Moving Furniture/Will the sofa fit through my door ?


Hi Paul,

I am looking at purchasing a second hand sofa and can't figure out if it will fit through my front door.  The sofa measures height 78 cm width 2006 cm depth 98 cm the feet are removable and are 10 cm, this may just make the diference I'm hoping. The front door is 68 cm x 189 cm.
Do you think the sofa will fit ?

Best Wishes


hi Fiona
Can the door come off the hinges? Other than that tight (very tight)
Legs have to come off. Any sharp turns? Is there room on either side of entry?
Also the arm height would have to be under 65cm for this to work. If so stand the sofa up with arms facing doorway. Bring bottom arm in while leaning the other arm the other way just enough. As you bring that bottom arm in halfway start rotating once back goes through pick that side up and let the other side down and continue the rotation that should work.
If the door comes off though all this writing was for nothing cause you'll be good to go.
Peace Love and Happiness
