However, if you prefer to order via our customer service team, please submit the following details.

  • The product’s name.
  • The number of products you wish to order.

How long will my bed or mattress last?

Usually an average priced bed will last 7-9 years.

Who is responsible for disposing of our old bed, mattress or other items being replaced?

Your local council will usually have a collection service and we would suggest they’re your first point of contact. Unfortunately, we don’t have the facilities to collect furniture or items that are being replaced.

Do you take the furniture upstairs?

As goods are sent by courier they can only be delivered to the ground floor.

Does everything arrive assembled?

Some items do not need any assembly such as mattresses, however, where furniture can be flat-packed to facilitate delivery this will need to be assembled on arrival.  we do not offer an assembly service  on flatpack furniture and we would recommend you assemble the products in the room the furniture is intended for to avoid difficulty in moving the furniture through doorways.

What is the standard length of bed?

For 2’6’’, 3’0’’, 3’6’’, 4’0’’, 4’6’’ standard length is 6’3’’ (also known as mattress size).

For 5’0’’, 6’0’’ standard length is 6’6’’ (also known as mattress size).

Why does memory foam mattress appear to smell?

Do not worry, this is normal for a short period of time and soon disappears.

Are memory foam mattresses good for back pain?

Because the memory foam moulds to your body contours, it allows you to sleep in the most anatomically correct position.  This relieves any pressure and provides even support for your whole body – so this should ease any aches and pains from sleeping in positions that normally place strain on specific areas of your body.

What is the difference between memory foam and an ordinary mattress?

Memory foam is heat sensitive; it feels softer when warm and firm when cold.  This allows it to mould to your body as your body heat acts upon it.  Normal mattresses don't respond to temperature and, therefore, don’t change shape to suit your sleeping position.  However, please be aware that cheap memory foam mattresses are usually made from a less dense material and don’t provide the same support.  When you start to sink into them – you may well keep on sinking!  Direct Furniture 247 only offers good quality memory foam mattresses.

How do I convert sizes in feet to centimetres?

  • 1 foot equal to 12 inches;
  • 12 inches equal to 30.48 centimetres;
  • 1 inch equal to 2.54 centimetres;

Are memory foam mattresses suitable for adjustable beds, automatic beds or slatted base beds?

Yes, there is no problem using memory foam mattresses on all these types of bed.
