Orders placed before 13.00 will typically be shipped on the same day, subject to product availability.

We use two shipping methods: Next day service via APC and a Pallet service which are sent via the pallet network. This typically takes 3 days on economy service**

The choice of method is driven by:

  • The size and weight of the order
  • The size/weight of the individual product(s) ordered. It is impossible to be completely prescriptive about the shipping method but as a guide please note:
    • Orders for gift packs/smaller boxes: Quantities up to approximately 500 units will typically be shipped overnight via APC and should arrive before 16.00*** on the next day.
    • Orders for large Beer/Cider bottle shipping / transit boxes: As a general rule these are shipped on pallets and sent via the pallet network. Delivery is via economy service and currently takes up to 3 days. If you wish to enquire about an upgrade to next day service please get in touch.
    • Beer/Cider can shipping boxes:
      • 6 and 12 unit boxes: Up to 250 units will typically be shipped on a next day service.
      • 24 unit boxes: Up to 200 units will typically be shipped on next day service. 200+ will normally be shipped on a pallet.

** The Pallet Network has been overwhelmed by the volume of pallets going through the network since lockdown and have extended their delivery of consignments to 3 days (economy service).

If you wish to enquire about an upgrade to next day service please get in touch.

*** Delivery times may change during busy periods.

Free Delivery on all Shipping / Transit Packaging

Here at Packaging for Retail we are always looking at ways of improving the value we offer customers. We believe our products are among the best on the market, and with the continuing upward trend in the cost of raw materials, the price of packaging continues to rise. That is why we have decided to remove delivery charges from our range of shipping boxes which are for shipping bottles, mini-kegs, cans as well wine and spirit shipping options.

You can now order the lowest MOQ from our range of shipping packaging (usually 50 units) without incurring any additional delivery cost. We will continue to charge delivery for the smaller gift pack items which typically incur much lower shipping costs.

Thank you for your ongoing support and very valued business. Bernie & David
