Moving Furniture/New Sofa


QUESTION: I just bought a new sofa - dimensions are 90" long, 39" high and 39" deep.  My entry doorway is 35" x 78".  It's a straight shot from the doorway into the living room - no corners and no stairs.  Do you think this sofa will fit through the doorway? I have included a pic of the sofa.  Hope to hear soon as they are supposed to deliver on Saturday!!

Will be tight See if the legs come off. If they do your good to go. If they don't they might get a little scuffed getting in. The drivers will have to know what there doing. Peace Love and Happiness

QUESTION: OK. Thanks for your quick response.  One other question.  I CAN cancel this delivery and pick something else but am not sure what kind of dimensions I should be looking for to make it an easy fit through the doorway.  Any thoughts/suggestions?

Hi Marg
If the legs come off your good to go. Even with them on I believe I could get it in. But I'm not the one delivering I don't know who's delivering the sofa . If there good you got no problem.
When shopping for furniture your always looking to find out if the legs come off and what the height of the sofa is. As long as the height is lower than the with of your doorway your good to go. See if the door can come off the hinges. Give you another inch sometimes.
