Commercial Coolers and Freezers in Halifax

Refurbished True® Equipment In Halifax

Affordable, and high quality don’t always go hand-in-hand. At Ancaster Food Equipment, our customers don’t have to choose. Since the early 90’s, we have been refurbishing commercial refrigeration. What started out as a need for affordable, quality equipment, has turned into a large scale operation. We operate 6 days a week out of a 40,000 square foot warehouse in Brantford, Ontario.

Our primary focus is on our fully refurbished True® coolers and freezers. We also carry brand new equipment. In our Brantford warehouse, we keep back stock of our 1, 2 a 3 basin portable sinks, single and double door novelty freezers, and some brand new commercial refrigeration units. We work with brands from all over the world that we trust. Should our customers require any additional commercial equipment, our team of sales agents will source out the products needed.

Refurbished True® Coolers and Freezers

For over thirty years, we have been refurbishing commercial refrigeration. Ancaster Food Equipment has become an industry leader in refurbished commercial equipment. We solely refurbished the True® brand, because of the reliability, and durability of their units. The GDM series is made from high quality materials that are built to last.

Our fully refurbished True® coolers and freezers go through quite the process. Our team removes all existing components and replaces them with brand new OEM parts. These parts include:

Our refurbished coolers and freezers are then tested to ensure all temperatures are being held, and are up to par. From there, the commercial refrigerators and coolers are repainted and receive brand new vinyl. Then our team of True® certified technicians installs brand new LED lighting.

All of our refurbished coolers and freezers come with a two (2) year parts and service warranty, and an additional five (5) years compressor.

Refurbished Floral Coolers

Over the last couple of years, we have seen an increased demand for floral cases.. The floral coolers come in single, double and triple doors. Customers have the option of black, or white finishes for the exterior of the floral cooler.

Our fully refurbished floral coolers undergo the same process and testing as our standard coolers. The difference is that the floral cases have the same modifications as a brand new True® floral unit. Floral arrangements need a more gentle airflow to thrive, and higher humidity levels to prevent them from drying out. This type of flower cooler preserves the flowers, keeping them fresh and beautiful.

Our fully refurbished floral cases come with a seven (7) year compressor warranty, and two (2) years on all parts and service. The warranty is handled directly through Ancaster Food Equipment. Should customers in Halifax require service on their floral cooler, please contact our office directly.

Novelty Freezers

Novelty freezers are a great addition to a corner store, gas station, or grocery store. Available in a variety of sizes, these affordable chest style freezer allow for additional storage, and sales! When it gets hot in Halifax, provide your customers with a quick grab-and-go frozen treat! We carry dipping freezers, suitable for ice cream parlors. Our dipping cases can hold up to 10 flavors of ice cream!

Portable Sinks

Our portable sinks have become a top seller since the start of the pandemic. With sanitation and hand washing at the forefront of everyone’s minds, our sinks are a unique and easy way to make hand washing more accessible. We assemble the portable sinks at our warehouse in Brantford, and ship them across North America. Our Portable Sinks have been sold to the Canadian Red Cross, and many other trusted names.

The sinks are made from high quality 304 gauge stainless steel, and come with built in casters making them easy to move. Each portable sink comes standard with a one (1) year parts warranty.

Electrical (Voltage)

It is important for customers to review the product specification sheets prior to shipment. Our refurbished coolers, and single door freezers use 115v, whereas our two and three door freezers use 220v. If you purchase a freezer that requires additional electrical requirements, your sales representative will send you detailed information.

***Please note that our commercial coolers and freezers can not be used with a power converter. If a converter is used this will void any warranty on our refurbished coolers and freezers.


Once your cooler/freezer leaves our warehouse, you will receive tracking information from our shipping department. We will provide you with contact information for the carrier, should you need to contact them directly about your delivery.

For our customers based in Halifax, we use a third party freight company. The driver will not be able to bring the unit(s) inside of your location. It is tailgate service only. Should you require inside delivery, please discuss this with your sales representative.

Shipping costs depend on a lot of things:

  • How many units are ordered
  • The weight of each unit
  • If you live in a major city, or rural township
  • If the equipment is coming from different warehouses

Sinc shipping is not a one size fits all situation, it is best for our sales team to get a shipping quote done to your exact shipping address once we have narrowed down the amount of units that are being ordered.
