Bed bug prevention?

We are receiving a well taken cared of glider by a family friend. They kept it in their home at all times and we don't suspect that they have bed bugs at all, but because of my mothers recent infestation (glider is not coming from her), it has had me paranoid to bits!! We are on a tight budget so the glider is very much appreciated, we just want to take necessary precautions of preventing any type of infestation on all furniture we take in (glider would be only used furniture we have). Again, like I said, it was very well taken cared of and there's no reason to suspect that they may have bed bugs, just taking prevention measures. Any tips for doing so before we put it into our own home?
