We are pleased to accept orders by online transaction via our secure server. All credit/debit card transactions are subject to validation checks and are authorised by the card issuer. We accept MasterCard, Visa, Delta, Switch, Maestro and Solo. If the issuer of your card refuses to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay and/or non-delivery of your order. No orders will be accepted or processed without a valid card payment in the name of the registered card holder. The web price includes VAT at 20%.

If you need to change details of your delivery address, remove items from your order or cancel it completely, please contact our Customer Services team for advice on 0845 19 900 19 between 9am and 5.30pm, 6 days a week, or use our contact form.

Delivery Terms for Furniture & Beds
Free local delivery is available within 25 miles of our stores in Hedge End (SO30 2QY ) & New Milton (BH26 6DN) on orders over £500 in value. If you are outside this area, please allow us to quote you a competitive delivery charge based on the distance and size of your order.

Your furniture is carefully transported and wrapped in protective packaging. We will unwrap and place your furniture exactly where you want it and then remove all the packaging. (This excludes home assembly furniture).
We will ask you to examine the goods in the presence of our delivery crew and if you find the goods to be defective in any way this should be noted on the delivery documentation which will be relayed to our customer services department who will contact you within 48 hours.
Returns and Exchanges
If you are not 100% satisfied when you receive your products, you may return the items to us within 28 days for exchange or refund. This excludes beds and mattresses which have been taken out of their original sealed packaging, and “made to order” or “special order” items such as most pieces of furniture. Returns will take approximately 7 working days for processing upon receipt.
We recommend that you insure the package you are returning. We suggest the use of a carrier that can provide you with a "proof of delivery". Bradbeers.com cannot be liable for items lost or damaged in transit.
Bradbeers will issue you with a voucher code equal to, or greater than the postage cost to you of returning unwanted items. This can then be used as a discount against your next purchase (conditions apply).
You may also return items to our stores. It does not have to be the branch from where you originally bought the item. You will be asked to provide proof of purchase (ie. a receipt).
NB: Linens – Due to hygiene reasons no return will be accepted on any filled products such as duvets, pillows and mattress toppers. Lingerie – it is our policy that we will not exchange or refund briefs, thongs or foundation wear with a gusset. This is for hygiene reasons.
Furniture & Beds: Most of these items will have been specially ordered for you. If you wish to cancel your order after the goods have been delivered and signed for in good order, then Bradbeers does not normally take the goods back. We will, however, look at each case on its merits. In order to help us to help you, please do not use the goods, but take care of them and keep the original packaging where possible.
This does not affect your statutory rights.
Products, Prices and Content
Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the pictures and colours depicted on the website match as closely as possible those of the actual products, due to technical limitations, some colours may vary. All prices are shown in pounds sterling (£) and are inclusive of UK vat at the current rate unless clearly stated.
Prices, product descriptions, images and specifications are checked to the best of our ability, and whilst every effort has been made to make them accurate, no responsibility will be accepted for errors and omissions.
All items for sale on our website are deemed for contractual purposes not to be “offered for sale”, but rather to be “invitations to treat” (as per Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain v Boots Cash Chemists (Southern) Ltd 1953).
Any information displayed on our website or other printed matter by the company is not regarded to be authoritative or certified as the best practice and is only considered to be useful supplementary advice to other certified codes of practice.
All information on our website is updated regularly. We reserve the right to alter our prices and specifications without notice.
Contract Creation and Ownership of Goods
For all items (excluding specially ordered furniture and beds) the technical steps required to create the contract between you and us are as follows:-
You place the order on the Website by pressing the “confirm order” button at the end of the checkout process. You will be guided through the process of placing an order by a series of instructions on the website.
We will send to you an order acknowledgement email detailing the products you have ordered. This is automatically generated and is not an order confirmation or order acceptance.
When your product is shipped from our warehouse we will send you a despatch confirmation email.
Order acceptance and the completion of the contract between you and us will take place on the despatch to you of the products ordered, unless we have notified you that we do not accept your order, or you have cancelled it or if it is for specially ordered items.
Contract Completion for Furniture, Beds and other specially ordered items – Bradbeers will send a separate order confirmation email in addition to the automatic email you will receive straight after placing the order. This separate order confirmation email will be checked by a human being in order to make sure that everything is correct. The contract of sale will be deemed to be complete once this email has been sent and full payment has been received. This order acknowledgement email will give an indication of the lead time to delivery. For example, many items take 6 – 8 weeks, but the lead time varies depending on many variables. Customers should understand that this lead time information is given in good faith and does not form part of the sales contract, should delivery for any reason take longer than anticipated.
Non-acceptance of an order may be a result of one of the following:-
1. The product you ordered is unavailable from stock or discontinued by the manufacturer.
2. Our inability to obtain authorisation for your payment.
3. The identification of a pricing or product description error.
