The independent voice of the global moving industry

A cardboard bed! Whatever next?

Jun 01, 2018
There is much talk in the moving industry about how people have less to move nowadays. People are less attached to furniture, we live in a more disposable world, shipments for international moves are becoming smaller and lighter and prices are depressed.

Cardboard bed baseThe Mover spotted this stroke of genius recently that rather nicely illustrates the problem: a cardboard bed.

The product is retailed by Happy Beds and is made entirely of recyclable cardboard. It can be erected in seconds with no tools and is available in four colours. The makers say it is designed with versatility in mind and can be easily moved or stored when not in use.  It is, they say, a proven seller across Europe.  It might be great news for landlords, students and global travellers but for movers: well it’s a sign of the times.
