PACK & SEND; the unique packing and shipping solutions business which
launched in the UK at the start of last year, have officially opened
their first store in Birmingham.

Birmingham, England, October 07, 2010 -- PACK & SEND; the unique packing
and shipping solutions business which launched in the UK at the start of
last year, have officially opened their first store in Birmingham.
Located on Coventry Road in Sheldon, the new store is ideally located
close to the Birmingham NEC and the International Airport and provides an
unmatched range of packing and shipping options to and from worldwide
destinations.

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
Rare Norton motorbike sent to a collector in the US
Grandfather clocks shipped to buyers in the UK and abroad
Sports car hardtops to the USA
Excess baggage for tourists and travellers to countries across the globe

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.
Just call or e.mail your details and Haq and the team will be delighted
to help.

Note to Editors

Pack & Send is a company that offers a complete range of postal, freight,
courier, packing and removal services operating through a national retail
network. We were founded in 1993, establishing the first Pack & Send
Store in Parramatta, NSW, Australia.

Pack & Send has expanded over 18 years from the one store and is rapidly
becoming a global brand. We are continuing to grow our retail network
through franchising. Every moment, of every day there is something that
was packed and sent by a Pack & Send store being moved somewhere on the
planet.

Open 5 days a week, we manage packaging, freight and message sending
services for businesses of all sizes, as well as for householders and
tourists. Our freight solutions range from sending a 20gm letter to a 1
tonne consignment. We are the industry leader with respect to handling
goods that are fragile, large, awkward, and valuable.

We offer over 30 different freight services, enabling us to deliver to
any destination on the planet. We sell packaging supplies and can custom
pack items of any size or weight.

Through our retail network, we differentiate ourselves from the
traditional methods of servicing customer needs in the freight ma rket by
offering powerful freight solutions through a combination of experience,
first class operating systems, strategic partners and the entrepreneurial
spirit of our franchisees.

Every day Pack & Send is asked to deliver the ‘weird and wonderful’, some
of which have included:
A Salt encrusted rams head, delivered to a salt industry conference.
Enormous Olympic Games Sets, Costumes and Props – some at over 8 meters
high.
60 Mars Ice Cream bars half way around the world.
A Jet Boat engine from Dorset to Sydney.

The largest consignment that Pack & Send has managed so far was eight 40
foot sea-containers of computer equipment that had to be professionally
packed and sent to the USA.
