What to know before shipping a mattress internationally or cross country by courier
Before ordering a shipment to send your mattress domestically or abroad via courier service, make sure to learn the most important basics:
- Measure your mattress in its final packaging to determine what is the most suitable shipping option for your needs.
- Check whether you need to print and attach the label yourself. This information will be sent to you via email once the transport service of your mattress is confirmed.
- Calculate the estimated time of delivery with our online tool and ship your mattress on time. Make sure to have someone present at the pick-up and delivery addresses.
How to pack a mattress for shipping abroad or domestically
Follow the instructions below to find out how to properly pack and protect a mattress for shipping:
- Prepare the mattress for shipping by removing the bedding and other items.
- Wrap the mattress securely using a mattress bag, a bigger plastic bag or ample amounts of bubble wrap.
- Pack a mattress in a large box, filling the voids with packing materials. Alternatively, large cardboard sheets can be used to wrap the mattress if well secured with adhesive tape.
- Seal the box, reinforce all the edges and flaps and label the package (if needed).
We got you covered! Every shipment includes shipping insurance whose value will depend on the type of shipping service selected. Additional insurance options with higher coverage are also available when sending mattresses and bed frames internationally. Make sure to keep the original invoice for the items you are shipping which can serve as proof of value.

How to compress a memory foam mattress to save on shipping
Most manufacturers compress memory foam mattresses and roll them up before packing and shipping them to save some space. While this process is only possible with the help of a special compression machine, you can shrink your mattress to a certain degree at home using just a vacuum bag for mattresses and a vacuum cleaner. By compressing your mattress, there are higher chances its dimensions will be suitable for using the standard shipping service.
- Put the foam mattress or the topper in the bag.
- Suck the air out of it with a vacuum cleaner.
- Seal the bag well to prevent the air from leaking back in.
- Roll the mattress and put it in another plastic bag.
- Box it for shipping.
After unpacking it again, give it some time to completely recover, especially if you get a new one that has been compressed in the factory.
How to prepare the shipment before transporting a queen, king-size or kid bed frame internationally
There are several things to keep in mind before transporting simple bed frames, king size beds or kid bed frames by courier:
- Disassemble the bed. Pro tip: we suggest marking all the pieces so later it will be easier to reassemble it back even without the original instructions.
- Put the smaller pieces in a Ziploc bag and later attach it to any of the bigger pieces of the shipment.
- Remove all detachable parts such as the mattress, the side rails, headboard and footboard.
- Wrap all the pieces separately with bubble or foam wrap.
