How will I know my delivery was made successfully?

When your order has been successfully delivered you will receive an automatic delivery confirmation via email at the address you provided. If we have any difficulties with your order, we will contact you by telephone and/or e-mail.

Why do you need my recipients phone number?

We will contact your recipient if we have any delivery issues, if we are experiencing extreme weather conditions (heat, cold) to confirm they are available to accept delivery. We will also contact your recipient to request specific delivery instructions if they are not available to accept delivery at the address you provided.

What if I entered the wrong address or other incorrect delivery information by accident?

Changes to address information or incorrect addresses after the order has been placed resulting in a re-delivery may be subject to a re-delivery fee. If you realize you entered incorrect information, please contact us as soon as possible to correct your order.

What delivery guarantees can Dottie's make for deliveries going out of town?

In the U.S and Canada, same-day delivery is generally available Monday through Saturday on orders received before 12:00pm in the recipient’s time zone (excluding holidays and peak floral delivery periods). Orders received after 12 pm in the recipient’s time zone may be delivered the next delivery day.

Most florist shops make deliveries during normal business hours (9am to 5pm), However, since we do not know each florist’s delivery schedule for a particular day, we will be unable to guarantee delivery requests for a specific time or within an hourly range unless verbally agreed. Requests may be taken for an AM or PM deliver with a verbal confirmation, but they cannot be guaranteed without an additional fee required for special delivery.  Deliveries to a funeral service are generally an exception to this rule.

What happens if the recipient is not home/at work when the delivery is attempted?

The delivery driver may choose to leave the arrangement with a neighbor or coworker and attach a note to the recipient’s door stating who accepted the arrangement on their behalf. Or if the area is secure, to leave the arrangement at the door or in a safe place. 

The delivery driver may also leave a note on the recipient’s door asking the recipient to call the florist’s shop and arrange a convenient time for pick up or re-delivery. There may be a fee for re-delivery.

If the recipient is at work all day, we suggest sending the arrangement to the workplace.

Can I still have flowers delivered today?

We do offer same-day delivery on orders placed on our website or over the phone by 3 pm Monday thru Sunday. 

We do reserve the right to cut off same day delivery at any time and any day without notice.


What makes our flower delivery service so great?

  1. DELIVERY CONFIRMATION:  Our drivers personally confirm their deliveries as soon as they're able. The confirmation will tell you what time your gift was delivered or who it was left with, a service FedEx doesn't even offer. These confirmations may be slightly delayed at major floral holidays due to the high demands put on our personnel during these times. Of course, you must provide the correct contact information for this service to work.
  2. FLOWER-FITTED DELIVERY VAN: At Dottie's, we have fitted our vans with a grid system and insulation to guarantee that your arrangement gets to its destination cool and in one piece. Transporting flowers can be a lot like trying to transport an upside-down bowling pin, only the bowling pin is filled with water and is made of glass. That is why our drivers are trained to pack our arrangements in a specific and secure manner.
  3. SUNDAY DELIVERY TO FUNERAL HOMES: Many traditional flower shops aren't even open on Sunday. Not only are we open on Sunday we deliver to all the funeral homes in our delivery area. We believe the best way to insure your flowers arrive as fresh as possible is to deliver them on the day they are needed. 
  4. FROM OUR DOOR TO YOURS: Your gift never leaves our hands until it is in yours. Our delivery drivers actually deliver your gift from our door to yours. Seems obvious, doesn't it? Well, it’s not. Many online flower shops you may find operate as order gatherers and simply outsource their orders to whoever will take them. At Dottie's your order stays solely with us from online order to processing, designing, and ultimately delivery.  

How much is local flower delivery?

  • We deliver fresh flowers, roses, planters and occasion flowers to most of the northern Los Angeles area and parts of Ventura counrty. When ordering online we charge $14.95 for each delivery (does not include express delivery or long distance local delivery or holiday delivery fee) in our local delivery area.
  • In compliance with state and federal tax laws, sales tax will be added to your order where applicable.
  • Please make sure that your order information is accurate and complete in order to avoid delivery delays.

Do you deliver flowers outside of the Los Angeles Area

We can deliver to locations outside of Northern Los Angeles but an additional fee will be added on to your order. Delivery times and dates are limited on non-local deliveries.

How do I check the status of an order?

Holiday Deliveries:

During the busiest times of the year we ask for your patience with getting your gift delivered. We make every effort to get all our deliveries out in a timely fashion and turn down orders when we reach maximum capacity. The more we have to stop and identify the status of an order the more it can slow us down. 

Please remember that in order to meet demand at the busy holiday season we have contract drivers that come to help deliver your package. It can take some time to identify which contract driver has your gift and when your gift may be made delivered. It is also important to keep in mind that unless you paid for express delivery we do not consider your delivery late until after 5 p.m. for businesses and 6 p.m. for residential deliveries. If you still feel the need to contact us it is usually best to contact the store that you placed your order with to obtain the status of an order. 

One of the services that we provide is in driveway delivery confirmation. We do our best to contact you the sender from the location the delivery was made to give you the most up to the minute status of your order. Once again we use part time delivery help at the holidays so this service is not always executed with the precision that our full time drivers often provide. E-mail confirmation of deliveries is also available but often comes later in the day once all the deliveries have been made.

Non holiday delivery status:

If you feel the need to contact us it is usually best to contact the store that you placed your order with to obtain the status of an order. You can reach us at (818) 996-2603. It is important to keep in mind that unless you paid for express delivery we do not consider your delivery late until after 5 p.m. for businesses and 6 p.m. for residential deliveries.

One of the services that we provide is in driveway delivery confirmation. We do our best to contact you the sender from the location the delivery was made to give you the most up to the minute status of your order. we do require a working phone number for this service to work. If you provided us with an e-mail address then you will also receive e-mail confirmation of your delivery once the driver returns to the shop.

Orders placed online:

Please wait at least one hour, after placing an order online, before contacting us to allow sufficient time for the information to be processed.

Do you deliver flowers internationally?

We will not be able to process international orders via our website. We would be happy to process the orders over the phone, by calling (818) 996-2603. There are additional fees associated with international orders. In addition, you will want to place your order at least 3 days in advance of when you would like it sent. There are no weekend deliveries.

What is Cupids express delivery?

Cupids express delivery is an option to have your gift delivered by a certain time of day. There is an additional fee for this service and the cost depends on how quickly you need your gift delivered. The cost will also depend on the time of day that you place your order. You will have an option at check out to choose the express delivery options that are available to you.

What happens if no one is home?

We have really good drivers that we empower to make decisions regarding what to do when no one is home. Every situation is unique and is dependent on weather, neighbors or business situations and what kind of shelter is available.

 In some cases they will leave the flowers at the door or on a porch.

We also allow them to attempt a neighbor to take the flowers.

Sometimes we have to deliver flowers before a person is at work, (ie. nightshift employees) many times we will leave the arrangement at a front desk or at their specific office. 

Sometimes they have no choice but to bring the flowers back to the flower shop. In that situation we will make arrangements with the recipient to make sure they get their flowers. 

In all cases it is the drivers decision as to what to do. Yes, sometimes they make a mistake, however they try to make the right decision.

We will leave a door tag with what we have done on recipients door if we are unable to deliver the flowers to a person
