  • Your beds are normally one of the last thing to be packed up and one of the first to be assembled in your new home.
  • Have your tools and seal tight bag handy and 2 packing boxes or what ever you are going to pack your linen into like a Zip Carry Storage Bag . Also a Mattress Protection Bags if need be
  • As your bed will be big and heavy you need to disassemble it as much as you can.
  • Remove your bedding and place in one of the empty Moving Boxes. You will want clean linen in your new home . So fill your second Packing Box with the clean linen . Or if you are using the Zip Carry Storage Bag.
  • Mark the Boxes or Bag clearly so you know which is the dirty sheets and which are clean.
  • Use your Mattress Protection Bag to protect your Mattress through out the move. If you don’t have one . Use a blanket or sheet instead.  Or maybe a tarp. As you don’t want dirty hand prints or marks on your mattress. The Mattress Protection Bags are the best
  • Decided on the best way to disassemble your bed. Some beds are easy and take no time at all. You might need a little help with the bigger beds.
  • With all your nuts and bolts . You can either screw them back into your bed. Or you can screw them together and place in the Seal Tight Bag. Make sure you do this asap as you don’t want to be looking for them later on.
  •  So you don’t lose them . Either Tape them to your bed in the bag or place them in the clean linen box . So you know where they are when you need them at the other end.

How to Move Your Waterbed.

Having a Waterbed once myself the best way I found to move it. As I moved about  times with my bed. Leaving water in the bladder just made it heavy to lift. Especially when living in a unit on the top floor. Here are some great tips on how to move your waterbed safely.

  • Have to boxes one for clean linen and one for dirty linen.
  • There are professionals that will come and empty the water out of your waterbed for you.
  • Depending on the size this could take 15 to  20 minutes.
  • If you hire a professional they will fold it up and have it ready for your move. This is great if you have any baffles or its wave-less
  • Take note of any leak’s and mark these on the mattress. If you have hired a professional they may be able to fix these for you.
  • Then all you have to do is do the bed frame.
  • Same as a normal bed. Have your tools ready and screws and pack these in a bag with the clean linen.
  • Mark the box clearly so that way you can find it once you move
  • Or you can tape the bag to the frame. Ready for the move
  • Once you have moved you can set the frame up.
  • Make sure any leak’s have been fixed before you fill the bladder.

  • Check again for any leak’s.
