The Most Important Question!

The Most Important Question!

David Keam, President of the Best Sleep would like you take a minute to listen to his video on the 'Most Important Question' any mattresses sales person can ask you.

"Let's face it we're not really comfortable asking anyone, especially a female customer, what they weigh! Yet this is probably the most important question to consider when buying you are buying new mattress. So let's get real!

We specialize in building beds for larger customers and if we can build a bed for someone who weighs 525lbs. like we did for our friend Hal Anderson many years ago when we created the Hal Anderson bed well we can do it for people who weigh less and uh you know we've done a lot of that so we have beds in here that are designed for people who are 500 pounds, 400 pounds, 300 pounds, and 110 pounds but the question how much do you weigh is the same thing that you should expect when you go in to see a tailor and they take out a tape measure and they measure your shoulders.

if I’m going to build your suit and I don't care to measure your shoulders and your hips I’m just winging it aren't I. There are better materials available for larger people and you know you don't need the same materials necessarily for smaller people but the simple matter is this I have people in my store every day who spent $1000, $2000, $3000 up and down the street and they were sold products that didn't have the material in the bed that actually worked for the customer standing in front of me.

if you weigh 260 pounds or 350 pounds you need at least one inch or two of latex of rubber of car tire of tree sap. The material weighs four pounds per square foot and it is what you need when you're not 120 pounds soaking wet. Now if you happen to be in the category where the partner's 120 pounds and the other partner's 260 pounds you definitely need latex in your mattress so that that person doesn't realize every movement that you make so something you might be interested in would have 2000 or 3000 or 5000 coils in it and no latex or some latex or just you know even 1000 coils with latex the more you can afford the better the bed will be the longer it'll last the less it'll actually cost in the long run.

How much do you weigh? It's probably the most important question your salesperson can ask you and if you're a female I am sorry that's just the way it is, we'll probably ask you when you walk in the door at Best Sleep Centre.
