Transferring A King-Size Mattress and Other Difficulties

If you’re considering how to move a king-size mattress by yourself, the first thing you should do is determine whether or not you have a friend or two who can provide a hand because these things are heavy, sometimes outrageously so. For further information, please visit

In any case, you’ll need to devise a strategy that will hopefully keep you safe. Fortunately, we’ve moved a few king and queen-size mattresses in our time, and so here are our suggestions for moving a large mattress alone or, preferably, with the assistance of several friends.

What You’ll Need to Move a Mattress on Your Own

Evaluate whether you truly have to relocate your mattress before deciding. If you wake up in discomfort or if your mattress is over ten years old, it’s time to replace it.

Mattresses are expensive, and the bulk of mattresses of excellent quality last for at least ten years. You could think about taking your mattress into your new house if that is in fine shape. Investing in certain equipment like a mattress bag, bubble wrap, carton and dolly will make it easier to move a mattress.

  • Mattress Cover

Mattress covers are heavy-duty plastic bags large enough to encase mattresses. It comes in every regular mattress size. They are available in hardware stores and companies that offer moving materials. They are reasonably priced, ranging between $6 and $10.

  • Wrapping Bubble Wrap, Using Tape, and Using Scissors

By providing an additional protective layer, Bubble wrap protects your mattress. Wrap it around a straight mattress against a wall. Before moving, the mattress sac or bubble wrap will require tape and cutters.

  • Straps with Tie-Downs

Utilize tie-down straps to make transporting the bed to the truck easier. Straps for tying down are readily available at any hardware shop. Tie-down straps are equipped with hooks and buckles to facilitate the process of securing items. If you are skilled at tying knots or lack time to purchase tie-down straps, you can utilize ropes.

  • Cardboard

You may or may not require cardboard, depending on how your mattress is packed. However, it’s a good idea to keep it on hand if you need to bolster your mattress with cardboard.

  • Dolly

The mattress from your house to the car may be purchased or rented on a wheeled platform.

  • The pickup truck or a lorry

You’ll almost certainly need a large vehicle, such as a truck, pickup truck, or van, with enough space for your mattress. Smaller mattresses, such as twins, twin XLs, or fulls, can fit inside a van if the seats are folded down.
