No. We offer full service, instore inflation. People have died from helium inhalation. We take this responsibility pretty seriously. Plus, we've been trained to produce beautiful work for you, saving you time & hassle.
Foil balloons generally remain taut & fully inflated for 5 - 7 days, bubbles for 2-4 weeks & we apply a special coating inside latex balloons in bouquets which extends their float time to approx. 2-3 days (from the standard 18 - 24 hours), so collecting a day before your event is no problem.
Most people can fit at least 50-60 x standard 28cm balloons in an empty vehicle. We pack all balloons into transport bags for you. Try & clear out space & bring as few passengers as possible with you for pick-up (preferably none)...
Yes, however we will not be liable for their quality & any poppage on inflation must be paid for. We have a HUGE range instore - why would you buy anywhere else?
Here's a general rule of thumb:
- It takes x 9 standard 28cm balloons to completely fill a square metre
- For medium density, opt for x6 balloons per square metre
- For sparse, opt for x3 balloons per square metre
- So all you need to do is multiple the length x width of the space you wish to cover, then multiply by 9, 6 or 3
- Eg a standard 5 x 4m living area = 20 square metres. Full density is 20x9=180 balloons; medium is 20x6 = 120 balloons, & sparse is 20x3 = 60 balloons.
Now you know!
That's a hard NO.
Releasing any type of lantern or balloon product into the air is littering, plain & simple. Latex balloons are a natural product, not plastic & they will compost eventually however this takes time. There are so many ways to enjoy balloons that are environmentally responsible. We are a member of PEBA - the Pro Environment Balloon Alliance. We will not supply helium balloons for balloon releases. Ever. Nor will any other professional, responsible, ethical balloon business.
