Good Morning John,

While we offer free shipping in the continental United States, shipping one of our beds to Canada we would charge approximately $199. The shipment would go out via USPS, and you would incur duties at the border. Feel free to give us a call for a complete quote on the sleep system your thinking about.

Remember, your dreams may vary. . .

Thanks a lot. Any idea what kind of duties fee would occur? Some US companies say there is no duties and others say there are, so I am a bit unsure...

It really depends on your area. I would ask the post office on your side. We would be shipping via USPS, which would have duties, it would however be less expensive than UPS or FED EX.

Hi John667.

You are welcome! This may change, but a few people stopped in midair with their US mattress purchase and decided to wait or switch to Canadian manufactures .....others chose to go ahead anyway.

I'd be interested to find out what you decide and if you go ahead with it I'd appreciate if you could return here and let us know about the border experience.

Thanks. I have to admit that a 10% fee + shipping fees and maybe provincial taxes, etc. got me thinking. Trade wars aren't funny. I'm not in a hurry so maybe things will get better soon. I'll keep you updated. Thanks for your great website.

Related questions to FloBeds. (I love the lifelong layer replacement program and that they have been doing all Talalay for so long):
1. I am Considering the 12" Deluxe Mattress, but my concern is the 2" convoluded comfort layer at a effective ild14 seems almost not functional. Is it possible to replace the convoluded layer with a 3" Talalay around ILD 19 on the initial order? We are trying to "replicate" a Pure Talalay Bliss "Beautiful" that I was told by the local store owner is 3" ILD 19, 3" ILD 30, 6" ILD 40. All blended Talalay.
2. With the above layer specs for the Pure Talalay Bliss, what is the recommended layer configuration to approximate it?
(240#, 6'1", side sleeper)
We originally liked the Posh+Lavish Refine Ultra Plush (3" Talalay ILD19, 3" Dunlop ILD 30, 6" Dunlop ILD 40). All blended latex. The basic difference to the Pure Talalay Bliss we like above, is that same ILD specs but the Pure Talaly Bliss was all Talalay. We liked it considerable more and now looking for an all Talalay solution.

FWiW the correct specs on the Posh+Lavish is 4” Talalay ILD 19, 4” Dunlop ILD 30 and 5” Dunlop ILA 40.
