Is the World Going Crazy? Exploring the Hidden Expenses of Cheap Beds

Every day, we receive calls from potential customers comparing us to their favorite mattress-in-a-box companies.

With a multitude of options flooding the market, it's easy to feel overwhelmed. Some states even impose recycling fees and disposal regulations on these products. In this article, we'll shed light on what you need to consider when purchasing a mattress.

Company Experience Matters: When evaluating a mattress provider, consider how long they've been in business. Sterling, for instance, boasts a rich 35-year history. Experience counts, and it's a testament to our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.

Size and Reputation in the Industry: While we may not be industry giants like Simmons, Sealy, or Serta, our enduring presence speaks volumes about the trust our customers place in us. We prioritize your needs over brand recognition.

Investing in Quality Sleep: A mattress isn't just a place to rest your head; it's an investment in a good night's sleep. We believe in helping you choose a mattress that fits both your budget and your sleep requirements. Our dedication to informed decision-making sets us apart.

Warranty Matters: Before purchasing, carefully review the warranty, both from the store and the manufacturer. Many assumptions about coverage can lead to unexpected costs. We encourage customers to reach out with questions to ensure complete clarity.

Longevity of Our Beds: The industry standard suggests that a mattress should last 8-10 years. However, our innerspring beds, designed for the hotel industry, often exceed this expectation, lasting 15-20 years. Our waterbeds are even more durable, with lifespans of 30+ years, defying industry norms.

Minimizing Returns and Waste: Unlike most mattress companies with a high return rate, we pride ourselves on our nearly 0% return rate. We achieve this by offering discounted parts to tailor your bed's comfort, minimizing waste and reducing the environmental impact.

Recycle Fees Explained: In some states like California, Connecticut, and Rhode Island, recycling fees are imposed on mattresses. While we collect a $10.50 recycle fee per mattress and box spring in California, most major cities already offer free pickup and disposal services. We can't refurbish or resell used mattresses, emphasizing the importance of responsible disposal.

The Resilience of Waterbeds: Waterbeds, often associated with the '60s and '70s, remain a core offering for us. Their unique design minimizes pressure points and promotes proper spinal alignment, ensuring restorative sleep.

Why Sterling's Prices Differ: Our commitment to quality and durability sets us apart from bed-in-a-box competitors. We build high-quality products with interchangeable parts, allowing you to replace only what's necessary, reducing long-term costs.

Eco-Friendly Initiatives: We've been implementing eco-friendly practices since day one, consistently reducing waste and recycling materials. It's a commitment to both quality and environmental responsibility.

Choosing Sterling: If you seek a company that prioritizes product quality, customer service, and sustainability, Sterling is the right choice. We're dedicated to educating customers, selling directly from our factory, offering discounts on replacement parts, and providing genuine assistance. Our products are made in the USA, and our employees are passionate about the products we create and sell.

Closing Remarks: If you prefer paying a premium through a retailer, receiving products based on commission, or facing the hassle of returning entire beds, that's your prerogative. However, if you value quality, personalized service, and the assurance that we're here to help, Sterling is your trusted partner in sleep.
