Frequently Asked Questions

Who are is an online store owned and wholly run by Blackdog Upholstery Limited.  The website has been selling sofabeds for over ten years and has a reputation for excellence and customer service.  We are a specialist sofabed manufacturer that supplies direct to the public, thus cutting out unnecessary reseller costs.

Where is my Sofabed Manufactured?

We manufacture all our sofabeds in our 2 UK based factories.  We have one factory in Cheshire and another in Staffordshire.

Why are your prices so low?
Simply put we are the genuine manufacturer, we make the wooden frames, fill our own cushions, shape the foam cut and sew the fabric, upholster the frames,we even make our own mattresses.  This is all undertaken by our skilled crafts people in our own factories. Unlike many online sellers and shop based retailers who double up on their buy price due to high rents,rates and marketing costs, when you buy from us you get the price advantage of dealing with a  vertically integrated British Manufacturer.

So you will be buying a product that for example would retail for in excess of £1500 for say £700,without any compromise on quality or service. Indeed our seamless order processing, manufacturing and dispatch system ensures that you will generally receive your furniture much more quickly than from a store based retailer, delivered to your home by a dedicated white glove delivery service anywhere in the UK mainland

All the sofabeds that we manufacture are bespoke to an individuals requirements.

Under The Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000, you normally have the right to cancel a contract within seven days – starting from the day after you take delivery of goods (a “cooling off period”).  However due to the nature of a sofa bed, and for hygiene reasons, and as our sofa beds are all cut and made to order the seven day rule does not apply. This is as per rule 3:38 of the Guide for Businesses on Distance Selling, dated September 2006

However, should you wish to return your sofabed we will accept this within 14 days of delivery.  There will though be a restocking fee of 60% which will be deducted from your refund as well as any delivery costs incurred. Please see our Terms & Conditions for full details.
