There are over 1000 mattress brands in the market which has prices ranges across the board. There was also a mattress company that custom make mattress to you and your partner’s sleeping style. But all of these aside it is easy to get confused as more established and popular brands will have almost similar products but with a lot of price difference.
This post is to help you decide on what brand’s to buy and what are the factors to take into consideration before you take the plunge into buying the “best deal”? Let’s get into it.
Distributor or Agents
Most mattress companies depend on local distributors to help them sell their mattress. Even in furniture fairs companies like King Koil, Slumberland or even Serta will get a local furniture store (their distributor) to set up a store for them to run the fair. This is important as they are the company that will help you when there is a problem with your mattress. For these local distributors, it is important to check the location of their office/store is as it will determine how fast they are able to attend to your faulty mattress. Some companies will do the after sales service themselves while some would require their distributor to help collect and deliver the mattress back to the factory.
This will determine how long it would take for your faulty mattress to be taken to be repaired and to be returned to you. Imagine a company with its distributor or the mattress factory in another part of town and it takes 1 month for them to complete the repair process while spending 1 month sleeping on the floor.
Reliable Brand with Proven Track Record
The subtitle itself, I am sure you know what this means. But it does not mean not giving the new guys a chance to proof themselves but when you are making decisions to buy expensive mattress, you should consider this point. A company with a long service record will be able to attend to your problems very quickly without much hassle.
New mattress companies tend to drag their service time due to the fact that they have limited resources to attend to all their customer’s needs. I am sure many people would remember the brand called Snoozz that went crazy with marketing and almost everyone knew about them. But where are they now? We no longer see them any more do we?
Fun Fact: Mattress from a reliable brand will not sink or break within the first five years.
Don’t Be Tricked By Great Deals
Like most money games (JJPTR or MBI), some awesome deals may not be as awesome as it seems. They are made to look like a great deal because they have high profit margins on them. We have surveyed furniture fairs to find brand that sounds like are imported mattress but coming up with a full bed set with free pillows, bolsters, mattress protectors and with premium bed sheets to go with it at insanely good bargain prices. But once we tried the mattress, we realize that there are way better mattress sold for that price with better built quality and better materials.
You have worked for the past 5 years with your fingers to the bone and now you are reaping the fruits of your labour. You want to splash on a proper mattress for you and your partner. You will be tempted to look at proper imported mattress like from Hilker and Simmons. We would like to recommend for you to look at more general mattress companies you see in Malaysia such as King Koil. They too have such mattress that is able to compete with those companies. The only difference is these mattresses they do are customized to suit the local. Hilker and Simmons are built to suit the western customer and may not be able to provide you with support you need.
While King Koil’s factory has been in Malaysia since 1983 with a research facility to suit the locals average weight and height, so it would provide the proper chiropractic support. They have store facilities all around Malaysia which would make repairs and services much faster when something goes wrong with your mattress.
These are just a few tips for you to consider before buying your next mattress at a fair. If you wish to have a company with a good service track record, we are always here to help.
