The Australian franchised Hire A Box Pty Ltd has gone into voluntary administration. Hire A Box has 15 active franchisees and a number of inactive franchisees within the system.

Matthew Fairthorne, senior manager at administrator Jones Partners, told Franchising he was confident of a positive outcome for franchisees. “We are very close to a sale,” he said.

Renting removal boxes to customers, Hire A Box was franchised in November 2007 after founder Barry Harris had run the business for seven years. Last year Harris took the concept to the US as Rent Your Boxes.
