Looking for Summer Storage Options?

Parents: are you wondering what to do about everything in your student's Residence Hall room over the summer vacation? Let Zippy Shell help you save dollars and make things easy for you! 

The Office of Student Life at Ohio State and Zippy Shell Greater Columbus are partnering, for the 2nd consecutive year, to present ZippyU storage options. Regardless of whether you live on campus or off, Zippy Shell's got your back, by offering one special price for all summer storage. ZippyU offers more free on-campus pickups/redeliveries than competitors, including weekend pickups/redeliveries and are all-round cheaper with no registration fees!!! Help us help you, by reserving before April 18, when boxes will be delivered to students, or leverage our alternate box drop-off scheduled for April 22. Orders received after April 22 will need to have box kits collected at any of the designated pickup locations and times, detailed in the Summer storage pickup schedule that starts April 24 – be sure to bring copy of your sales order.  

  • Option 1 - ZippyU Storage-by-the-Box - ideal for students in on-campus Residence Halls: We deliver box kits (3/6/9 boxes, tape and marker) to student; Students fill boxes at their convenience, attaching a unique pre-printed identification label to each storage item; Student uses OSU’s big move-in bins to easily cart items to centralized collection location outside Residence Halls; We store items in locally owned, secure, climate controlled environment for the Summer; For students returning to Residence Halls, we redeliver items directly to rooms, so when you return in the Fall, your stuff is already securely locked in your room; For students moving off-campus, we redeliver to your apartment/house on your designated move-in date for a small special delivery fee. All inclusive, one-time payment includes almost 4 months storage, box kit supply drop, storage pickup, storage redelivery and $100 content protection per item. Besides saving parents and student’s time, money and hassle, summer storage could not get easier! 
  • Option 2 - Zippy Shell Container Storage - ideal for groups of students in off-campus apartments/houses that need to store furniture: Students secure Shell container reservation and delivery date/time early to ensure availability; We deliver the street-legal Zippy Shell storage units to Students’ apartment/house; Students receive loading tips and easily complete container loading within a 2 hour window, or we can arrange for loading help; Zippy Shell container returns to our locally owned, secure, climate controlled environment for the Summer; Students secure Shell container redelivery date/time early, to ensure availability on move-in date; We redeliver Zippy Shell container to students new apartment/house after the summer break; Students easily complete unloading within a 2 hour window, or we can arrange for unloading help. Due to limited container availability, Zippy Shell requires a minimum 2-month rental. Don’t be disappointed and get stuck without an affordable solution. First-come first-served, so reserve early!
