You’re looking to buy a new mattress. Because of your heightened interest in the industry right now, you’ve been paying attention to as many mattress commercials as possible, and you have noticed one of the hottest buzzwords in the industry is a “bed in a box.” This is becoming more and more popular as mattress shoppers just like you are opting for it. What is this, though? What are your options? Where should you buy one? Let’s answer all of your questions, right here and right now!

What is a Bed in a Box?

In a way, it is exactly what it sounds like. The entire mattress, even a Queen or King, fits inside of a box! When you buy a bed in a box mattress, it will arrive on your doorstep just a few days later, compressed into an easy-to-manage box only a few feet long. You may wonder how this could be possible. It all has to do with the materials inside. Most mattress in a box options are made from a combination of memory foam and layers of comfort foam which combine to deliver cozy, self-contouring support that is long-lasting and resistant to body impressions. You’ll sleep throughout the night on a mattress that helps you fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, relax more deeply, and wake up feeling rejuvenated.

What are our Bed in a Box Options?

We currently have several fantastic options for those looking to buy a bed in a box, including mattresses from top brands like Nectar, Nautica, Sleep Inc, Renue, and Casper. Read more in our Nectar mattress vs Casper mattress comparison.

Each option is delivered to your doorstep in a box that is easy to unpack on your own. You can start reaping the benefits of a great night’s sleep right away.

Why Should You Buy Your Bed in a Box From City Mattress?

One of the biggest selling points of a bed in a box is that you can order it online. So, why would you purchase one from City Mattress instead of the manufacturer’s website? We’re glad you asked!

You can try it before you buy it

By now, you’re wondering if a bed in a box is the right mattress for you. There’s one thing holding you back, though. The fact that they’re ordered online seems like a big risk to take. A mattress is a big investment and buying one without ever feeling it first can feel like a gamble you’re not willing to take. This is why we have them in our stores. When you visit a City Mattress, you can see, feel, and lie down on a Casper, Nectar, or other bed in a box option before you buy it, just like with a more traditional mattress option.

Our unparalleled customer service 

Our customer service is second to none, something that will be incredibly appreciated if you have questions, concerns, or need to reach out to someone. Even though you know you want this type of mattress, you don’t yet know which brand or which specific mattress. How will you figure it out? Buying a mattress via a website-only option means you’re stuck doing research on your own and waiting on hold with a 1-800 number if you have any additional questions. We also have guides for setting up your bed in a box!

Easier exchanges

As with our other mattress offerings, if you change your mind about your bed in a box choice in a month or two, you can exchange it for a different new mattress. When you buy a bed in a box through us, you get all the benefits of a traditional mattress bought through the best retailer in town!

It is important to note that when you order a bed in a box mattress, the foundation is sold separately. Because all of these options can be paired with an adjustable bed base, this is something to consider. An adjustable bed base is a fantastic way to create the ideal bed that makes your best night of sleep easy to achieve. We’re proud to be a part of the growing movement where people can have the exact mattress they want, delivered right to their doorstep, hassle-free in a box!
