MakeSpace is an on-demand storage company set out to make storage more convenient and consumer-friendly, creating an affordable, tech-enabled storage experience that’s reshaping the industry.
MakeSpace is taking the struggle out of storage—and reinventing an antiquated industry in the process.
MakeSpace was founded in 2013 by Rahul Gandhi and Sam Rosen. The company is headquartered in New York, New York.
MakeSpace has designed a hassle-free experience that allows people to store and retrieve their belongings on-demand, so they can skip the whole schlep-to-a-storage-unit thing. Customers pay only for the space they need, and schedule pickups, drop-offs, and other services through an app and digital photo inventory.
MakeSpace costs about the same as local self-storage options, but includes extra services and supplies that typically cost self-storage customers hundreds of dollars more. In 2019, it added 20 new markets, bringing the total to 31 in North America, and doing so in a cost-effictive way.
MakeSpace is backed by Iron Mountain, 8VC, Upfront Ventures, Maywic Select Investments, Ten Eighty, Provenio Capital and others. The company raised $55M ($45M in equity and $10M in debt funding) on May 21, 2020. This brings MakeSpace's total funding to $142.6M to date.
