New Order Lead Time Update
Update as at 03.04.21
With a return to some form of normality from 12th April, when we re-open, bed and mattress manufactures should hopefully be quoting near as normal lead times. A delay with imported springs may impact these lead times at a future date.
The majority of UK Bedstead suppliers, import their product from Brazil & the Far East, are experiencing major increases in shipping costs, which are delaying container deliveries, until a resolution can be agreed. This has been further impacted by the recent Suez Canal incident. I have never known a period where the UK stock levels of metal & upholstered bedsteads are so low, with many items not due to be available until June & in some cases July.
Apart from the increased costs which everyone has had to succumb to, our staff, should you wish to order a bedstead, will contact the supplier prior if need be to get an up-to-date status on that product, prior to you ordering.
