There are many components that make up the entirety of a bed, so when it comes to an exact weight, you will have to take each element into consideration separately first.
The mattress:Your average spring mattress can weigh between 100-150 pounds, depending on whether it is a single, queen, king, etc. If your mattress is made out of durable latex, and is very thick, it could be as heavy as 300 pounds in some instances. Air mattresses will generally be much lighter, and waterbeds will be much heavier when filled.
The headboard:You may or may not have a headboard, but if you do, it’s probably somewhere between 70-175 pounds, varying in weight due to size and construction material.
Bed frame, wooden: Generally, wooden bed frames range from 50-200 pounds. Some woods like Pine are much lighter than other solid woods like Oak. If you have a metal bed frame, your average weight is probably something more like 50-75 pounds.
Box spring: The average weight for a queen-sized box spring is between 60-105 pounds, so smaller sized beds like singles, will be significantly less (more like 50 pounds).
Bed canopy: These decorative pieces range significantly in weight depending on what they are made of and on their sizing, but you can expect somewhere around 80-200 pounds.
