Sleep is an essential part of everyone’s day, which is why every customer visiting a Bensons store is offered a complimentary sleepPRO™ assessment, allowing them to choose a comfort level that is right for them. Mattresses are rated in terms of firmness – soft,medium, firm or extra firm. sleepPRO’s unique technology helps to match customers with their ideal mattress, so they get a perfect night’s sleep, every night.
What’s more, Bensons has a highly skilled buying team that try, test and source the very best beds, mattresses, headboards, pillows, accessories and bedroom furniture for its customers. Our collection of products includes brands such as Slumberland, Air Stream, Tempur, iGel, Staples, Silentnight and Sealy.
We are also fully committed to our sustainability journey, being kinder to the environment with every new product from product materials to production.
Bensons is a proud supplier of Silentnight’s new eco range of mattresses, which contain eco comfort fibres made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. Bensons is also set to incorporate more chemical treatment-free fabrics and new fillings, produced using less CO2, water, and land use, into its new ranges this year and has become a supporter of the British Retail Consortium’s (BRC) Climate Action Roadmap, committing to be Net Zero by 2040, 10 years ahead of the government target.
In addition, Bensons customers also have the chance to recycle their old beds and mattresses via a dedicated service, where they can have their old products taken away on delivery of their new bed. Since the recycling scheme began, Bensons has recycled over 92,000 mattresses. We’ve installed LED lighting in 75% of our stores and increased internal awareness of energy efficiency by running energy behaviour change weeks.
Bensons is proud to have been awarded the BSI Kitemark across a range of products, demonstrating the highest possible quality standards, and has a dedicated manufacturing site based in Huntingdon. All mattresses are guaranteed for a minimum of five years.
It is all of this that really sets us apart in the marketplace.
