Find extra cash or extra space with ShedSpace

How many of us wish we had a little extra cash, or a little extra space? I know as a family of 6 we could certainly do with a little more of both! Thanks to ShedSpace you can now rent out storage space to make some extra income, or hire storage space to make some extra room in your own home, both of which couldn’t be more simple to do!

ShedSpace is a little like Airbnb but for space. So if you have a spare room in your home you could rent it out for storage space, a shed could be used to store someone else bikes or tools, a driveway could accommodate someone’s car, or even large cupboards rented out to store items that others don’t have space for but can’t bear to part with.

ShedSpace acknowledges that with Brits contributing to some 27 million tonnes of household waste to landfill each year, aside from the environmental impact of that number, it would be far better for us to put our household items on pause, and not in the ground. So maybe you don’t have space to store that grand piano right now, or to house much loved furniture between homes, but somebody else might, and that’s where ShedSpace is there to help pair you with the right host for your items!

If you’re looking to borrow space it’s free to join, and the cost of that space is agreed between you and the renter. All agreements made through ShedSpace are also covered by their own insurance policy up to £2000 which is always reassuring. Signing up couldn’t be easier, you simply enter your details, key in your postcode, and off you go!

Once you’ve registered with ShedSpace you can follow their 5 easy steps to secure your storage space.

1. Search for space in your local area. There’s a wide variety of filters and specifications to make your search process as quick and easy as possible.

2. Once you’ve found a space that suits you, get in touch to arrange a viewing or request more info from the host.

3. Once you’re happy with your agreement, set a date and time with the host and get ready to move in.

4. What are you storing your stuff in? How’s it getting there? Has your host got insurance? If not, who’ll be insuring it for you? All these things can be sorted in just a couple of clicks with our partners.

5. Make the most of your new space, get to know your host and revel in the fact that you’ve saved yourself time and effort whilst helping out others in your community make the most of their space.

It’s the same for those looking to rent out their own storage space, something which I think is an amazing idea especially with so many people having empty rooms in their house, space in their garages, and indeed in their sheds.

1. List your space in less than ten minutes with our quick and easy setup guide.

2. Once you’ve submitted your space, take some time to make sure your space is clean, tidy and accessible. Then it’s a case of sitting back and waiting for guests to discover your space.

3. Once you’ve found a guest you like, come to an agreement on access, price and the duration of the rental.

4. Help your guest get started by showing them around, and helping them to settle in. You won’t have to physically move their stuff though. (Not unless you want to!)

5. You’re all set! Enjoy the freedom of easy, hassle-free passive income.

Although we certainly don’t have any space to rent out, we do have plenty of things we need to store and I will definitely consider using ShedSpace in the future. After all, once you have thrown out much loved items you can never get them back.

    What a great way to earn some passive cash! I think I will be doing this with the extra space I have!

    This is such a neat idea! We are in a small place right now and have things we don’t want to throw away for when we move into a larger place. This is perfect!

    I think both are great ideas. I would lean more to freeing up storage space, as it seems our house doesn’t have enough room!

    I know once the kids are grown I will have a lot of space but i never thought of doing this at our house. It seems like a great way to make money without invading your house.

    This is an interesting idea. I love the idea of decluttering and creating more open space. They make it pretty easy.

    This is a really good idea. Especially if you just need a little space for a short time. I wonder will something like this come to the United States.

    What a brilliant idea! I live in NYC so I cant really see this being a viable option because its one way plenty of people who need extra space but I cant imagine people having space to rent!

    This is great. I would love to do something like this actually. I am constantly trying to make space in our house when people come to stay and this makes that so easy.

    We have an extra bedroom and also a Storage Shed I could clean up and rent out and the money we make from it we would be able to take a much-needed Vacation. So I plan on talking to my husband this evening and see if we can do this.

    This is such a brilliant concept! I have so much stuff that I would love to store somewhere. I need to look into this and see if it is in my area.

    People are so ingenious! Of course, I need a place to put my stuff, of course, I will give you money. The imagination of people in inexhaustible!

    Great idea, will definitely be looking into this

    This is such a great idea! It’s a great way to help someone out while making a little extra cash. I’m going to look into this

    This is an amazing idea! I’m surprised it’s the first time I’ve heard anything like it! We could easily clear out our little garage for this! It’s too small to put our vehicles in, and the previous owners made it like a mini office and there’s a divider for 2 separate rooms with 2 separate padlocks!

    This is the first time I’ve heard about Shedspace and I think it would help a lot people with extra rooms in their house to earn some extra cash.
