You know how to prepare your home in the face of a hurricane, you know the essentials to stock up on- but do you know how to secure your bike, car or boat? These big ticket items are investments that you definitely want to protect. Up your game this hurricane season with some fantastic tips and tricks to help you be prepared!
If space permits you to do so, consider storing your bike in the garage or house. This won’t work for everyone, but it is one of the best and easiest ways to keep your bike safe! In areas where flooding is a concern, placing your bike on a lift of sorts and strapping it down to prevent rolling could be that extra step to reduce accidental damage.
Take pictures of your car just before a hurricane approaches. Although this seems very simple, it is vital for insurance purposes as it is harder to examine damages without having a before comparison.
store it inside
pick the best location
If you are storing your bike outside, invest in a bike cover or wrap your bike with a tarp - this will protect your bike from wind, rain and small debris. Avoid parking near or under trees as well as power lines, these have the potential to cause a major inconvenience if they fall on top of your motorcycle. It is recommended that you park near a sturdy wall such as your house, this will help to minimize wind trauma and offer support, so that your bike does not topple over.
protect your engine
Cover your air cleaners and exhaust. The extra protection will prevent water from getting into your engine which can cause problems down the line. If you have any custom pieces, consider removing and storing them safely in your house.
fill your tank
Ensure that you fill your tank before the hurricane arrives, it’s important to be prepared and have a plan after the hurricane subsides. 6 Island Property News • Hurricane Season 2021 • www.ipn.bm
find the spare key
Store copies of your car’s registration and insurance documents inside your home in a dry and safe place. It is also advised to make copies of this information and make sure you have the spare key so, if in the event you are separated from your vehicle or family, they can have access to the car.
fill up your tank
Once again, gas is a must for hurricane readiness, we recommend filling up your tank prior to the hurricane. After the hurricane you’ll be able to get to where you need to go, without the hassle of having to find an open gas station.
find a safe location
Park your car in a safe environment where it is ideally sheltered from high winds, water and debris. A garage does help with this but if not, parking behind your house or a solid wall works too. Also, don’t forget to properly secure any car covers or tarps that you may use to cover it!
IPN’S TOP 5 TIPS from years gone by... 1. Run your portable generator every few months
Just like humans, generators need to get a little exercise every once in a while. Electrical experts agree that running your generator every few months will keep the electric starter’s battery fresh and charged. Before firing up your dusty portable generator, make sure it’s outside in a well-ventilated area to avoid breathing in harmful fumes.
2. Assess your hardware
remove anything that’s loose
The first step in hurricane readiness with boats is to well... prepare your boat. Turn off the electrical system, remove the battery and detach equipment that is moveable to prevent breakage. Things that cannot be removed such as tillers and wheels should be tied down restricting movement and ropes being used should be wrapped with a protective rope sleeve to prevent chafing.
Shut, seal and cover
Windows, doors and hatches should be sealed and the fuel lines fully shut off. Make sure to cover engine room vents and plug the stern’s exhaust pipes to prevent storm water from flooding your motor.
beware of the storm surge
Anchor lines should be 10 times the water’s depth at mooring location to counteract the effects of a storm surge. Anchor the boat with a minimum of two anchors and position the bow of the boat in the direction of prevailing winds. If you want to take it a step further, place extra fenders to protect the boat from hitting the pier or breakage of surrounding boats.
store it safely
The island has a few companies that will haul and store your boat, but if you plan to do it yourself here are a few tips to keep in mind. Never leave your boat on a davit or hydraulic lift as these can be dangerous. Instead consider storing the vessel in a storage cradle in your yard. Depending on the boats weight, consider pumping water into the bilge to hold the vessel down more securely.
Spend some time on each window, blind and door to look at all of the latches, catches and/or barrel bolts to ensure that they are secure and that they are not rusted.
3. Hurricane party ready
Host your friends so you’ve got company during the storm. Make sure there is enough space for everyone to comfortably sleep (as some storms last overnight). Ask everyone to come early to ensure they make it before the storm hits. Take some time to create that perfect playlist! Sit down and organize your favorite music into a playlist that pumps you up. Then dance the night away!
4. Check your insurance policies
The first step to being covered during a storm is to make sure that your insurance policies are up to date. If you’ve purchased new outdoor furniture or completed renovations on your home, check that these are reflected in your policies. Rebuilding costs tend to rise over time so you should review your “sums insured” annually to ensure you have adequate coverage.
5. Power up
What would we do without our devices right?! During a storm, it can be heartbreaking for them to die when you know you can’t power them up again. With a little advance preparation you don’t have to go without. The easiest step: take the time to fully charge all your devices from phones to laptops to tablets and any external battery chargers you may have. Don’t forget to download any shows and movies from Netflix and Disney+ to keep you and the kids occupied!

sourcing bermuda’s needs - large or small! 27 years ago, the owner of our company met a Bermudian that had been purchasing quality Amish leather harnesses and carriages handcrafted in Lancaster County PA. He also inquired about feed and supplies from our sister company Stoltzfus Feed & Supply. Our friend expressed the desire that we consolidate his purchases and ship them in one container to Bermuda. Through this trust Stoltzfus Export & Supply was born and our first container sailed in September 1994. We researched the need and viability of providing not only equine supplies, like harnesses and feed, but other agricultural products as well. This caused us to create a system of sourcing, logistics, and delivery through consolidation of export containers to ship to Bermuda. Giving Stoltzfus Export & Supply the reliable ability to continually fill the needs of their partners in Bermuda on a regular basis for 27 years.
As would happen with great service, Stoltzfus Export & Supply was asked by friends in Bermuda to increase the product lines and to export additional items such as building and construction supplies and equipment, lawn and landscaping materials and equipment, and home furnishings. Stoltzfus Export & Supply now can literally supply nearly every item needed to build or run a home, farm or business. Our Export Team works hard to make sure you get the products you are looking for. The Sales Team works closely with the warehouse crew to ensure that containers are timely and packed cost effectively. We source and ship through an extensive list of sourcing networks. We have shipped items as large as an Excavator, and as small has a kitchen mixer. We are happy to research items you need on the island, locating them and working together with Best Shipping to get you your products hassle free, and provide seamless shipping, customs clearance and delivery services. Using Stoltzfus Export & Supply will save you time. We can reduce complications with shipments and help with shipments reaching your destination effectively. This will reduce risks to your product and streamline export efforts. No more hassles of researching products yourself, and hoping they get shipped to you timely and unscathed. When your product arrives here, we will determine its overall quality and check for any damage-things you don’t have to deal with! Stoltzfus Export & Supply has developed many long term customers in Bermuda and continues to find and add new products to their growing list. We want to find new and exciting ways to source Bermuda’s needs and export through consolidation of either full or partially full containers, that ship on a weekly basis to help grow Bermuda. Trust the delivery of your items for construction, landscaping, remodeling and agriculture & feed products, are all carefully packed and shipped to our friends on the island.
