  • Cold Hire (2003) Ltd has supplied the World Buskers Festival with our refrigeration requirements for the past two festivals, 2004 and 2005. Through discussion and consultation with Cold Hire we identified our needs and were provided with a competitive package on all aspects. In 2004 we made some last minute requests and were thrilled that Cold Hire was able to assist us at such short notice. Planning and delivering an event the size of the World Buskers Festival, can be pressured, I am thankful for the ease of dealing with a supplier such as Cold Hire.

  • We hire several refrigeration units from Coldhire and use them for storing expensive, temperature sensitive items. The equipment has so far proven to be very reliable and when we have had issues with their performance I have been impressed with the prompt and efficient service we have received. David Wright has always been helpful and offers us a professional level of service that helps us to run an efficient business. When dealing with refrigeration equipment it is vital to receive prompt and effective service and Coldhire have certainly provided this.
