The Purple Mattress: How to Move It Without Destroying Your Back


The Purple mattress has become one of the most popular mattresses on the market since its introduction in 2014, and it’s no wonder. The mattress boasts many exciting features that other memory foam mattresses just don’t offer, and its unique design makes it both aesthetically pleasing and extremely comfortable to sleep on. But what about when you want to move your Purple mattress? Can you simply pick it up and put it in your new bedroom? Or should you be using a moving service?


Know your equipment

Before you even think about moving the mattress, you need to know what kind of equipment you'll need. If you're moving it by yourself, you'll need a dolly. If you have help, you might be able to get away with just a few blankets. But if you want to be extra careful, get some furniture pads as well.

Gather your team

You'll need at least two people to move the mattress—one on each side. If you have three people, one can be in charge of carrying the box spring. Moving blankets or furniture sliders will make the job easier. And be sure to wear gloves!

Start by removing the legs (two sentences): The first step is to remove the legs from the mattress. This will make it easier to carry and will also prevent any damage to your floors.

Do the math

Moving a mattress is no easy feat, especially when it's a king size. And when that mattress is the popular Purple brand? You're in for a workout. But don't worry, we've got you covered. Here's a step-by-step guide to moving your Purple mattress without destroying your back in the process.


Pick a good time of day

Moving a mattress is no small feat—especially when that mattress is the size of a queen bed. If you're moving the Purple Mattress solo, it's best to do it first thing in the morning before your back gets too tired. Trust us, your future self will thank you.

Here's what you'll need:

- A friend (or two) to help you lift the mattress

- A large, flat surface on which to place the mattress while you move it

- A moving dolly (optional)

Use straps if you can

The most important thing when moving a Purple mattress is using straps. This will help you keep the mattress in place while you move it and also help to distribute the weight so that your back doesn't have to bear the brunt of it. If you don't have straps, you can use sheets or blankets to achieve a similar effect. Just make sure that whatever you use is secured tightly so that the mattress doesn't slip during transport.

Readjust after every few feet

The first step is to get the mattress out of the box. You’ll need at least two people for this – one to hold each end of the mattress. Once you have it out, take a break and readjust your grip every few feet. The next step is to find a firm, level surface on which to place the mattress.
