Choosing the Right Brisbane Transport Company

When you’re hiring a refrigerated transport company in Brisbane, there are a few things you should think about to find the best company for your needs. 

Remember, the goal is to get your goods from A to B in ‘as sent’ condition. So it’s useful to do some research to find a reliable company that can ensure your goods arrive in optimum condition. 

In this blog, we’ve put together a checklist for you so that you know exactly what to look for in a refrigerated transport company. 


The online reputation of any business will help determine whether you should invest time and money in hiring them.

Check social media for any possible negative reviews as this can be quite telling of the company. While it’s important to remember that you can’t possibly keep every single person happy all the time, always try to determine the quality of their services by what the majority are saying relating to their experiences with a specific transportation company.


Always inquire about the experience of their personnel assigned to the job, whether they’re transporting food or any goods needed. The experience of the personnel involved will offer a clear idea of what to expect in the future. 


What storage capacity do you think you might need? Having too much space can be a waste of money, while cramming your goods into a tight space can damage them. This is why choosing the right sized vehicle is important. Make sure you know exactly what the company can provide and how it aligns with what you require before you hire them. 

Fleet Size

Any well-established and legitimate transportation will have an extensive range to choose from. At Cannon, we have a range of vehicles available to suit your needs. Our modern fleet is equipped with the latest in refrigeration technology. 

Temperature Range

Not all refrigeration is the same. The slightest deviation in temperature can harm the quality and shelf-life of your cargo, especially when delivering perishable items. Check the temperature you need and the monitoring system they use. 


Take the time to get multiple quotes from different refrigerated transport companies before making your decision. Keep in mind that cheapest may not be best in terms of quality, reliability or service.
