Delivery and Shipping Policies
MV Florist can deliver to any address on the island of Martha's Vineyard. Prices listed on this website do not include Massachusetts sales tax. The fee for deliveries on Martha's Vineyard is $8.00 to Vineyard Haven, $10.00 to Oak Bluffs, West Tisbury and Edgartown and $15.00 to Chilmark and Aquinnah. In the case of orders to be delivered off-Island we normally use USPS domestic shipping, which takes about 2-5 days. For USPS shipping, a $20.00-$30.00 (depending on size and weight of basket) postage fee is normal for 2-3 day delivery with delivery confirmation service, plus $8.00 handling. Express shipping is also available at an extra cost.
Most of our flower and gift basket products can be delivered on Martha's Vineyard the same day. To assure same-day delivery, orders must be received before 12:00 PM, Monday - Friday, and 10:00 AM Saturday. Orders received after that time may be delivered the following business day.
Before major holidays, we recommend that you place your orders at least five days in advance.
Delivery to Hospitals
When placing your order, please be sure to include the name of the recipient and room number or ward of the recipient.
MV Florist will send your gift bouquet in accordance with facility procedures.
Recipient Not Home
If you have specific instructions for the delivery of your gift bouquet, please be sure to tell us when placing your order. In all other cases, if the recipient is not at home when we attempt a delivery we will either:
- Call the recipient to schedule delivery at an appropriate time
- Leave a note on the recipient's door asking them to contact the florist to schedule a delivery time
- Leave the arrangement in a covered, secure area of the home (porch, garage, or other entrance)
- Leave the gift bouquet with a neighbor and place a message on the recipient's door with this information
Occasionally, substitutions of flowers or containers are necessary due to temporary, regional availability issues. If this is the case with the gift you've selected, our experienced florists will ensure that the style, theme and color scheme of your arrangement is preserved and will only substitute items of equal or higher value.
