Can Truck Tarps Help In Hurricane Conditions?

Hurricanes seem to be hitting the area more and more every year and trucking companies like you are likely to suffer. Hurricane wind and water is likely to cause damage to your trucks that can be expensive to repair. However, is it possible that truck traps and canopies could help protect your vehicles from damage?

The short answer to this question is “yes.” A great tarp or canopy placed over your truck would help protect it from much of the damage of wind, rain, sleet, and hail. Tying it down to fully cover your vehicle will provide you with even more comprehensive protection that can keep your vehicles running great.

However, the longer answer suggests that trucks and canopies are not a miracle solution. For example, a poorly-tied tarp is likely to blow away in hurricane winds. This will leave your trucks helpless against all that hurricane damage. That’s why it’s so important to carefully store your trucks and tie your tarps down.

It is also a good idea to get multiple tarps to ensure total coverage of your vehicle. A single tarp may be good enough to cover most trucks. However, multiple ones help cover any potentially exposed areas and may prevent the kind of serious damage that hurricanes can cause.

So if you think your trucking company would benefit from high-quality tarps like these, don’t hesitate to contact us today to learn more. Our experts will work hard to get you the great tarps that you need and provide you with the comprehensive service that you deserve.

Do You Have Enough Tarps and Emergency Supplies for the 2014 Hurricane Season?

Hurricane SeasonIn no time at all, the 2014 hurricane season will be upon us. It is expected to start on May 15th in the Eastern Pacific. The Central Pacific and Atlantic seasons, on the other hand, are both slated to kickoff on June 1st. All three are anticipated to continue until the end of November. So now is a great time to determine whether or not you have enough blue roofing tarps and other emergency supplies to see your family through.

At Canopies and Tarps, we have an assortment of weather resistant, blue roof tarps in stock. You can use them along with drainage tarps to make temporary repairs. Our blue roof tarps range in size from 10 x 18 to 30 x 60. And you can count of each one to provide total protection from water and UV rays. They are reasonably priced and we do sell them in bulk too.

In addition to the tarps, we also have a selection of survival kits, hurricane emergency kits, first aid kits and other emergency gear on hand. We are exceptionally proud of our hurricane emergency kits. They are stocked with everything that two people need to safely withstand a 72 hour long period in relative comfort. If you have more than two people in your family, you could opt to add to the existing kit or purchase supplemental ones like the Survival Pal for Children or the Guardian Deluxe Office Survival Kit.

Our first aid kits come in a variety of forms too. Some of them, like the First Responder Bag, come equipped with CPR masks, scalpels and stethoscopes. Others, like the PRO-II Trauma Bag, contain cervical collars, universal splints, suture sets, tourniquets and ammonia inhalants.

Last but not least, its a good idea to grab pop-up tents, rain ponchos, emergency sleeping bags, body warmers and blankets too. Many of those items are compact enough to fit right in with any one of the kits that we mentioned previously.
