In general, delivery costs of mattresses have fallen sharply. But the delivery of IKEA products still comes at a cost.
These start relatively low at a cost of £3.95 for smaller parcels but can quickly jump up to £9.95 or £19.95, depending on the size of the delivery.
Any products that are deemed too large or unsuitable for parcel delivery will be charged for at £39. Many of the larger mattresses, such as the standard double IKEA Hidrasund, will fall into this category.
We still assume that delivery costs will soon be a thing of the past.
The IKEA delivery itself is often carried out by one of their shipping partners, and delivery will take place within a few days.
90-day love it or exchange it returns policy
Even though IKEA offers a standard 365-day returns period, this only applies to products that can be returned in a new, unused, and re-saleable condition, with the original packaging.
Mattresses fall under a 90-day love it or exchange it returns policy.
IKEA only offers an exchange or a credit note.
So be prepared to spend the price of the mattress, even if you don't end up keeping it.
Returning the mattress is not easy either. IKEA return conditions can be tricky and you will have to cover the cost of the return.
This is a pity as most other manufacturers cover the cost of delivery and return and will refund your mattress in full.
IKEA does offer an amazing 25-year guarantee on all mattresses, but we would not recommend keeping a mattress for that long.
Given the more complicated nature of purchasing IKEA through their online store, we prefer to buy IKEA via Amazon. It just makes it one step easier.
