When it comes to buying mattresses, people often think of big retailers, pushy salesmen, and, most of all, a big hit to the wallet. However, there is now an alternative route to mattress shopping that has become quite popular for consumers in recent years.
Shopping for Mattresses Online
That’s right, buying mattresses online. The idea may sound strange because people have it engraved in their minds that they need to lie down on, and feel the mattress before they ever consider buying it. To have this perception is understandable, but there are multiple benefits to buying a mattress online.
At-Ease Shopping Experience
All shopping can be done from the comfort of your own home, phone, tablet, or anywhere you have internet access.
This Isn’t Baseball
No more pitches. Dealing with pushy salesmen who are working towards a quota is completely avoided.
More Attractive Prices
Since these companies are conducting business solely online, they do not have the same costs as traditional brick & mortar stores do. Without having to pay for salespeople and the elimination of high rent / ownership costs from retailers, the middlemen are cut out of the equation. The savings are all directed towards the customer in the form of very competitive, low prices.
Shipping/Delivery Is A Breeze
With online stores, the mattresses are rolled up and vacuum sealed, and packaged in a nicely sized box. Shipping is almost always free when online mattress shopping too! Unpackaging is super simple. Just unroll your mattress where you want it to be, take off the plastic wrapping, and let your mattress expand to its full form. No more stressful moving of a big, clumsy mattress throughout the house.
Since the customer is unable to try out the mattress before buying, online companies offer trial periods of around 100 days so the customer can get a true sleeping experience with their mattress. If for any reason the customer is unsatisfied, returns are easy, usually free, and refunds are paid in full.
People who buy online tend to be happier with their purchases and are generally more informed on what they are purchasing. When buying mattresses online, people can do more research to help make the right decision because acquiring the information is, by far, more easy than going from store-to-store testing out mattresses.
Of course, some people will still prefer the traditional method over new online mattress shopping. However, it is not a mystery why this new form of mattress shopping is becoming more and more popular after every night’s sleep. Sleep is simple, so mattress shopping should be simple, too.
