The current owner is selling the business in order to retire
We are delighted to be able to offer for sale this established and profitable Mail Boxes Etc in Bedfordshire.
As a result of the lockdown, this business reduced opening hours but was fortunate enough not close its doors completely. The sale price for this business has been significantly reduced for a quick sale and is on the market for less than the valued price of £116,000.
Established in 2010, this successful business has generated strong relationships with local businesses, the franchise has an established customer base and benefits from repeat business. The majority of services have remained constant through the lockdown, with only shipping affected. But as a result of the regular custom, the business has been largely unaffected.
The services offered are varied, they include but are not limited to: mail receiving services, packing & shipping, postage, printing and mapping. As a result of the reputation and quality of services, MBE Bedfordshire acts as an agent for many major couriers. The potential customer base is expansive and there is ample opportunity to significantly increase the workload and ultimately profits.
Commercial and communication skills are required in order to continue to grow the business. You will be required to not only maintain the already established relationships but also to create new ones. Mail Boxes etc provides a one-stop-shop, offering a mix of expert commercial services, which means good communication skills are a must.
The current owner is selling in order to retire: as a result of the success of this business, the franchisee is able to retire early. This leaves you with the opportunity to build on the strong foundations and become a successful business owner.
