Closetbox Expands Into Chattanooga Market

Tuesday, January 9, 2018

Innovative self-storage disrupter Closetbox announced Tuesday its expansion into 10 new markets around the country, including Chattanooga, creating a total service area of 88 markets across the United States, with 206 locations. The storage company experienced significant growth throughout 2017, with a 28 percent growth in new cities. 

New Closetbox service areas now include Napa, Ca.; Baton Rouge, La.; Canton, Oh.; Chattanooga; Huntsville, Al.; Jackson, Ms.; Knoxville; Lancaster, Pa.; Tulsa, Ok.; and Durham, N.C. This is Closetbox’s first market in Mississippi. 

Closetbox was founded with the goal of freeing its customers from the hassle of loading, hauling, and moving into storage. For the cost of a traditional self-storage unit, Closetbox provides full-service, concierge storage that includes professional storage movers picking up belongings from clients’ homes and on-demand return delivery. 

Closetbox creates additional convenience for its clients through its web and mobile offerings. Clients have the ability to manage their stored belongings, pickups and deliveries.

Closetbox is the only full-service storage company that uses an asset-light, shared economy model by using excess capacity in the existing logistics network to pick up and deliver storage. Because of this model, Closetbox is the only company to truly disrupt self-storage by profitably offering full-service storage at the cost of self-storage, said officials. 

“We are thrilled about the expansion into these 10 new markets,” said Marcus Mollmann, Closetbox founder and CEO. “With our devotion to exceptional customer service and our unique ability to help customers almost anywhere in the United States, we look forward to exponential growth in 2018.” 

The expansion marks the beginning of expected continued growth, with plans to reach the majority of the United States population in 2018, as well as anticipated international expansion by the end of the year.
