When he split up with his girlfriend, Anthony Paine needed to store his stuff somewhere fast. As he shut the door of their flat for the final time, the irony struck him that there must be lots of people with space to spare nearby, if only he could connect with them.

It is one of a growing number of storage start-ups worldwide testing the boundaries of the tech-fuelled sharing economy.
