We’ve all seen at least one zombie apocalypse movie about the undead taking over the world. However, unlike aliens, who come from outer space, where zombies originate remains a mystery as does why the zombie’s brain has only one program running: Eat! Eat! Eat!
Are you looking for ways to survive this Halloween’s Zombie apocalypse?
You can learn more about zombie behavior and survival strategies at the Zombie Research Society, we’re not joking, this really exists and it has loads of information to satiate your curiosity.
Here is our simple suggestion for the best way to survive an attack: Take shelter at your local self storage facility; it is the ideal anti-zombie fortress.
Find a storage facility
Before the CDC announces a Zombie Apocalypse find a storage facility near you. It will not only provide a stronghold, but 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 motion activated lighting so you are never caught off guard.
How long you will survive a zombie invasion 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.
Secure self storage
From a last minute promotion that requires you to move across the country to an unexpected rent increase that forces an unwanted move, all kinds of emergencies can pop up at any time. Of course, as remote as a zombie apocalypse may be, we believe in the Boy Scout motto: “Be prepared!”
Metro Self Storage facilities offer a wide variety of features and amenities that focus on security features to keep your belongings safe because we think your things are just as important as you are.
Storage security features often 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.
Quintessential 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 you can find. Why risk damaging your SUV or truck when you are on the move?
Escaping from zombie warfare is a messy business. Whether you find a U-Haul or Penske moving truck, they 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.
Comfortable living during zombie warfare
Comfort and living might sound like an oxymoron during a zombie invasion, but as long as you are living you might as well be comfortable, right? I researched the most popular zombie movies of all time and found very few take place in freezing winters. What a relief for people who live in the Midwest states such as Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois and on the East Coast in New York and Pennsylvania.
Nevertheless, while there is still a debate if zombies freeze in the winter, you won’t if you know the difference between climate-controlled storage vs non-climate-controlled storage units.
If you still haven’t heard news of an invasion by the time Halloween approaches you can always find Zombie Apocalypse Halloween Party ideas on Pinterest. Ideas for a ghoulish party 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 party ideas this Halloween.
Make a list of must haves then find the best storage facility near you. It is never too early to start preparing for any natural disaster and stocking up your storage unit with the essentials.
In the meantime, have a fun and safe Halloween!
