Offlod is a Canada based company that offers simple, safe, insured and secure platform to find and list storage and parking spaces within your own trusted community. The idea of Offlod has emerged during the onset of the novel coronavirus in North America when WHO declared it to be a pandemic. With a declining economy predicted to be worse than the Great Depression, and growing unemployment rates, we wanted to help the community in a way that helps people generate passive income. Knowing that every penny counts in these times of financial uncertainty while we wait for a vaccine; the idea was to bring a platform where people can use their existing resources without any investment to make money. From empty rooms and garages to restaurants and small businesses that have closed or reduced operations; many of us in the community may have unused space waiting to be put to use.
We realised these spaces can be used for storage or even for parking, which gave us an idea that people who have the resource of space, can rent it out for people who need it. These spaces can be rented out at an affordable cost and easily accessible within the community.
We wanted to provide a platform that is simple, safe and secure to connect Renters looking for storage space with Hosts who have that space available. During the era of pandemic, hosting goods seems much safer than hosting accommodation for people.
