What Should I Expect After I Order?

It’s important you know exactly what to expect after you order your new Helix Mattress so you can rest easy before you rest better!

  • Delivery

  • All Helix products ship for free in the US!


    After your order is placed you will receive a standard confirmation email which outlines the products in your order. Please note that in order to maintain our low prices and high quality, our products ship separately oftentimes from different manufacturers. For our mattresses, you can expect the following shipping times:


    • Helix Standard: 3-7 Business Days

    • Helix LUXE: 6-10 Business Days


    It takes anywhere from 1-4 Business Days on average to build your perfect mattress. During this time period, we unfortunately cannot provide an update on when your item will ship.


    We ship all of our products (except the Adjustable Base) via UPS and FedEx. Once your item ships from our facilities, we will send you an email with your tracking number. You can use this tracking number to follow your package directly via the UPS and FedEx portals. Generally speaking, you do not need to be home to receive the package however your UPS or FedEx drive reserves the right to hold the package until a signature is obtained.

  • You can follow the instructions in the box. We recommend you do not keep your Helix Mattress roll packed in its original packaging for more than 2 weeks.

  • First 30 Nights - Adjustment Period

Many customers find that there is an adjustment period during the first few weeks with your Helix Mattress. This is common for all new mattresses as you get used to sleeping on something new. Keep in mind, your Helix Mattress is like a new pair of shoes. It will take a bit of breaking in.


We encourage you to trust the science and give your new Helix Mattress a chance. That’s why we require you to keep your mattress for 30 nights to adjust to the break-in period.

    If the feel of your mattress isn’t quite right, you can reach out to our Customer Experience Team and they will be able to send you a free additional comfort layer to either make the mattress feel softer or firmer depending on your preference 100% free! We find that these small changes help the vast majority of customers who aren’t fully satisfied.


    You are free to request a feel adjustment anytime during the 100 Night Sleep Trial, including during the first 30 nights.
