PACK & SEND – management franchise in the packaging and shipping sector

PACK & SEND is unique in that it can pack and deliver ANY item to ANY location. Our internationally renowned franchise, launched in Australia over 25 years ago, is available to entrepreneurs looking to get more out of working life. In the rapidly growing £70bn logistics industry, which generates around 5% of GDP, we’re extremely proud to call ourselves the leading packaging and shipping specialist franchise in the UK.

What our franchisees do

Our franchisees usually start as owner-operators of their franchise, building a team to manage the needs of their customers. You satisfy the needs of businesses and private clients by providing the very best solution when they’re sending items. Here’s just a few things your business will cover:

  • Professional packing services - from simple bubble wrap to bespoke injected-foam packing
  • Wide range of delivery options - road, air and sea freight
  • Comprehensive loss/damage cover - with no upper limit on financial cover
  • Flexible and bespoke solutions - ship almost anything to anywhere
  • Customs/import document assistance - an end-to-end solution

And here’s the best part: you don’t need to have any freight or logistics experience as we teach you all about that in our specialised training programme. You’ve just got to be a team player who is sales-focused with a no-limits attitude. There are no limits on our customer service, on your business potential or how much we’ll support you to reach your goals.

How we support you

The initial part of your PACK & SEND journey will involve an eight-week training programme supporting you through your first year of business. The franchise package consists of 21 key components to make your business a success, including an exclusive trading territory, your store fit-out and equipment, marketing resources, financial management and freight warranty policies.

When you’re ready to launch, an expert will join you and your team in your service centre for the first month. They won’t run the business for you but they’ll be on hand so you can get up to speed on maximising sales and customer satisfaction.

We’re also proud to offer two guarantees to our franchisees:

  • Year 1 brand lead guarantee – we guarantee a defined number of leads with the opportunity to secure long-term repeat customers
  • Year 1 marketing support guarantee – whatever you spend on marketing, we will match it (up to a maximum of £6,000).

Pack and Send franchisee daniel savi“The first few weeks of training in the PACK & SEND store in Reading gave us a feel for what it was like to interact with customers and what our days would be like in the business. I have to say, this was the most useful for both me and my business partner, Koudy, as when we opened our own service centre, we already had some experience of how to operate the franchise.”
Daniel Savi, PACK & SEND Elephant & Castle

A smooth delivery business

We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of technology to ensure our franchisees and your customers have the best experience. As a PACK & SEND franchisee, you have access to:

  • Exclusive PACK & SEND point-of-sale system - GMx. It helps with calculating packaging and freight costs, comparing competitor prices and saving, storing and retrieving customer information. On average, it saves our franchisees two days a month compared to traditional systems requiring multiple points of data input.
  • Our intranet site - Packnet - with resources including your operations manual, price lists, supplier information, benchmarking reports etc.  
  • Our quality supplier relationships with major logistics brands.

The franchise investment

Our initial franchise fee is £29,500 but you will need to budget for your service centre fit-out and working capital. The total budget required to open a PACK & SEND store is in the region of £100,000 – £120,000.

On that basis, we advise new franchisees will need around £50,000 - £60,000 liquid capital. Up to 70% funding support is available through high-street banks subject to personal circumstances.

Our ongoing Franchise Management and Advertising Fees cover everything you need to get your business off the ground and keep it growing.

  • Marketing material such as flyers, brochures, banners and posters
  • Sales kits and management resources
  • PR resource
  • Digital and social media account management
  • National advertising campaigns, sponsorships and promotions.

Pack and Send franchisee gairn“Being a PACK & SEND franchisee means I spend a lot more time at home with the family. I’ve also been able to set up the business just two miles from my house, so it really is convenient for having that balance between family life and work. I’m still very happy that I made the decision to start the business. I still enjoy each day, so it was definitely the right decision for me.”

After spending 13 years in Singapore working at major corporate brands, Julian Starr ventured back to the UK searching for a new lease of life. He had proved integral to American Express Asia, firstly as Chief Financial Officer for the bank and then the Controller for the whole company, before moving on to PayPal Asia where he was influential in the early stages of the business. With a decade’s worth of experience behind him, Julian was ready for the next chapter.
