Throughout history, flowers have been associated with two things: love and secrecy. The ancient Romans painted roses on the ceilings of their banquet halls to remind guests that whatever secrets were shared sub rosa or “under the rose” were meant to be kept confidential. The association between flowers and secrecy was continued in the Middle Ages when a rose would be hung above a meeting table where private matters were discussed.
Today, an anonymous gift of flowers combines love and secrecy in a way that’s guaranteed to delight your recipient. The mystery of receiving a dozen red roses from an anonymous admirer will surely set your gift apart from the rest if it’s your loved ones’ birthday or a holiday where she’ll be receiving many gifts.
One would think that choosing a flower delivery business van would indeed be rather easy. You just need a van with some interior shelving, which was easy to vacuum out at the end of the week. Sure, that's true enough, but there is much more to it than that you see.
For instance, your deliver van in your florist business will need adequate signage so people will see it, and putting signage on a van can be tricky, ask any vinyl sign installer, they will tell you the challenges with bodylines, windows, and disruptions in the contour of the vehicle's body that make the job a nightmare, and the results can often be less than needed.
Your delivery van is a marketing and advertising asset as well as a delivery vehicle, and you need to be thinking here. Remember when you deliver flowers your van will be outside of a home, or business and it really matters. You need a strong brand impression for people to observe and see. And with that point please realize that sometimes it makes sense to buy a used van instead of a new one to insure that you have the best body lines for signage.
In fact, the body shape and design matters more to your business than merely the brand you buy or the actual fuel economy. Because good signage brings in more business by 3-fold, I hope you see that point. Formerly, our company was in the vehicle washing business, and we noted how many vehicle signage configurations were all wrong, and in disarray of a cohesive message.
For instance the windows in back broke up the advertising, which is terrible, because when your delivery van is in heavy traffic losing money, you have a captured audience that could be reading that signage. Not to mention that windows in back allow heat in, and that costs on the refrigeration costs or air-conditioning to keep your perishable product from wilting.
Also, perhaps you should not have side windows either in this same argument. Because a large side surface allows for much bigger and robust signage or even a adverting sign wrap, which is obviously better than just vinyl signs, you see? Bigger than life bright flower arrangements on the side of your van makes people look, and will better imprint your brand on their memory, which is good for your business when they go to buy flowers in the future.
It's not only important for the type of van, fuel economy, but you need to pay the utmost attention to the body lines when choosing a flower delivery van. Please consider all this.
Even if you aren’t including your name on the gift card that comes with your flowers, you should include a heartfelt message explaining why you sent the bouquet. Consider sending a message with a tantalizing hint of your identity, but not enough to reveal who you are. If you want, choose a romantic moment later in the day to tell your loved one that you’re their secret admirer.

Flower Delivery Services - A Lucrative Business
In today's frenetic world, saying it with flowers is no longer a walk in the park. Flower business is tricky with seasons, longevity, time, place, weather and tastes, ruling the terms. Florists are fast becoming important service providers in a mercurial, niche market. If you are tongue-tied by emotion or an occasion, seek a florist well versed in floriography or the language of flowers, to articulate it best. They can brilliantly bouquet your feelings, tag a well-worded enclosure card and deliver with panache. Putting together highly personalized object d'arts, florists cater to individual needs as well as corporate events, private functions, school and college ceremonies or public extravaganzas.
Choosing the right florist can be tough. Check with friends, family, church, local yellow pages, floral guides or website recommendations to select the right person. Whether florists operate from homes, stores, supermarkets, garden supply stores or through on-line brokers, word-of-mouth recommendations are the safest bet. Out-of-city deliveries mean that your florist must be part of a floral wire service or national affiliation that makes for easy networking.
Decide on the budget and then customize the selection. If the basket must be delivered, provide the name, address and contact telephone number, as well as the best time it needs to be dropped off. Give the florist at least a few days' prior notice and remember to sign the personal card that goes with it.
For busy individuals, flower delivery via telephonic orders is an easy option. But spell out choices on color, single type or mixed flower arrangement and offer the same information on the recipient that you would do at the store. Payment can be by any major credit card or through an in-house account.
For big events, flower delivery orders must be placed at least a month in advance to enable the florist schedule order-supply-delivery and set-up time. Especially if it is the holiday season, flower delivery can be fraught with hits and misses. Provide all the information about the location, purpose and scope of the event, so that the final delivery is top notch. And ensure your contract spells it all out, including taboo flowers, second choices, rental, delivery, set-up costs, payment schedule, cancellation or refund clauses.
Let that spontaneous gesture of love and attention be an indelible one-affirm it with flowers and remain a delightful forget-me-not.
