I hate to say this, but I think I screwed up big time. I bought a firm Excelsior model a little over a year ago back when I was a single guy. Met the soon to be wife shortly after getting the bed and guess what? The mattress absolutely kills her back because her body type isn't suited for a firm mattress. At first I was in denial and thought she might be able to adjust to it, but it doesn't look like that is going to happen. Now... she hasn't said that the mattress has to go, but unless we want to sleep in separate beds for the rest of our lives (I don't), something has to give. Between this and paying for medical school, the bed simply must go.
Does anyone have any experience with selling a used high priced bed? A luxury bed must be one of the most illiquid assets one could own, so I have no clue what to do in this scenario. I'm really weary of using Craiglist for a high priced item like this. Friends and family aren't interested and the credit from selling it to Hastens is measly.
I have a three-year old Hastens King Mattress, bed frame and topper. Specifically:
1 Håstens Excelsior King Medium in Silver (tan) check
1Håstens BJX Mattress Topper in Silver check
2 Håstens Excelsior Bases
8 (2 Sets) 6" Oak Leg Posts
My husband and I discovered the Håstens Excelsior during our stays at the St. Cecelia in Austin. We loved the sleep we got on the Håstens and decided that we wanted one for home. With an upcoming move, there will no longer be room for a King mattress.
Both topper and mattress are in impeccable shape with no stains or rips. I have used a silk and cotton mattress pad always on both the mattress and the pad. As per care instructions, I've rolled and shaken loose the topper with each change of sheets and have walked on the mattress to keep the horsehair from settling.
I paid $11,000 for the floor model, which was a significant reduction in the original price. My asking price is $6000 or (best offer) for all of the pieces. Buyer handles shipping and handling. I am located downtown in Seattle in a building with a loading dock and a freight elevator.
I'm happy to provide pictures and to answer any questions.
Jenny, I know your post is from July, but I'm wondering if the bed is still available?

IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED, I AM LOOKING TO SELL MY AMAZING UK SIZED HASTENS LUXURIA BED BEFORE I MOVE FROM NYC ON JANUARY 1, 2016!!! PLEASE SEE DESCRIPTION BELOW OR VIEW EBAY LINK TO PURCHASE: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hastens-Luxuria-BJX-Luxury-7x7-Divan-Set-in-Natural-Check-/131557860360?
THANKS & HAPPY HUNTING!
I'm selling my fabulous NATURAL CHECK colored Hästens LUXURIA MEDIUM TENSION MATTRESS, BJX LUXURY TOPPER w/ matching SPLIT-BASE PLATFORM & DAVID HEADBOARD (HIGH) divan set made in the United Kingdom w/ UK dimensions (215cm x 215cm OR 7.053ft x 7.053ft)!!!
These beds are hand made from the finest quality materials and come with a 25-year guarantee. The beds are hand made to order and made from natural materials allowing for a great nights sleep.
I'm a personal assistant to A-List celebrities but one extremely kind & special boss in particular purchased this one for me while we visited the Hästens Birger Jarlsgatan store in Stockholm in 2012, having it delivered to my LA home by surprise! I just moved to NYC was so excited to have it shipped here! Upon arrival to my new apartment, I found out the moving company lost the legs during the 2,000 mile move, got light dust marks on the sides & managed to spill what appears to be a coffee on the headboard but none of it was as big of an issue as discovering it is completely too big for the apartment/space I have here :-(
I LOVE THIS BED TOO MUCH TO LET ANYTHING HAPPEN TO IT & ALMOST MAKES ME NERVOUS HAVING IT, so I only want someone who can fully enjoy & appreciate it in all of its glory to purchase it!
This bed has been used lightly by one person only and not every night as I often travel on tours w/ my boss. It has 23-years of its guarantee/warranty still remaining and well worth the price.

BED - $13,450.00+ US
HEADBOARD - $1,730.00 US
TOTAL - $15,180.00 US
ASKING ONLY $5,250.00/OBO US (Shipping NOT INCLUDED; NOR accepting offers below $3000.00)

I am happy to assist with the shipping but all shipping costs must be paid by purchaser - HOWEVER I'LL PAY ALL SHIPPING COSTS FOR ANYONE PAYING THE "BUY IT NOW" PRICE WITHIN THE UNITED STATES, which I will provide by request.
