Founded in March 2016 by Daniel Bailey (CTO) and Michael Hodgson (CEO), Wahi is a safe and convenient peer-to-peer marketplace for people to find and offer storage space. We connect the owners of space to the people who need space.
In starting Wahi, our main objective was to use technology to vastly improve the traditional self-storage industry, mostly due to our own onerous experiences with it – inconvenient, expensive etc. Spare space is something many of us own (without even knowing it) and many others (often our neighbours) also need. With world-class customer service and a growing community of users, Wahi is a great way for hosts to monetise their extra space and renters to save money.
We are proud to have created the most robust, safe and user friendly peer-to-peer marketplace for you to connect. Welcome!
