orders & delivery

how much is delivery and how long does it take?

Our standard Irish mainland delivery – Mon to Fri, 8am to 7pm - is FREE.
Your order will arrive within 5 working days.
Please note: Delivery will be made to your ground floor doorstep only.

do I need to be home for delivery?

Our couriers require a signature when they deliver, so yes, someone will need to be at home. If you do miss your delivery don't worry, our courier will retry over the next two business days.
For help re-scheduling your delivery day, just contact us. Our couriers are able to make changes to your delivery date once they've made a first attempt.

will all products in my order be delivered at the same time?

We do try to make sure your items get to you at the same time, but unfortunately our products aren't always shipped together as different couriers may be used depending on the product. We do give you a tracking code for each item as soon as your order has been shipped so you can trace your eve purchases.

why do you use different delivery couriers?

Due to the size and weight difference we use different couriers to keep the delivery cost as low as possible.

will the delivery courier call before delivery?

Unfortunately the couriers will not call before the delivery as they are not provided with work phones.

can I provide additional delivery details?

You won't be able to add any additional delivery details once your order is submitted, so make sure you enter the right address and contact number at checkout (we won't unleash the boogey man on you but it may be tricky to change your details once your order's been confirmed). If you think you've made a mistake, contact our Customer Services team at hello@evesleep.co.uk or give them a buzz on +353 1907 9660

can you make a custom-sized mattress?

No, we don't offer custom-sized mattress, we are sorry. Please get in touch with us if you have further queries.

which courier do you use?

We use Yodel, Hermes, UK Mail, DX, Panther and DHL.

what's the difference between buying an eve mattress online and buying on Amazon?

Amazon is an independent retailer of our products. When purchasing through Amazon you wouldn't be eligible for the one hundred night trial as all Amazon orders follow their 30-day return policy. You'd also need to contact Amazon directly for all after care regarding your mattress – as this wouldn't be able to be done through us.

payments & refunds

when will my refund be processed?

As soon as your eve product is on the way back to us we'll process your refund to the account you paid with. The money should be with you within three working days.

can you refund via cheque?

Unfortunately, we don't use cheques. Due to security reasons, we are only able to refund via your original payment method. Just give us a call on +35 3190 79660.

how will I pay for my order?

That’s entirely up to you. You can pay with credit or debit card, or with PayPal.

what type of cards do you accept?

We accept Visa Credit, Visa Debit, Visa Electron, MasterCard and American Express.

returns

what is the return process?

Simply email your return request to hello@sleepeve.ie, and a member of our customer support team will assist you further. You can also see the return policy for our eve products on our handy refunds and return page.

do I have to pay for the return?

Absolutely not. We offer free returns on all eve products returned within the Republic of Ireland (and actually also within the UK, in case you happen to be returning from across the border!).

can I exchange my mattress?

We recommend that you to carefully measure your bed frame to avoid getting the wrong size mattress, but in case you did get the wrong size it's no biggie – we allow you to exchange your product within the one hundred night trial. If your mattress has already been unpacked, a shipping and handling fee of €30 will be applied.

who will remove my mattress if I decide to return it?

You can just sit back and relax while our two-man collection company will come and pick up the mattress from your bedroom. It’s completely hassle-free.

do I need to keep any of the boxes?

You don't need to keep your mattress box – as it will be impossible for you to get it back in there unless you’re some sort of super human! For other products, they can be returned in any box you like, but it might be easier for you to pack it in the original one it came in.

how do I prepare my mattress for return?

You don't have to worry about that - our collection company will take care of the packing for you.

what is the return process if I order through Amazon?

When you place an order through Amazon they are responsible for managing the processing and shipment of your order. Unfortunately this means that we won't have your order details. As Amazon are an independent retailer, we are unfortunately not able to handle any issues associated with orders placed through their website – including returns.

about the mattress

what is the eve mattress made of?

