What Is a Mattress-in-a-Box?

Double Chevron Left Back to News

Are you interested in mattresses-in-a-box, and would like to better understand the concept?

Affordable, local and easy to transport, these mattresses are becoming increasingly popular in North America and offer many benefits. To better understand how they work, here's a quick guide on what a mattress-in-a-box is.

How Does a Mattress-in-a-Box Work?

The idea of the mattress-in-a-box is to reduce the size of the mattress as much as possible so that it can be transported more easily. To fit into such a small box, the mattress is first wrapped in a large plastic bag and then vacuum-sealed with specialized machines. The mattress is then folded lengthwise and rolled up to fit into its compact, lightweight box! 

But this is only a temporary solution! Once the mattress has arrived at its destination, you simply take it out of its box and let it regain its shape.

3 Advantages of a Mattress-in-a-Box

This concept has not won over sleepers for nothing! Now that you know what a mattress-in-a-box is, here are some of its many benefits:

  1. A Quick and Efficient Installation

Once out of the box and unpacked, simply place the mattress on a flat surface and let it return to its original shape. 

How soon can you sleep on a new mattress? After only a few minutes! So you can enjoy your new mattress right away.

In addition, the box format allows you to unpack and set up your mattress yourself. Once delivered, there is no need to call all the neighbors to install your new nest.

  1. High-Quality Foam

All boxed mattresses are designed with a memory foam base. This is what allows them to be compressed before returning to their shape. Some spring mattresses also come in this format. 

In addition to providing a soft and comfortable feel to the sleeper, the foam in boxed mattresses must be of high quality. This is a requirement to be able to compress the mattresses without them breaking or getting damaged. 

In addition, the foam used is high density. This allows you to enjoy a firm mattress, while still being foam based. This type of foam is also ideal to reduce the transfer of movement and allow good ventilation of the bed.

  1. Faster and More Eco-Responsible Delivery

Due to its compact size, the boxed mattress is easier to move and therefore, it is more eco-friendly! It takes up 6 times less space than a regular mattress, which allows you to transport more at once and reduce energy costs. For the same reason, the boxed mattress is also delivered more quickly.

In addition, there are local boxed mattress companies. By choosing local products, you reduce the transportation time and the carbon footprint of the trip! 

Not only is it a greener option, but choosing a local company also allows you to avoid the middleman. You benefit from lower costs and an excellent quality-price ratio!
