3 Tips For Successful Flower Delivery

Ordering a floral arrangement usually means an important event is right around the corner. Whether you’re decorating for a wedding, remembering a loved one or hosting a party - flowers add that special something to the occasion. But transporting them safely and securely can be stressful and a lot can go wrong in the process. Follow these tips for successful flower delivery.

1. Choose the Right Vehicle 

You may have a hundred arrangements that you need to take to a reception hall or one bouquet that you’re bringing to a loved one on their birthday. Choose a vehicle that accommodates your flower delivery size. If your arrangements require a large van, don’t try to cram them into a small two-door car. Although it seems obvious, it is a critical step in safe flower delivery.

 2. Opt for Climate-Control

Transport your arrangements in a climate-controlled vehicle and keep all windows closed. Wind blowing through open car windows will dishevel your flowers and make them look less than perfect. Always keep the A/C on high and windows up to ensure that your flowers stay fresh and intact upon arrival. Additionally, keep arrangements out of the sunlight if at all possible.


 3. Secure the Arrangements

Keep arrangements on the floor of your vehicle and make sure they are placed on a flat surface. Don’t place florals on the dashboard or in the trunk where they’re bound to slide around. It’s helpful to place arrangements in cardboard boxes with dividers to keep them secure during the ride. Tall, wide arrangements can fit in larger buckets and small arrangements may be able to fit into a cup holder.
