If you need to have your flowers re-delivered due to failed delivery, you will need to pay $17.00 to cover our delivery companies’ redelivery.
This price does not include event florals. The cost of delivery for events (i.e. weddings, christenings, parties etc) can vary depending on the event.
If there is no answer, flowers will be left by the door in a safe, cool, and shady spot by the door.
For businesses, please include the following information:
- Name of the business
- If the flowers should be delivered to reception, a security desk, or other instructions.
- Any other important building access information
- If the order will be left at main reception or security for collection
- Please ensure the recipient will be at work on that day prior to ordering.
If the flowers are in transit, and the recipient leaves work earlier on that day of the order, please contact us ASAP. We will coordinate pick up or redelivery at the next available time, depending on the time and new address details some day delivery may not be possible.
Please include the following with your order:
- Name of Government Department
- Building name, building number/level
- Important access information i.e., take to security desk
- Direct work phone number/business unit area
Please be aware some government buildings do not allow deliveries to be left at the front desks/security desk unattended until the individual comes down to collect it.
For businesses that do not allow this please make note at the checkout and provide sender details. The delivery driver will give curtesy calls and attempt to contact the receiver for collection.
Please note if there is no answer after several attempts, the delivery driver must continue with their journey to avoid other people missing out on same day delivery. This will result in a failed delivery.
If this results in a failed delivery you will be notified by The Floral Society Team.
SECURED UNITS AND RESIDENTIAL COMPLEXES:
If flowers are going to a secure complex, please make sure the recipient is home. The delivery driver will ring the receiver through their telecom upon arrival.
If the sender has provided the contact information for the person receiving the flowers with their order, our courier will also attempt to contact them upon arrival if they don’t answer their telecom.
Please note if there is no answer after several attempts, the delivery driver must continue with their journey to avoid other people missing out on same day delivery.
If this results in a failed delivery you will be notified by The Floral Society.
The Floral Society will contact the sender to arrange collection or delivery at the next available time.
Please contact the Hospital prior to ordering to double check if the person receiving the flowers has not been discharged.
For Private Hospitals this will be left at the main reception for staff/nurses to pass on.
AGED CARE FACILITIES
Any deliveries going to an Aged Care Facility will be left at the reception to distribute.
Deliveries will be left at the front reception for staff to distribute.
WHAT HAPPENS IF A FAILED DELIVERY OCCURS?
In the event of a failed delivery, same-day delivery is not guaranteed, this is due to our multiple pre orders and flowers being in transit.
The Floral Society will be in contact with the person sending the flowers in these circumstances to arrange redelivery or collection from the Fyshwick store at the next available day and time.
