3 Simple Steps to Sell Mattresses For Free
Clear Retail Floor Space – typically 7′ x 12′ is enough to display multiple models.
Receive Inventory and Retail Signs – Mattresses will be delivered by semi and your signs will arrive via UPS/Fed-Ex.
Shout from the roof-tops that you have NEW mattresses! The PAY US AFTER YOU SELL THEM
Why The ABS System Is So Effective!
Which models you carry is an important detail. We like to keep things as simple as possible for you, and for your customer. A typical line-up will fit one of these two categories:
We are partners, and will make this decision together.
You know your customers and we know the mattresses very well. Working together we will find the perfect combination of price/comfort.
Purchasing is another simple process. There are multiple ways you can submit an order. You may choose the one that best suits your workflow.
- You may fax/e-mail the inventory tracking form to us. This will show the order quantities for your re-stock
- You may use our online ordering portal. You can use the portal from any computer, tablet or mobile device that can access the internet.
Once your order has been submitted we will process it and send you an invoice for the items that have sold.
Tracking your inventory and sales is a simple process. We provide you with an inventory tracker that will allow you, or an employee/volunteer, to track what you have in stock and what needs to be re-ordered.
This simple form allows you to maintain a standard inventory level in your location(s). A standard level of inventory reduces the confusion of tracking what has sold. Additional inventory is always available.
Deliveries can be weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. Within a short time you will see a rhythm develop with your sales. Different times of year will cause sales to speed up; tax refund season is a great example.
Keeping things simple and easy to manage is important, so most organizations choose a regular time frame to take inventory and place re-stock orders.
All deliveries arrive on a 53′ semi. You will be notified in advance of your delivery day so you can schedule the necessary help for unloading. Drivers will assist you by bringing the inventory directly to the tail of the trailer for easy offloading.

Every day one in ten of your customers are in the market for a new mattress.
The mattress industry reports Billions in sales in the U.S. alone. The typical consumer is spending around $1,000 or more on the average queen size mattress set. With American Bedding Solutions as your partner you will be selling retail prices you will be offering begin under $200 and range up to $650. (would you rather spend $1,000 or $650?……Exactly!) Profits on these are significant.
According to industry statistics, one of every ten shoppers will purchase a mattress in a given year. In addition, the average home has 4+ mattresses in it! People need and want new bedding for a number of reasons…divorce, shared custody, second homes, out-of-town guests, etc. What’s more, most consumers buy a new mattress every five to eight years, and they shop an average of just 1.6 stores before purchasing.
If you don’t carry mattresses in your stores, it’s time to ask yourself why.
The Risks Of Selling Used
Used mattresses are unappealing for a number of reasons:
- Potential allergen exposure
- Potential bedbug infestation (a risk for your store as well)
- Sanitization odors
- Discolorations or stains
- Cost of sanitizing used bedding
- Cost for disposal of donated bedding that is too worn or soiled

Our Program Works; Simplyread Linda's experience below
Our experience with American Bedding Solutions has been fabulous. I have sold mattresses for about 10 years now through local furniture stores, and these are the easiest to sell yet.
Working with the team at ABS has been great. They are always eager to hear our thoughts on how they can improve, and get right back to me whenever I have questions or issues. They have gone above and beyond to make this work smoothly for us, even meeting a late truck at my store to help unload on a snowy night. They listen to our suggestions and are upgrading and improving their system all the time.
Results speak for themselves;my sales on bedding in the last 5 months, have quadrupled!
I am very pleased with American Bedding Solutions, and know we made the right choice switching to them for our mattress line up.Linda M.
