HOW TO MOVE A MATTRESS
While the idea of having to move your bulky mattress may seem impossible, we’re here to make it easy for you. As long as you make the right preparations, moving the big stuff in your home is nothing to stress about. Read on for 3 easy steps to move your mattress!
RENT A TRUCK
We do not recommend moving your mattress with an average-sized vehicle or even a truck. Trying to tie a load on a car without experience is extremely dangerous for you and other drivers. You can rent a truck in most states for about $20 a day and this route is much safer.
BUY A MATTRESS COVER
A mattress cover keeps your mattress clean and damage-free during your move. Many other people have used your rental car for you, you will want to make sure it is not exposed to dirt/pollutants while also preventing hooks or cracks. You can pick it up at your local home improvement store or you can order one online from sellers like Amazon.
LOAD IT INTO YOUR TRUCK WITH THE HELP OF A FRIEND
You will need the help of at least one other person to load your mattress into your new home. If you are moving your entire home, we recommend that you load your mattress into the truck before your bed so that upon arrival at your new home you can first unload and set up the bed and then take your mattress and put it on top of the bed!
Moving a mattress is a fairly simple process, but our expert recommendations are to protect it with a mattress bag and abandon the idea of moving it without a truck. If you want more tips on how to load a truck.
