Many experts say that metal bunk beds are unsafe. This is because metal beds are not as sturdy and tend to wobble, dent and bend over the years due to weak joints. Essentially, a metal bunk bed may save you money but is not a good investment in the long run. Wood bunk beds are not without their problems. A good rule of thumb is the heavier the bed, the more likely it is to be sturdy and safe. Even with hardwood beds, screws and wing nuts can work loose over time. A properly designed bunk bed will have ample support braces to keep some of the pressure off of the bed's joints.
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!
