What is a mattress in a box?

A mattress in a box is just the same as a regular mattress, only in a box. A bed in a box is simply compressed in a bag, rolled tight and air-sealed before shipping. And because they are compressed down to the size of a small cabinet, boxed beds are a lot easier and cheaper to transport than regular mattresses.

What are the advantages of buying a mattress in a box?

There are several advantages to buying a mattress in a box instead of a traditional mattress.

1. Cost Savings

Bed-in-a-box mattresses are significantly less expensive compared to conventional mattresses. Many companies frequently offer deals and discounts, so you can secure a heavenly new bed for less than what you’d pay at a typical bedding store.

These cost savings are a result of only selling online. Costs are reduced by not having a physical location with associated expenses. Plus compressing the mattresses into small boxes keeps shipping costs down, allowing savings to be passed on to customers.

2. Convenient delivery

When you buy a mattress in a bedding store, it often needs to be ordered from a warehouse and scheduled for delivery days or weeks later. Sometimes your mattress is available on the day of purchase, but you have to pay an expensive delivery fee or lug it home yourself. Mattress in a box companies, on the other hand, typically offer same-day delivery to your door, making the process so much easier.

3. Risk-free trials

Since you can’t try out a mattress in a box before you buy it online, companies offer trial periods. During this time you can return the mattress free of charge and either receive a refund or request an exchange.

Sleep Republic offers our famous 100 Night Free Trial. Contact us within 100 days of your purchase and we’ll collect your mattress free of charge, refund you and recycle the mattress or donate it to charity.
