One of the most common mistakes when searching for the right Walk-In is not considering the available Quick Ship options.
Quick Ship Walk-In Coolers and Freezers are an economical and efficient choice for your refrigerated Walk-In needs. Unlike custom units, their panels are standardized and able to be shipped in just a few days. Because of this, not only is the lead time drastically reduced, but the cost is typically below the price of custom alternatives. While Quick Ships have many benefits, they are not perfect for everyone. Here’s what you need to know:
Quick Ships Are Faster
Walk-In Quick Ship panels are pre-designed for optimal manufacturing efficiency and pre-manufactured.
How Industry Leader Leer Structures Their Quick Ship, Quick Ship Plus Program Timing vs. Custom Builds
- Leer’s Quick Ship Program – 2 days to ship.
- Leer’s Quick Ship Plus Program – 10 days to ship.
- Average Custom Build Time – Weeks to ship.
Quick Ship Units Require Less Engineering Work
When you order a custom Walk-In Cooler or Freezer, each unit is engineered and manufactured to meet the unique specifications of your application – requiring engineers to spend time drafting and designing the Walk-In to get it right. They need to design it from scratch, then build it.
For Quick Ships, the Walk-In Cooler and Freezer layouts are standardized, so there’s no need for engineers to draft up designs and spend more time and resources.
Quick Ship Units Use Nominal Sizing
Even though programs like Leer’s Quick Ship and Quick Ship Plus have 20+ available sizes, they use nominal sizing. Nominal sizing means that there are standard sizes that allow for fast manufacturing.
Quick Ships Are More Affordable
Because Quick Ships are pre-designed, don’t require additional engineering work, pre-manufactured, and use nominal sizes the process, engineering, and materials are streamlined. With streamed lined operation efficiencies come cost savings. These cost savings are passed directly to you, resulting in a more affordable Walk-In Cooler and Freezer Quick Ship offerings.
Does this Mean Quick Ship Units are Lower Quality?
No, not at all. Leer never compromises on quality. Fast and affordable units are great but only if the products are also high quality. That’s why top-quality materials and manufacturing processes are extended from custom Walk-Ins to Quick Ship Walk-Ins. Just because Quick Ships might be a lower priced option for you, doesn’t mean that you should have to compromise on quality.
Simply put, all the work was done upfront in creating an efficient repeatable process, saving you time and money.
What if Quick Ship Isn’t Right for Me?
Quick Ship & Quick Ship Plus Programs are great. But it’s not for everyone. If you have complex needs, no worries, there’s custom solutions to ensure you end up with the highest quality option that meets your needs.
