Everyone needs a place to store and if you -- in a city like New York -- you know the small apartment can barely handle all the junk so maybe you glad you rent a storage locker. May he live among it and go crazy well Sam Rosen is the founder and CEO makes face -- he's come up with a way to disrupt the 24 billion dollar storage business. It involves the cloud and if you're not exactly sure how you can store your winter clothing golf clubs in the cloud he's here to explain -- Thank you for having me this morning -- for being here so this is this is this is how you get yourself into the cloud which makes me think I mean -- this isn't the patent. -- this is not -- cut some makes peace is cloud storage for physical things think bed sheets and Crocs not spreadsheets and -- And just as easy it is as it is to order groceries from for extract. -- -- makes it dead simple -- -- quarters storage at your door. So you show up at -- or. Yes and you take it letter -- exactly so to put your stuff into the crowd it's just three easy steps the first is scheduled reservation online -- mix -- dot com. Or give us a call. The second is we actually show your house with -- plastic bins. You fill them up with yourself and -- -- wait twenty minutes -- you pack them up. Or come back -- you think you gonna take me twenty minutes to pack my man or for free will come back in two weeks that he needs some time and lots of customers like this may be over weekend while they're planning. Spring -- something that. -- -- the bins with their items like this with shirts and sweaters and jackets put away those winner stuff to make room for Summers. And then we come back to them pick up those items plus an oversized items like -- kaczynski's. Things that don't -- organs and we take away to our facility. We actually created digital catalog on the third step is we take those pictures and the descriptions that you can actually right on the top of the game.

I have your very busy mother you're an elderly person or college student or even yourself busy day or ended you could just do -- and we take care of that inventory process.
