PostNet Customer Review: Business Services Help Propane Trucking Business Grow

“It’s my office staff without having an office staff,” trucking company owner says of PostNet printing franchise.

When Mike Svoboda first started his business, Alliance Trucking and Tank Sales, he took care of his graphic design and marketing materials. “But it looked terrible,” he said. It was also time-consuming, taking him away from other vital aspects of running his business.

Alliance Trucking and Tank Sales has worked with PostNet for 10 years.

Alliance Trucking and Tank Sales has worked with PostNet for 10 years.

Svoboda and a business partner opened their business in Missoula, Mont., about 10 years ago. The company buys and sells propane tanks and trucks. When a PostNet printing and marketing franchise opened in Missoula, Svoboda turned to franchisee John Yovetich for help.

PostNet designs and sends out mailers and postcards, and created and maintains Alliance’s Web site. That’s not all.

“They actually do all of my artistic designs as far as advertising. It looks very professional,” Svoboda said.

Now, Svoboda spends his days doing what makes his business profitable, selling. PostNet takes care of nearly everything else.

“For a small business, it just really helps someone to have people do all these things without the cost of an office staff,” Svoboda said. “I go to one place. I have a one-stop shop.”

PostNet is go-to resource for business community

Svoboda is emblematic of the type of customer that PostNet is ideally suited to serve: small- to medium-sized businesses that have great skills, products and services to offer, but that need help with graphic design, printing and internet marketing. There are about 27 million businesses in the United States with less than 100 employees, with owners working long hours to grow and prosper. PostNet makes it easier for them by offering a “one-stop shop” where customers can have materials printed; create, send and track the effectiveness of direct mail campaigns; create and optimize websites; design logos and create business cards — as well as provide a secure mailbox that can also serve as a professional business address.
