The New Year Brings Fresh Ideas to Self Storage

It’s 2011 and already big ideas are making waves in the storage industry.

Entrepreneur Daniel Hughes has come up with a new idea that will revolutionize and change the way self storage thinks and operates. Instead of hauling all of your belonging to a site, why not just ship it off instead? While other similar ideas like ClutterFreeBox and StorageByTheBox have online presences, StorageByMail seems to be garnering the attention of industry and non-industry leaders alike.

Hughes' tiny New York apartment and the expensive costs of traditional storage space inspired the idea. After years of development and deciding to put his full time into the project, StorageByMail was born.

What do you think? Will storage consumers adopt this time and cost saving trend or will the comfort of the familiar make up their hearts and minds. Only time will tell.
