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.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

How do I know if this unit will fit under or match the height of my ADA-Height counter?
Many manufacturers offer their refrigeration equipment in several different height options to best meet your needs. Here's a breakdown of how we classify these different heights:

Counter Height: Work surface is more than 34" high; standard height unit.

ADA Height: Work surface height is less than 34"; complies with ADA regulations.

Low Profile: Work surface height is less than 32"; designed to fit under most ADA-height counters.

If the unit you are purchasing comes with a backsplash, it may affect whether or not it will align with or fit under certain countertops. To ensure the correct fit, please reference the product's literature and specifications.
Can this unit be built into cabinetry?
It should not be built into cabinetry. This unit is rear and side breathing, and for proper ventilation it requires 3" of clearance behind it and on the sides.
How do I correctly install the shelves into this unit?
To promote proper air flow through your Avantco unit, please ensure that the wire ledges on the shelves are positioned toward the back of the unit. These ledges help keep enough space between your product and the back wall so that cold air can adequately circulate through the cabinet. Incorrectly installing the shelf ledges can restrict airflow, causing the temperature in the bottom of your unit to rise.
Why is there a step in the interior of this undercounter unit?
This unit’s refrigeration system is located in the lower rear of the cabinet, causing the step in its interior. The step may decrease the inner depth of the cabinet's lower interior versus what is listed as its overall interior depth, so please check the unit’s specs and diagrams to ensure it will accommodate your storage needs.

    fridge Easy temperature cooler counter great love needed parts clean

    This is our working fridge in our busy coffee shop. I really like that it displays the temp on the outside. It is easy to clean and fits just the right amount of things we need on a daily basis.

    from Cornerstone Coffee Posted on

    The inside capacity is tiny. This fridge can hold very little. The settings are difficult to change. I wish I had purchased a fridge with more useable space inside.

    from Abigail's Bakeshop Posted on

    Since the day I bought it mine overheats when the outside temperature exceeds 80 deg F. This was an expensive purchase and I wish I had chosen a more reliable fridge.

    from Turtle Ranch B & B Posted on

    Nice quality and feels solid door are heavy and closes tightly, I shopped around and could not justify the same product for twice the cost.

    from Seaboard Brewing Company Posted on

    We absolutely love this under counter refrigerator! We use it behind our bar to store milks, cold brew coffee, tea, etc. We use the top of the refrigerator as a prep counter, so it is a very efficient piece of equipment for our use.

    from Reverie Coffee Roasters Posted on

    Advantco has been offering a great product to WebstarauntStore. I have purchased 2 different Advantco products from them & have been happy with both. I am happy to be a customer for both of you!

    from The Cornerstone L.L.P. Posted on

    So, the fridge started out well enough but unfortunately after a year of use the compressor went out, which seems to be the story with many other people as well. They're sending me a new compressor but I have to pay for labor & any additional parts which is disappointing. 5 YEAR warranty should be a better deal. Even for a lower-end product...dropping money on one item isn't a small thing for a lot of people. Disappointed.

    from Fox Coffee House Posted on

    Blew the compressor after 1 year..at least it's covered, but not parts and labor. Avantco fridges look nice, but you do get what you pay for, as for most things. If you need to open and need an inexpensive fridge then go for it, if you want it to last then get a True or other brand.

    Thank you for reviewing this refrigerator, Vincenzo. We are very sad to hear that it has not suited you well. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you shortly to make sure the issues are taken care of.

    Would really like to love this refrigerator but the temperature is not holding. Unfortunately we rely heavily on this unit for daily usage and higher temperatures means spoiled product.

    from Dixon Coffee Company Posted on

    Thank you for reviewing this, Kayleigh. We are very sorry to hear that this has been causing problems for you. We would like to help fix this. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon to resolve the issues.

    So far so goodish. The cooler should be holding at 36, but it reads 42 when I come in the morning (after it had all night to sit and get cold). Not sure if it is a settings issue. Looking more into is.

    Posted on

    This works ok so far. Just an fyi there thing is actually 35 and a half inches. Was just a bit too high for me so I have to take off the wheels.

    from backwater Posted on

    Like standard undercounter refridgerator. Nice quality build. Handle built as one piece of stainless steel. Easy to clean. Temperature display is outside easy for inspection. Keep my stuff cool without any problem. Good price well built quality. Recommend.

    from RAWR Sushi, LLC Posted on

    it is a good fridge. my favorite part are the handles to open the doors. no way one could get stuck on them. sadly i have a problem with the temperature. on some occasions i caught the reading a 49F. so i had a repair man come by to check on it. supposedly it is fixed and jet the temp reaches 49F or even 50F. not sure what to do about that. maybe just keep our beverages cool with it.

    I have had this fridge for over 6 months now and still love it! We have had no problems at all. It is easy to keep clean. And it was a great price

    from cuppa sunshine Posted on

    we operate a coffee / bagel storeand needed a under counter refer for our expresso area this was a perfect fit for our application love it

    from the bean bar Posted on

    We purchased it in July, 2012, have had some issues that the on/off switch is on the front of the unit and staff kept bumping it, but found a way around that by putting a box over the switch. Unfortunately - one year and one month after purchase, of course - we came in one day to find the temperature at 66 degrees. Called the local repair guy who came and refilled the freon - and now we are out his bill, plus had to throw out dairy products and had lost sales today. Quite disappointing.

    from Rainbow Confections Posted on

    Thanks for your review! The new Avantco TUC48R Double Door Undercounter Refrigerator has the controller on the back, preventing the problem of it being bumped. We have contacted the manufacturer to let them know about the Freon issue. A Customer Solutions Representative will be in contact with you to see how they may help.
