9. OTHER PROVINCES BESIDES GAUTENG

We do not deliver to other provinces besides Gauteng.

We do stipulate on our homepage below the slider in white writing on a blue background.

The orders to do not get processed when orders are from another province besides Gauteng as the website blocks the process from advancing.

We have found that customers from other provinces do put Gauteng at the end of the address to bypass the system and the orders do go through.

The Bed Site will refund these customers from these other provinces less a 10% penalty.

6. Guarantee and Warranty explained:

Guarantee

The guarantee or guarantee period means that if the  bed or mattress fails due to proven manufacturing fault or defect during this time, the replacement is free. To honour the guarantee the bed or mattress has to be in a good sanitary condition with no stains or spills etc and must not show signs of abuse. Comfort is not guaranteed.

Warranty Period

If a manufacturing fault appears during the warranty period of the guarantee, the manufacturer  pays a certain percentage of the repair or replacement, with the customer paying the rest. The customer is required to pay the delivery costs during the warranty period. The charge will reflect the period of use, the current retail price and the number of years left on the warranty. In the case of a 10 year warranty on a  bed or mattress, there’s generally a one year guarantee and 9 year warranty. If the bed fails after 4 years the charge is calculated at 40% of the current retail price plus delivery/installation charges. After 8 years the customer’s contribution would be 80%. You should be aware that all guarantees and warranties are void if a fault results from misuse of the product. Consequently, if you have cause to complain, please contact the The Bed Site giving proof of purchase and outlining the nature of your complaint. If the guarantee and warranty conditions have been satisfied, we will then liaise with the manufacturer.

7. RESPONSIBILITY FOR RISK AND OWNERSHIP: 7.1 Responsibility for and ownership of the Goods passes to You once the Goods are Delivered or collected. 7.2 Where You have decided to pay through Our finance options, responsibility for and ownership of the Goods will only pass to You in accordance with the terms of Your finance documentation.
