Share Article

RovingBox, a Seattle-based startup, is transforming the dynamics of the self-storage industry by creating a 'shared marketplace' that enables people to rent storage space from homeowners owners in their area. - Earn money from the extra space in your garage

We are excited to help homeowners earn extra income, while providing renters with inexpensive and environmentally friendly storage options in their neighborhood.

RovingBox has launched a new service to benefit those who find traditional self-storage options too inflexible and expensive. The RovingBox website ( helps match local homeowners whom have unused storage space in their garage, attic or basement with people who need storage space for their personal items.

"RovingBox provides a great way for homeowners to earn passive income by simply renting out a corner of their garage to people who need storage space for their stuff. For the homeowner, it makes good financial sense, and renters benefit by having a storage space that is often more affordable and flexible than they’d otherwise get by signing a lease on a traditional storage unit." says Zachary Price, Co-founder of RovingBox. “With the rise of the new ‘Sharing Economy,’ we saw that the Self-Storage industry could use a makeover. Our service upends traditional self-storage business models by creating a marketplace where people can list and rent unused space. We are excited to help homeowners earn extra income every, while providing renters with inexpensive and environmentally friendly storage options in their neighborhood.”

How works is simple. All homeowners have to do is create a listing on which includes photos and a description of the space for rent, plus and what their "House Rules" are (what a renter is able to store and when they can access their stored goods). Those needing storage or parking can search the RovingBox for storage options in their area and then request a booking. The space owner is then able to review the request and discuss all details and concerns with the renter before confirming the request. Getting paid is easy; once the home owner just accepts the offer and the renter moves their things into the space, RovingBox charges the renter’s credit card and deposits the rent payments into the homeowners banking or PayPal account.

To establish security and maintain trust between renters and homeowners, offers:

  •     A public rating system on which RovingBox customers rate each other based on a set of criteria.
  •     A messaging system that enables people to chat and get to know each other before confirming a space rental. The system is also used for requesting rental space access.
  •     A three-day refund guarantee. A renter can get his or her money refunded even after making a booking if he or she does not feel comfortable with the renter or the space itself after the first contact.
