How To Get A Good Adjustable Electric Bed in 2024

You’ve made the decision to buy an Adjustable Electric Bed in 2024. There are a lot of choices and options out there and it can be a bit confusing. Deciding what your most desirable requirements are for your situation before you start searching is a wise use of your time. To help begin the process these are the most common considerations my customers are looking for:

  • Bed Bae & Mattress Quality.
  • What is the Warranty or Guarantee.
  • Bed Functionality.
  • Price and Value for money.
  • Service Provided by the Product provider or retail outlet.

Bed Bae & Mattress Quality?


If good quality materials and components are used to construct a well-designed adjustable electric bed, the longer the bed will usually last, and you are less likely to encounter problems. Most people looking to purchase an adjustable bed are looking to ease ailments and get a better night’s sleep, so a quality and reliable bed gives much peace of mind.

Solace Sleep Mattresses are constructed with higher quality materials than most other mattresses. Our mattresses on contain components for your support, comfort and to keep you cooler while you sleep (a cooler night’s sleep means a more thorough night’s sleep). We DON’T use cheap filler (the most common culprit for poorer quality mattresses forming holes, diverts and worn areas) in any of our mattresses.

Adjustable Electric Bed - New Guide 2024

A basic Solace Sleep Long Single Adjustable Bed Base has been tested with and rated to carry 385kg’s of weight. Significantly more capacity to cate for the heaviest person I have ever encountered. Our beds’ decks are constructed using marine ply for strength, durability and to reduce noise. Our specially designed German motors have had testing replicated for 25 years od repetitious use. Our OKIN motors have a 25-year full guarantee (15 years more than most of our competitors in Australia) to cater for this workload. This gives many of my customers much peace of mind that a quality motor is less likely to have issues.


Adjustable Bed Base Functionality

Adjustable Bed Functionality

  • Does the adjustable part of the bed move in small increments (if it does you will have more ability to customize suitable sleeping & recreational positions).
  • Are there programable memory positions available on the bed’s remote control? Once an ideal elevated sleeping position has been determined you don’t want to lose or forget it this position. Nobody wants to fiddle with remote control for 10-15 minutes to get your sleeping position ideal. Being able to push a button to take you to your ideal sleeping or recreational position after a long day is comforting, reassuring and saves precious resting time.
  • Does the bed company or retail outlet provide sufficient mattress choices for you to find a good support and comfortable mattress for you.
  • Is there a backup option (a sleep trial or other) should your initial mattress choice not work out the way you expected where a mattress can be switched out.

What Is The Warranty For Adjustable Beds In Australia?

Adjustable Bed warranty

Ultimately, the warranty or guarantee offered by the bed manufacturer or sales outlet will provide you a good indication of the bed & mattress’ quality and how long you can reasonably expect the bed and mattress to last. Many electric beds and mattresses are manufactured down to a price as opposed to being constructed up to a quality standard. The devil is the detail of a bed or mattress’ warranty so seeking the relevant information or asking good questions is important if you desire a quality bed. Many electric beds have different warranty time limits or conditions on the various components of the bed. E.G:

Case Study: An Adjustable Bed on the market comes with a 10-year warranty on the bedframe, 5 years on the deck (the functional adjustable mechanism of the bed), 5 years on the mattress and 2 years on the bed motors. It’s a wise idea to obtain the specific warranty times for each component as I have encountered many disgruntled customers who have asked a bed provider what the warranty is and have been given an incomplete answer, saying 10 years. In this instance leaving the customer to assume that a 10-year warranty applies for the bed deck, mattress & motors also, when in this instance these components of the bed all have a shorter warranty.

Crucial information to obtain upfront or questions to ask are:

Is the warranty provided a full warranty or a limited warranty?

A limited warranty is where depreciation or wear & tear is taken into consideration regarding product failure or fault. You may end up being required to contribute to the cost of repairs (you would expect to be covered) of a fault after a certain amount of time has gone by after purchase. A full warranty or full guarantee means the fault is fully repaired or replaced with no contribution expected from the consumer.

Will the organisation you purchase a bed be around to service future warranty claims?

We have all felt the cost-of-living crisis in the last two years or so, understandably the average consumer doesn’t realize the cost of conducting business has increased just as much and, in some cases, even more. We have observed some adjustable electric bed providers exit the market in the last six months and we expect more providers (especially the smaller providers) to be under much financial stress and will be unable to continue trading in the next 12-18 months. In most cases, if the business you purchased your bed from has shut down or ceases trading, the warranty that came with the bed you purchased vanishes into thin air.

How do you reduce this risk or protect yourself from this happening?

Make an informed choice when purchasing your electric adjustable bed and do a little homework. Does this bed that I’m purchasing come with a quality warranty or guarantee that can be met? Am I buying a quality bed and mattress that is fit for purpose and my needs? Does the business I’m purchasing this bed from have a strong financial position to address warranty claims or meet future servicing issues?

Who do I call if there is a problem and who is responsible for resolving any repairs or servicing issues?

Big retail stores stocking multiple adjustable bed and mattress brands have varying arrangements with their suppliers regarding warranty claims. I’ve had many conversations with disgruntled customers who have stated after making purchases elsewhere stating they feel like they’re a tennis ball in a game of return serve between the retailer and the manufacturer as each direct the customer back and forth to each other regarding responsibility for a product fault or warranty issue.
