Stow Simple, a startup business specializing in valet self-storage, has launched service in the Miami, Fla., metropolitan market. The company uses an online platform that allows customers to schedule item pickup, maintain a visual catalog of stored bins and bulky items, and schedule delivery of items to their home.
Similar to other valet-style storage operators, Stow Simple offers by-the-bin storage targeted at urban residents who don’t have adequate home storage. Items are stored in a secure warehouse off limits to customers. Pricing starts at $28 per month for up to four bins, with a minimum stay of three months. Additional bins are $7 per month, and individual pricing on oversized items ranges between $7 and $20. Customers with larger storage needs can also pay $126 per month for 160 cubic feet of warehouse space or $175 per month for 256 cubic feet, according to the company website. Delivery fees begin at $20, but additional charges may apply for time and labor, depending on the volume of belongings being returned.
The company was founded by siblings Jorge and Silvia Camps and launched with a soft opening to a small service area in June. “We are on a mission to make storage easy,” Jorge Camps, who also serves as head of operations, said in a press release. The company was runner-up in this year’s “Miami Herald” Business Plan Challenge, an annual contest honoring business innovators in South Florida.
As part of its service mix, Stow Simple has partnered with the Miami Rescue Mission to make it easy for customers to donate unwanted items to charity. Donation bags are provided to customers when the company drops off its storage bins. Customers who wish to contribute deposit unwanted clothing into the bags, and Stow Simple delivers the items to the mission as a tax-deductible donation, according to the “Miami Herald.”
The company joins valet-storage operator My Box Valet in serving the Miami market. My Box Valet launched its business earlier this year. Stow Simple currently serves the South Florida communities of Brickell, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, downtown Miami, Key Biscayne, and Miami Beach, the release stated.
