Customer Service

Q: How do I purchase products on your Web Site?
A: To enable Picnic-Basket.com to provide the best customer service possible we ask all of our customers to register with our website before placing an order. By registering with our website we can easily assist our customers with deliveries, returns, refunds, exchanges, product warranties as-well-as being able to notify you of special customer only sales or other promotions. You can register on our website without making a purchase, just go here.
Q: Can I modify my order once it's placed?
A: That depends. If your order has not already shipped then it can be modified. Please call: (800) 861-8823 and give the customer service representative your information. We will then contact our warehouse to see if your item(s) have shipped. If they have not then we will be happy to modify your order.

Q: Do you offer a guarantee?
A: Yes we do. As a business we want our customers to be pleased with everything purchased from us and to that end we offer this guarantee:

Picnic-Basket.com's 100% satisfaction guarantee.
Picnic-Basket.com wants and expects you to be happy with every purchase that you make. Because we carry unique picnicking and wine enthusiast products that you can't find at your local department store or mall, we understand that for most, you are purchasing an item from us without getting to see it first. From just looking at a photograph and/or from reading a product's description we understand that sometimes, when the item arrives it is not at all like what you were thinking and you want to return it. We understand, that's ok, we'll take it back.

If, within the first 30 days of your purchase you are not completely satisfied with your order then return it for full refund. Item must be in original condition, unused, and in the original packaging. We're sorry but shipping charges are non-refundable and the customer is responsible for return shipping fees. Sorry, no returns are accepted after 30 days.
Q: How can I find out about new products and specials?
A: Sign up for our newsletter which is sent out when we get new products or have a special.

Q: Where do I look up my order history?
A: To check your order history, log in to Your Account.

Q: What if I don't remember my username and/or password?
A: Go to the Login section of Picnic-Basket.com and click on “Forgot Your Password?” which will prompt you for your e-mail address and it will automatically be sent to you.
Q: What is your product substitution policy?
A: In the rare instance when demand outstrips supply of a particular item, we will replace it with one of equal or greater value at no additional charge. Sometimes there may be slight variations in the napkin or liner fabric.

Q: What are the recommended care instructions?
A: All of our products can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth or sponge. The plates, glasses, flatware and stainless steel barbecue utensils are all top rack dishwasher safe. The napkins, tablecloths and blankets are gently cycle machine washable in cold water and low heat tumble dry. The wood cutting board and wood barbecue utensils should be cleaned in soapy water after each use. Wipe the cutting board, the handles of the cheese knife, corkscrew and BBQ utensils once or twice a year with mineral oil to extend their life and preserve the natural luster of the wood.

Q: Is there plenty of room for food inside the picnic baskets and picnic backpacks?
A: Yes, there is ample room for your food in all of our picnic baskets and picnic backpacks. However; our food and wine baskets are only suitable as a wine and cheese service. Generally, these food and wine baskets do not have ample room for a complete picnic.
Q: How long does the food stay hot/cold?
A: Our Thermoguard insulation keeps your food at the proper temperature for 5-8 hours depending on the outside temperature.

Q: How can I order spare/replacement parts?
A: Contact our customer service and we will be happy to help.

Q: Do you offer gift wrapping?
A: Not at this time.
Q: Can I include a gift card?
A: Not at this time.

Q: Do you have a catalog?
A: Currently we do not. We have plans to have a catalog in 2006.

A: We collect Florida State sales tax on all items purchased that have a Florida delivery address. We do not collect sales tax on the shipping fee you are charged. Sales tax rates in Florida vary based on the city and county of the recipient. The method we found to be most reliable is to collect sales tax based on the recipient's zip code and that is what we do. California tax law states that sales tax must be paid on shipments from California to a California address. Some of our warehouses are located in California so we must collect California sales tax in these instances.
