What Our Customers Are Saying
"Rented from Cool Vans this past weekend for a catering operation at a large music festival. We received our vehicle cleaned top to bottom, inside and outside. The cab even smelled like berries!Â The vehicles are the traditional white cargo vans. You lose a few inches of space from the floor, walls and roof but that's obviously for insulation. The interior appeared to be stainless steel and with those bumps to keep items from sliding around.
Runs off the van engine while commuting and they provide you with a power cord that will connect to any basic 15/20 amp connection. The temperature control is in the cab of the van.Â Although it's obviously not a "walk in", but it's like having a mini walk in fridge with you on site. Pack wisely based on your needs but they have the side doors as well."
