I need space: This sibling-powered startup gives solutions for an extra home space

No renovation required, just your smartphone.

If you have a small apartment and don't have enough room to keep your stuff, you know there are several self-storage facilities willing to do that for you. But if you are too busy and you simply don't have the time to go to the facility to deposit or pickup your things, why don’t you try Spacebox.

Spacebox was born from brothers Lewis and Stuart Cerne’s desire to give people in Hong Kong a tool to help them transform their homes from being cluttered to being more spacious. They aim to trigger a revolution in the way people use space.

Founded in September 2014, Spacebox allows users get extra space in a convenient way at a very accessible price. Spacebox tears the barriers down from the traditional self-storage which limits users the access from their things. “You can place anything in Spacebox: your bicycle, books, sports gear, winter clothes, memorabilia, and children toys, and after they are out of the home you can access them anytime from your phone,” said Lewis.

Changing how people interact with their things, Spacebox works with standard strong boxes being delivered to users upon each order of “space”, before the team collects the packed boxes for storage. When clients want to retrieve items stored in Spacebox, all they need to do is access the web app through their phones, can browse their inventory to select items they need, and request their belongings to be sent back at a specific time.

As the company is currently seed funded, Lewis said that they will be looking for an additional fundraiser in Q1 2015. Lewis adds that their funding has come from a group of private investors.

In the future, the Spacebox team targets to achieve a variety of plans to boost their technology, branding, and promotion. Lewis adds that the key challenge for them is-fine tuning their message to customers so they can see the value Spacebox delivers.
