April 27, 2017 // Franchising.com // TAMPA, Fla. – Zippy Shell is zapping the age-old moving and storage model in Tampa Bay. The fastest growing business in both the moving and storage industries is pulling its chic-looking shell into Tampa.
Easily recognized for its bright blue shell carrying storage containers, Zippy Shell is set to open late April. Its arrival in Tampa Bay means homeowners and businesses throughout greater Tampa will have access to the most innovative and affordable moving and portable storage services in the nation.
Local resident and entrepreneur Luigi Del Basso is opening the business and will be managing daily operations. With experience founding a startup software business, Del Basso has the expertise and fortitude to successfully manage and run the new business. With help from his team, Del Basso is prepared to support families, students and businesses moving throughout Tampa amid life’s big transitions.
“Tampa is a vibrant city with an increasing need for easily accessible and reasonably priced moving and storage options,” said Del Basso. “Whether you’re relocating across the country or to a nearby town, our goal is to help ease the transport process and alleviate the stress that comes with moving. I’m confident that Zippy Shell will have a strong impact on residents and businesses throughout the community, and I look forward to introducing our services to Tampa.”
Establishing itself as a prominent and disruptive force in the moving and storage industries, Zippy Shell excels in its competitive space by offering customers a simple cost-effective way to securely transport or store their personal belongings.
At the forefront of innovation, Zippy Shell’s containers are open-air, lightweight units uniquely designed to be shipped inside traditional dry vans or via national freight lines, and then can be collapsed and easily shipped back at rates that are much less costly than other containers. This cost-effective model allows Zippy Shell to pass savings onto its customers, and the delivery system ensures better mobility through urban and suburban downtown, as well as access to more locations across the country.
Zippy Shell also recently launched a new all-weather storage container that can remain outside on various properties and withstand the elements to keep items inside safe. The new product propels Zippy Shell’s ability to work with a greater number of commercial business customers.
In addition to the transport services, the brand’s containers can also be stored in a nearby climate-controlled Zippy Shell facility until customers are ready to have the container hauled for unloading. And as a testament to the brand’s commitment to providing exceptional customer service, consumers can customize their jobs and opt to have their items packed and loaded into the container by a trained and efficient Zippy Shell moving crew. To ensure a quick and hassle-free experience, all orders are promptly processed via the brand’s mobile-friendly website or call center and directed to the customer’s local Zippy Shell office.
“It’s clear that Luigi has a passion for the industry and shares our commitment to providing high quality service to his community,” said Rick Del Sontro, President of Zippy Shell. “We are proud to have Luigi as a partner and look forward to supporting his endeavors as he establishes his business and grows the Zippy Shell brand throughout the region.”
As a national provider of portable storage and moving solutions, Zippy Shell has a network of franchise locations and licensed partners to seamlessly provide customers with an array of services ranging from self-pack storage to full service relocation.
With 51 locations across the country, Zippy Shell’s emergence in Tampa Bay comes on the heels of the brand’s strategic expansion plan to double its U.S. presence in the next three years and to expand the company’s innovative services into key markets coast-to-coast.
