So you may be wondering, what is De-Kahon and why did we start this service?
We at De-Kahon felt that for many of us living in Metro Manila, specially those who live in small spaces like dorms, apartments, condominiums, or small homes; space is getting harder and harder to come by. Living in Metro Manila can be stressful already, and having chaos and clutter at home does not help.
Clutter causes stress, and clutter is one of the main barriers of productivity.
So late last year, we decided to set up De-Kahon. The idea behind De-Kahon was simple: we will provide a completely on-demand storage service for residents of Metro Manila (at least initially), that will allow them to expand the space for their stuff quickly and easily. To better understand the service, you really have to understand that there are just four steps to the service:
- Scheduling and booking
You simply create an account in our website, log-in and schedule a time and place for our storage boxes to be delivered to you. Creating an account is absolutely free with no obligations whatsoever until you actually store your stuff with us.
- Delivery and tracking
We will deliver to you durable plastic boxes with tamper-evident seals. Store your stuff inside, then track them online in our website by posting photos and descriptions of what you stored in each box.
- Collection and storage
In our website, simply schedule a time for us to pick up your stuff and have it stored for safekeeping at our secure warehouse. Pay monthly online for the storage, no lengthy contracts, down payments, or other such nonsense. No hidden fees, taxes and insurance automatically included in the price!
- Returns on demand
When you need your stuff back, simply log back in to our website and schedule which of your boxes in storage you want delivered back to you. We will deliver it to you or anyone you choose to receive it anywhere as long as its within Metro Manila, within 24 hours. You can have just one or all of the boxes returned.
It really is that simple! As our tagline says:
Madali lang yan! De-kahon lang yan!
