More Than Self Storage

Bolt Storage is a leading provider of self-storage solutions. Our mission is to offer convenient, secure, and affordable storage options for individuals and businesses.

Bolt Storage by the numbers

Bolt Storage (previously Storage Squad) was founded by Nicholas Huber and Daniel Hagberg in 2011. The business began at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY as a pickup and delivery service catered toward storing college students’ belongings over the summer recess.

By 2014 the company had grown and was operating at 30 major universities in 12 states and had a team of 7 full time employees and 150+ part time employees.

In 2016 the company expanded into traditional self storage and built a 51,000 square foot storage facility in Ithaca, NY.

These are Bolt Storage's numbers today as it looks to continue to grow.
