All of our balloon in a boxes are inflated and delivered with care. We use the following steps:
We selected balloons from high quality manufacturers who meet our set criteria:
1. Must be CE & BSI approved with inks safe enough for children.
2. Use high quality materials that can hold helium for a minimum of 1 week.
3. Have the appropriate licences if the selected balloon has characters on.
4. Used frequently by professional balloon decorators.
5. Be of high quality in which we can sell the balloon with confidence.
When the balloon is inflated, we use a professional helium cylinder provided by BOC or Air Products (Two of the UK's main suppliers of gases.) The Helium used is pure enough to enable the balloon to float but not pure enough to be used by medical equipment (This is often recycled from the MRIs and other medical equipment). This means that we re-purpose helium that would be released instead of taking away crucial helium supply needed by the medical sector.
We use a automatic shut off valve for our foil balloons and shapes. This is designed to shut off once the balloon is filled with the correct pressure. By using this, this stops balloons from becoming overinflated resulting in an increased risk of bursting as well as making sure the balloon is not underinflated; thereby ensuring the balloon is correctly inflated and is delivered in perfect condition.
We then add a weight to the balloon that is included in the price. We never sell balloons without a weight and discourage balloons from being released.
The balloon will then be placed in a sturdy balloon box that is designed to protect the balloon whilst in transit as well as being strong enough to cope with knocks when the box goes through the postal system. A tissue is added to the box for additional protection as well as additional decoration.
All of our orders come with a label that has a bar code as well as a tracking number. Standard 1st class by Royal Mail does not update the specific location of the parcel but confirms that the parcel has been delivered or not.
