The Dreams store experience
So, what can you expect when you visit a Dreams beds showroom?
You’ll likely be greeted by a sales advisor, but don’t be put off from this forward approach.
The sales staff are there to give you help and advice on finding the perfect mattress. 😀
If you’d rather just look around first, then politely tell them and they will be available for questions once you are ready.
Sleepmatch is a smart piece of equipment that can be found in-store.
All you have to do is lay down on the high-tech bed and wait 3 minutes. ⏲️
The Sleepmatch machine will then analyse your data and choose some suitable mattresses based on these results.
Watch the video below to see how it works:
We’d be lying if we didn’t say we were a little sceptical.🧐
Can laying on a machine for a few minutes can really determine your perfect mattress?
But overall there are positive reviews from those that have used the Sleepmatch machine. 👍
Can you haggle at Dreams beds?
Whether or not you can get an extra discount at Dreams depends on a variety of factors.
But it’s worth trying to get the best deal you can. 🏷️
The salesperson will consider:
- The total cost of your order
- Whether the price is already reduced
- Whether you are purchasing any add-ons such as pillows or mattress protectors
- How close the salesperson is to their target
If you’re spending a lot of money, with extras such as pillows, they are more likely to give you their best price. 💰
But if you're just buying a cheap single mattress, you're unlikely to get a discount.
Likewise, the sales advisor might knock some money off if they’re close to reaching their weekly sales target. 👀
Therefore, you’re better off visiting a Dreams store during quiet periods or towards the end of the week.
Bensons for Beds are known for being more open to offering back pocket deals.
But if you catch a member of the Dreams team on a good day, you might be in luck. 🤗

Dreams beds payment options
Once you’ve decided on your new Dreams bed, you’re probably wondering what sort of payment options are available. 🤔
Dreams offer interest-free credit both in-store and online.
As long as you spend a minimum of £500 and can leave a 20% deposit, you’ll be able to apply.
You can then spread the payment across 6, 10, or 20 months. 😍
Dreams 40-night sleep guarantee
Dreams offer a 40-Night Sleep Guarantee on all of their mattresses. ⏳
This means you have between 30 - 40 nights to sleep on your mattress before deciding to keep it.
If after this period, you decide the mattress isn’t for you, you can exchange it for one that is more suitable.
You must use a mattress protector as a condition of the sleep trial.
Some mattress brands offer longer trials and full refunds after the trial period has ended.
Simba gives you one whole year to try the mattress or your money back. 🤯
Dreams beds delivery
So, how does the delivery process work at Dreams beds?
Dreams provide free delivery on all UK orders with no minimum spend. 🚚
Before your delivery, you’ll be given a 2-hour time slot ahead of their arrival. ⏲️
Dreams beds have a white glove delivery service, meaning two men will deliver your products to your room of choice.
The downside is that delivery times are fairly long when compared with online brands that offer next day delivery.
Dreams mattresses take around 2 weeks but can be much longer.
This is vastly different when compared with Ergoflex who offer free next day delivery on their mattresses.
Do dreams take away your old mattress?
Dreams also offer a recycling service on old beds and other products when you place an order. ♻️
The below can give you an idea of their recycling prices:
- Mattresses: £30 - £45
- Bed frames & divan bases: £30
- Sofa beds: £35
- Headboards: £20
- TV beds: £55
You’ll be given (or sent if ordering online) a recycling bag to wrap the items up before delivery.
You can see full instructions on how to wrap the products on the Dreams website.
Dreams beds assembly service
Dreams can also assemble a range of different products to make the delivery process even easier. 😅
Prices for assembly vary and these can change over time, but divans can be assembled from £15 or more depending on your size.
For bed frames and other products, you’ll be paying between £40 - £100 for the assembly service. 🛠️
The great news is they take away all the packaging to be recycled, saving you that extra job that can be a hassle!
