We frequently receive questions regarding shipping options for wholesale flowers, wedding flowers, bulk flowers and gift bouquets. Please find below some guidelines which will help you are you select your plan your order:
- At the present time we only offer deliveries from Tuesday - Friday.
- We do not offer Saturday, Sunday or Monday deliveries.
Our goal is to provide you - our customers - with the finest fresh cut flowers at affordable prices along with top-notch customer service every step of the way. Please understand that our shipping policies are such so as to allow us to offer the quality and consistency that you would expect from The Grower's Box. Fresh cut flowers are a perishable product, and as such, every precaution is taken to ensure the flowers are delivered safely and in a timely manner.
Why no Saturday delivery? We have partnered with the finest shipping companies in the industry which include FedEx, UPS and OnTrac. What we have found is that Saturday deliveries can be difficult - especially if there are delays associated with inclement weather or plane delays. In such cases, flowers are often not delivered until Monday (since these companies do not offer Sunday deliveries) - often meaning additional travel time for the flowers and missed delivery dates.
Why no Sunday delivery? This one is very straightforward… FedEx, UPS and OnTrac do not offer Sunday deliveries.
Why no Monday delivery? Just like FedEx, UPS and OnTrac, our flower farms are closed on Sunday - so shipping overnight Sunday for a Monday delivery is not an option. Some have asked about shipping on Saturday for a Monday delivery. Our farms strongly advise against this - and most of them do not offer such services due to additional travel times where flowers may not be properly stored in cooler facilities.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions regarding our wholesale flowers, wedding flowers, bulk flowers or gift bouquets or if you have any questions regarding the shipping of these fine flowers.
