Hassle-free Moving and Storage
Committed to Exceptional Service
The Zippy Shell concept was founded in 2007 in Australia by Gareth Taylor and Adam Gilchrist, and was one of Australia's first mobile storage businesses. It operated there for two years, building a customer base of over 500 storage customers before being sold as a Master Franchise to Grace Removals Group, one of Asia’s largest moving companies.
In 2010 Zippy Shell USA, LLC launched in the United States. The mission was clear - give the convenience of portable storage at the cost of traditional. Our unique shell and container model saves you time, money and back pain.
We like to keep things simple. We deliver a storage container to you and your stuff gets loaded. When you're ready, we'll pick up your shell and store it safely. Need something from your shell or to have it delivered to your new place? Give us a call and we will deliver your stuff back to you. It's as easy as that.
Zippy Shell was established in June 2009 by executives in the franchise industry, who were interested to acquire the Master Franchise Rights to franchise the Zippy Shell system across the United States. The executive team, each with 15 or more years of franchising experience, worked together as senior executives at Cendant Corporation and Realogy Corporation. They are considered some of the most seasoned franchising professionals in the US.
