In the event that a disaster strikes, a true survivalist knows that the best way to make sure you and your family gets through is by an appropriate amount of preparation. This is why many survivalists have taken on the recognizable label as "preppers". The key to your survival will be making sure that the cache of goods that you have on hand when the time comes is enough to help you survive.
While the majority of preppers use their own home or a storm shelter on their property for storing their survival goods, there is a growing group of people who are starting to look for an even greater extension of security. Using storage units for survival gear seems like a logical way to make that happen.
Why is placing survival items in a storage unit a good idea?
If there was a major disaster, such as a bomb threat or natural disaster, it would not be unheard of for your home to be demolished or even taken over by vandals who want to raid what you have. If you have an additional cache of supplies in a storage unit, you can leave your home, get to safety, and retrieve what you have available in storage.
Should the storage unit be used solely for survival equipment?
This is something that is entirely up to you. If you choose to use only a portion of the storage unit for your survival equipment, just make sure your items will be easily accessible in the event you needed to grab your supplies in a hurry. It is best to keep your items clearly labeled and in appropriate containers, which would give you the ability to grab just what you need in just a few minutes if this was all you had.
Where would be the most desirable storage unit location?
Ideally, the storage facility that you choose should be within reach if you have to leave your home. However, there is nothing saying that having more than one small unit in several locations is a bad idea. This would allow you to have something within reach in a variety of locations if you do have to leave the comfort of your home.
If you are in the process of becoming a well-prepared survivalist, make sure you take some time to consider whether a storage unit would be a good option for you. You may find that it is easy to see why so many preppers are following this trend.Share
