Space comes at a premium in Hong Kong. So locals and expats have learned how to optimize their limited dwelling areas by carefully measuring furniture items they buy at IKEA or simply not buying extra fancy things that can only take up more space and less available for humans. B
ut there are other things that we learn on how to save more space at home. It includes storing winter clothing and stuff you own but do not immediately need such as suitcase.
While suitcases can double as storage containers for winter/summer wear depending on season, or other purposes, they occupy space which can matter to a newcomer forced to stay in a cramped studio apartment no thanks to the high rental rates landlords demand.
So a company has reused the noble idea of sharing the same way Uber, Airbnb and Zipcar do their business: Rent-A-Suitcase.
With such service, travelers can simply book their desired Rimowa or Travelmax suitcases whose leases are charged daily and varies by size or model. For example, a Rimowa Limbo is HK$72 per day.
While you’re at it, the shop also offers GoPro action camera rentals from HK$50 to HK$60 per day if you wish to capture those travel adventures. We know GoPro may not take so much space at home but it can also cost a fortune especially if you don’t use it that often.
