Whatstorage, an online self-storage marketplace, is set for an official launch in April, offering price-comparison shopping for consumers looking for storage in the United Kingdom. The website will allow users to shop by price, size and distance, as well as enable unit reservations. It will also let users view differences between storage operators, according to a press release.
Consumers can also tailor searches based on need, including business or personal storage, and moving and storage solutions, according to the company website.
“A lot of the time, when people find themselves in need of self-storage, there is a sense of urgency or panic,” said company representative Matt Taylor. “Consequently, people make bad decisions based on emotion rather than logic, which could potentially cost them a lot of money at a time when finances could be particularly tight.
“The idea behind our site is to take away all the hassle and stress of finding self-storage and highlighting the best deal possible relative to the location, length of time the storage is required and a number of various factors,” Taylor continued. “In one particular example, we found a potential saving of over 63 percent. We aim to be the number one U.K. website for self-storage prices within the next year, and we are determined to keep providing our customers with the best possible deals available.”
Based in Bournemouth, England, Whatstorage was founded by an online marketing expert in conjunction with the owner of a moving company, the release stated.
