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.

These merchandisers are made 53 inches wide with 45 cubic feet of interior space to accommodate large quantities of your most popular products and help drive impulse purchases. Avantco sliding door merchandisers are equipped with ½ hp compressors that circulate R-134A refrigerant to keep food in the safe storage zone between 32 and 41 degrees Fahrenheit. In addition, a top mounted cooling fan and full body insulation help keep the refrigeration system from being overworked by retaining cold air. And with its convenient mechanical controls and digital display, making a quick adjustment to your fridge takes only seconds. Avantco sliding door merchandisers come with self-closing, anti-fog doors to give customers a clear view of all your product at all times. They also have eight interior shelves that can each hold 90 lbs. to accommodate large quantities of stock at a time.

The Avantco GDS47 white merchandising refrigerator is the perfect way to merchandise all your hottest selling cold products, from bottled drinks to grab and go items, and more! First and foremost, this unit boasts a sleek white finish and a lighted top graphics area to draw in customers, and since the housing is made from painted steel you can be sure that it will provide superior durability. Additionally, it boasts 2 anti-fogging glass sliding doors to provide easy access and ensure that customers always have a clear view of your products, while its wide design and (8) plastic coated steel shelves help you stay organized and adjust easily to cope with changing inventory and changing menus. Interior lighting between the doors also works to illuminate and further merchandise your products.

The merchandiser's utility also extends to its refrigeration system, by drawing in air from the coolest part of the kitchen, near the floor. This design also increases the height of the bottom shelf so you bend over less during loading and unloading. A top mounted cooling fan ensures proper circulation of cool air and keeps temperatures even inside the refrigerator, while foamed in place polyurethane insulation improves temperature retention inside the cabinet and reduces the work on your compressor. Other helpful features include a self-closing mechanism on the doors, automatic defrosting, and a temperature control with digital display.
