    Best way to transport a mattress?

    Advertisements
    We have a moving date, finally! But this move is on us, obviously the army isn't moving us. I was thinking about the moving process when I thought of our mattress. Anytime I've moved a mattress it was new, so it was wrapped in plastic. When the army moved us they had big boxes they put it in.

    I don't know the best way to move our mattress, I want to avoid it getting ruined or dirty. I was thinking maybe leaving the fitted sheet on it and then putting another fitted sheet on the back of it so it's fully covered for sitting in the uhual and then I'd just wash the sheets.

    Anyone else have any ideas?

    I believe uhaul sells plastic mattress covers and Bed Bath & Beyond sells vinyl mattress encasements that will cover the entire mattress.

    Uhaul and Amazon sell mattress bags. Plenty big enough to put a mattress in.

    I'm late to the party, but yes plastic mattress covers are awesome. And they have handles!

    Oh that's a good idea! I was going to use a blanket and then just tape it. But the shrink wrap will come in handy for other things as well. Thank you!

    yes! and it's so much cheaper than furniture pads, plus you don't have to worry if you're storing your stuff for a while, just wash your blankets!
