Moving Furniture/Will sofa fit through door

Advertisement


Question
I am looking to order a large leather sofa-but am concerned it may not fit through my UPVC front door. My door measures 191cm x 72cm. The sofa is 198cm in length and 88cm both width and height (I am unsure whether the height is with the feet on or off and am guessing they measure around 8-10cm. The door is raised above ground level and you have to step up about 20cm to enter, as you enter there is a large recess immediately to the left at the foot of the stairs which is about 90 x 90cm square. Do you think the delivery guys will get it through the door given the length of the sofa is greater than the height of the door? Many thanks for your advice in advance

Answer
HI
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 checking if legs removable, shape of the sofa, arms and back that are not on the same level with each other will allow sofa to be tilted and or passed through the door diagonally makes a big difference.

According to your measurements they do not look too promising, but same time not as mission impossible - depends on the shape/legs clearance before and after - ability to turn in or get back in or arm first and rotate if needed etc.  

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