Do you deliver balloons?
Yes we do. Delivery is only available if you are located in our balloon delivery areas. Prices vary depending on your location, the day of the week & time required. Please contact us with the suburb, function date & start time and access times to your venue, for an accurate quote and availability.
Can you deliver our balloons with our party hire?
Yes, most definitely. The advantage of shopping with us is that you can have everything delivered together. We are your “One Stop Shop”
How to transport balloons
Always place the balloons in the back seat of your car. We do not recommend placing the balloons in the passenger seat as this can interfere with your driving. If you are driving a sedan, we also don't recommend placing the balloons in the trunk as the heat from the trunk may cause them to burst.
How long will my balloons stay afloat?
We will always ask what day/ time your function starts and how long you’d like the balloons to last. This allows us to recommend a suitable design.
Our standard 28cm latex balloons float for approximately 12- 15 hours. We can also add a treatment to these to extend their life to approximately 2-3 days. Our foil and bubble balloons can float for 2-3 weeks and foils can be refilled.
Weather and temperature are also an important factor. Balloons are adversely affected by heat, wind and sun, so keep them in a cool, dark place until needed. Whether the balloon is indoors or outdoors will also impact the time the balloon stays afloat.
What quality are your balloons?
As industry professionals we only use the highest quality balloon products in the world (Qualatex & Anagram).
We believe it’s important that our balloons last the full life of your party, look amazing and do what they are supposed to do. Their colours are 100% consistent through all batches.
What are balloons made from?
Our latex balloons are made from the highest quality 100% latex. For more information about the biodegradability of our balloons please visit https://www.peba.com.au/balloons-and-the-environment
Our foil balloons are made from mylar.
Sadly, in Australia there are many cheaper products available however they don’t stay consistent colours and shape and they don’t last. To us, it’s not worth the risk.
Balloon Float Times
We love our balloons and hope you do too!
The Australian sun is something special and balloons aren't particularly fond of it's rays. When the weather heats up, special care must be made to protect your balloon.
A bit of Science:
As helium molecules heat they start moving and expanding, this movement puts pressure on a latex balloon and can cause it to expand and pop. On a hot day this movement will also speed up the float time of your balloon and significantly reduce it from 8-12hrs to 3-4hrs (for standard size balloons).
Balloon Float Times:
On average, our balloons float for the following amount of time. We do not guarantee this as a number of factors can reduce this number.
Standard Size 28cm: 8-12hrs46cm: up to 24hrs60cm: up to 48hrs 90cm: up to 3 daysMylar/Foils: 3-5 days and up to 2 weeks
Adding hi-float to your balloons can increase float time by up to 2 to 3x.
We recommend picking up/inflating your balloons as close your event date & time as possible.
Balloons and Cars
It is very important to get your balloons home or to your event as soon as possible. Balloons can pop when exposed to hot metal objects such as awnings, the outside of the car or seatbelt parts. We recommend turning on air conditioning to allow for the temperature of the car to come down before placing balloons into the car. Do not leave car unattended while it’s turned on. If air conditioning is not available, you may want to open your doors and allow the car to ‘air out’ for a few minutes. Traveling with your windows “partially” down so there is a cross breeze can be helpful. Balloons may escape if the window/s are opened too far. NOTE: Helium expands in the heat. Warm or hot temperatures can bring balloons down faster than their proper float time and may result in popping.
DO NOT TO PUT BALLOONS INTO A HOT CAR OR LEAVE BALLOONS IN A HOT PARKED CAR.
Other Important Factors
Balloons and the Wind
Wind is another weather factor to look out for. Make sure your balloon is secured in your hands (we even suggest hugging those jumbo balloons) as they are being placed in a car. Yanking a balloon into the car in the opposite direction of the wind can cause your balloon to pop or tear due to the force. If you are concerned we are happy to carry the balloon to the car for you.
What to Look for with Ceilings
It is very rare to find an actual flat ceiling. Certain materials (such as stucco, sound board, rough ceiling, cedar, sprinkler nozzles halogen lighting, etc.) may cause balloons to pop. Regular light bulbs may not pop balloons. If you are not sure if your balloons will pop on your ceiling, get a sample balloon and let it go to the ceiling several times in several spots. This will help alleviate wasted time and money guessing if the effect will work.
