Every order you place with us will be delivered direct to your front door, normally free of extra charges, unless you live in one of the post code areas which carry a Courier surcharge, (as indicated on our Map and Delivery terms and conditions). We work in partnership with a national delivery company to ensure that your goods are delivered in pristine condition. Deliveries are made on working days and we do our best to deliver your items to you within 2 - 7 working days, Monday to Friday between 7.00 am to 8.00 pm (excluding bank holidays). Deliveries to certain areas of Scotland, typically take an extra 2 - 3 working days. You will be notified by email and in some cases by text or phone with regards to your delivery details.
We deliver all items at the same time, if you order more than one item, we will only delivery your items when all items have reached our dispatch warehouse. For Example: - If you order a item that states Next Day delivery with an item that does not state a delivery time, your whole order will be sent out within 5/10 working days (excluding bank holidays). This would also be the same if you order an item that states next day delivery with an item that states 6 week delivery.
We are unable to deliver to the following areas: - Channel Islands, Northern Ireland, Eire, Isle of Man, Isles of Scilly, Isle of Wight, BFPO (British Forces Post Office) addresses, Orkney, Shetland and the Scottish Isles
If you are not in on the arranged day of the delivery, the courier will leave a card with a contact number for you to call to arrange a new delivery date. Where a delivery date has been agreed but you are not present to receive the delivery, we reserve the right to charge a minimum of £45 to cover part of the cost of the failed delivery and re-delivery. Please make sure you are able to take delivery on the day you have arranged to avoid any unnecessary delays or charges. If you need to cancel/re-arrange a delivery date, please do this by contacting us at least 48 business hours (working days) in advance of the scheduled delivery date to avoid any charges. We are unable to re-arrange deliveries within 48 hours of the scheduled delivery time.
Generally, where an order contains more than one item, all items will be delivered at the same time once all items are available.
Goods will be deemed to have been delivered once delivered to the specified address and Bedz4u will not be liable to the customer for non-delivery of the Products. Bedz4u does not need to satisfy itself that the person accepting delivery at the specified address is the customer (or authorized by the customer to accept delivery of the Goods). The Buyer is recommended to take receipt of the delivery personally.
Dates and times quoted for delivery are approximate only. Bedz4u shall not be liable for any direct, indirect or consequential loss, costs, damages, charges or expenses caused directly or indirectly by any delay in the delivery of the Goods.
If the Products ordered by the customer are not available or discontinued and Bedz4u is unable to deliver them to the Buyer within 30 days (or any other time limit agreed by the both Bedz4u and the customer), Bedz4u shall inform the customer of this; cancel the Contract; and reimburse any sums paid by the customer (or which has been paid on the customer's behalf) under the Contract to the person by whom payment was made no later than 30 days after the due date for delivery of the Goods under the Contract.

Please understand that the logistics companies that offer the service are not insured to enter private premises. Please be aware that if you purchase a product and require assistance with the positioning of the product, you must arrange for the assistance yourself.
Before you sign for the item(s)
1) For insurance purposes, it is very important that before you sign for your items, you check all external packaging for signs of damage. Signing for the items without any extra notes will mean you have accepted the goods "in good order". Transport damages cannot be claimed at a later date if the delivery was signed for "as been in good order".
2) If any external damage is found to the packaging, please ensure you write DAMAGED, then your SIGNATURE within the BOX on the POD Signature Machine or the Couriers paper work.
If you choose to REFUSE DELIVERY because of any damage, please write down the reason why and sign your SIGNATURE within the BOX on the POD Signature Machine or the Couriers paper work.
3) You must count the number of items that you are signing for. If any items are missing, sign for them as MISSING, accept all offered items and please call us immediately (or at the maximum, 24 hours after delivery) on 01274 317167. We will then sort out replacing any missing items.
4) Please do not sign for your items as 'UNCHECKED' as this no longer covers you as the customer for the insurance of the items.
5) Claims for Courier damages cannot be claimed for once 5 days have passed, since the delivery was signed for!
8. Acceptance of the Product(s)
Other than where the customer acts as a Consumer, the customer shall be deemed to have accepted the products 5 working days after delivery to the customer.
After acceptance the customer shall not be entitled to reject products which are not in accordance with the Contract.
Signing for the items without any extra notes will mean you have accepted the goods 'in good order'. Transport damages cannot be claimed at a later date if the delivery was signed for "in good order". WE ARE UNABLE TO REPLACE DAMAGED GOODS THAT HAVE BEEN SIGNED FOR 'IN GOOD ORDER'.
The customer shall be bound to accept the products when they are tendered for delivery by Bedz4u or its business associates and delivery shall be deemed to take place when the products are tendered for delivery to the customer at the nominated address for delivery whereupon the risk of loss, breakage or any other damage whatsoever shall pass to the customer.
Damage in transit:
If any damage is found, please ensure you write DAMAGED then your SIGNATURE within the BOX on the POD Signature Machine or the Couriers paper work.
If you choose to REFUSE DELIVERY because of any damage, please write down the reason why and sign your SIGNATURE within the BOX on the POD Signature Machine or the Couriers paper work. It will be your responsibility to inform us within 24 hours from delivery.
It is the customers responsibility to sign for the correct number of packages as shown on the carrier's delivery consignment note. Any shortages must be noted on the consignment note and it will be your responsibility to notify Bedz4u within 24 hours of delivery.
The customer must notify Bedz4u of any goods supplied incorrectly within 48 hours of delivery. The goods must not be used and repackaged in the original packaging to protect them from damage. Bedz4u will arrange for collection of the goods and a replacement will be sent. Alternatively we may request that you return small items back to us by post and we will refund your postage costs. Replacement goods will be dispatched upon return and inspection of the original goods.
9. Risk and title
As soon as we have delivered the goods to your door you will be responsible for them. We will only deliver goods to the address on the order and goods will not be left without a signature. From the time of receipted delivery of the goods, any loss or damage to the goods shall be at your own risk. Any transit damage to the goods or any package number shortages must be noted on the delivery consignment note at the time of delivery.
Risk of damage to or loss of the Products shall pass to the customer upon delivery. If the customer wrongfully fails to take delivery of the Products, then risk of the Products shall pass to the customer at the time when Bedz4u tendered delivery of the Products.
Notwithstanding any other provision herein title to the Products shall not pass to the customer until the Bedz4u has received in cash or cleared funds payment in full for the Products and all other sums which are or which become due to Bedz4u from the customer on any account.
Bedz4u shall be entitled to recover payment for the Products notwithstanding that ownership of any of the Products has not passed from Bedz4u.
The customer may not use or resell the Products before ownership has passed.
The customer grants Bedz4u the license at any time to enter any premises where the Products are or may be stored in order to inspect them, or where right to possession has terminated, to recover them, and to use reasonable force in doing so.
If the customer receives goods but then requires an immediate exchange of the product for whatever reason, the customer is responsible for the goods until such time the goods are replaced. Unless specifically specified by Bedz4u, the customer shall not use the product. This is also the case for mattresses and pillows. Due to hygiene restrictions we are unable to exchange mattresses and pillows that have been slept on or used, even if a replacement has been arranged (unless this is due to a manufacture fault). Under these circumstances, the customer is liable for the cost of the replacement mattress and/or pillows and their delivery. The customer is advised to retain all original packaging for at least 7 days. If any products need to be returned to Bedz4u, for whatever reason, this must be in the original packaging. Bedz4u reserves the right to charge for extra transport packaging where the original packaging has been discarded. The cost of this will be determined by the amount of repackaging material used to make transportation of the goods safe.
