General Ordering Enquiries

Why do you need the dimensions of my product?

As we have hundreds of possibilities to choose from and we like to make sure that we can recommend the best packaging match for your product. Our customer service team would love to help you find the ideal packaging for your product, simply fill out our online form, email us at help@buypackagingboxes.co.uk or give us a call on +44 161 850 8732.

Are the dimensions listed internal or external dimensions of the product?

We list the internal dimensions for each of our products so that you know that your products will fit inside. If you want to know the external dimensions, please email us at help@buypackagingboxes.co.uk or call us on +44 161 850 8732

Are your products made from recycled materials?

Much of our range is manufactured from 80% recycled materials and is fully recyclable.

Help! My Order is Urgent!

We do our very best to provide urgent orders wherever we can. However, at peak times this is not always possible.
If your order is urgent, please call us BEFORE placing your order to confirm that we can meet your deadlines on +44 161 850 8732. Also, if your order is urgent, please specify the date that you demand your order to be delivered in the comments section when checking out.

I received an email that says my order is being manufactured, how long will that take? 

Depending on the product that you have bought the manufacturing can take between 3-10 business days. If you need exact lead time, please email us at help@buypackagingboxes.co.uk or call us on +44 161 850 8732.

Why are some of your boxes recommended for postage while others aren’t?

We have thousands of products available on our site. Our presentation gift boxes are made from a 285gsm paperboard which we do not recommend for postage. Our corrugated cardboard boxes, however, are strong and sturdy and excellent for postage. All of our custom boxes have a picture in their listing to say if they are suitable for postage or suitable for performance – just scroll down to the product description.
If you are unsure about which product you need our customer service team would love to help, simply fill out our online form, email us at help@buypackagingboxes.co.uk or give us a call on 03 8689 9344.

Can you manufacture boxes to my specific requirements?

Are you an Australian manufacturer?

We are proudly the United Kingdom owned company who makes around 80% of our products right here in Melbourne. We are registered with the Made in UK organisation.
If you want to check if the product that you require is UK made, look for the Made in UK logo on our website.

Can I get more than one sample of the same product?

Unfortunately not. Samples are provided so that you can test our quality and sizing.

Can I get a sample in multiple colours?

To help keep costs down for you we make our samples in bulk. This means that they are only available in white or brown (brown only for printed products). But don’t worry…. We’ll send you swatches of the colours that you need so you’ll be able to see the exact colour and finish of your box!

Are samples free?

In most cases, our samples do incur a charge. The sample charge is generally between $2-$10 (please note there are some exceptions).

As we get hundreds of sample requests each week we do charge for samples and postage, we want to keep our rates as low as possible and I’m sure that you serious customers don’t want to subsidise other peoples one off freebies!
