3 Tips to Protect Shipping Containers Against Frost Damage

As winter is now upon us, frost is inevitable and there are steps you need to take to ensure that your shipping containers are protected through the winter.

This is especially true for those who are hiring containers as your source company may well add additional damage charges at the end of the hire agreement.

Just a few simple steps can protect you from unwanted additional costs and your shipping containers from winter / frost damage.

  • Please ensure that heaters are left on a low setting at all times.
  • All water pipes in Kitchen/Canteen units should be insulated against frost and water should be drained and switched off when not in use.
  • It is a good idea to put a small amount of grease or oil on the door locks, padlocks and any other moving part to help stop the mechanism freezing up.
