“Late Delivery is Only the First of Your Problems”

Written on: 03/03/2015 by Lindaw35 (1 review written)

Most of the reviews I have read over a number of review sites have been about late delivery but in our experience, that is really the least of your problems if you purchase from Benson for Beds. Just had a visit from their "independant" inspector who, very scientically, used a piece of rope and a piece of printed card to declare, despite more than a two cm sag on both sides of our bed, there was nothing wrong with it just expected settlement! Bensons use The Comfort Factor" as their… Read Full Review

“Bed not delivered”

Written on: 02/03/2015 by Healyvp249 (1 review written)

We ordered a double bed in January to be delivered today the 27th of February for moving into our 1st home. Bensons for beds was the only supplier to let us down with non delivery and no explanation of why it went wrong. Next day they say they will deliver is Thursday 6 days later. Nothing else was offered other than the floor to sleep on after a hugely busy day moving house. Very disappointed with the firm and would not recommend using them… Read Full Review

“false promises”

Written on: 26/02/2015 by varshaj (1 review written)

I had purchased a bed from Bensons for Beds and paid almost 1500 pounds for it. The price I paid was high because it came with a guarantee of 5 years. I was very happy with the mattress for 2 years until it started giving me back pain . I called their call centre , hoping they would give me a replacement as I was in the guarantee period but they sent an engineer to check the bed . He checked it and found depressions of about 3 inches and he passed it saying it had no faults and that its just… Read Full Review

“Buy Bensons.. Beware.”

Written on: 22/02/2015 by SleeplessinTynemouth (1 review written)

Bought a bed June 14. After 5 months one side of the mattress collapsed. I called Benson's who sent an independant chap to examine. He confirmed that it was a manufacturing fault. I heard nothing from Bensons so I called about a week later and was told that a replacement mattress would be ordered for me that day. (Bit annoyed that it hadn't already been ordered). I chased up the replacement order twice and was eventually told it would be delivered into them the following week. They… Read Full Review

“Bed”

Written on: 21/02/2015 by Landend1966 (1 review written)

Well our bed was supposed to come yesterday between 12pm -6pm it actually arrived at 8pm after 2 calls to store and 3 calls from the store. Our Son took our old bed to the tip yesterday as we couldn't store it but the guy at the store said ' I tell my customers not to get rid of their old bed in case the new one doesn't arrive' very good advert for Bensons I must say, what a stupid thing to say to someone waiting for a new Kingsize bed where did he expect us to store it ? It's very lucky we… Read Full Review

“DO NOT USE!!!!”

Written on: 11/02/2015 by Ashlyne392 (1 review written)

Husband and i decided to splash out on a new king size bed, airflow 500 memory foam topper mattress and memory foam pillows at the end of 2012 to a tune of nearly a grand. Was told in the shop that if we wanted a 5 year guarentee with the mattress we would have to pay an additional 25 quid for their mattress protector, which we did. Everything turned up speedily and the only disappointment at the time was the protector which was rubbish. Even on a king it was too saggy and was made of rubbish… Read Full Review

“Terrible service - feel insulted”

Written on: 09/02/2015 by bennibs123 (1 review written)

A terrible experience and would not recommend to anyone After being told my bed would be delivered from hours 12.00- 6.00 I booked the day off work to receive the delivery. At 6.00 I had received no bed and no information on what was happening or whether it was even going to turn up. So I rang the store they said it might be later than 6.00. I had to ring them to find this out so id wasted a days holiday at work. so I waited and waited until 8.15 that night to receive my bed meaning I had to… Read Full Review

“Brilliant delivery men!”

