Zippy Shell Opens First Portable Self Storage Service in Manhattan

The portable self storage and moving company expands its services to Manhattan

January 22, 2015 // // Washington, D.C. - Zippy Shell is proud to announce the grand opening of the company's first franchise location in Manhattan. Zippy Shell is the first portable self-storage operation to break ground in the Manhattan market.

"I am thrilled today to celebrate the grand opening of the first portable self-service storage and moving service in Manhattan," said Phillip Kim, president and owner of Zippy Shell Manhattan. "I look forward to helping the many people in NYC who are seeking simpler solutions for their storage needs."

With its grand opening, Zippy Shell of Manhattan joined 40 markets added to Zippy Shell in 2014. Zippy Shell anticipates growing to 250-300 markets by 2020, making Zippy Shell one of the fastest growing companies in portable self-storage.

"I knew that Zippy Shell's unique storage and moving solution was going to grow, but opening in Manhattan is a dream come true," said Rick Del Sontro, CEO of Zippy Shell. "I can think of no other market that could benefit more from our services!"

Unlike urban storage competitors, Zippy Shell provides a simple solution to large-scale storage and moving needs. The company delivers the Zippy Shell unit in front of a residence where the customer loads their belongings, and Zippy Shell will take it away; either to their new home or a nearby storage facility.