Bags should be used for transport only and balloons should be in the bag for no longer than an hour or so. Extended periods of time in bags can reduce the balloon float time.
It is possible to re-use most foil balloons but we cannot guarantee that it will work every time as they are fairly delicate but it is worth a try. Expel the air from your balloon by inserting a long straw quite a distance into the self sealing valve, the air will then start to come out and you can flatten and fold your balloon.
As latex balloons are biodegradable, it is normal that they (all colors and clear) oxidize and become cloudy over time as they degrade. Heat, sun and high humidity can accelerate this process. Latex balloons are not reusable. We prohibit the release of balloons into the air. Please recycle.
Typically a standard 11” latex balloon will last 10-12 hours depending on heat and humidity. Treated with “Hi Float*” these balloons will last 2-3 days. Exposure to warm temperatures can reduce the float time. Foil balloons generally last a week and sometimes more. Unlike latex balloons, mylar balloons hate the cold. If you have a mylar in air conditioning or a cold place, for a period of time, it WILL slowly deflate on you.
* Hi-Float is safe, nontoxic, water soluble and biodegradable used to extend the float time of latex balloons.
Heat and sunlight act like kryptonite to balloons. Storing your balloons in a cool place can do wonders for making them last much longer than they would otherwise. For foil balloons, try to maintain a consistent temperature so they won’t be shocked and damaged by the fluctuations.
If you are throwing an all-day outdoor party or weekend event, you will want to take extra precautions to preserve your balloons. Helium molecules expand when exposed to heat, and this continual increase of heat and pressure from the molecules moving about may lead to noisy and disruptive balloon popping. You may be tempted to throw some water on them to cool them off, but that can actually cause them to stick together and pop as well. Instead, stick with light coloured balloons since they won’t heat up as fast as their dark counterparts would. Also, bring them indoors at the end of the day so they are not left out all night. As the temperature drops, the balloons will shrink and when they become enlarged the next morning it may lead to popping.
If you live with pets, store your balloons in a room that they cannot access. When your puppy pals and feline friends are left to their own devices, they will have a ball playing with the strings and potentially puncturing the balloon itself. Keep balloons away to help you furry friends’ safety too, since they could get caught in the strings or ingest the popped balloon. Same for young children: Keep them away from balloons and strings too.
Inflating Balloons Purchased Somewhere Else
We do not guarantee balloons not purchased from us and if they are defective or burst during or after inflation, you will still be charged the full amount for inflating that balloon. We can not speak to the quality of balloons purchased from outside suppliers and can not speculate as to how long they will float. We refuse the right to refuse this service.
If Nothing Else
Do not breathe helium from a balloon. Helium is not toxic, nor flammable, but breathing it can result in asphyxiation (loss of consciousness due to insufficient oxygen). Do not release foil balloons outdoors. Power failures can result if these balloons become entangled in electric lines. Popped latex balloons present a choking hazard for small children. Do not leave small children unaccompanied with balloons.
NO CHILD SHOULD BE LEFT ALONE WITH LATEX BALLOONS. HELIUM REPLACES THE OXYGEN IN YOUR LUNGS AND CAN CAUSE A PERSON TO FAINT, AND IN SMALL CHILDREN, CAN CAUSE SUFFOCATION.
DO NOT INHALE/SUCK HELIUM! IT CAN CAUSE DEATH!! The gas used to float balloons is called “Helium”. Helium itself is non-toxic and non-flammable and therefore quite harmless. However, helium should not be inhaled. The party trick of inhaling a balloon full of helium to change your voice is dangerous and must be discouraged at all times. When you inhale/suck on a balloon with helium it displaces a persons supply of oxygen in the blood stream and may cause dizziness, unconsciousness and possibly death especially if you are asthmatic.
DO NOT release foil balloons outdoors as they are constructed of electricity conductive material (foil) which can become entangled in electric lines causing power outages and damage.
DISCARD broken, uninflated balloons as they can be a choking hazard to children.
