The Spring semester is coming to a close at the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga, and students are choosing to forgo packing their dorm and apartment belongings in the car for Summer break just to have to bring them back in August.
Instead, UTC students, 67% of which live outside Hamilton County, are electing to store their items with Infinite Closet over the summer. Infinite Closet is a micro-storage on-demand company, which delivers storage boxes to your door, picks them up, and stores them until you need them back. For UTC students, the price is $5/box/month to save space in the car or plane when they go home over the summer.
The Times Free Press picked up on the story, and ran an article on April 25th about the concept and our founder:
As classes wrap up and students pack their bags for the summer, the lingering question is where they will put all the things they’ve accumulated during the year until they return in the fall. Kevin Cherrick has an answer for that with Infinite Closet, the newest micro-storage solution in town, that allows customers to pack away any items that can fit in a plastic bin that is 27 inches long, 17 inches wide and 12 inches tall.
Cherrick, who recently moved to the area with his family from Phoenix, said one of the main perks of Infinite Closet is customers don’t have to drive to and from their unit to retrieve their things. Calling it “micro-storage on demand,” Cherrick’s customers can simply text him whenever they want their box and he will have it to them within 24 hours.
