Tampa, FL (June 16, 2020) – Red Rover, launched by the founder of PODS, has created a new category in the marketplace known as Fetchable Storage™ with the goal of providing customers with a more affordable moving and storage option. Red Rover’s Fetchable Storage™ offers customers a portable storage unit, on a truck, that the customer picks up and drives for free. Then the storage unit is stored in one of Red Rover’s state-of-the-art, climate-controlled storage facilities.
The company was designed so that the customer has minimal, if any, contact with people, aligning with consumer trends. All information is gathered online and/or over the phone, there is no “counter” when a customer goes to collect their truck and the trucks and containers are brand new and sanitized between every use.
“After three years of planning and development, we formed a management team with over 140 years of moving and storage experience and officially launched in our local Tampa Bay community in early 2020,” said Peter Warhurst, CEO and founder of Red Rover. “This is an underserved consumer; they want the convenience of portable storage and the price of rental truck. Our Red Rover solution makes moving and storage easy for consumers – and they can save a few bucks.”
When a customer is ready to pick up their truck, they will receive a text with a code to access a private Red Rover location. The customer then has from 8am – midnight to load their storage container and return the truck. The storage unit is then stored in one of the secure climate controlled facilities until the customer needs their belongings back. No loading a truck, unloading a truck and reloading belongings into a storage unit.
The trucks also include innovative features such as back up cameras, lane departure warnings and a patent pending mechanical ramp so customers don’t have to struggle with lifting and setting up a heavy ramp – it’s literally a push of a button. The ramp provides the ability for back or side loading and unloading capabilities for rural or urban lifestyles where space is tight.
Red Rover currently has three locations in the Tampa Bay area and they plan to develop a national footprint over the next three years.
