About us

At LuggageHero, we want to lighten your load, in all ways. We don’t want you to have to drag your luggage all over a city or hunt for the elusive storage locker, where you need exact change in the right currency. LuggageHero comes to your rescue with our growing network of luggage storage sites in New York, London, and Copenhagen – with more to come.

Jannik Lawaetz founded LuggageHero in 2016 after dragging around his own luggage too many times. He created a peer-to-peer economy-sharing concept that is easy to use, trustworthy, and where customers pay only for the hours their luggage is stored. He started in his hometown of Copenhagen, and later expanded to London and New York City in 2017.

We look forward to lightening your load.

Jannik Lawaetz founder LuggageHero

I founded LuggageHero as I got tired of not having enough convenient places to store my luggage. As I am a frequent traveler, I couldn’t believe that anyone had not solved a problem so obvious to many people.

I decided to create a concept that was simple to use, trustworthy and where you would always only pay for the hours you spend. Copenhagen would then be the first city in the world to offer certified LuggageHeroes looking after your luggage.

We decided to move the concept to London after being successful in Copenhagen. London is the 2nd most visited city in the world and being there helping travelers every day is a great pleasure. Next city will become New York City opening at the end of 2017, and soon more cities will come.
