Bringing Quality, Value, and Service to the Inland Empire!

July 20, 2017

We’ve pondered it for a long time…27 YEARS in fact…and it happened! Dreamland Family Mattress Too has opened in Upland California! Catering to the families of the Inland Empire and providing the quality and service that you deserve without breaking the bank!

Bruce has been in the mattress business for well over 30 years on both the retail and wholesale sides. He’s worked for manufacturers like Serta, Simmons, and Sealy. He knows the industry from the inside out and feels that most customers are unaware of often times deceptive policies of retailers. He originally opened Dreamland as a “Last Bastion Of Hope” for his clients.

The bottom line is that customers need to be able to by a new mattress, with a factory warranty…covered directly by the manufacturer, that has equal parts of quality and value, and additionally addresses many of the Eco-friendly issues that many folks worry about today!

At Dreamland service is a top priority as their reviews on Yelp, Google, and Facebook demonstrate. If there is an issue, Dreamland just fixes it.

Quality sleep systems, Eco-friendly materials, low prices, and outstanding customer service has made Dreamland one of the longest running family owned and operated Bedding stores in Southern California!

California Mattress Recycling Fee…Like Recycling Cans? Not really…

January 7, 2016

MRC

So…December 30th, 2015 begins the California Mattress Recycle Fee to help promote recycling of mattresses. This is a charge of $11.00 per piece for every mattress and foundation sold in the state of California.

California’s Used Mattress Recovery and Recycling Act (enacted in 2013 and amended in 2014) requires mattress manufacturers to create a statewide recycling program for mattresses discarded in the state. The Program will be funded through an $11 recycling fee collected from consumers when a mattress or box spring is sold beginning Dec. 30, 2015.  The Mattress Recycling Council (MRC) is a non-profit organization established by the mattress industry that has been certified by CalRecycle to develop and administer the Program.”

On the surface we like this idea. Mattress recycling has got to be a HUGE issue. Originally, we thought that this fee was not only going to assist in recycling mattresses, but as a side effect it could go a long way to helping to curb the proliferation of used and rebuilt mattresses in the marketplace. But does it really do that? We’re not so sure.

Currently there are many manufacturers that make rebuilt and sanitized mattresses in the California market. We at Dreamland aren’t fans of the rebuilt industry. We’ve all seen trucks of every size and shape laden with used mattresses driving down the street. Chances are excellent that the mattresses on these trucks aren’t heading to recycling centers, rather they are going to companies that “rebuild” these old mattresses to be sold again to the consumer. On average companies pay about $5 per piece for these used mattresses and foundations.

So one might think that with a new “CRV” for mattresses that these trucks full of used mattresses would be encouraged to return these beds to the state appointed recycling centers to redeem the $11 fee much in the way that we recycle aluminum cans. Even if the recycle refund was $7, leaving $4 per mattress and box to fund the operating expenses of the state, it would be much more beneficial to recycle the mattresses rather then taking them to be rebuilt. Kill 2 birds with one stone…promote recycling and reduce the used bedding market…right? Not so much.

If a guy with a truck filled with mattresses and boxes goes to one of the state appointed recycling centers to turn mattresses in…they get zero. No recycle refund of any kind. So what does that mean? That means they will continue to take used mattresses and boxes to companies to be added to the consumer market again. And of course those mattresses don’t get recycled. We suppose it could be argued that having them rebuilt is in a sense recycling. But certainly not in the way the state would or should want it to be.

So now, let’s say a consumer who has paid the recycling fee wants to turn in their mattress themselves and recycle it and recoup the fee, or a portion of the fee, that they have paid at the time of purchase. What do they receive? Again, they get zero. Why would John Q. Public want to hump this old mattress way across town to recycle it? They get not a dime, and they have to do work to get it there. Additionally they are not required to do so. There is nothing in the new legislation that requires mattresses to be recycled.

