*All delivery dates that we give are only for your guidance. We will not be responsible if your order is delivered late. If there is no one to accept delivery, information enabling you to complete the delivery will be left. Despatch of goods constitutes fulfilment of contract.

For all delivery including inflated balloons we are unable to issue any delivery charge refunds if the recipient is not at home.

All orders are thoroughly checked at point of packing and dispatch ensure that all are in perfect condition when they leave us.

But, in the unlikely event that your order is damaged or are not as those requested, please email us within 48 hours with details and return the order to us in their original packaging. We will then give you an immediate exchange or a refund.

*Duty payments and customs
Products delivered to some destinations, mainly outside the EU, may be subject to taxes, fees, levies or other charges, which are imposed by local legislation. The recipient of the products is responsible for all customs formalities for their export and import, and will be required to pay any additional charges, including import duty, formal customs entry, taxes, levies and other charges. The recipient of the goods, not the person who’s ordered them, will receive a separate request for payment of these charges.

If you’re ordering products to be delivered to someone else, please make sure they’re aware they’ll be responsible for these additional charges. Unfortunately we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be, so we’re unable to offer any assistance on these processes. We’d advise that you check the import charges applicable in any country before ordering products to be delivered there.

*If, for any reason, we are unable to ship your order within this time we will contact you to make you aware and offer you alternative goods, amendment to your order or cancellation.

Order not received - If we are not informed of deliveries not being received within 21 days of the order day, we will no longer be able to investigate this with our couriers and as such no refunds, returns of cancellations will be allowed.
