Moving Furniture/Sofa round tight corner


Hi. Hope you can help. I've just seen a sofa in our local charity shop which I would like to buy. But they won't take it back if it doesn't fit.  It measures 68.5" long x 34" high x 35" deep. No detachable bits.

Our front doorway is 77" high x 30" wide into a small hallway 45" long x 39" wide. If we make it that far, the sofa then needs to turn through a doorway on the right-hand side of this hallway(28" x 77"), presumably by swiveling to the left as there is no space to swivel on the right. In order to do this I think we will need to rotate the sofa by 180 degrees in the hallway but not sure if there will be space. Do you think we can do it? Hope this makes sense

I hope I will be able to help :)

To be 100% certain all measurements of the sofa should be less than what the measurements of the clearance, however facts such as shape of the sofa, arms and back that will allow sofa to be tilted and or passed through the door diagonally makes a big difference.

According to your measurements they should work if shape of the sofa arms or legs allowing you to swing back or arm first and then turn standing up s0 saying different way arround if arms lower than back and it is not compeltely squere box type.

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: tel.: 1 718-268-2727, 1-646-688-4026
Good luck to you!
