A History of Waterbeds and our Company
Wood frame Waterbeds became very popular in the 70’s and 80’s. In fact, statistics show a quarter of the United Sates population owned a wood frame waterbed during that time.
This created a big demand for a reliable and capable delivery and set up service. That is when we started our waterbed company under the name of "Rapid Waterbed Service". We had a trained team that offered delivery and set up service for stores as well as a waterbed moving service for customer. There were a lot of waterbed stores in Southern California back then and Rapid Waterbed Service was the go-to company for stores and customers.
In the early 1980’s a Softside Flotation Waterbed was created and it was a big hit. Its actually a waterbed that looks like a regular box spring and mattress and accepts conventional sheets and furniture. Today a lot of customers are replacing their bulky wood frame waterbeds with the new style Modern Flotation Sleep System.
In the early 90’s waterbed stores were becoming a little scarce but we maintained our commitment to serve waterbed customers and found ourselves filling orders by phone and shipping product across the United State and even to some International customers.
In 1994 when the INTERNET started to become widely available, we opened our Online store, TheWaterbedDoctor.com to online shoppers.
We expanded our product line to include complete bedroom sets, as well as a full line of replacement parts and maintenance products.
The Waterbed Doctor has been taking care of waterbed customers across the globe since 1976, offering Free Shipping on every product going to the lower 48 states.
