St. Louis, MO, June 28, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- American Trailer & Storage, Inc. (doing business as AT&S), a portable storage and transportation equipment sales and rental company, announced that they have seen a significant increase in rental demand for their trailers and containers
in recent weeks in response to the tornados in Joplin and Sedalia, MO and in support of the flooding along the Missouri River in Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri and Illinois.
AT&S’ team has worked hard to meet the urgent demand of its customers. “We are able to respond promptly, and we know there’s an extreme sense of urgency,” said Chris Wilson, Operations Manager for AT&S’ Kansas City location. The company is able to deliver quickly using its own fleet of delivery trucks and tapping into an extensive network of trucking and towing companies.
Some customers, such as the Future Motel, in Percival, IA picked up the semi-trailers from AT&S in Kansas City and transported them to Iowa to then be used to take the contents of the hotel to higher ground. Hotel personnel informed AT&S that they expect the flooding to continue for several months. AT&S delivered dozens of trailers to companies in Hamburg, IA who were also packing up and moving building and plant equipment out of the area.
“With our quality equipment and superior logistics team, we’re able to help lots of businesses store and transport goods and equipment for both disaster preparedness and disaster relief efforts
, just as we did with the Red Cross during Katrina and the other storms a few years back,” said Jason Chambers, St. Louis Operations Manager for AT&S. We expect the calls for storage trailers and containers to start picking up when the flood waters start to make their way to St. Louis," he added.
