They spend hours playing in them with loads of hidey holes and you can even get cabin beds with curtains and desks. There are lots and lots of different types available now.
Why am I rambling on about the different types?
When we collect and deliver your bunk beds or Cabin beds they are normally already dismantled because there replacement is in place or its surplus to requirements so its been in the loft or shed for a while. Thais great from our point of view all flat pieces of wood that are easy to move and load, also quite easy to strap into the van for safe transport.
From the new owners point of view, when it gets delivered it looks like a puzzle from the krypton factor, hundreds of pieces all nicely bundled, all the fixings in one bag, where do you start?, you have to reassemble these and at that point this can be a daunting task.
Our advice regarding buying and selling these types of beds is simple.
1) if you still have the original instructions for assembly, keep them and pass them onto however has now purchased this piece of furniture, I know simple and straight forward, but in reality not many people keep them.
2)When you buy a bunk bed or cabin bed try to find out from the seller what make and model it is, the assembly instructions can quite often be found online in the form of a pdf document (free to download) or you could ring the manufacturer (if they are still trading) and ask them to send you a copy.
3) Last but not least when you as the seller dismantle the bed buy some small label and mark up which piece is which. Go through the alphabet so an A would match an A on another piece of the bed. This clearly indicates which piece go together and makes it easy for whoever has bought this bed to assemble.
None of this really affects the delivery of your bed by cheap ebay couriers but it certainly makes the selling and buying process at lot smoother
