There would no premises to rent or purchase, so therefor no large deposit to find or utility bills to pay. Pickpackpost would be a virtual office for you, but as far as your customer is concerned they will believe they are dealing with you direct.
You wouldn’t have staff to employ and all the costs that come with that, such as holiday pay, N.I. Pensions. Also the fear that comes when an important member of staff goes sick or takes a holiday! and you have to employ agency staff.
As an established fulfilment company we are able to negotiate better deals on packaging etc. Because of the bulk purchases we are able to make, our costs are so much lower than yours and we pass these savings onto you.
We also have accounts with Royal Mail and several courier companies, both UK and International to ensure that we have a suitable and cost effective choice for your order fulfilment.
Our storage charges are far lower than it would cost you to rent a unit. When you take into consideration the heating and insurance needed to cover your stock the costs rise very quickly. Whereas using our fulfilment service all the extra costs are included in the storage price.
Our customers pay month-to month for the amount of warehouse space they occupy, therefor saving money on renting a complete unit.
We take care of receiving, managing, processing and shipping your stock. Our experience means that we are able to fulfil your orders accurately and quickly so ensuring your company is giving the best customer service it possibly can.
The biggest saving for you would be your time, no price can be put on the extra time you will have to grow your ebay business rather than fulfilling orders and dealing with customer service.
