Dismantling and Relocation Services for Coolrooms and Freezers

13 November 2015

Businesses prosper and expand, or maybe the owner simply makes a calculated decision to pick up and relocate to a new district, one that has a diverse clientele. And why not, when the practise is so straightforward? The operation packs its belongings and seamlessly swings back into motion in the new location. Of course, in the case of a restaurant or commercial food supplier, things take on a more complicated outlook, especially when it comes to handling that heavy-duty freezer sitting at the back of the kitchen. But don’t worry, there are specialist services in place to handle this eventuality.

Dismantling Coolrooms and Freezers Takes Technician Know-how

The good news is that most modern walk-in units are built with relocation in mind. They lock together as panels, and this building block pattern can easily be reversed. Dismantling and relocation services are still a necessary part of the operation, though, with the trained eye of a technician inspecting each panel for damage. A water damaged panel obviously shouldn’t be included in the relocation segment of the task, as it represents a weak link in the cooling chain. Any damaged panels should be replaced. Then there’s the compressor unit and the auxiliary electrical fixtures within the chamber, components that require attention from an engineer who has experience in mechanical and electrical principles. The engineer has to isolate this equipment from its electrical supply, detach the compressor from its housing, and make the disassembled parts safe to handle. But, all things being equal, a contemporary series of coolrooms and freezers should dismantle as easily as they were first assembled.

Preparing for Relocation Work

Thus far all of the focus has gone into the dismantling stage, but there’s work to be done at the new location before we pack the insulating panels, door seals, and auxiliary parts of the coolrooms and freezers into a transport. Is there enough space at the new kitchen? Is the electricity supply ready and up to the task of handling the compressor unit? A coolroom, naturally enough, consumes less energy than a walk-in freezer. Also, the walk-in freezer generates ice, meaning more drainage is needed when or if the need for a defrost cycle occurs. Effective dismantling and relocation services account for these issues before a single tool is employed.

A modular metal-clad series of panels quickly submits to an expert team, one that knows all the ins-and-outs of dismantling and relocation services. On the other hand, older installations require more consideration, thus representing a task that will partner with an expertly compiled relocation strategy, work that will take time and planning. In both eventualities, always place a second spotlight on the new location, on power supply needs, space, and new drainage channels, especially if the relocated unit is a wak-in freezer.
