After my studies in social and economic sciences, I, Lennert De bruyn, did research in 2019 into the challenging real estate market to see if there is a product that could be of great added value for every Belgian.
After a few months of research, I ended up in the still relatively unknown market of self-storage.
What immediately struck me is that the sector has a rather outdated character and that there were some innovation opportunities. For example, you still had to go on site at every self-storage provider to sign your contract and receive your key.
Ik thought "That should also be possible in an innovative way!"
We buy so many things online, don't you also need to be able to book storage space online? Our way of life, purchases, communication ... is changing at a rapid pace. We are going to live smaller, there are more self-employed people, ecommerce finds its place in the heart of the Belgian.
Self-storage is also useful for hundreds of other applications. Relocations, a death, divorces, archives, your collection, promotional material, intermediate storage ... and so on. This ensures that the self-storage sector in Europe has grown enormously in recent years.
There is a growing demand for smaller, affordable, flexible & always-accessible storage spaces " At the beginning of 2020, Storo was the first in Belgium to come up with a system that could meet the convenience of a good webshop.
Als klant boek je online je ruimte, en je krijgt meteen toegang door middel van een webapplicatie. Er is ook een toegangscode voorzien, waarmee je als klant ook het gebouw en je box kan openen. Wij zullen onze diensten blijven verbeteren!
My name is Lennert :) Within Storo I take care of the day-to-day management of the company.
I founded the company Storo in 2019 with my father Johan, after a market research which showed that self-storage is an interesting sector that is growing very fast in Belgium.
I myself have been passionate about everything to do with real estate and retail for years, so this suited me immediately.
Because we have fully automated everything, such as a webshop, I have now become half an IT professional. An undiscovered passion it seems.
I love the contact with you, our customers, so you will often see me yourself or get me on the line.
As for my private life:
In my spare time I like to go out for dinner and drink with friends, or you can find me on the tennis court.
My name is Johan.
I have been active in project development for 25 years and, together with my son Lennert, saw an opportunity in a self-storage sector still unknown in Belgium.
After an investigation in 2019, we saw our opportunity to take the plunge, which resulted in the opening of 2 branches at the beginning of this year in Mechelen and Brecht.
My role within Storo is mainly to act as a sounding board for Lennert and the rest of the team.
I am also looking for new locations where Storo could establish itself based on my experience in the real estate market.
In my spare time you will mainly find me on the racing bike.
My name is Marine.
I joined Storo at the end of 2019, just before the opening of the two branches.
Before the opening, I learned everything about the company, the way of working, the storage areas ...
In the meantime, I have completely found a passion for our storage spaces and I am mainly responsible for the daily administration and the appointments with customers for a tour.
I am in contact with customers every day, and I ensure that every customer can optimally enjoy their storage space.
If you have any questions, you can always call me on 03 / 376.07.63 or email me at email@example.com
In my spare time I am a nailstylist and I enjoy going for walks with my dogs Mac and Matisse.
For the rest, Storo is assisted where necessary by the standby team.
These are Lien Jef and Tom.
Lien is still responsible for the management of the buildings.
Tom analyzes and co-creates Excel sheets and process structures in order to work optimally.
Jef is responsible for the daily maintenance and technical support where necessary.
He can get anything made.
Together, all Storo team members complement each other well, which ensures an optimally arranged service.
