Business Overview:

Established mailbox store business, 50 plus years this location. This is a great investment business opportunity. Located on high traffic street, lots of anchors in the neighborhood that keep this area busy with people. Has over 400 mailboxes for rent with over 90% currently rented out. That’s money coming in with little or no overhead costs. This is not a franchise so no franchise fees or royalties to pay. Not a franchise also means you have the power to offer what services you want to offer and work with all shipping companies, UPS, Fed Ex, DHL etc.
This business offers regular work hours 9 to 6 type stuff so evenings off. Most small businesses do not offer, “Quality of Life” evenings and weekends off. This one does!! This is a very clean business, meaning it is a simple business to learn, it’s not physically labor intensive at all, there are no messy, greasy cleanups ever. No perishable inventory to order and maintain. Even labor costs are at a minimum, this is a perfect business for a couple or partners to own and operate.

The owner of this business has health concerns that severely limit the amount of time, energy and effort he can put into this business. Even with that said this business is still pretty profitable and can be so many much more profitable with an owner-operator in place on a regular basis. Other ways to increase the already solid profits, the first one is if owner-operator was in place on a day to day basis, profits would increase as labor costs would go down. Other positive rippling effects of having an owner in place on more of a regular basis would be customer service would go up. There would be more upselling at the front counter for additional services or insurance on packages etc. Then with the owner there keeping his hand on the controls of his business, he can gauge what good services to add or to take away.

Another way to increase the sales is to be more aggressive in the printing services offered. You do not even have to actually do the printing services, just offer them and have a print shop do them. You just offer the additional services to your customers. Your customers are happy with one-stop shopping convenience, the print shop is happy for the business and of course, you get a piece of the pie as well. You are just brokering business to the print shop. Everyone wins $$$!!! With this independent mailbox store type business, you can broker any number of goods and services, even truck rentals. This business lends itself really well to having your hand in many different types of money-making activities. Not just shipping and Mailbox Rentals, there is so much more give us a call to see for yourself.
