Orders can be delivered worldwide to over 90 countries we operate in. Orders can be arranged for delivery on most days, except Sundays and public holidays. Standard delivery fee to major city areas is 12.95NZD for flower orders and this is added to the order at checkout (based on delivery address). Delivery fee for basket orders may vary. Some areas that are rural or remote will necessitate a delivery surcharge. On event days the delivery fee may also be higher. This will also be advised before your order is completed. Before major holidays, we recommend that you place your orders at least five days in advance to avoid disappointments.
Flower orders are generally delivered by 5pm for business addresses and 7pm for residential addresses, however exceptions may apply based on geographic location of the order and courier availability. While you have the opportunity to nominate a preferred time of delivery in the special delivery instructions of your order, it is not possible to guarantee that these times will be achieved. For orders going to a timed event, Ready Flowers strongly recommends that you provide us with an alternative address so the flowers can be delivered elsewhere if the event is missed. We do not deliver to P.O. Box or locked bag addresses.
Should an order be re-delivered due to unavailability of the recipient or incorrect recipient information or changes to the recipient information, Ready Flowers may make request to charge additional fees and delivery charges to your credit card. Re-deliveries may be completed on the next available delivery date. For further information, please see the 'refunds & cancellations' section below.
Recipient Not Available
Please note any specific instructions in the 'special delivery instructions' field during checkout. In all other cases, if the recipient is not at home, does not respond when contacted, or does not answer the door when the courier attempts a delivery, they will either call the recipient to schedule an appropriate delivery time, leave the order with reception or security office of the building, or leave the order with a neighbor. Ready Flowers will not be responsible should the recipient refuse to collect the order or if the order is left on premise as a result of not being able to gain access into the premise, or left there at your request. By default the order system will 'return to dispatch' when the recipient is not home. If you select any other option e.g. to 'leave at the front door', Ready Flowers will not be responsible if the flowers are lost or damaged.
Should you choose to have the order left at the front door, left under stairs or left at front of house as the Delivery Instruction for your order, our courier will follow these instructions accordingly when possible. Ready Flowers is not responsible, and refunds or compensation will not be provided, should the order becomes stolen, lost, or should the flowers deteriorate due to weather condition or being left unattended, whether or not if we were instructed by you to do so. Due to courier restrictions in selected countries, recipient may be required to collect the order from the nearest depot to the recipient, the building's security office, concierge or a front desk area on location; the recipient will be notified.
Order Cutoff Times*
Same-day delivery can only be guaranteed for flower products to major capital cities if these orders are received before 2pm Monday to Friday and by 10am on Saturdays and subject to the limitations in the next paragraph. Times are based on local time of the recipient's location.
Same-day orders that are not possible due to stock availability or geographic location of the recipient may be processed on the next available delivery date. There is no delivery on Sundays or local public holidays unless it is an event day. Deliveries requested for those days will be delivered on the next available delivery date.
Local Public Holidays
Ready Flowers cannot guarantee delivery on public holidays in the state or country of the delivery location, as couriers may not be available. All orders that are affected are rescheduled to the next available delivery date. Please check the public holidays listing by the government of the recipient's local area before placing your order.
We do not guarantee delivery to the following places due to access difficulties: hospitals (especially Intensive Care Units), army, air force, naval bases, ships, jails, cemeteries, secure buildings, hotels and mines.
Rural Or Remote Areas
Ready Flowers cannot guarantee delivery to some rural addresses and remote locations. To request a specific delivery time, please type it into the Special Instructions field during checkout. We will do our best to accommodate your preferences. As weekend delivery may not be possible in most of these areas due to unavailability of courier services, delivery will be automatically adjusted to the next available delivery date.
Some deliveries may be required to be collected from the nearest town or depot. If this is the case the recipient will be notified. Due to random scheduling and coverage of delivery route going to rural areas that is beyond the control of Ready Flowers, some orders may arrive 1-3 day(s) earlier or later.
Hospitals, Recovery Houses, Student Housing and Nursing Homes
When placing your order going to a recipient in a hospital or nursing home, please be sure to include the hospital name and telephone number, the name of the recipient and room number or ward of the recipient. Orders are sent in accordance with facility procedures. As most hospitals do not allow florists to personally deliver to individual rooms. Please note that many ICU patients are not permitted to receive flowers, and some hospitals do not allow lillies or latex balloons due to allergen reasons. Please check with the hospital before placing your order. As orders are likely to be left with the hospital warden or staff, Ready Flowers is not responsible for the safety or the remaining delivery of your order beyond the point of drop-off.
Ready Flowers treat funeral orders with the highest priority. To ensure your order is processed as smoothly as possible, you must include the following information in the 'address details or special instructions' section of the order form: Full name of the deceased, name and address of the funeral home and name and phone number of a relative, and date and time of the funeral. Please avoid delivery to the homes of the deceased as it is usually unwelcomed by the family to have to carry the flowers to the funeral home.
When placing your order going to a recipient in an office, please be sure to include the business name and telephone number, the name of the recipient and room number or indication of the area the recipient is located. You must include the hours the recipient is available on premise or whether to have the order delivery to the reception or administration office. As orders are likely to be left at the reception, Ready Flowers is not responsible for the safety or the remaining delivery of your order beyond point of drop-off. If no hours are provided, Ready Flowers will assume the recipient is available according to regular business hours of 9am to 5pm.
