WHAT ABOUT THE GAP THAT WOULD FORM BETWEEN THE MATTRESS AND THE FOAM?
Due to the construction of the foam and the way it will sit on the bed, the foam will not shift at all. Additionally, use of the zippered mattress cover (provided in your bigg-a-bed-package), in combination with a mattress topper and fitted bottom sheet should prevent a gap from ever forming.
HOW DO I SET UP THE BIGG-A-BED FRAME?
A written step-by-step guide is available on our Installation Guide page. It will be simple, and should take less than 2 minutes!
I’M WORRIED ABOUT HOW WELL SUPPORTED THE PART OF MY MATTRESS THAT IS ON THE BIGG-A-BED FRAME WILL FEEL.
Don’t be! The design has been stress tested for safety and weight-bearing capabilities. It will feel as stable as the dorm bed frame.
DO YOU HAVE ANY DISCOUNTS?
If you sign up in our opening year, you’ll get $25 off every additional year you order!
We will also do bulk discounts! If you feel you are part of an organization that would qualify for a bulk discount, please fill out our contact form.
WON’T THE FOAM MATTRESS EXTENDER AND MATTRESS TOPPER GET DIRTY?
All packages that include the foam mattress extension or a mattress topper will also include a waterproof mattress cover that must be used. These waterproof mattress covers will be washed and replaced as needed.
HOW DO I GET MY BIGG-A-BED AT THE START OF EACH YEAR, AND THEN WHAT DO I DO WITH IT AT THE END OF THE YEAR?
You will be asked to provide your date and estimated time of arrival when you sign up on the bigg-a-bed website. Your chosen bigg-a-bed package will be ready to pick up at that date and time. Pickup locations are still to be determined. At the end of the school year your package can be dropped off (again, location to be determined).
There will also be a "Campus Storage" option; for an additional fee, the Campus Storage business will pick up your bigg-a-bed package at the end of the year, and drop it off at the start of the following term.
WHAT IF I WANT TO BRING MY OWN MATTRESS?
There will be a package option that contains only the bigg-a-bed frame system. For an additional fee, the Campus Storage business will also come by to take the college's mattress out of your room before you arrive at school. The college mattress will then be returned before the end of school.
WHAT IF I'M STAYING FOR GRADUATION / SENIOR WEEK?
That's definitely the one week of the year you'll be needing the most sleep, so we want to make sure you still have your Bigg-A-Bed! If you're staying for graduation / senior week, please note that at checkout, and we will contact you for special arrangements.
WHAT SIZE OF SHEETS WILL FIT MY BED?
The final dimensions of a Bigg-A-Bed will be 51" x 80" x (7" + height of the mattress topper). Full (not Full XL) Sheets SHOULD be sufficient with a pocket-size deeper than the estimated height of your bed in total. Check the dimensions of your sheets, although close enough is often good enough. Full XL and Queen size sheets will definitely fit. We highly suggest fitted sheets.
