Claims Policy

Claims Policy

Although a problem with a flower delivery rarely happens, perishable products will have the occasional issue. Knowing this, we've set up an easy way to let us know that something's not right. 

Our goal is to respond to you quickly with a solution.

However, in order to make sure that we understand what’s happening, you will be required to follow our procedure and comply with any requests that we have.

How to File a Claim

Claims must be submitted within 24 hours of DELIVERY to qualify for reimbursement or reshipment. 

Should you encounter a problem with your flowers or greens from Going Bloom you can call, text or email us (depending on your preference) to let us know. Then answer a few questions and send some photos. 

Here are the instructions: 

  1. When your boxes arrive, inspect all flowers for errors or product damage. Any problems with your flowers or greens must be reported to the claims department by email or text within 24 hours of their arrival.
  2. If you wish to claim a product, you must send photos. We can accept claim pictures by text (888.984.3894) or email (Claims@GoingBloom.comand include a description of the issue and the photos listed below, it's also helpful if you let us know your preferred contact method (call, text or email).

Photo's we might request - pay attention here, this is important:

      • A photo of the FARM label. This is the one with the contents in the box - sometimes this is written by hand.
      • Any quality claims must include a photo of all the affected flowers in a group shot.
      • Quality claims must also include close ups of the issue on multiple stems, as well as any other shots that you think might help us see the problem.
      • If you have received the wrong color or type of product, lay all of the bunches out on a table so that we can see them.
      • Additionally, for quality, wrong color, or variety claims, we also require a photo of all the variety labels – these can be found on the outer wrapping for each product. If the farm or grower didn't label what you've received, then please mention that in the text/email (otherwise we might email you back asking for them).

    Once submitted, we'll be in touch as soon as possible - keep in mind that claims filed outside of our regular business hours, will not be responded to until after we've returned to the office.
