Introducing The Bed Factory, Leamington Spa
The Bed Factory is a fellow Leamington-based family business owned and run by Anthony and Halima Baker. With 30 years in the industry, it’s fair to say the husband-wife duo and their team know everything there is to know about quality beds, bed frames and beyond!
They offer everything you’d expect from your usual bed and furniture retailer, but their forte is helping people with back problems (supplying medical foam beds, support chairs and riser recliner chairs). They’re all about ‘making people comfortable.’
While based in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, The Bed Factory deliver all over the country. You might have spotted their vans out and about.
Dilemma – thriving with furniture but short of space
In September 2017, The Bed Factory got in touch with Squab Storage. Their shop in Leamington Spa (6,000 sq. ft. across three floors) was (and often is) stocked to capacity with beds, sofa beds, bedroom furniture, wardrobes, and household furniture. When a customer made a tailored order, which wasn’t on display (a special size, for example), The Bed Factory didn’t have the storage space for the orders as they arrived from the manufacturer.
We might know a company who can help…
Squab’s commercial storage to the rescue!
As commercial storage suppliers to businesses of all sizes, we were able to provide The Bed Factory with dedicated storage space. Deliveries made by the manufacturer could go straight to our Leamington Spa site, ready for The Bed Factory to collect and deliver to their customers.
Even better? Not only could we provide the storage facilities – we could also manage the deliveries on their behalf.
How the partnership works
- When a customer makes a custom order, the manufacturer produce it and deliver it to Squab Storage
- The Squab team offload the order, store it in the secure facilities and alert The Bed Factory about the delivery
- Safe in the knowledge the delivery has arrived, The Bed Factory then contact the customer to arrange a suitable delivery date
- The Bed Factory collects the order from Squab’s Leamington Spa headquarters and makes the delivery to their customer(s)
What are the benefits?
We asked Anthony about the benefits of using Squab’s commercial storage:
“Squab Storage offer an excellent service. The fact they offload deliveries on our behalf and safely store them away in our dedicated storage location means we don’t need have our team on-site when deliveries are made. Squab managing the handling of goods on our behalf saves us time and makes the whole process very efficient. They even email the signed delivery notes over to us, so we can arrange prompt delivery for our customers.”
Since then? Well, The Bed Factory has become part of our furniture! We currently receive 4-5 deliveries a week on their behalf and we look forward to working with the friendly Leamington-based business as they continue to grow.

“We would wholeheartedly recommend Squab’s commercial storage to other local businesses. As a family business ourselves, we enjoy working with a business with the same values.
