SpareFoot, an online marketplace for self-storage, is offering relief to those affected by the devastating floods in Colorado. The Austin, Texas-based company will donate one month of storage to businesses, families and individuals who need temporary space to store and protect their belongings in the aftermath of last week’s flooding.
The company will mail a check to cover the renters’ first month of self-storage fees, up to $100, for any facility within a 75-mile radius of Boulder, Colo. Customers must move in by Oct. 16. Additional details about the offer are available at SpareFoot.com.
“The images of the destruction in Colorado are heartbreaking. Our thoughts go out to the communities that have been hit hard by this disaster,” said CEO Chuck Gordon. “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 people in Colorado recover from the floods.”
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. With a network of more than 6,500 storage facilities ranging from mom-and-pop operations to real estate investment trusts, the company reaches prospective storage renters though partnerships with brands including SelfStorage.com, Apartments.com and Penske Truck Rental.
