Last year (2017) was one of the worst years for hurricanes and natural disasters in the USA and the Caribbean. It appears millions of people got caught off guard and then the desperation kicked in... “We need a generator NOW” was a very popular line when hundreds of people flooded our phone lines requesting a generator that they wanted to be shipped “Today.”
Of course the stock we had on hand quickly depleted and then the long lead times came into play. Not what anyone wanted to hear.
Every manufacturer can only produce so many units at any given time and many people were told they would need to wait up to 6 weeks to get a generator. The storms continued to hit Florida, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and many other islands in the Caribbean. Some parts of Puerto Rico are still without power, four months after the storms.
You can imagine what we were dealing with as every other generator manufacturer was.
We began working overtime to get orders out within a reasonable time but we must admit, we were flooded with orders.
Why do people wait for a catastrophe to happen before they seek help? Most people feel it will never happen to them. However, those people living in very vulnerable places such as the state of Florida, the east coast and eastern seaboard and the Caribbean already know that hurricanes happen every summer/fall.
Why not be proactive and think ahead. Plan now for what will come in the future.
This is the best time of the year to order a generator. Although we are still producing generators for Puerto Rico and other affected areas, our lead times have dropped significantly. We can have a generator at your door much sooner, so when the next storm hits, you will be prepared and worry-free. Think about your family, your business, your peace of mind.
