Our delivery and assembly service

We offer a 2-man delivery and installation service 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 4-hour timed slot, so you know when to stay in to receive your delivery. On the day of delivery, our delivery team will call you when en-route to give you a more precise arrival time (unless you are the first delivery of the day).  They’ll also endeavour to keep you updated should they run into a traffic jam or get delayed by any unforeseen event. Once at your home the two-man delivery crew will carry the item to your desired room, assemble the item (where this service has been selected or is automatically included), and will remove any packaging.

Please do let us know at the time of placing the order if you have any restrictions or difficult access either inside the property or approaching the property, so we can look into the best solution for you.

If you would prefer a contact-free delivery service, this can be arranged.  Please just let us know in advance.

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.

How do I know if I should buy a softer or firmer bed?

The mattress tension is normally determined by your body shape and weight, together with the feel you find most comfortable.

Generally, a heavier frame suits a firmer mattress with a more supportive spring. A lighter frame needs a softer spring so that the body’s weight can properly engage the spring and get the support it really needs. If a spring is too firm for the body’s weight, the person will just be lying on top of the mattress and not getting the full benefit.

Firm or orthopaedic is best for my back” is a common myth. Instead what is right, is the correct level of support for your body weight. This doesn’t need to be rock solid! Even with a firm spring you can still have added softness from the layers of upholstery in the mattress.

A correctly supporting mattress will see your spine lying straight. If the mattress is too soft, your spine will bow downwards. If it is too firm, it will bow upwards.

If a couple shares the bed, it is important to consider the different weights and shapes of both people, however, depending on the mattress size you are choosing and whether or not a combination tension is available, you will need to be guided by the weight of the heavier person. A mattress topper can always be added if the lighter person then requires more softness.

A simple test to find the best tension for you:
Slide your hand beneath the small of your back and the mattress. If it slides in too easily, the mattress is too firm. If it has to be forced under, it is too soft. It should be a snug fit. If you like to nestle into the mattress then we would recommend going for a softer tension or one with lots of generous upholstery.

Why is a pocket spring mattress better than an open coil mattress?

A pocket spring mattress is made up of thousands of individual springs nested in cotton pockets and hand laid in a honeycomb pattern. Each individual pocket spring works independently and reacts according to the weight that it receives, delivering a high level of support to the body as the springs are able to closely contour the body's shape and weight and provide progressive support.  

An open coil mattress is a traditional spring type made from a continuous piece of steel and forms one large spring. It is a very hardwearing spring type but it is not able to react in the same way as pocket springs, where each independent spring can adjust to the different weight and shape of the body.  The open coil spring does of course react to weight but a much larger area of spring is forced to move when put under pressure and the spring cannot contour the shape of the body so closely, so the level of support is not comparable.

Is a firm or orthopaedic mattress better for my back?

No, this is a common misconception. What is important when buying a new mattress is that you get a good supportive mattress to suit your bodyweight. This can still include soft layers of upholstery for excellent comfort.

If you choose a mattress that is too firm for your bodyweight, you will not be able to engage the springs and get the full benefit and support of the mattress, instead you will simply be lying on top of the mattress.  Equally, if you are buying a mattress that cannot support your bodyweight, you will be crashing through the mattress and again not getting the correct support to suit you.

The mattress tension will normally help guide your choice, together with an individual’s preference to a firmer or softer feeling mattress, their age and any previous back problems. For instance, an elderly person may prefer a firmer mattress as they may find it easier to get up out of.  Whilst a lighter weight person may prefer a finer gauge (soft spring) so that their body has more support and more contact points with the mattress.

It is also important to consider the base you are putting the mattress on and how this might alter the feel of the mattress.  

By getting a mattress that is tailored to suit you, such as a pocket spring mattress that will respond to your body’s shape and weight, you will get a much higher level of support and excellent comfort.

Here at snuginteriors, we are bed specialists, and our team are highly experienced and well trained to advise our customers on the best mattress to suit them, so if you would like any help in choosing your next mattress, please do not hesitate to give us a call.

What is a combination tension mattress?

A combination tension mattress is a one-piece mattress offering two tensions on the left- and right-hand side of the mattress.  They are available on selected mattress models in king size and above.  They are designed to suit couples with differing body weights, allowing the lighter person to go for a softer tension and the heavier person to go for a firmer tension. This gives a better level of support to the two differing bodyweights and ensures greater comfort.  There is no additional charge for choosing a combination tension. 

It is not possible to have a combination tension in a double sized mattress, this is because there is not enough space to have two different tensions. In this case, you will need to select the mattress tension that best suits the heavier weight person so that they are adequately supported, and you do not roll into each other.  You can then consider adding a mattress topper for additional comfort for the lighter weight person.


What is a zipped mattress?

A zipped mattress is a pair of mattresses joined together with a zip to make a larger one piece mattress, such as a pair of 90 x 200cm mattresses to create a one piece Super King 180 x 200cm. They are most commonly associated with Super King sizes and above and are popular for three reasons:

1) to allow people to separate the one piece mattress into twin mattresses (often zipped mattresses are paired with linked divan bases which can also split into two and provide twin beds.

2) They are a great option when somebody is looking for a larger size mattress but they have access issues getting a one piece mattress to the room of choice.

3) Turning two smaller mattresses is much easier than turning the weight of a very large and heavy one piece mattress.  Regular turning of mattresses ensures even usage and helps customers get the most out of the mattress for the long-term.
