World Options - Testimonials
‘Having worked with the WO system in the past I am fully aware of the benefits and feel I can sell the service... The reward of working for myself is so much greater than when working for someone else, I would highly recommend it.'Mike Lowe, World Options Franchisee
I have been a World Options franchisee since 2014, so almost three years now. In that time I have turned this franchise opportunity into what I believe to be a really successful business with a potential for real growth. I have loved the journey and even after three years am still as keen as when I first started. It helps when you can see your hard work paying off. From a support perspective, the training I have received has been first class and the franchise development team and customer service team have always been really helpful. Overall my experience has been a great one or, to coin a popular Liverpool saying, “it’s been boss”.Matthew Mansfield, Liverpool
We have had our World Options franchise for just over two years now and, as someone who has always worked from home, the franchise fits in really well with our way of working. It gives us the flexibility that we need to enjoy the lifestyle that we are used to without having to commute and go to an office every day. We have built a successful franchise and are really pleased with where we are at now. Although we are quite independent and self-sufficient, whenever we have needed support the World Options customer service team have always been there to provide the answers and solutions. Although most people tend to sell the service face-to-face, we do everything over the phone. It suits how we work and we prefer to do it this way. I would definitely recommend the opportunity to those who are prepared to put the work in and sell.Izabella Drake, Bournemouth
As a franchisee based in Harrogate, I have been a franchisee now for over three years. In that time the work has taken me as far afield as America. My experience has been great and the opportunity for growth is there as long as you are prepared to put in the work. My advice to anyone would be that if you follow the process, stick to it and put the work in, you will build yourself a successful and rewarding business. You will always find customers who need the service that we provide. The support of the World Options team has been great and the portal gives you all the tools you need to succeed. I have also found it beneficial to work with the other franchisees – sharing ideas and feedback is great. In fact, I would highly recommend World Options to anyone looking for a good franchise opportunity.Brett Beresford, Harrogate
Having started my World Option franchise in 2014, I have found the experience to be both challenging and rewarding. The company is extremely IT-focused and determined to offer the best web solution for businesses worldwide. World Options has taken the archaic world of shipping and propelled it way into the future. Nowhere else can you get quotes in three seconds and ship internationally in two clicks! With the recent introduction of Auto Dimensioning and weighing tools, World Options are a force to be reckoned with. The support from the customer service team is proactive, kind and extremely forgiving and there is constant training offered to keep everyone abreast of the ongoing development. The support from other franchisees is amazing, too. World Options have their own company social network that allows your voice to be heard, whether good or bad. I have found it easy to get help, feedback and suggestions — simply post a question and normally there is a solution within the hour. When I first started, I had big dreams of where I wanted to be, but my dreams were not founded upon reality. A business takes effort, determination and persistence to grow, the benefit to a World Options franchise is, the rewards are great! No weekend work, no seasonal or bank holiday work, 9-5, it truly is a family-friendly business. We recently spent two weeks in Spain and the business didn’t suffer without me. The Portal allows shipping customers to be independent, and if they do have a question, they will simply email you. If you don’t have the answer you ask the World Options customer service. I see this business paying me a wage in my old age and providing an amazing source of income for my children, too. World Options has allowed me to pay off my mortgage, extend my home and enjoy some boy’s toys, too, and it feels like I’m just getting started! I would definitely recommend the opportunity. It’s not pink bunnies and fairies, but the rewards are worth being consistent and persistent. The tools World Options offer are some of the best in the UK dare I say it the world! Because of this it is dead easy to get people interested in the free service, the only tricky part is some red tape for the bigger companies and matching diaries for the busy SME business owners.Lance Grew
Having been a franchisee for 12 months now, I am absolutely delighted that I decided to take on a World Options franchise. With a franchising background, World Options allowed me to simplify what I was already doing with their impressive portal. Having previously had to log in with different carriers to get what I needed, now the portal saves me time and allows me to achieve better and faster business growth. In fact, I would go so far as to say the portal is an absolute dream. For me, the franchise is a family concern and something that can provide financial security for the futures of both my son and son-in-law, who are both working in the business. My dream was to have a family business that would provide a residual income that we could build on with a real opportunity for growth. Add to the opportunity for growth the fantastic training and support that is offered by the customer service team and franchise development team and for those who are prepared to put the work in it is an ideal opportunity.Leland Mayall, Oldham
We have been World Option franchise holders for the past two and a half years now. In this time we have built and continue to build a successful franchise. We are still working at achieving our five year plan, so we consider it to be early days. We are actually recruiting now to build the team so that we can increase our activity. That’s one of the great things about a World Options franchise – it is a business that you can build on. As a World Options franchisee, having less overheads means we can achieve a greater profit margin and enjoy a residual income after about 12 months. The first 12 months are critical and you must make sure you put the work in to reap the benefits. We were lucky in that we had a background in the same industry so we had experience and knowledge of the competition and what they were offering. World Options are definitely unique in the industry with great tools, like the portal, which have helped enormously. In terms of support from the head office, we find we get what we need. To be honest, we tend to just keep our heads down and get on with it, so don’t have a lot of call for support, but we always get what we need. We would definitely recommend a World Options franchise to anyone looking for an opportunity but make sure you are prepared to put the work in.Lucky and Sil Chana
We have had our franchise now for three years, having been one of the first World Options franchisees. Obviously, when it was a brand new concern, there were the initial teething problems and the first 12 months was hard work. Now after having had our franchise for three years, we have built up a good customer base and we pride ourselves on our customer retention. It is important to look after your customers and answer their queries in a timely and satisfactory manner. In terms of the support we get from World Options, we find the customer service team and account department are brilliant. They are always on hand for support. The portal has improved with a new one having just been released. For us, we still see a huge potential for growth and we have expanded our business with the addition of resource to help us. The model is great and customers don’t realise that this solution is available to them, so the more people that we can meet the requirements of, the greater our potential for growth. We would recommend the World Options opportunity to the right person. You have to have a certain profile to be able to put in the work required to make this a success, but if you are prepared to put the work in the results are there to be achieved.Russ Thornton & Steve Brock
