Bio
Based on an Australian concept, Zippy Shell first came to the U.S. and began franchising in 2009. Zippy Shell franchisees deliver trailers containing storage containers to customers' homes and businesses. The customers then fill the container at their own speed and when finished, Zippy Shell will pick it up and store it in a climate-controlled facility.
