Our mattresses provide us with comfort, joint health, and that irresistible sinking feeling when we get into bed at the end of the day. Unfortunately, with experts stating that we should aim to replace this all-important element of our nighttime sleep at least every 6-8 years, even the most comfortable mattress can also become a significant pain in our backsides when the time comes to get rid.
Our Guide to Mattress Removal Options
After all, disposing of a large-scale item like this is rarely simple. Here, we’re aiming to take the hassle out of even this sometimes complex problem by considering the best options for mattress removal London.
Solution # 1 – Consider methods for reuse
If your mattress still has life left in it, then passing it along to friends or the growing numbers of furniture-based charity shops across the city (as long as it has an intact fire safety label) is a fantastic and eco-friendly way to reuse and get rid. Even for older mattresses, creative ideas including planters from old mattress springs, or even repurposed pet beds can be great alternatives if you’re willing to put in the work and have that mattress lying around for some time.
Solution # 2 – Take it to the tip
While you can’t put your mattress out for bin collection, the tip does provide a free (for homeowners, at least) disposal solution. This is especially viable for memory foam mattresses, that roll up small enough to fit into most vehicles. Unfortunately, the need to rent a van to take a standard spring mattress to the tip could soon see costs, and hassle, escalating.
Solution # 3 – Call the council
Mattress removal from London council is great for saving you the hassle of having to even think about transportation, but it’s also a chargeable service that could cost you as much as £60 per mattress in areas like Richmond-Upon-Thames. Worse, there’s a long waiting list that could see your mattress sitting around for as long as two weeks. You’ll also most likely be expected to place your mattress at the curbside, which isn’t exactly easy to achieve if you have to find a way to get it downstairs first.
The final (and best) solution – arrange collection with Junk Hunters
