Installation Set up


Balloon set up is NOT included with basic delivery.


BASHES Balloon delivery service is a front door drop off service.


Balloon set up is available starting at $85 per hour. Price will vary for set up based on the number of hours needed to complete the set up, general labor and delivery time.


Our team delivers to hundreds of customers weekly and our delivery schedule may not allow for set up assistance for your order.


Please discuss set up with a team member before booking your delivery.


Balloon Float Times


Float times will vary for all orders based on room temperature where the balloons are stored, exposure to outdoor elements and handling prior to use.


Latex balloons float for an estimated 8-10 hours. Add a balloon treatment and extend your float time by an additional 12 hours.

Foil/Mylar balloons float for an estimated 40-72 hours.


Balloon treatments cannot be added to foil balloons.


Your order is inflated between 2-6 hours prior to your delivery time in optimal temperatures to give your balloons the best float time.


DO NOT SCHEDULE A BALLOON DELIVERY OVER 12 HOURS BEFORE USE. This is too far in advance! If you need balloons in advance please discuss product options with a team member to ensure a good float time.


Damaged Products


While BASHES balloons are premium quality some products are very VERY delicate. It's a rare thing, but damages do happen and our team understands. If a balloon is damaged during delivery our team will document the damaged item(s) and submit this information to our office.


Replacement balloons are not available during deliveries. Our team will issue an OOPS credit for the damaged product and add this to your account for a future order.


If a balloon pops or is damaged once your order has been delivered you have up to 15 minutes to report damages to our team. Please share a photo of the damages with our team and an OOPS credit will be added to your account.


Delivery Policies 


BASHES balloon delivery service is a 'front door drop off' service. If your event or delivery location is on a floor other than ground level please make note of that information in your initial delivery inquiry. Residential apartment/condo deliveries and hotel deliveries will be left with the front desk/concierge if customer is not available to meet in the lobby.


BASHES will not refund or replace balloons that are damaged by guests at the delivery location during delivery or set up process.


Balloon deliveries must be cancelled no later than two weeks in advance to receive a partial refund or full store credit for future use. Written notice is required to cancel an order. Credits expire after 2 years.


Refunds are honored for balloons damaged prior to your delivery ONLY. Once your delivery is complete, you have up to 15 minutes to report damaged balloons to our team (photos are required). Approval can take 7 to 10 business days. After this time the order is final and non-refundable. INFLATION CHARGES ARE NON REFUNDABLE.



BASHES delivery team members DO NOT carry extra balloons, equipment or materials to help you set up or secure your balloons. Please request set up for your order before booking your delivery.


Delivery Attempts


In the event that you book a delivery and you or the intended recipient are not available for your confirmed delivery time our team will contact you on the number provided to discuss your options. With your permission we will leave the balloons at the location unattended but you waive your right to refund eligibility if any damages occur. If the delivery location does not offer an area to leave the balloons our team will make a second delivery attempt (based on availability).


After these attempts a new delivery will require a new delivery fee and or completely new order.  


If you have scheduled a delivery with set up our team will allow a 15 minute grace period for you to arrive. After 15 minutes your set up will be cancelled and the set up is non-refundable.
