These special ordered items are yours and the value will be deducted from any in-store credit. We will make arrangements with you to pick up these items at your earliest convenience.
What is your balloon replacement policy?
We take great pride in providing only top quality latex balloons from Qualatex. All of our latex is pretreated with Hi-Float™ to help ensure you get the maximum helium float time from your latex balloons.
Typically, your latex balloons indoors should last anywhere from 7-14+ days. Extreme temperature changes (heat or cold), exposure to sunlight will affect the life of your latex balloons substantially. We cannot guarantee how long your balloons will last.
Latex or Foil Balloons used in outdoor arrangements are not guaranteed to last any specific amount of time. Sun, heat, rain, wind, etc will affect the lifespan of your balloons.
After your balloons have been delivered we are not responsible for any popped or deflated balloons as we cannot control the environment or handling of the balloons. The latex and foil balloons used in your arrangements have been pre-inflated at least a minimum of 1 hour prior to delivery to ensure there are no leaks.
How far in advance should I place my order?
We advise to book your order in with as much advance notice as possible, this helps ensure that we have the supplies and the availability to get you booked in!
We understand life is hectic sometimes and you may need a last minute order, we're always happy to help out with those as well! If we have availability in our schedule we will be glad to get you set up for a balloon delivery!
What if I want something you don't normally stock?
We always want to help you make your event as special as possible and sometimes that includes a special theme that we don't stock on a regular basis.
We can always check with our vendors for any special requested themes or items. Orders for special requested themes or items must be made at least 2 weeks prior to your delivery/event date. Any special item request under the 2 week timeframe will be subject to a "Rush Order" charge of $9.99+Tax
Will my balloon order really look like my digital sample I was provided?
At Up & Away Balloon Co. we want to make sure that you're happy with what you're ordering before you order it! That's why in some instances we will provide you with a digital sample of what your balloon bouquets or decor will look like prior to you placing an order.
Any colour changes or adjustments can be determined at this stage until you're happy with your selection!
Will my balloons arrive at the time I selected to have them delivered?
We make every effort to accommodate you for your requested delivery time (pending availability) and strive to deliver your order on time every time. We allow a 30 minute window around your selected delivery time to allow for other deliveries and any unforeseen circumstances such as traffic, etc. If your appointment email notification advises of an 11:00AM delivery, your order will arrive between 10:45AM - 11:15AM.

What happens if no one is home to receive my balloon delivery?

If we are not notified that you will not be home and make a delivery attempt there will be a re-delivery fee and you will need to contact us to reschedule your delivery.
If you are sending balloons to someone as a gift, it is your responsibility to make sure they are aware you have a delivery scheduled for them at the selected date and time.
I've purchased latex/foil balloons elsewhere, can you inflate them?
Unfortunately, we've had to make the hard decision to stop inflating outside latex/foil balloons. Due to the poor quality of some latex/foil balloons there was an excessive amount of wasted helium. With helium at such a high demand and high cost we decided to just fill latex/foil balloons that we've tested and trust the quality of.
