Shipping a Mattress with Parcel Plus
If you've ever moved on your own, especially when dealing with stairs, you understand the challenges of transporting a cumbersome mattress. Simplify the process by shipping your mattress and bedding directly to your new home. While shipping a mattress involves more effort than boxing up clothes for a quick shipment, the convenience of avoiding the precarious task of balancing your bed on top of a vehicle during a cross-country move is well worth it. To minimize the cost of shipping your mattress, follow this checklist:
- Measure your mattress: Understand the dimensions and weight of your shipment to plan your budget and select an appropriate box. Weights may vary based on the mattress brand and type.
- Separate bedding material: Before packing your mattress, remove comforters, bed sheets, and pillows, setting them aside to be packed separately.
- Disassemble the bed frame, headboard, etc.: If shipping your bed frame, package and label each component separately for easy reconstruction without concerns about missing parts.
- Safeguard your mattress and box spring with layers of bubble wrap or packing foam: Place them inside a protective mattress case, and then into a cardboard box with a shipping label in an easily accessible location.
