TaxiBox, a mobile self-storage operator based in Melbourne, Australia, has expanded its services into the Brisbane market. The move is part of the company’s ongoing national-expansion plan.
"We are very excited to be coming to Brisbane,” co-founder Jeremy Rosen said in a company press release. “We think our colorful TaxiBox [storage containers] are just the right color for the ‘Sunshine State’ [Queensland], but more than that, we know based on our experience in Melbourne and Sydney that customers will love this revolutionary product offering in the self-storage space."
The company launched in Melbourne in August 2010 and expanded service to Sydney in December 2012. In April 2013, it added interstate moves and transportation service, with a fixed price for interstate moves across all Australian cities.
"Another fantastic opportunity for us in Queensland will be the expansion of our interstate-service offering, where someone in Melbourne or Sydney can now have their TaxiBox stored and then moved to Brisbane or vice versa,” added co-founder Ben Cohn. “It's a very unique offering in the market."
TaxiBox is noted for the taxi motif the company uses on its trucks and storage pods. Units are wrapped in bright-yellow covers that feature black-and-white checkered striping synonymous with yellow taxi cabs. The covers also feature the company’s marketing slogan in a graphical display: “We Deliver, You Pack, We Store.”
