Beds, like all large pieces of furniture, will be delivered direct to your home. Once you've ordered your new bed - either online or from a furniture store - you will need to arrange delivery. In most cases, delivery is flexible, but some companies may have set delivery days that you need to fit in with. An increasing number of companies that deliver to domestic addresses are realising that it's not always convenient to ask people to wait at home all day, and so can make special arrangements for those who have to go to work or have other commitments. At Bed Next Day, for example, our general deliveries are usually free but, for a small charge, we can ensure that we deliver your bed before 9.30 - allowing you to get back to work as soon as possible. Comparing delivery charges Not all companies deliver free of charge. It's worth checking out the delivery prices before you commit to buying your bed - if the discount you get on the beds and mattresses is outweighed by the delivery charge, you can probably get a better bargain elsewhere. Some companies will make free deliveries within a certain radius of their base and charge customers who fall outside that area. Again, make sure you check the delivery arrangements before you order - that's why we have a dedicated "Delivery" section on our website. If you live on the ground floor of an apartment block, make sure your delivery company will bring the bed or mattress upstairs. If they are unable to do this, ask some friends or family members to help move the bed to your room. Assembly Will your bed supplier also assemble your bed? For certain divan bases, there's limited assembly required and some people may prefer to build the bed themselves. If you would rather that a professional handled the assembly, however, be sure to check that your retailer offers this service. Assembly may be included in the delivery charge, or it may be an extra costs. Make sure that you know exactly how much you have to pay for assembly before you decide to go ahead. Bed Next Day sells a range of traditional single, double, king and superking beds, most of which are available with next day delivery. Brands include Silentnight, the Original Bedstead Company, Sprung Land and Sealy.
