hive storage

Hive storage gives you extra space for your wardrobe

It doesn't fit, and you never wear it. Yet you desperately want to keep it, because you're a sentimental fool (or a packrat, or just convinced that all those terrible band T-shirts will be irony gold in a few years). Is that your life, too? Don't despair - a new Toronto-based startup will help you free up some closet space, commitment-free.

Hive Storage works on the same basic principle as those PODS storage contraptions - except instead of a massive container, you get a six-foot-tall standalone closet on wheels, complete with shelving and clothing rods you can configure to your liking.

A few hours (or a few days) after dropoff, the Hive team will collect your closet full of castoff clothing, and whisk it off to a climate-controlled storage facility; if you ever need to access your stuff, call the company and they'll swing by with your Hive.

The $60-a-month service, aimed at GTA condo-dwellers dealing with a dearth of space, could present a timely solution to your out-of-season clothing storage. Remember, we're heading into fall, shorts and sandals weather is over, and soon everything will be cold and dead. You're welcome!
