Self storage and moving services are inconvenient and outdated
The traditional self storage model is outdated and incredibly inconvenient for the consumer. Most people need to make multiple trips to purchase supplies, send items to storage, even to pack their goods. The entire system is labor intensive and unnecessarily costly for the person storing. In addition to the expense, break-ins and infestations are becoming the norm in self-storage. Eventually, most people even forget what is in their storage units.
The traditional way to move is an even bigger hassle. Customers have to call multiple movers for quotes, have contents transported long distance with other people's contents, and wait for a delivery window of days instead of a set delivery date and time.
Consumers are looking for an easy, on-demand way to store and move, both locally and cross country. There has been no significant change to the traditional storage and moving model. Storage and moving should be easy and fun for the consumer.
Bringing storage and moving into the 21st century
Doorage is a door-to-door storage provider that brings convenient, affordable, clean, and safe storage direct to consumers. We use a pay by volume model that comes with a full service experience to allow competitively price, high-quality service to our customers. Doorage offers a modern solution to moving. Instant online estimates and bookings make finding movers and booking a three minute process.
We pickup. We store.
Doorage is a web and app platform that brings valet storage, tech enabled moving, and rentable moving crates direct to our consumers. We replace cardboard boxes with modern reusable bins, and our platform uses integrated technology to quote, manage ordering, and track customer accounts. Our platform puts their storage inventory at their fingertips. Every customer has a full photo inventory of all their items in storage and with the click of a mouse, can request any single or multiple items delivered right back to their home or business.
More than just storage
Doorage has also changed the way people move. We streamlined the entire moving process and created a system that makes the entire move stress free and fun. We developed an online system that allows consumers to build their own local or cross country estimate in minutes and see instant pricing. From there, they can book with the click of a button. After booking, the entire Doorage team is dedicated to making the move a seamless and smooth process. From virtual move inventory, to truck in transit tracking, Doorage is the modern alternative to moving.
Doorage handles all storage and move orders with our own, highly trained and dedicated teams. We never broker trucks and share loads. Moving with Doorge is a dedicated service catered to each clients needs and timing.
What's more, we stay true to our mission by donating one percent of revenue towards helping advance breast cancer research and one percent of revenue to strengthening after school programs for America’s youth.

More from our customers:
Storage & moving with recurring revenue subscription
At Doorage, we only charge customers for the exact volume of space their storage takes, saving them both money and time. Our standard pricing offers a variety of prices/storage size and specialty packing options. For pickup and delivery, we charge simple fees with no surprises for our customers. With this approach, we project 100% growth year over year in established markets.
In addition to our subscription based storage model, our long distance delivery and moving model brings in large ticket orders with 51% gross margin.
Self storage is a quickly growing industry
The self storage market revenue was $32B+ when we launched in 2018 and is steadily growing at 7%+ annually. Our go-to-market strategy is to capture strategic markets with a network of warehouses to facilitate storage and delivery nationwide. We have three strong leads into the industry, using trucks, digital platforms and university partnerships to solidify our market holding.
In addition to the storage industry, we have emerged as a consumer go to while disrupting the $86B+ moving industry by creating user friendly instant quoting, instant online bookings, and load capture/tracking for clients while in transit. The addition of new markets will continue to increase long haul margins.
Giving customers more with no long-term plans or hidden fees
Unlike our competitors, who force consumers to select long-term storage plans involving pre-designated size units and moving costs, we charge only for the exact volume of storage used. We also provide specialty packing on unique items that otherwise do not fit into our standard containers. This approach is helping us disrupt nationwide storage with smart, clean & safe, affordable storage with delivery on demand.
Our nationwide delivery area makes Doorage a premier valet storage provider that can pickup in local markets, and then coordinate for delivery anywhere in the USA. This marks a significant advantage over all other self storage and valet storage providers.
Moving used to be a tiring and stressful life event. Just the quote process alone is enough to make most consumers run and hide form all of the sales calls. Our proprietary instant quote system allows consumers to have peace when pricing their upcoming move. They see instant pricing online and can book instantly while knowing our support team is just a click or call away. Electronic inventories for moves and in transit tracking are just a few of the advantages of the modern alternative to moving with Doorage.
A new space, a national leader
At Doorage, we're more than just storage and moving. From our current offerings for on demand storage, DIY moving bin rentals, and cross country relocation; to future options like the ability to sell or dispose of items in storage and on demand delivery, we are creating a new space in Consumer Logistics. We are leading the charge to change how clients store and move. We help clients make time in their busy lives for the things that matter most by taking the work and stress out of storage and moving. Future innovations and offerings currently in development move Doorage to the forefront of the Consumer Logistics space as we grow to become the national leader for easy and affordable storage solutions, moving, and delivery.
As part of this goal we intend to launch in 20+ new markets by 2023. In addition, as we grow we will continue to donate 1% of all gross sales to breast cancer research and 1% to after school programs.
