As a florist, you’d be very familiar with the common dilemma of cold rooms not keeping flowers fresh enough for events and deliveries and ensuring their freshness lasts long enough to see well past the actual event! Here we explore how investing in a refrigerated flower truck helps flowers last the distance!

Out with the old, in with the new

Traditionally, cool rooms have been the go-to solution for maintaining flower freshness, as they usually provide a stable environment that slows down the natural wilting process. However, when moving your floral creations to special events and festivals, it’s important to understand the nuances to flower delivery, which requires a versatile and dynamic solution. 

Scully RSV’s temperature-controlled trucks are a revolutionary design for shop owners devoted to wowing their customers near and far. Versatile, reliable, and cost-savvy, our fleet is perfect for clients in food and grocery, pharmaceutical, beverages, festivals, and, of course, flora. 

What to Look for in a Refrigerated Truck

Temperature Control on the Go

One key advantage of a refrigerated truck for florists is its keen ability to maintain precise temperature control while on the move either within the vehicle or with Scully RSV’s ScullyLive, it can be controlled remotely. A temperature-controlled truck ensures your beautiful flowers stay at the optimal temperature from point A to B. 

This solution proves especially useful for florists transporting large quantities to various destinations or delivering bouquets and arrangements during extreme heat or cold weather. 

2 for 1 Design!

Refrigerated trucks serve a great dual purpose: transport and storage units. Imagine the time, money and stress you’ll save during special events and festivals, where it’s essential to keep flowers bright and fresh over extended periods.

Instead of transferring them from a stand-alone cool room to a vehicle, risking exposure to unfavourable conditions, a refrigerated flower truck allows you to manage a seamless cold chain from your shop to the event venue.

Cost-Effective and Efficient

While investing in a refrigerated truck might seem a significant expense initially, it can be more cost-effective in the long run. It can eliminate the need for multiple cool rooms and reduces the risk of flower spoilage during delivery. 

Scully RSV offers refrigerated truck hire options, allowing you to rent the vehicle only when needed, further optimising your costs.  

Enhanced Customer Satisfaction

Ultimately, the goal of any florist is to present exquisite, fresh flowers that delight customers and create lasting memories. Hiring or buying a refrigerated flower truck from Scully RSV ensures that your beloved flowers remain at their peak from your shop to the final destination. 

They not only enhance the overall quality of your service but also boost customer satisfaction, helping build a loyal client base.

Minimised Vehicle Wear

Using an unsuitable vehicle for flower deliveries can take a real toll on your engine. Unlike most trucks and vans that need to stay running to keep the air conditioning on, a truck with a specialised cooling unit can easily maintain the ideal environment without overworking the engine. In addition to this, every Scully RSV comes with an electrical standby unit to keep the fridge unit running for longer, whilst the vehicle is turned off.

This design also reduces wear and tear and saves on fuel costs.
