  • I personally would Not buy a used mattress, but you can always put it out there. You never know, someone might desperatly need one on the cheap.

  • In years past we have been so broke we had to buy a reconditioned mattress. It had been recovered, springs tightened and then sanitized and sealed in a bag. That is the only second hand mattress I would buy. Too much risk from bedbugs, mites or lice.

  • We sold my dad's through craigslist. Then again, he bought it in August and died in November and it was still in the plastic. Make sure there are no stains or signs of bedbugs.

  • No I wouldn't. I would buy the frame, head and foot board. But not the mattress.
