Tips on How to Move a Mattress


Ah, the mattress: that desperately cozy, hard-to-move piece of furniture that turns a lonely, empty room into your bedroom. Moving your mattress out of your home and into a new house can be a frustrating chore, but it doesn’t have to be—and you don’t have to risk dirt, grime, or tears during the process. 

We recommend using a mattress bag—with handles!—in order to make the mattress move as seamless as possible. While the “bag” part is pretty self-explanatory, in that it functions as a protective barrier between your sleeping surface and all other surfaces it may contact, handles allow you to get a grip on the mattress and make maneuvering downright simple. 


Remember that mattresses are one of those heavy items that should be packed into a moving truck first, so the good news is that you get the daunting mattress-moving portion of the project out of the way early. Once the mattress is on the truck, store it on its side in order to maximize the remaining truck space.
