This is going to be a quick blog about a problem that so many of us have, and how a guy by the name of Daniel Cobb (Co-Founder, Operations) was the visionary on a better way.
How it started.
In 2010, Daniel Cobb was getting ready to jet off on a six-month sabbatical in Vietnam and needed to store his stuff. Daniel started shopping around online for a storage unit. He quickly realized that finding a quality storage unit that met his needs and high standards was no easy task. After hours of web research and phone calls, and several visits across town, Daniel came to the conclusion that there has to be a better way to find a storage unit, especially when time is of the essence.
After searching the web for a tool that would allow him to quickly compare quality facilities, Daniel realized that there was a need that was not being met. From there, Daniel has been slowly working to put the team and design together, and now that vision has become a reality in StorageUnits.com.

Hours of your precious time is often required to find storage unit companies, research whether they are secure and highly rated by customers, and find out whether they provide the services that meet your needs. All of this is doubly true when you move to a new city or community!
