One of the questions we are asked regularaly is if Icover specific areas, like Dublin, Ireland, Coleraine, Newtownabbey, Galway,
Manchester, even New Zealand. Well the answer isn’t totally straight forward, or rater it is straightforward but quite often not the answer people are hoping for, the answer is yes, if you pay me enough 🙂
It really also depends on the product or service you want us to supply;
Iif it is just printed balloons then we usually send them out with a courier or in the mail, so they can be sent pretty much anywhere at a reasonable cost, at the time of writing (14th January 2012) it will cost £5.00 to send up to 5000 balloons to anywhere in Northern Ireland, or £7.50 to anywhere in the South of Ireland, the rest of the UK will cost up to £17.50 depending on quantity. We also post out to the rest of the world at the normal Royal Mail/Courier rates.
We do prefer to use delivery services which are trackable and preferably next day, you just wouldn’t believe how often people phone us up telling us their package hasn’t arrived and when we check it was delivered that morning or the day before, we are usually able to tell them the time that their printed balloons were delivered and who signed for them.
If on the other hand it is for balloon decor or a balloon delivery then we have to do the delivery ourselves and this will obviously be reflected in the price, in the local Newtownabbey area after 9:30 am it will cost £5.00, but if you want us to deliver to Cork for 8:30 in the morning then that will cost a lot.
I once had a client insist that I give her a price for doing balloon decor for her daughters wedding in Manchester, she didn’t realise that Google searches will give you results for companies that are outside your area, it actually took a bit of convincing that I was serious that the delivery charge would be in excess of £500.00 🙂
Generally most of our balloon decor jobs would be within a radius of about 50 miles from Newtownabbey, but if you need help in finding a company in a particular area then please give us a call and we’ll do our best to help as we have lots of contacts all over the country.
Oh, I nearly forgot, the job in New Zealand was for a balloon Bouquet to be delivered to an address in North Island, we were able to help the client by contacting a professional balloon company in New Zealand who were able to complete the job to the delight of the recipient.None found.
