SpareFoot makes renting self-storage easy.
Its free marketplace lets customers find and reserve storage units online. SpareFoot has the largest inventory of storage units in the U.S., with a network of more than 6,500 facilities ranging from mom-and-pop to publicly traded REIT. It reaches millions of people who need storage through exclusive partnerships with brands like SelfStorage.com, Apartments.com and Penske Truck Rental. SpareFoot brings consumers and facilities together to deliver the most convenient and enjoyable storage experience possible online, offline, and via mobile.
Founded in 2008 by then-UCLA students Chuck Gordon and Mario Feghali (aka Chario), SpareFoot originated as a person-to-person storage website that helped people rent extra space for storage in private residences. It has since evolved into the world’s largest and simplest marketplace for self-storage. SpareFoot also provides leading web marketing solutions for storage operators.
