Balloon in a Box


Please choose your preferred day of delivery from the calendar on the product selection screen. We offer FREE weekday delivery on this product to Mainland UK (please see below for exclusions).

Due to the nature of this product, regrettably it can only ship to Mainland UK at present. Exclusions include Northern Ireland, Ireland, Scottish Islands, the Islands, Europe and the Rest of the World.

Important note: we cannot fully guarantee your selected day of delivery. We use DPD for our balloon deliveries and whilst 99% of our balloons arrive on the day you select, sometimes errors and issues beyond our control occur. DPD do an excellent job, but do have unexpected delays on occasions. If your balloon is delivered early (particularly Sunday/Monday deliveries) or 1 day later than expected then we will be unable to offer a refund. Please note that Sunday and Monday deliveries are at risk of being delivered early, DPD often upgrade these deliveries in order to move items through their network, this is rare but does occur and we have no control over this. We would recommend if the event date is important, that you select a delivery date the day before your desired date.
Saturday and Sunday deliveries are charged at £4.98 and £4.99 respectively, this represents the upgrade cost that DPD charge.

As we offer free weekday delivery and subsidised weekend delivery on all our Balloon in a Box items, these do not contribute to the free shipping offer for other items on the site when you checkout
