Unlike all the other Pack ‘n Ship Franchise companies, with your Safe Ship® store, we’ve got your back. You are not dealing with salesmen. You are working with the people who work in our corporate stores every day. The highly experienced people you will rely on daily for your own success. People who know the industry and know the business. Not someone reading answers from a book. But someone who really knows what is going on and how to successfully run a pack and ship business.
Our Safe Ship® Franchise Concept is the newest and most successful Pack & Ship Store Franchise Business Opportunity available. WHY? Because we are different. The Safe Ship® Franchise Concept is designed to help you, our franchisees, make money. Not the franchise company.

As a Certified USPS Retail Center, we function as your local Post Office. We provide all Post Office® services. We sell stamps at the same price as the Post Office. Our competitors, like the UPS stores, sell a 50¢ stamp for 60¢. If they are ripping you off for a 50¢ stamp, how much more are they ripping you off on everything else they do?
This makes your Safe Ship® Store the natural replacement for the failing Post Office retail business. When you add to that, FedEx, DHL, Greyhound GPX, Estafeta deferred shipping to Mexico, Polenez deferred shiping to Europe, UMAC Consolidated shipping to the Philippines, various local and regional carriers, Domestic and International Freight shipping, water LCL or container shipping, and import/export capabilities, you find that you can ship anything, anywhere.

Everything from making Color Copies to Faxing to Notary Service to Renting Mailboxes to Electronic Fingerprints and so much more.
The first Safe Ship® Store opened over 30 years ago in Ormond Beach, Florida. Since then we have grown in experience and wisdom in running a very successful pack & ship business. We use our 30+ years of experience and the success as our 5 Safe Ship® model stores in our training for our franchisees. Our success has been impressive. Some stores become profitable within months of opening. This inexpensive, easy to run, and high potential income franchise concept is what the Safe Ship® Franchise Concept is all about. Less money going out of your pocket means more money stays with you.
We have grown from 1 very successful corporate store to a nation-wide chain of almost 50 successful franchise stores. Our success has brought about a great deal of interest from entrepreneurs wanting to start their own successful packing and shipping store.
We look forward to working with you.
