Geymslur, the self storage facility in Iceland
Geymslur, the self storage facility in Iceland

We believe storage owners deserve to live life with freedom and worry less about storage operations. Technological solutions and simplicity is the key. We have removed the barriers that demand your constant attention.

Hallgrimur started his self-storage business (Geymslur, 400+ units) in Iceland in 2005. The available facility management solutions were expensive and didn’t meet his business needs. That’s when 6Storage evolved in the year 2007 to facilitate the storage management of 2400+ units in 6 locations across Iceland.

Being a storage owner, Hallgrimur understood the challenges of self storage operators; hence we released 6Storage to the global storage industry with the best affordable price. During the initial years, we took insights from our best US customer and customized the software with more features and enhancements. This gave us an edge among other US self storage software companies. 6Storage had a 158% growth in business within the first year and became popular in the US market

In 2018, Ronald partnered with Hallgrimur and built a chain of self storage facilities (1Spazio) in Italy. Ronald being a storage consultant suggested us inputs which we implemented on 6Storage application to aid the European market. Few European customers requested features like XML invoicing, fiscal year reset etc. and now we’ve tailored our application for the European market as well. In time,
1) we integrated with some major global payment gateways so global users can make online payments with nominal transactional fees, and
2) sms/email integrations for auto reminders.

The 6Storage dev and support teams are based in India. Mastan, the product head manages the small team of experts. With his management and the team’s capacity, 6Storage has gained the name “friendly customer support 24/7”. Mastan is a strong believer of “Lean Product Development”.

We now have storage facilities of 30+ countries using our application. Apart from delivering software solutions, we’re transparent in pricing and are open to customization.

Being a product development company, we added several verticals like storage calculator and storage websites to give users the one-stop shop for all your online storage management needs. Then in 2018, we searched for an affordable gate access system for 1Spazio (70 units). Frustrated.. and confused with the price & legacy of integration.. we scratched our own itch… in short, we developed our own gate access solution (6Security) which allows global storage owners to secure their facility without relying on the support of an onboard computer. Ronald is the head of the operations and we work along as partners. We’re excited to help you on your journey of life!
