Cardboard boxes delivery

How are cardboard boxes delivered? The Basics

Cardboard boxes are a great eco-friendly moving, storage, and shipping solution. However, physical stores that sell them are few, so buying them online is the best option. When you purchase online, you save time and money and get higher-quality boxes.


Here is how cardboard boxes are delivered:

- You can order affordable moving boxes online and provide delivery and payment details. The sizes shown online are the internal box measurements in millimeters, so they are accurate and exact to ensure you buy the perfect box.

- You can purchase individual boxes or discounted packs of 5, 10, or 100 boxes, so the more you buy, the more you save.

- The delivery charge is low and is one for a total order, regardless of the number of boxes you need. The boxes are covered in polythene before dispatch, making them fully waterproof. This is important because it could rain during delivery, and the parcel must be watertight. This way, the delivery driver can accept your delivery request, such as leaving the parcel in a safe place if you are out.

- The cardboard boxes are flat-packed and require folding of the flaps at either end before use. This makes them take up less space and ensures they can avoid getting damaged during delivery.

- If you only need one or two boxes, we take extra care to protect them so that they arrive in good condition.

- When the orders are dispatched, we email you all the tracking information you need to know when your order will arrive. This ensures that you are available to accept your delivery and that there are no delays. If there are any problems or delays, you can contact the courier using your unique tracking number to amend any delivery details.

- The delivery driver will knock on your door or ring the doorbell, allowing you plenty of time to accept your delivery. If you are out, they will sometimes leave your parcel in a safe place if requested. Otherwise, they will leave you a note saying that they have attempted delivery and give you details of how to re-arrange delivery the following day. You can also collect your parcel from a nearby "access point," a local store open until late evening..

- If you need to cancel your order, you can contact our customer service department at any point.

- We recommend purchasing boxes well ahead of time, as flat-packed boxes for moving home only take up a little room, so you can store them until you need to use them. The cut-off point for next-day delivery is 3 pm each afternoon, so ensure you place your order before that time. If you place an order after that time, then the order will be dispatched on the following day.

- After placing your order, you will receive a confirmation email ensuring you have all the necessary details. If you are a business, we will email you a VAT invoice after the order is dispatched to your accounts.

- You can log in to our site anytime to check your previous order history and know what works for you. We can also quote you for bespoke cardboard moving boxes if you are still looking for something suitable.
