How to order
Items can be ordered on-line, or by e-mail, phone or in person. Customised orders however cannot be ordered on-line.
If you order on-line using a credit or debit card, the full amount will be taken as the order is placed.
If you order by e-mail, phone or in person, we require a 10% deposit (50% for customised bed frames), to be paid with the order, and payment of the balance owing before or on the day of dispatch of your goods. If you have placed an order and paid in full upfront, but decide to cancel the order before the goods have been dispatched – we will refund the full order value (unless this is a bespoke item – please see the returns policy below).
Please note we are a small company and each bed is made to order. The timber is ordered specifically for each customer, so please be sure that you are confident that the bed chosen is the right size, model and timber for you before ordering. Cancelling or changing orders at a later date is very costly for us, and changes in model or timber will delay the production of your bed.
Your card and personal details are protected by encryption when they are sent over the internet. You will be dealing directly with the bank when the payment is made. This interaction is secured with the industry standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.

After we receive your order you will be sent a written confirmation indicating an approximate lead time. We ask you to check the details are correct, to promptly confirm any errors, and to please read the accompanying fact sheet which includes important information regarding your order.
Please let us know if there are any unusual access issues for your property, or particular requirements regarding your order.
We endeavour to make our bed-frames to the dimensions as stated on the product pages, however a tolerance of 20mm should be allowed for. They are hand made items made especially for you!
When your order is ready we will contact you to arrange delivery. Please note storage charges may apply if you delay despatch once your order is complete in production.
Beds and sofa beds are delivered flat-packed. They are supplied with clear instructions for quick and easy assembly. Approximate assembly times are between 20 – 40 minutes and are listed on the relevant product pages.
Futon mattresses are delivered rolled up and in plastic tubing. Most other mattresses are rolled and vacuum packed into boxes. The box for a 1.50m mattress measures approx 150x30x30cm. Some mattresses are delivered directly from the manufacturer, if this is the case you will be notified at point of order. Sprung mattresses are not vacuum packed.
Outside the Sheffield area we use a carrier for delivery. Weekday delivery to the UK mainland is included in the purchase price.
Free delivery will be on an agreed weekday between 8am and 6pm. It may be possible to deliver some orders on a Saturday – for this there is a charge of £42.00.
Someone must be available to sign for the delivery. If you have to leave the house and cannot be there, you can leave a signed note on your door authorising the carrier to deliver to an immediate neighbour or to leave the goods in your garage or porch.
We may have to levy a charge for non delivery if no-one is there to receive the consignment once a date has been arranged or if the accepted delivery date/time slot is cancelled within 48 hours of the delivery date by yourself (this is charged by the carriers and may be passed on to the customer).
This charge is a minimum of £55.00 but is dependent on the size of your order and delivery location, the couriers would confirm the charge with us before we pass this onto you.
Within the Sheffield area we deliver with our own van, Monday-Friday. We can generally offer a 2 hour time slot, arranged with the customer.
Contact us for delivery to UK offshore islands and the rest of the world.

If there is obvious damage to your consignment, please refuse to accept the damaged parcels and ask the carrier to return the goods to us. We suggest you accept any undamaged parcels.
Damage discovered after unpacking must be reported within 3 days of delivery, we cannot accept liability for claims made after that date.
In common with other companies we cannot accept return of a mattress that has been unpacked and/or slept on unless it is faulty. This is because for hygiene reasons it cannot be sold to anyone else. Please keep the plastic packaging on the mattress if you think you may need to return it.
If, having received your bed/mattress in good condition, you wish to return this un-used item (for any reason), it will be subject to the following charges:
- the cost of the collection from your address and delivery back to the Natural Bed Company;
- any item that has been personalised to your requirements will also be subject to a minimum charge of 25%. (A bed is considered to be personalised if you can not order this version of the bed as a standard option on our website e.g. non standard size or finish, changes to the dimensions, addition of a footboard, use of customer’s own fabric)
- Notice of intention to return any goods must be given within 14 days of receipt (for multiple items ordered at one time – this is within 14 days of receipt of the last item received).
- Any returned goods must be packed to the standard in which they were sent out. Delivery of any additional packing materials supplied by the Natural Bed Company, or any damage resulting from inadequate packing will be charged to the customer.
- The Natural Bed Company will arrange collection by a carrier and specify the day of collection. It will not usually be possible to specify an exact time of day.