How about the vendors that sell mattresses? We have to charge the consumer the fee, but even we are not required to recycle mattresses. We are required to pick up used mattresses from the consumer, for a fee, if requested by the consumer to do so. But we do not have to take them to a recycling center.

What do manufacturers need to do? Nothing, nada, zilch, zip…not a thing. Has anything changed in the rebuild industry at all? The answer to that simple question is no.

Some might be inclined to ask, if this is a recycle fee based on recycling, then why on Earth would I have to pay it at the time of purchase like a tax? Why not charge it at the time of recycle? Is it because no one is actually required to recycle?

That, my friends, is a question that we here at Dreamland cannot answer. We are simply to charge the customer and give the money over to the MRC. If you have questions about this, feel free to contact your congressman or senator. I have to be honest…I don’t ever remember voting on this legislation, and believe me, if legislation has the word mattress anywhere near it, I would have seen it!

All in all, does this legislation really address the issue of recycling? Not much from what I’ve seen. But admittedly I haven’t seen it all, so the jury is still out…I just hope that it isn’t a kangaroo court!

Yelp Customer Review!

April 27, 2012

5 Star Rating

My boyfriend and I were shopping for a new mattress and the first place we went to was our local Sit N Sleep. We “thought” we got a good deal on a mattress and we put half down on it because we still wanted to visit Dreamland before we made our final choice.  We had two friends previously buy mattresses from Dreamland and they were extremely pleased.

Needless to say, we cancelled our Sit n Sleep order the same day we went to Dreamland.  Bruce is the owner and he is such a nice guy and extremely helpful in helping you find the best mattress for your needs and price range.  We ended up getting an even better deal as well as a better mattress than what we would have gotten at another place.  Bruce was also nice enough to give us a free metal bed frame, free next day delivery along with set up and haul away of our old mattress.

If you are looking for a new mattress, do yourself a favor and go visit Bruce at Dreamland. I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed! Both my b/f and I are sleeping better than we have ever slept!

Mattress Mans Dreamland Guide For Buying A Mattress

April 27, 2012

Getting started

It’s a pretty good guess to say that you already are having issues with comfort or you wouldn’t be looking to buy a new mattress set.  Most people sleep on their mattresses at least 2-3 years too long. You use your mattress more than any other product you own with the exception of your refrigerator, and that’s only because it never turns off. The average person will use their mattress 6-9 hours a night, 365 days a year.  Use this mattress guide to help you get the rest and comfort that let’s you wake up feeling rested and invigorated! Your Dreamland sleep specialist will be happy to provide you with specification information, but you are the ONLY one who can truly pick the correct mattress for you.
Choosing the right size

Sizing on mattresses are completely standardized. Standard mattress dimensions are king, 76×80 inches; California king, 72×84 inches; queen, 60×80 inches; full, or double, 53×75 inches,  twin, 38×75 inches, and extra long twin, 38×80. If you are looking for a double or full size…remember to think about the height of the sleeper. This is true with twin sizes as well, if a sleeper is 6 feet tall…it’s likely that a full or twin will not be long enough.
Try an Innerspring  first

An innerspring mattress is the most common choice and often the least expensive. Time tested…we have a very good idea of how long these products retain their vitality and comfort. Visco-Elastic memory foam,  is heat-sensitive and conforms to your body. Tempur-Pedic is the big name, but there are many other brands that use the same and in some cases superior foam components.  Another option is latex, a natural rubber product known for it’s conforming support, durability, and Eco-friendliness.
Decide where to shop

Never buy a mattress online. If you can’t lay on it…don’t buy it. That goes for stores like Costco or Sam’s club where you can’t try the product out.

