Delivery

Once you’ve ordered and paid for your items, our customer service team will call you to arrange a convenient date for free delivery.

How long does delivery take?

We do our absolute best to deliver within 10 working days. If you live somewhere remote or difficult to reach, it might take us a bit longer, but we’ll always let you know when you make your order.  

Will you give me an exact delivery time?

We’ll give you a four-hour time slot, usually between 7am and 7pm, Monday to Friday. If it’s outside these times, we will let you know. 

Can you deliver to the room of my choice?

We always have two people to deliver your items, and they’ll always try to bring your items to your preferred room. 

Delivery is taken to your room of choice where there is only one flight of stairs involved. Delivery drivers can use lifts to take it to any floor as long as the lift is working and the product fits into the lift so please ensure the product dimensions will fit in the lift. Where an extra flight of stairs is  required e.g a loft, the delivery driver is not contracted to deliver so please be aware the items will be left after one flight of stairs has been completed.

Where do we deliver?

We deliver to mainland England, Scotland and Wales. Delivery to remote areas may take a little longer. We don’t yet deliver to Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands. 

If you want your items sent further afield, we can deliver to an international shipping depot for onward transport. 

Alternatively you can arrange collection from our workshop. For more info, call 0121 567 3131 or email hello@britishbedsdirect.co.uk

How does Covid-19 affect deliveries?

Our delivery folk comply with the government’s Covid-19 delivery guidelines to keep everyone safe. This means that they follow hand hygiene procedures, they will wear masks in your home, they will keep 2 metres away from any household members and try to avoid exchanging physical documentation where possible.

Because of Covid-19, our normal delivery services can sometimes change. We’ll let you know as soon as possible if this happens.  

Do I have to assemble my product?

We aren’t currently able to offer assembly, but all of our products are easy to put together using basic tools.

Checking your items will fit

Make sure that you’ve measured up your space before you make a purchase so you know it will fit once it’s assembled. Check the exact dimensions of the bed you’re buying – you’ll find them on the product page. Sometimes it helps to use masking tape on the floor to mark out where your bed will go – that way you can tell how much space you’ll have. 

Please measure door frames and stairwells before you make an order to make sure large mattresses and bulky items can be brought through the house. We can’t be responsible for any items that won’t fit. Don’t get rid of your old bed or mattress until you’ve received your new one.

If there is anything you aren’t sure about, give our customer service team a call on 0121 567 3131. 

Accessing your property

If you think our delivery vehicle might have difficulty getting to your house, please let us know when we contact you to arrange delivery – we’ll work with you to try to find a solution. 

You may want to cover your floors before we deliver to your house. It’s a good idea to remove any ornaments or pictures that might get knocked too.

Changing your delivery 

You can change your delivery slot if you need to – just let our customer service team know at least 24 hours before the scheduled delivery. If you need to change your delivery less than 24 hours before your booked slot, there will be a £50 charge.  

To change your delivery slot, contact our customer services team on 0121 567 3131.

What happens when we can’t deliver?

• You will need to be home for us to deliver the items. If you aren’t in when we deliver there will be a £50 re-delivery charge.

• If it’s not safe to deliver to the agreed delivery point, or doing so might damage the item or your property, we will leave your items at the nearest safe place. 

• If we can’t safely deliver to your home at all because of access limitations, there may be a fee of up to 50% for each item purchased. 

• If we can’t deliver because of other circumstance that are beyond our control, like road closures or vehicle breakdown, we’ll get in touch with you to rearrange the delivery.

Returns and refunds

We want you to be delighted by your British Beds Direct purchase. If you aren’t, we’d like to help. 

Changing your order

You can make any changes within 48 hours of placing your order. 

Cancelling your order

You can cancel your order up to 24 hours before your delivery slot, and you’ll be given a complete refund within 14 days. 

Returns after delivery

You can return your bed, mattress or headboard within 14 days after delivery, as long as the item is unused, in its original condition and in its original packaging. A £50 collection fee applies to refunds. This will be deducted from the refund amount.

Exchanging your mattress

Sometimes it takes a bit of time getting used to a new mattress – the lovely squishy fillings will need a chance to settle too. But if your mattress isn’t as comfortable as you’d like after 40 nights, we’ll exchange it for a new one, as long as you’ve used a mattress protector.

  • Tell us about your experience - Having only previously bought beds from John Lewis, I nervously purchased a side lifting bed which I couldn’t find elsewhere with a short leadtime. Quality, price and British made were reasons to purchase and we weren’t disappointed. Arrived promptly with delivery chaps taking all to the relevant room. Billed as a 2 man build, I assembled successfully on my own. Slightly differently to instructions as the gas struts simply clicked on rather than needing bolts. Went for a middle quality mattress for a guest room and it’s very comfortable and of decent quality. Would not hesitate to buy from here again.

  • Tell us about your experience - Really pleased with this order. Always cautious ordering online without seeing the product first. I loved the fact that the beds are manufactured to order in the UK. We ordered free samples initially and ordered the ottoman divan. Customer service is 2nd to none. We had a issue with one part of the order which got damaged in transit. Called customer service who ordered a replacement without question and received a week later. Great bed frame, storage is great and opens/closes nice and smooth. I would definitely recommend the company for the quality backed up by the service and British built. Big thumbs up.
