Frequently Asked Questions

Does it require a lot of storage space?
This doesn't require lot of space. Even holding a few items brings a good additional revenue. For example if you hold 4 backpacks for 4 hours every day, which doesn't take more space than that (show with your hands) you make $1250 a month. And you barely spend time for it. You don't have to have storage, any private space works. You'll also put a maximum capacity so we make sure not to overbook you.

Is there a maximum or minimum capacity to drop luggage?
No, whatever you can hold.

Is this safe?
Yes. Guests sign up with their personal information. For the items, we provide you with heat stamped numbered zipties (show them a sample). When a guest comes, you or you tell them to place a zip tie around the zippers of the items they drop off. Once the zippers are sealed, you can't access inside the bag unless you cut the zip tiers (and guests will know that you did). This protects you from two things; having claims that you stole something and holding liability from what's inside the bag - since you don't have access. These are meticulously covered in the Terms&Conditions that both guests and hosts agree to upon signing up.

What if the bag is stolen, who's liability is it?
The liability of anything inside the bag is under guests. We provide you with heat stamped numbered zipties (show them a sample). When a guest comes, you or you tell them to place a zip tie around the zippers of the items they drop off. Once the zippers are sealed, you can't access inside the bag unless you cut the zip ties (and guests will know that you did). This protects you from two things; having claims that you stole something and holding liability from what's inside the bag - since you don't have access. These are meticulously covered in the Terms&Conditions that both guests and hosts agree to upon signing up. The bag itself is under you liability when a guest leaves it. We only ask you to not lose the bag. Put it somewhere that only you or your employees have access to. We're getting in contact with insurance companies about that, but it will take a few months to start the process.

How does payment work / Who gets paid / When are we gonna paid?
When guests leave their luggage, we start the timer. When they pickup, the system calculates the total amount and charges their card in file. We collect payments, and pay you every two weeks via Stripe.

How does tax work?
We send you 1099 at the end of tax year.

What if somebody cuts the tag and puts new one?
Each tag has a unique number on it.

Is there a cost for signing up?
No!

Can we change the hours later? / Can we change the capacity later?
Yes! You can always adjust using your host portal.

Can I opt out any time?
Yes.
