StorageTown, Cebu's premier state-of-the-art self-storage facility, is trusted by many to keep their business and personal items secure. In order to provide the best service to all those who rely on them, StorageTown has to ensure that the items entrusted to them are safe from customer pick-up to their facility. With this in mind, they've partnered with Lalamove to help with their on-demand delivery needs for big and bulk items.
We spoke with Chaz Cokaliong of StorageTown to learn about their story and how they are changing and challenging the growing business landscape in Cebu!

StorageTown is a joint project and business of the Cokaliong siblings, Chase, Chesna, Chanel, and Chaz. The siblings are no strangers to the world of entrepreneurship as they hail from one of the most prolific business families in Cebu who owns the Cokaliong Shipping Lines. As third-generation Cebuano entrepreneurs, Chaz told us that they've always had the knack for finding and knowing business opportunities that aim to help other Cebuano businesses grow, which is why they started StorageTown.
Now, StorageTown offers over 60 different storage sizes for the needs of any Cebuano who needs to optimize their business operations or simply declutter.
"Lalamove's affordable on-demand MPV and Light Truck delivery has been instrumental in making operations smoother"

Chaz said he and his siblings dreamt big, so they've really invested in making sure that their storage facility is top-notch. They've also acquired in-house delivery vehicles such as trucks in order to help their customers move their big and bulky items. However, in-house delivery can only do so much. As their business is growing, so is the demand for their service, which is why they sought for a delivery partner that can help them with their logistics need anywhere within Cebu.
However, this delivery partner can't just be any logistics company. It is important for StorageTown to be able to extend the same high-quality service to their customers be it with their in-house delivery or third-party logistics (3PL) provider. Aside from a wide delivery coverage in Cebu, their logistics partner has to be cost-efficient, scalable and trusted by Cebuano businesses. Luckily, they found such delivery partner, and that was Lalamove.
When the siblings saw the demand of their service growing, they knew they had to get professional support, especially with logistics. This is when they found Lalamove, Asia's leading on-demand delivery app that is also available in Cebu. Lalamove's wide array of 4-wheel vehicles options from delivery vans and light trucks for trucking service was perfect for StorageTown's logistics needs. Since these vehicles could be booked on-demand, they were easily scalable.
Aside from the scalability of Lalamove's courier services, Chaz said that the delivery rates of Lalamove is business-friendly. With MPVs starting at ₱225 only, businesses can enjoy cost-effective same-day delivery at the palm of their hands.

Lalamove's services also reach far and wide in Cebu with a delivery coverage spanning Metro Cebu up until Minglanilla down south, Lilo-an to the North, whole island of Mactan to the East, and Busay on the West. With this wide delivery coverage, StorageTown is able to serve and reach more Cebuano businesses who wants to avail of Cebu's first state-of-the-art self-storage facility.
There's nowhere to go but up for StorageTown. As businesses in Cebu grow, so would the demand for smart and insightful business solutions such as storage facilities. And with Lalamove by their side, StorageTown is just going to keep growing.
