Shipping, Billing & Returns Policy
Please see the "Shipping" tab on the individual product page for current shipping pricing for that product.
We guarantee delivery to the addresses you provide, as long as it complies with our shipping policies and is an accurate address. Before you order, please verify the addresses and the availability of your recipient. If we encounter an error such as an incorrect address, failed delivery attempt or weather delays, we will be unable to guarantee a specific delivery date. If you have questions, please call us at (800) 387-3100.
Delivery to Hospitals, Hotels and College Campuses
Due to delivery complications, we do not recommend sending gifts to hospitals, hotels or college campuses. If you decide to send a gift to one of these locations, please call them and find out the following information:
- What is their policy on accepting packages? Some locations do not accept packages or have special guidelines.
- How are the packages received? Many locations have a central receiving department where packages are delivered. Due to privacy and security policies, they may not allow delivery to specific rooms.
- We cannot guarantee that packages will be delivered to recipients at hospitals, hotels and college campuses. We are not responsible for gifts that are lost on-site or for gifts that arrive after a patient/guest has checked out.
In some cases, UPS expedites deliveries, so your gift will arrive on or before the specified delivery date. If you would like to choose a specific delivery date, please choose overnight shipping or 2-day shipping. We are unable to honor requests for specific arrival dates for Monthly Fruit Club gifts because the harvest schedule determines the shipping schedule.
If your gift requires a change in address by the shipping carrier, please call us immediately. If your gift is already with UPS, you will be charged a $15 re-routing fee.
While we do not require delivery signatures, our shipping carriers may require signatures for certain types of deliveries, including those to apartments or offices.
Failed Delivery Attempts
If a signature is required by an office, apartment building or other address, UPS will attempt to deliver up to three times. After the third attempt, the gift will be returned to The Fruit Company. Failed delivery attempts do not qualify for replacements or refunds. If your gift does not arrive as expected, please call customer service at 800-387-3100.
We have items that can be added on during the purchase of certain gifts. These include: chocolate-covered pears, chocolate-covered cherries or blueberries, Award-Winning fresh cheeses, premium cider, seasonal shortbread cookies, special occasion ribbons, and our beautiful watercolor boxes designed by a local Oregon artist. Be sure to check the add-on box on the product page to see what add-ons we offer for that gift!

Please allow three additional days for standard shipping to Alaska and Hawaii. There will be an additional shipping fee of $9.95 to deliver to Alaska or Hawaii.
Due to agricultural restrictions, citrus cannot be shipped to Arizona and pineapple cannot be shipped to Hawaii.
Delivery Outside the United States
We are unable to ship outside the United States.
We are unable to ship to P.O. Boxes.
We are unable to ship to APO/FPO addresses.
The Fruit Company products (fruit baskets, fruit gift towers and boxes, cheese, meat, nuts, dried fruit, chocolate dipped fruit, and desserts) are perishable and cannot be returned. These products are covered by our Satisfaction Guarantee and will be replaced if they arrive damaged.
We make every effort to ensure that the fruit and gourmet food items we feature on our site are in season and available. In some areas with a shorter growing season, this is not possible. For optimal freshness and quality, or due to seasonality, The Fruit Company reserves the right to substitute certain items of equal or higher value and appearance. Our customer service department will contact you if a major substitution is necessary.
Billing Payment Terms and Conditions
We accept VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express credit cards as forms of payment. We bill for the entire order at the time of purchase.
