With the storage unit on your property, you can keep a close eye on the items, ensuring their safety and security. This is particularly beneficial when dealing with valuable or sentimental items. Furthermore, having onsite storage can also facilitate coordination with estate sale professionals, appraisers, or auction houses. They can directly access the unit on your property, making the valuation and sale process more efficient. Lastly, our onsite containers can also help reduce the emotional stress associated with an estate sale.

Efficient organization and decluttering

One of the key benefits of using Zippy Shell DMV’s storage services during an estate sale is the ability to organize items efficiently and declutter. Estate sales often involve dealing with a large volume of items, and sorting through these can be daunting. Our portable and onsite storage solutions provide an easy way to sort, manage, and store items from the estate, leading to a more efficient and orderly sale process.

Storing items off-site creates a clutter-free environment within the estate, which is ideal for showcasing items for sale. This enhances the visual appeal of your sale and allows potential buyers to explore and navigate with ease. A less cluttered estate simplifies the process for buyers to envision the potential of each space and make informed purchasing decisions. Furthermore, a well-organized sale can create a positive impression on buyers, potentially leading to higher sales. Items can be categorized based on their type, value, or the room they belong to and stored in separate storage units or sections within a unit. This approach simplifies the process of keeping track of the items and reduces the chances of items getting misplaced or damaged. Our storage options serve as a valuable tool for efficient organization and decluttering during an estate sale, making the process smoother, more manageable, and ultimately more successful.

During a home renovation, I needed to get a pod onsite within 24 hours. After calling several places, zippy shell was the only company able to accommodate me. The customer service is fantastic. The office is responsive and helpful. The guys who delivered the pod and then delivered and picked up a second pod were so nice, very professional. Highly recommend!
