$30,000 Mattress

A husband and wife came into our showroom looking for a new mattress. They drove from about an hour away and when they came in they told me they saw my mattress education video and was impressed. They said they had purchased three mattresses in the last ten years so they knew they didn’t want to go down that road again. The gentleman was a little stand-off-ish but like he was a little skeptical but he did admit my video is what brought him in. Before making any decision and while they were trying out the mattresses he told me they were looking a maybe purchasing a $30, 000 mattress hand-made in England and that it costs $30,000. I laughed and joked, “who can afford a $30,000 mattress?!” He replied, “That’s not a problem.”

I like telling this story because he made a purchase from me that day and I made sure I personally delivered it. This man and his wife owned three very nice homes. After about a year later they came back and bought another bed from me for another bedroom in their home because they liked the mattress they purchased from me so well. And over the next couple of years I sold about four mattresses from him and to several other members of his family by his referral. So, I like to brag that my mattress outsold a $30,000 hand-made mattress and I still saved him money. If that’s not a success story, I don’t know what is.

    1. We have a 60 day Comfort Assurance policy. This means you can firm it up or soften it in the first 60 days with a replacement layer and there is no charge. You don’t have to ship anything to us. Used mattresses can’t be resold so to take them back means a HUGE loss. Companies that do take back mattresses take a small loss because they are selling you plastic junk to begin with. Such plastic mattresses have a very short life because they soften with use. I hope this makes sense.

  1. Dear Mr Carter. I live in Arizona and I have seen your videos.already . I have a older but useable Leggitt and Platt split cal king base that I want to use. I am therefor looking for split cal king mattress. ( inch will do. You have me convinced to use LATEX. I therefor need split Cal Kings to go with the base wan. We are I am 85 and my wife is 78. We like medium and desire full width Latex for the mattress. we are confused as to how to proceed. From past we have had bad experience with roll up box delivered mattress. Can you provide delivery of mattress unrolled and take away of current mattress.
    Please excuse the unconventional form of contact. Thank you

    1. Hello Don and thanks for contacting us. We can most certainly provide the latex mattress of your dreams to fit your split cal. king adjustable bed. I’m sorry to hear you’ve had a bad experience with roll up drop ship mattresses in the past. I’d sure like to hear how you’ve had a bad experience and what the nature of that problem was. Anyhow, our mattresses are rolled up as this is the only way to ship them. We ship UPS and thus there is no way to carry off your old mattress either. Perhaps you could give it away and someone will come and get it from you. Anyhow, let me know if you have further questions.



      1. I just bought my 5th mattress from sleep essentials… 2 king, 3 queen, 2 adjustable frames, 3 flat. The very first mattress that I purchased was from a phone call… I never went into the store. I didn’t want to drive that far. I bought the first one years ago.. I had kidney surgery years before and I didn’t want to leave the hospital because of the adjustable hospital bed. If I came home, I would then have to use my weak stomach muscles (which had been cut) to get out of bed…. and that was painful. Fast forward several years, and it was time to buy a new bed… I knew that one day I’d be old… and I remembered how much I loved being able to lift my sore body up to get out of the bed. I started researching adjustable beds. I knew better than to put a regular mattress on an adjustable. But what should I do? I found Lee’s videos and knew that he was right about synthetic junk… I had to have real natural latex. My first purchase was a king size adjustable… My second, a queen adjustable. Then, everyone that slept on my guest room bed (queen adjustable) fell in love. I have purchased 3 more… and honestly when my other 2 (non-latex) beds meet their end of life, they will be replaced with a Sleep Essentials bed. I just believe in these people. I believe in their sincerity. I think Lee does an honest business. I know there are other places where you can buy a latex bed…. but I won’t. I will purchase from Sleep Essentials with my non-toxic latex, bamboo cover, and backing from the guy that was there first… Lee started selling these beds when they were NOT popular. He’s the kind of guy and business that I want to support. You won’t be disappointed in your bed. I brag on my bed to my friends. Know anyone else who does that? Strange, but true.

    Hi, Been watching you videos for thre years and hope to eventually get one of your mattresses as I had a latex bed in my youth and loved it. I do wonder why you ar enot affiliated with a company that would offer us long-term purchases at no interest. Do these plans cost you? I thought they were totally independent…I am talking of Synchrony or Commenity, etc. It enables those of us in reduced income brackets due to retirement the option of paying over time if we have good credit. I would have committed to you earlier had I had such an option. I do believe you offer a fabulous product and that you have provided a HUGE service to those of us who are open-minded enough to read and listen, altho it may be benefitting the recent companies springing up with 100% latex and offering financing. I suspect I am being naive to think that it doesnt cost you much….but it is bound to be better than in-house financing. I shall also investigate Paypal as they offer us no interest financing as well.
    Yours, Susan in Amherst

  3. I have been researching mattresses for some time now. I had been looking into the Avocado and IDLE mattresses. I was watching a video on mattress reviews and after it ended your’s came up. I couldn’t stop watching. Everything you were saying is 100% spot on and I have a great appreciation for people who can think outside the box and improve upon a product that is made of materials or chemicals that can negatively impact your health and later the environment and the quality doesn’t last. I grew up in the 70’s, and my first mattress was a latex mattress handed down from God knows when. My husband and I have had 2 horrible mattresses experiences (SEALY) in the last 3 years and we are miserable on the current one that we have had since January 2020. We literally cannot sleep another night on it. How quickly can you have one to us and do you offer Law Enforcement officers a discount? Thank you

    I have a TempurPedic mattress that is approximately 13 years old and was their middle-range I think it might have been called Rhapsody. I am 68 years old , five feet four inches tall and weigh 125 pounds a side sleeper and mostly sleep alone. Contrary to most, my mattress has not gotten softer rather it has gotten harder, and I often wake up with sore shoulders and hips. My Tempur-Pedic weighs so much that it takes two people really struggling to move it so one of my concerns is how much your mattress weighs. I want to be able to turn it by myself from head to foot occasionally for even wear. I also wonder how difficult it will be if I decide I need to return it. Obviously if it comes all rolled up for shipping I would have to do the same to return it and wonder if that is feasible.
