Fastway Testimonials
I’m Josh, I live locally here in Portarlington and I’m 31 years old so I decided it was time to do my own thing. What attracted me to become a courier franchisee is the low start-up costs, the chance of high revenue, and the fact I got to work locally in my own area was a huge plus for me. I also get regular support from management, we have a great relationship, we speak on a daily basis and definitely the best way to go.
Josh, Courier Franchisee, Portarlington
As businesspeople, we’re proud to deliver and pick up 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.

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
Emma - Courier Franchisee
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