Written on: 06/02/2015 by Carrierbag2 (1 review written)

We have just had our bed delivered and are thrilled with it. The service from the delivery men was fantastic! One in particular was really helpful, nothing was too much trouble and he really went out his way to help us. We live in a 3 storey house with some very tight stairs but they were great and must have been shattered after heaving a superking bed up 2 flights of very tight stairs. They were still smiling at the end and were very friendly. … Read Full Review

Written on: 02/02/2015 by 65Holman (1 review written)

Went in to the Colindale store today and purchased an Airflow 2000 plus Superking size Mattress. Was served by the Manager who told me that there was a special offer with this mattress and I could buy 4 memory foam sensation pillows for half price.( which I foolishly did) . Upon getting home and reviewing the order I felt it odd that "half price pillows" would cost £29.99 each so I phoned the order line who confirmed that these pillows were not half price but full price and in fact the… Read Full Review

“It looks like a mockery of the customer.”

Written on: 01/02/2015 by O'Connor1951 (1 review written)

I am very disappointed in the customer service and the lack of communication. I have never been received such horrible customer service, being completely consumer ignorance. Along with that lack of communication, I was never informed for why my items were never delivered. We were specifically told that we would receive our items on the 9th of December but we did not. Next delivery was arranged at 29th of December and gain not delivered and I was not informed for why my items were never… Read Full Review

“Mattress purchase at Kingsway Derby”

Written on: 27/01/2015 by ChrisHolmes37 (1 review written)

We came in to purchase a mattress at the weekend, and just wanted to say how impressed we were with the store and the staff. Not only were they experts at finding the right mattress at the right price. But they were so kind and patient with my young children. We had no idea what we were looking for when we came in, but were certain we had made the right choice when we left. Also the store member in question kept my two entertained whilst we tried all the mattresses out, and when we went to pay… Read Full Review

Purchased a mattress 2nd one no complaints, recommended to my daughter who after 2 years has had nothing but trouble, dipping and lump in the middle, back breaking for her partner. The shop where she purchased it from didnt want to know was told to get intouch with customer services, what lovely people NOT helpfull NOT. The messing about sending photos, then to be told not getting a replacement, asking for an inspector to visit to be told we would have to pay, lets not forget they give a 5 year… Read Full Review

Thankyou for the kindest response yet since my daughter and i started all this last year. We have now drawn a line under this and accepted that a guarantee means nothing by bensons for Beds. The 2 people we spoke to at customer services had the same view there was nothing wrong with the mattress. My daughter is going elswhere for a new one.

“Worksop Shop's Brilliant! ”

Written on: 21/01/2015 by EllieBensons (1 review written)

Went to other companies in Notts area, finally ended up at Bensons Worksop. Excellent value for money, staff are an asset to the company and service is outstanding. Why we wasted our time with other companies beforehand, I'll never know. Great team of workers at Bensons who helped but not hindered whilst we were making our selection. Thanks for making the visit so stress free… Read Full Review

“Taunton Hankridge Farm”

Written on: 17/01/2015 by Joannaj78 (1 review written)

Went and purchased a memory foam pillow from the Bensons branch in Taunton Hankridge Farm and the experience was awful from start to a very long finish. My other half suffers from a bad neck and her osteo told her to purchase a pillow, so I did. We told them the bed was fairly new but the guy kept on and on about buying at least a new mattress as well, all hints where duly ignored! We bought a medium pillow which turned out was too hard but they didn't know if I could return it at first, but… Read Full Review

Copy of what I sent to Bensons directly......Yesterday my partner and I visited the Stafford store to buy a bedstead and some bedroom wardrobes and I just wanted to drop a quick line to say what a fab experience it was from start to finish. It's the first time I have bought anything from Bensons. We were warmly welcomed to the store by Xxx who was friendly and professional from the very start. We had lots of questions and she was very knowledgeable and able to answer all of them. I needed to… Read Full Review

I bought from bensons in Kidderminster two months ago, they knew alot about sleep and beds. After spending a long time helping me i bought good bed that only cost me £27 a month, its the best thing i have ever bought and the staff are great. compared to other bed store they had the advantage by miles. Didn't realise how much a good bed is but the 0% made it cheaper than my phone bill. some bed stores have staff who just want your money but i felt more like they really wanted me to but what i… Read Full Review
