Delivery will be deemed to have taken place when the Goods have been delivered to the agreed address. Bedwarehouse.com do not need to satisfy themselves that the person accepting delivery at the agreed address is authorised by the Buyer to accept the Goods.
You will be given time to check your goods carefully for any visible damage before signing for them. Please note that it is your responsibility to sign for the delivery as received, should your packaging be damaged, please mark this on the delivery note as failure to do so may result in any future claim for replacements due to damage being invalidated.
Delivery is officially to the front door only but Goods may be taken to the room of your choice if the access is clear. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that the goods will fit into the chosen location and that there is satisfactory access to the chosen location.
Most Goods will require some form of assembly and it is the Buyer's responsibility to assemble the Goods.
Delivery, whether charged or not, does not include unpacking or assembly. Please inspect all goods on delivery and advise us of any visible damage as soon as possible.
The deliverers will not remove existing pieces of furniture to help make room for newly delivered products. The customer must take the responsibility to organize the removal and disposal of unwanted furniture. Likewise, old pieces of furniture will not be taken away unless this has been arranged with bedwarehouse.com prior to delivery. Where this service is requested and is available there will be a charge made and the customer will agree to this charge prior to delivery.
Customers are advised when accepting goods to have protective sheets available as the goods being delivered may have transferred through a number of warehouses and delivery vehicles.
Where the Goods cannot be delivered on the day arranged due to the fault of the buyer, Bedwarehouse.com retains the right to charge a further £45 for "re-delivery" to cover costs incurred. This charge will be taken from the debit/credit card used to purchase the Goods.
Refunds on Goods canceled prior to delivery will be made as soon as possible following written notification of cancellation and in any case will not exceed a period of 14 days of that written notice. All refunds will be made onto the same card used to make the original purchase.

Special Items i.e. Bespoke items, manufactured specifically for the Buyer, cannot be cancelled once the order has been accepted by Bedwarehouse.com.
Please be aware that due to the intimate nature of Beds, mattresses, pillows, mattress protectors, duvets etc, these items are exempt from the statutory 14 day cooling off period when they have been unsealed.

Should the Goods not be adequately packaged at the time of collection then they will not be collected and Bedwarehouse.com retain the right to charge a further £45 for "re-collection" to cover costs incurred. The "re-collection" charge will be deducted from the refund value.
Following collection or return, should Goods be found to be damaged (not in their original saleable condition), and the Damage is not the result of our actions or negligence, Bedwarehouse.com will deduct a reasonable amount from the refund to cover such damage. (Such amount not to exceed the price of the Goods).
Should the buyer unreasonably fail or refuse to make the Goods available to us when requested within 14 days then it will be deemed that the buyer has decided to keep the goods at the price paid and in the condition they are in.
