What is White Glove service?

Standard common carrier delivery options cover the cost of getting an item to your shipping address but our White Glove delivery service does that and more!

The White Glove agent will call to schedule a delivery appointment within a four hour window, which gives you the flexibility to work around your busy schedule and to prepare the space where your item will be placed. Upon delivery, trained professionals will unload your item from the truck, bring it into the room of choice, unpack the item and remove all packaging debris from the premises.

Please note that White Glove delivery will typically add 5 - 7 business days to your order's transit, and only includes 30 minutes of on-site time. If on-site time beyond 30 minutes is required, you may be responsible for additional fees. Additionally, this service does not include set-up of the items being delivered.

Lighted Interior and Exterior

You might not need or be able to install a full-size merchandiser refrigerator, but that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice on features. This model comes with all of the things you would expect to find in a larger unit, including a lighted 15" x 7 1/8" area to put your own custom graphics, and interior lighting to illuminate your products.

Self-Closing Door

A single glass door allows customers to see the contents of your merchandiser at a glance, and the door is self-closing so that you never have to worry about staff or customers accidentally leaving it open. A built-in lock helps prevent theft.

1.5 Cu. Ft. Interior

The 1.5 cu. ft. interior on this unit is the perfect size for offering a small selection of bottled beverages and prepackaged snacks. It comes with 3 shelves, which can be adjusted to meet the needs of changing inventory.

Black, Insulated Frame

This merchandiser boasts a rust-proof black exterior to provide a sleek look, while foamed-in-place polyurethane cell insulation helps maintain interior temperatures. The door is also insulated to aid with temperature retention.

1/10 hp Refrigeration System

The top-mounted 1/10 hp refrigeration system circulates R-134a refrigerant and helps this merchandiser to maintain temperatures between 35 and 45 degrees Fahrenheit.

    temp cooler better box cool freezes hold service evaporator door

    I purcbased this countertop fridge to hold items such as fruit salad, yogurt, to go desserts, etc! It works pretty goos, the cooler mode freezes the box though so i always keep it on 3

    from Waverly Deli Posted on

    Perfect for keeping food cool while vending at market. Heavy but not impossible to pick up. See through door makes it much better for the consumer eye.

    from Natural Contents Posted on

    This unit does not hold temp out of the box. I have tried incrementally lowering temp, but all that seems to happen is the evaporator core freezes and does not cool properly. I have it set to the lowest temp right now and it sits around 50 deg F. I recommend moving on to something a little better in quality.
