With Refrigerated Vans, Bigger Isn’t Always Better

Dallas Courier, Refrigerated Van

We get it. Here in Texas, everything is bigger. From the chicken fried steak on your oversized plate to the jumbo screen at the Cowboys’ home stadium, bigger is generally better.


Except when it’s not.


If Ant Man has taught us anything, it’s that sometimes, the little guy can do great things. If you think about it, “better” always trumps “bigger”. This is especially true for your refrigerated deliveries in DFW. If you want better service for your temperature sensitive goods, it might be time to consider using a refrigerated transit van- which is something our Dallas Courier team most certainly has to offer.


When comparing refrigerated vans to refrigerated trucks, there are some clear reasons for going with the bigger option. For example, you have larger cargo or multiple pallets. But most folks don’t have a full truckload of product. In that case, the refrigerated van is your most sensible option.


Here’s why sometimes it pays to forego the big refrigerated trucks and the big transportation providers for the smaller, refrigerated van from your local courier:



Increased Flexibility

Ever tried to parallel park an extended cab truck into a spot clearly marked “compact car”? Yeah, us either. When it comes to deliveries in Downtown Dallas, a refrigerated straight truck isn’t the ideal transportation. A refrigerated van can maneuver the traffic jams on our North Texas freeways, find spots to park near your business, and, the best part, deliver right to your door. The smaller vehicle means greater flexibility, which means an easier delivery process for our customers.


Reduced Delivery Costs

As with most things, the bigger option costs more. If you’re looking to keep your costs low, don’t waste your T&L budget on unnecessary space in a large delivery truck. Vans are cheaper to operate, and our Dallas Courier team passes those savings on to you. Pay for the space you need, and if a refrigerated van does the trick for your goods, then smaller is better for your business.


Same Speedy Delivery Options, And More

At Dallas Courier we work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to serve you well. We’re available any time of day or night, whenever your delivery need pops up. Our extensive list of services includes route deliveries, final mile services, white glove options, and, of course, temperature control. All of our great services are available, no matter what size vehicle you choose.


Consider this, though: with a refrigerated van, your items inevitably move faster that they would with a large 52 foot straight truck. As we talked about earlier, the increased flexibility with a van means reduced delivery times.


Small Business Benefits with Big Business Service

Let’s look at the bigger picture of small business. (Pun intended.) When you opt against the "bigger is better" mindset, you reap the benefits of a personal, friendly small business. A local provider like Dallas Courier knows your needs as a DFW business operator. We’ll treat you like a member of our North Texas family. Personalized care, local knowledge, and friendly team members are what you gain by sticking with a small business like Dallas Courier. But don’t be fooled. Just because we’re a small business doesn’t mean we’re small on service. Just ask our current and past customers.


It goes against everything a Texan believes, but bigger isn’t always better. Better is better. And sometimes better service is what you get when you opt for a refrigerated van for your next temperature sensitive delivery.
