Business Overview:

Over 20 years established shipping and mailbox business. Super great high-traffic downtown Seattle location. Tons of people and businesses to cater to. Literally too many to count. This business is profitable and is not labor-intensive at all, has regular 9-5 type operating hours so NO late evenings to work.

The services offered here are physically quite easy on your body and cost only pennies to offer but bring in dollars of profit. Only one or two employees are needed so your labor costs are also low. All kinds of services are offered from mailbox rental to shipping packages and notary services.

This is not a franchise so there is no big brother (franchise) telling you what you can and cannot do. Also, NO franchise affiliation means NO franchise fees or royalties to pay, NO restrictions on the services you can offer, NO franchise means you can work with all shipping carriers UPS, DHL, Fed Ex, and USPS.

NO franchise also means you can GO Green and save big dollars by reusing shipping and packing materials. If they are still in good condition, then why not? That’s a huge savings $$$ on the cost of goods for you. And hey you are doing your part in saving the world.

Franchises make you pay to buy all your shipping supplies (boxes and packing material) from them at a significant HIGHER COST than this whole Go Green and FREE supplies. Another real positive attribute of NO franchise is you can offer any retail sales you want. Currently, even a small café with tables and an espresso machine are in place.

Has 340 total physical mailboxes that have 24/7 access for your clients, so on their way to work or on their way home their mailbox is waiting and available for them to have access to it.

You could even offer virtual mailboxes and have an unlimited number of mailboxes to rent and service. And with this super location (in the middle of so many offices and people) this could be another strong $$$ potential. Five stars for this service.

This kind of business lends itself so well to having your hand in many different money-making services. From offering printing services (you don’t actually do the printing; you have a working relationship with a print shop and all you do is generate the work order paperwork. The print shop is happy for work, your customer is happy for the convenience of one-stop shopping and of course, you get a percentage of $$$ for just generating the work order. You are a print broker, business cards, flyers you name it and someone else prints it)

Many other home, office, or business services can be offered the same way. Big bucks, win, win... This is also a distinct advantage of nonfranchise mailbox stores over franchises. The freedom to think, act and make money outside the storefront.

It’s kind of a no-brainer as this location is that strong. The customer base is here for you. Give us a call to set up a time to see this business.

All have 24/7 customer access. The website is included in the sale. Close to the Seattle Space Needle. Has reserved parking space for the owner ($140.) per month. There is street parking but has a very big walk-in market to cater to. Signage and visibility are good. Inside setup also has a lite café with an espresso machine and a few tables. Currently offers espressos, healthy smoothies, pastries, and sandwiches. Even has 3rd party delivery option offered.

Market Competition and Expansion:

This is downtown Seattle so there are tons of people and businesses that could be marketed and advertised to that are currently not being reached out to. The virtual mailbox's profit potential is very strong and with this location, there are probably many much more notary dollars to be made too. Not much competition in the immediate area. The seller is willing to give in-depth training to the new owner. Seller says his net take-home pay is fifty to sixty thousand dollars annually.

Reason for Selling:

The owner wants to retire.

Additional Details:

  • The property is leased.

  • This is not a franchise resale opportunity.
