StoraBora.com, a Canada-based, peer-to-peer self-storage marketplace that enables people in need of storage and parking to find available space from businesses and residents in their local area, has launched in North America. The free online tool aspires to help consumers find local storage anywhere in the world, according to a press release.
Those with extra storage space can create a listing with their location, monthly fee and up to 20 pictures. Recommended storage use is for collectibles, furniture, general household items, seasonal decorations and sports equipment, as well as storage or parking for vehicles, including RVs, the release stated.
Those searching for storage can filter by several options including basement space, commercial storage, garden space, metal storage containers, parking stalls, RV parking, secure space inside a home and storage buildings. The website lists all 13 Canadian provinces and the 50 U.S. states, in addition to Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C., in its searchable geographic database. When users click on a state or province, they can select from a dropdown menu of cities to see where storage or parking space is available in their area.
The company was launched in part to slow urban sprawl and the development of new self-storage facilities “that take up additional land and use unneeded non-renewable energy,” the release stated. A portion of the company’s proceeds will be donated to the development of car-charging stations and other green initiatives across North America.
StoraBora was created by Stephanie Laue after she became a single parent and was in need of money, the release stated. Laue turned her garage into available storage space and made $300 per month, according to the company website.
