Getting our new mattress online with home delivery.

Recently me and my partner were surprised to find out that we were going to be blessed with another child. When our first son was born, I remember very vividly how much pain my back was in during and after his birth. We decided that we were not going to go through all that pain again and decided a new mattress would be the perfect way to help me ease through this pregnancy.

Our current mattress is closing in on seven years old, and I think because it was too firm, it was causing me significant discomfort in my muscles and joints. During the last few months of being pregnant with Bug, I could barely lay down let alone sleep on that mattress. So we decided that now was the time to search for that new mattress.

I have to admit I was a little overwhelmed when I started searching for mattresses online. As my partner is off at work from sunrise to sunset it can be a real challenge to shop with him for a new mattress. Since we knew the size of the mattress, we only needed to find a similar mattress that was less firm than the one we purchased several years ago. With the hours and the type job my partner has it can be near impossible to get him to commit to time shopping for food, let alone a brand new mattress. Also as we do not own a van or have family close to us here to lend a hand, it was important that we found a mattress with home delivery.

With the new baby due in July and me watching our four year old son each day on my own, I decided if I did not find a mattress now that I would easily put it off until it was too late. So I searched a few websites in an effort to close the deal. In addition to the confusing choice of websites promising low mattress prices, I was also having trouble finding a company where I could get the mattress with home delivery as many were either pick-up only or charged a huge fee for delivery.

As the choice was endless I decided to wait till that evening when I had the house to myself to find the perfect online mattress retailer. A few hours later after playing lots of games and climbing in his bed, Bug fell asleep and I got back on my computer. I narrowed down my search this time by searching for a company selling mattresses with nationwide home delivery so they could deliver here in Pembrokeshire, Wales. I clicked on the first website which was Cutprice Mattresses and began my search. 

The mattresses were all easily organized by style, from the sprung mattress, the memory, foam, gel, and pocket spring types. The pictures were all crystal clear, and the information about each was in detail. The best was they were offering free next day delivery!  I narrowed down my search to the standard spring mattress that was softer than the one we currently own. I then chose my delivery date, completed my purchase, and within minutes received my confirmation information.

The entire purchase process took me less than ten minutes, and I got the delivery date I wanted. I chose a delivery date where my partner would be home so we could keep Bug distracted while the delivery guys did their job. I chose this mattress with a home delivery service because the website was the most organized and streamlined of all the ones I visited. A few days later I got the call the delivery team were going to arriving as scheduled. Of course my partner was called to work that day, so I was left as I feared trying to keep Bug occupied whilst trying to liaise with the delivery men. When they arrived, they were extremely courteous, asking which room to put the new mattress. I explained I couldn't remove the old mattress myself because of my condition but thankfully they gladly lifted and removed the mattress for me, even taking the old mattress away for me too!

The delivery men were in the house less than 10 minutes, and Bug was on his best behaviour the entire time. Once they had left me and Bug raced to my room to put sheets on the new mattress before testing it out and thankfully it was more comfortable than I could have ever imagined. The two of us took a nice nap on the new mattress that afternoon, and I look forward to my peaceful night's sleep every evening.
