Hurricanes are among the most dangerous and destructive storm systems in the world. Each year, the heavy rain, strong winds, floods, and coastal storm surges pose a significant threat to lives and properties. Each year, Sunbelt Rentals, the premier rental equipment company in North America, is there when the inevitability of this time comes. “We’re not just machines,” a Sunbelt Rentals employee said in a video produced by Wright Creative Productions that documented the company’s efforts in 2017. Whether it was the removal of thick sheets of drywall, white popcorn ceiling remnants, jagged wood two-by-fours, and scattered pieces of broken tree limbs, this video showed Sunbelt’s employees how their work affects the people they help.

We wanted to replicate a storm; Sunbelt provided everything — the truck, the lights, even the water (for rain).
