How Movers and Storage Providers Helped Hurricane Sandy Victims?

hurricane-sandyWhile the victims of Hurricane Sandy were still collecting from the remains of the disaster, all the newscasts displayed their strength, determination and stamina in their eyes.

However, the progress of recovery of a large number of homeowners, especially those who had seniors or handicapped family members, was getting hindered by lack of communications, power, manpower, lift and moving equipment, storage and transportation facilities.

While many movers and storage providers were eager to help, most people in need of these services were not aware how to reach them. On the other hand, things were becoming bad as authorities handling disaster relief and the media were beginning to warn the victims to be cautious of the dishonest opportunists in that situation.

On the other hand, there were other reputable full service movers and storage service providers that included Long Island Moving and Storage Association, New York State Movers & Warehousemen’s Association, Maryland Movers Conference and Pennsylvania Moving and Storage Associates.

Those in need of moving services could have also got access to the reputable and largest household goods carriers in North America. Usually, most of these van lines had affiliated contractors and agents operating close to areas affected by the Hurricane.

The residents in the disaster area didn’t just require potable water and non-perishable food, but they also needed communication links. Without communication, it was not possible to get help from outside.

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission reported that around 19% of the cell sites in the disaster area were out of service. However, the communication situation continued improving because only a small time ago, the cell sites out of communication services were 25%. On the other hand, household movers and mobile container drivers ensured that they had their fuel tanks full and phones charged while delivering services and moving in and out of the disaster area.
