We've teamed up with DX to help precisely customers with large and bulky items. When it comes to beds and mattresses DX is the market leaders - they even have direct relationships with some leading bed and mattress retailers.
DX Freight takes care when collecting and delivering your items but as always we advise that a high level of correct packaging is used to protect your goods in transit.
Obviously, start by stripping everything from it and removing it from the bed frame. Then you could move it to a room where you have the space to wrap it without worrying about knocking things over - this could be your hallway. To protect your mattress from sharp edges, for both getting it into the lorry and removing it into the destination address, we suggest that you first wrap it in bed sheets. You should then wrap it in waterproof protection, as you just don't know what the weather will be like on either the day of collection or delivery. You could use a series of thick bin bags opened up, or you could use any form of thick plastic sheeting.
