Cost Effective and Cutting Edge Concept to Redefine Moving and Storage Locally
PHILADELPHIA – Zippy Shell is transforming the age-old moving and storage model in Pennsylvania. The fastest growing franchise business in both the moving and storage industries is pulling its chic-looking shell into Philadelphia and parts of South Jersey and Delaware.
Easily recognized for its bright blue shell carrying storage containers, Zippy Shell is set to open February 1. Its arrival in Philadelphia means residents and businesses throughout the region will have access to the most innovative and affordable moving and portable storage services in the nation.
Stephen Masha, the president of Zippy Shell of Greater Philadelphia, is opening the business and will be managing daily operations alongside support from other key family members, including his wife, Ashley Masha. As a serial entrepreneur with previous ownership experience in the real estate industry, Stephen is prepared to support families, students and businesses moving throughout Philadelphia amid life’s big transitions.
“Philly is becoming an increasingly popular area for millennials and baby boomers to live, and they’re all looking for a moving and storage option that’s easily accessible and reasonably priced,” said Stephen. “Whether you’re downsizing, moving to the suburbs or packing up for the city, our top priority is making the process easy and stress-free. I’ve heard countless moving horror stories while in the real estate business, and I’m confident Zippy Shell will leave a positive impact on the Philly community and eliminate any fear that comes with relocating.”
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, secure, 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.
“Stephen has a unique perspective on the moving and storage industry and a proven commitment to delivering high-quality service, said Rick Del Sontro, President of Zippy Shell. “The Masha family embodies everything we look for in our partners, and we’re proud to have them on board. Their enthusiasm for the business will undoubtedly contribute to their success and help grow the Zippy Shell brand throughout the region.”
As a national provider of portable moving and storage 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 Philadelphia 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.
