How Phil Murphy Disrupted His Industry 1 Box At A TimeBY: Tim Jahn | October 8, 2010
Phil Murphy owns several traditional public storage facilities in Illinois. After having dinner with a friend and hearing horror stories about how his friend spent $60 in cab fare to get to a traditional public storage facility, Phil knew something had to change.
So he created StorageByTheBox.com, a website that allows anybody to put stuff in storage by simply sending it in boxes via FedEx. When you need your stuff again, you log on to StorageByTheBox.com, select which box you need, and it comes back to you via FedEx. No $60 cab fares, no driving to the storage unit.
Watch my video interview above with Phil to learn how he disrupted his own industry one box at a time!
