What to Look for in a Mattress Vendor

Searching for the Right Mattress VendorA product is only as good as its manufacturer, and your buying experience is only as good as your vendor.

That's why it matters who you choose to buy your mattresses and bedding from.

If you're not sure what you should be looking for in a mattress vendor, we have a few pointers. Here are 5 traits you should keep in mind.


Don't let a vendor tell you only what you want to hear. When it comes to buying mattresses, you need the truth. The right vendor will give you that.

If you ask a vendor, "Is this mattress bed bug proof?" they should be able to not only say yes, but also tell you why. If you request to look at a spec sheet, the right vendor won't hesitate to show you one.


If a vendor has been around for awhile, you can assume they're doing something right. Check to see when your vendor started their business and how the company has developed since its beginning. Has the company grown or shrunk? Have they changed directions, expanded services, or continued with the same mission?

Experience translates to product knowledge and industry expertise, so it's a valuable characteristic to have in a vendor.


Look for a mattress vendor who has positive reviews from their customers. Peoples' opinion of or experience with a business often represents how well a business understands their customer base. And if a business understands its customers, that business can deliver what its customers need.


Look to see who your vendor is affiliated with. Do they partner with prestigious organizations or companies? If both partners have good reputations, business partnerships suggest that a company is reliable and trustworthy.

Also, find out if there is a third party organization that tests your vendor's products or otherwise holds them to some type of quality standard. A vendor that's held accountable isn't going to cut corners on their products.
