SpareFoot, an online marketplace that streamlines the rental process for self-storage customers, is offering relief to those affected by the devastating fire and explosion that occurred April 17 in West, Texas. The Austin, Texas-based company will donate a month of free storage to businesses, families and individuals who need temporary space to store and protect their belongings.
While the offer lasts, SpareFoot will mail a check to cover a victim’s first month of self-storage rent up to $100. The check will cover rental of a storage unit within a 100-mile radius of West. Customers must move in by May 18, 2013. Additional details about the offer are available on the SpareFoot website.
“As fellow Texans and neighbors, our thoughts and prayers go out to the community of West, Texas, in the midst of this horrific tragedy. While human lives obviously are the most important consideration in a situation like this, we at SpareFoot hope our offer of free storage space can help the people of West recover from this trauma,” said CEO Chuck Gordon.
Founded in 2008, SpareFoot.com helps consumers find and reserve self-storage units, with comparison shopping tools that show real-time availability and exclusive deals. The company also provides Web-marketing solutions for storage facility owners and operators including AdNetwork, SiteBuilder and GeoPages.
