Safecastle Shelter

Safecastle: The prepper's choice since 2002

M. Brooks: "The service is incredible; each time I have contacted Safecastle, I get an immediate response. The owner's always been kind, considerate and very professional and stands behind his word. The membership perks--phenomenal. Safecastle is really a ministry to those trying to prepare ... truly a first rate outfit, selling quality products at a reasonable price, owned and operated by a man who has a servant’s heart."
William J.: "... getting 25% off MH cases wasn't enough. Now you're getting me over 50% off this purchase! You've saved me a bunch of money. Thanks for your outstanding shop and such great prices. Ya'll have one of the greatest operations going … and believe me, I DO shop around."
Jeffrey P.: "Excellent customer service is so rare these days that when you experience it you are somewhat surprised. As a fellow business owner, I certainly appreciate and applaud the manner in which you run your business. Being able to resolve this matter at 9:48 on a Friday evening is simply incredible."

M.M.: "I just want you to know how awesome and fast your shipping and service is. I think you already know this, but it doesn't hurt to mention it :) There are a couple of other major online stores that I placed orders over 6 weeks ago that have yet to ship. You all must be very hard working folk. Thanks!"

Dave W: "Thank you so much for running a store that provides excellent customer service andsome I didn't even  sells quality products at reasonable prices. The Steelhead Adventure medical kits came today and I am once again impressed. I have shopped at other preparedness websites and I have yet to come across one that is as responsive to customers and potential customers as yours is. I have sent emails a couple times to you asking for more information when trying to compare products. You have always answered my questions fully as well as answering think to ask. Keep up the good work."

C.W.: "Wow! You guys are even greater than the greatness you have already proven to me!!"

J.H.: "Great customer support! Amazing deals and bonuses! Thank you."

Craig: "Wow, what a sale! Thanks!"

Steve: "You have very good customer service and I am recommending your company to everyone I know ... I wish all business people I deal with were this good. You are sure to be a continued success."

AR: "God bless you, sir, for helping people put a little food security into their future. I was pleased with the purchases made with your company. You are good people, and I'm proud to know you."

Be ready & save big: 

Real preppers like a little rhyme (or is it reason?) in their chowder. We've had three different contests now. See our past winners below.

What's a limerick? See this.

An example of an apocalimerick :

There was a wise prepper named Catherine

Who saw the dark clouds a gatherin’

    she joined up with Safecastle

    prepped quickly, no hassle

then stayed dry when the stuff started splattering.

My pile of prep goods keeps growing.

The pace of the growth is not slowing.

Oh why do I do it?

To help me get through it

when most of the world ends up glowing!

The war drums were beating and fast.

We finished our preps up at last.

We sent up a prayer

for those whom we care,

then sheltered our kin from the blast.

2017 Week 3 Winner, Mar. 11: submitted by Gord Day ...

I've finally paid off all my debts

There's finally more dollars for preps

From bullets to beans

and all in between,

I'm safe from the apocalypse.

2017 Week 2 Winner, Mar. 4: submitted by grower ...

I went to the store to buy beans

Ended up with a whole lot more things

Bandaids and bullets,

MREs and some seeds,

Being ready costs more than it seems.

There once was a Mommy of three,

prepared as a prepper could be.

But the item most prized

she soon realized, 

was a year's stockpile of TP

Far away ‘neath the bright midnight sun

Our prepping is quite well begun

We’re stowing our stores, and fishing the shores

Getting ready for all that may come.

The fear of disaster is spreading

No one knows where the country is heading

Have matches on hand

And food in the can

And can't have too much wool bedding

Disasters are coming, oh my

big asteroids drop from the sky

volcanoes are steaming,

al-Qaeda is scheming,

and there's a Blood Moon drawing nigh

I had a large store of dried food.

With meat, cheese and vegetables-stewed.

I even prepped fodder,

but forgot about water.

How giardia will dampen your mood!

I once feared a massive EMP

Welfare zombies without EBT

I filled up the larder

Bought items to barter

Now my family won’t speak to me.

On women nor wine,

For doomsday himself he did save.

There once was a pretty young thang

who wore a foil hat while she sang

Her home underground

had beans all around

and wires that when tripped would go bang!


Mike fell for her coz she was smart,

plus her bottom was shaped like a heart.

She could field strip a Barrett

and grow a mean carrot

and her fifty yard grouping was art.

LG.: "Wow is all I can definitely made a customer for life and I will be posting how well you have taken care of this issue on facebook ...I  will also be spreading the word to all of my biker and survival friends ... I'm still at a loss for words other than thank you very much and I am sure karma will be giving back to you two-fold.

Gail S.:
"Your Customer Service is amazing. I've never seen anything like it. Thank you for that and for your excellent products and deals."

As a 15-year veteran of the customer service industry, I have always worked to provide my customers with World Class Service. As a result, I hold the yardstick VERY high when I find myself in the role of befuddled customer. In the 18 hours since I became a customer, Safecastle has gone light years beyond my every expectation. Quick response to my emails, willingness to explore all possible resolutions, and the way they took OWNERSHIP of my issues (no matter how small) have all astounded me. I honestly wish I had found Safecastle sooner, so I could have already told everyone who would listen where they can find truly World Class Service."

N.S.: "Wow. Thanks for the quick response. I must say, Jack Spirko's endorsement of your business caused me to choose you over any competitors, and he is spot on about your customer service. Thanks so much!"

Judie: "Thank you for making shopping so easy ... and the sale prices so good!"

Adam: "Thank you! You're running a great business."

Ed F: "I wanted to thank you for the way you run your business and the service you provide. It is a pleasure to do business with you. You treat customers like friends and it is appreciated. My last purchase, the AEB Ox, happened because your personal recommendation in an email got me to look more carefully at it. Thanks."

Al M. (via BBB): "This is the best customer service I've received from any company anywhere. Fast service. Pricing is always fair and sometimes great! They do what they say they will do and have never let me down. This is a world class organization."

Janet: "I have found it a great experience doing business with your company, not only today, but also in the past. It is a pleasure to find a company today that takes care of their customers. You present great products and offer very nice savings opportunities to your membership. I have shared this message with my friends and they have place orders and were pleased. Thank you and may your business be blessed."
