PACKING / SHIPPING / BUSINESS SERVICES
Pack and ship companies currently account for over 7,550 independently owned and operated businesses in the United States. Over Sunbelt Business Broker's 40+ year history, our certified business brokers have been responsible for transitioning numerous pack and ship stores of various sizes in many different markets.
Why has Sunbelt had these results with Pack & Ship stores?
While much of our success can be attributed to the highly experienced and knowledgeable business intermediaries stationed in offices throughout the United States, Sunbelt Franchise Resales (SFR) has partnered with Annex Brands and their nest of reputable franchised pack and ship brands. As the "preferred resales broker" for Annex Brands over the last 15+ years, Sunbelt has become well versed in the exiting process and the type of buyer their brands and other independent pack and ship businesses attract. Our offices are very familiar with the business model to assist pack and ship business owners looking to exit and have played an integral role in helping many owners achieve their succession goals.
As of the conclusion of Third Quarter 2022, the marketplace remains an advantageous place for business owners to transition their business. Since 2020, the buyer pool for businesses has increased dramatically due to historically low interest rates, high unemployment and low job satisfaction. However, there have been some early indicators signaling a shift in the marketplace. With rapid rates of inflation and interest rates spiking beyond even pre-pandemic levels, the buyer pool is projected to level off as many of the incentives to purchase an existing business disappear. Seller Financing has emerged as an alternative to traditional bank financing and remains an attractive selling point for buyers.
If you are an owner contemplating the sale of your business, it's never been more critical and beneficial to consult with someone who understands the marketplace, the selling process and how to appropriately value and market your business in order to maximize value.
