Tips for Buying Beds Online
First, note down a list of your needs, your budget, size, mattress type and features.
Ask family and friends for recommendations or your social media groups.
Do they have a genuine office or showroom address? Do they have an STD code (O800 or 0345 number) or is it a mobile or starts with O2O3? Ring the number if in doubt.
Avoid online/social media marketplaces where traceability is next to zero
Check independent reviews and do not rely on reviews posted on the site.
Be wary of discounts claiming to be up to 70 or 80 percent off RRPs and time limited offers that pressure you into ordering now.
Is the delivery free or charged and other conditions?
Is the delivery made to the room of your choice or just to your door?
Do they take your existing mattress away for free or do they charge?
