We have developed a SUPERIOR range of standard "mover friendly" cartons. Our emphasis is on QUALITY, ensuring that we give you, our valued customer, total peace of mind when you are packing your personal belongings. We also supply a comprehensive range of allied products such as bubble pack, packing paper and buff tape that go with a move. Alfred van Heerden and The Boxman have been supplying cartons to the Trade and Industry for the past 23 years, initially as manufacturers and then as distributors.

The Brand

Previously it was relatively easy for members of the public to procure second hand boxes from various outlets. However, due to the market becoming increasingly “recycle conscious”, these cartons now fetch a price of well over R 1 000 per ton. Therefore the larger retail outlets are now retaining these once redundant products and returning them at a value. This led us to a gap in the market to offer a one stop solution of supplying a comprehensive range of moving boxes and related packaging material direct to the public.

This is a niche market which many packaging companies cannot accommodate, due to the minimal quantities required by customers. Based on our model to supply a well known Boxman product range at conveniently located stores nationwide, we virtually have the monopoly of the market.


We currently have 65 Branches within the organisation, which is expanding rapidly and growing financially on a monthly basis. The Boxman would like to offer you the opportunity to become part of this lucrative business proposition:

• Reap the financial rewards by earning additional ‘passive’ income with no additional overhead expenses or staff requirements to concern yourself about.
• This exciting add-on service and business concept compliments most businesses, inclusive of the following:

* Letting and Property Agents
* Trailer Companies
* Furniture Removal Companies
* Self Storage Facilities
* Stationery Companies

The anticipated annual turnover at an average margin of 30% for the Franchisee is a minimum of R 150 000 to R 900 000+ per annum depending on the area’s demographics, accessibility, exposure and location of premises.


There is an initial one day training programme for product training and setup with on-going training and support provided.
