A robust opportunity

Our success has been built on a commitment to provide to our customers convenient, personalised and value-added solutions when they need to send anything, anywhere.
Pack & Send New Zealand started operating during the global financial crisis; manoeuvred its way through the Christchurch earthquakes unscathed; and has been smashing Covid for six! Throughout these three monumental business disruptions, Pack & Send has demonstrated its strength, agility and resilience. It offers franchisees the full package when it comes to training, support and business success, regardless of the economic climate.
In 2020, Pack & Send has been experiencing ongoing record growth:
- Sales up another 10% over the last quarter
- Customer numbers up 33%
- Online sales rocketing up 100% against this time last year.

Located primarily on city fringes with street frontage for optimum exposure, stores average a manageable 100 square metres.
