Q: Do your prices include delivery and installation?
A: Our prices do not include delivery or installation. Every location is different and prices vary from location to location. We will work directly with you to provide up-front pricing and competitive options.

Q: Do you install in my area?
A: DEFCON Underground delivers and installs underground bunkers in the entire United States, including Alaska and Hawaii. Delivery charged and installation fees will be impacted in areas unreachable by ground shipping.

Q: Can you attach to my existing basement?
A: Yes, we can hook up directly to your existing foundation wall. It is our goal to provide easy access to your bunker in case of an emergency situation. However, if the owner chooses, we also offer off-site entrances for privacy purposes.

Q: Do you use any outside contractors?
A: No, we build, deliver, and install your underground bunker to reduce the number of people who know about your new bunker’s location. In the event that we need to use an outside agency, your privacy will be our highest priority. We will sub-contract all vendors in your area under a different company name. This name is not associated with any bunker or survival company. 

Q: Will we have to get a permit from the city?
A: Every city is different, so each home owner will bear the responsibility of contacting his or her local city officials. In most situations, a permit will not be required. In the event that a permit is required, we will help you through the process. We are familiar in dealing with city development officials and the codes associated with these projects.

Q: Is there a paper trail associated with my Underground Bunker?
A: No. Shortly after your unit is installed, we will destroy all records associated with the location of the build. The only records we will retain will be for accounting purposes. Should you choose, you may use a P.O. Box for correspondences.

Q: Will my bunker be ready to live in after the installation?
A: After installation of your bunker, you will be ready to take your survival preparations and loved ones inside and begin your life underground.

Q: Can I put a generator inside the bunker?
A: Yes, you can. All of our bunkers are designed with a sealed and ventilated room specifically for this purpose. 

Q: Are bunkers dark inside them?
A:  No, in fact they are very bright inside. We utilize the latest technology in energy efficient LED lighting.

Q: How long does it take to install my new Underground Shelter?
A: Most units can be installed in 2-5 days from delivery to completion. Once you are finished selecting your unit and optional upgrades, we will let you know the time-frame for your installation.

Q: How deep can your units be buried?
A: Our bunkers are buried anywhere from 36”-72” deep. During our on-site visit, we will be able to locate the ideal depth for your bunker.

Q: Do you finance?
A: YES we do. Financing a bunker is a very hard procedure and most banks will not lend. However, we have obtained a few lenders who are willing to work with you dependent on your credit score and your bunker’s type and location.
