Are mattress deliveries impacted by the Coronavirus?
Updated Tuesday April 7th: Along with our delivery partners, BJS Home Delivery, we have put precautions in place alongside government guidelines. Deliveries are currently taking place as normal, to the doorstep, except we are not delivering to anyone that is self-isolating or if you have Corona Virus for safety reasons. Our customers and our teams safety is of utmost importance to us. Our other delivery partners are currently unaffected though there has been a few delays, but please be aware that this could change at any time. We will update you here if anything changes. If you have an active order that is affected, we will contact you directly to advise you of the status of your order.
Are Returns affected by the Coronavirus?
Updated Tuesday April 7th: Due to the recent Coronavirus outbreak, our charity partners have had to make the decision to close their stores nationally. This has resulted in our return process having a delay of 4 weeks’. We understand this may be disappointing, but hope you can understand that we will do everything we can to keep you updated as the situation evolves. We continue to work hard to keep any disruption to a minimum. Once our charity partners continue trading, they will be in touch to arrange a suitable collection date. We will then issue you a full refund once your mattress has been collected.
Tell me more about the Nectar mattress
Nectar makes the most comfortable mattress available, and sells the Nectar directly to you cutting out middlemen and markups. You enjoy the best mattress at a much better price. Nectar is designed for every type of sleeper and arrives backed by our Full Comfort Guarantee and Forever Warranty, plus a full year sleep trial so you can make sure Nectar is right for you. Nectar arrives straight to your door. For a small fee, we'll even remove and recycle your old mattress. Thousands of Nectar customers and over 20 mattress review sites think Nectar is the most comfortable mattress you can purchase. And if you don’t agree, we’ll take Nectar back and refund your full purchase.
What is the 365 night sleep trial?
Nectar provides you with a full year, 365 nights to enjoy Nectar and figure out if Nectar is right for you. If you decide for any reason that Nectar is not your ideal mattress, we’ll remove the mattress from your home (terms apply) and refund your payment 100%. Our trial is 3 times longer than any other we have seen. Fewer than 3% of Nectar sleepers return their Nectar.
What setup do you recommend for the Nectar?
Nectar will be the most comfortable mattress you ever owned if setup properly. Most foundations, bases, including slatted or divans work as well as an adjustable frame. We do not recommend placing your mattress on the floor, plastic base, or home-made foundation.
When can I expect to receive my Nectar?
Currently, Nectar ships to you via our free delivery service or via our Delivery to a Room of Choice, 2 Person Delivery Service (£20). Due to the ongoing Covid-19 safety advice No Contact Delivery is in place and we are not offering a 2 person delivery service at this time.
What is the Forever Warranty?
Forever is a long, long time… and that’s how long we guarantee the construction, materials, quality and durability of Nectar for the original purchaser. If you own a Nectar and sleep on a Nectar we believe Nectar should be the only mattress you ever need. We back up Nectar’s quality in absolute terms, with no wishy washy legal speak, Nectar will last longer than you do if you treat Nectar right.
How do I return my Nectar?
It’s rare, but when it happens we work with you to arrange pickup and refund your money once we’ve received your mattress. Just give us a call or send us an email to get the process started.
Do I get free pillows?
Yes, you do. We send 2 Free Pillows with every Nectar Mattress we sell.
Don't I need to try the mattress?
We don’t believe that 5 minute sleep tests at a retail store are the way to find a mattress you will sleep on for 30% of your life over the next decade or longer. Our 365 night sleep trial makes sure you can make sure Nectar is right for you. You will be trying Nectar on your bed and in your home, where a sleep trial should be.
If Nectar is such a great mattress, why does it cost so much less than others?
It really does not need to cost thousands of pounds to craft a top quality mattress with the best materials. By removing middlemen such as distributors and mattress retailers, and selling directly to you, we can offer you the best pricing possible, basically wholesale pricing. We think it’s crazy to pay thousands of pounds for a mattress.

