Boxful is a Hong Kong company that provides self-storage box services. Boxes can be delivered to and from customers' addresses.[1][2] Boxful does not allow public access to the warehouses, and only staff are permitted to access its secured facilities.[citation needed] The company was launched in January 2015 with $1.5 million USD ($12 Million HKD) of seed funding.[2] Boxful currently serves Hong Kong Island, the New Territories, and Kowloon.

In June 2015, Boxful has completed an additional US$6.6 million Series A funding round from investors including real estate firms Great Eagle, Carlton Holdings and Soundwill Holdings.[3] Chinese conglomerate Tinghsin Group, and VC firms Arocrest Capital, Singapore’s Lonsdale Capital and Vega Properties rounded out its backers, bringing their total funding to US$8.1 million ($51.1 million HKD).
