Found 10th May 2012
hi all, have been searching around for a nice divan set (base+mattress). looking for pocket sprung only min: 1000. the ones on argos+homebase are out of stock. rest where too expensive. Came across ebay shops in particular found this:

Would you buy from ebay tho, am worried after delievery you cannot do anything even if the bed is damaged. plus am faraway from seller.

i bought one before from a company on ebay. some parts came broken but the company gave new parts the next day.

As long as it's not used!

i bought my memory foam mattress about 3 years ago. with 10 years warranty ...serving brilliant high streets were selling for more then double price what i paid!!

No. Just no.

Tesco always have offers on beds though. Picked up a double for £52 the other month online

same here. My high street wanted £500. I paid £120 delivered

As for all high value item purchased, pay using a credit card for added protection (that way you choose to ignore an uncooperative seller and lodge a claim directly with the card company).

In regards to the seller you linked to, a hotmail email address and no VAT/Company number listed doesn't make it look very impressive.

The address appears to be some sort of lock-up/workshop unit, as opposed to a retail shop.

Call them and confirm what they will/will not do if any of the parts arrive damaged/bits are missing from the order.

Weird you should bring this topic up because one of my hobbies is to buy second hand mattresses and sniff them
