Zippy Shell Moving and Storage Announces Continuation of Rapid Expansion With Sale of Wilmington, NC

August 07, 2013 // // Washington, D.C. – Zippy Shell USA, LLC announced the sale of a new franchise location in Wilmington, NC. This sale marks a continuation of rapid expansion throughout the United States with no signs of slowing. Zippy Shell of Wilmington will be the third location to open in North Carolina and is scheduled to launch in October of this year under the ownership Patrick and Erin Alderson.

Patrick and Erin began their Zippy Shell(sm) journey not as potential investors, but as customers. Deciding to move to New York City from Raleigh, NC, Patrick contacted the local Zippy Shell location in Raleigh for storage services, needing to considerably downsize their North Carolina home for their move to Manhattan.

Immediately impressed with the seamlessness and the quality of customer service, they began researching further into the Zippy Shell concept. The couple had been searching for a franchise opportunity, but never considered mobile moving and storage until Zippy Shell was delivered to their doorstep. After visiting with the corporate office in Washington, DC, the Alderson’s decided to cut their stay in New York short, moving back to North Carolina to open their own Zippy Shell location.

Patrick commented, "We could not be more excited to bring the Zippy Shell solution to the New Hanover County Market to serve the growing number of people who call the Wilmington area home. After using the Zippy Shell system for our own storage needs, there is absolutely no doubt that we will be providing New Hanover County residents with the most convenient and effortless storage option in the area.”

The Zippy Shell opportunity has revolutionized the portable self-storage marketing by utilizing a light-weight, mobile shell and container system, perfect for both residential and business customers.

Zippy Shell USA President, Rick Del Sontro stated, "We have always believed that our services were really great and created value. In this case one franchisees tremendous service led to another opportunity for Patrick and Erin. We are very excited about them opening in the Wilmington market".
