When Miami weather says “wait a minute…”

We know Florida weather can and will be crazy unpredictable.

-If the forecast app shows a 50% chance of rain/bad weather, client has up to 48 hours prior to their picnic date and time to decide whether to opt for an indoor setting or to reschedule it for a further date (subject to availability).

-If you are confident taking the risk to proceed with your scheduled picnic despite the weather forecast, we ask that you sign a waiver stating you acknowledge the chance of rain and accept that Galpon Picnics does not offer any refunds past the setup of your picnic as booked.

– The client has up to 90 days reschedule/alter their picnic details, given they are equal or higher value.

– Once the Picnic team has set up the picnic as booked, refunds will not be taken into consideration.

What if I’m late?

We appreciate punctuality, but we know things can happen and guests could be late. Please be advised that we hold a grace period of 15 minutes. Every minute past our grace period will be billed at $1 per minute until the first guest arrives.

Please consider extra time for your commute for beach locations on weekends, since eastbound traffic and parking will add time to your trip.

Kindly note that the agreed time for the picnic starts at the original time that it was booked, whether guests are on time or not. See you there!

What is your cancellation policy?

-We require a 50% non-refundable retainer for all bookings.
-If booking is cancelled 2 (two) or more weeks before the event date, we will make a refund of any booking fees paid, minus the 50% deposit paid.
-Bookings cancelled within the 2 (two) weeks of the event date will forfeit 100% of the total booking.

What if I am not in Miami-Dade or Broward?

  • The prices displayed on our websites and social platforms reflect those for most Miami-Dade and Broward areas. All events and set-ups taking place between Broward and city of West Palm Beach limits, or any address in SW Miami-Dade will incur a $75 additional fee above the posted price. For Picnics beyond city of West Palm Beach, please contact us.

What if I need to leave the picnic earlier than expected?

We could adjust to an earlier pick-up, provided we receive a call or SMS from you with 25-30 minutes in advance. Please note the picnic items will be your responsibility until we pick them up.

What if I break something?

First of all, don’t panic, as things happen!

Should any damage to, or loss of any picnic property happen, it must be reported to us as soon as it happens, via phone or text. In the case items are found to be damaged or lost by Galpon Picnics crew after the event pickup, it will be properly documented with pictures and sent to you (client). Client is fully responsible for replacement/repair cost(s) of the picnic rental items that incurred damaged or were lost.
