Moving back home from college for the summer as the semester comes to a close right now? Zippy Shell can help you store your belongings for the summer. Instead of having to move all of your belongings back home for the summer, just to have to move them all back in the fall, have Zippy Shell store them at one of our climate-controlled storage centers. This is especially helpful for out-of-state students who have to fly back home for the summer. Don’t waste your money shipping your belongings back and forth just for one summer. Even if your home is within driving distance from your school, having to load up an entire car full of every possession you need can be a hassle. Instead, have Zippy Shell deliver one of our storage shells right to your college housing where you can load up all of your items. Once the shell is loaded we will pick it up and deliver it back to our storage center for the summer. Your items will be safe and secure and will promptly be delivered back to you in the fall when you need them!

When it comes to electronics, the cables and wires that go with each electronic item may get confusing. Label each of these with their corresponding piece to make assembling easier when you are ready to take them out of storage.
Take apart your electronics when needed for safe transportation/storage. Electronics with big battery packs or multiple pieces should be disassembled. This will prevent the possibility of the battery leaking or the pieces being damaged.
Back up your information
If you are storing important items such as a computer, phone, etc. make sure you have all the information within these items that you need. Also, be sure to back up any documents that you may need before you remove the item from storage.
To ensure your items do not bump or scratch against each other or the storage container, cushion your electronics with packing material. This can include towels, socks, bubble wrap, packing paper, and more, as long as it is something soft yet protective.
Use climate-controlled storage
Luckily for you, Zippy Shell offers secure climate-controlled storage! We have excellent storage centers that can safely store you items and seal out any dust and hot or cold air. Get a quote today!
