Under the partnership agreement, Lifull will offer OyoLife users a month’s free access to a shared storage facility. Rental trunk rooms will later be offered at half the monthly rent because it makes effective use of empty space at home and offices. There will be no initial cost. Luggage in the rental space is covered by compensation service.
OyoLife’s users can post a listing on Lifull TrunkRoom for free. Lifull owns two other rental services for motorcycle parking and conference rooms which are operated by its subsidiary Lifull Space. Its flagship service is property site Homes.co.jp and its overseas businesses include aggregator Trovit and digital classified group Mitula. Based in Tokyo, Lifull has a presence in 57 countries.
