Why buy a Riverwood bed instead of a factory made import?

Imports from the Far East, mainly China can be of good quality, but read on. After being bought by the wholesaler your factory made bed has to be shipped thousands of miles to the UK. This is expensive and leaves a large carbon footprint. The wholesaler will then sell your bed to a retailer after usually doubling the price that it was bought for. The retailer has staff and an expensive High Street showroom to pay for so has to sell you the bed for at least double what was paid to the wholesaler. So guess who pays for all of this. Yes! its you the customer but only a fraction of your money goes on the value of the bed. A bed from us goes straight from our Glasgow workshop direct to you giving you the customer great value. Your money goes on your bed not on cumulative overheads!

What about matching bedroom furniture?

No problem. We can supply a full range of matching bedroom furniture in Oak. See our Oak Furniture Range on our website.

Is your furniture suitable for commercial use?

Yes-This furniture is robust and elegant, ideally suited to a businessl environment – hotels and guest houses for example.

Can I make alterations to the design of the beds?

Yes – These beds are hand made and design changes can be easily incorporated for a small charge. Most common requests are mattress and headboard height adjustments. Please call the showroom for more details on our bespoke designs.

I love the bed but it does not match the other furniture in my bedroom. Can you help?

Yes we can help. Oak can be stained very effectively and still look great. Contact the showroom for details on different stains available.

Guaranteed?

Yes. These beds will be passed from generation to generation and are fully guaranteed to the original owner for life and you have twelve month unconditional money back guarantee.

What about those sprung slatted bases you see on some other beds?

Sprung slats are great if you want to sleep on a trampoline! They also have a tendency to squeek! Mattress manufacturers make mattresses designed to be used on a solid base–the mattress does the work not the bed frame. Our advice is to stick to a solid base.

Can I get an extra long bed?

No problem-We can make beds in any size, we can also supply extra long mattresses too.

Are your beds suitable for heavy people?

Yes our beds are perfect for the heavier person. Let me know what weight is involved and I will make sure that the bed is suitable for you.

What about delivery?

We deliver anywhere tnroughout the UK mainland for £55.00. We do not deliver ourselves and use independant two person furniture carriers. If your address is outwith UK mainland just let us know and we will sort something out.

Assembly?

Beds are delivered for self assembly (if you are in the Glasgow area we will do this for you). Puting your bed together is very straightrorward — basically four sections to be bolted together and will take about 20 mins.