Department stores and chain mattress stores have frequent “sales” and the typical smaller selection of 4 or 5 brands mostly relying on the “S” brands, but they can be crowded, cluttered, and short on sales help. As an independent bedding specialist, Dreamland Mattress offers plenty of variety and a wealth of mattress knowledge. Having a store in the same location for over 2 decades will do that for you!
The private labeling name game

Manufacturers private label mattresses for a variety of sellers, changing the color, padding, quilting pattern, and so forth, thus making it impossible to comparison shop. Each retailer can call the mattress by a different name. Consumers are the losers. Yes…it’s horrible, but completely legal. At Dreamland Mattress, we hate this…it does absolutely nothing for the consumer.
Choosing the right feel

Be careful with what the mattress companies refer to as “plush” or “firm”…you know what you like. One company’s ultra-plush might be another companies super-soft. At one time orthopedists recommended sleeping on a very firm mattress, but the views on support have changed over time.  The director of the Stanford University Center for Human Sleep Research says “The best surface is purely subjective”.

If a mattress is too firm, it won’t support the body evenly and may cause discomfort at the heaviest points (hips and shoulders). If it’s too soft, a sleeper could sink into the surface and have a hard time moving, which could cause tingling, numbness, or aches.

The leading professor of ergonomics at Cornell University, noted that the best mattress supports the spine evenly at all points while allowing it to maintain its natural curve. By age 40, skin loses elasticity and becomes more sensitive to pressure points, so a softer, more cushioned sleep surface is more comfortable. “Slightly softer works better because there’s less compression on the skin,” he said. In this case a “luxury firm” or “cushion firm” or “pillowtop” may be a better choice.

Certainly take suggestions from your sleep specialist at Dreamland, but always remember…you are the best determiner of what feels right to you.
Lay down on it! The in-store test

Don’t be embarrassed, TRY the bed out! Don’t be shy. Wear looser fitting clothes and shoes that you can take off easily. Spend a good 5 minutes on each side and on your back as well.  If you sleep on your stomach, try the in-store bed on your stomach as well. Spending a few extra minutes in the store lying on a bed gives you a much better chance of finding the best bed for your needs.

Do you even NEED to buy a new box?

If your current foundation is only a few years old, consider using it with a new mattress. boxes normally outlast mattresses 3 to 1.

If your new mattress is really thick, you might consider purchasing it with “low profile” foundation, 4 to 6 inches thick. Many companies charge extra for these custom foundations. At Dreamland Mattress, there is no additional charge for the custom boxes.

Warranties

They cover defects in materials and workmanship, not comfort or normal wear. They’re usually in effect for 10 years to 20 years. Some warranties don’t cover full replacement value; instead an annual usage charge is deducted from the current retail price. Those are called limited warranties. Tempur-pedic’s 20 year warranty is an example of a limited warranty. After the first year is passed it will cost you money to have your mattress repaired.

Not so with most mattress warranties at Dreamland. We carry mattresses with non-prorated warranties. That mean fixed or replaced for FREE for the entire length of the warranty, normally between 10-20 years in length. Not included in warranties are things you DO to the mattress…namely rips, tears, stains, and burns.

When you make a claim, the store or manufacturer sends an inspector to your house. You’ll need to show a receipt. If you say the mattress has sagged, the inspector checks whether the dip is below the allowable limit, 1 1/2 inches. A company will void a warranty if you remove the “do not remove” tag, if the mattress is soiled, or if it has uneven support from a box spring or frame–a common reason for sagging, says Stan Steinreich, a Simmons spokesman.
Wait for a sale, and bargain

Specialty mattresses usually have a set price, but you can save at least 50 percent off list price for an innerspring at Dreamland. Ads for “blowout” sales make such events sound rare. But at Dreamland they aren’t. If the price is good, buy; if not, wait. We have an extremely low pressure sales team. Don’t fall for high pressure sales techniques that are used by major retailers.

An advertised “bargain” may not be all it seems, so check it out. A flyer we saw for a mattress store touted 75 percent savings on mattresses, but a footnote showed that the list price from which the discount was figured “may not be based on real sales.”


Make the deal

Ask about removal of your old mattress (some store delivery personnel will take it to the curb, or charge to haul it away). Some companies charge as much as $100 for local delivery and as much as $25 each piece for removal of the old mattress set. Dreamland Mattress will do local delivery, set up, AND haul away for only $40.
