When my wife was told by her work that we needed to relocate, we were excited at first to be moving to the Birmingham area. We had visited there several times and really loved the location. This was going to be an exciting move for us and I wanted to surprise my wife with something for all her hard work the last few years. She was still working crazy hours each day, so I was reluctantly put in charge of tying up all the loose ends in our flat before the home removal company came by to start packing. My plan was to surprise her with a new mattress on our first night in our new home, but this surprise looked much easier on paper when I started to try and put my plan in motion.
Imagine trying to shop and buy a mattress with tons of boxes all over the place, and a to-do list that took up several pages. I decided I was going to try and streamline the moving process and then dedicate some time to researching and getting that new mattress to the house the day we moved. I was lucky to find a local moving company that not only was going to move our stuff in one day to the new house, they were going to help pack and unpack our belongings too. This left me with some free time to start my search for a new mattress. Our old mattress was about seven years old, and my husband would wake up each day with severe neck and back pain as a result. I am a pretty active sleeper, so during the night I tend to roll around, and this makes it hard for him to get a quality night’s sleep too.
The first thing I noticed when searching to buy a mattress online is the sheer volume of different websites that all claim to have the best prices, largest volume, and variety of manufacture brands. I wanted to buy a mattress that was not only comfortable for my husband, but for me as well. I stumbled onto www.cutpricemattresses.co.uk that in addition to selling mattresses, also had a free mattress buying guide. This was exactly what I needed to help me with my search considering the company was located near Birmingham and not right around the corner. I read that free mattress buying guide from cover to cover and I discovered that the gel mattresses help to eliminate pressure point pain by conforming to the shape of the body and equally distributing the weight.
That was exactly what my wife needed to get a better night sleep. Additionally, I learned from the gel mattress buying guide that gel mattresses wrap you in comfort, and keep you from rolling around during the night. This was a double win, and I knew I had found the perfect mattress for our new home. Now that I had determined the perfect mattress style for us to buy, I needed to coordinate with the company to see if it was possible for the mattress to be delivered on or around the last Friday of the month. After I found the right size mattress for our frame, I was amazed how quickly the order process was. I was already at the payment page in a few clicks, much faster and easier than I had initially imagined. I was able to choose my delivery date, and even spoke with a representative from the website about taking our old mattress during delivery.
The day of the move had quickly arrived, and I must say I was being pulled in every direction that day. I forgot all about the mattress delivery scheduled for that afternoon. I was dealing with estate agents, my solicitor, the movers, and all the details of getting the utilities put in our name. My wife was at work and asked me to just coordinate the movers that day, when all of a sudden the mattress guys showed up. Not only were they extremely professional, they were the most efficient crew I had seen. They asked me where to place the mattress, then asked about the old mattress, and were quickly on their way. My wife didn’t realize what I had done until she returned that evening!
Fast forward a few months, she still is raving about our new mattress. Seems I did a good job for once!
