Should You Buy a Mattress Online?


Should You Buy a Mattress Online?

Your mattress is the piece of household furniture that you use the most. Forget about your couch or sofa, forget about your kitchen table, you hardly spend any time using these compared to your bed.

Most people spend up to a third of their lives in their beds making it by far and away the most used piece of furniture. Even more important, however, is the fact that sleep is a fundamental component of your overall health and wellbeing, meaning that having a good mattress is essential.

When it comes to improving your sleep, nothing is more important than having a good quality, supportive mattress. It is no exaggeration to say that your mattress is the single most important piece of furniture in your home. Getting the right one is vital as you will not only be spending the most time using it but it also has a huge impact on your health and wellbeing as it improves your sleep.

They say that the longest any mattress, no matter the quality or type, should be in use is ten years. If your mattress is older than that it is time to retire it. If your mattress is uncomfortable, if it is saggy or uneven, then you need to get a new one. While other items of furniture can go on for many decades, the mattress is something that you need to replace fairly regularly. This means it is time to go mattress shopping.

Why should you buy a mattress online?

1. Mattresses are cheaper online

You will save money. That big flashy showroom that you go into, that costs money. Lots of it. Where do you think the money to keep that showroom going comes from? Yes, you guessed it, you pay for it. The rough estimate is that about a fifth to a quarter of the cost of a retail good goes on all of those expenses, things like rent, power, wages, utilities and all the rest. That is cost without value as it does not change the quality of the mattress you buy and ten years down the track you will not care whether you got your mattress online or in a flash show room.

When you purchase from an online store, like Ergoflex, mattresses are cheaper than store-bought ones because we are an internet business only and therefore have substantially less overheads. These savings are then passed on to you so you can buy a high quality mattress for less.

2. You can get more for less when you shop online

Consequently you are able to get more for less. Yes, the thing with buying online is that you will get more for your money as the retailer does not have to pay all those overheads and consequently their items are cheaper. Sure you could pocket the difference between a similar quality bed but the best thing to do is upgrade and get a better bed for the same amount.

3. You can do more research online and feel less pressured

When you buy online it is just you, no pushy sales person trying to make their target. That means that you get the time and space needed to make a good decision. Most of us are put off by some fast talking sales type who is worried about meeting the quota for the day. When you shop online you can do your research, sitting around contemplating without the pressure.

4. Information rich situation

Speaking of doing your research, when you buy online you will be amazed at how much information you can find. When you go shopping in a bricks and mortar store you only have the information supplied (you could look on your smartphone but this is not as comprehensive as sitting at home on your computer). Shopping online means that you can easily find out everything you need to know about the different mattress choices. The great thing about the internet is that there are some excellent means of finding out all the information you need on there. A good website will not just have written information but will also have videos and guides, they will have plenty of means and methods for you to find out as much as you can about your mattress.

5. Mattress measurements and gradings have improved

These days you can actually find out everything you need to know about mattresses online. You don’t need to do the bounce test as these tests have been done for you. Mattresses come with loads of information about their different support and comfort levels so you can work it out online. Make sure that you find a good mattress website that has lots of measurements and information on it so that you can find out all the data you need to know on your new mattress.

6. Fast delivery

Another major benefit of buying online is that you will often get fast delivery of your mattress. When you buy from a store often you have to lug the mattress back to your car and deal with it yourself, but when you buy online you will have it delivered, saving you the hassle. For those stores that do have delivery options, these often take a lot longer than an online store as an online store solely delivers, therefore their delivery process will be specialised, fast and more seamless than a stores delivery.  

7. Shopping online gives you a better returns policy

When you purchase a mattress in a store, often they have a rigid returns policy which means you cannot return your mattress. This is tricky as sometimes when you try a mattress in store, it may seem great at the time but once you take it home and sleep on it for multiple nights you may discover it is not for you. However, by this time you are stuck with the mattress for good. With an online store, you are given the opportunity to try out your mattress at home for a period of time that will allow you to decide if it is right for you. If you decide it is not right, the returns policy of an online story is very simple.
