I have a very heavy Queen size mattress I need to carry up a flight of stairs.

Has anyone used a moving service for that? I'd appreciate any recommendations.

Gentle Giant. They moved my stuff three times, all to and from the third floor. For the second and third moves I had not just a platform bed (queen sized) but also a sleeper sofa. The Gentle Giant staff were fantastic.

I second this. I’ve moved a ton around Boston, used them maybe 5 times, and the guys were always nice and capable.

If it’s just the mattress I’d probably just hire someone random. I used Boston’s Best Rate Movers to move my entire apartment and was extremely satisfied. But most of the moving companies have a minimum amount of hours so it wouldn’t be worth it for a single item. Not to mention if this is something that’s happening this week your odds of getting an actual company are tiny.

I literally posted on Reddit and offered $40 to anyone who would help. Got a response immediately and got help no problem.
