In this page, you will learn what a mattress in a box is, how it comes in a box and why, and how you go about selecting a mattress in a box.

What is a Mattress in a Box?

A Mattress in a Box is your favourite mattress delivered in the most convenient way - in a box or in a bag. Let’s take the Nectar Mattress - this is a 5 layer foam mattress that is designed with your pressure relief, comfort and support in mind. The box is then delivered to your doorstep, where all you have to do is take it out of the box,...

...lay it down and let it expand. The ease of assembly and the convenience of delivery is what has contributed to the rise of the popularity of a whole mattress in a box. Furthermore, you can eliminate the middlemen and the high markups when you buy directly from the brand. That isn’t all!

Should you buy a Mattress in a Box?

If you are one who values convenience and quality over the status quo in mattress delivery, then yes, the mattress in a box is right for you. Here are all the benefits of choosing the Nectar memory foam mattress in a box.


A mattress in a box may be a cheaper option as you avoid unnecessary markups, circumvent the middlemen and buy directly from the brand. You can also leverage the various sales and coupons that are made available, especially around the holidays.


The mattress comes to your doorstep by mail! You buy it online and wait for it to be delivered home at your convenience. There is no more tugging and lugging a mattress up the stairs. It is just sipping on your coffee and waiting for fast deliveries when you are home.


You have the freedom to do all the research you need online. You can compare and contrast between different brands, different mattress types and prices. You don’t have to listen to jargon-filled sales pitches but trust your own research. You can also wait for sales when prices are slashed even further.


Not everyone finds their perfect mattress on their first try. (...Not everyone buying a Nectar that is!) However, if you buy a mattress online and it isn’t up to your expectations, just return it. It's that easy!


The benefits you get from buying directly from the brand are enormous. From lengthy free trial periods to long warranties, you can best believe that you are looked out for. The best thing about buying a mattress in a box from the brand of your choosing, you get to choose the benefits that work best for you.


The mattress in a box is innovative thinking keeping the customer’s best interests in mind. It has changed the way customers buy a mattress online, their experience with the mattress and has drastically changed what can be expected in a mattress purchase. Then, why not indulge?

Forever Warranty

How can we afford Forever? We built our bed with better materials and a better base than other mattresses out there. We knew from the start that we wanted to build a mattress that our customers would want to sleep on and one that they wouldn’t have to worry would lose quality after the first 5 or 10 years. That’s why we invested in premium materials that cost more to use and ship, but to us, your satisfaction is worth it. That’s also why we guarantee the quality of construction and materials of every Nectar mattress for the full life of use of the mattress by the original owner. read

365 Night Trail Period

The best part about Nectar’s mattress in a box? That year-long trial period! Yes, you read that correctly. Enjoy the Nectar’s mail order mattress in the comfort of your home (you can take it out of the box) for an entire year, and, if you decide that the medium-firm feel or the mattress itself is not the right fit for you, you can return it. It’s risk-free. You may wonder how we’re able to afford such a long trial period that’s three times longer than our competitors and the answer is easy: fewer than three percent of Nectar sleepers return their mattress. It’s just too good to give up. read
