COLUMBUS, Ohio – Zippy Shell Greater Columbus, a part of the fastest growing national franchise business in both the moving and storage industries, has earned a top honor from its loyal customers. The team was awarded the “2017 CBUS Top Pick” by The Columbus Dispatch in the moving and storage category.

I think so highly of my team and this recognition exemplifies our dedication to the industry and customers we serve.”

The “CBUS Top Picks” are chosen by Columbus residents, who nominate their favorite businesses in more than 100 categories. The businesses are then voted on and the top three businesses with the most votes in each category receive this “CBus Top Pick” title for the year that the award is given.

“The Greater Columbus team exceeds our expectations every year,” said Rick Del Sontro, president of Zippy Shell. “They are always ready to go above and beyond what they are expected. We are grateful to have them on board in the Zippy Shell family and are delighted to hear that they were recognized.”

Zippy Shell provides a simple solution for moving and storage services in markets across the nation.
