How to Send Flowers to a different Country
Sending flowers internationally is easy as long as you know the processes involved in which you will find different ways where you can send the flowers via mail, use a florist near where you live or use international flower services. Detailed below are the steps you should undertake to ensure a safe delivery of your flowers to another country for all the three ways.
The first method is using an online flower delivery company which you should pick from about 2000 existing companies but you should be careful to note the locations these companies operate, so as to make sure that your recipient’s location is available. After that, choose the type of flowers that you would want to send, then include a personalized note that your service provider will include in the flowers after which you should select the shipping option and delivery date , and finally make the payment by providing the payment information and wait for delivery while tracking your order, read more.
Another way of making this delivery is finding a florist near the recipient who will charge you less money, deliver fresher flowers and reduce the complication of the process, which is initiated by finding the florist using a preferred search engine and making the order using their website, directly. Select an online arrangement of flowers based on the preferences of the recipient, include a personal note, choose your preferred delivery day and time and then pay for the flowers. This way however may not work as expected for all florists because the small ones may not have the system, in which case you should call them to make your order but should look for others if they do not have a delivery option, discover more here.
Your third alternative is to purchase your flowers locally and export them using an international shipper and ensure they are not prohibited and do not have an extremely heavy vase that will increase your shipment cost. After buying them, wrap a wet towel using a rubber band around their bottom side since soil cannot be transported, then dip them into water to ensure they do not die off. After this, wrap the out part of the wet towel using a polythene paper bag to protect their carrier box from wetness, get them into the box which is big enough to host them without damage, make small holes at the bottom side of the box, add zip ties to the box, add the note, place a lid and take them for shipment using the 1 to 2 days delivery option, read more here.
