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 Call Before Delivery 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 large 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. While the agents will bring the items into the location of your choice, this service does not include set-up of the items being delivered, such as installation of casters, shelves, or other accessories. Small items will not be unpackaged individually; they will be set in place and debris and packaging material will not be removed.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

I haven’t heard of R290, R600a, or R513a refrigerant before. What is it?
R290 (also known as high purity propane or CARE 40) and R600a (also known as refrigerant grade Isobutane or CARE 10) are hydrocarbon refrigerants. R513a (also known as Opteon XP10) is an HFO (hydrofluoroolefin) refrigerant. They are being used as an eco-friendly refrigerant by some manufacturers in response to the EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program. Read more about this program in our blog post on Refrigerant Regulations.
What if my Avantco cooler doesn’t seem to be getting cold enough throughout the cabinet?
Make sure that you are loading it properly, and not overloading it. This unit is designed for cans, bottles, and similar items that naturally enable good airflow within the cabinet. Overloading the cooler with cases and boxes will interrupt the airflow and negatively impact the unit’s performance.
Are there any temperature specifications to keep in mind when installing this glass door unit?
This unit has a maximum ambient temperature rating of 90 degrees Fahrenheit. However, high humidity environments may cause excessive condensation and ice accumulation in the unit and on its doors.
My Avantco cooler’s compressor doesn’t kick on until 47 degrees, what should I do?
Before contacting Avantco for warranty service, please try resetting the temperature differential using these instructions.
Can this item fit through a standard height 80" doorway?
Due to the height of this item, it may not be able to fit through a standard 80" tall doorway when standing upright. Please consider the best means of entry before purchasing, or measure your entryway to ensure that you will be able to bring your order inside if the item cannot be carried on its side.

Depending on the model you purchased, simply follow all the steps that apply to your refrigerator or freezer. If your model has a mechanical controller, adjust the temperature dial.

Changing a Lightbulb on an Avantco Merchandiser

Changing the lightbulb on your Avantco merchandiser is easier than ever thanks to this helpful tutorial! Whether you have LED or fluorescent lighting, this video shows you exactly how to change the bulb.

The lighting in any glass door merchandiser is vital to ensure your products look their best. Today we'll show you how to properly change the lighting on an Avantco GDC or GDS series merchandiser. Before doing anything else, unplug the unit. GDC or GDS units purchased in 2015 or before use bi-pin T8 fluorescent bulbs. Units purchased in 2016 and after have LED lighting. This is 20", 24", 40", or 48" long LED strip, depending on the model. We will show you how to change both types in this video. For fluorescent units, pull the top socket out horizontally from the light fixture. Pull the bottom socket out the same way, holding it firmly to keep the bulb from sliding out. Place the bulb on a level surface and remove the sockets from each end. Remove the bulb from the plastic sleeve. Place the new bulb into the sleeve and replace the sockets. Make sure the prongs in the bulb are secure in the sockets. Place the new bulb into the cabinet, starting with the bottom socket. Once again, be sure to support the bottom socket while installing to keep the bulb from sliding out. Inspect the new bulb to be sure it is secure, and turn the unit back on to ensure the light operates properly. For LED units, begin by unscrewing the collar and unplugging the light strip. Using a flat head screwdriver or other tool, apply pressure to the brackets, gently leveraging the light strips until it snaps out. Once the old light strip is free, secure the new light strip into the mounting brackets. Plug the new bulb into the socket at the top of the unit and secure it using the collar. Inspect the new bulb to be sure it is secure, and turn the unit back on to ensure the light operates properly.

    Cooler has enough room to fit several items. Easily accessible and displays products perfectly. Castor wheels make for easy moving. Nice LED lights make for easy product viewing.
    Merchandiser looks great and so far operates perfectly. The only issue is that it can be loud and hot if operating in a smaller space.
