At Flex-E-Rent, we know that finding the right refrigerated vehicles for the task in hand can sometimes be frustrating for fleet operators. That's why we've put together the widest range of commercial vehicles in the UK, and why we're making it easier than ever for customers to access the specialist vehicles they need.

With a large fleet of brand new refrigerated vans and trucks, 20 Flex-E-Rent depots, 450 Rent-A-Car depots, 105 dealership locations around the country and Flex-E-Rent's unrivalled reputation for customer support and service, we're taking a fresh approach to temperature controlled vehicle rental.

We want to make refrigerated van hire as simple as possible. Here are four unique reasons why customers are choosing us:

  • Track record - With Flex-E-Rent's heritage as an independent vehicle hire company, we've got the credentials for success
  • Silent refrigeration - All our refrigerated vehicles are fitted with 'silent' refrigeration systems as standard
  • Peace of mind - Our customers benefit from dedicated 24/7 support provided by the refrigeration system manufacturers
  • Flexible hire - We offer refrigerated vehicles on same-day flexible spot rentals, Fix and Flex terms or full contract hire

Another reason to choose us is the sheer variety of vehicles we offer. The range includes everything from small car-derived vans up to 26-tonne rigid refrigerated trucks, and all the vehicles are brand new 63-plate models. Vans and trucks are available with a choice of single and multi-temperature refrigeration systems, and each vehicle is fitted with the latest Transcan temperature recording technology.

As Flex-E-Rent's Contract Hire Director, Mark Howell, recently explained, this diverse range is designed to offer customers 'the optimum choice of vehicles, covering the majority of temperature controlled applications from chill to heavy chill and deep frozen.'

He added that the silent refrigeration kits included in each vehicle as standard make them 'ideal for typically noise-sensitive urban deliveries.'

Helpful Hints

You can enjoy the peace of mind provided by access to 24-hour technical support. However, we're confident that the likelihood of a problem arising is minimal - all our vehicles are brand new and come equipped with the latest technology.

For those who are new to using temperature controlled vehicles, we've put together a few helpful hints for getting the best out of refrigerated vans and trucks:

  • Pre-chill the load space for approximately 15 minutes
  • Switch the fridge unit off while loading
  • If possible, allow space around the product for air circulation
  • Set the desired temperature on cab control
  • Close doors as soon as possible after loading 
  • Check the load temperature regularly

No matter what kind of refrigerated vehicles you need for your fleet, speak to one of our experts today to discuss your requirements. We've got the knowledge, experience and expertise to get you on the road as quickly as possible.

Trigger guide

This is an inline guide purely for the editor, it will not show in the final blog, designed the assist you with setting the options below in the 'Gate Trigger' section.

You will not be able to use the WYSIWYG editor for this it's code only so follow these instructions carefully.


Button
We cannot use a standard call to action to open the rest of the content, but we do want to track when someone clicks on the button to read the rest of the blog. Here's what the code should look like:
<a class="gate-trigger-button" href="#" id="A Fresh Approach to Temperature Controlled Vehicles - Read the rest of the post" title="Read the rest of the post">Read the rest of the post</a>


Survey
Instead of using a button, you can ask people a what their intent of being on the blog is. Here's an example.
<h3 style="text-align:center;">Ready to read the post?</h3>
<p style="text-align:center;">Great, just let us know why you're here today</p>
<ul id="survey">
<li><a href="#" id="A Fresh Approach to Temperature Controlled Vehicles">Answer One</a></li>
<li><a href="#" id="A Fresh Approach to Temperature Controlled Vehicles">Answer Two</a></li>
<li><a href="#" id="A Fresh Approach to Temperature Controlled Vehicles">Answer Three</a></li>
<li><a href="#" id="A Fresh Approach to Temperature Controlled Vehicles">Answer Four</a></li>
<li><a href="#" id="A Fresh Approach to Temperature Controlled Vehicles">Answer Five</a></li>
<li><a href="#" id="A Fresh Approach to Temperature Controlled Vehicles">Other</a></li>
</ul>

If you want to connect what the user selects in the survey with the call to action at the bottom, use the following:
<ul id="cta-list">
<li><a href="#">CTA One</a></li>
<li><a href="#">CTA Two</a></li>
<li><a href="#">CTA Three</a></li>
<li><a href="#">CTA Four</a></li>
<li><a href="#">CTA Five</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Default</a></li>
</ul>


Form
We need to add the same form for each blog, you can if you want to make your own form but you'll need to change the formId which will be in the URL for the form e.g. https://app.hubspot.com/forms/234700/648983ff-6a25-4353-9301-08f793edfcb5/edit:
<script charset="utf-8" type="text/javascript" src="//js.hsforms.net/forms/v2.js"></script>
<script>
hbspt.forms.create({
portalId: '234700',
formId: '648983ff-6a25-4353-9301-08f793edfcb5',
css: '',
onFormSubmit: function($form) {
gateTriggerForm('A Fresh Approach to Temperature Controlled Vehicles');
}
});
</script>


CTA Form
If people are clicking the CTA but then not filling in the form on the landing page they're being taken to, it may be worth loading the form on the same page to see if that helps the submission rate:
<div class="cta-form-image">
<a class="cta-form-image-button" href="#" id="CTA Click - A Fresh Approach to Temperature Controlled Vehicles"><img alt="Title of the CTA" src="https://cdn2.hubspot.net/hubfs/234700/FER_CTAs/download-your-free-guide-lcv-acquisition-hire-or-buy.png" title="Title of the CTA"></a>
</div>
<div class="cta-form-inputs">
<a href="#" class="cta-form-inputs-close"><i class="fa fa-times" aria-hidden="true"></i></a>
<script charset="utf-8" type="text/javascript" src="//js.hsforms.net/forms/v2.js"></script>
<script>
hbspt.forms.create({
portalId: '234700',
formId: '648983ff-6a25-4353-9301-08f793edfcb5',
css: '',
onFormSubmit: function($form) {
gateTriggerCTAForm('A Fresh Approach to Temperature Controlled Vehicles');
}
});
</script>
</div>
