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 meters 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 £75 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 £75 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.

About your order
We provide information about our products on our website and the mechanism by which you can order them. Your order will only have been accepted when we confirm it by email. An exception to this is if you cancel the order as per our Terms and Conditions, we later cancel it as per our Terms and Conditions, or we don’t accept your order. Just one special offer can be applied to each shopping bag, unless we state otherwise.
We reserve the right not to accept or to cancel your order in any of these scenarios: the item isn’t available any longer; we don’t deliver to your address; we can’t process your payment, or a bank or merchant service provider cancels payment afterwards; payment has been made fraudulently or illegally; or we’ve made a mistake with pricing or the product description.
If your payment has been partly received or received in its entirety for an order which is then cancelled, we’ll refund you in full via the same method of payment.
