Clutter on-demand storage services packs up $20 million from Sequoia

Clutter, the on-demand storage space looking to get on the likes of MakeSpace, has today announced the near of a $20 million Series B circular led by Sequoia Capital.

Sequoia also led a $9 million Series A for Clutter back in October.

The premise behind Clutter is simple.

Nearly everyone that lives in a metropolitan area, whether its a shoebox apt in NY or a house in Orange County, needs some form of storage. But shopping for the right storage space for your things, and then lugging it to and from the storage unit, is a pain in the ass.

Clutter aims to fix this by encompassing the whole storage/emotional process. Things love Christmas decorations and off-season attire can be keep in bins that MakeSpace provides. All the user has to do is click pictures of their items through the app so they know which bin contains what items.

But Clutter goes beyond bins, employing W2 professionals to get care of larger items love wall-mounted TVs and furniture.

Clutter also deals with pricing in a way that makes more sense to the consumer. Usually, storage spaces price out their packages by square foot, but most people don’t know precisely how many square feet they need. For example, the company offers the Item Map at $7/mo (which covers a few boxes), the Closet Map for $75/month, the Garage Map (which fits everything that can go in a one-car garage) for $175/month, all the way to the Studio Map and Apartment Plan.

But what really sets Clutter apart is the way it handles the back-end of its business. Instead of spending most of its capital on leasing all warehouses, Clutter signs deal with pre-existing warehouses for just a portion of the space within the building.

As the company grows in various geographic markets, it starts leasing a greater and greater chunk of that building until it’s time to obtain a committed Clutter space.

Users can have stuff picked up or dropped off within a 24-hour window.

Clutter currently operates in most of California, covering Santa Barbara all the way down to San Diego, as well as the entirety of the Bay Area. The company is also available in NY and New Jersey.
