While we endeavour to honour Next Day Delivery and Saturday Delivery options, we are at the mercy of our couriers. Deliveries may be affected by adverse weather conditions and other factors outside of our control.

Please Note: All orders are dispatched in enough time so that they should arrive on your chosen delivery date. However, there are occasions where our couriers experience issues which means your delivery is delayed. If your delivery is one day late, we will not provide a refund except where you have chosen Saturday delivery, in which case we will refund £7.99. If your delivery is more than one day late, we may provide a refund depending on the circumstances.

Choosing Your Delivery Date

You can order at any time in advance of needing your balloon, and choose a delivery date at the checkout. Orders placed before 1pm can be sent for next day delivery (excluding Sundays and Mondays). You will be asked for a desired delivery date so that we can deliver your balloon in perfect condition. With an average float time of 2 - 3 weeks, we would recommend requesting delivery for the day before it's required to cater for any courier delays.

Non-Mainland UK and International Delivery

Delivery for non-mainland UK addresses, including the Scottish Highlands and Islands, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands, is calculated at the checkout.

Please Note: Delivery to Northern Ireland takes two days, so please bear this in mind when ordering.

How quickly will my order arrive?

Our aim is to dispatch all orders placed before 1pm on the same day. Any orders placed after that time will be dispatched on the next available working day.

We will send you a notification email when your order has been dispatched. The time your order takes to arrive will depend on the delivery option you choose. While we always try our best to dispatch every order following the above guidelines, during extremely busy periods dispatch times may increase by up to one day.

How can I track the status of my order?

You will receive an email to confirm we have received your order and that your payment has been accepted. You will also receive an email when your order has been dispatched.

In your dispatch confirmation email we will include any relevant tracking numbers, allowing you to track your parcel on the DPD website. You will only receive a tracking number if you have chosen a tracked delivery option for your order.

What days will my order be delivered on?

Our couriers deliver between 07.00 and 18.00 Monday to Saturday.

Will I need to sign for my order?

If you have chosen the Special Delivery option, you will have to sign for your parcel upon receipt.

Special delivery instructions

If you have any special instructions for delivery, such as leaving your parcel with a neighbour, please include them in the ‘special instructions’ section at the checkout. Please note that our couriers will not respond to notes left on doors for security reasons.

If you have any queries regarding your delivery please ring us on 01823 330976 or email us at

How carefully is my order packaged?

We take great care in packaging your order using the necessary materials according to its weight, size and how fragile it is.

What do I do if my order arrives damaged?

If any item you receive from us arrives damaged, please contact us as soon as possible on 01823 330976 or by email at We will then advise you on the best course of action.
