Please make sure the recipient is available during delivery period. It is the customer's responsibility to make sure someone is available to sign for all orders. If the recipient is not in at the time of delivery, our shipments have a signature release meaning our carrier can leave packages at the door as they see fit. If flowers are not delivered on the carrier's first attempt or if packages are left at the door, 48LongStems will not be held responsible for any damage due to exposure or delayed delivery.
Special security measures that have been put into place for many buildings and institutions, such as hospitals, mandate that all deliveries be made to one central location. Packages will be delivered to these locations despite any specific instructions you may request. Please check with hospitals, schools, etc. before placing your order to understand restrictions at the intended location and to arrange for internal distribution of your order. If the location fails to properly distribute the order this is not cause for replacement or refund from 48LongStems. Our shipping carrier bill will serve as proof of delivery to the intended location should any dispute arise.
Replacements, Refunds and Substitutions
If you are unhappy with the flowers you have received, please send the flowers back to 48LongStems or send us pictures of the bad flowers within 24 hours from the time they were received. Fresh cut flowers have a limited life so flowers that are being returned must be shipped via overnight delivery. If 48LongStems is not afforded the opportunity to inspect your flowers in a timely manner we will be unable to determine if a replacement order is warranted.
If flowers are returned within the above mentioned guidelines 48longstems will replace the order with a similar order of equal value to be redelivered at a time requested by customer as long as delivery times coincide with our shipping carrier's schedule.
48LongStems will not be held responsible for roses that were not cared for according to the included instructions with the flowers or by the instructions posted on our website.
In very rare cases a specific color or flower may not be available for shipment on the requested ship date. This happens when shipments of flowers from the farm are delayed or do not make it on the aircraft as scheduled. 48LongStems will make appropriate attempts to contact the sender on the day of shipment to arrange for a substitution. If we cannot contact the sender, a different color or flower of similar price may be substituted. This is not cause for a refund or replacement. If the shipping carrier fails to make delivery on the requested delivery day, due to fault of 48longstems, 48longstems may issue a credit for a replacement order of equal value. Under no circumstance will 48longstems issue a refund due to our shipping carrier's failure or inability to deliver flowers on a promised day. If our shipping carrier losses a package, 48longstems will send a replacement order or provide the customer with a credit of equal value for future orders.
