The problem of having no space.
It all started when Edward moved into his dorm at UBC as a freshman. After living the typical student life for a year, he realized just how many items he had accumulated — textbooks, clothing, appliances, sporting equipment, club materials, free swag, and more. He tried looking for a student-friendly storage solution, but to his surprise, found no such service. From asking friends to renting self-storage units, everything was either complicated, expensive, or just plain inconvenient.
For Jensen, the storage problem came from a different angle. He grew tired of walking past dumpsters at UBC overflowing with perfectly reusable items, and the negative impact that it caused on the environment. He knew that many of those items were being thrown away simply due to students not having any space, and the inconvenience of storing with traditional storage companies.
Both brothers knew that something needed to be done. The two of them got together and started to ideate, envisioning a way to tackle this storage dilemma.
Introducing a new way of storage.
From Edward and Jensen’s frustration comes Storagehotel, a full-service storage company that simplifies the entire storage process. Instead of burdening the customer with logistics and fees like traditional self-storage companies, we believe that students have more important things to focus on. That’s why our service was designed from the ground up to make student storage as uncomplicated as possible. We pick up, store, and return your items without you ever having to leave campus. We even provide you with free storage boxes and packing tape! Built for UBC students, by UBC students.
