FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Thank you for visiting the Appleyard London frequently asked questions page. We have answered the most common questions customers ask us about ordering gifts online from us. If you are still unable to find the answer to your questions, please contact us.
Do the flowers come in a box?
All products are stylishly wrapped in cellophane and placed in a hydration box, which is then put inside an Appleyard London gift wrap and packaged in a large cardboard box for the courier to deliver.
Do you deliver outside London?
Yes, we deliver our bouquets, wines and gifts to 98% of the UK including Northern Ireland, the Scottish Highlands and Islands (*excluding next day delivery). Unfortunately we cannot deliver to the Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Isle of Wight or the Isles Of Scilly.
What if the recipient is not in?
The courier will leave a calling card for the recipient advising them of the attempted delivery and a proposed new delivery date. If this date is not convenient then the recipient can contact the courier depot and re-schedule an alternative delivery date or arrange collection. If you wish to leave the gift with a neighbour or in a safe place you can choose this option under the special delivery instructions section of our product page checkout.
Alternatively, once you have successfully placed your order with us, on the confirmation page you will see a section to fill in your recipient's details. This will allow your recipient to receive updates via text message and email about their gift. Please do not fill this in if your order is a surprise gift.
How can I amend or cancel an order?
To amend or cancel an order please call our customer service team on 020 3696 1136 (Call charges may vary according to your service provider).
