Re: Where to buy a bed

The delivery price of £525 seems quite high - I guess that is "outsourced" and they have a management fee added into it, or something.

I always prefer a boxspring base with a good quality spring mattress on top.. whilst it may cost more than some beds, it is an investment in your health and lifestyle, and will probably end up working out to be the same cost as a cheap bed over time (you will likely have to buy 2 or 3 cheap beds in that same period of time)

I ended up purchasing this bed last year http://www.superiorbeds.ch/burgess-natural-bed/ - really pleased with it.. I always thought I liked "hard" beds, but when I got this I changed my ideas. It seems like the bed industry has moved on since I had previously bought a bed!!

I really recommend them, lovely bed and service!

The shipping I believe was around 300£ (don't remember exact amount!), but I essentially got the shipping price back when the UK VAT was refunded after delivery.
Did you get hammered on the tax crossing the border?

Would she even remember what happened four and a half years ago? Why are you necroposting?

I bought a couple of matrasses last year, quite good quality and cheap price, they have often special discounts as well.

Re: Where to buy a bed

we went out and spent for the highest class ikea matress there was (more for convenience of buying everything in one place) and we've been quite satisfied with it for the past 3 years..
the other good thing i think nobody has mentioned about ikea is that you can get a pretty cheap rental van (paid for on an hourly basis): transport difficulties are often overlooked esp with more expensive materasses that are not delivered rolled up
