Commissioning the container at your premises – Container Delivery

Upon placing your refrigerated container hire or sale order with Containers 4 Sale UK Ltd, we will arrange a suitable delivery date. After taking delivery (refer to our delivery guidelines for full delivery information), one of our engineers will attend your premises to commission the container. – For additional information, please see the details below.

The customers responsibility and what we do

The customer is responsible to ensure a correct 3-phase power with an independent 5-pin socket is supplied before we attend. Upon taking delivery of your container and ensuring it is positioned on level ground we will arrange for a commissioning engineer to attend to your premises, this may be the same day as delivery or in some instances the following day.

Customers are advised to ensure all corresponding operatives are present when the engineer arrives for a full understanding of the way the machinery operates, correct stowage, and how to maintain the unit.

The engineer will plug in the container, set your required temperature, and give operational guidance, and advice on how to look after your container. If you have hired the container, once you have signed our commissioning notes, you are eligible for our call-out service on the machinery section, provided you operate it, by following our commissioning terms & conditions.

If you have purchased this container, signing our commissioning notes will activate any warranty as per the formal quotation given.

On-site commissioning consists of:

  • The final check is that you have adequate and safe power to operate the container (this can only be checked from the socket – i.e. not back to your electrical board – that aspect is the customer’s responsibility).
  • Plugging the container cable into your socket.
  • Setting in your required temperature.
  • Instructions on how to load (i.e.) ensure airflow is available.
  • Full walkthrough of user guidelines and usage.
  • Instructions on keeping the container ice-free.

Our engineer will leave your site upon customer satisfaction and the signed paperwork is completed. Thereafter customers hiring our containers are covered by our 24-hour emergency breakdown service provided the container is operated correctly and to our guidelines.

After commissioning

Before you load your container, ensure it has achieved your required temperature, and you are confident to load. Our containers are designed as holding units only, they are not blast freezers and you should never attempt to operate these in this way as you may be liable for damages.

They are designed to store products/cargo at approximately the same temperature the cargo is loaded at (i.e.) set the temperature on the container at -20 then you must load at -18 to -20.

You are responsible for checking the container at least 3 times per day or more frequently if your internal policies require it. A minimum allowance of 5ft in space is essential at the external machinery end to ensure correct airflow and access for our engineer. You must keep the container clean internally and externally.

Internal lighting is classed as a consumable, therefore if the lights are working upon commissioning thereafter replacement tubes are the customer’s liability.

The customer is responsible for ensuring the container at full replacement value and its contents, against any loss of contents or third-party claims relating to the use of these containers as Containers 4 Sale UK Ltd accepts no responsibility for any loss or consequential loss whatsoever or howsoever, caused by failure of monitoring the container or genuine machinery faults.
