http://www.bigfactoryoutlet.com/round-ball-chair-black-shell-red-fabric/
Hi, the ball chair dimensions I would like to buy are H120cm(approx 47inch) W105cm(41in) D73cm(29in) it says in the link you can remove the shell and the stand to make it easier, and this chair is designd to go through 72cm (28in) standard doorways.

Im unsure on the hieghts but they are all taller than the chair so I cant imagine it will be much problem. front door W76(30in) living room door 73cm(29in) and hallway 86cm(34in) my question is will it fit through my hallway, I know there will be some angling to do it, but will it move through to get to the doorway? Thanks.

Answer
Hello Marvin,

There will be no problem getting through the hallway. The chair should be positioned so that the front and the back of the chair FACES the hallway walls. It can be carried vertically or horizontally in this position.

All in all you should be fine. The first doorway will be close but should slide right through. Thank you for converting measurements to inches.

Let me know how everything goes...."HAPPY NEW YEAR"!

Moving your furniture. I would like to answer all questions dealing with the proper techniques of how to move ANY type of furniture, including difficult doorways and stairways. Also, all questions dealing with the proper packing of breakables including antiques. All general questions concerning the moving and storage industry will be answered. I cannot recommend a particular mover in a person`s neighborhood but i can explain how to obtain a company in good standing with the community. I have been in the moving and storage industry for almost four decades! I am located in Massachusetts.

Experience

I have almost four decades of experience in the moving & storage industry. When I was a small boy my father introduced me into the moving business and I have been hooked ever since. At first I started out as a young laborer untill I was old enough to drive a furniture van. As time went on I drove 18-wheelers around the country moving small shipments as well as large corporate relocations. I was taught the old school methods by men that were craftsman in their field. I learned how to pack the most delicate of breakables as well as museum pieces. It was common practice to do estimates and even the actual ratings on interstate jobs. Doing commercial moves were a big part of my moving career over the years. Some of the big names that I delt with were "GE","MICROSOFT","FIDELITY INVESTMENTS" AND "AMERICAN EXPRESS". As the years went by my family retired and sold the business (not my choice). I went on to establish my own moving company which ran for 12 years before I phased out the physical moving itself. Today I have developed a consulting service where I advise future furniture buyers as well as people moving for the first time on what to expect from their upcoming adventure. Furniture buyers are advised on what size furniture will fit through their narrow doorways and tight hallways. By choosing furniture with the right dimensions will narrow down the probability of the furniture being returned back to the store. That is not a scenario people want after waiting 8-12 weeks for their new furniture. I can also help people to understand the proper procedures of a first time move in their lives. I tell them what is to be expected,how they can save money,how to choose a good mover and what is involved with getting the packing done.
