Putting Disaster Supplies in Storage

Burning building and text "Putting disaster supplies in storage"

You might not be a “doomsday prepper” per se, but if you are someone who has a plan in case of a flood, fire, or another natural disaster, then you likely have a good stash of backup supplies. You’ve purchased canned food and bottled water, and you have power and heat sources, just in case the gas or electricity go out. At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we can help you find a suitable self-storage unit for those supplies that you want to store, just in case you need them in the future.


Survival Supplies

There may come a time when you have to leave your home because of a natural disaster or another catastrophic event. While you aren’t storing food and water in your storage unit, you can put other survival supplies in there. Extra clothing, camping supplies, and more can be good things to put into storage, and if your house is affected by a disaster, you won’t have to search for these items. Our storage centers across the greater metro area are built of strong, durable materials, so you can feel confident that your unit will be accessible when you need to retrieve your survival supplies.

Storing a Vehicle

dreamstime_l_6412298If a disaster strikes, your vehicles could be the first item you own to be affected, since they may be sitting outside on the street or in the driveway. Flying debris and falling branches could leave your car unsafe to drive, making it hard to get to safety quickly. By storing a car at a local storage facility, you can protect it from natural disasters, and it will be ready to go once you arrive. You may have to get a ride from a neighbor or a disaster aid organization, but you should be able to drive your vehicle out of the storage facility and to wherever you need to go.

Precious Belongings

When a home is damaged by natural disaster, the most important thing is that you and your family are safe. Many items, like furniture and appliances, can be replaced, but there may be precious family heirlooms or mementos that are lost forever following a flood or a fire. By storing these items in a secure self-storage unit, you can rest assured that they are protected. Instead of trying to find your belongings in the basement or garage following a natural disaster, you can retrieve them from your unit, or at least check on them to ensure they’re safe.
