Marketplace for underground bunkers lets buyers prepare for the end of the world

Property & Construction

Bunker Network is a marketplace that helps connect local underground buildings with those hoping to protect their families if the worst happens.

Although the threat of nuclear warfare dissipated somewhat with the end of the Cold War, there are still plenty of potential modern global crises — terrorist attacks, disease pandemics or financial meltdowns — that continue to sustain demand for protective underground bunkers. Recognizing this fact, Bunker Network is a marketplace that helps connect local underground buildings with those hoping to protect their families if the worst happens.

The site is a members’ network that details the existence of ex-military and privately-built underground bunkers in countries around the world, connecting sellers with buyers. For an initial charge of USD 47 and an annual subscription fee of USD 27, members can post and browse listings that detail the size, amenities and rough location (within a few miles). Each bunker is secure and typically already stocked in the case it needs to be used in an emergency. The site lists a number of reasons why such bunkers could provide a vital sanctuary in modern times — from critical resource shortages to “superintelligent AI”. For now, the site predominantly serves those looking for bunkers in the US, Canada, UK and Australia, although it also has listings for other countries. Users can also even look for others to help build new bunkers.

Much like Garrison Bespoke’s bulletproof business suit, such a service may be of limited appeal to the average consumer, but provides protection where otherwise none would exist. Are there other products that could be designed to help citizens if social infrastructure collapses?