It is required that you select a delivery time of by 3pm or earlier. Please consider when school holidays are when placing your order. Please clearly indicate the school name and if the recipient is a student or a staff on premise. As orders are likely to be left at the reception, Ready Flowers is not responsible for the safety or the remaining delivery of your order beyond point of drop-off. If premise cannot be accessed or the order cannot be left on premise leading to a second or subsequent delivery attempt, an additional delivery fee may be charged.
The following must be included in the order information to ensure the success of your delivery: recipient's daytime phone number and preferably a secondary number of contact. Many private residences are not directly accessible by couriers and when it is not possible to leave the order at the office or security centre of the building, the recipient will be contacted to either retrieve the order at the entrance or assist the courier to gain access into the premise (usually by contacting the security office of the building to allow the drop-off). If the recipient cannot be contacted or is not available leading to a failed delivery, an additional delivery fee may be charged.
Hotels & Holidays Resorts
Please indicate clearly if the recipient is a guest or a staff at the location. The following must be included in the order information to ensure the success of your delivery: Hotel or Resort name, room name or number and address. If the recipient has vacated or checked-out of the hotel or resort at the time of delivery, the standard processing fee and delivery fee will be charged for the order. If a different address is provided after a failed attempt for delivery, an additional delivery fee may be charged.
Due to restrictions based on age, religion, country or state laws and country or state regulations, the alcohol portion of an order may not be allowed to be delivered. In such cases, we will try our best to contact you before delivery. However, we will replace the alcohol with equal value of flowers or gift items, whether or not we have managed to contact you regarding the substitution. You can always nominate a second gift preference in the special delivery instruction of your order if you so choose.
Ready Flowers will make every effort to complete each order as requested. Images shown on Ready Flowers websites are for reference only. As food items vary regionally and are not always available, we are unable to guarantee the inclusion of the items shown in our images. Ready Flowers will make reasonable substitutions when necessary. Gift baskets cannot be ordered with flowers due to delivery restrictions. Our advertised delivery costs are calculated per box. If your order exceeds the number of products that can fit in one box for the advertised delivery charge, we may contact you before dispatching if additional payment is required.
If no one is home to accept the delivery, Ready Flowers standard procedure is to leave the gifts safely at the premises where possible. Exceptions to this rule are: alcohol products which cannot be left without a signature, premises where our courier deems that it is not safe to leave the gift unattended, or if you specifically request in your order for the gift not to be left at the premises if it is unattended. In these instances the gift will either be taken to the nearest post office and a calling card left at the premises, or it will be returned to our office and we will be in contact to arrange a second delivery.
Both of these outcomes will result in an additional re-delivery charge to be debited to the customer's paying credit card, so we suggest that you ensure the premises is attended on the delivery day. You will be contacted by our store to advise that they are doing so when possible. Please note that although you may request for a delivery date, we cannot specify a time of day for delivery. For further information, please see the 'refunds & cancellations' section below.

Ready Flowers is committed to providing excellent service and products. If you have any enquiries relating to your order or delivery, please do not hesitate to contact us with our Feedback Form by clicking on here. All flowers are prepared fresh daily. We are unable to provide any alterations or amendments for orders that are in the process of being prepared, already prepared and/or in transit. Ready Flowers tries very hard to ensure accuracy of all product descriptions and website content is as accurate, informative, reliable and current as possible. If you believe we have not acted as described, your sole remedy is to refer to our Terms and Conditions.
Occasionally flower products may be substituted with flowers of different colour or types than the reference image due to unavailability or seasonality. Baskets and flower containers may be substituted with fair and reasonable alternatives due to their practical availability. In such cases, we will try our best to contact you before delivery. However, our priority is to deliver your order on time, whether or not we have managed to contact you regarding the substitution. In this instance, flowers of a similar shape, size and value but different type and colour may be used as substitution. Efforts will be made to maintain the overall effect of the arrangement. In arrangements of a single flower variety (e.g. single rose order), the flower type will take precedence over colour. It is recommended to indicate a second choice in your order description or 'special delivery instructions' to allow for any difficulty in supplying the order to exact specification.
You may specify a preferred colour in the 'special delivery instructions' of your order. If you do this and the colour or blend is unavailable we will substitute an appropriate colour or blend according to the occasion selected for your order. If you don't want any substitution when your nominated colour is unavailable and wish to have your order canceled, please enter '(colour) only, if not please cancel my order' in the 'special delivery instructions'. With our gift and baskets range, due to seasonal availability or lack of stock of items in a certain colour, we might do a minor substitution to ensure that your basket arrives on time. If the substitution substantially changes the basket, then we will contact you to discuss the options.
Refunds & Cancellations

If a delivery has been attempted unsuccessfully and requires a second or subsequent delivery to be made, an additional delivery fee will apply. Instances including but not limited to the following may result in an unsuccessful delivery: recipient is not available or located at the address provided, incorrect recipient information was provided, no safe location was found on premise to leave the product, recipient address is not apparent and additional instruction is required to locate the physical address. Re-delivery is scheduled on the next available delivery date as soon as the customer has provided us permission to charge an additional delivery fee onto their credit card. Customer may choose to have the order cancelled but will incur a cancellation fee equal to the full price of the arrangement including the delivery fee.
