This involves ordering a mattress online and having it delivered to your door in a compact box! Dare we say the future of bed shopping? There are now over 40 mattress in a box companies operating in Australia and we take a look at some good reasons why you should consider one.

Sound interesting? Well, here are 5 good reasons why you should consider a mattress in a box!
1. They’re Great Value
Mattresses in a box are great value for money. Let’s face it. None of us want to spend more than we have to on a new mattress. Mattress in a box companies have business models based upon online sales that come with minimal expenses meaning you can save big. Bedding retailers have expensive showrooms that come with all of the overheads – leasing, staff wages and all the other usual running costs. The average mattress in a box sells for around $990, with many priced below this mark. Yes, a mattress in a box is typically very good value for money.
2. They’re Super Convenient
Buying a mattress in a box is super convenient. You can simply order online, and have it delivered to your door in a compact box. This means it is often much easier to manoeuvre to the bedroom. Many companies also offer same-day delivery! Once you receive it, all you have to do is cut it open, watch it expand, and it’s ready to sleep on. No painful store-to-store bed shopping the old fashioned way with pushy salespeople. Buying a mattress in a box cuts out all the time and hassle.
3. There is a free trial period!
Yes that’s right. Virtually all mattress in a box products in Australia offer a free trial period. What that means is once you purchase, you have a period of time in which you can return it (if you don’t like it) and get a full refund. A typical return period for a mattress in a box is around 100 nights. We haven’t found any retail stores that offer such a good refund system. Yes a mattress in a box offers you the security of knowing you are not stuck with a mattress that you don’t like.
4. They’re really cool!
Mattress in a box products are unique, modern, and just damn cool. Getting a mattress compressed into a compact box delivered to your door is like receiving a Christmas present! The anticipation of a new mattress waiting inside is quite exciting. Mattresses in a box are easy to unpack and watching your new mattress expand into its full shape is just really cool.
5. They’re actually good!
Yes – many mattresses in a box are actually really good. Our team at Bedbuyer would be more than happy to sleep on many of them.
