How many listings may I advertise on iStoreit?

What kind of spaces can I rent out as storage?
As a host, you can choose to rent any space you want. It can be a large or small space, indoors or outdoors, or climate controlled and airtight. Make sure to specify these details on your listing!
Can I decide what items are stored in my rental space?
Absolutely! As the host, you can discuss what items are permitted in your space with potential renters before making a deal.
Can I choose how long the listing is available?
Yes, you can specify how long the listing is available.
Do I get reimbursed if I cancel my hosting membership?
Per the terms and conditions, if a host cancels their membership, whatever has already been drawn from their account will not be reimbursed.
What if I don’t want to list my exact location?
You can list your local library, the closest McDonald’s, Wal-Mart…etc. Just make sure you include this information in your listing description and let potential renters know your pick-up plan. Word of caution: because you’re storing other people’s valuable belongings, if you don’t tell them your exact location they may feel skeptical about dropping their stuff off with you. You may need to provide extra security assurances to help alleviate any concerns.

No, using iStoreit to search for the perfect storage space is completely free! You’ll only need to pay the host the agreed-upon rent once you’ve found a storage rental space.
Am I responsible for transporting my items to the rental location?
You can bring your stuff to the rental location, but some hosts may choose to provide a pickup option. Completely up to you and what you arrange with the rental space host!
What kind of items can I rent space for?
This depends on the agreement between you and the host you wish to rent from. Each listing should provide details about the potential space, so you will be able to find the best home for your belongings.
How do I know a host is trustworthy?
Each host should provide specific information about the potential storage space. They can also post videos/photos of the space to provide further confirmation the listing is adequate for your needs.
Can I leave a review on a host’s page?
Yes! However, only users who have rented the space are able to leave a review.
