Chexology

New York
We started the “old fashioned way” as coat checkers using paper claim tickets. At that time, we became well-aware of the century-old stigma: by walking into a checkroom, you’ll experience long lines and lost or damaged items.
Our mission is to eliminate the claim ticket and bring speed and trust to the checkroom.
