"Terry Shaylin had only a few days to clear out her mother’s Santa Monica apartment after an unexpected move overseas. Three days after Shaylin stumbled upon a Clutter ad, a moving truck arrives. 'It was simple,' Shaylin says."

"Now the tech sector is turning its sights on the self-storage sector and its estimated $30 billion in annual revenue."

"Mir explains why you do not want diversity of thought, why you have to build a sports team and not a family, and why extreme cultures are easier for people to understand."

"Unlike traditional self-storage units, where you lug your belongs to and from a warehouse, Clutter comes to you. Staff digitally catalogs what you are sending, packs it up and drives it to a Clutter operated facility. When you want your stuff back, you log in, click the items you need and 48-hours later they are at your door. The attitude is: 'Sit back and relax and we are going to do all the work,' says Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer Ari Mir. This approach has attracted more than 10,000 clients across Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Orange County, New York City, New Jersey, Seattle and, starting this week, Chicago."

"Like many startups, the Clutter cofounder went after a big industry with a modern-day technology solution. People store their items, but oftentimes they leave them in a big room with little idea of what's there and why. Clutter added an online inventory component."

"'It’s always been our vision to transform the way you manage your belongings,' said Ari Mir, CEO of the Los Angeles-based company. Investors like this idea, too. Today, Clutter announced that it raised $64 million from venture firms including London-based Atomico and Alphabet Inc.'s in-house venture arm, GV. One of Clutter’s competitors, New York-based MakeSpace, raised $30 million in April."

"On Tuesday, Clutter plans to announce that it raised $70 million from one of Europe's top VC firms, Atomico, alongside GV (Google Ventures) and existing investor Sequoia. The latest funding round raises Clutter's total funding to $100 million."

"Clutter picks up and delivers your items on demand and everything can be arranged online. They aim to make storing your belongings as convenient as possible."

"Today, the fruits of their long hours have resulted in their company, Clutter, announcing a $64 million Series C to help users safely and easily store their belongings. Since raising its seed round back in 2015, the Culver City-based startup has expanded to Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, New Jersey, San Diego and Seattle. And the startup has just revealed that — in addition to the funding announcement — it has launched operations in the Windy City."

"Speaking of real estate, this morning Atomico, Sequoia, GV and Fifth Wall, a venture firm focused specifically on real estate, announced a significant new real-estate focused deal for an L.A.-based storage startup called Clutter (see full details of the deal in our listings below). Fifth Wall Partner Brendan Wallace noted in a blog post that Clutter represents a new category of company called 'real estate as a service.'"

Clutter Picks Up Funding

"Clutter, a Culver City start-up that picks up, stores and returns goods to people, landed a $64-million investment to bring its storage service to more cities and launch new services. The funding — announced Tuesday — comes from an investor group helmed by European venture capital firm Atomico, which was co-founded by one of the creators of Skype. Other new backers include GV, the venture capital arm of Google parent Alphabet, and Fifth Wall, a Los Angeles investment fund focused on real estate technology."

"On-demand storage provided Clutter announced today that it closed on a $64 million Series C round led by Atomico, which was joined by new investors GV (previously Google Ventures) and Fifth Walll. Previous investor Sequioa also contributed to the latest round. That makes Clutter the most well-funded player in the space, with about $100 million raised to date."

"Clutter is different from other on-demand storage startups because it hires all its drivers and movers as employees rather than contractors or third-party moving companies, says Mr. Mir, co-founder and chief marketing officer at Clutter. 'We're going into your house and taking items far away where you don’t have access,' Mr. Mir said. 'It's really important to make sure you trust us in every step of the supply chain.'"

"Culver City, California-based Clutter, a provider of on demand self-storage services, announced it has raised $64 million in a Series C round of funding. Atomico led the round, which included participation from existing investor Sequoia Capital and new investors GV (formerly Google Ventures) and Fifth Wall. The company previously raised about $32 million in funding."

"Clutter, a Culver City, Calif.-based on-demand physical storage startup, has raised $64 million in Series C funding. Atomico led the round, and was joined by Sequoia Capital, GV and Fifth Wall."

"Clutter, a Culver City, California-based on demand self-storage service provider, raised $64m in a Series C funding. The round was led by Atomico with participation from existing investor Sequoia Capital and new investors GV (formerly Google Ventures) and Fifth Wall. The company, which had previously raised about $32m, intends to use the funds to continue to expand across the United States."

"Founded in 2015, Clutter has raised $100 million to date and plans on using the fresh capital to further develop its product, hire more people, and expand to 50 markets over the next five to six years. International expansion is also in the cards. 'We recently joined the Seattle market, which is home to two of the world’s largest ports,' wrote Clutter cofounder and CMO Ari Mir, in an email to VentureBeat. 'When we are ready for international expansion, this positions us positively for work in Canada and east Asia.'"

