Preparing for Your Flat-Packed Beds and Furniture

Preparing for Your Flat-Packed Beds and Furniture

Here at Happy Beds, we want the self-assembling process to be as simple and stress-free as possible. If you are contemplating ordering a flat-packed item or awaiting the arrival of your flat-packed bed, this flat-pack bed and furniture guide will put your mind at rest. Here, we explain tips on how to prepare for the arrival of your flat-packed bed or furniture and how to assemble it.

Preparing for your flat-packed furniture to arrive

Although taking delivery of your new flat-pack bed might seem like one of the most straightforward parts of the process, some common mistakes can be made that may affect your experience.

Keep a backup plan

Even though we believe you can easily assemble your new bed, we recommend you wait to dismantle your current bed before your new bed has been built. Leaving a backup sleeping solution is essential to ensure you have somewhere to sleep that night.

Know your delivery details

Familiarise yourself with the time and date of your delivery, and be sure to double-check this. Knowing when your bed or furniture item is being delivered may seem obvious, although it can be easy to mix up your days and fall unprepared for its arrival.

Be prepared

All of our product pages will feature an assembly manual on the page, so it is a good idea to look at this before your bed or furniture item arrives to ensure you are prepared for the self-assembly process.

How to build a flat-packed bed or furniture

Building a flat-packed bed or furniture can be daunting, but we want to make the process as easy as possible for our customers. Look over this quick ‘How to Build’ guide, and you'll be a DIY expert in no time.

  • Check that you have all the required parts before assembling.
  • Organise each part of the flat-packed item to ensure you keep all necessary pieces during the assembling process.
  • Get all the required tools together before you begin to make the building process as quick as possible.
  • Prepare plenty of space for the pre-assembling process, as you will struggle to remain organised in a cramped area.
  • Be sensible with your time, ensuring enough time to complete the assembling without staying up all night.

I have lost my assembly manual - what do I do?

Every flat-packed bed and furniture item here at Happy Beds is sold with the appropriate assembly manual. If you misplace your physical copy, every assembly manual is accessible via the Happy Beds website on each product page. Simply find the product you are trying to assemble and locate the PDF of the assembly manual on the page.

What if I am missing parts for my flat-packed item?

We try our best to ensure every item needed for your flat-packed bed or furniture item is provided on delivery. If you are missing a part of your bed or furniture item, please contact Happy Beds' customer service as soon as possible, stating the exact part number you require; this will be sent out to you promptly.

What can I do with my old bed?

One of the most challenging tasks of buying a new bed is figuring out what to do with the old one. You can donate to a local charity or arrange a local council collection to dispose of your older bed. If your bed is in good condition, you can sell your old bed frame on selling sites such as eBay or Facebook Marketplace. The money you make could offset the cost of your new bed, making it even more affordable to upgrade.

For older mattresses, we offer a helpful mattress recycling tool that makes it easy to dispose of your mattress ethically. Simply enter your postcode to find your nearest mattress recycling centre.
