As the end of summer approaches, hurricane season is in full swing in the Northeast, including Long Island and towns all across New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania, such as Atlantic City, Hartford, and Philadelphia.
As Hurricane Sandy nearly three years ago and Tropical Storm Irene and Lee, the year before that have proven, it’s vital for homeowners and business owners to have a disaster and emergency plan in place to protect themselves, their belongings and their livelihoods.
Let the portable storage experts at A.B. Richards, the leading supplier of ground-level storage containers in the Northeast since 1982, help you ensure the safety of your family, home and business. Our portable storage containers can be a key part of your preparedness plan before, during and after a storm or other type of emergency strikes.
How Portable Storage Units Protect against Disasters and Emergencies
Our on-demand mobile storage units can be delivered quickly right to your home or business ahead of a foreseeable and predicted storm, allowing you to pack everything from your most prized personal possessions, important documents, and priority business assets such as paper files, computers and expensive inventory to all of your emergency preparedness materials such as non-perishable food, water, medicine and first aid supplies, pet provisions, clothing, bedding and sanitation necessities, and tools.
Because our weatherproof and fireproof portable storage units sit on site as opposed to a separate location, you can easily monitor all of your belongings and only you have access. In addition, thanks to their heavy-gauge, stainless steel construction and sturdy swing-out doors, you can rest assured everything for your home and/or business you store inside one or more of our units will stay safe and secure during severe weather and other natural disasters.
In the aftermath of a major storm or other types of unexpected catastrophe such as a fire or flood, our storage containers can also help you through the recovery process by allowing you to sort through your belongings and safely store them nearby as you repair and rebuild your home or business. You’ll also be able to take stock of your personal belongings and of your business inventory for insurance purposes by using one or more of our storage units.
