Local Moving and Storage in New Orleans & Surrounding Areas


With space in Southern Louisiana at a premium, Zippy Shell has your back.

Zippy Shell’s local moving and storage services work for you on all fronts—from portable storage containers to local and long-distance moving, your belongings are safe with us. Our innovative equipment design and flexible service options are delivering on our commitment to make local/long distance moving and storage in New Orleans simple.


Moving Made Simple


Whether you’re moving across town or across the country, Zippy Shell’s convenient storage containers and moving services make your relocation a breeze.

Before you rent that costly moving truck and carve out a few days from your schedule, get acquainted with Zippy Shell’s comprehensive moving and storage process:


We deliver the Shell to your door. With Zippy Shell, there’s no need to drive across town to rent a clunky moving truck. Our team delivers containers to fit your move, where you want them, and when you need them. Each 15 foot container can fit approximately 2-3 rooms.


The container is loaded with your belongings. With your container positioned exactly where you need it and access to Zippy Shell’s tools and ramps, loading your stuff into a shell has never been easier. You have the option of taking your time over the course of a few days, or if you’re in a rush our team will load it up for you.

Our team retrieves your container and delivers it to your destination. Once the shell is loaded up, we retrieve it and deliver it so you don’t have to.


The container is unloaded, and you’re all set! After the Shell is delivered and unloaded, all you have left to do is settle in. Unloading is just as easy as loading, and our team is more than happy to help you in the process.


Zippy Shell also provides moving blankets, boxes, straps, tape, and anything else you may need to protect your belongings and make your move easier.

Zippy Shell’s innovative containers fit inside a trailer that is attached to a truck with a trailer hitch while other companies require a hydraulic system to load and unload containers from a flatbed. This means we’re in-and-out quicker than you can say “storage,” and the container is easily maneuverable, making it easy to park in the most congested urban environments. They don’t call us Zippy for nothing!

When you move with Zippy Shell, there are no more cumbersome moving trucks, rushes to move everything in one day, long trips to storage lots, and, most importantly the hassles or headaches that can accompany the transition of moving.


On-Site Storage

Our containers do much more than transport your prized possessions from point A to B. Zippy Shell’s containers are great for temporary on-site storage as well. They’re durable, theft-proof, weather-resistant, and designed to keep your things in perfect condition until you need them again.

The process for Zippy Shell’s on-site storage is similar to our moving solutions. Zippy Shell delivers the container and offers the option to load it for you. When you’re done with the container, we come and pick it up any time. If you need additional space, we’re more than happy to bring you as many containers as you need.

If you’re downsizing, you’ll love the freedom our containers provide. They safely store your items until you know what you want to do with them, and they can be placed anywhere on your property to be as out-of-the-way as possible. Say goodbye to that distracting clutter.

On-site storage containers are also great for home renovations. When your workshop is your backyard or driveway, you don’t want to leave your tools on the street where they’re in the way and vulnerable to theft and weather damage. Our containers protect and organize these items as well as keep them close. No more lugging heavy machinery between the worksite and your home or shed!

Our containers are also ideal during remodeling projects. Instead of moving heavy furniture out of the way during that process, simply store your things safely and out of the way for the duration of the project. With on-site storage, your belongings are always right where you need them, and there’s no need to drive across town or have them delivered.

Our on-site storage containers are perfect for those occasional use items such as:

  • Sports equipment
  • Tools and machinery
  • Furniture needing to be stored during remodeling



Long Term Storage

If you’re in need of climate controlled storage that you would rather not have on your property, Zippy Shell has a solution for this as well.

On-site storage is great for short-term and temporary solutions, but we recommend our on demand, climate controlled storage option if you are needing a longer term solution. Ideal for the looming storm season, cross-country moving, or general decluttering.

Just like our moving and on-site storage options, the container is delivered right to your door.  The only difference is once your container is filled we transport it back to our climate-controlled facility to store for you. When you are ready for your belongings back, simply give us a call or email to schedule your redelivery back to you, anywhere nationwide.

This storage solution is also perfect for your more delicate items that require special care. Our secure and climate-controlled facility protects your things from the elements and eliminates the risk of theft and damage.

If you’re selling your home, the last thing you want to do is stage it poorly. A cluttered or over-personalized home can be off-putting to buyers. Buyers want to imagine their own belongings and lives fitting into a new space. Using Zippy Shell’s climate-controlled containerized system allows you to stage your home like a pro by having your belongings safely kept off property.

With Zippy Shell, your belongings are only a phone call away. When you need something on the fly, our team delivers your Shell to where you need it so you can access your things quickly.

The entire staff was great from the original reservation to movers. We had the shell packed up, stored for 3 months, and then delivered. Both moving crews were awesome! I love that they use their own people instead of outsourcing them like other companies. I can’t recommend them enough. Best service, best price, best people.
