Cheap Mattress Delivery

So you've got yourself a new bed frame and now you need to fill it up with a mattress. For a good night's sleep, you might want to do some research and look into the types of mattresses that would suit you best. Your new mattress should accompany you for the years to come. You don't want to get a low quality item just because it was a tad cheaper. On the other hand, overpaying for a standard mattress because you didn't know better isn't the best option, either. Both of these scenarios are extremely common when shopping around for mattresses in brick-and-mortar stores. In these cases, turning to the Internet for help seems like the most logical course of action.

Of course, the biggest problem with shopping around online for mattresses and other home items is the fact that they can take excruciatingly long to deliver. On top of that,most mattress delivery options offered by courier firms or the sellers themselves can get quite expensive, if you don't know where to look.

This is where Packlink comes in. With our extensive experience in the world of shipping, we can help you get your mattress delivered to your front door in as little as one day. Generally speaking, deliveries for larger items are quite problematic for individual customers -- with our help, though, you'll order and collect your new mattress in no time!

A Perfect Night's Sleep Delivered to Your Doorstep

There aren't many things in life more annoying than a bad or broken mattress. It can truly ruin your sleep, and by ruining your sleep, it has a negative impact on the rest of your day. Frequently sleeping in discomfort can lead to many back disorders and injuries, not to mention messing up your mood on a regular basis. If taken care of properly, most mattresses tend to last anywhere between 7 and 10 years. This period can get a lot longer or shorter, depending on the quality of the mattress you purchased, as well as how you go about using it on a daily basis.

It is recommended to get a mattress from one of the top brands, such as Casper, Saatva, or Winkbeds. It isn't often that one needs to go out and buy mattresses, so don't worry if you've never heard of these companies before. They are the gold standard, but it's not like you can't get a decent mattress from other manufacturers. The most important thing is that you know what to look for, which will be covered later on in this article.

There are many advantages to using Packlink when ordering large items, but perhaps the biggest one of them is the fact that thanks to our efficient service, you'll have more agency over the ordering process, regardless of whether it is cost-effective or fast delivery that you're after.

Mattress Delivery and Shipping: Things to Consider

Just like with any large item delivery services, many different factors play into the process of shipping mattresses. The first choice you'll have to face is the retailer. You can choose to buy the mattress directly from the manufacturer, or opt for a big box store, such as B and Q or Home Depot. Many people go straight for the manufacturer, and while buying straight from the source usually makes the most sense, it can turn into a logistics problem if your desired mattress company doesn't have an office or store in your vicinity. In these cases, finding a big box store that does online orders is the best course of action.

Secondly, the speed and price of your mattress's delivery will also depend on its size and other specifications. Generally, the larger and heavier the item, the costlier the delivery service will be. The fragility of your mattress also plays a role, albeit it's not as major. A pocket spring mattress is at a higher risk of getting damaged in transport than a memory foam mattress because the springs can burst through the material and stick out. Most of the time, it's not a big deal and shouldn't affect the prices, but some courier services are adamant about such details, especially if you request an express delivery.

Mattress Purchasing Tips

Buying a mattress is not as easy as you might think at first glance. As we mentioned earlier, the quality of your rest over the next couple of years (or even the next decade) will depend on that particular purchase. At Packlink, we specialize in quick and efficient parcel delivery, but we're no strangers to the perils of uncomfortable bedding, either. Check out this handy list of tips to keep in mind when buying new mattresses:

  • Consider mattress recycling. Not many people are aware of mattress recycling programs that allow individuals to give their old mattress to a recycling point so that it can be salvaged and repurposed. Most frequently, companies recycle used and worn-out mattresses to repurpose the foam and other materials in other products, such as carpets or foam padding. The neat thing about mattress recycling is that more often than not, participating in such a program will result in you getting a hefty discount on your new mattress! If you want to save money beyond mere shipping savings, look into mattress recycling options in your area.
  • Double-check the trial period. Most of the best mattress manufacturers specify a trial period within which you can test the mattress, and should something be wrong with it, you can return it and receive a full refund. For example, any Casper mattress you buy comes with a 100-day-long trial period during which you can truly "get to know" the product and decide whether or not it is a good fit for you. The length of your trial period is important, so pay special attention to it when shopping around. A week or two is not nearly enough time to decide whether or not a particular mattress is a sound investment or not.
  • Consult with your partner. This may be a pretty straightforward, but it's worth mentioning nonetheless. Some people swear by memory foam mattresses, but for others, they feel strange. If you share your bed with a partner, make sure that the two of you are on the same page in terms of your sleep preferences and expectations.

-Be meticulous in measurements. When replacing a mattress, most people keep their old bed frame intact and simply replace its contents. There is nothing wrong with that, but you should keep in mind that getting the measurements of your bed correctly is of utmost importance, especially if you're trying to order a custom mattress. The dimensions you provide should be exact, as even an inch one way or the other can render a mattress useless.

  • Try out a range of mattress types. Learning your preferences is key, especially if this is your first time buying a mattress on your own. Don't settle for a pocket spring simply because this is the only mattress type you've ever known. Try out different variations, such as memory foam or hybrid mattresses in order to find out which one of these is truly going to provide you with the perfect night's sleep you've been looking for.
