Moving a Mattress - Will it fit inside a ReloCube?

This may be one of the most popular questions our customers ask. And the answer is YES.   Any standard-size mattress will fit inside a ReloCube (or a trailer).

The internal dimensions of a ReloCube are 70" x 83" x 93" (lwh)

Standard mattress sizes are:

Crib Mattress:  28" x 52"
Twin Mattress:  39" x 75"
XL Twin Mattress:  36" x 80"
Full Mattress:  54" x 75"
XL Full Mattress:  54" x 80"
Queen Mattress:  60" x 80"
King Mattress: 76" x 80"
Cal- King Mattress:  72" x 84"
King Split Mattress:   76" x 80"

(mattress depth varies from 9-10" for a standard to 15-16" + for a pillow top)

Most customers first cover their mattress in a protective mattress bag and stand it upright or on its side inside the ReloCube.  It's normally the first thing loaded.  We recommend securing the mattress to the wall of the Cube using utility rope or straps (this will keep it from toppling over).  There are plenty of tie-down points inside for securing it properly.

Please note that if you're moving a Tempur-Pedic® mattress, it requires special care.  You should lay it flat — not on its side or folded. If you have questions about the best way to move other specific brands of mattresses, it's a good idea to check with the mattress manufacturer.  Some of the most common are:
