How might JA help? We are an information service.
This is quite common to not use a box spring in a twin bed, you are correct. This sounds like a delivery mistake.
Call the mattress people they usually have no fee for a mistake on their end and will pick it up free of charge and bring your mattress out.
So sorry for this huge hassle.
Best wishes, Dori
