Buying a new mattress from a retail store is the ‘traditional’ method of bed shopping. You can walk straight into a bedding store, decide on a mattress that you like, and make your purchase in the store. It’s the retail process that most of us are familiar with and it is still a common style of bed shopping today. This method allows you to try the mattress out before you buy, and involves face-to-face service from a salesperson.
Buying a mattress in a box online is a relatively new phenomenon and has proven to be very popular in Australia. This method involves the shopper purchasing a new mattress online, which then gets delivered to your door in a compact box. The box makes it more practical to transport and easier to manoeuvre around the house. This method is simple, convenient, and there are some great value options in the mattress in a box market.
There is no right or wrong decision here. It will depend on what’s important to you and your individual situation. Let’s look at the pros and cons of each:
