Question
Hi Mikayel,

I would like to purchase a sofa with the below dimension
90.6" (w) x 43.3" (d) x 25.6" (h)

and my elevator size
Door - 39.4" (w) x 82.6" (h)
Internal - 59.0" (w) x 80.7" (d) x 82.6(h)

I need to confirm because the furniture shop practice no refundable policy.
Thanks.

Answer
HI
I hope I will be able to help :)
Are there any walls after or before door frame on both sides or not, is the sofa square shape or rounded, what is the width of the hallway and height of the ceiling, etc. According to your measurements they may fit because one of the measurements bellow the clearance, as well as there will be most likely possibility of tilting or putting side ways. It is not possible to say for sure becuase there are more thinks involved than simple majoring - but I am positively sure should fit.

If you like the sofa it will get inside :). My suggestion will be let the delivery company deliver it and try it, hopefully will fit, in case if it did not fit there are companies who can disassemble and assemble it for you. One of the best companies I would suggest is "All Furniture Services" they very professional, they work 24/7 they do not charge extra for same day service and almost always they can send you someone right away. I'm not sure how much exactly they charge but it is very affordable and considering work I would say cheap. Their web:  http://www.furnitureservices.com tell: 1-347-528-7777, 1-888-575-6757, 1 718-268-2727, 1-646-688-4026
Good luck to you!
