How best to transport all my veggies and other perishables to the site?

I just booked my first gig in January. Yay! It's for a party of 8, at a private home, 4-course meal. I need suggestions on how to best transport all my veggies and produce to the site. Any product suggestions?

Don't so anything at home, do it ALL at the client's!

You need what your menus require, nothing more, nothing less, and yes, you DO need "industrial stuff" if that is your business.

Here is an inexpensive way to make a portable fridge.  Put ice in airtight plastic bags or buy ice in same. Go to Walmart and buy plastic xmas deco storage boxes that you put stuff away in after holidays. Put some ice(in Bags on bottom) then salads ,foods etc, then more bagged ice on top do this in layers. This will hold hotel pans, or any other size pans and will cost with the ice about $7 to $12 each depending on size and amount of ice. Wheels can even be attached if you buy the heavier ones..They stack for easy shipping to .For only 8 people you don't need a lot. Good Luck If you are going to do this all the time , buy a Cam- Bro 2 door heat/cold cabinet(STILL THE BEST)
