Have a different cover, which may include handles or a repositioned zip. We will always advertise all the features contained in all our mattresses on the website, so you will never receive a mattress that doesn’t have something that was advertised. The position of the layers in the mattress will stay the same. The ric-fusion mattress will still be 25cm in-depth, all of which have been made to the exact same specification.

Your rights to end the contract

You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract: If what you have bought is faulty or misdescribed you may have a legal right to end the contract (or to get the product repaired or replaced or a service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back) If you have just changed your mind about the product,  You may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions and you will have to pay the costs of return of any goods. If you have bought products covered by our 30 Nights Trial, you may be able to get a refund if you are within the 30 night trial period. Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out below, the contract will end immediately, and we will refund you in full for any products which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are We have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree too. We have told you about an error in the price or description of the product you have ordered, and you do not wish to proceed. There is a risk that delivery of the products may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control. You have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong including because we have delivered late. Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). For most products bought online you have a legal right to change your mind within 30 days and receive a refund. These rights, under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013, are explained in more detail in these terms. Our 30 Nights Trial (‘the Trial’). Please note, these terms reflect the Trial offered by us to our UK customers, which is more generous than your legal right under the Consumer Contracts Regulations. This Trial does not affect your legal rights in relation to faulty or mis-described. The Trial is intended to give you the opportunity to see if you are happy with the mattress and therefore, we ask for feedback on why you have returned a mattress as part of any return. If we have grounds to believe that you are returning the mattress for reasons other than because you are genuinely dissatisfied with the product, we reserve the right to refuse to accept the return and we reserve the right to refuse to sell our products to you in the future, either through the website or otherwise. Please note that this does not affect your legal rights as a consumer. We reserve the right to refuse the Trial to anyone not operating as a consumer or who is otherwise in breach of these terms. The Trial is only available on purchases via our website and does not cover purchases via other marketplaces and websites. If you notify us in writing that you wish to return a mattress to us no later than 30 days after receiving it, we will arrange for collection at no cost to yourself and will refund the purchase price (excluding any delivery costs) within a reasonable time (no later than 30 days) after we receive it in our warehouse. The refund will be made in the same way used to make the payment. To qualify for a return under the Trial. The products must be returned in the same condition as received or in a reasonable condition; that means no damage, stains, rips or other visible marks or damage. Any damage or stains on the cover, found at the point of inspection in our warehouse, will result in your refund being reduced by £80 to cover the replacement of the cover. To prevent this, we strongly recommend that you clean the mattress cover at home by washing it or sending to the dry cleaners before the collection is arranged. Our returns email outlines all the steps and requests that you take pictures of the mattress before it is returned to us, as your proof of the quality and condition of the mattress and the cover, before our couriers collect it. If there is damage sustained to the mattress in transit, these pictures will be requested by our customer service team as proof that the mattress left your property in good condition and failure to provide these may result in the fee for the cover replacement being taken from your refund. Damage or stains to the mattress itself found at the point of inspection in our warehouse will result in a cleaning fee of £80 being reduced from your refund if the mattress is expected to be cleanable. In case the damage/stains to the mattress are so severe that it is not recoverable, we reserve the right to send the mattress back to you at our cost and refuse your Trial. As above, all returned mattresses are stripped and inspected so we recommend that you clean any stains before returning the product and notify our agents before delivery if any damage/stains are present before shipping. Pictures of the mattress before returning are helpful in case the mattress is damaged by our courier in transit, as they will speed up your refund and act as proof that the goods have left your property in good condition. When processing the return via the returns form online, you will be required to submit images of the mattress and/or the cover, plus any other items that you are returning. This will help speed up the process of returns. Once a mattress has been returned under the Trial, any subsequent mattresses purchased by you will not be covered under the Trial rights. Only one mattress per household can be returned under the Trial. We recommend you trial the first mattress before ordering more. We only offer the Trial for orders in the Mainland UK. It is not our responsibility to keep track of your Trial dates and will not be held responsible for any returns not being reported within the allocated time. It is your reasonability to keep a check on your delivery due dates and collection dates and you must be available on these dates and times as agreed with our couriers either directly or via us. Once our returns team contact you with the instructions on how to prepare the mattress to return and the next steps, our courier will contact you within 1-2 days to arrange collection. If you have missed the contact from the couriers or they have not contacted you for any reason, you need to contact our customer service team immediately. In this situation, we will contact the courier and book the collection for you manually. It is your responsibility to contact us promptly if our courier does not get in touch, or if you miss the contact. You must arrange the collection within 30 days from the date you notify us of your intention to cancel and within a maximum of 30 days before your Trial run out. Failure to arrange the collection within this timeframe will invalidate your right to end the contract and to return the product under the Trial. If you are unhappy with the mattress, we recommend allowing at least a week before your Trial ends so that you have time to arrange the collection for a suitable day within the coming days, within the 30 nights from delivery. We reserve the right to refuse the Trial without prior notice, in certain circumstances we see fit, including but not limited to: Where there is evidence that the mattress is damaged or stained, or otherwise unsuitable for secondary use. Where there is evidence or belief that you are associated with another mattress brand or manufacturer. Where we believe there is any intent on your behalf to misuse the Trial. Where there is any suspicion of misconduct, dishonesty or direct attempt at defrauding or otherwise cheating ric-sleep. Where we have a reasonable belief that you are returning your mattress purely to abuse the discount codes/offers, or are looking to purchase the same model at a discounted rate via our store or an alternative selling platform (whether brand new or otherwise) or If you are found to be swearing, shouting, or otherwise behaving in an abusive manner towards our customer service team. This Clause does not affect your statutory rights. The Trial does not apply to any accessories bought with or separately to the mattress.
