Bought mattress & box spring from Ortho. It was delivered and set up on a bed frame we have used for years. Within a couple of days it began to sag. After a week of use, sag extreme and getting worse, making cracking noises during the night. Looked under the bed and found broken and disconnected wood with exposed nails in box spring. Visited store immediately. Initially told the box spring could be replaced in about 3 weeks. Said I didn't think the box spring could hold up. Was told a new box spring could be delivered 2 days hence but I would receive notification the afternoon before of a 4-hour delivery window. Received call late the day before of a time between 5 & 9 PM. I told them I could be available between 8 AM and 5 PM, but not after. Next available delivery dates 2nd & 3rd days later, but no time could be specified. Company refused to make any accommodation despite the fact that their product was faulty and potentially dangerous. Other details are available but that is the essence of it.

This complaint is in regards to Ortho's Warranty replacement program. We purchased our mattress on 8/12/08 and have had problems with the sagging mattress causing restless nights & relentless back pain. We notified Ortho Mattress whom sent a independent mattress inspection company formally known as "Integrated Bedding Group" 2060 E. Locust St. suite A, Ontario Ca. 91761, [protected]. They came out completed an incomplete/improper inspection of the mattress & reported back to Ortho that the mattress firmness was consistant. The test performed were not relative to a person sleeping on a bed!
I believe this complaint should be aimed at Integrated Bedding Group as well who conducted a fraudulent inspection.
They conduct such tests to avoid payouts to various mattress companies who utilize them for their warranty services!
However we the consumers do have some recourse by taking action against these deceptive companies by going to the "Federal Trade Commission" the Bureau of Consumer Protection. Their you can go online and file a complaint under the Consumer Protection Tab and by submitting your complaints our voices will be heard in putting such fraudulent companies out of business only after settling our warranty complaints!
Here is their link;
or you can fight back with David Horowitz;
Good luck to us all the "consumer protection league",

On November 28, 2008, we purchased three sets of of Sealy Posturepedic, Dante Park Mattresses for a total of $2874.01. During the first three months, the mattresses were firm, however each month thereafter, they became less comfortable with body indentations becoming apparent and quickly turning into hammocks.We bought this to the attention of Ortho, Paid the $58.00 fee for them to send an inspector out, who found the mattresses to be as stated. They agreed to replace the mattresses if we paid $119.00 ea. for their upgrade and a delivery fee. They take no blame for this particular brand, that didn't last three months. The CEO Kenneth Karmin never responded to either of our letters, and since we refused to pay more money they have as much as said either pay for another set of keep what you have. We
could care less. They refuse to acknowledge that this particular brand is defective. We went to another Ortho store and told them what had happened to our mattresses, and without saying what had happened, we were told the Dante Park had hammock indentations, without us ever mentioning hammock. The physical damage is that our backs are killing us everyday after sleeping in a sunken hole everynight.
I purchased a Simmons mattress in May 2008 from Ortho Mattress Co. After approximately 1 year the mattress, which cost over $1000, began to sag in several areas. It is like sleeping in a valley. You can't get comfortable sleeping on the mattress unless you position yourself in the area where the mattress sags. I called to complain to Ortho. I filled out the required forms and sent in a fee of $58.00. Ortho sent out an "unbiased, objective" outside company to inspect the mattress. The inspection company determined that the mattress was only sagging 1 inch. The inspection process appears to be heavily biased against the consumer. I believe that unless the mattress looks like it was runover by MAC truck they will determine that the mattress is defective. The mattress can sag up to 1.5 inches before Ortho will replace the mattress.
I have also filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). The BBB gives Ortho Mattress Co an F rating. According to the BBB there are 80 complaints on file; Ortho has only answered 4 complaints.
I believe that the mattress business is one step BELOW the used car business. Do yourself a favor and do not buy from ortho and avoid Simmons mattresses. Simmons recently filed for bankruptcy, which is not a surprise.
Earlier this year we moved to a new place. We wanted to get a new mattress as the old one was not comfortable anymore. So me and my husband went to Ortho Mattress to get a new one. We had the worst experience there from the moment we entered all we got from them was lies. We bought a mattress which cost us $1500. When it was delivered we noticed that there was a big dent in the center. E called them and complained.
Well it took them two months to send some one to get it checked. It was so uncomfortable I don't want to recollect how we managed those two months. When the guy came to check it he told us that it was defective. He left and told us to contact support. I did and then again it took them weeks to send us another one. Well nothing changed the mattress which we got was no good in fact it was worse than the previous one. We were really pissed-off now. Couldn't they send a new mattress with no defect? We did not want a refund only what we ordered for but that was to hard for them. It is the worst company I have ever dealt with in my entire life.

We purchased an expensive mattress from Ortho only to have to replace it a year later because it was defective. They exchanged it and the mattress they replaced it with is not as comfortable as the one we had. We called within the required warranty period to have it replaced on a comfort claim. The gave us the run around for over a month and finally my husband talked to Terry who made an offer. He was upset and told he would call back to let her know. She said okay, and when he called back she refused to honor the offer she had made. Now they won't even discuss the issue. They just say we don't do comfort exchanges for this issue.
