When the Recipient Is Not Home
The florist may choose to leave the arrangement with a neighbor or manager and attach a note to the recipient’s door stating who accepted the arrangement on their behalf; or if the area is secure, to leave the arrangement at the door. The florist may also leave a note on the recipient’s door asking the recipient to call the florist’s shop and arrange a convenient time for re-delivery. Another option is calling the recipient first to arrange a delivery time. If the recipient is at work all day, we suggest sending the arrangement to the workplace. Incomplete or incorrect address or phone numbers may delay delivery. Most florists employ professional delivery personnel who will find the best delivery choice for your special gift.
Delivery to Schools
There are issues with deliveries to schools that customers should be aware off, floral orders are delivered to the office, sometimes the office does not notify the recipient, that a floral orders is in the school, often times on holidays such as Valentines day the office will refuse the delivery. It is Roses America’s policy that when we arrive at the school with the flowers our obligation is finished. That is if the flowers do not make it to recipient we still need to be paid.
Delivery to Hotels
Hotels have special issues in sending flowers to a guest. First the guest may not have checked in at the time the gift arrives. Secondly, many times guests are not registered under their name. When sending flowers to a hotel guest it is best if you give us the room number, arrival date and time, cell phone of the guest, any other names that they may be checked in under. We are not allowed to deliver to the guest’s room and we must leave them with the bell man or receptionist, many times we may need to tip the bell man – if so an additional charge will added to your bill. Our responsibility ends at the time the flowers have been delivered to the hotel, If the flowers are never delivered by the hotel to your recipient you will still need to pay for the flowers.
