Giant Bean Bag – Shipping

Ever wondered how the ship those giant bean bags? Well, a lot of times it doesn’t come in one box. It actually comes in two or more boxes. Why two boxes? Well it helps to understand what exactly comes in the boxes. In one box, there is the bean bags’ microsuede cover. The cover is the luxurious microsuede exterior that you see when you see the bean bags online. Also inside that box is the liner. This liner is made of regular cotton and isn’t really meant to look pretty. What it does is hold the giant bean bags’ foam together in case you need to take the cover off of to clean it.

In the second box, is the actual foam for the giant bean bags. When you get the shipment, you take the foam, put it in the liner, and put the liner in the microsuede cover. Let it fill with air for about a day and you’re ready to go!

Giant Bean Bag Bed

One of the most interesting things we shipped today was a bean bag be from giant-bean-bags.com. They are quite huge. In fact, they probably wouldn’t even fit in most rooms, so make sure you have space for it!

Sizing Up Room for the Bean Bag

These bean bag beds measure 8 feet long by 8 feet wide and site about 2 feet high. When you consider the size of most rooms, it’s pretty certain that these are designed for large rooms and home. It probably wouldn’t fit in most apartments. So if you’re going to buy one of these makes sure you measure the room. Another thing to keep in mind is that you want to have enough space to walk. If your room is 7 feet wide, and you put this huge bing bag in there you will only have about 3 inches on each side of it to walk or stand (6 inches left by the bean bag divided by 2 because there are 2 sides).

So, assuming you have enough room for this jumbo giant, the question a lot of people ask it. How do you shop that colossal furniture? Here’s how..

Shipping Giant Bean Bags

giant bean bag unpackingThese bean bag actually comes, not in one box, but several: http://www.giant-bean-bags.com/collections/huge-bed. Depending on the size, you’ll either get 2 or 3 boxes. One is for the microsuede cover and the liner. The other boxes are for the foam filling. They are vacuum sealed and packed into their respective boxes for shipping.

Once it arrives at your house, you open up the box. Be careful not to cut anything inside. Remember, it’s vacuum-sealed so it will be very snugly in its’ plastic wrapping. You remove then cover and liner and unfold it. Then you open up the box with the foam filling for your giant bean bag bed and you dump the foam into the liner. At first, it’ll seem like there isn’t enough foam. But, as air gets to the foam filling it will expand again to its normal, fluffy size and fill up that entire lining. You can expedite this process by breaking it up with your hands through the liner. Before the huge bean bag bed has fully expanded, you’ll want to sling that liner filled with the foam into the microsuede cover while it’s still easy to do. If you wait too long, it will be hard to get it in there.

After about 24 hours your giant  bean bag will have fully expanded to its giant sized capabilities and will be ready for you to relax on it.
