How to Move Your Bed

Remove the bedding

Remove all the bedding from the mattress. Fold the sheets and comforters, and place them all in marked boxes for easy identification later.

Set aside and wrap the mattress

Get someone to help you when removing the mattress and the box spring. Cover each item in bubble wrap or another type of protective layer to prevent rips and other damages during the move. Set them vertically out of the way until you’re ready to load them onto the truck.

Disassemble and wrap the frame

You may need a screwdriver to take apart the frame. Once you’ve disassembled it, wrap the individual parts in sheets or bubble wrap to prevent scratch marks and scuffs.

Load everything onto the moving truck

With everything set aside, it’s time to load the truck. If you don’t have a truck, Access has you covered with a free truck rental. Load the mattresses first since they’re the largest items. Pack them vertically to save space in the back. Next, load the frame pieces and then the boxes that contain your bedding.

Organize it in self storage

Once you’re at your storage unit, remove the items from the truck. Set the mattress and the box spring against the back wall, followed by the boxes. You can either lay the frame pieces on the floor next to the wall or set them vertically in a corner to save space.
