Fastway Couriers Success Stories
Fastway Couriers Testimonials
Hi I’m Jonathan, I’m a courier franchisee with Fastway Couriers for the last nine years in Galway city, previous to this I was working in Fire and Security in Galway airport. I chose to join Fastway, having been made redundant during the recession in the airport. The main benefit of being your own boss, and as your territory grows, you get to pick your own team. I’m very lucky I have a great team behind me in Galway. And also good to have the support of the main office behind us and we know that we have leadership there. I feel if you provide a good service, word of mouth, is probably the best advertising you can have and I brought on a lot of local businesses, who in turn have spoken to other business owners and were lucky were constantly growing our business in Galway city
Hi my name is Emma, and I have been a Courier Franchisee for the a year now. Before I joined Fastway Couriers, I was a Medical Secretary for a good number of years. There are lots of benefits of being a Courier Franchisee, one of them is the low start up costs and the support that you get from the leadership team. In terms of technology, we use an app on our scanners, so we rely heavily on that for all the information and contact details, obviously for addresses but also if a customer is not at home, you may need to call them so you need all that information
“As a husband and wife team, we support each other in our different roles. As business people, we’re proud to deliver and pickup parcels for so many local businesses, in and around the Fermanagh and Tyrone areas. The Enniskillen depot was set up in 2006, and since then we have seen continuous growth through hard work, and the dedication of the wider team. We both left the construction industry in the downturn to run our own business, with the view of returning at some point. 16 years later, we’re still passionate about our customers, and running a successful business”
