What to Consider Before Purchasing Second Hand Bunk Beds

At Home from Home we stock a wide range of second hand beds. After doing some research online we have found some useful tips on what to consider before purchasing second hand bunk beds.

The best way to select a set of second hand bunk beds is to actually examine a set that is already assembled. Place your hands on the top bunk and try to shake the entire assembly. Be sure to question any movement.

Another important thing to keep in mind is the manufacturer’s recommendation for weight limits. How large are the children that will be using the bunk beds? The lightest child should use the top bunk. However, it is wise to consider the age of the child as well, since there can be safety concerns with very small children.

Carefully examine second hand bunk beds made from tubular metal. They look cool, but some are not well built. Make sure the set is sturdy. The best sets are those that have a full bed on the bottom and a twin bed on top. The wider lower bed helps create better balance.

Another thing to keep in mind is how simple or difficult bunk beds will be to assemble. They look easy, but they can be a little tricky if you do not have a lot of experience with putting things together. Read the directions carefully. If you have trouble, ask someone to help you. You want to make sure the second hand bunk beds are put together securely before your children sleep in them.

Consider purchasing second hand bunk beds that can also be taken apart and used separately. This will give you more options as your children get older. If you purchase a good, sturdy set of bunk beds that can later be used as separate twin beds, it will be a good investment that you can use for years to come.
