When packing your bed frame and mattress for moving, don't assume they will be fine to go into the moving container or truck as is. Both items are liable to get scratched, dented and dirty during transit. By completing a few easy steps before packing these items you will ensure they arrive at your new home in the same condition as leaving your old one.
Mattress Bag (or cling wrap is a suitable alternative)
Remove all bedding from the bed, including mattress protector - these can be packed separately.
Remove the mattress from the bed frame (or base). Place the mattress into a correctly sized mattress bag or if you are using cling wrap, wrap the entire mattress this way.
The mattress is now ready for packing. Note: For an extra level of protection, there are mattress boxes available for purchase at speciality packaging suppliers however generally, ensuring the mattress is covered and protected from dirt, is sufficient.
Dismantle the bed frame as much as possible. Keep all hardware ie. screws, wheels etc. in a ziplock bag and attach it to the bed once wrapped. Once the frame is in a flat pack state you can wrap the sides, headboard, slats in the furniture blankets securing with packaging tape.
Always ensure that all items you pack in a moving container (or truck) including your bed frame and mattress are securely tied into place to prevent any moving during transit.
