Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 02, 2012
Worldwide Power Products (WPP), a power-generation equipment provider to industrial clients worldwide, this morning shipped six generators to customers in New Jersey and Virginia, two states heavily affected by the violent weekend storms that left more than three million without power. WPP offers a fast-response standby rental program for portable generators that enables it to locate nearby units and ship them to customers in a matter of hours. The generators will help provide relief in areas where a soaring heat wave is exacerbating the misery of residents whose power may not be restored for many days.
“Devastating storms such as this one stand as a reminder that the perils of summer are not limited to hurricanes,” said WPP Executive VP Mark Lum. “For this reason, our standby generator program operates throughout the country, enabling customers to reserve a rental unit that can be stored onsite at their location or in one of our warehouses. In cases where we warehouse the unit, we can often deliver it almost immediately.”
An innovative and unusual aspect of WPP’s program, compared to those of its competitors, is that it does not charge a premium for the hours when the customer uses the generator. “When a company is suffering the effects of a power loss, their business operations have been disrupted, and they may have experienced physical damage as well,” says Lum. “Charging a consistent monthly rate enables our customers to budget for their standby generator expense and not suffer the additional burden of premium rental rates during times of crisis.”
