Garage freezer with drawers?

Looking to get a freezer for extra storage for the garage, but don’t want a chest type one that you’ll never see things at the bottom, more one that opens with a door and has drawers like the standard you get inside? Or do they have to be a chest one to work in the cold outside?

Currys do upright freezers suitable for outbuildings. We got ours from there.

I’ve got a standard fridge freezer with drawers in the garage and it works fine!

Beko freezers are the only ones recommended for outbuildings that get really cold in the winter. We have an upright freezer with drawers.

@Watto1 thanks, we’re upgrading to a built in one and thought it would be a waste of electricity to run the freestanding fridge freezer we have as we don’t need the fridge part just the freezer.

You want one rated for the cold temperatures you get in a garage. Beko do them (that's what's in my garage) and at the time I bought mine they were the only manufacturer that made them. Your search filters are "Beko" and "upright". I've been very pleased with mine, had I known there was a pandemic in my future I'd have had a bigger one.

I bought a Beko one from John Lewis because as pp have said, they are designed for sheds/outbuildings. They can also withstand high temperatures during the summer.

I originally thought I’d only use the freezer bit too but you’d be amazed at how much it comes in handy! Mainly as a beer fridge in the summer when we have people over blush . Also useful to have an overflow fridge at Christmas.

I have an upright freezer with drawers. It's by Beko which is the only white goods company that guarantees its appliances to work at down to -15 C
I also have a Beko tumble dryer for this same reason.
Both of these live in a detached garage which gets very cold in winter .

Thanks @Watto1 I was thinking about the waste of electricity/money if the fridge was being chilled and not used.

Older model fridge freezers generally work ok, it’s the newer ones that won’t

We had this - it kept turning itself on and off and ruined an entire upright freezer of food

I have had this one for 18 months and am very happy with it.

We have a chest freezer in the garage, really important to buy the right freezer that is suitable for outbuildings, otherwise it will break, our freezer will operate at -10.

Another vote for Beko. No problems 6 years and counting.
