snug Comfort Pledge

We want you to be confident with your new purchase and we want you to get it right the first time. This means you’ll be happy straight away, which is what we always strive to achieve. With over 25 years’ experience helping customers choose the right mattress to suit them, we are confident that with a chat over the phone, or a visit to our showroom, we can alleviate most doubts by advising customers on the best Vispring mattress to suit their body shape/weight and their individual sleep preferences.

However, we also appreciate it is a large investment and even with our guidance, this may not always be enough reassurance, which is why we are offering a Comfort Pledge for Vispring Mattresses.

How does it work?

If after sleeping on your new Vispring mattress for a minimum of 30 nights and a maximum of 90 nights from the date of delivery, you decide it isn’t the right Vispring mattress for you, we can offer an exchange of your Vispring mattress for a new spring tension (same Vispring model).

There is a £100 charge to cover this exchange. This is a one-time exchange only and refunds are not permitted. Once exchanged, the Comfort Pledge will end and the original mattress cannot be retained.

Please note, for zipped mattresses, we can only offer an exchange of tension on one of the two mattresses and the mattress cannot be changed to a one piece mattress.

We recommend sleeping on the original mattress for as long as you can up to the upper limit of the 90 days. This is because it takes time to adjust to the feel of a new mattress and if you decide to exchange too soon, you may ultimately make the wrong decision. By all means, please do call us earlier to discuss any concerns.

If you would like to invoke our Comfort Pledge we need you to put this in writing together with your proof of purchase. This Comfort Pledge is only available to the customer that made the original purchase and is only available for mattresses that remain in mainland UK.

This offer does not apply to mattresses which have been damaged through misuse, wilful or accidental damage, neglect or general wear and tear.

Our Delivery Service

We offer a FREE 2-Man Delivery Service to the Room of Choice as standard for all orders over £500 for mainland UK addresses, excluding the most remote parts of the Scottish highlands which will carry a small surcharge.  For orders under £500, we ask for a small contribution of £15.

If you would like your order assembling,
 this service can be added at checkout for £29 - FREE on all orders over £3000.  Sofas will also be installed as part of our free delivery service.

We also offer a mattress and divan recycling service as part of the product options when ordering your new mattress or bed.

For non-mainland UK addresses including Northern Ireland and other UK islands we ask for a small contribution to the delivery charge, which will be calculated at the checkout once you enter your delivery address. For some very remote areas, we will display a message for you to contact our showroom so we can provide a quotation.

For Channel Islands and International deliveries, please contact our showroom, who will be able to discuss the delivery options with you and provide a quotation.

Our delivery and assembly service

We provide a 2-man delivery service to the room of choice, as standard, on all large items to customers nationwide, using our in-house team or one of our specialist Delivery Partners. 

We will contact you ahead of the planned delivery to agree a mutually convenient delivery date, most commonly between Monday and Friday although weekends are sometimes possible. The day before the delivery you will receive a 3-hour timed slot, so you know when to stay in to receive your delivery.  On the day of delivery, our delivery team will also endeavour to keep you updated should they run into a traffic jam or get delayed by any unforeseen event. 

Our experienced delivery teams will carry your order to the room of choice (up two flights of stairs - please do let us know if it is any further), where they will unpack the order and remove and recycle any packaging, leaving you free to enjoy your new bed or mattress. For those of you who select our assembly service, the team will also install your bed or headboard so you don’t have to lift a finger.

At the time of placing the order, please do let us know if you have any planned holidays around the delivery period (we can only hold orders for 2 weeks once made, after this storage charges may apply), parking restrictions or difficult access (either inside the property or approaching the property), so we can look into the best solution for you.

Recycling your old bed or mattress

Should you no longer have a need for your old mattress or bed, we can remove and recycle this item for you (on a like-for-like basis) when delivering your new order. There will be a charge of £45 per mattress or £60 per bed for this service.


Please ensure when placing the order that the item will fit into your home and there is sufficient access to your room, for example around a tight bend in your staircase or through a narrow doorway. If you are unsure, then our showroom will be more than happy to discuss the access with you. This way we can do all that we can to ensure the item fits in. We always try our hardest to find a solution.

Small Item delivery via Courier (Bedding & Bed Linen):


For smaller items such as bedding and bed linen, we charge a flat rate of £6.00 using a Next Working Day delivery service for all mainland UK addresses excluding the most remote parts of the Scottish highlands which will carry a small surcharge.  For customers who spend over £100 on Brinkhaus bedding we offer FREE delivery.

For Northern Ireland and most other UK islands we charge a flat rate of £12. For the most remote postcodes and International addresses, we will display a message for you to contact us so that we can provide a quotation.


Parcels will be delivered by a reputable, national courier and will require a signature on delivery, unless you request for the item to be left in a safe place or with a neighbour. In most instances, you will receive a text/email message on the day of the delivery (direct from the courier company) with a 1-hour timed slot. If that time slot is not convenient there will be various options on the message to leave in a safe place, deliver on a different day or leave with a neighbour, simply follow the instructions provided.

We deliver to all postcodes in mainland U.K., Northern Ireland and most UK islands (there may be some exceptions to the most remote postcodes).  If you require delivery outside of this area including the Channel Islands and International Deliveries, please contact snuginteriors directly for more information.

Frequently Asked Questions


Does spring count matter in a mattress?

Yes, to a certain extent.  First and foremost is the quality of the pocket spring.  You want a high quality pocket spring providing progressive support - this is the engine of your mattress.  Once you have this, you can compare spring count, and so long as the springs are comparable in quality, as a general rule of thumb the higher the number of pocket springs in the mattress, the more supportive the mattress.  Some manufacturers will try to inflate spring count by using thousands of mini springs, however these do not provide the same level of support as a full size spring, so whilst there may appear to be more pocket springs, the level of support will not be as good.

What does mattress spring tension mean?

The tension refers to the thickness of the wire that is used in the spring and the amount of support this offers. The thicker the wire the firmer the resistance and more weight would need to be applied. Therefore for a heavier person a firmer mattress tension will offer a higher level of support, for a lighter person a softer mattress tension will be more beneficial. If you are too light for a spring tension, you will find you do not get the best level of support as you are not able to engage the springs and get the full benefit, instead you would just be resting on top of the springs.

What’s the benefit of a mattress with pocket springs?

Pocket sprung mattresses are made up of thousands of individually wrapped springs that can react and move independently based on when and where pressure is applied. This means that the springs can closely contour to the body’s weight and shape to provide the optimum level of support.

How do I know which will be the best mattress for me?

Choosing the right mattress is a very personal experience that is different for everyone. Many factors should be considered when purchasing a new mattress, such as: body height, body weight, the number of people using the mattress, who the mattress will be used by etc. For guidance and help with your choice use our helpful buying guides and ensure you find the right mattress for you. Alternatively, speak to a member of our friendly team who are very experienced and have specialist knowledge, or visit our large Hampshire showroom.

Do you offer custom/bespoke sizes?

Yes. As all our luxury mattresses and divan bases are made to order, so our manufacturers can make bespoke sizes. If this is of interest to you, please contact a member of our team who can provide you with more details. 

Is it better for my mattress to have natural upholstery fillings?

Natural upholstery fillings do prove to be a higher quality filling than those such as foam as they allow your mattress to breathe, regulate body temperature and wick away moisture from the body. However, some manmade fillings, such as Solotex and recycled eOlus, do also offer qualities like this, therefore these can also be beneficial to a mattress. Our manufacturers pride themselves in offering traceable, sustainable and recyclable upholstery fillings in each of their mattress models.