"A business that stashes clothes, bikes and furniture for people tight on space doesn't sound like much of a tech company. But that hasn't stopped one of Silicon Valley's top venture capital firms from investing in a Los Angeles storage start-up. Clutter Inc. has movers pack people's belongings and then haul them to a storage facility until they're needed. It doesn't bring in a huge number of customers, but the ones who do sign up pay a couple of hundred dollars a month and remain customers for a long time, said Omar Hamoui, a partner at Sequoia Capital. That helps explain why Hamoui's firm recently invested $20 million in Clutter, just six months after leading a $9-million infusion for the company."

"In the midst of exponential growth and expansion, Clutter has raised another $20 million from Sequoia Capital. The Series B round comes just six months after its Sequoia-led $9 million Series A in October 2015. The Culver City, Calif., startup has now raised more than $32 million. Dubbed the 'Uber for storage', Clutter deploys professional movers to pick up , photograph and pack users’ items and deliver them to a secure facility. When users want their stuff back, they select the desired items from their online visual inventory, and Clutter returns them their doorstep within 48 hours."

"Amidst a funding slow down, a company that takes care of storing your stuff has raised money for the second time in five months. And the entire deal only took nine days to close, says its cofounder and CMO Ari Mir. Los Angeles-based on-demand storage startup Clutter is announcing a $20 million Series B round led by Sequoia. The venture capital firm had led its $9 million Series A in October, just five months before."

"Renting storage units from businesses like Public Storage and Extra Space Storage is routine for people who have too much stuff. To lug the heaviest items inside, they must often hire movers. Silicon Valley investment firm Sequoia Capital is betting big that Clutter will change this reality, which has largely remained unchanged for decades. The firm is putting $20 million in Series B funding into Clutter, only six months after it led that company’s $9 million Series A funding."

"Clutter, the on-demand storage space looking to take on the likes of MakeSpace, has today announced the close of a $20 million Series B round led by Sequoia Capital. Sequoia also led a $9 million Series A for Clutter back in October."

"While many startups have tried to pack life up into boxes, Clutter quickly realized that storing objects didn't mean finding the right box. Instead, Clutter's approach is to use trained movers to move objects from your house and into storage — and to accept objects of all sizes. The items are photographed and put in an online catalog as they're whisked away to a storage facility. When a customer needs their winter clothes back, it's as easy as a few taps in an app to select them to be returned to you."

The Real Life Storage Wars

"When we started looking at this industry, we understood the need for storage; we just didn’t understand why the experience was so poor," says Clutter co-founder Ari Mir. So the California company hired movers to help customers pack, photograph, and transport their belongings. Sixty percent of storage customers live in 25 U.S. metropolitan areas, says Mir, and his company is focusing on those markets."

"Are you one of the unfortunate folks who have had to clear out of Porter Ranch due to the giant natural gas leak? Los Angeles-based on-demand, self storage service Clutter said Thursday that it will offer up three months of storage to residents have have been asked to evacuate during the methane leak disaster."

"Just a few days into 2016, we suggest you start Clutter-ing. The on-demand, self-storage biz, available in SF and the Bay Area entire, leaves you nary an excuse to continue living in hoarder-like environs. (We know, we know, you live in a small apartment.) Here's the deal: No car? No problem. Don't feel like packing? Don't have to. Want access to your things without spending hours rifling through boxes? Piece of cake. See, the LA-based company has this convenient, self-storage thing down pat."

"Clutter, the storage service that uses professional movers to load and unload your stuff, has today announced the close of a $9 million in Series A funding, led by Sequoia. As a part of the deal, Sequoia partner Omar Hamoui, who led the round, is joining the Clutter board."

"Clutter’s mobile-optimized website allows users to have items picked up, packed if need be, and delivered to and from self-storage on-demand, or within 48 hours. The company employs movers, packers and drivers on staff, instead of relying on freelance laborers. [. . .] This approach allows the startup to avoid the high overhead expenditures of traditional self-storage businesses, such as Public Storage Inc. or Extra Space Storage Inc."

"Your life doesn't fit in a box. The hard thing to do is to move an eight-piece sectional couch or a marble table,' Mir said. 'We pride ourselves on not necessarily doing what's easiest for us, but with the goal of what's the most convenient service for the customer."

"Clutter, the on-demand storage service based out of Los Angeles, has today announced that it has expanded its offering to cover all of the San Francisco Bay Area. The company also announced that it has raised an additional $1.3 million in funding, bringing total funding to $3.3 million."

"A new wave of start-ups is trying to bring the convenient user experience popularized by companies such as Uber and Airbnb to the unglamorous world of moving and storage."

"'Over time you don’t even realize how much stuff you accumulate,' she explained. 'That’s the situation for me. I heard about this new company by the name of Clutter that was in the Los Angeles area that was moving down to the Orange County area. It is something that no other storage unit offers.'"
