I bought my bed here with a good friend (and hopefully more). The captain's bed contains three drawers which is ample space for storage as storage was a major issue for me. Patrons can customize their selection of finish types and choice of headboard. Turnaround time from when order was placed to delivery is approx. two weeks. Thankfully, they deliver on weekends, which is convenient for people who work during the business week. Upon arrival, the headboard is separate which the deliver men assemble by attaching it to the bed. Their mattresses are from Sealy which is known amazing for the softness and volume. I order the Serene Sky mattress from Sealy. Unlike IKEA beds, Gothic Cabinet Craft beds do not sit low on the floor, which I am happy to be sleeping above the floor. It looks good in my bedroom as I feel my bedroom has a complete make-over. I am now able to sleep comfortably and awake with renewed spirit where I am refreshed. A new chapter in my life has begun.
A phone call from Gothic Cabinet to patrons is required for a confirmation of the delivery date (as per the sales invoice's fine print) and six-hour window time either a day before or two days before the actual delivery date. My delivery window was from between 10am to 3pm, which thankfully, they arrived early at 11am, which was very prompt, as I did not have to spend my entire Saturday waiting for an eternity of their arrival. Since the frame of the bed is made of wood, the stench of the wood's finish or varnish will linger for at least five days which makes it difficult for one to obtain a good night's sleep. An open window is highly desired.
I received the frame and mattress in good condition but the headboard has a stain or imperfection, which is visible to the eye. Service from the administrative office is on order for a paint touch-up.
N.B. The deliver men are NOT obliged by their job to remove and dispose patrons' old bed including mattress, box spring and frame. However, "money talks" where for $20.00 per piece the deliver men will remove and dispose which is additional to gratuity for delivery and assemble of new bed. I paid $70.00 in cash for removal and disposal of my former bed which the $10.00 was for gratuity. A non-refundable deposit is required for work to begin on a customized order of any bed. The final balance is required in certified bank check or cash format only as per the sales invoice's fine print.
