The year is 2011 and the American and European economies are in recession. Many businesses, both retail and manufacturing have suffered the results of the credit crunch. With unemployment rising, taxes rising, fuel and the cost of living escalating it is not surprising that luxury items that worried buyers can do without are the obvious casualties. Although an adjustable bed is a luxury item it is also in many cases an essential purchase and can be surprisingly inexpensive.
It is widely assumed that an adjustable bed is an extremely expensive bed. This is the result of a handful of unscrupulous companies. These companies sell their beds by obtaining leads through various methods such as competitions in a magazine to win something. The next thing you know, you have a pushy sales guy in your home selling you an adjustable bed at an extortionate price. I have heard of people paying over three thousand pounds for a single adjustable bed. If you have been the victim of this practice or have experienced a relative get ripped off then feel free to add your story and warning by clicking the comments at the end of this article.
