Stash Storage, a Charleston, S.C.-based startup business specializing in valet self-storage, has hired Rivers Pearce as chief operating officer. Pearce has expertise in scalable-systems technology for client-focused services, most recently serving as a digital-marketing and tech expert at BoomTown, a Web platform for Canada- and U.S.-based real estate professionals, according to a press release.
"We are beyond thrilled to welcome Rivers officially to the Stash team,” said Tom Stevenson, co-founder of Stash. “His knowledge, experience and energy are invaluable, and we believe he’ll help give us a significant advantage as we pursue our overall goals."
Pearce joined BoomTown in 2010, helping it grow to more than 300 employees and 3,000 clients. “In this day and age, no industry is immune to the shifting tides of consumer behavior, so I don’t think it should come as a surprise that storage is in dire need of an upgraded consumer experience.”
Similar to other valet-storage providers, Stash uses an online platform that allows customers to schedule item pickup, maintain a visual catalog of stored belongings, and schedule delivery of items to their home. It offers two primary packages. The Declutter plan allows users to store individual items ranging from boxes to large articles like couches and appliances, while the Bulk plan offers designated space at a flat rate. Monthly prices for Declutter range from $10 to $50, depending on the size of the item, while Bulk begins at $100 per month, according to the company website.
Customers aren’t allowed to visit the storage warehouse but can manage their belongings and schedule return deliveries through a photographic dashboard. Delivery of items from storage is $15, plus $5 for each item returned. Most deliveries occur between 24 and 48 hours of scheduling.
“Stash is more than just a storage company; we’re building a brand that will become synonymous with the benefits of clutter-free living,” Pearce said.
The company serves the Tri-County Area of Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester Counties.
