SURVIVE A STORM TWISTER POD I purchased a Survive A Storm twister pod through Home Depot about a month ago. My son installed it last week and I couldn't be happier. I called Survive a Storm a few times and they were very helpful. Very happy with the twister pod. Now I feel safe should a tornado warning sound.

Great Little Shelter The survive-a-storm shelter is a great addition to our home. It is extremely well built and the craftsmanship is great. The installation went flawless and we were happy with the installation. I checked its storm rating and it is up to the tests, as a friend of mine runs the Texas Tech testing center. The round architecture makes it a little more storm worthy than the square as it will deflect objects and wind. We have added additional lights and a fan and battery TV to keep up with weather advisories if we are in the shelter. It has ample room for four people and our dog so we are very happy with it. The neighbors have shown quite and interest as its shape is unique among the above ground shelters. We hope that we never have to use it. Great little shelter and I would highly recommend it

Just what we needed! Our shelter was installed about a week before the sirens went off. Thankfully the tornado missed our area but we felt safe and secure. The survive a storm folks called then and the next week when another storm came through. Top notch product, install, and follow up!

Just what I needed. This shelter is very sturdy and very heavy. I installed it myself on slab outside with really no problem. I did have to purchase some washers for the anchors. I plan to move it into the house I'm building and really don't see any problems I should run into. All in all I am very pleased with this unit.

Peace of mind. We are so happy we finally have a storm shelter. The peace of mind of having this shelter in our garage is priceless. The people at survive-a-storm who handled our order were great. The installation was quick and easy. The installers were very professional and left absolutely no mess.

The installation team was on point. We have already shown our shelter to others. And if there comes a storm, I'll definitely be in it. It just feels good knowing we have some place to go and my dogs can get in too!

 Storm Shelter Financing Options Available

There is no doubt of the importance of purchasing the best storm shelter for you and your family.  Keeping that in mind, while everyone wants the ‘best deal on the market’, that best deal might not be the one you want to trust to save the lives of those you love.  Survive-a-Storm Shelters understands that the cost of owning America’s #1 shelter might be a little more out of pocket than expected, however, settling for a mediocre shelter that is substandard, as in concrete or fiberglass, or even one from a company operating under the ‘good old boy’ rule of thumb, is not what will save lives.  Survive-a-Storm Shelters have been proven, both in the testing field, and in actual tornadoes.

We want everyone to be able to afford our supreme shelters.  In fact, we have multiple financing options to help every consumer, because who can put a price limit on the life of those you love?

Some of our most popular financing options include The Home Depot credit card with 0% interest for 24 months, and The Home Depot Project Loan with monthly payments for our Twister Pod as low as $58 per month!  We also have a relationship with Hearth Financing, which features affordable monthly payments and funding within 1-3 days!  Of course, we also accept all major credit and debit cards, and if you prefer getting a loan from your own bank, well, we will accept that, too!  Don’t let finances get in the way of your family safety plan for tornadoes.  Give us a call today!
