What our customers are saying

Why we're Alabama's most trusted storm shelter manufacturer

I've had a shelter from Safe-T-Shelter for about 10 years in the garage of my current home. So as we were planning our build of our new home we upgraded the shelter and built it into the plans. Shelter room off of bedroom. The team did an awesome job building and doing the installation that was far from easy. Would highly recommend. My brother even has one of the outdoor versions at his house.
We are extremely happy with our storm shelter, the installation was very professional quickly installed in less than an hour and they made it look easy. So thankful to have a place to go when the storms come our way!
I have one of these shelters in my garage. In fact, it's the second one because I had one installed in my previous house as well. Secure, well made, great customer service. I love being able to go to my shelter without getting out in the weather. Great for people with limited mobility and easy for people with furbabies!
We had ours delivered yesterday. The men that came were very professional and friendly and courteous. They did a great job. The storm shelter looks great. Thanks for a job well done
The guys showed up as scheduled and had my shelter installed in just over an hour. They were very professional about the install and even wiped down and vacuumed out the shelter before they left. Joseph went over the operation of the door and all my warranty concerns. Thanks for a prefect install. It was well worth the wait... but praying we don't have to use it anytime soon! You guys are awesome!
After researching several different companies, we purchased a 4x8 shelter from Safe-T-Shelter. It was so nice to have the actual price available on their website. Everyone I spoke with was so friendly and quick to answer my many questions. Our shelter was installed last week. I had looked at many pictures, but I must say it’s even more impressive in person! The attention to detail is obvious. I am so happy to have a shelter for my family in case an emergency arises. Having peace of mind is priceless! Thank you, Safe-T-Shelter, for a great product and pleasant experience.
I've worked with this company and family on several capacities over the years. I can tell you this, there isn't anyone else in the world, I would trust more with the safety of my family. Call Dustin or Brent and you will receive transparent and honest answers to any questions or concerns, you will also have men that care about their product and care about their customer service to you. This is a locally owned small business, you may wait a little longer, but the product quality and installation will be top notch!
We purchased ours 11 years ago. This is money well spent. No more going out into the storm. Just go into the garage! Very simple process! These guys are Awesome!
We love our safe-t-shelters. The purchase process was flawless and the delivery was perfect. The shelter was placed exactly where we requested. With a family member in a wheelchair this shelter gives us peace of mind knowing we can quickly get to safety.
Of all the Shelter places we looked at, these folks are the best in my opinion. They have been specializing in building quality shelters for 25+ years. We first made the short drive to their facility and was able to see several different styles. The staff was very helpful and polite in pointing out all the options for door and seating placement. They were helpful in understanding the different features on an indoor shelter vs outdoor shelter. They clearly discussed all the associated costs, delivery, etc. They properly set your expectations on expected completion date. We had ours delivered and installed in our Detach Garage. We feel much more comfortable now having the shelter to protect us in time of need.
We just had our 4x8 foot storm shelter installed on July 22, 2021. We cannot say enough positive things about the quality, price, and customer service of this company. We have experienced several close calls with tornadoes in Chilton County during the past two years. The anxiety of not having a safe place to take shelter, especially with several small grandchildren, was more than I could handle. With this shelter, I feel such a peace of mind in knowing that we will be protected. I researched several companies, and kept coming back to Safe-T-Shelters because of their great reviews as well as their personable customer service reps who answered MANY questions for us. I highly recommend this company!

Storm Shelter Scholarship

We are excited to announce the 2021 and first recipient of our Storm Shelter Scholarship.

Landen was critically injured and lost both his parents during a tornado in 2019 in Town Creek, AL. After hearing Landen’s story we felt he would be the perfect candidate for our very first Storm Shelter Scholarship. A shelter was provided to him and his family at zero cost. This shelter will ensure that Landen will always have a safe place to go and hopefully provide him peace of mind the next time severe weather strikes. Read More
