If you were ever forced to evacuate, your home-stored supplies will be jeopardized regardless of how prepared you may be.

BackupCrate, the first-ever backup supplies “maintenance-as-a-service” company, today announces their official launch, and have waived reservation fees for a limited time. BackupCrate was developed to give people the security of having a crate full of essential supplies available for them, delivered to them, whenever they need it. Enjoy not ever having to line-up for hours only to see signs that say “out-of-stock” or “rationed supplies” again!

The world is changing, and the traditional “just-in-time” supply chain management system, that every store operates on, was not built for a crisis, let alone a pandemic. The sudden increase in panic buying broke that system. Any updates to it to include crisis planning will require larger quantities of inventory, with longer expiration dates on each product. Large store chains are quick to tell us not to hoard, but where’s the guarantee when they have no plans to improve this system? The cost in doing so will be extremely high, the store owners will be forced to pass these expenses down to the consumers, to preserve profits.

The BackupCrate solution focuses specifically on the problem that broke this system. They will be able to plan and prepare ahead of time for every member, without having to guess just how much supply is needed.

BackupCrate is the only solution for the new world. It is effective, time-saving, and the most direct method of backup planning to ensure you and your loved ones are always covered. BackupCrate isn’t only for emergencies, it can be positioned as your primary supplies backup, and/or as the backup of the supplies, you may keep at home. If you were ever forced to evacuate, your home-stored supplies will be jeopardized regardless of how prepared you may be. BackupCrate is here for you. By removing the anxiety that comes with crisis preparation, they want to help reduce stress and worry from your life.

USA Today reported on March 11, 2020, when the Covid-19 crisis began, 1 in 6 of the products sold had prices spike 50% higher than the 90-day average. PPE products prices spiked close to 200%. "We saw the line around the block and we thought the world had gone mad.'' Chiquita Thursby and Yordano Tesfailasce had to wait an hour at Costco for two cases of bottled water, the most water they were allowed to buy, while paper towels and toilet tissue were completely sold out.

“We wanted the entire BackupCrate process, from the pricing structure to members summoning their crates, to be an absolute no-brainer,” said Donnie Chen, CEO of BackupCrate. Eiji Mine, CTO of BackupCrate adds, “Since Backupcrate's simple one-click-and-go process puts the supplies at our member's fingertips, our platform eliminates the need to do any of the physical shopping, storing or maintenance themselves.”
