FAQ's & Delivery

I don't feel confident about purchasing online?

We still enjoy providing good old fashion customer service. We have made thousands of headboards over the years and have sent them all over the country.  Our headboards are well packaged and we have had very few issues over the years.  Typically the freight companies provide customer insurance if the product is damaged or loss.

Please fill out the contact form and we can contact you, and discuss your concerns. If you prefer, we can process your order manually.

How do I measure my bed height?

Measure from the floor to the top edge of your mattress.

How do I know if it will fit my bed?

All our headboards are made to order so we can make them especially to fit your bed.  The headboard bolt positions are standardised in New Zealand.   If you have a bed from overseas or a custom bed please contact us.
