Terms and Conditions

Poetry in Flowers Marketplace Pty Ltd – ABN 11 622 480 344 

Given the recent developments surrounding the spread of COVID-19, the Poetry family wants to assure you that we are taking every step possible to ensure the health and safety of our customers and employees.
We are regularly sanitizing all work stations and shared spaces and being diligent with hand washing practices. We have started to implement procedures for our drivers to avoid person-to-person contact where possible, this includes flowers or hampers being left at the front door of all home address deliveries and at reception desks with a text &/ or phone call being made to the recipient to let them know where they are left.
Times like this remind us how thankful we are to be a part of such a vibrant and resilient community, and how truly grateful we are for each and every one of you.
We thank you for your business and we hope to see you soon.
The Poetry Team

Delivery Terms 

By using our delivery service, you are agreeing to allow our drivers to use their best judgement as to whether your flowers can be safely left at the recipients address should no one be home to receive them. We hold no responsibility for the flowers after this time.

If an incorrect address has been provided you will be charged an additional delivery fee to cover the extra time for re-delivery.

If your delivery is going to a locked apartment building we will need the recipients mobile number to arrange a delivery time frame with them as we are unable to enter a secure building as such there is no safe place to leave them.

If your flowers are being delivered to a Government department please note we will need the recipients mobile number. Deliveries to Government departments are unable to be left with the security desk and we need a mobile number in case the recipient is unavailable on their desk line at security.

Delivery is for each ACT Metro address. RURAL DELIVERIES WILL BE AN EXTRA FEE. If this area is not shown in the checkout please phone our store to confirm we are able to deliver to your area and the price

There may be other rural locations that we may be able to deliver to that require an additional fee.
