How to Safely Transport a Mattress on the Roof of Your Car

When not secured to a vehicle properly, mattresses in transport can soar off and turn into missiles. Several videos of flying mattresses show it happening so fast, that some cars can’t get out of the way in time. To illustrate how improperly secured mattresses can wreak havoc on the road, Inside Edition enlisted the help of AAA’s Robert Sinclair. We tied a mattress on top of a roof rack using the twine and drove down the race track at New Jersey Motorsports Park to see if it would fly off or stay tied down.

  • I try not to drive behind ppl with stuff on the roof....or with anything that looks like a "final destination" type situation. My rule, speed up and pass them or slow down and get in another lane far away from the potential travesty.

  • Ratchet straps ruin mattress, moved furniture for 3+ years. Makes a big bump from overtightening so you know. And I could tie down a mattress with floss if need be, just use the right method. Plus I've never seen any furniture store "make the customer" do it. America is spelt l.i.a.b.i.l.i.t.y.

  • I mean, isn't it common sense to use a ratchet strap? Better yet, find a friend with a truck and give him a 6 pack.

  • Should do a test that if you can shake the vehicle only by tugging on the mattress and it doesn't come off, then it should be good to drive, but still need to drive slow. Or take local roads even if it takes a little longer. I've moved a mattress around, ratchet straps usually work well to get a solid hold on a mattress. I was inexperienced but I made it work.

  • Every time I see a load that looks in any way sketchy on the road ahead, I drop waaaay back and watch. That woman whose car was hit by the mattress could have been safe if she had started backing off sooner. Just take your foot off the accelerator until you have some reaction time for what's inevitably coming at you fast and hard.

  • One time when my sister was driving, a giant tarp was flying down the highway. We narrowly avoided it, but I looked back and saw it color another cars windshield. I was so scared they were gonna crash, and I can only imagine what the people inside that car were thinking...probably screaming if I were them.

  • This needs to be outlawed in my opinion. One guy around me was driving a petroleum truck and tried to swerve to avoid a mattress. I’m sure you can guess what happened next. Rent a truck/suv for the mattress (to go inside) or secure it properly on top of the car.
