“Our goal was to raise our brand awareness nationally, we knew we needed to be in a lot more stores and be much more visible to the consumer, to achieve this.

Having gone out to the market for a solution that would work for us, Cross Rental Services – Refrigeration & Catering offered us the easiest and best solution available. They offered us both short- and long-term rental options with national distribution. They took care of the unit branding and POS on the spider fridges. They made sure that all the promotional branded fridges were delivered to all the stores nationally in time for the campaign kick-off. We also had peace of mind as their team took care of all the branding, logistics, maintenance and servicing – we literally just had to stock the fridges!

In every encounter with Cross Rental Services, we have found them to be extremely helpful, friendly and professional. They provided clarity and assurances throughout the process – no task was too big or too small.

Our campaign was extremely successful and we were delighted with the results, and increase in sales from having branded grab-and-go spider fridges front and centre in leading retail outlets throughout Ireland. Cross Rental Services – Refrigeration & Catering were instrumental in helping us achieve this outcome.”
