Terms and Conditions - Balloon stock orders
Prices for individual products listed in our Balloons - Uninflated section are in Australian dollars and include GST. Postage/delivery and helium inflation are not included. See section 3 for delivery costs
Prices listed on our website are only available for online orders. Any orders placed via email or telephone may receive regular retail price for products.
2. Stock availability/substitution
Our website is designed to only show products we have in stock. We generally hold numerous quantities of each product but as we receive a large number of orders every day, the item you have selected may subsequently be sold out or unavailable. We will contact you via email and/or telephone to discuss your options (refund, substitution of similar item or holding your order until more stock arrives).
In some cases, the manufacturer may vary designs slightly. We have noted these where possible in the item description, and reserve the right to substitute balloons of similar or greater value where the basic design is minimally altered. Should there be a significant difference, we will contact you to discuss your options.
Please ensure your correct details are provided when you place your order. Should we be unable to reach you and if we have not heard back within a reasonable time, we will send the items that are available and refund you for out of stock items.
If your order is for multiple quantities of a particular item(s), we may need to re-stock to fulfil your order and this may delay the shipping of your order. We will contact you if the delay is more than 2 working days outside the delivery times in section 3.
3. Shipping/turnaround times
Balloons Online prides itself on speedy processing and shipping of all orders in a timely manner. We pay particular attention to the 'Special Order Instruction' specified by you during the checkout process, so if you require the balloons by a particular day please be sure to include this information. We will contact you as soon as we can if we are unable to meet this event date.
