3.20 Let you know more about mattress packing bags

Mattress Protector Bag

Moving a mattress? One thing you have to have is a heavy duty mattress bag.  You don’t want one that will tear if you drop the mattress coming down the stairs or accidentally dragging it on the sidewalk on your way out the door. You  also need one that will keep dust, bugs and moisture away from your bed.

At Unbox Mattress, we’ve tried several moving bags for mattresses. We use them to store or move mattresses we’ve reviewed or purchased.

After a lot of experiments both out of necessity and from trying to find the best heavy duty mattress bag, here are our picks…you can read more detail below to find out why.

Note: there are affiliate links in this post and we may earn a small commission on any purchases. We have extensive experience choosing mattress bags that we hope will be helpful to you. 


Top 2 Mattress Bags

We’ve tried a lot and these brands perform the best of any we’ve tried. Please note that the commercial grade moving bag is sometimes out of stock. It was our #1 pick until they ran out for a month and we tried IBBM which costs less and is just as good. IBBM is our #1 choice because they have more options and this brand goes out of stock less often. From now on that’s what we plan to use.

For every mattress bag you should be able to get a minimum of three uses out of it. You want to keep costs down but most important you need a mattress bag that will protect your mattress (do its job well).

Why you Need a Mattress Bag

To keep your mattress clean and dry (aka, protect your investment).
Most mattresses are white on the top side and maybe even on the sides. If you have a rip or tear in your bag it’s exposed. If you drop the bed while trying to move it and it touches the pavement, your driveway or dirt, you’re going to get it dirty. It’s harder to get off than you think. I’ve tried things like Clorox Wipes and they just smear the dirt. I’ve tried steam cleaners and they don’t work, surprisingly. The best thing I’ve found is spray OxyClean and rubbing the fabric together or removing the entire cover and washing it in a washer (but skip the dryer and let it air dry). Maybe you’re moving your mattress in the rain and you don’t want it to get wet.

Also, if you ruin your mattress you can sometimes purchase a new cover for it from the manufacturer. For boxed brands we’ve called about, they can cost $200 and up to replace for a king. So it’s better to plan ahead and protect your bed.

Things to consider when you buy a mattress bag:

· Will it fit my mattress?
King size mattress bags are made to fit California kings, thinner kings and thicker king size mattresses. So if you have any kind of king size mattress, get a king size mattress bag. Just remember the sizing is inconsistent and the bag might be shorter or not wide enough to fit your pillow top mattress. Note the dimensions of the mattress bag and see if it will match the dimensions of your mattress. You need a large plastic bag for mattress.

This is a 13″ hybrid mattress (it’s actually a Purple3 bed) that we’ve successfully moved with a mattress bag. We’ve moved up to 14 inches thick so far and our top picks have all worked well.

WARNING: DO NOT use a moving blanket on your mattress! The colors will bleed if it gets damp or wet, leaving stains on your mattress. Always use a plastic bag, plastic sheeting or a tarp directly touching your mattress, not a colored blanket.

· Is it heavy duty enough to handle my mattress?
You can buy mattress bags at Home Depot or Lowe’s in the moving section but they are cheap and will rip/tear. Plus they cost more than buying them online. Only use them if you have no other option but even then we’d recommend wrapping your mattress in painter’s plastic or a tarp instead.

· Tarps are great because you can twist the ends to make them like handles – it’s a lot easier to move your mattress that way.Your mattress folded, bagged and strapped – all ready to move! Just don’t store mattresses folded if they have springs. Just fold for moving (make the straps looser for transporting) and then when you’re done, remove the straps so it’s flat.We like the clear plastic because if you resell your mattress, you can see how it looks. It just looks nicer than it does when covered with a tarp. However, if using a truck and if your mattress will be exposed to the weather while moving it, use a mattress bag AND a tarp to make sure it doesn’t blow open and to protect it from the elements.

· Does it seal at the ends?
Since we reuse our bags, we don’t need to find one with tape on the top. You can use packing tape to secure but we fold our mattresses in half and secure with tie down straps. Simply overlap the ends of the bag and they’ll stay when you secure with the straps. Watch for our mattress moving tutorial coming soon to see how to best move a mattress so it won’t break your back.

· How many mil is your mattress bag?
You don’t ever want to go below a 3 mil mattress bag because it will fall apart (or only for short distances). The mil stands for one-thousandth of an inch (.001). It indicates how thick the plastic is. Cheap bags are barely going to protect your bed – they will tear easily. Only use one at a last resort. Sometimes a mattress bag is advertised as thicker (6 mil, for example) and it’s not. The novice won’t know the difference but we do!

Note: mattress bag sizes aren’t standard. We like to buy the largest (king) size and use it for whatever size mattress we need to move and just fold it. However, if all you’re moving is a twin or full (and not going to need it to move a larger size), get a smaller bag.

Mattress Bag

For less than 20 dollars, you can buy a mattress bag to protect your bed when you move it. It’s a clear plastic, heavy-duty bag that envelops your bed to keep it safe and clean during transport. Plus, if you need long-term storage, this bag will keep it safe and critter-free.