The mattress is made up of four layers:

A base layer of high density foam: this is what gives your mattress support and durability.
A mid layer of open-celled foam: this layer encourages air flow, is responsive, a bit bouncy and highly durable, providing the perfect sandwich layer between the base and top layers.
A top layer of next-generation memory foam: engineered to give total body support so you don’t get that ‘stuck’ feeling often associated with traditional memory foams, along with cooling properties so you don’t overheat as you sleep.
A cover lovingly hand-sewn in the UK: this hypoallergenic outer cover protects your eve and gives you a luxuriously soft surface to lie on... it looks pretty awesome too.

how does the eve mattress feel?

From our years of experience selling over 75,000 mattresses all over the world, we learned that our layered construction provides the ultimate in support and comfort for the majority of people – without being too firm, or too soft. We believe we have engineered the ultimate in sleeping perfection.

The mattress provides the comfortable and supportive qualities of memory foam, but with an added feeling of ‘bounce'. It's also extremely breathable, offering a tranquil night's sleep. It’s suitable for sleepers weighing up to 18 stone (114kg). For couples, a combined weight of 36 stone (228kg) is the recommended limit.

why do you only sell one memory foam mattress?

Finding the right mattress used to be complex. With hundreds of options, impenetrable jargon and pushy salespeople it was easy to get lost.

We set out to fix this with a radically simple approach. We designed one memory foam mattress - the best - made from the highest quality materials.

how is the eve mattress different to traditional memory foam mattresses?

The mattress addresses the two main complaints of traditional memory foam mattresses: that you sink into them and get ‘stuck’ into a position finding it difficult to move; and that you overheat as you sleep.

The mattress' next-generation memory foam top layer is springy, so while it moulds around your body, supporting pressure points, it also springs back quickly making it easy to move around on. The middle-layer foam is a newly-developed specialist foam, made using highly open-celled technology that makes it 30 times more breathable than other foams of its kind. This breathability regulates temperature, and ensures that you sleep comfortably.

can the mattress help with back pain?

We haven’t conducted our own medical tests to establish this, but many of our customers with back problems claim to have great results when sleeping on the eve mattress. You can read some customer reviews here.

how deep is the mattress?

The mattress is 24cm (or 10 inches) deep. Why? In our experience this is the perfect depth.

The mattress will fit standard UK/EU sheet sizes.

what safety certifications does the mattress have?

All materials used in the eve mattress have certifications to ensure they're safe and non-toxic. You can rest assured that your eve mattress is 100% health and safety compliant. All foams used in the mattress are CertiPUR® certified, which means that your mattress doesn't contain any carcinogens or harmful nasties.

CertiPUR® also sets stringent rules when it comes to off-gassing, meaning the mattress conforms to the highest safety standards here too. The fabric cover is OEKO-TEX® certified, ensuring it meets one of the highest and safest textile standards. And the mattress complies with the British Standards for fire safety for mattresses (BS 7177:2008 + A1:2011 Low Hazard). All in all, you could say the mattress is pretty safe. And very certified.

is the mattress suitable for children?

The mattress is suitable for little ones aged three and over. Ours is a safe product and we're happy to recommend it for those over the age of three. For children younger than this we would recommend a specially designed baby/infant mattress.

will I feel my partner's movement/motion?

Our aim is to support each sleeper individually in order to get the best night's sleep possible. The eve mattress provides more movement isolation than a traditional memory foam mattresses. Therefore, you shouldn’t feel your partner move during the night.

is the mattress environmentally friendly?

Our aim is to support each sleeper individually in order to get the best night's sleep possible. The eve mattress provides more movement isolation than a traditional memory foam mattresses. Therefore, you shouldn’t feel your partner move during the night.

setting up your mattress

why does the mattress come in a box?

Many of our customers can’t believe it when they receive their mattress in a box. We've invested in a special technology that rolls and vacuum packs the mattress, compressing it into the smallest of spaces. We do this for three reasons:

Delivering your mattress compressed into a box costs us a fraction of what it would cost to deliver a full-sized mattress. We pass these savings on to you, the customer.

Reducing the amount of packaging involved in shipping the mattress means we reduce our impact on the environment. And because it’s compressed, eve deliveries require fewer transport journeys – saving on fuel emissions.

