Order FAQs

I'm a bit stuck, can I place my order over the phone?
We are not just an internet website.  You can place your order by phone, or drop into our Trade Counter which is based in Redditch, Worcestershire.
How long will it take for Richards Packaging to send my order?
We always endeavor to send out customer orders the same day, as long as you have placed your order before 1pm.  The rest is down to the delivery type you select, then it's down to the couriers or Royal Mail to delivery your items in the allotted time frame.
How long before I get delivery of my order?

This very much depends on the method of delivery that you have chosen.  If you place your order before 1pm and you have paid for next day, it will be with you on the next business day.

If you have opted for free delivery, the normal delivery time is 5 working days.

How is carriage charged on my order?

We do not make any profit margin on our the delivery costs.  We use an algorithm based on the courier charges to us.  This is weight based.  The heavier the goods, the higher the costs.

Some packaging materials are very light, which might make you think that our prices are expensive.  This is because our select courier partner has to then charge based on volume.  After all, a roll of bubble wrap can be huge and yet has a very small relative weight.
