It used to be quite easy for an owner to sell gently used old mattresses to resell shops and thrift shops. Barring that, many charitable organizations used to not only accept donations of gently used mattress sets, but would even schedule complimentary pick up of the items. Most of the time, a receipt for a charitable donation was given, allowing the owner to write the old mattress off on taxes. In recent years, thrift shops have stopped accepting used mattresses and box springs, many charities have done the same, and many newspapers and Internet sites do not allow listings that seek to sell used mattresses. It used to be so easy; why is it now so hard to be rid of an old mattress?
- Buy within your budget, but purchase quality. Above anything else, do not purchase cheap mattresss that will fall apart within a few years and give you aches and pains throughout that time.
There are basically three types of Sealy TrueFoam mattress to choose from; the 8 series, 9 series and 11 series - the number is the thickness of the mattress in inches. The 8 series comes with 5" of high-density foam in the core and 3" of memory foam in the top layer. The 9 series comes with 6" of high-density foam in the core and 3" of top layer. What exactly are the benefits of the 9 series over the 8 series I can't really say as both have a 3.5" top layer of memory foam - I don't see how an extra one inch of high-density foam in the core makes the 9 series any better than the 8 series. The 11 series comes with 6" of high-density foam in the core, a 3.5" visco middle layer and 1.5" convoluted visco top layer.
Most cars do not have the roomto transport a mattress. Ask if the store delivers, and what they are charging. If the cost is too high, you may want to ask a friend with a larger vehicle to do you a favor.
