Shipping Mattresses, Box Springs or Bed Sets

A bed set will typically have 4 pieces. If it were a king sized the estimate of the weight and measure of the pieces might be:

    • mattress and box springs: 80 x 78 x 24 inches, 130 lbs (sometimes each will be in their own box - 80 x 78 x 12 mattress at 90 lbs, box spring or springs at 80 x 78 x 12 or 80 x 39 x 12 inches) and 40 lbs or 20 lbs each

    • bed frame: 84 x 16 x 6 inches, 50 lbs

    • headboard: 80 x 48 x 5 inches, 30 lbs

The pieces will be boxed. They do not have to be palletized for shipment.
