FAQ's

 

 

How much ice do I need?

This largely depends on what you are going to use it for. You will probably have a container for drinks, usually two or more if your event is for more than 20 people. Perhaps one for chilling wine and one for chilling beer. Maybe another for soft drinks and another for chilling bottles of water. And Champagne too if it's a wedding or special event. Also consider how long the event will last. After about two or three hours you will need to add more ice to your containers. What kind of people are attending your event? A rugby club disco lasting from 7pm to 3am will usually drink more than a corporate annual dinner, but not always.

How long does ice take to melt?

It is often thought that ice cubes need to be delivered just before an event starts because the ice will melt very quickly. Surprisingly, because our ice cubes are solid and deep frozen they melt relatively slowly. We carried out an experiment on a Bank Holiday weekend in August a few years ago and we stacked 10 x 12Kg bags of ice together outside against a wall, covering them with a bath towel. We did this on a Saturday afternoon and the following Tuesday there was still about 15% of ice left. Each day and night was warm and the ice was even in direct sunlight for part of each day.

This means that if your event starts at 8pm for example, We can delivery during the afternoon for our Standard Delivery charge and you should not lose too much ice through melting. Alternatively we do offer an evening or Timed delivery service at extra cost.

How long does ice take to chill a bottle of wine from room temperature?

There are two answers to this question depending on whether you add water to the ice cubes. If you add water to the ice the bottle of wine will chill from room temperature in approximately 15 minutes. If you don't add water to the ice cubes the bottle of wine may take more than an hour to chill. We recommend that your container is filled half to two thirds full of ice cubes and water is added up to the level of the ice. Then add the drinks you want to chill. Perfect!

 

Why use us?

Proper ice cubes! Deep frozen solid cubes that last longer. Not hollow cylinders of ice and not delivered dripping because they haven't been stored or transported properly.

 

A lot of "ice companies" are here today, gone tomorrow pop-up companies. They may be cheaper because they are just a private individual with a refrigerated van, sometimes they don't even have that. We have heard of dodgy deliveries (and illegal ones) delivered  melting from the back of a car! The "ice companies" do not even produce their own ice. They buy in bulk from industrial factories that sometimes stop supplying them when the weather gets hot. This means you could be let down badly, and when you need it most. We manufacture ice cubes ourselves with four machines. We are not reliant on others so it is extremely unlikely we will let you down.

 

Drinks without ice cubes are HORRIBLE!!!!
