LATEST TREND ”RENEW” OR “COMBO” REEFER TRAILERS

A NEW REEFER UNIT ON A USED TRAILER – THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.

You thought you had two choices when buying a reefer trailer: new or used. Not any more. Now there’s a third option…a “Renew Reefer” offering buyers a chance to have their cake and eat it too.

New 2018 Reefer Units can be put on any used Wabash or Utility trailer.
New 2018 Reefer Units can be put on any used Wabash or Utility trailer.
Here are the questions we are asked most…

It is a used reefer trailer with a a brand new reefer unit put on it. For example, putting a new 2018 Carrier or Thermo King reefer unit on a 5-year old reefer trailer “box”. These new units are installed by factory certified technicians and come with a full warranty, just like buying a brand new reefer trailer.

Putting a new reefer unit on a used trailer gives you the advantages of a new reefer (efficiency, reliability, years of service) but saves the buyer roughly $30,000 off the cost of and all new trailer. The only difference is the reefer box itself. At that savings, it is easily possible to buy 3 Renew Reefers for the price of 2 all new reefers!

The condition of the reefer box is excellent on a Renew Reefer, because it has to match the life span of the new reefer unit. The reefer box will be patch free and in excellent condition. Refrigerated trailer boxes only lose about 3% of their insulated value per year, so 3-5 year old trailers are still highly efficient.

Either. Most buyers are choosing the 2018 Carrier 7500 or Thermo King C600 unit. The Carrier reefer unit is often $4-6,000 less expensive than the comparable Thermo King unit.
