Pack & Send Unpacks in Birmingham
Friday, 24 September 2010
Personal and business customers requiring excess baggage shipping, specialist packing and transportation and courier services in Sheldon, Solihull and the wider Birmingham area can now call upon PACK & SEND’s unique range of services for all their packing and shipping requirements from Sheldon and Birmingham to the UK and over 220 countries worldwide as well.
PACK & SEND’s first Birmingham store is in Sheldon and easily accessed from the City centre and the M42 and National Exhibition Centre and local interest in the vast range of secure packing and shipping and freight solutions is already proving strong. PACK & SEND are delighted to be in the UK’s second city and the Coventry Road location is ideal for customers in central Birmingham as well as those in locations such as Solihull, Acocks Green, Shirley and Henley-in-Arden as well as Hall Green, Earlswood, Dorridge and Lapworth.
PACK & SEND Sheldon Birmingham is owned and operated by Mr Haq Khan – a local JP and businessman who is well-known to the Sheldon and Solihull communities - under the PACK & SEND franchise programme. Haq, working with his son, Anwar, took the decision to open a PACK & SEND earlier in the year and have spent time training with the business as well as locating a convenient site and then preparing for launch.
Any new business is always good news for the community and Haq and Anwar hosted an open lunch at the store to mark the formal launch and were joined by other local business owners, business advisors and Lorely Burt – MP for Solihull - and Yardley MP, John Hemming as well as Mike Ryan; CEO of PACK & SEND UK.
PACK & SEND make a simple promise – ‘We send anything, anywhere!’ - and all their stores provide a unique combination of highly secure packing and shipping solutions with overnight UK deliveries and next day to most European and US destinations. Every store has the option of over 30 freight shipping options via air, road and sea including door-to-door delivery across the globe. Business and personal customers will find the helpful and professional service that PACK & SEND provide a breath of fresh air in a traditionally complicated market. They can handle virtually anything, but are specialists in shipping large, fragile, awkward or valuable items where high quality packing is essential.
Typical shipments managed by UK stores in the last 12 months have been:
- £1 million specialist lab equipment moved from Oxford to the United States
- 4 metre circumference Meccano model ferris wheel model sent to Australia
- Specialist server and switch units to data centres in the UK and elsewhere
-Around £1/2 million of original artwork to various locations

For customers wanting to call into the Sheldon store, not only does it carry the distinctive PACK & SEND signage, but there is plenty of easy parking for delivery and collection of packages at the front and rear. Of course, as with all PACK & SEND stores in the UK and across the world, there is no need to come to the shop at all! PACK & SEND can collect your goods and parcels from any location and secure packing can be undertaken either on-site or at the local store. The Sheldon store has already worked on shipments from Sutton Coldfield, Castle Bromwich and Coleshill, and is able to collect from locations across the county when required.
