Can you convert a refrigerated van retrospectively?

The question many customers who get in touch with us ask is “Can you convert a refrigerated van retrospectively?” They may already own their vehicle or fleet of vehicles. So they could be looking to use what they already own; but want to upgrade their business and start delivering, using a temperature controlled vehicle. And the answer we give them is always a “YES!”

We may be supplied the vehicles brand new to convert. However we also work with many second hand vehicles; where someone is just starting out and has bought a van, or perhaps a few vans, that they need to convert. The options are endless and we have the knowledge to give you the best possible outcome for your business.

There isn’t anything we don’t know about temperature controlled van conversions. Whether you want to supply your product in an ambient form, chilled or even frozen, we can chat with you and advise as to what system you need and what extra fixtures and fittings we can supply, to ensure you have everything in your vehicles that you need.

Different Industries

Every industry is different as well. If you are an art dealer, you may be wanting racking to keep your artwork secure whilst in transit. Art has to be kept at a certain temperature to avoid damage and we work with many galleries who require temperature controlled transport for their collections.

Or perhaps you deliver pharmaceuticals or hazardous materials. It is imperative that you ensure your products are both kept to the correct temperature but also extremely secure whilst being transported.

Caterers also require different temperatures for food transportation, as well as safe storage for travel. As do fishmongers and also butchers.

Every type of industry is different and we always love a challenge – so just tell us what you need and we will do everything we can to help you with your refrigerated vehicle. From lighting to flooring, to colour co-ordinating and also for reversing cameras or parking sensors and much more. Take a look at what fixtures and fittings you can have in your bespoke van conversion.

Darren Sutton

I don't normally give people 5 stars however we have now had 4 vans converted to freezer vans this year, the pandemic meant we needed the vans asap and REX delivered.
Darren gave advice freely, converted the vans within the time quoted and at a very competitive price.
