July 17, 2017 // Franchising.com // WASHINGTON D.C. – Zippy Shell, the fastest-growing business in both the moving and storage industries, announced today that it is now offering onsite, portable storage solutions to customers in key markets across the country.
Renowned as the most prominent and disruptive force in the moving and storage industries, Zippy Shell is providing customers access to portable containers, which they can rent and load themselves. Designed to fit into the places that other portable storage solutions can’t, Zippy Shell’s onsite containers are ideal for construction contractors storing materials at a build site, customers who are renovating their homes and want to keep their personal belongings safe and nearby during the process, parks or outdoor venues seeking easy access to their seasonal supplies and more.
“When Hurricane Sandy hit our Long Island location in 2012, customers were in desperate need of affordable, reliable onsite storage solutions to help them through the repair and rebuilding process. After seeing the impact these containers had on our customers in Long Island, we knew they would be invaluable to fit a variety of needs,” said Rick Del Sontro, president of Zippy Shell. “Our onsite containers are ergonomically designed to fit perfectly onto a flatbed trailer that can be placed in areas that other storage providers can’t, while also reducing the cost of delivery and pick-up, allowing us to serve even more customers looking for truly customizable storage solutions.”
Saving people time, space and money, the Zippy Shell onsite storage solutions are currently available in select markets throughout the United States, including Salt Lake City; Atlanta; Washington, D.C.; Phoenix, Arizona; Columbus, Ohio; Tampa, Florida; Seattle; and Denver. Additional markets will be added in the near future.
Zippy Shell bridges the gap between moving and storage in a cost-effective way. Efficiencies are achieved on several levels, including Zippy Shell’s open-air, lightweight containers that are uniquely designed to be shipped inside a traditional dry van or freight truck and then can be collapsed and easily shipped back at freight rates that are much less costly than other containers. Further, customer convenience and security are prioritized through Zippy Shell storage services in nearby warehouses until ready for hauling or unloading.
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.
