TO ALL OUR CUSTOMERS AFFECTED BY HURRICANES IRMA AND HARVEY
- Your Safety Comes First. Always be careful when entering or inspecting cargo container units after natural disasters. If there is serious structural damage, do not enter the unit. Watch out for debris and downed power lines. Avoid walking through flood waters to inspect damage as they may be fast moving or electrically charged. Use flashlights in the dark.
- Documentation is Helpful. If you have identified any concerns, document the damage thoroughly. Keep a record of damaged property and prepare a list. If you have any form of damage to the leased unit or container, contact your insurance company to begin the claims process.
- Verify Safe Electrical & Gas Connection. Verify that the electrical connection is intact and functioning. Inspect for any signs of damage. If the power has not yet been restored to the area, power off the panel box to eliminate risk at the time of power restoration. At any sign of threat, contact 911. If the cargo container unit is connected to a gas line, have an electrician check the system before turning power on again.
- Flipped or Tossed Container? If the container unit has flipped over or lost its footing, do not attempt to right it. Do not allow anyone to move in or about the unit. If possible, cordon off the area with caution tape or rope with red flags. Contact us immediately.
Flood Damaged Container? Flood damage creates an environment conducive to mold and mildew. Notify us if the freight container unit has been under water for any period of time or has sustained water intrusion due to window or roof damage.
- Turn off main power if the wiring is wet or moldy or has been exposed to flooring. Have an electrician check the system before turning power on again.
- Open the unit to fresh air when humidity outside is lower than inside.
- Turn on fans and dehumidifiers in the unit.
- Remove all wet items from the unit (carpet, furniture, etc.). Be sure to wear safety gloves and if mold is evident, wear a protective mask.
- Contact our service department to coordinate an inspection.
