Chiller Hire

Body Storage and temporary mortuaries

At Andrews, we have an excellent track record supplying chiller units and temporary mortuaries to hospitals and funeral directors. With the country’s broadest selection of special body storage equipment for hire and depots located throughout the UK, our clients can always depend on us to design and implement systems suited to their specifications. Whether you require temporary conversion of existing facilities or purpose-built body storage boxes for permanent use, we will provide a solution fast.

Temporary Conversion

If your building has a room or area which isn’t being used, then converting it into a body storage facility might be a cost-effective alternative to hiring modular units. By deploying low temperature chillers in an unoccupied space, you can quickly transform it into a fully functional morgue. Our expertise in these circumstances allows us to not only evaluate your needs, but quickly act on them by providing environmentally-friendly and affordable cooling units.

Replicating the conditions of a conventional mortuary is imperative, with the preservation of stored bodies entirely dependent on cold temperatures. Our simple climate-controlled solutions countermand the requirement of more sophisticated systems like integrated storage units, yet serve their purpose just as effectively. So, in periods where demand for storage capacity is unexpectedly high, installing temporary chillers within an existing vacant room is often the best option.

At Andrews we strive to provide you with a focused response at every juncture of the hiring process, while taking steps to acknowledge the environmental implications of our actions. By perpetually investing in both equipment and staff, we are continuing improving our service while maintaining our position as market leaders.

Modular Units

During periods of overcrowding in mortuaries, hospitals and crematoria, modular body units represent an ideal substitute when storage pressures develop. We recognise the importance of maintaining the conditions required to safely keep bodies, tissues and fragments. As the UK’s leading supplier of chilled storage boxes for the last 20 years, we take pride in providing you with necessary equipment without disrupting your operations or process elsewhere.

Our aptitude in this field ensures that customers will receive clean and tested storage containers and we promise to respond quickly. With dedicated professionals adept at working efficiently in the most sensitive of environments, you can rely on us to meet your demands without impacting on other resources or amenities. We endeavour to surmount the difficulties associated with insufficient storage without resorting to expensive refrigeration and industrial apparatus.

By hiring our chilled, space-saving units you can contain more bodies should logistical requirements stipulate – and without ever needing to commit to a purchase. This solution instantly rectifies capacity problems in the short or medium term while ensuring remains are retained in a dignified manner.
