Fortress Hurricane Season Art Storage 2020

The Atlantic hurricane season starts June 1st and it’s very important to prepare and plan ahead.   Planning ahead will reduce anxiety and stress during this already trying time.  There are many things to do prior to start of season such as getting your hurricane supplies organized, re-stocked and easily accessible.

But, do you also have an updated inventory of your art collection and other valuables?  Have you recently taken video or photos of the contents inside your home?  Don’t forget to email a copy to yourself as a backup.  Do you have copies of your insurance policies in a safe place?  Has your policy been updated to include all of your pieces, even those recently acquired?

Most importantly, do you have your storage unit reserved at The Fortress?  For as low as $200/month, you can have a safe, secure location in place for your valued art collection.  You should also have a date scheduled for the items to be professionally packed and picked up by our art handlers.  By doing this, you can focus on the other things that matter most such as protecting yourself and your family.

For over 36 years, Fortress has been helping Floridians and their insurance carriers survive hurricane season with one less worry.  We developed our Hurricane Season Preparedness Program well before Andrew and it has now become the model for insurance carriers worldwide.

Fortress provides a purpose-built, stand-alone steel and concrete constructed facility that is hurricane rated for winds in excess of 200mph.  Our facility is 13’ above sea level and all storage is above ground level.  Our back-up generator ensures that our secure, temperature and humidity controlled environment remains consistent during power outages.

Give us a call today at 305-374-6161 or email us at kjones@thefortress.com for more information about how we can help you protect your art this coming season.
