Problem

Lackofspace

When it comes to storing items, we’re confronted with 3 recurring problems :

1. Lack of space

Have you ever thought you would be better off with more space ?

Over the years, people are living in smaller and smaller spaces. This trend will continue as demographic growth exceeds the growth of housing spaces. Over the last 15 years, the average surface for housing in Belgium has decreased by 19%*.

2. Lack of time

Have you ever thought that you are lacking time to do everything you need to do ?

If you are, be reassured, you’re not the only one. 73% of Belgians have declared that they believe so*. It is obvious that as the world evolves faster and faster, we wish to accomplish more and more things. Unfortunately, a day only counts 24 hours.

3. Difficulty of transportation

Lets be honest, transportation in big cities is a living nightmare.

As a matter of fact, Belgium is at the top of the most traffic congested countries of Europe. Even if you account for North American countries, Belgium still maintains its top position ! The cities of Brussels and Antwerp rank above cities of the likes of New York or Paris in terms of daily traffic congestion*.

In just ten years time, on a worldwide scale, the amount of automobiles in circulation has increased by almost 25%. Belgium is, once again, well above the European average.
