Bed or Mattress Hire for 1 week?

Post by Sat&Susan » Tue, 21 Aug 2012 10:29 am

Hi,
I live in a condo on the east coast. We have some family members coming to visit us in Singapore from the UK next week.

Is it possible to hire beds or even just a mattress? It is only for one week. Doesn't make sense to buy a bed for one week only. Need one large and one single, though worst case - a large matress may suffice

Any help will be appreciated

Thanks
Sat

I believe you can find them in Giant. Don't know if they have multiple sizes or not, but I've seen adverts in the past for single & queen sized ones. Probably in the neighbourhood of 100~150 depending on size.

This advert was from Feb 2011.... right side middle of page

Thanks. I was actually after a normal bed rather than air mattress. Also I was looking to hire one rather than purchase it

If you've never slept on one of the big air inflatible mattresses, you would be in for a surprise. The best part is they wouldn't cost anymore than the rental of a bed for a week, if you could find one, and you would have it available anytime in the future should the need arise. I used to have a good friend in Bangkok who had one that I'd use whenever I went up there, and frankly, they aren't bad at all.

You are probably right, I'm unlikely to find a normal bed just for a week. The transport costs will probably not be worth it either.

Will have a look at some air matresses.

Thanks a lot.
