Moving Furniture/Assessing whether a sofa will fit

Question
Hi there,

I'm trying to work out whether I can get a sofa into my sitting room... and struggling!

I live in a ground floor flat and coming in through the door isn't likely to work (there's a main front door, then a very small hallway, then an internal front door to the flat, which is narrower than a standard door and leads straight in to a narrow hall with no turning room whatsoever).

So, the best option seems to be the large sash window that leads directly into to the sitting room from the front of the house. The dimensions of the window and sofa are below - there is plenty of room to angle the sofa on either side of the window.

Thanks very much for taking  look at this!

Mike

Sofa: 225cm wide x 105cm deep x 72cm high

Window: 97.5cm high x 91cm wide

Answer
HI

I hope we will be able to help,

As per your description sounds per me that best option to have sofa disassembled and assembled back less headache and 2-3 hours job done sofa inside cost is just few hundreds nothing big.

Yes option with window also an option but more headache related need movers more people contractors and same or more expense for sure.

Best Furniture disassembly and assembly company I can vouch for is www.furnitureservices.com

Good Luck
