The Disrupters: Moving & Storage Solutions Redefined
This post is dedicated to the disrupters; the companies and people who are reinventing and re-imagining moving, cleaning, and storage solutions to make the process more time efficient, economical, and sustainable.
New companies and technology seem to be popping up everyday so we thought we would take a moment to share our discoveries with you. So before you even think about lifting a finger (or a mop or box for that matter), we’ve made a list of our favorite companies that are using smart technology, stellar customer service, and providing affordable rates to transform storage solutions and the moving experience.
If you’re transitioning from one home to the next and need storage solutions or simply want to declutter your current home, Shed packs and catalogs your stuff, stores it (you can even visit it) and delivers it when you’re ready.
Say goodbye to buying boxes and bubble wrap, organizing, packing, renting trucks, asking friends for help, wasting a whole weekend, going to a storage unit, and potentially damaging your stuff! Shed offers hassle-free and full service storage at self-storage pricing.
We’re excited to offer a discount for Shed’s services. Receive your first-month of storage free along with a 2 hour sort-it decluttering experience (over $200 value). Call 1 855.708.7433 or visit helloshed.com and mention promo code: COMPASS.
