We were co-founded in 2012 by Brett Akker (co-founder of Streetcar), Carl August Ameln (founder of multiple storage business across Europe) and Steve Folwell (former Strategy Director at Guardian Media Group). We’ve won multiple awards, including having been named High Growth Team of the Year, The UK’s Most Innovative Business, and Crowdfunded Business of the Year.
We have a strong company culture and a diverse team that makes LOVESPACE an inspiring place to work. We’re currently a team of over 40 people, based between Shoreditch and Luton.
The founders of LOVESPACE saw a real opportunity to make storage more convenient and offer a hassle-free alternative to self storage.
The problem with traditional self storage for many customers is that they end up paying for space they aren't using, and they have to transport their items there and collect them themselves which takes time and often incurs additional costs of hiring a vehicle.
Core Team Values
We were brought to life by our supporters after being overfunded on Crowdcube
We knew our business was really going somewhere when we hit £1 million in sales!
We decided to raise another round of crowdfunding and surpassed our £500k goal in the final week of our campaign
Now, we're working hard to improve our service and reaching as many new customers as possible
LOVESPACE offer by-the-box storage so customers only pay for the exact amount they need to store and therefore not wasting money renting space they aren't using. We offer collection and delivery, anywhere in the UK as soon as the next day.
LOVESPACE customers can manage all aspects of their order online and on our mobile app, including scheduling collections, tracking orders and creating photo inventories to keep track of what is in each box.
Meet Our Team
We hire young people who are as driven and excited as we are to create a new storage solution that makes people happy
"I love what I do because I get to work with some of the best and brightest people around. You learn so much working in a startup because there are very few people to do all that needs to be done"
