Can’t bear to get rid of your old stuff?

We know the feeling. Old letters, photos of families and friends some of which you no longer speak to and haven’t seen for more than 20 years. Small ornaments and cute little vintage dolls. Clothes you don’t wear and stuff that reminds you of your first crush. Even your old little doll house. Not to mention bundles of birthday, Valentine and Christmas cards. These are only some of the old stuff you simply can’t part with.

But someday you know you will have to, especially if there is already no room in your house to store them all. And deep down you knew it’s time to make tough choices. Identifying real treasures in your home will help you create more space for more important things, appreciate the beauty in less, and even make smarter choices when buying stuff in the future.

But if you feel you can’t part with your stuff just yet, don’t set it free – store it!

Our gift to you (or your special someone) starts with delivery of one of our empty boxes to your door that’s yours to keep. You fill the box up with keepsakes or other items you don’t need underfoot like seasonal clothes, shoes or decorations. We’ll pick up your full boxes and bulky items like luggage, bikes, or skis and safely store them until you need them back. It only costs $1/box or bulky item for new customers including storage for the first month.

Parting with your old stuff is not easy, we know. Some things we don’t want to leave behind as we move into the new phase of our lives. Perhaps one day they will go where they really belong. But for now store them with Livible. Because entrusting your whole childhood worth of stuff with us means having the peace of mind in knowing that you’ve still got them – only that they’re just stored in another safe and secure location and always available when you needed them.

Customer Story: Meet Joni, a Storrage User Mom Who Loves Yoga

Meet Joni, a Mom who Loves Yoga and a Storrage User

We recently spoke to Joni, a working mom who has a particular interest in meditation, yoga, healthy eating, and hiking on her experience with Storrage Seattle!

In a few sentences, could you describe your experience using the Storrage boxes, the app and the driver?

At first I had a few of issues with the app, but I finally ordered the boxes. They arrived and actually sat unused for at least 4 weeks because we had just moved and it took us forever to unpack. When I finally got around to scheduling a pickup, the driver was really cool, a super nice guy. I sent him to the wrong address and he texted me, found the right address and even worked with our concierge to get the boxes picked up!

What items did you put into Storrage?

We moved into a 2 bed, 2 bath condo downtown. We had no office and no garage, so we put files, back taxes and tools into Storrage.

Would you recommend Storrage to your friends and family?

Yes, I would recommend Storrage for anyone downsizing. It gives you the freedom to live with less stuff in smaller places without having to give up things you need.

Editor’s note: Since the time Joni used our Storrage App we have updated it several times based on her feedback and others. Thanks Joni for your help with making our products just right!

Customer Story: Meet Storrage User Melissa and Learn About Her Life In Seattle

“Things in the house that didn’t have a “home” before, now have a place to live.“ – Melissa, Storrage Customer

We talked to Melissa from Queen Anne about her experience with Storrage. Read on to learn more!

Describe your experience using the Storrage App.

“Getting started couldn’t have been any easier. I simply downloaded the app, entered my info, hit “request”, selected the number of boxes, picked a time and they were delivered a day later.“

What items did you put into Storrage?

“I put some things I use frequently, but am not currently using. Things like, computer equipment, cables, boxes, DVDs, CDs, books, seasonal items, hats, off-season clothes and crafts. Storing these things helped me to free up almost all of my drawer space, which helps me feel a lot less cluttered. Things in the house that didn’t have a “home” before, now have a place to live. I’m more relaxed because there’s less clutter and my small, one-bedroom apartment doesn’t feel as cramped.“

What are you favourite Seattle activities in the summer and how has Storrage helped you to enjoy them?

“I love outdoor festivals, shopping, dinner and drinks on patios and being out on the water. In the city, i spend Sunday mornings at Pike Place Market soaking in the lovely smells and buying groceries, and then over to Fremont Market to shop for antiques! One of the things I’ve noticed, is that coming home from a trip is easier. I have a place for my suitcase, and more room in my closet for any new clothes or shoes I’ve bought. At the end of the day, I just feel more relaxed knowing things are in order.”

Would you recommend Storrage to your friends and family?

“I would definitely recommend Storrage to my friends and family – and i already have! It really makes sense for people who live in the city, have a small car or no car, and want the convenience of not having to lug everything into a storage unit. It’s cheaper and easier. I’m definitely more of a minimalist and any type of clutter annoys me in my day-to-day living. It’s so great to be able to open a drawer and have things organized, or look under the bed and finally not see those things that shouldn’t be there.

I love that I don’t feel tied to my home. I don’t feel the need to “clean out” things, or de-clutter as much as before – everything has a place.”
