In Bed With: The Sleeping Duck Box

Last month you met the Sleeping Duck team. However, this month it’s time to meet another important member of Sleeping Duck – the Sleeping Duck box.

What’s your role at Sleeping Duck?

I know the others in the office will tell it differently, but I’m basically the hardest working member of the Sleeping Duck team. I’m the one who ensures that the Sleeping Duck mattresses get delivered safely to all our customers. Plus I play a mean game of table tennis.

What are some of your best features?

Well I’m compact. Which means it’s easy to get me from your front door into your bedroom. I’m really practical too: I’m nice and solid and come with wheels, so it’s simple to maneuver me about.

Plus I’m really tough – like Jason Statham tough.

But beneath my sturdy exterior lies a soft centre – in the shape of a seriously comfortable mattress.

Oh and I love pets – kittens especially. They just love playing hide-and-seek with me.

What do you wish people knew about you?

Well I’m actually quite smart. Take this vacuum compression technology – it compresses the mattress to about one-fifth of its thickness, then the whole lot gets rolled up and slipped inside me.

Once you’ve unpacked your mattress, it expands back to its original size and shape, ready to give you your best night’s sleep on. It’s almost like magic, really.

What’s difficult about what you do?

I’ve had some weird looks when I’ve shown up at customers’ front doors. Often people aren’t expecting me to look like I do. In fact, one time someone even called Sleeping Duck HQ to ask whether they’d made a mistake!

And yes, that did hurt. But I understand why people think I’m strange. Sleeping Duck like to do things differently, and that includes the way your mattress gets delivered.

But once people get me inside, they can’t stop talking about me. Well, until they open the mattress. Then that’s all they can talk about.

We hope you enjoyed finding out a bit more about the Sleeping Duck box. If you’ve got any questions about our mattresses (or even our box) feel free to give us a call on 1800 667 196 for a chat with our friendly customer care team.

About us

Hatched in 2014, Sleeping Duck was founded by Melbourne-based engineers Winston Wijeyeratne and Selvam Sinnappan. Frustrated by the expensive, tedious, and confusing process of buying a bed, the duo took on the mattress industry.