Where are Nectar mattresses manufactured and shipped from?
Nectar Mattresses are manufactured and shipped from locations within the UK
How can you offer a Forever Warranty while other companies only offer 10 or 15 years?
Nectar is built of better quality materials, on a stronger base. We chose early on to build Nectar to last as long as our customers would want to sleep on Nectar, or longer. There was a time when every quality product was guaranteed for its full life of use, and we don’t believe that ever should have changed. We guarantee the construction and materials of every Nectar mattress for the full life of use of the mattress by the original owner.
What kind of material is Nectar made from?
Nectar’s mattress combines four layers of Smart Sleep technology. The Adaptive cooling cover is constructed with a luxurious knitted fabric. Nectar’s foam layers include the Nectar Smart layer, the medical grade memory foam layer and a 7 zone support layer with castellated comfort and air flow. Nectar is constructed from four special grade performance layers and a uniquely milled cooling cover.
Can the Nectar mattress be folded for transport?
Nectar is not designed to be refolded once expanded. The initial compression process uses roller presses which compress the mattress with over 10,000 lbs per square foot for vacuum packing.

Nectar is independently certified by Certipure, a 3rd party global rating standard, and five other rating groups, to be free from known harmful chemicals and gasses. Nectar is free from Ozone depleters, heavy metals, formaldehyde, Phthalates and Volatile Organic Compounds.
How firm is the Nectar mattress?
Nectar is plush but highly supportive. We rate Nectar at a 6.5-7 on a 1-10 scale if 1 is a feather pillow and 10 is a cement floor. Nectar is designed for perfect long term support with true top layer comfort. We encourage you to give Nectar a try remembering that if you are not fully satisfied we will always be happy to take Nectar back.
How is edge support on the Nectar?
We designed and built Nectar for consistent and firm support edge to edge. Unlike some spring mattresses which sag at the edge, Nectar is always a consistent and perfect firmness edge to edge.
Will Nectar smell or “Off-Gas” when opened?
Nectar foams are exceptional quality and off gassing is limited or non-existent. If there is any faint opening smell of fresh foam this will dissipate quickly and is from new foams being vacuum packed and not from any chemicals. Some people recognise a faint new mattress smell for a few days but this quickly dissipates.

Why is the Nectar mattress so much less than the mattresses sold in retail stores?
Surprisingly, Nectar and the expensive mattresses in a store usually cost about the same amount to produce, but Nectar cuts out distributors and middlemen and sells Nectar to you directly, so you never pay markups.

Payments with Splitit
What is SplitIt?
We are really pleased to be partnered with Splitit, the leading monthly instalment plan service. You will be able to select this payment method at Checkout and choose the plan that suits you. [Learn More - https://www.splitit.com/]
How does SplitIt work?
The Splitit solution enables Nectar to provide instant monthly-instalment payment services to you for a Nectar mattress using your existing credit card.
This means you can buy a Nectar mattress now and pay it back in affordable instalments.
Splitit requests authorisation from your credit card company, reserving the total purchase amount from your available line of credit. Then, each month, according to the payment plan you select, Splitit will collect the instalment amount and request authorisation for the remaining balance—before the current authorisation expires.
The Splitit service, which takes just seconds to operate, is initiated directly from Nectar’s website.
Will using SplitIt affect my credit rating?
No it will not. If you use a Splitit instalment plan there is no impact on your credit score. All the bank sees, are the individual instalment charges each month. If one of your payment authorisations declines, there is still no effect on your credit rating; it is simply a declined charge. The decline would accelerate payment of the remaining balance (unless you provide a different card which is not declined).
Do I have to pay a deposit with SplitIt?
No, not at all - with Splitit you can choose to spread your order total over 3 months and you’ll only need to pay the first instalment when you are placing your order. However, as part of the acceptance process, a request is made for 50% of the cost of the order to ensure your credit availability. This request is made and then reversed a second or two later. The money is not withdrawn from your account but the request may take 2-5 working days to be released from your card dependent on your bank.

Do I pay for shipping?
Nectar Standard Delivery is free to mainland UK addresses. We are not currently able to deliver to addresses in Northern Ireland, some areas of Scotland and all offshore islands, including the Isle of Wight.
How long can I keep the Mattress in the box?
Leaving the Mattress in a compressed state for an extended time may affect the quality of the product as this may not allow the Mattress to fully expand. This would impact the Warranty. We advise you to leave the Mattress in the box for no longer than 90 days.
