Need a new mattress? Buying mattresses online has grown in popularity over the last few years, and it is understandable that some people are not entirely comfortable with it. The old way of doing things - browsing local showrooms until you find your perfect fit - has been the tried and true method for years, so what does online mattress shopping have to offer?
Here is why online shopping is the modern way to buy your new mattress over the outdated showroom experience.
First of all, it is important to look at why buying mattresses in store is an outdated concept. Showroom mattresses are expensive, and they are not transparent about it. Often it is near impossible to compare in-store prices online, forcing you to come in store and suffer through the sales pitch for whatever mattress they have excess stock of this month. Plus, who has the time? You will likely find yourself trying to fit in some mattress shopping in your lunch break or with the kids in tow, and neither are ideal. A mattress is something that will hopefully stick with you for years to come, so you want to take your time with the purchase instead of rushing through as many mattresses as you can in 20 minutes or trying to feel if the mattress is right for you while your kids are jumping on the very expensive king bed right next to you.
Buying online is definitely the more relaxed experience. You can take your time while you’re browsing for the perfect mattress for you. Another upside to shopping for mattresses online is the vast range of choice and transparency of information. Online, you can do your own research and the customer reviews and price are right there, so you know that you are getting the best price and all the information upfront.
So, what are the downsides? The fact that you can’t try before you buy is often times the biggest hurdle for those who are looking to buy a mattress online, but this isn’t something you should be afraid of. The fact is that you simply can’t decide if a mattress is for you by lying on it for five minutes. It takes a couple of nights sleep to let your body adjust and assess whether your new mattress is improving your sleep or keeping you up all night. Unless you are planning on taking a series of long naps in store, you are likely not getting enough information from trying out the mattress before you buy.
Our online mattresses are much cheaper than the average in-store mattress due to coming directly from the manufacturers, great quality, and we are upfront with our price and information so that you can find exactly what you are looking for. Add on the fact that you can pay later with Afterpay, zipPay, and Laybuy and that all of our mattresses have a 12 month warranty and the choice to shop online over in store is an easy one to make.
