We’re on a mission to make physical space work for people who need it, when and how they need it. Our platform connects those who have extra space with those who need it

Our platform is a responsive web-focused online marketplace. As we get more feedback from our users, we are building more exciting features by the day. We make sure that what we build reflects on the community that we’re building on our platform.
