Can Tying the Mattress to the Top of Your Vehicle Damage Your Mattress?
Few things are as exciting as buying a new mattress. The thrill of testing out different brands, materials, and firmness all to find the bed that will give you the best night’s rest. It’s what we live for at Factory Mattress. You may have wondered after you purchased your bed how you will get it home. Should you tie it to the top of your car? Should you put it in the back of your truck? Should you have your mattress store deliver it to your home?
Find out why mattress delivery is best and how tying the mattress to the top of your vehicle can damage it.
We never recommend folding or bending your mattress. The more you fold it, the more damage it can cause. Folding or bending the mattress can damage the coils, bend the border rods, and damage the foam encasement. If you bend the mattress to try to fit into your car, you could possibly void out the warranty because you caused the damage. Also if you tie down the bed, the ropes and cause creases or internal damage can affect the integrity of the mattress.
Tying a mattress to the top of your vehicle can also pose a safety hazard while on the road. If you don’t tie the mattress down properly it can fly off of your vehicle and if you’re in heavy traffic, you might not be able to get it out of the road safely. You can also injure yourself while trying to lift it up and secure it properly. Some mattresses can be heavier than you’d expect because of the materials used to make your bed. It’s best to leave the heavy lifting to our expert delivery team.
At Factory Mattress, we offer express on time delivery. Our exclusive red carpet delivery service brings your new bed directly to your home and professionally sets up so you don’t have to wait to get a good night’s rest.
