All the prices are only for reference, Exact price will be based on the latest quotation.

The Wiedeman platform bed by Andover Mills is currently on sale for $137.99. At this price, you will save an amazing 54% off the official listed price of $299.99. However, because there are often seasonal promotions and other marketing deals on offer, make sure you check the latest price before finalizing your purchase so that you can catch any ongoing sales or lock in any deals at the exact time that you are ready to buy. This item also comes with monthly payments as low as $13 per month, as well as free shipping on qualifying orders.

If you are interested in buying protection for this item, you can purchase a pretty comprehensive protection plan for $12.99 that covers accidental stains, incidental damage, unintentional stains, rips, tears, burns, punctures, chips, dents, and water rings. Customers who purchase a protection plan are covered for the above-mentioned damages as soon as their sofa is delivered. However, all customers should keep in mind that damage caused by neglect, improper care, intentional abuse, a failure to comply with the manufacturer’s warranty, or as a result of using the sofa or sectional for purposes other than its intended purpose of sitting on are not covered.


The best way to get an idea of whether or not this bed is for you is to look up an actual customer review. One customer ordered the queen size version of this bed. It arrived within the time frame specified, which was within a few days. This customer noticed a couple of holes in the box and that some of the cardboard was torn before they even opened the box. Once they opened the top and looked inside, they could see some scratches and a dent on part of the frame. Although these are cons of this product, the important thing to note here is that the customer proceeded to contact the company and they arranged another one, hassle-free.

As for the old bed, the company said that the purchaser could give it away, donate it, or trash it. They would send me a new one, and a new one was delivered the following week! How’s that for customer service?

In summary, the bed ships on time and generally arrives before expected. It also comes safely packaged, and is a great buy at the sale price given.


Here are some of the shortcomings of this product.

One customer, on opening their package, found that there were a few minor dings on the frame of the bed. They were nothing that would be noticeable to anyone that was not inspecting the bed, but a little disappointing. The other thing that was disappointing was that with the bed posts, the four balls that sit into the frame are not very well designed, a little on the cheap end, and should have made so that they screw in. They basically just plop into the metal with a little bump to semi secure them. This doesn’t work, and they still spin around.

The bed looks better in the picture. It often has dents in some of the frame, and the ball that goes on the end posts can become dented and then do not fit in the frame. The color is not very nice. Although it is described as bronze or a dull brown, this bed is shiny and has a hint of red in a shiny finish.

Several buyers described the damage to the platform bed, and although you may think those were a few isolated incidents, this type of damage is NOT freight damage. It is due to the way it is packaged. This item is packed in plastic only. The box arrives in good condition, considering there are not any insulating materials used inside of the box, but the bed often has dents and nicks after delivery, and there can even be missing center supports. One customer found that one corner was rough, which would result in tearing at the mattress.


This is a great price for a bed frame of this type, style, color, and especially price. You may worry that it might look cheap, given the price, but the metal is hard, sturdy, and the finish can be quite beautiful. It looks so nice overall. The only negative might be that the instructions can be a little unclear, and there are sometimes delivery and customer support issues. There are also the occasional damage reports, and issues with the actual color being a little off as compared to the online pictures. Despite these issues, however, the manufacturer is known and respected, the bed has received thousands of positive reviews, and the price point set for this item is well within range for even more restricted budgets. If you are looking for a nice, steel frame bed that is easy to assemble and is quick to deliver, comes with respectable customer service and easy and simple returns, the Wiedeman platform bed from Andover Mills is a good product to consider, whether you choose the twin, queen, or full-size version. You won’t be disappointed!
