Hi everyone, I’ve been a host in the past, as have family and friends. A lot of the good things that can come out of this have been talked about in this forum, but a lot of the difficulties / hassles of being a host have been too.
I’ve been looking at ways to help people monetize their space in a way which doesn’t require other people to stay in their home… Granted, for some this misses the whole point of AirBnb (making new connections, etc), but for some who depend on the income from AirBnB this would be a welcome relief from time to time…
The idea is simple - the same concept, but applied to self-storage. Fill your spare bedroom with boxes, with the logistics managed by the intermediary company, and make money for just having things in your spare space. No bed sheet changes. No clean up. No worrying about whether the next guest will be a total bore. Yes, there are some challenges involved, and we’re working on those.
I’d like a debate with those in this forum about this idea (which we’re actively building now in London, UK). What do you think?
