Zippy Shell North Chicago is a portable storage unit vendor which delivers storage pods to commercial and residential customers to be filled before storing the storage unit in a climate-controlled warehouse. Located in Chicago, IL, this company serves northern Chicago, including Andersonville, Gold Coast, Lincoln Park, Old Irving, Rogers Park, Wicker Park, Bucktown, Greektown, Lincoln Square, Ravenswood, Roscoe Village, West Loop, DePaul, Irving Park, Logan Square, River North, Uptown, Wrigleyville, Edgewater, Lakeview, The Loop, River West, and West Town. The company has been in business since 2013 and is the only portable storage unit with street-legal moving pods.

This company provides moving pods, or Zippy Shells, for residential and commercial moves. These street-legal pods can be parked on the street, backed into loading docks, or towed into alleys so that the customer or their moving team can fill the pod with their items. When the pod is packed with their belongings, the customer notifies Zippy Shell, and the company transports the pod to their climate-controlled warehouse within the city until the customer is ready to have the pod removed from storage and brought back to their residence or office to be unloaded as needed. The company also provides services which can help customers find moving companies or hire assistance with loading and unloading their pod at hourly or flat rates.
