An adjustable bed can make the world of difference to your ability to sleep through the night, especially if you suffer from mobility problems. Unfortunately, adjustable beds can be quite expensive – after all, they contain complex machinery and electronics entirely missing from a standard bed.
You should never cut costs by going for a low-quality adjustable bed. Instead, here are just a few ways you can reduce the price of the high-quality adjustable bed you deserve.
Go VAT Free
Not everyone can scoop a VAT free purchase for their adjustable bed, but it might be an option for you. If you suffer from a long-term illness or are disabled, you may be able to avoid paying any VAT for your bed. However, you’ll need to show a doctor’s note to prove that this is the case. If it is, it could mean clipping up to 20% from your overall purchase price, which generally means reducing it by hundreds. Better yet, you won’t be charged VAT at the point of sale – there’s no need to claim anything back from HMRC.
Look for Financing
You might have considered getting a loan to pay for your adjustable bed. That’s certainly a way to go, but it’s usually far better to finance directly through the supplier. You should find better deals and interest rates, especially if you’re buying more than one piece of mobility furniture.
Find an Exchange Program
Finally, keep in mind that your old bed could hold value of its own. Many adjustable furniture suppliers offer exchange programs where your old bed is removed as the new one comes in. You’ll be provided with cash value on the old bed that you can put towards the new one. It might not always be a lot, but it’s better than nothing – you’ll even end up saving on hiring movers to get rid of that old bed yourself.
