Delivery not even attempted
My issue is with the delivery of products, I got a very prompt email a day after placing my order saying it was on it's way, and then nothing. A week later I followed up and was told that it was delivered to a pickup point - which is a pharmacy about 2 km's away? I don't know why as I was home the whole time, no call from anyone that a delivery had arrived, no notification to say it had been delivered elsewhere. What looked like a good deal really isn't now that I have to go somewhere to pick it up anyway.
Stay clear, unless you want to ha...
Easier to click and collect with a price match elsewhere......
Postage way too slow. Still yet to receive goods. Ordered on 16th, courier picked up Qld on 22nd. Will be delivered approximately 28th. Lets see if it arrives by then. Wont use again. This has happened before. I should have known better. In future Will price match at Petbarn, Petstock and have it that day. Forget Budget direct, there many retailers who are so much better, online and off.
Never received item
Over a week ago I ordered my product for my little dog,for his joints ordered 2 lots haven't received them won't be ordering here again,I ordered this product for my little shitzu for his pain would of been better getting it from the vets
Delivery took forever 13 days, customer service poor
I ordered product with was in stock on the 26 June. It was finally delivered on the 9 July after spending 8 days with the courier in Sydney. I live in the Sydney metro area.
I will never purchase from them again.
I wanted to order litter and dry food for cat at the same time.
They didn't have stock of litter.
I wanted to order both items and save on delivery charges...
They wouldn't concede issue was their problem. I was doing the right thing they couldn't supply and wouldn't allow me to have saved on delivery charges.
I will not buy from them again
Forget about delivery - you'll be expected to pick it up yourself
If you're planning to order products through this web site then you had better make sure there is petrol in the car. Because the package is not going to come to you.
I've been using @bpproducts for several years now - and delivery has always been slow. They have good prices but tend to frequently run out of stock on many of the products that I require. My problem is not so much with @bpproducts as it is with their delivery partners, @Aramex Fastway. However that's an important component of the service that I am paying for, and I intend to focu...s on it in this very poor review. Whereas delivery used to just be slow and unreliable, now delivery is non-existent. Aramex Fastway don't even bother trying to deliver the shipments to me anymore, they just take them straight to the collection point in the next suburb. There is a pet shop there that is far more convenient if I'm going to have to drive, it offers the same prices - and what would I do if I didn't drive? Not only did Aramex Fastway once again take my latest shipment to the collection point in the next suburb, but it took them seven days to on-board it for delivery from the Sydney depot. Then for another two days they said they couldn't get to me. Then the next morning they claimed they were unable to deliver it, even though I was at home the whole time and had completed an authority to leave. Aramex Fastway are the delivery company that doesn't deliver.

Delivery/getting products out - non-existent
States posted 1-2 business days from payment, paid on 2/5/2021 (Sunday), phoned on Wednesday still had not posted. As of today still no package, tracking says next week to that is 15 days after paying (and that is if it arrives on Monday). Not acceptable. Not happy. Too bad if you needed in a hurry. First time using, never again.
Poor customer service
As I hadn’t received my order after nine days I phoned customer service to see what has happened to my order, I was promptly told delivery takes up to 10days, as I was waiting on worming medication for my cat, I was concerned how much longer did she think it would be. The customer service person was very abrupt and kept saying it takes up to 10 days for delivery, their website says 1-2 days for despatch and it doesn’t take 10 days for delivery to Sydney. Very disappointed with budget pet products, if your customer service people can’t be more helpful and polite to your customers think about replacing them, I won’t be buying off you again.
no communication on delivery
I odered a bag of dog food
Checked out the tracking,there was a number beside your package is on its way
but no show
but the number was not the indicater of delivery tracking
,looking closer it had times of so called pick ups
So it got to the deliver station in my area at5.28 PM i and took 5 mins to be delivered to my home 5.33 PM
was sent a photo,not my place,and was then kinda told it took me this long to contact,so implying its some how my fault.
I thought like most deliveries these days I would get a final email,saying it was delivered,and then I could contact,coz it did not arrive.
So my gates been left unlocked all last week and now could take 2 days to resolve...
Big range, non budget shipping at times
Personally nothing all that bad to say about them, variety of stuff that other online retailers don’t stock, I just personally wouldn’t call them Budget. Even if stuff is cheaper the delivery fees will often make it the same price or you’ll die when you see the cost.
I checked the shipping cost for a friend as her food was indeed cheaper, the cost was over $30+, making the food more expensive than the other online shop.
I’ve had to contend with $15 shipping fees as well, considering the many opposing online stores featuring free shipping ab...ove $20-50-100 depending on the store, they really need to step their game up. Especially if they ever want to be considered actual Budget like their name suggests. Will remove a star for expensive shipping fees actually and change title.
I placed an order for Moxiclear for cats with this company on 31 December 2020. The item was supposed to have been dispatched from Queensland on the 4 January, have not received the goods today is the 12 January and I still have not received the goods. Notified customer service who advised that it would take up to 10 business days to receive my order. I am in Sydney it does not take 10 business days for an item to come from Queensland to Sydney. In the future I will buy the product from the vet I may pay extra but at least I will have the item immediately. Customer service needs to lift its game.
Terrible online store - takes several days for first order.
I ordered online and had payment processed by my bank - and then received an email requesting I tell them how many cents had been refunded to my bank - which will take several days!!!
This is why MasterCard SecureCode and Verified by Visa exist.
To add insult to injury, I discovered the products I wanted were cheaper on Amazon (with free shipping with PRIME anyway!)
Pay the extra few cents and use another online store.
These people don't understand online shopping
I purchased an order of some urgent supplies for my new dog, only to receive many hours later an email asking for verification of my identity which feels like a really odd concept--and something I haven't experienced in years of online shopping. I had hoped to get these products as soon as possible, but it looks like It'll be a massive delay. I'm going to avoid them in the future.

Don't deliver and then just ignore you
I ordered a product and after waiting for the delivery, I attempted to make contact via web chat and email. as they do not have a customer service phone contact.
I am still waiting for someone too contact me and for the product. Happy to take your money immediately and then ignore you when there is an issue
Shocking online experience
Problems logging in /changing password/then after numerous chats it wouldnt let me pay !!!
Makes it very hard to buy anything
Don't waste your time .They really make it far too hard
Questions & Answers
Why do you partner with Aramex for shipping product to consumers when Aramex are unreliable? I will be reluctant to buy from Budget Pet Products in the future due to problems with Aramex.
