So far, so good for Terry Drayton and his new startup.
Storrage, a personalized delivery service that picks up items and stores them in a warehouse, is growing quickly after debuting this past November. The Seattle-based startup has quadrupled its warehouse space, doubled its customer base, added delivery on Sundays and expanded the number of zip codes serviced.
Drayton, who told us that he wants his company to be the “Uber of storage,” said he’s learned that customers are using the service to support their lifestyles rather than just reducing clutter or becoming more organized.
Drayton found that people are moving rarely-used items out of their houses to maximize their living space and create room to park a car, entertain friends, let college roommates move in or have private Tango lessons, for example.
“To enable that for customers is a great feeling,” said Drayton, who previously founded HomeGrocer.com and Count Me In.
As a result, Storrage changed its tagline from “out of sight with a peace of mind,” to, “your space is for living.” The company is still fine-tuning the service before it plans to launch a franchise system and expand into more states.
Storrage has raised $1.3 million from Seattle angel investors such as Rudy Gadre, Andy Liu, Serena Glover and others. Check out our earlier story on the company for more details on its pricing and logistical details, or watch this video:
