PODS VS. ZIPPY SHELL FOR MOVING & STORAGE
WHY CHOOSE PODS VS. ZIPPY SHELL?
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 when you compare Zippy Shell to PODS, 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 Service for Moving Companies
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, beating competitors like Zippy Shell.
ZIPPY SHELL DISADVANTAGES VS. PODS
ZIPPY SHELL'S 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 portable 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.
ZIPPY SHELL'S 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 for your long-distance move, local move or outdoor storage project. So, you can relax and work at your own pace.
ZIPPY SHELL'S 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 indoor storage unit facilities 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.
DON'T COMPROMISE size & QUALITY FOR U-Box's CHEAPER PRICE
Our 20 years of experience and huge, nationwide network of portable moving and storage facilities 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.
