Choosing the Right Mattress Carton

When moving home, especially if you're relocating to another state or internationally, you are going to need to provide extra protection for your family's mattresses. New Haven Moving Equipment supplies a full range of mattress cartons for your single/twin, full/double, queen, king and crib mattresses.

High quality corrugated moving boxes for your delicate mattresses

To ensure maximum protection for the spring mechanisms and fabric, your mattresses require just as much protection as any of your other fragile household items.

Our heavy duty, strength tested corrugated mattress cartons are perfect for this task.

If you still have the plastic wrapping your mattress was sold in, you should first place your mattress within this. Alternatively, or for an additional layer of protection, we also sell Pak'N'Move® mattress bags.

You can then slide your mattress carton over the top of your mattress before sealing it shut. The exception is with queen and king mattress cartons. You will need to order two pieces per mattress because these are essentially two parts of one big box.

Once you have lifted your queen or king size mattress into one box, you can then slide the second box over the top to provide a robust protective layer

Understanding mattress sizes

Mattresses of the same size are often given different names so it is not surprising that many people get confused when buying them (or the mattress cartons to store them in)

In reality, mattress sizing is pretty simple as there are only a limited number of types. New Haven stocks mattress cartons for the five most popular mattress sizes, as follows:

CRIB MATTRESSES

Crib mattresses are 27 inches wide and 52 inches long and are suitable for both babies and toddlers.

SINGLE/TWIN MATTRESSES

Single mattresses and twin mattresses are exactly the same thing. They are mattresses designed for one person, so the term single mattress is most logical. Referring to two single mattresses as twin mattresses can help to avoid confusion when placing big orders for hotels where twin rooms refer to rooms containing two single beds.

Single/twin mattresses measure 39 inches x 75 inches (96.5cm x 190.5cm)

FULL/DOUBLE MATTRESSES

Full and double mattresses are also one and the same thing. They are the same length as a single mattress but 15 inches wider to accommodate two people sharing.

Full/double mattresses measure 54 inches x 75 inches (134.5cm x 190.5cm)

QUEEN MATTRESSES

Queen mattresses are both longer and wider than a standard double mattress. The dimensions are 60 inches x 80 inches (152.5cm x 203.5cm)

KING MATTRESSES

King mattresses are the same length as queen mattresses but 16 inches wider. The dimensions are 76 inches x 80 inches (193cm x 203.5cm).
