SpareFoot, an online marketplace for self-storage consumers, has added a search function to help users find storage facilities that offer moving-truck rentals or free use of a truck at move-in. The new website feature is different than discounts already offered to consumers through SpareFoot’s partnership with Penske or instant quotes on full moves provided through the platform by Bellhops, according to a press release.
"Often, storage consumers don't know until it's too late that many storage facilities offer a free or discounted truck rental," said SpareFoot CEO Chuck Gordon. "In fact, over 30 percent of the facilities in our network have trucks available to rent. Consumers can check two big items off their to-do list with one vendor, which streamlines the process and can save them both time and money."
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 12,000 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 and Penske Truck Rental.
