Visco Memory Bed Free Trial Policies

What's Hidden In The Small Print

Home trials only apply to visco memory beds and mattresses and not to any other products or accessories (bed frames, pillows, covers, etc).

The most important thing to do before signing up for a home trial is to carefully read the fine-print and, if not stated, ask for a quote for returning the viscoelastic bed.

Only two major manufacturers, Tempur-Pedic and Bergad, offer details on their home trial policy (they apply only if you buy visco memory beds directly from them). When buying viscoelastic mattresses from other retailers, always double check their trial policy.

Tempur-Pedic Mattress Trial Policy

Tempur-Pedic offer 90 night trials for any Swedish sleep system or Tempur mattress (accessories not included). You are required to sleep on the Tempur bed or mattress for at least two weeks before ending the trial and asking for a refund.

You are not charged for shipping the visco memory bed back since the Tempur-Pedic trial policy clearly states that they 'will pick everything up' at their own expense. However, you will not be reimbursed the original shipping cost (around $159).

Tempur-Pedic is one of the few companies to offer home trials (60 nights) in the UK.

Bergad (Isoform) Memory Foam Trial Policy

Bergad offer few details about their 90 night home trial. Returning the visco foam bed gets you a full refund except shipping costs. Unfortunately, they do not mention which shipping costs -- the original delivery cost, return shipping cost at the end of the trial or both.

However much you may like memory foam when trying it in store it may always prove not to be the right choice later on. You should only buy viscoelastic foam beds or mattresses from reputable stores or manufacturers who offer home mattress trials and only after reading the fine print.
