New & Used Refrigeration

Every store across the UK requires shelving that’s good quality, in good condition and importantly, reliable. Whether it be small convenience stores, large supermarkets or retail outlets, most will also require the correct type of refrigeration. 

At Shelving4Shops we understand that sometimes it can be a little frustrating to source everything you need from just from one supplier, which is why we have teamed up with a trustworthy local refrigeration company whose speciality is in both new and used commercial refrigeration. They offer a large variety of refrigeration equipment for any kind of store, such as multi deck chillers, display freezers and bottle fridges to name a few. 

Arneg refrigeration is a name you can surely trust. Their sales team are highly experienced and fully qualified fridge and air conditioning engineers, who have a vast knowledge of the industry, and will work with you throughout the process to achieve exactly what is required. 

All of the used refrigeration units are of high quality and standards. They have been thoroughly cleaned and fully tested to their capabilities. Each unit comes with a 3 month warranty, giving you the confidence and peace of mind when buying used refrigeration. Second hand refrigeration is ideal if you’re on a tight budget and are looking to save a bit of money, however we also understand that it can be tricky to find exactly what you require, especially when compromise just isn’t an option. Hence why we also offer new commercial refrigeration such as air conditioning, display freezers, dairy cabinets, multi deck chillers and bottle fridges just to name a few. 

There are many important factors to consider when buying refrigeration for the first time, and all of these factors can be discussed with an experienced member of staff who will be happy to help with any enquiries.

Large Store Shelving

Shelving isn’t just about displaying and holding products. It’s about making the most out of what space and merchandise are available and help establish a good customer reputation and shopping experience. 

Large stores can be quite daunting for customers to shop/browse in. Sometimes the customer simply has no idea where to start, so it’s important to make sure it’s as easy as possible for them to navigate through. This helps provide a more efficient shopping experience for the customer, and helps provide you with a positive customer reputation. 

However we understand that sometimes it can be difficult to make such a large space look full and complete. Spare spaces and empty looking shelves don’t quite give off the ideal impression towards customers. It can make the store appear as if it’s unmanned, or as if it's going out of business. It also makes shopping more difficult for customers to find what they’re looking for. 

Large amounts of stock tend to come with large stores, so it can be tempting to just dump as much stock as possible to fill up an empty void. Many people don’t bother using such a large space to its best capabilities. They tend to just see a generous amount of space and fill it up with as much stock as they possibly can with no strategy behind it whatsoever. This isn’t in the best interests of the store, or for the customer in that matter. Displaying as much stock as possible isn’t the best tactic, it can look messy, dishevelled and can actually counteract sales altogether as it’s harder for the customer to shop and navigate through. 

Shelving units that are deep allow you to have displays that are full with merchandise, giving off the impression of a well established company and business. Of course, it entirely depends on how much stock and merchandise you have in the first place. If you have large amounts of stock it can be easy to fill up the shelving units, however when you have low amounts of stock, it’s best to make the most out of what you have. 

Gondolas are useful for creating aisles, which fit perfectly within large store spaces. Sometimes large store spaces can appear to be baffling, and can sometimes dishearten customers from shopping. Customers don’t want to have to make an effort to shop, they want to be navigated and directed through to what they want. Aisles are a great way of ensuring easy navigation and encourage customer traffic flow.

Convenience Store Shelving

We understand that you want to make the most out of what space you have, especially when there isn’t a lot of it. Even if you have a small store, there’s still pressure to make space and fit large amounts of stock out on display. 

Some customers tend to prefer smaller stores to larger ones. It usually has all the basics they need, they don’t feel daunted or lost and they usually allow for easy navigation. However, usually smaller stores only have a small amount of storage space, so it can be tempting to just put out as much stock as you possibly can so you can free up extra storage space in the warehouse. It can then be difficult to find a perfect balance, and to not make the store look too packed and crowded. Customers can end up feeling cramped and confined if there’s too much stock squashed in such a small amount of space. In situations like this, customers can even end up feeling claustrophobic. This definitely isn’t the feeling or impression you want to give to customers, it will deter them from your store entirely.

It’s all about displaying the products on a shelf effectively to find the right balance between the amount of product and space you have available. Deep set shelves allow for large amounts of products to be stored in the same section without being too confined and cramped.

It’s all about making the most out of what space you have available when it comes to smaller spaces. Which is why corner units are also ideal for smaller stores. Instead of stacking products on the floor to fill up a corner, corner units make a great addition to smaller spaces and allow you to display merchandise more effectively.
