Dont buy, return your bed and contact Aldi
Bed seemed ok until I noticed how weak the slats are. Im a light weight, so is my wife. So Aldi are we expected to buy a seperate decent bed to be intimate on. I own a great mattress but the bed doesnt cut it. Slats broken after one intimate session. If either of us were hurt Id be suing Aldi for damages. For an extra five cents a slat you could of supplied decent ones. Ill be returning the piece of crap and it wont be going back in the box. You can dismantle the bed yourselves. Do not buy this piece of crap.
Purchased in July 2019 at Aldi Gladstone for $70.00.
Not long after purchasing this bed the side frame cracked and the middle footing broke and wouldn’t support the bed making it sag in the middle. The footing on one side constantly slipped underneath giving it no support. Off to the dump. That’s what you get when you buy cheap beds.
Great value, top notch finish. Quick and easy to assemble.
Doesn't creak or move and simple to assemble. We are very happy with this purchase. Highly recommended. We paired it with the also mattress. The instructions were simple and easy to follow.
Dont have intercourse on this bed
Put the bed together had problems with the slats but finally got it together put the mattress on we had intercourse that night after 2 mins the slats broke the side frames bent & the mattress ended up on the floor packed it up & took it back to Aldi & was asked if someone had been jumping on it & i told them no my partner & had intercourse & it broke their response was oh it wasnt designed for that. Well what was it designed for beds are not only for sleeping on....

So far so good!
So far, so good for us. The bed was purchased a week ago in desperation to not have a noisy creaky wooden bed base, and the budget was key. For $300 this bed is perfectly acceptable although it's certainly not a life long purchase. A real temporary measure.
We purchased before reading the reveiws from the last run of beds too and panicked before building it up but decided to give it a go and give the designers of the thing the benefit of the doubt.
The building process was indeed challenging with the center support beams running width ways not...

Do not buy this bed frame
Slats are all broken in one corner so the mattress falls in and can not sleep on the bed. Slats are also broken at the feet end but not as noticeable. Totally regret buying this bed. Aldi mattress is also uncomfortable.
Purchased in March 2018.
I regret I did not read this reviews in time as it happens the same. After time the bed frame collapsed in the middle with the bed slats bending and not be able to use it. Unfortunately by the time I went to get a refund the warranty was expired so I am stuck with a bed frame that I cannot use or fixed. Waste of money!
Slats collapse too easily
Like others, our slats fall out from the sides when you sit on the bed about a quarter of the way from the bedhead.
We bought this base with the mattress for our guest room but never assembled it until we were expecting a guest. The base assembled quite well but as soon as our guest sat on it to lie down a bunch of slats fell out from the side panel where she sat.
We tested it a few days later and it was the same. Tried changing the slats around, pulling them closer to the collapsing edge but the side panel bows out so the slat ends pop o...ut of the slots. Being totally useless as a base I looked at how proper slat bed bases were designed and made, and they all had additional support under the slat ends. Apart from having to buy a proper bed base, not only is this Aldi bed base a waste of money, we'll also have to pay to take it to the tip. Stung thrice. The mattress seems quite comfortable though. I wish we had assembled the bed and tested it immediately after buying so I could take it back for a refund.

Aldi QS Fabric Bed Frame
Purchased for $229 from Aldi Brandon Park. 2 months later when moved to new house, found the metal bars were missing drilled holes and could not be put together. Inconvenient as I cannot lift on my own to return. Annoying to find other people experienced exact same issue. At least my store Mgr has told me I will get full refund when I return. Strangely, my son bought one when price reduced for $80 and put it together without issue. I guess the quality control out of that factory was a little hit and miss. Always keep your receipt. I take a picture and upload to Dropbox. Very handy when things go wrong.
Wrong parts, no quality control, no care
Purchased 2x queen size fabric bed frames, drove them 5 hours to the holiday house, went to assemble them and found one of the key components (in both beds) was wrong (basically three of the four rear side panels were the same as the front ones and so the holes did not line up). End result the beds cannot be put together at all.
To have two beds, with the wrong parts is completely unacceptable. From googling the issue, it's obvious we are not the only ones.
Never trust such "special buys" from Aldi ever again. And never try assembling them far from the shop, as you will probably have to return them.
never buy an aldi bed
bought the bed. took it home. poor labelling of parts. 2 rods had some holes missing. we could not put bed together. aldi has no after sales service. it is handled by another company - uncle bill's. rang them. they have got all the paperwork but it MAY take another week or MORE for them to get back constructively on the complaint. MAYBE LONGER to actually get some constructive resolution? It seems there are many others ahead of us in the queue. we expected more of Aldi. the store told us to wait as they could only take a return. We d...on't have a car so that is not an option. we complained to ALDI on facebook but their customer service have not got back. We asked for someone to troubleshoot the problem and fix it. for this market there are real online bed in the box retailers who are cheaper but we trusted ALDI. They have lost a lot of goodwill with us. We still shop there but feel poorly done by. We will warn al others to be careful about the special buys as there appears to be poor quality control on these products and ALDI gets away with accepting returns. But this item is too bulky and we nearly died taking it back without a car.
Questions & Answers
I have had the bed for 2 months in an airy room and the fabric still exudes a fishy chemical smell , is there anything I can do to get rid of the smell ?
