Texas moving and storage company Daryl Flood Relocation & Logistics has launched My Storage Hero (MSH), a valet-style self-storage division serving the Austin, Texas, market. The service operates via an online platform through which customers can schedule an initial pickup of items for storage, manage photo inventories of their belongings, and then book return delivery of items when needed, according to a press release.
Unlike valet-storage companies that offer plastic bins for storage, MSH uses large wooden vaults. The containers come in three standard sizes from 35 to 300 square feet, with pricing from $75 to $179 per month. Customized larger storage crates are also available. Initial pickup of items costs $125, and there’s a three-month minimum rental period, according to the company website.
Items are stored at an MSH-owned warehouse in Round Rock, north of Austin. Customers can schedule the return of their items online but can’t retrieve them directly from the facility. There’s a flat return fee of $99. Most return requests can be executed within 48 hours.
“This new brand is really an extension of the services we have been perfecting for 36 years,” said Kelly O’Connor, senior vice president of Daryl. “If the launch in Austin proves successful, we will consider expanding to our other Texas markets in the next few years.”
Founded in 1982, Daryl has warehouse facilities in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio, Texas. It offers local, long-distance and international relocation services in addition to warehouse storage.
