What is your delivery area?
We are located in Bradenton, FL and service all of Manatee County and northern Sarasota. We do not service the Venice or North Port area.   * If the delivery address is located in Sarasota please contact us to verify that we service that area and get an exact price quote.

Do I need to make a reservation?
To ensure the yard display of your choice we ask for notice a week in advance. However, we can provide next day service depending on availability. Please call to inquire.

Does someone have to be home during delivery or pick up?
No one has to be home during delivery or pick up of our display. That’s the beauty of our business…we work our magic and the honoree gets to enjoy their special day!

When do you deliver/pick up?
We deliver 7 days a week and you can call any day during the hours of 9am to 9pm. If we are working on a delivery, you may get our voice mail. Please leave a message about your celebration needs and we will return your call as soon as possible.

YARD DISPLAY RENTALS: We deliver the flock the night before and pick up the following evening around sunset, or the next day, depending on the installer’s schedule.

STORK  RENTALS: We can deliver the rental before mother and baby arrive from the hospital for a surprise and pick up on the 5th day near sunset, or the next afternoon, depending on the installer’s schedule.

NOTE: Please call to make arrangements if you need a day time delivery. We will do our best to accommodate your  special request of delivery time.

What if I want to move the critters?
Please do not attempt to move the sign or “critters.” If you would like them moved to a different location in your yard, please call and we will be happy to assist you. A delivery fee may apply for each time that we have to come out and move the sign or “critters.”  If you have special instructions on where to place the display, please notify us when you are making the reservation.

Can I mow and water my lawn?

YARD DISPLAY RENTALS: Watering is fine, please do not try to mow around the display, or take it down for mowing. If you wish to have the display removed before the rental time is up, please call and we will be happy to come and remove it for you.

STORK RENTALS: If you must trim your yard during your rental period, please be careful around the display. If at all possible, please let the trimming around the display go until it has been removed. We do understand that this is not always feasible but we do sincerely appreciate you taking precautions to protect our signs and “critters.” Watering is fine, our “critters” and signs are sealed to protect them from water damage.

What if the critters become damaged?
Our “critters” and signs have been successfully tested in wind and rain and have proven very durable. If however, you notice any damage as a result of severe weather, please notify us immediately.
Our signs are not designed to withstand climbing by children. Please, for your child(ren)’s safety, do not allow them to play on or near the sign or “critters.”
If any vandalism or theft occurs, please contact us immediately.