Moving a mattress around your house is hard work. By compressing it into a box, we make the process of getting the mattress to your bedroom that little bit easier.

do I have to keep the box?

It will be impossible to fit the mattress back in the box unless you’re some sort of super-human – so you don't need to keep the box, even if you end up returning the mattress.

how big is the box?

We pack the mattress into a super-portable, beautifully designed box. Take a peek inside for some inspirational quotes on the theme of sleep...

The dimensions of the cardboard box are 43cm x 43cm x 110cm for sizes up to double and 51cm x 51cm x 107cm for king and above. This makes it a little more manageable to manoeuvre around.

The mattress weighs from 23kg for a Single to 67kg for a Super King.

does the mattress work with all bed bases?

It certainly does! We do however recommend checking the condition of your bed base before using it with an eve mattress, as worn out bed-bases can potentially impact the performance of a new mattress over time. Whilst the eve can be used with any kind of bed base, a wooden slatted or platform bed offers the most support. Box springs are designed to support innerspring mattresses and can change the way a foam mattress feels - often creating a ‘softer’ feel.

If a slatted base is being used, we recommend that the gaps do not exceed 7cm. It is also important that slats are secured, evenly spaced and rigid.

If using the eve with an adjustable bed, we recommend leaving your eve flat when not in use!

can I put the mattress on the floor?

Using an eve on the floor will not impact its feel, however we do recommend propping it on its side regularly to allow the mattress to breathe, as the floor will not have the same ventilation properties as a bed base.

will I be able to get it back in the box or roll it back up again?

We use special machines to roll up the mattress in the box. We'd be very impressed if you could get it back in there!

how long can I keep it in the box for?

The mattress can be kept in the box up to one month. The longer it is kept in the box the longer it will take to recover it’s proper shape and structure though.

when can I start sleeping on my new mattress?

You can sleep on it straight away. It takes about 4 - 5 hours for it to settle to its full height.

does the foam in an eve mattress smell?

The eve mattress does have initial smell you may notice on the day of delivery but this totally normal and harmless. After airing for the first few days it will start to fade and should completely disappear after a few weeks.

maintenance

how can I clean my mattress?

The cover has a removable top panel which can be washed at 40⁰c. We recommend spot cleaning any other areas of the cover.
Memory foam itself cannot be washed, sponged or dry cleaned. There is a high risk that soaking with water or other cleaning fluids will cause irreversible damage and will invalidate your warranty.
Vacuum regularly (using the upholstery attachment) paying particular attention to the piping where dust can settle. You can find full care details here.

do i need to turn my eve mattress

You won't need to turn your mattress over, ever. In fact, it only works properly one side up. We do suggest you rotate your eve lengthways every 30 days for the first year to maintain proper shape and to extend its lifespan. Avoid dragging your mattress and place it gently into position when moving it to prevent damage.

can I use an electric blanket or heated cover on the mattress?

While you can use an electric blanket with your eve, we recommend using an electric blanket that goes over a sheet rather than under. Remember to ensure that your electric blanket is less than 10 years old and in good working condition.

can I use a hot water bottle on the mattress?

We recommend that you pay attention when using a hot water bottle to avoid water leaking onto the foams. While water bottles can be used with an eve, the warmth may soften the feel as it can activate the visco foam within the core.

can I still use a mattress protector on the mattress?

We've actually designed our own eve mattress protector. It's made out of organic cotton, with a fully waterproof Neotherm® membrane base layer – which is great for protecting the mattress from any spillages.

trial & warranty

how does the 10-year guarantee work?

what’s the 100 night, hassle-free returns policy?

(And don’t worry – you don’t need to get the mattress back into the box to return it!)

how long should it take to get used to a new mattress?

We like to compare it to a brand new pair of shoes. Sometimes your mattress needs a small amount of time to adapt and soften to your body. We recommend trying your eve mattress for 100 nights.

what is the returns process?

Email your return request to hello@sleepeve.ie and we’ll arrange a two-man collection team to come and collect the mattress from your bedroom. They will contact you directly to arrange for a day and a three-hour collection window that works for you. No need to worry about packing – they'll handle everything for you.
