run our mail centre north
in just 3 hours a day, from home
with no expensive high-street premises, stock or staffing costs
Over the last two years we have established a network of six, highly successful, regional Mail Centres across the UK, serving thousands of customers with virtual addresses, mail forwarding and scanning. Our current Licences cover the Midlands, South West, and the Home Counties of England; plus regional Centres for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland ( with London and Dublin due to be added to the network early in 2020 ).
. . .we are now inviting enquiries for our remaining prime territory, manchester
expost north can be managed easily by a single owner operator, or couple, working a maximum of 15 hours per week in year one, with dedicated workspace of around 220 square feet, about the same as a double bedroom or garage.
( follow the licence overview link above to find out how much space and time you would need to dedicate )
low cost & positive cashflow
with a 100% return on your investment in the first year
The set-up cost for this prime regional Mail Centre 'territory' is determined by its geographical location, its demand as an address and the size of its exclusive footprint ( the entire North West of England including; Greater Manchester, Merseyside and Lancashire ). With a total set-up cost of £13,900 plus VAT, expost north has a projected ROI of less than thirteen months.
from our licensees
Our six active Mail Centres have been trading for two years. . . and we promised each Licensee, at the outset, that we wouldn't launch our two 'flagship' locations, ( here in Manchester, and in London ), until they were each achieving their own projected revenue figures. That point was reached, and exceeded, in July of 2019.
You don't have to take our word for the profitability and potential of this opportunity. Once we are sure that your enquiry is serious and genuine, we'll give you the contact details for each of our existing Licensees, who will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have, from their own perspective. This is what they have to say about expost:
Greg, the Midlands:
I'd been running our very successful family business in Telford since my father retired to Spain and became a customer of expatpost, as a direct result of which he came across the Licence opportunity. After travelling down to Pembrokeshire to see the original Mail Centre in operation, we made the decision immediately, and have not looked back at all.
Support, both for us and our customers, has been superb, sales just keep rollng in and accumulating. It's almost two years now and we are way ahead of even our most optimistic expectations! If the trip to West Wales for an experience day is daunting, we'd me more than happy for you to visit us here in Telford and see the business working first-hand. :o)
Chris & Tina, South East:
We were only the second regional Mail Centre to open and we were naturally sceptical about the earning and profit projections, but we really needn't have worried. The income has exceeded those original projections by a long way, the system is constantly improving, and we've been the best performing Mail Centre for three of the last four months!
I'd be delighted to chat to you informally, and very openly, if you decide to take your interest to the next stage. We did, and we certainly don't regret the decision. Tina in St Neots.
Sheila & Jack, South West:
Jack and I had been customers of expost for a couple of years whilst travelling and living in our motorhome, and knew the benefits first hand, so we didn't need any convincing about the value of the service. But we were also well aware that it was a gamble, and of course we were nervous, especially as we had to buy a house in Taunton specifically to open the Mail Centre!
It was the best decision we ever made. We recovered our investment in fifteen months, I gave up my job in June to work on expost full time, and the business has continued to grow from strength to strength. We're on target to double our income again this year, then maybe Jack will retire!
Keith, South Wales:
I was lucky enough to find out about Expost by accident. My son has a courier business and had been delivering to expost's Head Office for some time when, one day, it was mentioned that they planned to franchise. My son knew I was looking for something to run alongside my existing business and so gave me their details.
After spending time with expost in Pembrokeshire and much careful consideration, I became the first Licensee, back in September of 2017. Despite being the 'guinea pig' for all future Mail Centres, I got my investment back in the first year and business just continues to grow. I can't speak highly enough of the support myself and my clients get from the staff at expost!
First of all, I'm not a Licencee. I joined the company as a contractor six years ago and have managed the original Mail Centre as an independent, stand alone, business ever since.
Although we stopped selling new accounts when the first Licence was launched, in Swansea, we maintain some of our existing customers because the lessons they teach us are invaluable to our continued development, and the business growth across the whole network. We'll get to meet if you decide to visit Philbeach for an experience day, and I can show you around ( and show off ) my mailroom. I'll also be your primary trainer!
