Cold Storage

Need it cold? You’re in the right place.

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.


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 all-electric, which can save you thousands in fuel and reduce service costs as well.


We have hundreds of new and used refrigerated containers positioned around the world, which means whatever you need, we’ve got a solution. Here’s why you can trust Mountain Container for your cold-storage needs:

No matter how unique your situation or requirements, we’ve likely seen something similar before—which means we’ll be able to help you get up and running quickly.

  • Support. Whether it’s a cold room for a permanent walk-in cooler or blast freezer, or a seasonal rental, our team will manage installation and provide operational support. We offer 24-hour breakdown service as well, with technicians standing by to fix any issues and minimize losses.

  • Flexibility. We offer short-term rentals, long-term leases, or purchases (with financing options), so you can choose what works best for your business. And then there are the containers themselves: One of the big advantages for any application is that they are incredibly flexible. Because of their portability, they can be rented seasonally, easily moved to different locations on a site, or used to create a permanent cold room or walk-in. And we can provide a wide variety of options and add-ons, including ramps, lighting, remote monitoring, and more.
