New “Tech” Mattress Companies disrupting the sleep industry...

As movers know it sometimes is impossible to get a mattress (or more likely boxspring) into a small hallway, stairway, or small elevator. And if you want to move “just” a mattress and boxspring you are looking at a 2 or 3 hour minimum with 2 movers.
