Made more than $1.7 million in a week by selling survival bunkers. What makes this company different?

The bunker business is hotter than ever this year. “Day and night, my phone is ringing off the hook from people across the country looking to buy a bunker.” – said Ron Hubbard, the owner of Atlas Survival Shelters, a bunker-building business based in Texas.

Before starting his bunker business in 2011, Hubbard worked building custom iron doors for 30 years. Now, he doesn’t even know all of his customers’ full names or where their bunkers will be located because they ship to a local third party.

It’s all pretty discreet because people don’t necessarily want to announce they’re buying a bunker or its whereabouts. Customers don’t finance their bunkers either — they’re plunking down cash upfront and in full via wire transfer.

Made $1.7 million in sales within one week.

Atlas Survival Shelters’ bunkers on offer range from 100 square feet in size for around $50,000, to over 10,000 square feet for close to $5,000,000. People are snapping up everything they have, from in-stock standard models to custom-built designs.

Hubbard credits the increase in sales to the reality that people are scared of what’s happening in the world right now. Many are buying a bunker to be somewhere safe to hide regardless of what the future holds, as a survival Plan B.

The lion’s share of their business comes to them via our YouTube Channel, which has close to 350,000 subscribers and is typically how people first learn about them.

Always ready for any customer

They have military-grade nuclear, biological, and chemical air filtration systems, a mudroom and decontamination shower, air and gas-tight waterproof doors, and power sources. Beyond that, customers can outfit and design their place however they like, so it feels like a real home.

Custom jobs typically take two to three months, and larger projects that require poured in place concrete can take over six months to complete. The company has designed lots of custom bunkers, many that are 2,000 to 3,000 square feet. The largest they have sold to date was a whopping 4,000 square feet.

For customers looking for a bit extra, they offer the Platinum Series, which begins at $300 per square foot, with 24 inches of under the floor storage and built-in water tanks. These bunkers have spacious master bedrooms with full baths and walk-in showers, as well as enough area for dining rooms, game rooms, and gun rooms. They also offer high-end upgrades such as stainless steel appliances, ceramic-tiled backsplashes, granite countertops, oak flooring, and sliding barn doors.

Ron Hubber shares: “All of our platinum bunkers really pack a “wow” factor. I mean, who doesn’t want to have a secret passageway to a secret escape tunnel that leads to a secret bunker?”
