Same Day Delivery Tracking Details
If you have ordered from our
Same Day Delivery Collection, these gifts are delivered by local drivers for which there are no traditional tracking numbers available. We will send you a delivery update email as soon as we have the information which is often very late in the evening of the delivery day or even the next day.
If there is a problem with your same day order we will contact you by email and in some cases phone. Please check your email and respond to our phone calls immediately because in the case of these orders time is often critical.
Same Day Delivery Tracking Designations:
Your gift is being delivered by a local delivery driver and not a major shipping company. Tracking numbers are not available. Please check the following designations for more information:
Your gift has been delivered to the recipient's address provided.
Out for Delivery
Your gift is on a delivery truck in route to be delivered. You will receive no additional contact unless we have a problem completing the delivery. We do not have contact with the driver. No changes can be made to your order.
Scheduled for Delivery
This designation is normally used for a future date and we are telling you that we have your gift scheduled for delivery on that date. Any change will result in additional charges. You will receive no additional communication unless there is an issue with the delivery.
Causes of Delays
It is usually something simple like an apartment number but it can cause a major delay. The worst possible error is a major zip code mistake because your gift is then in the wrong place totally and we have to start all over.
No One Is Home
We legally have to obtain a signature of an adult for a gift containing alcohol. We can not leave the gift on the door step or back porch. In the case of balloons we can not leave them if there is wind or adverse weather conditions. In the case of fruit and chocolate, heat is a factor. We leave it up to the local drivers to reach the recipient and make arrangements for a convenient delivery time or even alternative delivery destination. Very rarely do we have a problem getting the delivery accomplished unless the recipient is simply out of town.
Alcohol is Not Available
In some cases we can not legally make a delivery of alcohol at all due to local restrictions or licensing issues. If that is the case we call you to approve a substitution or a shipped gift. Please respond as quickly as you can to any calls or emails.
