Moving Furniture/sofa through small doorway


I Lazy boy stationary leather sofa 96 in long, 40 in wide and 32 in tall at highest point (after the legs are removed.) Also, the highest point (at middle back of couch) can't really be pushed down any since it wood with only a small amount of padding. On either side of this point the sofa tapers down to about 28 in.

I need to bring it through a 30 inch doorway.  The doorway is standard height about 80 inches.  Also this room is a add on so there is a weird configuration. You would first need to bring sofa straight through another room with a 32 inch doorway and then make a slight jog to the left to put it through the 30 inch doorway straight into a room.  There is about 2 feet of space (at closest point/3 feet at farthest point) in between doorways.

Is this possible?

Hi Jackie
I'm sorry what's a jog ? Same as a turn? You spoke of one doorway but at the end you added another. To many obstacles , if it was going straight in you would have a chance. But what I/m gathering is this is a room to the right or left of a hallway which isn't very wide. not enough room for the sofa to maneuver. You can have it disassembled by a professional service.
