Back in August 2008 two college seniors, Chuck and Mario, started SpareFoot.com in their UCLA dorm room.
The website helps users find and reserve the best self-storage facility to fit their needs—and after nine years in business SpareFoot has generated more than a billion dollars in revenue for the storage industry.
Put another way, SpareFoot customers have moved their stuff into more than 95,000,000 square feet of storage area since the company started. Considering the average storage unit is eight feet tall, that equates to 765,000,000 cubic feet of storage space.
“To put it in perspective, our customers have rented enough space to fill the equivalent of more than 20 Empire State Buildings,” said SpareFoot CEO Chuck Gordon. “As the largest marketplace to find and rent storage, we’ve learned a lot about the needs of storage customers in the past nine years.”
To celebrate this momentous occasion, we assembled the infographic below to convey just how much storage space SpareFoot has helped customers find:
