to handle the products, and the desired temperature ranges during transport. Inquire about the company's capabilities. For instance, what is the maximum load they can carry? Does the company operate countrywide, or do they have specific routes? It is an essential consideration if you need interstate refrigerated delivery services. 

Check The Method Of Transport

How will the company transport your products? Visit their premises to assess their delivery vehicles. Look out for the following: 

  • What is the mechanical condition of the vehicles? Poorly-maintained vehicles might break down before reaching the destination.
  • What is the vehicle model? For long-distance delivery, you want models that can handle long trips.
  • Assess the refrigeration unit. For example, can it cool your products to the desired temperatures? Can you monitor the temperatures remotely?
  • If you expect the delivery vehicle to make regular stops, the refrigeration unit should have an independent power source to keep your products cool when the engine is off.
  • The refrigerated trailer or van should be insulated. Additionally, it should not have damages such as cracks that could let in dust and pests. 

Negotiate The Terms Of Service

Reputable companies will allow you to negotiate their terms of service. For example, you could want cold storage services at the destination. Alternatively, you could need the company to deliver the products to your clients' doorsteps. Consider companies that give guarantees. It is a surety that they are confident in the services that they offer. 

When choosing a refrigerated delivery service, assess the company's reputation, specialisation, capability, delivery vehicles and service terms.
