The Zombie Apocalypse! How Self Storage Can Save Your Life

October 21, 2017 | Family Life


Halloween is the time of year when people start thinking about how they might survive the zombie apocalypse. Why? With millions of loyal viewers watching hit TV series like the Walking Dead and iZombie, it’s clear we have just as much of an insatiable appetite for zombies as they do for us.

If you are looking for ways to survive the zombie apocalypse this Halloween, learn more about zombie behavior and survival strategies at the Zombie Research Society. That’s not a joke. And, it has loads of zombie-related facts and trivia to keep your mind off the real thing.

Here are some suggestions for the best way to survive an attack. And remember, if all else fails to take shelter at your local self storage facility; it’s the ideal anti-zombie fortress.


Learn from the movies


Before the CDC announces a zombie apocalypse is headed your way, watch how real zombie slayers get the job done on the big screen. Movies like Zombieland and World War Z will give you clues on what a real zombie invasion would like. All from the comfort of your couch.

If you are more of an outdoors type, then hone your adventure skills to outrun and outmaneuver zombies. When the time comes to find a stronghold, keep in mind that storage units come in a wide variety of sizes to accommodate you and your group of survivors. Look for security features such as 24-hour access, multiple entrances and exits that make getting to safety a breeze, and most importantly, good lighting so you are never caught off guard.

How long you will survive the zombie apocalypse is anyone’s guess. However, with a little ingenuity and a secure self storage unit stocked with the essentials like water and food, your chance for survival will dramatically increase.


Don’t be a hero


As remote as a zombie apocalypse may be, we believe in the Boy Scout motto: “Be prepared!”

Notice, the word Hero is not in that sentence. That’s why this Halloween, finding a comfortable place to hang out while others do the fighting might be your best idea yet.

If you do decide to go out and battle the zombie invasion, you can keep your favorite belongings safe inside your storage unit. Here at Metro Self Storage, we offer a wide variety of features and amenities that focus on security and comfort to keep your belongings safe because we know your how important your possession are.

Storage security amenities include keypad entry access (zombies are dumb and will never figure out your PIN), well-lit facilities, and individually alarmed units. If there is a security fence around your preferred self storage facility, it will be one more barrier between you and a flesh-eating monster looking for a midnight snack.


The cheapest zombie survival vehicle


Unless you happen to have a military vehicle parked in your front yard, your best bet for the optimal anti-zombie vehicle is the cheapest moving truck rental you can find. Why risk damaging your SUV or truck when you are smashing into zombies?

Escaping from zombie warfare is messy business. Whether you find a U-Haul or Penske, a moving truck will transport you in style and comfort out of harm’s way. Many storage facilities provide moving truck rentals on site.

If you are lucky enough to have chosen a storage facility with a free moving truck then get there first. Otherwise, take note on where the storage facility manager keeps the moving truck keys.


No zombie warfare in freezing weather


While a panda can survive in winter, zombies cannot. What a relief for people who live in states where snow is to winter what Rick Lincoln is to Zombie culture. Sorry Dead Snow, but we researched the most popular zombie movies of all time and found very few take place in winter.

Nevertheless, there is still a debate if zombies can survive in freezing temperatures. You won’t be cold if you know the difference between a climate-controlled storage and non-climate-controlled storage unit.

If you still haven’t heard news of an invasion by the time Halloween approaches you can start planning for a Zombie Apocalypse Halloween Party. Ideas for ghoulish party themes abound from how to make a zombie tutu to Marilyn Monroe zombie costume ideas and Zombie Apocalypse Party Food. All will leave you hungry for more ways to celebrate this Halloween.

In the meantime, make note of these survival tips then locate the best storage facility near you. It is never too early to start preparing for any type of natural disaster and stocking up your storage unit with the essentials.

Have a fun and safe Halloween!
