Any advice ?

I have posted several times about my trials with a customizeable Talalay mattress and have given up on it. I'm currently trying a Logan & Cove, but not liking that either. It's a slight step in the right direction though. I'll return it soon. But I have to get rid of the Talalay and the various pads I've purchased in hopes of recuping some of my money so I can try a Ghost Luxe next.

I've posted on Kijiji and Marketplace without much luck or even interest. I realize it might be really difficult to sell a used mattress for anywhere close to what I paid. It's less than one year old. I paid around $1,800 and hoping to get at least $800.

Would appreciate any advice on price. I'm in Montreal btw.

Hi Lu1968.

Selling a mattress or components on the forum normally requires prior permission (see the forum rules here ) but since you meet all the other criteria I've decided to allow it "after the fact" in this case. Usually, interested subscribers would see your post and send you a PM, so you may want to watch your inbox as PM's do not send notifications.

It may also be worth listing it on the old Craigslist and eBay as well as Kijiji and Marketplace since there are many people that look for used mattresses/components to build their DIY. With the steep increase in prices many people are looking for a workaround to build a DIY with rescued components. As selling points, I'd research a few ways of sanitizing and provide the links in your posting, and provide the purchase date.

Thanks very much phoenix!

I thought there would be some rules on here about selling, so wasn't trying to do that here, but get some advice. Thanks for the tips.

I hadn't thought of sanitzing, so just included the fact that the mattress was protected by a mattress cover, non-smoking home, etc. I'll check into that.
