  • We use an in-home delivery service to deliver these products. Once you place your order, they will call you to schedule your delivery. Delivery is typically within a few weeks from the day you placed your order, with metro areas usually faster than rural areas. When they deliver your new bed, they will set it up in your bedroom and remove the packing materials. They will even remove your old mattress and box spring, unless you ask them not to.

    *TEMPUR-Cloud® ships via UPS Ground and does not include in-home set-up or mattress removal services.

When our shipping agents deliver your new bed, they’ll also set it up in your bedroom and remove all the packing materials. They’ll even take your old mattress and box spring, if requested.

  • Simply put, for a full decade after you purchase your new Tempur-Pedic®, if the mattress has a defect covered under the warranty guidelines, we’ll replace or repair it. This includes all parts of the mattress. Note that there are certain circumstances that will automatically void the manufacturer’s warranty, including inappropriate foundation use and physical damage.
