Suppose you have an antique gramophone to send to a buyer in America, or you want to get a large painting to a house in France. How would you pack the vase and how safe is it going to be in the hold of a plane? Perhaps you could fit the painting in your car and drive it there yourself, but how much would that cost and have you got the spare time to do it?
PACK & SEND can resolve these issues at a fraction of the cost, and with the care and attention you would give the goods if you were transporting them yourself. It is problems like these - and hundreds more - that PACK & SEND stores solve every day. We pack and send anything to anywhere, and offer a comprehensive loss and damage policy to protect customers’ property from door to door as well.
What's more, we are so confident in our service that we even offer complete loss or damage cover for anything we have packed - whatever its value - a real USP! And we can help to ensure a smooth international delivery with advice on customs forms and import/export documentation.

Are you right for PACK & SEND?
PACK & SEND is a people focused business, and so recruitment of the right franchisees is critical to our success. We want bright people who are able to get the business basics right and undertake strong local marketing initiatives. Almost more importantly, however, we need people with charisma who can empathise, reassure and sell to customers, as well as have the enthusiasm and confidence to engage with the local business community to secure commercial work in their territory.
Running a PACK & SEND business requires focus and attention to detail, as customers trust us with the care of their valuable possessions. It is unlikely that the start-up investment will be less than £100,000, or exceed £130,000. This figure covers all licensing costs, fit out of commercial premises, equipment installation and working capital.
Whilst preferential lending terms are available from our banking partners (subject to status), including RBS NatWest and Lloyds, successful candidates will need to have at least 50% of this in readily available funds.’
