Why You Should Buy Mattresses Locally Instead of Online

It seems that everywhere you look, there is a new brand of mattresses that you can shop for in the convenience of your home. Shop in your pajamas? Sounds like a great idea! However, there are some reasons why this might not be the best option for you. Here are some top reasons why you might want to buy mattresses locally instead:

  • Personal Attention – Having a live person to ask questions about mattresses is going to put you in a better position to choose the right type, quality, and size for your needs. You’ll also be able to learn how to best care for your new mattress. You can also arrange for delivery and have your old mattress hauled away. With online shopping, you’ll need to handle the disposal yourself.
  • Try Before You Buy – There is a reason why furniture stores often devote such a large area of their showroom to mattresses. They know the best way to select the right one is to lie on it. They encourage you to try a few to see whether a soft, firm, or medium one feels the most comfortable to you. You can also get a feel for size this way. Online retailers will tell you that you have “x” number of days to try your mattresses and can return them if they don’t suit you, but consider the difficulty involved with readying it for shipment and getting it to the post office or other shipping facility.
  • Quality – It is very difficult to gauge quality of an online mattress. You have to depend on reviews that could be far from unbiased.
