Quote: The UK's largest bike retailer Chain Reaction Cycles are notorious for sending tiny nuts and bolts in boxes the size a a very large shoe box. On another forum I hang about on, so many people were complaining and ranting about it that a CRC customer relations chappy came on and posted that it was because the boxes are easier to stack if they're all the same size and shape, both in the warehouse and in the vans. Which sort of makes sense...
i use them regular or my business and get HUGE boxes or cables a tenth the size!! (ps.. use wiggle you get free haribos lol

When I worked for HP, we ordered four parts for computers - normal size of an internal PCI card. They came in a box, with bubble wrap in another box, clingfilmed to a wooden pallette.

"I see the environmental concern but having studied a bit of the supply chains, I shall point you the fact that they arrived unharmed! It could be the case of more c02 created if they had arrived damaged and you had to post them back, and expect new....
It looks ridiculous but I think whoever posted them out, must not had sold just one...... reserach taken under consideration all harm and pollution cretaed by high street shopping, finds that internat sales . when they go right, on the last mile as they call it, are more friendly to the environment -Unless you go shopping with public transport.

I once ordered 1 packet of copper toning solution from Silverprint and it arrived in a box the same size as the box that had my 6x1ltr bottles of universal developer.
Although to their credit it was a box that would have contained 6 ltrs of universal developer so 10 out of 10 for recycling
Hey, I have heard of warehouses so big that they can't find a 3seater sofa. It's like a needle in a hayhouse.
