About SpareFoot

SpareFoot is the world’s largest, simplest and best marketplace for self-storage. We also provide leading web marketing solutions for storage operators. Our company is a fun and cool start-up headquartered in Austin, TX.


Founded in 2008 by then-UCLA students Chuck Gordon and Mario Feghali (aka Chario), SpareFoot originated as a person-to-person storage website that helped people rent extra space for storage in private residences. Then we realized there was a larger opportunity for this platform in the traditional self-storage industry.


Shopping for storage the old-fashioned way is a headache— you can easily waste hours calling facilities through the Yellow Pages, getting spammed by “free quote” services or clicking through clunky, outdated websites. SpareFoot solves the problem by organizing every facility in one simple marketplace online. In just a few minutes, you can find and compare storage facilities in your neighborhood, check out photos and read customer reviews. Once you find the perfect storage unit, reserve it online for free. It’s that easy!


We have come pretty far in the last three years— SpareFoot boasts the largest selection of storage units with real-time pricing and availability on the web. Our network is now larger than all other online storage directories combined. We also offer a suite of industry-leading web marketing tools for storage operators, and have been chosen as a preferred partner by more major online brands than any other storage company.


Every day, SpareFoot evolves and tightens the ship. We’re establishing ourselves as the technology and thought leaders of self-storage. How do we do it? Our tight-knit team of employees is super smart and motivated to make it happen. The team works long hours and manages to have a ton of fun, too. SpareFoot is backed by awesome start-up investors.
