What is the returns policy?
We hope you are delighted with everything you buy from us, but we do understand that you may need to return things sometimes.
If you’re not happy with something you receive from us for any reason, you can return your order (including sale and clearance items) complete, unused, unwashed or unassembled in a saleable condition within 30 days of receipt. Please ensure products are kept in their original packaging.
We understand many of you will be keen to get your Christmas shopping done early, so we’ve extended our returns policy to help you out! Any items bought as gifts from 17th October 2019 can be returned until the 10th January 2020 for an exchange or a refund. The extended Christmas returns period applies to all products that can normally be returned for exchange or refund, in line with our usual returns policy. Your statutory rights are not affected by this policy.
Our returns policy does not affect your legal right to cancel or your legal rights in relation to faulty products.
Refunds will be made back onto the original card which payment was made. We are not able to refund any postage charges for part of the orders returned.
Returning Beds or Mattresses
Please call our customer service team on 0344 848 6000 (9am – 8pm Mon – Fri, 10am – 4pm weekends and Bank Holidays) within 30 days of receipt to arrange a return of these items. Note this can take between 2-8 weeks to be collected, depending on location please see map here.
We cannot accept the return of items that have been assembled, used or damaged since we have delivered them. We are also unable to refund any assembly provided by GLTC after 30 days. If the bed is faulty please contact the customer service team on the number above. This does not affect the 5 year warranty on beds and mattresses please see separate terms here. The 5 year warranty starts from orders placed after 5th September 2018.
If you are returning a mattress due to the comfort sleep trial please see separate terms here.
How long will it take for my return to be processed?
We aim to refund your item within 5 working days of receipt at our warehouse, but please note that it may take up to 10 days for goods to get to us through the carrier networks. Once the order is refunded you will be notified by email.
How do I return something?
Our Free Returns policy means you can return things only from within the UK, excluding the Republic of Ireland, EIRE, Channel Islands and Highlands for any reason, at our cost, for a refund. You just need to return it, unused, within 30 days of the despatch date in its original packaging. For information on returning overseas orders please go to International Delivery. Furthermore, in the event that our Free Return options are not available in your area within the UK, we may ask you to return your items to us yourself along with a receipt for the cost of postage incurred. Before posting we must approve the cost of postage, once agreed we will then reimburse you for this on receipt of your parcel.
Please note if an item is returned which brings the value of your order below an offer threshold or the threshold for free delivery, your refund will be adjusted to reflect the fact that the offer is no longer valid. Any postage costs paid for delivery will not be refunded.
What to do:
To make returning unwanted items as easy as possible for you, we have a number of options available, all of which are completely free of charge. Please ensure that you complete a returns form with the correct information or you may not qualify for a refund.
