So, I went to social media, asking drivers if I could pull the mattress retailers and wholesalers in, would they be interested. The answer across the table was YES! These drivers have already been searching down where to spend their money at for a better mattress. They agree with me; your mattress in your home away from home should be as comfortable, if not more so, than the one at home.
There are a lot of companies on the ledge of agreeing to cater to truckers' needs. Their issue falls into one thing.............they're nervous. They want to come, but they want to see that the interest is there. This release from me is not just standing to show you that we have two companies entirely signed on that want to take care of you, but to let you know that corporate bed companies are now watching. Your likes, tweets, and comments will tell them you want to sleep nice!
There are some revolutionary items that will work perfect with teams that I'm waiting to have them come all the way over. It would allow an almost perfect (let's face it, no truck on bumpy highways will be completely perfect) sleep while your partner is driving. They are the most nervous about coming over, but I love their products.
James McClaskey will start testing another product for beds, to see if it would work in a truck or not.
This could be the start of something awesome. We just need your help, suggestions, and feedback to make it happen. Let us, and the bed companies, know what you need. Like this, and share it with other truckers.
We want you to sleep soundly, quit tossing and turning. We want you to feel better. We want you to not be driving fatigued due to bad mattresses. (Maybe you company drivers can even nudge your bosses enough to make sure you're comfortable also. After all, it is a safety issue.)
How does your mattress affect your health?
From the Back Pain Expert: Anyone who has ever suffered from a bad back will know how much pain and discomfort can be exacerbated by a poor mattress, but it is not just those with existing back complaints who can benefit from a good mattress; back pain may actually be preventable by investing in a good quality mattress and bed.
If your mattress is affecting sleep due to discomfort, it can literally make you sick. Your body is less likely to fight off infections due to a weakened immune system if you're sick. It can also lead to mental illness, sexual issues, lead to a higher rate of accidents, cause early aging, and lead to a myriad of other health issues, not to mention risking the chance of DOT shutting you down for fatigued driving.
