DX Freight- overnight, to door only
We use DX Freight for the majority our national, vacuum-packed mattress only deliveries. This relates to the Waterlattex, Relaxsan, Orthosoft, Moon, Memotouch, Optimal Support, IKool Firm and Pocket Sprung Memory Medium mattresses. Occasionally we will use this service for smaller items of furniture (a single under-bed drawer for example) or larger bedding orders (multiple items including heavier items such as mattress toppers etc).
This is an overnight, to-door only service; the delivery crew will not enter your property. DX work to an 8am-6pm delivery time-slot. These deliveries can be arranged for any weekday convenient for you. We will contact you directly to arrange this. If you cannot be at home for the duration of the time-slot it is possible to arrange for the mattress to be left in a safe place e.g. a porch or garage, although this does have to be requested prior to the delivery date.
For bed, bedroom furniture and mattress deliveries within Sheffield and the surrounding area, we deliver in our own van. These deliveries can be arranged Monday-Friday, generally with a 2 hour time-slot. Each item will be taken to the room of your choice, though furniture is delivered for self-assembly.
We can arrange for your bed to be assembled on delivery, however this will incur a charge of £25.00
We arrange our local deliveries ourselves; we will contact you as soon as your order is ready to be dispatched and aim to deliver in the same week as your contact date.
We can deliver our bed bases internationally. Please contact us for a quote and our current lead times. In order to provide a delivery price we will need the following information:
– a delivery address
– the size of bed base you are interested in,
– the bed model
– your preferred timber
It is not possible for us to ship our mattresses out of the country – they are too susceptible to damage in transit. Certain pieces from the Black Lotus and Ethnicraft ranges exceed the maximum weight limits for our delivery company; this will be mentioned on the product page if applicable.
If you are a customer based in Europe then the price you pay for the bed base would be the price you see listed on our website; this includes VAT. British VAT is currently set at 20%. If you prefer to pay your local rate of sales tax – let us know – we can refund the VAT on receipt of proof that your order has left the UK. In this case however you will then be required to pay your local rate of sales tax.
If you live outside Europe VAT will be removed from the cost of the bed and from the shipping cost. When we provide your quote we will include VAT where relevant, or remove VAT if you are exempt from paying British VAT.
NB: Our carriers provide proof that the goods have been exported so we are able not to charge VAT, however – if you use your own carriers – we are required to charge VAT, but this will be refunded when you/your carriers provide us with proof of export. In this case you may then be required to pay your local rate of sales tax and any other relevant taxes (import duties etc).
Bedding / Loungewear / Homeware Delivery etc.
All our bedding, homewares, toiletries etc are priced to include delivery within the mainland UK – there are no further delivery charges for this area. If you would like us to quote for delivery outside the mainland UK please let us know – we are happy to do so.
Small parcels under 2kg such as small throws and our range of kimonos are sent with Royal Mail on a first class service. Parcels over 2kg such as larger throws and bedspreads will be sent with MyHermes, with an expected transit time of up to 5 days from the date the order is placed.
High value items, bulkier home-ware and large, multiple piece orders are sent via DPD Local. This is an overnight service with delivery taking place the next working day after the order is collected. You will receive a text message to arrange a 1 hour time-slot for your delivery.
