DMC trailers on long-term rental to Rick Bestwick

The trailer rental firm has specifed equipment from Carrier Transicold for the last six years, along with fixed-cost maintenance contracts with every Vector1550 or 1850 refrigeration unit in its fleet. Among the most recent deliveries to DMC Trailer Rentals are 20 Montracon trailers with Vector 1550 single-temperature refrigeration units, following the supply of 10 identical trailers to the company in 2011. The units are on long-term rental to cold storage and transport company, Rick Bestwick.

Kevin Cook, managing director, DMC, says that he favours three-year Golden Cold maintenance agreements on all new trailers, which he typically extends by two or three years subject to customer demand. The oldest assets are replaced every six years to ensure a modern and reliable fleet.

“Carrier Transicold’s Golden Cold agreements make running such a large fleet of reefers hassle-free for DMC and our customers. We are able to keep our cost base to a minimum, which in turn allows us to remain competitive,” Cook says.
DMC Trailer Rentals operates more than 500 trailers on long-term hire and plans to exceed 600 units within a year.
