Key Takeaways

  • DoorDash offers flower delivery from local and national florists with options for same-day delivery.
  • There are no extra charges for bringing luggage on a Lyft, but driver discretion applies.
  • Customers should communicate with drivers about luggage size to ensure vehicle space is adequate.
  • For larger luggage needs, Lyft XL or Lux XL services provide more space for bags.

Does DoorDash Deliver Flowers?

Yes, DoorDash provides flower delivery services. They collaborate with both local and national florists to offer an extensive selection of floral arrangements. In some cases, customers can even opt for same-day delivery.

The process of ordering flowers is conveniently managed through the DoorDash app, mirroring the familiar experience of ordering food.

How Much Does It Cost to Deliver Flowers on DoorDash?

It depends! Some florists will charge extra fees of around $5 to $10 for smaller orders but waive this for larger orders. Many national florists will waive a fee regardless of the order. If it’s your first order, you may qualify for free shipping with many of the floral shops.

Brett’s Take: Thoughts From an Expert

If you’re a customer ordering flowers, make sure to tip your driver.

Delivery drivers take great care to get your flowers to their destination. I have found that flowers are actually pretty hard to transport, and there’s a lot that can go wrong when doing so.

These extra steps are much more than they have to do when delivering food, so make sure to throw them $5-10 extra for the tip. They’ll definitely appreciate it.

If you’re a driver, I suggest preparing ahead of time if you accept a delivery order that includes flowers.

I like to bring a box to put the flowers in, and then wrap a blanket or pillow around them to make sure they don’t tip over while I am taking turns or changing speed.

Also, don’t forget to get a signature and receipt so that you can return the flowers to the florist in the case that you can’t deliver them.

How Does Flower Delivery on DoorDash Work?

If you’ve ever ordered food on the DoorDash app, it’s the same process. All you need to do is enter the app, find a flower shop, and place your order.

Then the flower shop will get notified of the order, fulfill it, and have a DoorDash driver pick it up. The flowers will be dropped off wherever you need them in no time.

Local vs. National Delivery

Depending on your location, there will be both local and national options. DoorDash works with smaller, local florists to support independent flower shops. It also partners with larger national floral companies to service a greater range of areas.

The type of shop will be clearly marked in the app when you’re browsing. Most of the national options offer free shipping deals, but be aware that some of the local florists charge more for shipping.

Scheduling Ahead of Time

Only a few florists will do same-day delivery, so it’s better to schedule a few days in advance if you can. You can easily do this in the app by changing the delivery date when you order.

Types of Flowers

By partnering with a range of florists, DoorDash offers many types of flowers and floral arrangements, from a simple $10 batch of tulips to massive bouquets of hundreds of roses.

7 Steps to Get Flower Delivery on DoorDash

Florists will create beautiful flower arrangements for your special occasion. Get them dropped off anywhere you need by following these steps.

Step 1: Select the Recipient’s Location on DoorDash

The app must know the location of the area where you plan to send flowers to pair you with the right vendors. You’ll need to use the recipient’s location if it’s separate from where you live. Put this in at the top of the screen when you first open the app.

Step 2: Go to the Flowers Tile on the Home Screen

Browse options for flower delivery by pressing the flower tile on your DoorDash home screen. It’ll be at the top after you scroll past categories like grocery or alcohol.

Step 3: Explore Your Options

You should see the available florists in your area on this page. Browse each of them for the flowers/floral arrangements they offer, their prices, and the delivery fees until you find what you like.

The store will provide additional information, such as its open hours, availability to schedule, the delivery fee, distance from your location, and when it can deliver. You’ll want to ensure you select an option that will be open when you need the flowers delivered.

Step 4: Add Items to Your Order

Select the quantity of the flowers you need. Be cautious about what you’re ordering, as some may be single flowers, while others may be bouquets.

There will be an option to add special instructions if you need to. This would be a good place to add a personalized message.

Some shops may have the option in the app for designed cards to choose from. If they don’t, you may ask in the special instructions box. Provide your number in case there are questions or concerns with what you ask for.

If you’re sending the flowers to someone else, you’ll want to add the recipient’s phone number at this point. This ensures that your driver won’t run into problems finding the person or place they need to drop them off.

Step 5: Checkout Your Cart

Once you’ve added all the items that you’re hoping to buy, you’ll need to go into your cart to finish the order.

Review your order to ensure you’ve added all the flowers you need. Press “Continue” when you’re ready to finish the transaction and add your payment information.

Step 6: Pay

You’ll now pay to finalize the order. You can choose to pay via bank card, Venmo, PayPal, or Cash App. The DoorDash app will redirect you to the appropriate payment site to finish the transaction.

This will bring you to another app or a webpage and require you to log in to the necessary account if you’re using a method other than a bank card.

Step 7: Check on the Order

If you want to check on your order, go to the Order tab on the app. There, you’ll see the status of your order, whether it’s still being prepared or already out for delivery.

The app should send you a notification once the flowers are picked up by the driver and dropped at their intended delivery location.

Remember that it’s best to make the job as easy as possible for the driver. Try to be available during this time in case they may need to call you if they can’t find the location.

If you need to change or cancel the order, keep in mind that cancellation fees will vary. If you cancel within an hour of pickup, you’ll be charged a small fee.

Alternative Ways to Order Flowers Online

If DoorDash doesn’t work for you, consider these other ways to ensure you still get those flowers sent:

  • Local Florists: Reach out to florists in the area and ask them directly if they do delivery. Many of them will have their own service and may prefer if you use that instead of DoorDash, providing possible discounts.
  • National Florists: National companies will ship directly to most places in the U.S. You can check out sites like Teleflora or FTD to browse other options.
  • Grocery Stores: Many grocery stores have floral sections. You may look online or call the closest one to your destination and ask if they’ll prepare and drop off the flowers you’d like.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Send Flowers to Someone Else Using DoorDash?

Yes! It’s easy to send flowers to someone else on DoorDash.

All you need to do is change the address they’ll be sent to. You can do this in the app before you begin browsing to ensure the flowers you want to buy can be shipped to their location.

Where Does DoorDash Deliver Flowers?

9,500 local and national florists work on fulfilling on-demand delivery for flowers. The national options make it available almost anywhere in the U.S.

Wrapping Up

Flowers are the ideal gift to make someone feel special and brighten their day. With DoorDash’s delivery service, you can find the perfect floral arrangement and send it off to your loved ones within a short time.
