      Can You Deliver on a Specific Date?

      In short, we will make our best effort, but we cannot absolutely guarantee delivery on a specific date. If you would like to coordinate a specific delivery date, please choose UPS Ground, 2nd Day, or Next Day Air and leave a special request note at checkout with the date you want your package to arrive. Please do not use our Free Shipping service when delivery on a specific date is important.

      Please keep in mind that we utilize third party shipping carriers - primarily UPS and USPS - to deliver our orders. Carrier delays (or early deliveries) are always a possibility and no one can absolutely guarantee an exact delivery date.

      We recommend that you leave a buffer of a day or two to make sure your order will arrive when you need it and if your order is time sensitive please leave a note at checkout so we can make sure we can accommodate your delivery requirement before shipping.

      • You may request your order be sent signature required by leaving leaving a note in the special request box in the shopping cart.
      • Ultimately, the decision to collect a signature or not lies with the delivery person and we are unable to guarantee that a signature will or will not be required.

      Do you ship internationally?
      International Shipments:

      In addition to the USA, we ship internationally to the following countries using UPS or USPS: 

      • Canada
      • UK
      • Australia
      • New Zealand

      If your country is not listed above we encourage you to check out The Forever Rose Amazon Store and utilize Amazon's Global Shipping Program. Alternatively, you may contact us to request a custom quote and we may grant an exception on a case by case basis.

      If you do not see your country listed above or on our checkout page, we've still got a few options for you!

      1. Check Amazon US
        We sell some of our products on Amazon and Amazon does ship our products globally through their Global Shipping Program. You can find our items at the link below, and check and see if your address is eligible: The Forever Rose Amazon Store

      2. Use a package forwarding service
        There are companies who specialize in forwarding packages around the world. We ship them the package in the US and they send it on to you. Since we offer free shipping on orders over $50, this means you won't pay any extra in shipping to use this service. We don't endorse any specific company, but here is an article that provides some reviews of freight forwarders.

      3. Friends & Family in the US
        If you have a friend or family member in the US we could ship the package to them and they could forward it to you. Like my first suggestion, this really doesn't add any cost because we offer free shipping on all orders over $50, which covers just about every rose we sell. The other advantage to this is that some countries will not assess duties on items sent from individual to individual.

      4. Request an Exception
        Please contact us to request an exception to our international shipping policy. We will consider granting exceptions on a case by case basis, taking into account the destination country and our expected order volume. 

      Customs Fees, Import Taxes, Duties & Other Fees Are Not Included

      International orders may be subject to customs fees, import taxes, duties, or other fees imposed by your government. The Forever Rose does not charge these fees, and in most cases we have no advance knowledge of or control over the amount of the fees. All such fees are the responsibility of the purchaser and are not included in the shipping charges quoted to you during your purchase, either online or via telephone. Please contact your customs office for information about additional fees that may apply. If you refuse delivery of a package, you will be responsible for the return shipping costs, as well as any outstanding duties, fees, tariffs or taxes.
