Zippy Shell of Jacksonville, owned and operated by Joe and his son, Bobby Bowers, will play a huge part in growing the Zippy Shell national footprint. "On behalf of Bobby and I, we are delighted to be the newest members of the Zippy Shell Family. We were very impressed with the Zippy Shell Ownership, Directors and Corporate Associates on our initial trip to Washington, D.C.," said Joe Bowers. "We are convinced that Zippy Shell is the most cost effective moving and storage alternative in the market today and we are excited to have this business opportunity.
