At 1-800-Balloons we make every effort to deliver your order as quickly and as conveniently as possible. Every gift is hand delivered by a professional so you have the confidence that your gift was received in good condition..
If orders are received by 2:00 PM in the recipient’s time zone Monday through Friday or noon on Saturdays we will make every effort to deliver the same day. Sunday orders should be placed with our telecenter by calling 1-800-Balloons (1-800- 225-5666) to check availability in the service area..
If we encounter a problem for the service area you are requesting, a customer service representative will call you and/or email you to keep you updated on the situation. For example, if the recipient isn’t available when we attempt to deliver or we cannot reach them on that day, we will attempt to re-deliver the next day. Orders received after the cut off time may be delivered the following day. Given order timing, recipient availability, etc. we cannot guarantee that we will deliver on an event-specific date, but every effort will be made to meet your timing. In the event that we fail to deliver the amount of balloons requested we will issue a full refund for each missing balloon for its individual value.
Deliveries are typically made between the hours of 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM to business locations and between the hours of 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM to residence locations. Regretfully, we are unable to guarantee time of delivery, as this depends on our affiliate’s delivery schedule in the service area you request. If you have a special situation, please call us at 1-800-Balloons (1-800-225-5666) and we will do our best to accommodate you. In some cases additional fees will be applied for time sensitive orders..
Before major holidays, we recommend that orders be placed at least five days in advance due to heavy volume.
Delivery To Hospitals
1-800-Balloons is experienced at making deliveries to hospitals and works within the procedures set up by various institutions and in most cases only allowed to deliver to the nurses station or holding room. Unfortunately, ICU patients are often not permitted to receive gifts. Also, we do not deliver latex balloons as most hospitals do not allow them and some hospitals may not accept balloons at all. Please check with the hospital regarding delivery policies before placing your order.
When placing your order, please make sure to include the hospital name and telephone number as well as the recipient’s name and room number or ward.
Recipient Not Home
If the recipient is not home when our local representative attempts delivery they will do one of the following:
Call the recipient to schedule another delivery time
Leave a note on the door asking the recipient to call to schedule another delivery time
Leave the gift (not balloons) in a secure area such as the entrance, porch, garage or carport
Leave the gift with a neighbor and place a message on the recipient’s door indicating where the gift is located
If you have specific instructions for the delivery of your gift, please call us at 1-800-Balloons (1-800-225-5666) to discuss. We will do our very best to meet your needs.
While we work closely with our affiliate network to ensure that what you order is what is delivered, occasionally we may need to substitute product due to local availability issues. If this is the case, our trained local affiliate will ensure that the general look and feel of your gift is retained and the substitute products will be of equal or higher value.
Additionally, depending on when the order is placed (must be before 2:00 PM in the recipient’s time zone) or the availability of the recipient to receive the gift, we may not be able to meet the timing of an event-specific date. Rest assured that we will do everything possible to deliver on the date you request, but we cannot guarantee it and some orders may have to be delivered at a later date.
