The Bedbuyer story began in 2013 when Perth chiropractor Dr Jon Tan recognised that Australian bed shoppers needed help. When it came to buying a new mattress, his patients were desperate for professional advice and were overwhelmed with the number of options available.
He didn’t know it at the time, but Dr Tan’s idea would grow into one of the country’s most trusted sleep and bedding resources. Today, Bedbuyer takes the title as Australia’s largest bedding website with over 1500 independent mattress reviews.
Through his many years of clinical practice, Dr Tan observed the huge importance of sleep quality and how that related to spinal health and general well-being. He wanted to be able to recommend mattresses to patients from a clinical and health perspective, knowing that he had tested the mattress out himself. Dr Tan began researching the bedding industry and visiting retail stores. By early 2014, he had developed a basic level of knowledge and understanding of the different retail mattresses that were available to Australian consumers. It was around this time, that Dr Tan began writing basic reviews of mattresses assessing things like spinal support and comfort.
By mid 2014, Dr Tan developed his idea further by purchasing the domain name bedbuyer.com.au and launching the Bedbuyer website using Perth website developer Mike Nodding. Dr Tan committed himself to building a solid collection of reviews from different retailers. By August 2015, Bedbuyer had reached 250 independent mattress reviews and was gaining awareness throughout the chiropractic profession as a trusted resource for patients and general consumers.
2016 was a year that saw the online ‘mattress in a box’ market grow significantly, and it wasn’t long before these companies were sending samples to Bedbuyer for expert review. Bedbuyer has now conducted reviews on over 100 mattress in a box products, covering the vast majority of the market. To assist in carrying out the numerous mattress assessments, Dr Tan added an expert review team that included Perth chiropractors Dr Jonathan King, Dr Kathryn Cooper-O’Sullivan, and Dr Nadine Dick. These chiropractors were all hand picked by Dr Tan as being leaders in the chiropractic profession.
So today, Bedbuyer has over 1500 expert mattress reviews listed, and takes the position as the most popular sleep and bedding resource for Australian bed shoppers. Bedbuyer prides itself on producing independent reviews of the highest quality, along with friendly assistance through their email service and live chat. Bedbuyer’s mattress reviews are conducted by health professionals in ‘real life’, contrasting to other mattress review sites that compile a collection of online information to arrive at a conclusion. Bedbuyer can provide information on how a mattress ‘feels’, not just by looking at specifications and customer reviews online.
Bedbuyer welcomes its readers to contact them directly for assistance through their contact us page, or live chat through their Facebook Messenger feature in the bottom right corner. Bedbuyer understands that time is important to people, and so their team endeavours to respond to enquiries as fast as possible.
