Thinking of Buying a Used Mattress? Think Again.

Stop. Stop scrolling through those used mattress ads right now. Whether you’re on Craigslist, Ebay, or Facebook Marketplace, you’ve gotta know one thing: It’s not worth it. Buying a used mattress might save you a little bit of money in the short-term. But you’ll pay for it in ways you can’t (or don’t want to) imagine.

You don’t know what kind of wear and tear it’s been through.

You can’t judge a mattress by its cover. Just because a mattress looks clean does not mean it’s in good shape. Worn out foam and structural material is almost impossible to detect at first sight. Sometimes, you have to sleep on a mattress to know whether it’s in good condition. And if that’s the case, and you don’t like your second-hand mattress, you’re out what you paid for it and you’ve got to haul it off to the dump. Good luck with that if you bought a used king size mattress. Even a used queen or full size mattress is tough to fit into an SUV.

Bed bugs are a real thing.

Don’t let the bed bugs bite is more than a funny aphorism. Bed bugs have cropped up across the country, and no environment or socioeconomic class is immune to them. Of course, we hope someone wouldn’t knowingly sell you a mattress with a bed bug infestation. But the possibility that they could go undetected and then infest your home is enough to put a stop to any used mattress purchase.
