HaulBox Offers Storage Space By The Box

A new local company in Gainesville, called HaulBox, gives customers the convenience and service of renting storage space by the box without having to leave the comforts of home. This service targets people in need of storage space, but who don't have enough items to fill an entire storage unit.

Customers may request boxes through the HaulBox.com website, and the company sends out plastic 18.7-gallon boxes for free. The client then fills the boxes, requests a pickup on the website and pays $8 per month per box for storage in a climate-controlled warehouse. When the customer wants a box back, they can make a request online and it's delivered back to them for $10 for the first box and $2 for each additional box.

Derar Ayoush, HaulBox co-founder, is a recent UF grad. He studied finance and entrepreneurship. Gilbert Mudenda, the other co-founder, is a junior at UF studying economics and political science. “Ayoush got the idea for the business when he was storing items in his apartment for several friends, all international students who would take trips back to their home country in the summer.”

The company has plans to expand to Tallahassee and to also offer services to businesses as well.
