November 01, 2012 // Franchising.com // Washington, D.C. - Today, nearly half of the country is dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. The storm’s path of destruction has affected more than 50 million people in 23 states. According to some government estimates, Hurricane Sandy’s winds were responsible for more than $7 billion in damages and economic loss.
“For many people, dealing with the clean-up is the worst part,” said Nick Friedman, president of College Hunks Hauling Junk, a nationally franchised junk removal and moving company headquartered in Tampa, Fla. “Regardless of the type of storm, hurricane, Nor’easter, tornado—or a devastating combination like Sandy—they leave behind flood waters, broken tree limbs, shattered glass and a tremendous amount of debris.”
Friedman added that he’s seeing many households call on College Hunks Moving, a subsidiary of College Hunks Hauling Junk, to pack up many of their belongings and move them safely into storage while repairs and recovery are under way.
“The teams at our local College Hunks Hauling Junk franchises are available to assist in everything from downed branches to flood-damaged furniture and belongings,” said Friedman.
“Getting back to normal will take some time, but we are here to make it as stress-free as possible,” he added, pointing out that College Hunks Hauling Junk is working with local and regional disaster restoration companies to help them handle the workload.
According to the company’s CEO and Co-Founder, Omar Soliman, “We’re generally a pretty light-hearted company, but this is serious. The magnitude of the storm, the damage it caused, and the lives it affected are all serious matters. And we’re here to offer some serious help.”
