Beds – the competition for your business

There’s no shortage of retailers selling beds, so how do you decide where to buy?

There’s no shortage of retailers selling beds, so how do you decide where to buy?

The beds and mattress market is highly competitive. From long-established department stores to new online retailers, there’s never been more choice when it comes to buying a new bed. All these retailers want your business, and their advertising, discounts and offers are all designed to capture you as a customer.

It can all be very confusing, especially if you haven’t bought a bed in a while. There used to be a time when you would just visit your nearest furniture shop and buy something there, but today, people expect to get a great deal by running price comparisons and playing one retailer off against another.

When you’re considering looking at new beds, there are several things that you may want to take into consideration before you decide where to look and where to buy:

? Budget – it’s important that you know how much you want to spend. There are so many offers on the market and so many beautiful beds that it is easy to get carried away and spend far more than you can really afford. Take a look at current prices and set a realistic price that covers the bed, the mattress and any additional charges such as delivery.

? Assembly – if you’re happy to assemble your bed yourself, you may be able to buy a cheaper base or frame. You must be confident that you can put the bed together so that it is solid and safe and keep the assemble instructions so that you can take it apart again if you move home or if you need to move the bed. If you don’t want the hassle of self-assembly, make sure that the retailer you buy your bed from will supply someone to build it for you.

? Service – the service you get from the beds retailer you choose is as important as the choice of beds they provide. From the advice and information you’re given when you start looking to the speed of delivery once you’ve purchased your bed, the level of service you receive could be the thing that decides whether you’ll go back to that retailer.
