I'm Karl, Founder and owner of ausbeds. When growing up in my families furniture stores I noticed that the mattress solution that was available was less than elegant, and it really annoyed me. I thought there should be a better way.
1. The sales people didn't understand the product, mattresses were commonly referred to as "sausages" by the sales staff. They would say "nobody knows what's in them, they're just like sausages".
2. There were overwhelming amounts of choice.
3. Some mattresses were not lasting long and leaving large "dips".
4. Long wait times.
I've worked on these issues for the last ten years. Ausbeds is my solution. I now understand the product entirely. This allows me to reduce the choices as to make the process simple. I use a system that predicts which mattress will fit your body by using your weight and sleeping style as a guide.
My goal is to make the "Sienna" mattress fitting system perfect. I believe that fitting a mattress should be an exact science. Nobody in the world has done this yet, however, I believe I will be able to do this, do you want to help?
If you decide on my system for choosing your mattress, please answer my survey questions which you will receive after purchasing.
I don't claim this system will always work. It's pretty good, but perfect it is not.
If you buy one of my beds, and you wake up feeling like the bed isn't the right "fit" for you, let me know dammit! But please, give it two weeks, a mattress can be like a pair of new jeans, a bit stiff at first, you need to wear them in a bit before they get really comfy.
Returns are easy because I use my own staff for deliveries. Check out my really smooth returns page right here!
