Deep in the heart of Texas rests a company founded on selling premium used and new shipping containers as well as tornado shelters at bargain prices. Big Texas Containers is based in Tyler, and has established markets in Dallas, Houston, and Austin. However, the Tyler, Texas Company will soon be known around the country as they are now shipping their Big Texas containers to all 50 states.

Shipping containers range from 10 feet to 53 feet in length to ensure varying sizes of storage. One of the pioneering factors of these containers is the multi-facet ability to construct homes, high-rise buildings, and offices from the dexterity provided by the containers to assist a contractor. The 40-foot containers are designed to store approximately 59,000 pounds of cargo.

All containers sold by Big Texas Containers are built to international standards. Each container door has levers that you press forward and then down when closing. This allows the appropriate amount of pressure to be applied to the weather stripping, which seals the container. The floor is made from 1-1/8 inch thick marine plywood that is unlike anything found at the local lumberyard. The plywood is treated and designed to be exposed to water, moisture and significant amounts of weight on a regular basis.

The safe rooms are large and have a great deal of versatility thanks to the modular design. They can fit anywhere from 4 to 20 adults on their standard sizes but can be built to provide shelter from a tornado for hundreds or even thousands of people. “There is no job too big,” says Jason Umbower, the owner and founder of Big Texas Containers & Shelters. “Installation is fast and easy and we encourage all of our customers to try the install themselves so they can see just how easy it is,” says Mr. Umbower. For those who prefer the convenience of having a skilled installation team perform the assembly of the unit, installation starts at just $500. By request, the company can install bullet-resistant panels to the interior of the already partially bulletproof safe room. The bullet-resistant panels have been tested to withstand multiple hits by a .30 caliber high-powered assault rifle. They also offer quotes on virtually bulletproof safe rooms and containers.

Their safe rooms have been designed and impact tested against devastating EF5 Tornado. This is similar to the tornadoes that recently claimed lives in locations such as Moore, Oklahoma and Joplin, Missouri. The 4-foot x 6-foot safe room was impact tested by researchers at Texas Tech University. The safe rooms can be multi-purposed for many elements of protections such as gun storage. During emergency conditions, families can securely fit into the safe room along with their ample supply of guns, food and water for protection on all levels.

Safety and security needs to be a hallmark of the American family. Times have changed with the ways in which violent crimes are committed and lets not forget the tumultuous weather reaching far beyond the urban centers. Big Texas Containers can help your Family prepare to survive virtually any disaster scenario. Zero interest financing is also available on approved credit.

Big Texas Containers & Shelters ships containers out of Tyler TX, Dallas TX and also Houston TX and has established markets in Austin TX, El Paso TX, Texarkana TX and all areas in between. There is practically no area within the State of Texas that Big Texas Containers doesn’t deliver to. For more information on Safe Rooms, Shipping Containers and Tornado Shelters log on to:
