Zippy Shell USA ("ZSA" or the "Company") represents a disruptive business and operating model within the mobile self storage and moving industries, providing an innovative, efficient, high-quality, proprietary mobile storage and moving platforms that offer significant economic and operating advantages over competing technologies such as those of industry pioneers PODS® and 1-800-PACK RAT®
The Zippy Shell System fully addresses the requirements of changing consumer preferences within the moving and storage industry and has the potential to be a game-changing offering. The System, compared to other systems: (i) has lower upfront and maintenance capital requirements and variable operating costs; (ii) offers a potentially dramatically higher return on capital invested in franchises; (iii) provides a superior or competitive product and service offering; (iv) allows franchisees to compete on price or achieve profitability at lower customer volumes while maintaining superior profit margins; and (v) can improve the revenue potential of a territory given that it is easier to deliver to consumers in challenging, heavy vehicle restricted locations.
Additional benefits of the System for franchisees include: (i) an additional revenue stream through the sale of additional products and services, (ii) the ability to make faster drop-offs and being able to serve market areas that are off limits to competitors due to restrictions prohibiting the placing of unregistered containers on the street, (iii) the ability to employ drivers that are not required to have a class "C" license and lower-cost driver labor, thereby eliminating the need for specialized training of employees and reducing the cost of turnover; and (iv) reduced risk of accidents due to the simplicity and standardization of equipment being employed.
