Horse Racing Season & Sporting Events

With Cheltenham’s infamous horse racing festival starting this week we thought we would touch on how we support the horse racing season as well as other sporting events, large and small, across the UK throughout the year.

We often get asked to supply into racecourses across the UK such as Aintree, Ascot, Chepstow and indeed Cheltenham. We can offer peace of mind to suppliers of food and drink as our reliable machinery ensures the produce stays at optimum temperatures throughout the day which makes the operation run smoothly.

Due to our extensive experience, we are likely to know exactly where the site requires any cold stores. We can liaise with key contacts on-site to ensure the correct power requirements are set up, so when we send our own commissioning engineer we know everything is as it should be for the client.

During short events of 3-5 days, it is imperative that everything runs smoothly as there is no margin for error. Spectators attend in their droves from the moment the festivals start and the days are sold out until the very last hour, so we know the pressure on the suppliers within the grounds is huge. We are experts at offering an ideal solution to external storage and thoroughly enjoy taking some of that pressure from those suppliers.

Alongside horse racing, we also supply to many other large scale sporting events such as Wimbledon. Wimbledon is regarded as one of the biggest sporting events on the calendar and there is a huge amount of planning which goes into it each year.

We will attend the site months before the event to survey the site, agree on access points and liaise with the operations staff to advise the best and safest way to get the containers on site. There is often an element of skating the containers underground and into place which takes great skill from our haulage partners and detailed planning. Once the containers are on site and the tennis starts we can then enjoy seeing the strawberries and champagne in the hands of spectators which have been chilled in our units!

Seven supplies Temperature Controlled Storage solutions throughout the UK. Whether they are to be positioned outside or by skating them inside warehouses or barns, space permitting of course.

Seven can supply 20ft or 40ft Cold Storage Container solutions on a short or long term hire basis. Delivered directly to your site to support your operation and increase your storage capacity. We can offer flexible hire terms dependent on your requirements.
