Croydon, February 2015 – PACK & SEND; the specialist packing and shipping company providing end-to-end collection, packing and delivery of virtually any item to almost anywhere in the world, is pleased to announce the opening of their latest store in Croydon, South London. This is one of several new units for the PACK & SEND franchise store network which is growing faster than ever to bring their unique packing and international shipping services to both personal and business customers across the UK.

PACK & SEND specialise in the professional and secure packing, and domestic and international shipping, of items that are fragile, large awkward or valuable. Their extensive range of domestic delivery services and international freight, cargo, shipping and courier options along with their expert packing knowledge mean they are able to live up to their claim of being able to pack and ship anything, anywhere in the world.

The opening of PACK & SEND Croydon strengthens their coverage in the South London area to undertake packing and shipping for individuals and businesses of all sizes in the Croydon area and other South East of England locations.

Consumer customers using PACK & SEND packing and shipping can include excess baggage services for tourists, individuals making a short-term or small-scale move or anyone trading on-line at sites such as ebay where buyers and sellers need to arrange shipping of a purchased item. Business customer needs can be shipping for short-term moves for employees or equipment, office relocations or the packing and safe delivery of critical, fragile or awkward items such as art and antiques, the shipment of samples or proto-types and the secure movement of valuable items such as data servers or laboratory equipment, architectural models or exhibition and display materials.

PACK & SEND Croydon is managed by Mark & Anita Sanderson whose previous experience, including Mark being a Director in a household name company and Anita working with Lloyds Underwriters in London, has been invaluable in helping to match PACK & SEND’s specialist shipping services to the needs of businesses and individuals alike.
