Meet Wouter, the first tenant via Book Your Box!


Meanwhile, the first users have rented their self-storage unit through our marketplace. But the very first reservation, that was a milestone. We thought that we should give this tenant a small gift. No sooner said than done! We met up with Wouter at Skwer's in Houthalen-Helchteren, the self-storage where he reserved his unit via Book Your Box.

Hi Wouter! Congratulations, you're the first one to rent through Book Your Box!

Really? I didn’t expected that. Thanks for the attention. Very nice!

You're welcome. What was your reason for renting a self-storage box?

As a self-employed interior builder, I was looking for extra storage space for my building materials, including plasterboard. I can store some things at home in the garden shed, but over time I had materials for three different projects in the house. As you can guess, my wife wasn't too happy about that (laughs).

Now that I have my unit, I can pick up the things I need in the morning and drop them off in the evening. Moreover, everything is stored safely here. The flexibility to cancel the rental contract every month is a great added value.

How was your experience at Book Your Box?

Very good! The website is very user-friendly. I entered my location and found a provider near me with available units. After choosing my unit, I filled in my details and easily paid the first month's rent. A few moments later I received the confirmation of my reservation by e-mail.

Nadine, as a self-storage operator, do you share this positive experience?

Absolutely. The reservation was made in the evening via e-mail so the next day I contacted Wouter by phone to arrange a moment to sign the lease and hand over the key. In this way, we acquired a tenant outside office hours.

Good to hear, both of you. Thanks for the trust in Book Your Box and good luck!
