Answer
Hi Kim
Unless your friends are willing to chip in and pay up. Don't listen. they have nothing on the line(money). Now remember I don't see the piece we are talking about so still be cautious.
Before you buy this piece can you tell me if there are any sharp turns to or after the entry
are there stairs or elevator you'll be using? Can the legs come off the sofa? Can the door come off the hinges? Will your friends be the ones delivering or professionals?

When it comes to sectionals one piece has a side that is Like one big sofa with one side higher than the other. Where the corner seat would be.
You know after reading it again how long are these pieces separately ? If these pieces are smaller than the length of the door than your good to go?
The door width  is 74 and the height is?????? Get back to me so I can help. Peace Love and Happiness
