AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Entrepreneur Kevin Knebel today announced the launch of Crampt, an innovative on-demand storage company that eliminates the hassles of self-storage units, and makes it easier to organize, declutter and retrieve stored possessions.
The self-storage industry is growing exponentially. There are more than 54,000 self-storage facilities nationwide. In 2016, storage revenue generated more than $32 billion—nearly three times more than Hollywood’s annual box office earnings.
Despite their popularity, Crampt says storage facilities are often a hassle, expensive, inconveniently located, and lack security. Moving items can be difficult without an SUV or truck. People use old cardboard boxes or buy flimsy, expensive plastic bins.
“People mean well when downsizing, but then store stuff for an average of five years and never touch it. Temporary storage units become long-term hoarding spaces. Crampt makes storage more useful and accessible,” said Knebel, CEO of Crampt.
Instead, Crampt provides free, sanitized and industrial-strength crates with barcodes for secure storage. Everything is digitally photographed and registered in an online account, which customers can use to request items be returned to them in 24-48 hours.
Crampt can help pack items before transporting them to their climate-controlled and secure storage facility in North Austin. The initial pickup is free.
Crampt also stores large items that won’t fit into their customized crates, like bikes, furniture, kayaks, canoes, skis, luggage, seasonal items, golf clubs, and more.
Crampt storage is priced on a monthly basis:
- Small is $73 per month for 200 cubic feet, which holds a hall closet or half-bathroom.
- Medium is $122 per month, for 400 cubic feet, or about the contents of a small room.
- Large is $185 per month, or 800 cubic feet, which can contain contents of a one-bedroom apartment.
- Extra Large is $284 per month for 1200 cubic feet, which can store contents of a two-bedroom apartment.
