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. 

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.

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.

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 - I’m very pleased with the Catherine low divan, in Gouche fabric, colour ‘Smoke’. Very stylish, and well made. The Classic 1000 pocket sprung mattress is beautifully finished, and in an Egyptian cotton fabric which was important to me. Medium firm and very comfortable. The substantial metal clips on the underside, mentioned in another review, slot over the 2 divan parts to hold them together. It’s a simple method, rather than screws which can work loose with use. With a mattress on top I’m sure the divan sections will stay together. Very pleased with the quality, and workmanship of this product. British Beds Direct were easily contactable, and very helpful with speedily sending out fabric samples, the ordering process was simple, despatched within the expected timeframe, and the courier delivery company was on time, courteous, helpful and very efficient. Very happy with my experience. I would definitely recommend them.

  • Tell us about your experience - Great bed that feels strong and sturdy for a hybrid foam mattress, but also looks really great and stylish. Other low/shallow divans from the high street would set you back ~£800 minimum so this is a great saving. Also when compared to other online companies I was looking at. BBD sent the samples really quickly, were of a high quality and had great customer service, replying with helpful videos, calling me after delivery etc. Only things I would say could be improved are the bed clips - mine seem to not want to stay on! So maybe moving to plastic would help - and delivery was ‘all right on the night’, but was confusing with arrangements between BBD and the courier service. But all in all super happy with the bed, speed it came, quality/choice of fabric and the support.

  • Tell us about your experience - Cannot praise this company enough. My elderly mum is in hospital after a very bad fall and in order for her to come home she needed a lower divan bed. I contacted 4 companies including one local to explain the situation and this was the only one who offered help to push through the order quickly as possible. The salesman was really helpful and kept to his promise so the bed was delivered in just over a week. It is very good quality, well packaged and very great value for money. The courier company were very good also. Will definitely recommend this company and mum now able to come home! A big Thank you to all the team.
