Packing Material Required

Packing a mattress is not at all a difficult task but it sure is tricky. Here are some materials that will be required to pack a mattress:

  • Cartons that can pack the mattress
  • Plastic bags or sheets to cover the mattress
  • Moving pads
  • Other accessories such as tape and marker

Packing Guide

Before packing a mattress make sure that you have someone to give you hand with this packing task. It can be a tedious task, so it is always best to get some help from your family members or friends. Find a carton that is able to fit the mattress. Lift the mattress and perfectly slide it into the carton. Your helper will come into play here as they will hold the carton while you slide in the mattress. Once the mattress is in, use the tape to secure the opening and label the carton.

Once the mattress is packed, move on to bed frames. Make use of the appropriate tools to disassemble the frames and the bed. The screws that you take out from the bed should be safely placed in a plastic bag along with other hardware. Move on to the parts of the bed and cover them in moving pads. Once they are covered, tape the plastic bag with screws and hardware to those parts so that they can be easily identified once you reach the new location.

Packing a mattress and a bed does take time but if you do it right and follow the above guidelines, you will be able to do it like a packing professional!
