Emma Sleep: Premium B-Stock Supply Seller
Featured auctions are available for approved B2B buyers to bid on new condition mattresses and accessories. This includes primarily overstock and customer returns in categories like home living and furniture. For UK buyers looking for excess or surplus stock, liquidated goods, ex-catalouge furniture, and other unsold inventory, Emma Sleep should be on your radar.
Inventory type includes:
- Mattresses (Full, Queen, Cal King, King)
- Mattress toppers
Resellers and sole traders then acquire this inventory to introduce into the secondary market, all while offering their customers a good deal and profiting along the way. Let’s go over why you should be interested in this type of inventory and how to start buying Emma Sleep liquidation.
What makes Emma Sleep inventory valuable?
Mattresses need replacement just like any appliance or winter coat would. According to the Sleep Foundation, mattresses have a seven-year lifespan. The best part is that they will always be considered an essential purchase! Your resale business has the opportunity to capture the eyes of online shoppers looking to snag a deal on their next mattress replacement purchase.
Let’s talk retail price per unit. When you purchase overstock mattresses or excess liquidation inventory in general, you are spending far less per unit because you are purchasing in bulk. One full-priced mattress could easily be €600-€660. Now imagine a half truckload of 200 mattresses. If you did the math, you know that’s an estimated retail cost of nearly €129,000! Now with auction start prices as low as €1,000 coming into play, that’s a lot of merchandise at a mere fraction of the cost! When you go on to resell your individual goods closer to RRP, you’re making quite the profit.
How to buy Emma Sleep overstock and returned mattresses
All buyers must be registered as a business and provide a VAT identification number. VAT stands for value-added tax and lets you buy liquidation pallets tax-free, with the expectation that you charge this tax to your customers when an item sells.
How items are sold
European buyers can browse auctions that interest them and place bids based on the retail value of the goods. The most important auction details will be listed in the auction title. For example, the title “Half Truckload of Mattresses, 111 Pieces, New Condition, Est. Original Retail €49,550, Minden-Lübbecke, DE” tells you the shipment type, inventory type, quantity, condition, estimated retail, and where it’s coming from.

The number of miles your lot has to travel to get to you directly impacts the cost of shipping. That’s why shipment size and location are important considerations for determining the best auction for you. Emma Sleep currently ships inventory out from the following location:
Emma Sleep has lot sizes that range from half truckload to less than half truckload. Pallet sizes measure at 95 x 48 x 71 cm. A truckload has 24 pallets and an LTL auction (less than truckload) has a max of 11 pallets per each truckload (TL).
- Less than half truckload – 12 and fewer pallets
- Half truckload – 12-16 pallets
- Truckload – 21-32 pallets
Note: 12 and 21 are UK sizes; 16 and 32 are EU sizes.
Remember, furniture inventory is often bulky, and some items may be on other pallets or separated! Emma Sleep’s inventory will be palletised and roll-packed, this means the mattress will be rolled and vacuum-packed and fit into a box.

Tips for reselling liquidation mattresses
Think through storage
Storing mattresses takes a good amount of physical space. More than just a handful of these can be overwhelming if you don’t have the storage or warehouse space to accommodate your inventory. If you are just seeking overstock in its original packaging, you will have an easier time moving, stacking, and storing boxes over a customer-returned mattress.
Don’t forget that inventory that is heavy and bulky will cost more to ship. (And you still have to take mileage into account!) Furniture buyers should also have the appropriate equipment to unload their inventory, such as a liftgate. If you’re looking for inventory that is easier to ship and mail out to customers, then you may want to pursue other inventory types.
Highlight any strong selling points
Emma Sleep mattresses have some notable features like temperature regulating materials, seven-zone dynamic support, and machine-washable covers. Highlight selling points such as these in your product descriptions or listing titles when you’re reselling Emma Sleep returns. Or any returns for that matter!
