Need to pick up a balloon order outside of shop hours? We will endeavour to assist! Pop on in, or shoot us an email and we will do our best to make that happen for your special occasion. 

 

Can I order balloons for same day pick up? 

Yes. Please come into the shop or call 02 8328 0378 to place an order for same day pick up. We cannot accommodate orders placed online for same day pick up. Personsalised balloons booked same day will incur a rush fee and are not always available.  

 

Are the balloons listed on your website the helium filled price? 

No. The balloons listed online ship or are available for pick up flat and uninflated. 

We have found it to be much more effective and helpful for our clients to come into the shop or order over the phone instead of email as there are many details to be worked out in creating your unique order. 

 

 

Do you offer balloon delivery? 
We are a very small business with a small staff size. Minimum charges and advanced notice will apply for deliveries should we be able to accommodate you request. 

 

I have cancelled my party, can I cancel my balloons? 
The moment your order is placed our team begins preparing your unique order. Therefore, balloon cancellations with more than 72hrs of notice (prior to scheduled pick up) will result in a 50% refund or 100% store credit to be used toward a future purchase. Cancellations of balloons within under 72 hours notice will not be refunded.

SHIPPING INQUIRIES 

I need to party soon! How quickly will my order be shipped?

We want to get the party started right away! We process all on days we are open (Tuesday to Friday / our post office is closed Saturdays). If you need something right away, please send us an email and we will work with you to get you your items sooner. 

Please note that during promotions and sales orders may take longer to ship. Please leave us a note with your order, or email us prior to placing your order if you are under tight deadlines. Express shipping does not mean your order will be dispatched faster, only that it will be express posted. 

My item says "COMING SOON" but I can buy it today, when will it ship?

Your item, along with any other items purchased at the same time, will ship as soon as that entire order is available. Meaning if one item is available today, and the other in a few weeks, we will hold your in stock item until we can ship both together. If you would like it to ship separately, please let us know. Additional shipping charges will apply for separately shipped items.  

Do you ship internationally?

Absolutely!! Let’s spread this bash across the world!

We cannot be responsible for any international custom and duty fees, taxes, or brokerage fees assessed by the carrier. These fees are in addition to, and not included in, the cost of shipping. We are obligated to declare all items as merchandise, and will not mark items as "gift". We cannot be liable for any delays due to packages held at customs.

Standard shipping to the United States can take up to 15 business days in some cases, so if you have a specific event you need the supplies for please email us and we can get you a quote on expedited shipping. 

 

I forgot something! Can I change, cancel, or add to my order?

Email us at hello@palmandpine.com.au and we'll see what we can do! If you order has not shipped we should be able to make these alterations, but be quick –usually cannot make alterations to an order after it is placed.

 

My package tracking says "delivered", but it never arrived. What should I do?

Sometimes, local carriers will list packages as delivered when they arrive in the local facility, in which case, it may take two more days for the package to arrive. Contact the carrier to confirm the package is not being held, and search the premises to see if your package could have been left somewhere on your property.

In the unlikely event your package was lost or stolen in transit, we are not liable, and cannot be held responsible for missing packages which have been delivered by the carrier.

 

I live in Newcastle, and I need party stuff RIGHT NOW! Can I pick it up in person?

Of course! Orders are available for pickup at our shop in Newcastle West the day you order (check our shop hours for times). We understand the need to party immediately!

You will still be required to enter your shipping address at checkout, please note we will NOT ship to you if you select this option. It's just the way the system works. 

Just think, if your billing address is the same, you don't need to enter it later.
