    Where to sell mattress?

    Hi All,

    I got one of those "memory foam" mattress's someone gave it to me as a gift, but I already got one it costs like £250 - 300 ish

    And I never used it still in the box and everything so where would I sell it? If i was to put it on eBay how could I dispatch it?

    thanks all!

    Advertise it for collection only:thumbsup:

    sell on here ? what size is it

    Local collection only.
    When they have paid, then they collect.....

    Size, make and location and make it clear, buyer collects.

    its double.



    Do you think collection works ? never done it before!!

    As long as they pay for it, it doesn't matter, just select on postage local collection.
    Or just sell on here with your town and your price!

    Depends where you live and what the item is. If you live in an area where theirs lots of people, then yes. If you don't then it depends on whether it's an item people would be willing to travel for. In this case I would say it was worth a shot.

    You could also try advertising in your local papers, and some local shops (especially Post Offices), have boards where you can advertise stuff for a small fee.

    How bigs the box and approximate weight?

    lol, qaz you must know- its in your house or whatever! Work out if its bigger, or smaller, than you for a start!

    btw- what a random present to recieve eh!

    Well as its double it'll be less than 1.5m long for a start, but I need the width.. And it probably says the weight on the box due to H&S regs if it's over 25KG.

    Well they weren't going to roll it lengthways to put it in a box were they, so the flat width is the packed length

    lol - I just hope somone collects it i really want to get rid of it!!

    thanks AGAIN for all your help.....

    qazim just to let you know this mattress is not the best around mate so the asking price on your sale is a bit ott at first looks it looks like its the famous brand sleepeezze but no its a sleepeazzy lol. These are not very good plus 8in of foam is not good for a foam mattress with no pocket springs just to put you right on here and not to spoil your for sale post.

    Original Poster

    its 20 CM? thats not good :S?

    well spotted waterloo.
    These are in TJ Hughes so check out the price tomorrow

    Maybe but i thought 10 to 10 1/2 in was the min for a good memory foam mattress without added support of springs i may be wrong but was just pointing this out on here instead of the sale post also sleepeassy are trying to sound like the famous brand sleepeezze beds & mattress and i cannot find a sleepeassy online expect a foam topper that's only £34 so maybe £200 is a bit much ?

    Original Poster

    hrmmmm.................maybe £200 is abit much but obviouslly people will offer lower.....I am prepared to go lower......just seeing what people offer first!

    Good luck but i think ebay is your best bet but looking on ebay they have 1000s of memory foam matts on there so ? I remember when i was looking for one of these 2-3 yrs ago they was costing a lot but now it looks like the price is coming down a bit. :thumbsup:

    I think Q that you should try the member that I PM'd you with.
