Bed in a Box Mattress
“Bed in a Box” or “Mattress in a Box” NOT a long-term solution
A mattress is supposed to support the weight of one or two adults for an eight hour period for at least 10 years in order to get the most out of the investment in a quality mattress. The “Bed in a Box” industry has a big problem here. In order to make a mattress that will be up to the task, you need a solid support core that will offer neutral spinal alignment and be free from excessive sagging.
For the Bed in a Box companies to keep shipping cost low they must compromise the quality of the core and compress the whole mattress down to a pancake size and roll it up. Then it will fit nicely into the box. The “Bed in a Box” company saves greatly on cost and the consumer gets stuck with a mattress that will likely not last very long.
We HAD to inspect the interior belonging to these “Bed in a Box” mattresses. Just look at the difference between the boxed mattress and one of our many properly built mattresses in our showroom.

Another red flag on the “Mattress in a Box” model is the lack of time tested product research. Most of the online companies are pretty new to mattress making and really don’t have enough time tested data to know if the mattress will last as long as they claim. Just search craigslist in your area to see the large number of “Bed in a Box” products that people are trying to unload at pennies on the dollar.
Mattress Gallery Direct recommends visiting a local mattress store near you to try several options from brands that are well established. Purchasing a mattress from a top name brand that has been in business for 80 to 100 years is a safer bet. Let’s put this issue to bed once in for all (pun Intended).
If it can fit in a little box, it is not fit to be in your home.
