I’m sure this has been done before
The clue is in the URL.
Surely they pay by volume for postage as well as weight?
Given the amount of business CRC give RM/PF, they probably have a flat rate.
Not to mention the box.
Cheaper than you think. Only need so many standard size bits of cardboard, which are cheaper and easier to move along the supply chain, your letterbox excluded, than a jiffy bag.

Aye, been done before… CRC are the royal mail’s biggest customer in NI so their contract rate won’t be off the shelf. As for the boxes, cardboard is dirt cheap, recycled, and recyclable, a lot of the cost goes on inventory, handling and printing which is all helped by standardising.Posted 4 years ago
I’m sure this has been done before (didn’t come up on search before I get flamed) but I couldn’t help but laugh when this morning’s post arrived.
The postie handed me a shoebox-sized package from CRC.
I chuckled and he looked gobsmacked when I informed him inside was a 35mm Allen Bolt!

Well I’m grateful for the protection they gave my bolt but I reckon a jiffy bag would have been cheaper. Maybe not??ste_tMember
Mate of mine worked at Crc for a while, when you get logical packaging is usually when the machine has broken down and they’re packaging by hand.
Made the mistake of getting my new gloves delivered to my house instead of work this week. Of course the box won’t fit through the letterbox!Posted 4 years ago
