About Us

www.pwdirect.co.uk / Packaging Warehouse Direct started life as a part of Auctionpax Limited formed in 2002, then run from premises in Southport.
Very soon the demand for packaging outgrew the space available, and so the company was bought by myself (Ross), Dave & Jan. (with Jan leaving us during 2008) This coupled with a relocation to Bacup in 2004 meant the company was well positioned for massive expansion and over the last 17 years we have seen a steady increase with many many customers coming back day after day, week after week, A clear sign that we are getting things right! The warehousing and office space is vast, and with the employment of extra staff along the way, the company has been growing at a very steady pace.

Massive investment in 2018 / 2019 has seen a huge leap forward in the automation of our order processing systems and grouped with our brand new website, shows our commitment to the future and staying right here, supplying your packaging needs for a long time to come !

Are you local? We also have a trade counter / cash & carry section in our warehouse. This is open to the public 10am – 2pm Monday – Friday selling all items available through www.pwdirect.co.uk straight and direct to you the general public at even more reduced prices than our already great value internet prices, so if you are in the area please call in and see us, ring us on 01706 87 28 73 for directions.

The launch of our sister website www.vitalsd.co.uk in July 2015, shows our commitment to satisfying our customer needs, at www.vitalsd.co.uk we have available off the shelf over 10,000 different safety, warning and advisory signs, which when multiplied by the various sizes and materials available means a choice of well over half a million different signs available. We also offer a bespoke, personalised service.

Our fantastic service (we think our ebay feedback of approx. 100,000 proves that!) has gained us thousands of regular customers. Whether you are looking for bubblewrap, Jiffy bags (we also stock Mail lite branded padded envelopes), strong cardboard packing boxes for moving house & storage and other white cardboard mailers (including PiP - Royal Mails "Pricing in Proportion" friendly items), clear / brown parcel tape, safety signage or printed personalised items you know you can rely on us!
