MakeSpace, a NYC-based full-service storage provider that picks up, stores and brings back belongings, raised $30m in Series C funding.
The round was led by 8VC with participation from existing investors Upfront Ventures, Harmony Partners, and Summit Action.
The company intends to use the funds to scale the business and further develop its logistics technology platform and operational infrastructure. In conjunction with the funding, 8VC partner Kimmy Scotti joined MakeSpace’s board of directors.
Founded by Sam Rosen and Rahul Gandhi, MakeSpace operates a platform and professional movers that provide pick-up, packing and delivery services to customers. MakeSpace stores customers’ belongings in massive warehouses outside city centers and passes along the real estate savings to its customers. Customers can manage their storage remotely by viewing their digital catalog to review items and schedule deliveries.
Following its launch in 2013, MakeSpace operates in New York City, New Jersey, Chicago, Washington, D.C., and most recently added Los Angeles.
