Back in 2015, CEO Sarah Selhi realized that her relative would be spending $12,000 for two years of storage at a traditional self-storage facility. Not only was it a lot of money to spend storing, but her belongings were worth a fraction of that. What if she had found a neighbour’s home instead? The cost would have been far less while helping out a neighbour as well. After all, why build more buildings to store stuff while there are already existing spaces all around us? That “waste not” obsession became SpaceiShare.
SpaceiShare is a trusted, community-focused company that makes sharing fun. We exist to create technology that simplifies the process of finding and acquiring storage and parking space, while providing the coverage and liability required to give each and every user peace of mind.
