What are the shipping costs for Federal Express?

Florabundance is a member of the California Growers & Shippers and passes on the discounted shipping rates on orders shipped via Federal Express delivery service and GSO/GLS. Shipping costs are additional and added to your order after it has been packed. Federal Express charges are based on weight, box dimensions, and your shipping zone. Box charges are additional. Complete shipping charges are calculated and available on the date of your shipment. Your Floral Wholesale Consultant can help you estimate these costs. The shipping cost you get charged at time of check-out online may be adjusted according to actual cost.

What are the shipping costs for GLS/GSO truck delivery?

There is a fixed rate schedule. The freight amount is determined by the box size and its weight. This service is very convenient and less expensive than Federal Express, but it is not available to all areas. Please check with your Wholesale Floral Consultant for destination locations covered by GLS/GSO. It is a service that focuses on the west coast states with overnight delivery to most locations in California and Nevada.

What are the shipping costs via Air Freight?

This varies according to the airline and the destination city. We can utilize any current method being used by the customer, or we can help you research some alternatives.

How many bunches does each box hold?

Please remember that these are estimates because flowers range in size. Some bunches require more room than others.

The four main sizes used by Florabundance are:
Full Box (44x20x12) = 20 to 29 bunches
Half Box (44x20x6) =  11 to 19 bunches
Quarter Box (44x10x6) = 5 to 10 bunches
Petite Box (33x8x6) = 1 to 4 bunches

Florabundance box charges are among the lowest in the industry. Ask your Wholesale Floral Consultant for details.

Can I receive product on Saturdays?

Florabundance offers Saturday shipments to qualifying areas. Please contact your Wholesale Floral Consultant to determine whether or not Saturday shipments can be received in your area.
