The Benefits of Long Term Storage in New Orleans With Zippy Shell Louisiana

The search for long term storage in New Orleans can be discouraging, but it doesn’t have to be.

Contrary to traditional long term storage services from other companies, Zippy Shell does the tedious work for you. That means no more time-consuming trips between your home and a distant storage facility to access your belongings. Our comprehensive long term storage process follows four easy steps:

We drop the container off wherever you need it. It doesn’t matter if you live in a rural area with open space or a congested downtown condo. Zippy Shell’s containers are extremely maneuverable and fit wherever you need them to.

Your shell is loaded. If you need a few days to sort through your things and pack carefully, then you’re free to take as long as you need. However, if you need the job done quickly, we’re more than happy to do the heavy lifting for you and load it ourselves.

We return to pick up your loaded shell so you don’t have to make the trip to our storage facility.

We store your container at our secure facility. After we pick up your container, we drive it out to our secure, climate-controlled facility to carefully store your belongings. This way, you have peace of mind knowing that your items are safe and sound.

Zippy Shell’s long term storage is perfect for people who are downsizing, moving, or looking to keep family heirlooms and other valuable items in safe hands.

Although we offer convenient on-site storage solutions for things like home renovation and occasional-use items, keeping your belongings outside for a long period of time isn’t recommended no matter how weatherproof and durable the on-site storage container is. That’s why Zippy Shell offers long term storage in our secure and climate-controlled facilities that stand up to storms, heat waves, and are impervious to burglary and theft.

We also offer insurance plans to make sure your belongings are protected on all fronts.

Innovative Long Term Storage in New Orleans

When you use Zippy Shell’s long term storage, your belongings are always just a phone call away. Because we value each customer, we make retrieving your belongings as easy as possible. If you need anything at all, we gather your container and bring it directly to your front door.

Since the costs of long term storage or moving can add up quickly, at Zippy Shell we strive to make the process as quick and painless. We provide blankets, boxes, and other tools that help you get the job done. All you need to do is get in contact with your local Zippy Shell operator to begin organizing and preparing your long term storage or moving service package.

If our transportation service isn’t convenient for your situation or circumstances, you’re more than welcome to bring your belongings directly to our storage facility, too. Upon your arrival, we stage a container for you right outside that you can load up on-site. If you choose this option, you can even bypass the small delivery fee.


Zippy Shell’s Best Long Term Storage Tips

To get the most out of Zippy Shell’s long term storage services, consider trying the following tips:

  • Use plastic bins and containers. Although cardboard is the most readily-available storage option, it will begin to deform and break under the weight of your belongings. On top of that, cardboard boxes aren’t airtight and reusable. To make sure your items are stored in the best possible condition, use plastic bins with lids. Plastic bins are easier to stack, airtight, durable, and can be reused over and over again.
  • Label your boxes accurately. When considering long term storage, you may forget where you put a certain item among all the boxes in your shell. That’s why it’s a good idea to label which room the box pertains to and roughly what its contents are. This will make sure your stuff is easier to locate after long periods of time.
  • Save space by disassembling all you can. Things like beds, lamps, and dressers can take up quite a bit of space. They’re also heavy and awkward to transport. To combat this, disassemble everything you can to maximize your storage potential and make loading and unloading your shell that much easier.
  • Pack heavier things first and lighter things last. If you choose to pack the container yourself, it’s important to remember that things get heavy quickly. The heavier and bulkier items withstand weight and prolonged stress for longer, so be sure to load those in the back and on the bottom of the pile. The last thing you want is for your stuff to get crushed!

Following these quick tips will ensure that you get the most out of your Zippy Shell long term storage experience, and your prized possessions will thank you too!

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.
