Bedding / January 15, 2019 / Amie Thibault
Is at least one of your children old enough to sleep in the top of the bunk bed? While bunk beds can be a great choice for kids, the sheer height of a top bunk bed makes it unsafe for a younger child who still rolls out of bed. If you are going to purchase a bed now, and you have any fears at all that your child may be at risk on the top of a bunk bed, then consider the trundle bed more seriously, or wait until your children are old enough to handle the higher sleeping height. Many manufacturers recommend a child be over six years or age before you consider purchasing a bunk bed for use by a child.
Cost of Shipping. Shopping online has become a national pastime. Online bunk bed shopping can be extremely convenient because the customer does not have to haul the heavy bed home. Unfortunately, the cost of shipping the bed directly to your door can also be cost prohibitive. That is why it is important when shopping online to check a dealer's shipping policy before purchasing a bed. Doing business with a company that offers free bunk bed shipping or flat rate shipping can save hundreds of dollars off the cost of a new bunk bed!
