I'm stuck with a mattress

Post by terrymc » Sat, 25 Jul 2009 9:35 pm

After posting many classifields on different websites, did garage sale as well, I can't find the way to sell the last item called a queen size mattress.

Anyone have an idea of how to sell it.
Some will say that I can donate but this an expensive one. :(

Thanks

It's only expensive to you. It's a used mattress to everyone else. Especially, not knowing who or what's been on it or soaked into it. Used mattresses are usually hard to sell for that reason. Has it been fumigated? (might be easier to sell that way) You might try cash converters (google it - there are several locations in Singapore)

my last choice will be to give it to charity.
Anyone knows some welfare organisation?

You could drop it off at the Salvation Army on upper Bukit Timah ( Ithink). Fumigate and wrap it and I am sure they will find a use for it

Try selling it in renovation forums like renotalk, lots of starter families looking for 2nd hand stuff there.
