About Us

Space Next Door is inspired by the sharing economy in which we hope to encourage people to put up their unused space so that users looking for personal or business storage space have better options, closer to where they need it. We are striving to build a trusted community marketplace for you to list, discover and book the nearest and best space at affordable prices.

Having spent more than a decade in the storage industry and after renting out millions of square feet of space to tens of thousands of customers, we are passionate about helping you discover new ways to organise and use your space.

Mike Hagbeck

Founder & CEO

Today's dynamic business environment requires leaders to possess basic functional skills and the ability to spot opportunities and keep with the trends. These attributes are rarely found in the same person, given their diverse requirements. Mike Hagbeck continues to build his reputation in the storage industry by developing heritage markets and exploring trailblazing possibilities.

Two decades since entering the industry in Australia, he has helmed a number of significant companies to develop a comprehensive understanding of the industry practices in the region — from Singapore to China, Australia to South Korea. Mike has embraced technology to develop an innovative way of maximising unutilised spaces; at a micro level. His brainchild, Space Next Door, opens new opportunities to match available space with needs at a global level.
