HOW SUNBELT RENTALS CAN HELP WITH NATURAL DISASTER & HURRICANE RECOVERY
When a disaster strikes, day-to-day operations stand the risk of a complete shutdown. If you have not already, it is crucial to establish a contingency plan with the appropriate vendor. The emergency response support team at Sunbelt Rentals will help quickly mitigate damage and loss by providing the recovery supplies and equipment needed. A well-crafted contingency plan will consider past experiences, help reduce the extent of damage, and better prepare your customers for future scenarios. This plan will also reduce downtime and increase productivity, saving your customers business time and money.
After a contingency plan is developed, rest-assured that the Sunbelt Rentals team will be there to support you with urgent tasks associated with recovery efforts. These remediation and restoration tasks can range from initially restoring the power to a facility and bringing processes back online to supplying equipment to remove moisture and dry carpet during an unexpected situation.
Although the dates, times, and locations of unexpected severe storms cannot be predicted, it is safe to say that everyone should prepare for their seasons. The Eastern Pacific hurricane season runs May 15 through November 30 and the Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30. Before a severe storm strikes, Sunbelt Rentals representatives work intimately with their customers to ensure seamless coordination of equipment deliveries to their location impacted by the storm.
Sunbelt Rentals is available 24/7 to help quickly mitigate damage and loss. The team understands the needs of remediation and restoration projects, and disaster response units are strategically placed throughout the U.S. to mobilize equipment for your convenience.
Keep in mind, there is a solution offered for whatever damage you experience. Renting portable and containerized generators, for example, allows steady and reliable power when a severe storm eliminates it.

Remediation and Restoration
After being hit with a storm, it’s critical to get your customer’s home, facility, and/or community building back to its entirety as soon as possible.

These solutions can quickly be provided to a site to help recover from a disaster.
