Frequently Asked Questions About Reefer Trucks

What is a reefer truck?

Also known as refrigerated trucks, these are Class 4-6 trucks with GVW of 14,001 to 26,000 pounds. We carry refrigerated van body lengths ranging from 16 to 28 feet long. Our truck boxes are sourced primarily from Intercontinental Truck Bodies, Multivans and Grainmaster Manufacturing. We use a combination of Carrier and Thermoking refrigeration units. We offer dock level medium duty trucks as well as low pro ground level units. Most of our dock level units come equipped with power tailgates from Waltco Lift Gates. We also offer units with pull out ramps. Various door types, including swing or roll-up doors, are available to meet your application.

Maxim Truck & Trailer’s refrigerated medium duty trucks include 3-ton and 5-ton models. These units are ideal for hauling perishables, with refrigerated boxes that range from 16 feet to 28 feet long. Maxim sells both new and used refrigerated and freezer box trucks, but we also have leasing and rental options available.

Most of our models are automatics with hydraulic brakes making them easy to drive without any special licenses.

How much do reefer trucks cost?

On average, new reefer trucks cost over $150,000. 

What refrigerated truck brands do you sell?

When it comes to new refrigerated trucks, we sell International trucks. However, for used reefer trucks, we sometimes carry Volvo, Kenworth, Freightliner, Mack, WesternStar, and Peterbilt reefer trucks (just to name a few).

Most of our medium duty reefer trucks have Allison 6-speed automatic transmissions with hydraulic brakes – making them easy to drive without any special licenses. We do also carry medium duty trucks with air brakes for those jurisdictions in Canada that require air brakes on 5-ton trucks. Our medium duty chassis include single cab with bench or bucket seats, extended cab and double cab models. We offer single axle and tandem axle configurations. Engines include Cummins B6.7, Cummins ISB, Cummins L9, International 6.6L and International DT466 with horsepower ranging from 260 to 370.
