How Does On Demand Storage Work?

If you’re new to on demand storage, you might have a few questions pertaining to what the service is all about. While most people know exactly what self-storage encompasses, that’s not always the case with on demand storage since it incorporates so many different amenities. It’s heavily populated, metropolitan areas like New York City, Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, etc., that are better versed in the on demand economy (Think DoorDash, Uber & Peapod) and how it has transformed commercial behavior and demand. Just think about it. Nowadays everyone is seeking convenience, whether you live in a big city or not. And since we are all connected at all times thanks to the prevalence of WiFi, smartphones, tablets, and laptops, it only makes sense to integrate technology with businesses of all types–including storage!  

What Does On Demand Storage Bring To The Table?

Above all, on demand storage delivers convenience to its users. The business model is structured so the customer has nothing to worry about. There’s no need to rent a truck or fret over navigating a large vehicle through busy roads and (for city folk) hoards of pedestrians. There’s no need to hire movers or try your best to convince friends and family to lend a hand during the loading and unloading process. There’s no need to waste time and gas driving back and forth from a storage unit. All of that (& more!) is handled for you by the on demand storage company.

How Do I Get Started Utilizing On Demand Storage?

Great question! Here’s how to get on your way with the on demand storage experts at Zippboxx.

Since we’re configured to be used as simply as possible, all you need to do is visit our website to get started. From our Pricing Page, first select the length term (3 months or 12 months) you need storage for. This is listed right underneath where it says Select a Plan. After that, scroll down and choose the storage space size required to fit the belongings you’re intending to put into storage. The storage space sizes available to choose from range between a 5’ x 5’ space, to a 10’ x 20’ space. Unsure of how much storage space you need? Go here for guidance!

From there users are sent to our customer portal. On the first page of the customer portal visitors are prompted to select how many bins or boxes they need, and how many bulk items are going into storage. The next page then gives users the choice to order packing supplies (like bubble wrap, tape and mattress bags) which are dropped off complementary to their door. Next users are asked to fill in their address and contact information along with any special delivery instructions. Last but not least, a date and time range need to be selected for the pickup and submitted. Then the user is all set and will shortly receive a confirmation email!
