Zippy Shell is a company that describes themselves as a portable storage company whose goal is to help people with all their storage and moving needs.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, most people understand how frustrating and difficult moving can be, which is why Zippy Shell decided to offer people a solution that could make their lives and the process of moving much easier.
When you order your Zippy Shell, the container will be delivered directly to your house. The container is the same width as a standard vehicle, it is on wheels, and it has a license plate, so it is legally allowed to be parked any place that a regular vehicle would be allowed.
When customers order their storage container, they will have to indicate whether they intend to pack and load the container themselves over the course of the three days the container is there, or whether they would prefer that Zippy Shell employees load the container themselves.
Once your container is full, the company will pick it up and drive it to their climate controlled storage facility, where it will wait until you order it to be redelivered to your new address. The website says that they have the ability to move their customers “coast to coast” in just seven to ten business days.
Cost & Price Plans
The price Zippy Shell charges will depend entirely on your personal circumstances, including:
- Number of shipping containers you order,
- How long the containers remain in storage
- Whether you choose to pack and load the container yourself
- Or have the company both pack and load the container.
The website will let you input your information and provide you with a quote regarding the cost of the specific service you believe you will order.
The website does say that you will be charged a $159 monthly storage rate, and that the delivery fee you are quoted includes dropping the container off and picking it up.
Customers will also need to pay a redelivery fee when it comes time to drop the container off at their new home.
The website does not appear to provide any information to their customers on an available Refund Policy.
Instead, this is something customers should discuss with the Zippy Shell team before they formally arrange to have the storage container delivered to their home.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact their Customer Service team with questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone at 888-947-7974, by email at [email protected], or by submitting them directly to their website through their Contact Us link.
Though there are not many places where you can find reviews of this service, the few reviews which are available appear to be generally very positive and customers seem very satisfied with this company and their services overall.
The one thing customers should know about this company, however, is that their storage containers are open containers that resemble cages more than a traditional storage box.
The company says that this provides a better standard of care for your belongings, but since most customers expect storage units to be entirely closed, it is something customers should be aware of before the container arrives at your home.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are many other companies that promise these same kinds of storage container moving services, including well known companies like Pods.
So if you are unhappy with the cost of their services or any other aspect of this company, you do have other options available to you.
