BiGDUG Make Shelving Recommendations Amidst UK Flood Crisis

Share Article

Commercial storage experts BiGDUG are urging people to think ahead during the recent spate of floods across the United Kingdom, and to invest in storage shelving across the home to keep their possessions safe and dry in case of unforeseen circumstances.

Getting the right garage shelving solutions in place to store all your items is an excellent preventative measure

A recent spate of heavy rain across the UK has seen severe flooding across West Yorkshire, Devon, Bristol, Cambridge and any other areas. Some regions have seen more than a month’s worth of rain within the space of a few days, with people living in areas close to rivers bracing themselves for the worst should they overrun.

The team at BiGDUG is warning people to be vigilant in the coming weeks, and to make sure that they have flood-proof solutions in place in case of an emergency. BiGDUG know from conversations with their customers on a regular basis that people still keep their possessions on the floor in their garage, and don’t store expensive items properly above floor level.

If people are unlucky enough to be affected by flooding within their own home, then there is a chance their possessions may be lost to them due to flood damage and more. BiGDUG has a range of storage solutions, from garage shelving and plastic storage boxes to try to help weatherproof in-house possessions and save them from flood damage.

"It’s no secret that this has been one of the most miserable summers since records began. Recent flood warnings haven’t made things much better, and it’s imperative that people try to flood-proof their homes as much as possible as a precaution against the elements," comments a spokesperson for BiGDUG.

"Take the garage, for example. So many people fill it to the brim with clutter, but it’s one of the most susceptible areas of the home where flooding is concerned. Getting the right garage shelving solutions in place to store all your items is an excellent preventative measure that may help keep all your equipment safe and sound should you ever be affected by flooding. Our advice is to get your possessions off the floor and onto shelving and your valuable items on as high a shelf as possible"
