What Our Customers Are Saying

After checking out 3 other bed stores at Westgate wanting to purchase an adjustable bed base I honestly thought I had worked out what I wanted, then I noticed 'thebedpeople'. Darren approached me and asked a few questions then listened to my reasons for wanting a tilt/adjustable base to which he gave me 2 mattresses to try and I remember thinking he had the sale after laying on the Wanaka Plush with the Sleepyhead Swift base. 8 weeks later I’m very pleased with this bed and would not hesitate in recommending Darren at Westgate plus a big thank you to their installers as they were so helpful. Thanks guys.

Gary Osborne

I bought my bed mattresses X 2 from the west gate store from a young gentlemen Darren who was very good at communication and given me a very good service. I am highly impressed and highly recommend. Thank you.

Albany Midas

Got a new bed a couple of months ago from the Westgate store. Darren was an awesome salesman. He was friendly, knowledgeable and not overly pushy. We walked away with a Trinity king sized bed with an amazing deal and free delivery.

Corina Shields

I also wanted to say how good your service was, very personable without being invasive or pushy. Enough info was given when asked. It takes skill to gauge customers and just how much or little 'service' they want or need, I will happily recommend you Jasmine to our friends. Thanks again.
