“I believe you deserve to know as much as possible about the quality of bed you’re buying. That’s why I’m happy to put my 10+ years' experience to work to produce and sell high-quality sleep products that ensure the most restful sleep. Your everyday success depends on it." - Bill Stoikos
Q: So, who is Bill anyway and why did he start this company?
A: I’m Bill and it’s nice to meet you! I’m an industry insider with 10+ years’ experience and I understand both the business and technical sides of what makes a great mattress.
I believe there’s a better way to produce and sell a mattress. I’ve worked for one of Canada’s - also the world’s - largest mattress manufacturers. My role was in materials management so I’ve worked with the largest suppliers in the world developing and selecting materials to be used in the mattress building process.
During this time my friends, family and just people you meet who know you’re in the industry were constantly asking me what mattress they should buy. They were all confused by the choices, materials and jargon used in the industry. This unfortunately was built into the industry as part of both manufacturers and retailers differentiating themselves. Manufacturers had their own trade names for the same material, their own spin on material used. The amount and specifications were rarely provided but only buzz words were provided. Latex, wool, silk, memory foam, titanium, etc. were added to the marketing materials. As well, retailers demanded exclusive products. The mattresses were slightly altered using different combinations of foam, material and fabric to differentiate them from another retailer. This took away the option to price match one mattress across different retailers. On top of this, a commissioned salesperson would greet them into an overwhelming showroom filled with a variety of choices.
I’ve decided to build a company that strips away the confusion, shows the customer exactly what is inside the products they're buying and provides clarity to a very cloudy industry. These high-quality products are shipped directly to their door through ordering online in the comfort of their own home.
Q: What makes this mattress-in-a-box different from all the other guys?
A: For starters, a Bill’s Bed is a 100% Canadian made, high quality two-sided mattress – plush on one side, firm on the other. And both sides are made from high quality memory foams, so you can flip it depending on how you’re feeling. I strongly believe sleeping well is critical to anyone’s success, so I’ve made it my business to make sure of it.
Q: What are Bill’s Beds made of?
A: Our 11” mattresses are made of high quality materials from world class suppliers right here in Canada. All foam is CertiPur certified.
Each mattress has a 7” 1.9-pound density core with a 2” 2.5-pound density firm memory foam topper on one side and a 2” plush 2.5-pound density material on the other.
Our mattress cover is knit, cut and sewn using Canadian labour. Our mattress foams are poured, cut and assembled in Canada. It comes with a zippered cover that can be removed and tossed into the washer and dryer.
Our metal frame is engineered, designed and made in Canada using recycled steel.
Our box spring is designed and manufactured in Canada, using lumber from Canadian sustainable forests and uses a cover that was cut and sewn in Canada.
Q: How can you send a whole mattress in the mail?
A: A Bill’s Bed uses new technology to compress and package each mattress, then fold and roll it into a golf bag-sized box that’s shipped directly by courier to your door – no showroom, middleman or commissioned sales people! The savings are then passed on to you. Believe it or not, we can also courier the box spring and bed frame.
Q: Is it easy to set up?
A: : It’s incredibly easy from selecting the right size to setting it up! Once it arrives you simply roll it onto the frame or box spring - the wrinkles settle themselves. Check out the how-to videos and you’ll see how simple it is.
Q: I’m not sure about buying a mattress online. What if I’m not happy with my mattress?
A: We want this to be the easiest decision you make all day, so I guarantee you’ll love it! That’s why you can count on our 100 night risk-free guarantee. Try it for 100 nights and if you’re sure it’s not right for you, we’ll pick it up hassle-free.
