Today, we’d be giving you tips on how to move a mattress by yourself. When it comes to moving a mattress, two options will work best. The first option is carrying the bed yourself and pairing up with another person or group of friends for safety’s sake; this may involve getting some help from family members if needed too!
The other choice would be hiring movers who know how much space each item needs in order not to damage anything during transport-this could cost quite an amount though so make sure you think about what else needs to be moved before deciding on either path.
When you’re moving, it’s important to have a plan. Here are some tips for how not only can I move my mattress by myself but also get rid of that old one and take up space in storage or even better yet–get new bedroom furniture!
“With all that said,” here’s what happens next…
Why Should You Move The Mattress?
Asking if you should move your mattress is a tricky question. If the answer seems like it might be “no,” then there’s no reason to drag out an already painful process! Most mattresses have only longevity of about 10 years so if any issues arise or worse yet; when they’re roughly at their end-of life span–it could save money by getting another one delivered instead though more expensively than buying new pieces separately would do in many cases (especially given how often things wear down).
Tips On How To Move A Mattress By Yourself
With a few simple tips, you can save yourself time and money when moving.
- The first step is determining how much space will be needed for your move– whether it’s just across town or statewide – then prepare accordingly!
- You’ll also want to think about what kind of vehicle would work best in this situation; determines factors such as size limitations (ex: height), safety features like seat belts that need installing before loading up on cargo shelves etcetera… Once these preparations have been made don’t forget one very important thing: take plenty of pictures along the way so there aren’t any.
- When you’re looking to move a mattress, some key items can make the process easier. The following equipment will help:
- A strap or rope
- A tape measure
- Cuticle scissors
- And of course, anything else needed for safely handling your newfound treasure!
- To keep your mattress clean during a move, put sheets on it until you’re ready to leave. Even if the moving process is messy and doesn’t always result in stains or ruination of personal belongings like furniture (or even clothes!), there’s no need for any dirt from rivaling.
- To help you move your mattress, it’s best to fold up the old one. This will make moving easier for just one person and reduce its flimsiness in height or width depending on what kind of queen/king size bedding set is being moved to! You can try using a cart if there are stairs involved but be careful because these might not have enough space beneath them when they get full- nothing worse than slipping while carrying heavy boxes right? through onto our most precious asset: The Bed!
- The cardboard mattress reinforcement is a simple and effective way to prevent your bed from collapsing when you sleep on it. It’s also lightweight, so there’s no need for heavy metal straps or tie downs that can damage the frame of a bedroom furniture set if they’re not properly secured!
- There are many ways to avoid injury while moving a mattress. The best way is not to use your back as the main axis of movement, and instead squat down with feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart so that when picking up heavier weights or lifting objects such as beds we recommend keeping them close towards our bodies for protection purposes.
- When it’s time to move your mattress, use a vehicle that can hold both the weight and dimensions. If you’re only transporting one thing at once then consider using an able bodyguard or dolly-which will help prevent any damages along the way too! Keep this in mind when planning where exactly would be the safest spot during transportation; always remember safety comes first
Unpacking The Mattress
Here’s how to unpack your mattress and set it up in no time.
First off, make sure that you unwrap the plastic carefully so there are no folds or wrinkles on any parts of its surface before neatening away at all four corners with a ruler as well as a tape measure (just like we did earlier).
Next propping up one end against something sturdy like a wall while leaving plenty of space for movement on either side will allow air circulation which is crucial when setting out new mattresses, especially those who may have been left sitting around too long without being opened due to their owner never bothered to set them up.
Now that you’ve finally got your bed into the new place, it’s time for some good old-fashioned mattress care. Care instructions vary based on what kind of material yours is made out of so make sure to check our cleaning guide with various tips and tricks! Once everything has been cleaned up (or at least vacuumed), set up all those big metal pieces like frames and Foundations; then put down their perfect partners: mattresses.
Likely, your sheets are still damp from when you wet them before, so it might be worth leaving the mattress cover off for a little while longer just to let everything air out.
NOTE: When moving a mattress, you need to make sure there is no obstacle in your way. Clear any brush or trees that could get between the two of them as well! Don’t step onto anything while walking with both hands full of mattresses- it’s very possible if stepping wrong would cause injury from falling onto sharp objects below; this also goes for when carrying over shoulders too.
Carrying at an angle helps fit more into doorways but just keep cautious about how far inside they go because some companies will charge extra again depending on what type/size etc.
