Special orders may not be cancelled, these are goods ordered/manufactured specifically for the buyer i.e. not held in stock by Beds and Bedrooms.

Due to the intimate nature of Beds, mattresses, sofa beds, divans, headboards, pillows, mattress protectors, duvets etc also flat pack furniture that has been opened, partially or fully assembled, these items are exempt from the statutory 7 day cooling off period under the Distance Selling Regulations when they have been unsealed. Therefore, for reasons of health and hygiene any beds, mattresses or bedding that has been unsealed will be deemed to be used and cannot be returned for any reason other than a manufacturing fault.

The Buyer must retain the Goods and take good care of them until they are collected by Beds and Bedrooms in the original packaging and in the original condition at a time requested by Beds and Bedrooms (this request not to exceed 21 days from the cancellation date).

There is a collection charge which will be the equivalent of the original delivery charge to collect the Goods, the collection charge will be deducted from the refund value. Or the Buyer may return the Goods (at the Buyers cost) unused, to us at Beds and Bedrooms, 21-23 New Road, Chatham, Kent, ME4 4QJ in.the original packaging and in the original condition.

Delivery

All prices on our website are exclusive of delivery charges which will be added to the price of the products. We reserve the right to add any congestion charge. Parking fee, or road toll necessary to effect a delivery to your property.

Delivery will normally take place within the timescale estimated on the order acknowledgement (and in any case within 60 days), however this is only an estimate and time shall not be the essence of any order.

When ordering special orders/items an approximate delivery time scale will be provided, whilst every effort will be made to ensure the estimated dates are met they do not form a fixed term of the contract. Any dates and time we specify for the delivery of the goods are approximate only and we shall not be liable for any losses, costs, charges, damages or expenses caused by any delay for the delivery of the goods. Such delays could be a result of, but not limited to:

  • Holiday periods i.e. Christmas, Easter
  • Inaccessibility i.e. road closures
  • Incorrect details provided by the buyer
  • Unforeseen circumstances such as strikes, fire, flood, vehicle breakdown, delays by suppliers, fuel shortages etc.

Where possible the seller will try to contact the buyer to advise them in advance of such circumstances. It is the responsibility of the buyer to make the seller aware of any access or delivery restrictions at the time of purchase so that reasonable steps can be made in advance of delivery.

Delivery is officially to the front door only but goods may be taken to the room of the choice at the drivers discretion if access is clear.

It is the customers responsibility to ensure the goods can pass through the doorways, hallways and staircases. In the event of restricted access the delivery staff will leave the goods at the nearest convenient point for the customer.

While the utmost care is taken when delivering goods, it is the responsibility of the buyer to make sure walls and flooring etc are adequately protected / covered at the time of delivery. Beds and bedrooms accept no responsibility for damage caused to the buyers property as a result of the goods being delivered.

Most goods will require some form of assembly and it is the buyers responsibility to assemble the goods. The driver cannot offer assistance of assembly/disassembly of any goods without prior arrangement.

Delivery will only be made to the delivery address specified on the original order.

Delivery will be deemed to have taken place when the goods have been delivered to the agreed address (Beds and Bedrooms do not need to satisfy themselves that the person accepting delivery at the agreed address is authorised by the buyer to accept the goods)

If the buyer fails to give adequate delivery instructions and/or inform us that there are errors in the order acknowledgement and/or confirmation relating to the delivery address details. Or that the agreed delivery day is not convenient and as a consequence the buyer fails to take delivery of the goods whenever a delivery is made. Then Beds and Bedroom can arrange a re-delivery. The cost of the re-delivery will be equal to the original delivery charge or a minimum of £24.50.
