Laundry Trailers Are Helping in Disaster Relief Efforts

Posted on November 6, 2018 by Portable Restroom Trailers in Uncategorized

2018 has truly been a year of ups and downs. We have seen a number of record breaking natural disasters challenge our country. From the volcanic eruptions in Hawaii to the hurricanes on the East Coast, it saddens us to see so many displaced families, destroyed businesses, and suffering communities.

Despite the sadness the disasters have caused, it prides us to see how Americans have remained resilient, helping their fellow neighbor, volunteering as first responders, and doing all that they can to get these pieces of our nation back on their feet. As providers of a variety of portable trailers, our restroom, shower, and laundry trailers have come to the aid of many. Organizations and communities have appreciated the value that these simple, everyday amenities bring to a low morale right after a disaster strikes.

We have used laundry trailers specifically to aid a wide variety of nonprofit organizations. Volunteer organizations put them to use by providing washers and dryers for affected families and individuals. In many cases, power or water may not be available after a disaster. Our laundry trailers ensure that access to clean clothing is made possible.

Other organizations, like community centers or churches, use them to keep linens and blankets clean for those who need shelter. After the trauma of potentially losing your house, car, or memories left behind, the comfort of a clean place to lie your head is essential.

Overall, these units have provided an amenity that many of us take for granted. When you lose everything, a simple task like putting a load in the wash becomes a luxury. As communities begin to recover after these disasters strike, we are glad to provide a small trinket of hope when all is lost.

WHY LAUNDRY TRAILERS HELP 

There are many ways that our laundry trailers provide aid when disaster strikes. A key factor that many of our clients appreciate is the easy maintenance of our units. When the call is made for laundry trailers, they’re delivered quickly and are able to be used soon after.

Setup and breakdown is easy. We have created our units to be very user friendly, ensuring that fleet renters and owners are able to access all that they need and get laundry trailers up and running. The faster the trailers are up and running, the sooner they can start providing aid for those in need.

One goal that our CEO had when our company was first founded was to provide a high quality product at an affordable price. That is why we have provided many options for payment when it comes to renting our purchasing a laundry trailer. We allow clients to choose to pay the trailer off in full or check out financing options. These options make our units accessible to businesses of all sizes and for a wide variety of uses.

After laundry trailers are deilvered and set up, they are available for a wide variety of uses during a disaster. We have had many churches and communities come to us for laundry trailers. When emergency strikes, these nonprofit organizations are the first to house those who have been displaced.

Laundry trailers allow these organizations to provide clean blankets, sleeping bags, and other comforting and warm items for their guests. After use, they are able to rewash these items and provide them for others who may need them.

In addition to providing warm items, these laundry trailers can allow those seeking refuge to clean their clothing and other cloth articles. When someone has lost nearly everything, these last few items can mean the world to them. It can provide them with the comfort they need as they begin the recovery journey. Laundry trailers give these citizens the opportunity to care for their possessions.

Aside from providing guests with sleeping items and a solution for any cloth items they’d like to wash, laundry trailers can provide simple, everyday assistance for organizations aiding in disaster relief. Other items, like mats, rugs, table cloths, or other small things we take for granted everyday can be what provides comfort for those displaced. These trailers can help to keep temporary shelters clean and welcoming.

TRAILERS FOR NATIONS FORD CHEMICAL COMPANY

While laundry trailers help with nonprofits and organizations providing relief for the affected, another group that benefits from them are small businesses. Many of us don’t think about how a disaster can affect local businesses. Depending on the damage, some must stop operating altogether for a period of time.

 

When disaster strikes, we are ready to help by providing these companies with the tools they need to get back to business as quickly and effectively as possible. One company we were happy to aid was the Nations Ford Chemical Company. This company, based in South Carolina, provides chemicals for companies worldwide.

When Hurricane Florence hit South Carolina, it put Nations Ford Chemical temporarily out of business. In order to get back up and running, employees were working around the clock, and with chemicals that may be harmful without proper care. Laundry trailers provide employees with a small amenity from home, allowing them to clean materials safely and thoroughly.

DISASTER RELIEF 2018 PROGRESS

After the shocking disasters we’ve seen this year, we can’t help but feel proud of fellow citizens in many of the affected areas. We have seen everyday heroes rise to the occasion and help neighbors as needed. Restroom, shower, and laundry trailers have aided in some way during each disaster in the US. Despite damages, hope was never lost.

As 2018 comes to an end, we reflect on what has passed and prepare for a new year to come. We urge you to keep giving to disaster relief funds and to remember that we are stronger when we help each other. Let’s continue to support those in need in 2019!
