Cold Storage



Businesses around the world use shipping containers for cold storage either on a seasonal or permanent basis—for example, a retailer that requires additional capacity for holiday turkeys, agricultural operations that need to keep perishables fresh before transport, or food-service companies who want reliable backup systems. Of course, those are only a few of the applications and industries for cold storage. Serving Alaska, Hawaii, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and based here in Tacoma, we offer refrigerated storage containers that are durable and convenient.

Containers are waterproof and rodent-proof, protecting your important goods from both the elements and unwanted intruders that can cause significant damage to products. And the potential savings of using a container versus building a traditional structure can be significant: Our units are food-grade, stainless steel interior, and all-electric, which can save you thousands in fuel and reduce service costs as well. Whether it's frozen or fresh, we can help hold the tempuratures you need from -30F up to 70F. To discuss the cold and refrigerated storage container options in the Tacoma area don’t hesitate to call us at Mountain Container.

We have hundreds of new and used refrigerated containers in Tacoma and around the world, which means whatever you need, we’ve got a solution.
