PODS VS. Zippy Shell

Zippy Shell vs PODS

WHY ZIPPY SHELL DOESN’T MEASURE UP TO PODS

Copycats are nothing new. Ever since 1998, when we pioneered portable moving and storage to make it easier and less stressful for our customers, companies like Zippy Shell have popped up everywhere. But they can’t match our experience, fleet size, or huge national network. In fact, it’s not even close. Take a look for yourself.

PODS RANKS #1 IN CUSTOMER SATISFACTION FOR MOVING

PODS moving and storage

It’s always nice to get some love, especially when it’s in recognition of how we treat our customers. That’s why we’re excited to announce that an independent survey commissioned by Newsweek Magazine ranked PODS #1 in customer satisfaction for the moving category. 
 

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR IF YOU’RE LOOKING AT ZIPPY SHELL

PODS moving and storage

Inferior container quality

If you’re going to pack your stuff into a container for moving or storage, you’d naturally prefer one that’s solid and secure. PODS checks that box, with sturdy, steel-framed containers that are weather resistant. Zippy Shell containers are essentially steel cages transported in a pull-behind trailer. So, if you need to store your stuff in their facility, it’s going to be in a steel cage in a warehouse, where it may be exposed to dust and pests. It also means your stuff is on display for everyone in the warehouse to see.

Tight time constraints

Nobody likes being rushed during something as complex as a move. But that’s exactly what some of our competitors do. In the case of a long distance move, for instance, Zippy Shell only gives you three days to load your container and only one day to unload. Better hope for good weather! PODS, on the other hand, gives you all the time you need to load and unload. So, you can relax and work a your own pace.

LIMITED SERVICE AREA AND CONTAINER AVAILABILITY

PODS has been a portable moving and storage pioneer since 1998. As a result we’ve built up a huge fleet of over 200,000 containers with locations and Storage Centers nationwide. We serve 47 states, including Hawaii, as well as parts of Canada, the UK, and Australia. Like some of our other competitors, Zippy Shell has a limited container fleet and far fewer locations, so availability may be an issue depending on where you are and where you’re moving.

COMPROMISED QUALITY FOR A CHEAPER PRICE

Our 20 years of experience and huge, nationwide network means we’ve become very efficient. But we’ll never compromise on the excellent quality of our service, which is reflected in our #1 ranking for customer service by Newsweek. So if you see a better price out there, think about what they had to compromise on to get there.
