Emergency Storage After a Disaster
There are so many things to consider after your home suffers damage from a fire, flood or other disaster. One of those considerations is what to do with your personal items during a home restoration. You may need to temporarily relocate to a hotel, which means storing your goods. If the restoration is significant, you may need to move to an apartment. American Portable Storage is the best solution, no matter how long you need to store your belongings.
Short-Term Emergency Storage
We offer two sizes of storage units, 12 feet and 16 feet, for your emergency storage needs. Most homeowners who only need a month or two of storage choose to have our unit(s) delivered to their driveway and left there during the restoration. This allows for easy access to any belongings you need to access during the restoration process. It’s also a great option if you’re living in a hotel because you can easily store your clothing in the unit and change things out seasonally, freeing up room in the hotel room.
Long-Term Restoration Storage
If you and your insurance company realize you’ll need a significant restoration, you may find that renting an apartment is a better option. Our emergency storage allows you the ease of loading the items you want in the temporary space in one unit, and loading the long-term storage items in another unit. Once you’ve packed everything away, we’ll take the unit for long-term storage back to our facility for safekeeping and deliver your other unit to your new temporary residence. When you’re ready to move back home, we’re ready to help with the move back.
