International can offer you several advantages. You will notice
the freshness and increased longevity of the products that you
receive from us, since WE DO NOT ROTATE THE PRODUCT. WE HAVE
NO BOX CHARGE , so you will find that our prices are quite competitive
with those of the Miami market. F.I. offers a wide variety of
flowers that are all shipped from our farms in South America
directly to Miami. We clear the flowers through U.S. customs
and plant quarantine and deliver them to a truck or airline
or shipping company of your choice.
direct is that simple! The only thing that you need to do is
change your buying habits a bit, as you will have to place your order about 3 – 4 days before your shipment departs
from Miami. This gives Floral International enough time to order the product from
the farms and make sure that it is shipped on time for you.
new international customers, we require that you prepay your
shipments by sending a wire transfer to our bank account in
the United States. Once payment is confirmed, we will be able
to send you the flowers, not before. As time goes by and we
develop a business relationship, we may extend credit terms to your company,
but in the beginning, prepayment is necessary.
We are an
exclusive WHOLESALE CUT FLOWER DEALER. To order from us you
need to have a TAX ID NUMBER. Moreover, our minimum order is 1 box
of flowers (eg 1 box of Black Magic Roses, 1 box of Freedom
Roses , 1 box of carnations etc.). For shipping, airport-to-airport
to any destination outside the United States, the airlines require
a minimum of 200 lbs per shipment, which is about 12 boxes.
So your minimum order for airport-to-airport shipping is 12
boxes. Within the United States, commercial airlines require
a minimum of 100 lbs per shipment (approximately 6 boxes of
flowers) for airport-to-airport shipping. Anything that falls
under these weight requirements is shipped via FEDEX (for the
United States and other destinations).
Please let us know if you need freight information from Colombia
and Ecuador or if you already have a freight forwarder here
to give you the info.
